Tuesday's Tunes: Sounds of Silence & a GIVEAWAY!

Since I'm not running today I don't have any tunes to report.  This WILL be the last week of my break so I will be back to posting my tunes next week.  Since today is the last day of school this will be the last day that, in theory, I get to post in silence for a few months.  Actually, in theory, if I post like I want to this summer  I will still enjoy the silence.  I tend to re-arrange the kids sleep schedule so they go to bed late and thus sleep in later.  A typical summer morning includes me getting up early (5-6 a.m.), getting my workout done and coming home while the kids are STILL sleeping.  I can enjoy my breakfast, coffee, computer time, etc all in silence.  No more walking in the door and turning back around to take oldest to school, coming home to pick up 2 more and taking them to school, then getting a 20 minute break before getting the last 2 to school.  Our typical school routine leaves me coming and going with 5 minute lapses here and there and making it impossible to get any blogging or productive computer time in until almost 9 a.m. and honestly by then I should be gearing up to clean the house, run errands and start my day.  So, it's fair to say, I am REALLY looking forward to our summer schedule.

To kick off summer I have a product review & giveaway for Bondi Band.

In 2010, I had been searching for something to help with my heavy sweating and came across their website.  The product looked worth trying and the long list of cute sayings and amazing colors on their headbands helped seal the deal.  Once I had my first few I was hooked and never tried any other product for a headband use.  These bands are AMAZING!  Bondi Band is my first & only choice.  In fact, I think I've become a little addicted.  I have 21 bands and constantly want more.  I promise though (this really only applies to my husband) that I won't purchase any more for the rest of this year.  Purchase....as in pay for.  If anyone wants to send me one...hey, I'm all for gifts.  And hey...my birthday IS coming up in July.  I'm just saying.....



Bondi Band has many great qualities about them.  First, they are so cute with lots of vibrant colors (or just black for those who want to keep it more simple) and the funniest, craziest, uh-huh that's right sayings that runners, cyclist, fitness enthusiast love to embrace.  You can also custom make your Bondi Band with any saying or logo.  We used Bondi Band a few years ago for a Zumbathon that the Y hosted.  They were very quick, efficient and gave us a great product that our Zumbathon participants loved!

Bondi Bands are top notch with holding sweat.  When I workout I am one heck of a sweater.  I'm always dripping wet from head to toe.  It doesn't matter if I'm inside on the treadmill with AC blasting and a fan blowing on me or if I'm outside in -0 to 100 degree temps.  When I workout and/or run I sweat like a pig.  I make Miss Piggy jealous!  Bondi bands always keep that sweat up & out of my eyes.  I love taking off my band and watching it sag several inches down because it is so loaded and full of my sweat.  It's unbelievable!

Bondi Band is perfect for use any time of the year.  They are nice & wide to help cover your head during colder temperatures.  They also fold nicely with your saying still showing for those warmer temps where you need something for your sweat, but don't need the coverage all over your head.  Bondi Band also carries other products such neck gators and pony tail hats.  I have also used those products, but am not providing a review on them at this time.

You can see from my pictures that I have many to choose from.  Only 1 is missing from my stash here.  Was too lazy to go pick it out of the dirty laundry.  Yet, I still hop over to Bondi Band from time to time and drool over more bands.  Help keep me accountable though....no more!

Two of my favorite people are going to be lucky receivers of these Bondi Bands.  I just need to get myself to the post office to get them mailed.  Anybody know how to get to the post office?  Or know anyone who WORKS at the post office?  Yeah, I know, it should be that simple.... (for those that don't know my husband is a Postmaster and goes in every day, yet for the life of me it takes forever to get something mailed)

The peeps at Bondi Band were very generous to give me the following bands for giveaway.  Actually, they gave me one to use myself for product review and another to giveaway.  Since I already have my own stack and am a HUGE fan (not to mention totally awesome and loves to give things away)  I am giving both of them away for two totally random people to win.

If you have never tried Bondi Band don't miss out on this opportunity to win one for FREE!  I picked colors and sayings so that it doesn't matter if you are a girl or guy you will look awesome in these bands.  If you already own and use Bondi Band, well here is a chance to add to your collection.  Either way ENTER TO WIN!

I am giving you lots of time and plenty of chances to enter the giveaway.  The giveaway will run until May 31, 2012.  I will start off the fabulous month of June with announcing the winners.


a Rafflecopter giveaway Bondi Band provided this product for review and giveaway. My thoughts and opinions on the product were strictly my own and I was not paid for anything I said.

  1. I want to win a Bondi Band because I'm too lazy to fold up one of my many bandanas (some of which I found while running).

  6. I might have to get one that says, "Don't be jealous that I sweat more than you." It would be appropriate!
    I love the RUN one, though- simple and to the point.
