Bondi Band shot. No slipping!

So, what are Bondi Bands? They are headbands made with folks who live an active lifestyle in mind. Made of stretchy, breathable fabric, they boast the ability to fit virtually any head size. So, how did mine work for me? Great! The Bottom Line: I love this thing. I have to admit I was a little dubious at first. My hair is really straight and fine-textured, so finding a headband that actually stays in my hair for any length of time is HARD. Mostly, they slip out during my workouts and generally just irritate me. And, when I first put this one on and wore it around, I worried that it too might slip. I found myself constantly reaching up and making micro adjustments for - as it turns out - no really good reason. The band was solid.

The Giveaway - Now Closed
So, now for the giveaway. Thanks to Wisconsin Bondi Band rep Rachel Tattum, I have two gorgeous Bondi Bands to give away. Both are adult sizes. One is more for the girly-girl (pink hearts) and one is for the Packer fan. I covet both of them, but I swear I have not worn them. They are brand-spanking new. I will have a hard time parting with them, but part with them I will.
Now, I guess this is where I am supposed to say that you have to be a follower of my blog to get one of these, but after some thought, I am not going to do that. I really am writing this more for me, so simply follow if you are interested. Otherwise, more importantly, to enter the giveaway you need to do one of two things: simply leave a comment below OR on my Facebook page saying that you're in for the contest and which band you'd prefer by March 24. I'll randomly pick one person for each band on March 25 and announce the winners via this blog on March 26. (Note: contest limited to US addresses.) That's it! Easy peasy! Feel free to pass this along.
Giveaways not your thing? No problem! I know that there are two running stores in Wisconsin that sell them - Run Away Shoes and Fleet Feet Fox Valley both in Appleton. To contact the Wisconsin rep directly, e-mail Rachel Tattum at
