Punkeelove Headband giveaway!

Sorry to the guys...this is a girly-ish giveaway. BUT, guys could certainly still enter and win for a wife, daughter, girlfriend or someone else... or for yourself if that is your thing... no judgment here.  (And I promise my next two giveaways are gender neutral). :)

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win two awesome Punkeelove headbands from We Cover Your Head thanks to Running Diva Mom.

I have to say that I really, really love these headbands. I have tried quite a few different popular brand headbands marketed to runners and they either just don't stay put on my head or look goofy or are uncomfortable. I have a LOT of thick hair.

Punkeelove headbands come in several widths and LOTS of different cute styles and prints. They even make personalized headbands which are so fun and cute. But I think my favorite feature of the Punkeelove headbands is that they are adjustable! Each band has a row of holes and the cutest little button that you can use to adjust the small elastic portion of the headband on the back of your head. So you get a custom fit... not too tight, not too loose.

There are some other headbands out there that are very similar in appearance to the Punkeelove headbands, however they are not adjustable and I found that the longer elastic on those and shorter "material" design resulted in pointy corners hurting behind my ears. That has not been an issue with the Punkeelove bands at all. I have worn these for up to 20-mile runs and they have been very comfortable and have NOT budged.

Punkeelove headbands are not just for runners. They would be great for any activity or sport, or just for wearing around and looking cute. 

I was so happy with my headbands that I wrote to Jennifer, one of the two creative women behind Punkeelove headbands, and offered to do a giveaway here on my blog and she graciously agreed.

SO, one lucky reader of See Mom Run Far will win either two Punkeelove headbands of your choice, or one custom embroidered headband of your choice. The hard part will be trying to choose which headbands you want if you win. :)

Here is a post-run pic in my favorite green poka-dot Punkeelove headband

Headbands never fit me. I have fine hair but an odd shaped skull or something. They either fall right off or are way too tight and I get an immediate headache. So, I love the adjustableness of them on their site. I am totally partial to the cool green toned ones!

TMB @ RACING WITH BABES said...

I love the funky zebra one!

And I just started a new blog...you will be added to the blog roll when my hubbie tells me how tonight :)

You are on my blogroll. I wonder if thesebands could be used to cover your ears? I start off almost all runs (excpt in the heat of the day in summer) with my ears cold so I always wear an earband which I later slide back off my ears or take off and wear around my wrist...

I love all the designs - can't choose just one! I especially like the swirly designs or the ones with LOTS of colors - and a lot of the Prep designs - especially the flip flops :-).

Your adoption blog is on my blogroll. I added your running blog to my blogroll. AND I searched the site and when I got to the custom headbands, I was thinking how fun it would be to have one that said One Thankful Mom for my first half marathon. Wouldn't that would be nifty?

Ok, I wasn't going to enter because I have fairly short hair and don't wear headbands... but tonight I was on the treadmill and my bangs were driving me insane and I thought... hmm... ok I guess I see the appeal of a headband. I like the "orange burst' one!
