BIC Bands Giveaway!!!!!!

Sandy, the awesome creator of BIC Bands and the author of A Mom On The Run has offered to let me host a BIC Bands giveaway!

BIC Bands ~ Because I Can Bands ~ We run because we can...for those who can't, so that one day they will!

Sandy is so great because she donates $1 from the sale of each BIC Band to a new charity each month! 
 
I ordered one BIC Band from Sandy and she sent me another one to try out.  She makes thick, thin, and skinny bands. And there are so many colors and designs to choose from. I got to try a thick band and a thin band. Here are the two that I recieved.
 
 I picked out the red and white checkered thin one because I am going to be wearing that one with my New Orleans Rock N Roll Half marathon outfit! It is a thin band. The other one has seashells on it and it is thicker than the red and white. 

Aren't they so GREAT!?

The Review

When I let Sandy know which BIC Bands I'd like to try, she shipped them right away and I got them within the next two days. I love that they shipped so quickly! I didn't have to wait pretty much at all for them.

As soon as I took them out of the package I could tell that they were of great quality.
 
 
These BIC Bands have a felt type material on the underside of the design. I have worn these each time I have ran for the past 2 weeks. I have ran many times in that period as well as playing basketball and Zumba class! It stayed on the entire time and NEVER SLIPPED! I have done lots of jumping and I even wore them out to eat one day as just a normal headband. It never even moved! 

I have recieved lots of comments on them, because there is not that many people where I am from that run often, so when they would see me wearing a BIC Band, they would ask where I got it or how much did I pay for it. 
 
Sandy told me that some people prefer the thick band and others will prefer the thin. I love both sizes, but the thin one is the style that I absolutely love!!! I can't wait to get some more! I also have a zebra print one that I bought before, that is one of my top favorites! 
 
It is really hard to see, but I have the red and White checkered BIC Band on, however this day it was around 40 degrees when I went to run, so I had on a beenie, gloves and everything else you see. I headed out and ran 12 MILES! Yes, you heard me right, 12 miles! The BIC Band NEVER slipped anywhere. I had taken off my beenie a couple of times and the BIC band was still in the same place. 
 
 
Here is what the thicker band looks likes on me though...

I like to wear mine closer to my forehead, but you can move it back some on your head if you prefer that.

I'm so crazy...I left a comment earlier talking about you being from New Orleans...I guess I was thinking about the races you've done there, and that's why I made that connection. I guess this long work week has wracked my brain. LOL!
