It’s hard to believe it, but it was nearly a year ago that I blogged about the awesomeness of giveaways and shared a few things that I have learned about them through the world of social networking. Since then, I have entered countless of them myself – sometimes to great avail (hello awesome Julie’s walkman giveaway + Shelby’s Larabars!) and others, well, y’know, it was all in the name of fun. Seriously. Through giveaways, I have discovered a lot of great blogs, and from those blogs, more blogs (by reading comments and such) and it’s just a win-win if you ask me!
In the spirit of these positive feelings, I am EXTREMELY pleased to announce that nearly 10 months after I announced I *might* be hosting my VERY FIRST giveaway, it is finally here! And even better, it is for a product that I am totally enamored with, and KNOW you will love, too!
So, what is this mystical, magical item that I will be giving away to ONE lucky reader?
Super amazing, TOTALLY UNSLIPPABLE and cute-to-boot Sweaty Bands!
Now, if you think that this is just an ordinary headband, well sister – you’d be totally wrong. And you know what – I was skeptical too – I mean, I have tried many headbands in the past, and with my super-fine wavy hair, I was pretty much resigned to the fact that I would just have to deal with my bangs in my face and sweat in my eyes. Even my beloved Lulu headband, that did its job pretty well for training runs – was totally useless when I hit the mat with Bikram.
But it all changed, just about two weeks ago.
See, I was browsing the Charlottesville Marathon Expo, which was taking place downtown, when I noticed these colorful headbands on display at the C’ville Running Company’s booth. I had seen them before, at previous expos and was always intrigued by their prettiness, but figured they were just that. Still, something compelled me to that headband – maybe it was the color combo – or the fact that I had cash in my wallet (I cannot keep cash to save my life!) but within a few minutes, it was off the rack…and on my head!
From there, I traversed the Downtown Mall and popped into Bikram Charlottesville for some afternoon yoga. Surely, 5 lbs of sweat and 26 postures would be an endurance test for my new fitness accessory!
Not even an inch! It was like GLUE. I was astonished.
Over the next week, I remained in AWE. From my treadmill workouts, to pilates DVD, 30 -day shred and even impromptu “can I make this thing budge” tests, it withstood all tests I set before it.
Yes! I pondered it myself, “how could a simple ribbon, backed with some velvet-y stuff and a small elastic band work such wonders?” It truly is one of life’s mysteries. But you could be one step closer to discovering the truth with this gorgeous headbands…
She could be yours! For just
4 payments of $29.99 – wait, that’s not right?!
