Fashion Friday: BAMR Bands Giveaway!

HAPPY FASHION FRIDAY! I’m SO SO SO excited about today’s giveaway but first, I have to give myself a high-five for continuing to do a good job with my gastro-goals! So far I have not missed a day of taking probiotics and I only missed one day of drinking my ACV. That’s pretty good! I honestly sometimes consider skipping the ACV in the morning (best time for me to drink it) but then I remember my blog post and it really does keep me accountable! After all, I don’t want to drink it after work when I’d much rather be drinking my wine – and it’d clash terribly with the taste of dinner and my nighttime snack. So go me for keeping up with my goals!

Now for Fashion Friday – with a fit twist. I love the Sweaty Bands headband I got from Heather after the Fitness Magazine Meet & Tweet (she got two in her swag bag and I didn’t get any, so she was kind enough to give me one). But I also am a self-proclaimed cheapo. They don’t call me Coupon Caitlin for nothin’. While I do love my Sweaty Bands headband, I got it for free and would feel a little pain paying the $15 + shipping (unless there’s a free shipping deal going on) for another one. So I’m psyched to spread the word about BAMR Bands, the $10 7/8 inch non-slip headbands hand-made by fellow Fitfluential Ambassador (and blend!) Katie Heddleston. Oh yeah, and did I mention shipping is free?!

Yes, BAMR stands for Bad-Ass Mother Runner, because that’s what Katie is (in fact, her little man is 11 months old today!). But I am not a mother, nor am I a runner. Nor am I a badass in fact.

No, this isn’t a badass.

But I must be something special because Katie approached me and asked if she could send me a BAMR band in the color of my choice for me to review and do a giveaway. YES PLEASE! I picked out blue tiger (which she informed me was blue zebra, oops!) and it arrived promptly with a sweet note. You know I love handwritten notes.

Those who purchase a BAMR band can also get excited about the fact that at least $1 from each headband’s proceeds goes to Every Mother Counts, a campaign devoted to ending preventable deaths around the world caused by pregnancy and childbirth.

Had to match.

I decided to put my BAMR band to the test during one of my longer Saturday morning workouts! I did 20 minutes of speed intervals on the StepMill, followed by a Group Power class. The headband did not need adjusting ONCE! I proceeded to wear it for the remainder of the afternoon when I went to Daybreak to study and hang out with some blends. I was wearing it for a total of 8 hours that Saturday and it never gave me a headache and I never felt it slide. These things are JUST as legit as Sweaty Bands – if not more, because they are CHEAPER!

The beautiful fellow Gbury girl Rachel and I on our blend date!

I love that I was able to go to Daybreak right after the gym and not worry at all about my hair. I usually throw it up in a bun but to be able to spice up the hoodie/yoga pant ensemble with an adorable printed headband was pretty sweet!

CHEVRON!!! Source
