Spandits Review and Giveaway

You guys know that I LOVE headbands, because I’m a sweaty beast, and I don’t want sweat interfering with my beast mode. I also have “Einstein” hair that likes to fly away in inconvenient wisps, getting in my eyes, so lately, headbands have become a MUST for this chick. I was doin’ my thang as I always do when I noticed one day that a company called Spandits followed me on Twitter. I checked out their website and instantly fell in love; I mean, who wouldn’t want to rock these awesome neon leopard shorts? Looking through their site I got a little bit of “skinny envy”, as I call it, when I see something that I as a big girl “shouldn’t” wear, but then, the sweaty chick inside of me rejoiced when I saw that they sell headbands, too!

I contacted them, asked for a sample to review, and the rest is brand-lovin’ history. Spandits headbands are unique because they’re 100% made in the USA, and it came packaged with an explanation of the brand. I requested a “midnight blossom” headband and it’s soooo cute – nice, bright flowers and paisley against a black background, perfect coordinating colors for any fitness fashionista. When I put on the headband, I loved immediately how the inside folds weren’t sewed shut, because it was up to me to determine how thick or thin I wanted to make the headband. For exercising with Richard Simmons at his Beverly Hills fitness studio “Slimmons“, I wore it across my forehead to keep sweat out of my eyes, and then for our photo opp, I pushed it back onto my braids and it made a cute headband. ADORABLE!

I used it once again on a hot and sweaty hike in the Malibu Mountains, and was delighted how functional and fun my special Spandits headband was. The best part about Spandits besides their awesome quality and designs is the price. Spandits headbands are only $8 – a great deal compared to some of the bands floating around out there that are (gasp) $18 each. While I don’t doubt some of those are worth the money, $18 is just a little too much for a sweat-soaking piece of fabric. However, I can get behind $8 because it’s made in the USA by two fitness-loving moms, they’re super cute, and it’s supporting a small business.
