My first giveaway

When I saw Skinny Runner’s post of the BIC Bands sale this morning with a portion of the proceeds going to Hurricane Sandy victims, I was stoked about it!!

I have a ton of BIC Bands already, seriously I think Sandy must know my address by heart.

I still wanted to support the cause and think doing a giveaway would be a win win for everyone.

One winner will get the Skinny Runner Special, which includes these 3 Limited Edition headbands. I dig the linen skinny one big time.


I love BIC Bands so much, I’m sure you will too.  I’m like your headband “dealer.”  Once you try them, you’ll be hooked and want more.

Bonus: You will never have to do your hair again!
