B.I.C. Bands Review and GIVEAWAY!

Hooray, it's giveaway time! Today I am giving away B.I.C workout headbands.

Thank you to Sandy for agreeing to send me some to try out and some to giveaway to my readers!

B.I.C=Because I Can bands.

From their website:
B.I.C. Bands will not slip~ (SERIOUSLY!) They are great for any workout, a trip to the coffee shop, going out with friends, work....you name it, your B.I.C. Band will keep your hair looking FAB! They are headbands that stay in place and help others win their race!



I love how the company started--

These amazing headbands started all as a fundraiser for my run with Team In Training. I was looking for a way to raise the necessary funds to run my first half marathon. I had started to make some handy dandy headband that didn't slip because I was cheap and crafty~ friends said they'd buy them, so I decided to try my hand at making and selling them. My small little venture began and I started sewing. I donated the profits to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. OVER $1000 was raised through the sale of B.I.C. Bands! Because B.I.C. Bands were been such a hit after my race, I decided to keep making and selling the bands, and keep giving back to those in need!

I tried out these two cute headbands while working out recently.

The thin white one is great for the gym or for dressing up because it's sparkly. The only thing I noticed is that it slips a bit in the back of my head. Maybe it's the shape of my head or that my hair is slippery? The thicker polka dot one doesn't really tend to do this.

Here's the polka dot one.

These headbands stood the test of an outdoor walk, working out on the elliptical, stretching, and lifting weights.

I also went for a bike ride with the polka dot one this morning.
