Bondi Band Giveaway!



Bondi Band was kind enough to send me some products recently and I've been able to try them out. I have constant hair issues (I hate having hair in my face and mine goes mental when I run) and these are an excellent solution!

What Bondi Band has to say:

The simple premise of Bondi Bands is to offer comfy, colorful, and creative headbands to fit every lifestyle and personality.

By using stretchy and breathable material, we allow Bondi Bands to fit virtually every head size comfortably and fashionably.

Our buyers constantly search for the newest and trendiest fabric designs and complement them with traditional craftsmanship to bring our customers the best product available on the market.



Bondi Bands are available in countless styles and patterns, and they offer various hats and swim caps in addition to their trademark headbands.

Here's what I got to try:





(I love the ponytail hole in this hat!)




I also have a Goofy 2010 Bondi Band that I picked up at Disney and wore for both the half and full marathons.



What I love about Bondi:

Style! - pages upon pages of colorful, unique and FUN solids, patterns and sayings to choose from.

Versatility! Can be worn lower or higher on the forehead depending on the look/feel you are going for. Sometimes I even use mine as an ear-warmer (this is why I originally bought one in Alaska Florida).

Comfort! I barely know it's there thanks to the light Lycra material.

Staying Power! - Once the Bondi Band is in place, it does not move! With other headbands, I find I am constantly adjusting, but Bondi Bands stay put.


To WIN this Bondi Band:



1. Visit the website, click around and let me know what you think.

2. Become a fan of Bondi Band on Facebook.

3. Follow Mission to a(nother) Marathon, or let me know that you already do.

Entries accepted until Wednesday, March 8th at 12:00 Noon EST.

Those are cute! Now that my hair is long enough for a pony tail, i've resorted mostly to headbands. it might be nice to try a hat-with-a-hole. :) The reflective one would be nice!

So I've never tried out Bondi Bands, but I've wanted to for quite some time now. I love their designs and that their website has something for everyone. I'd love to try out a headband since spring is on its way (otherwise I'd like that ponytail hat).

That is the CUTEST headband ever. I love how these are so fat- my skinny headbands always slide off... After checking the site, I think I'd definitely want to get a matching set for my dog and I. Obsessed? Yes!!!
