Skinny Runner HERE convinced me to buy a few BIC (Because I Can) Bands HERE because she posts about them frequently. So I ordered a skinnie minnie in sparkly purple and sparkly orange, and a thin or skinnie (I can't remember which) in sparkly silver. My original plan was to give the orange and silver ones to girlfriends as Christmas gifts....BUT I might just keep them for myself! (I guess I could order another round....hehe)
So today is Bedlam, which is Oklahoma State University *OSU* (my "alma mater") vs. University of Oklahoma *OU*
OSUs colors are orange and black....so to be in the spirit of football i wore my orange scrub pants with a black undershit and white t-shirt to work last night. I also decided to try out my orange sparkly BIC band.... I have pretty short hair (as in chin length when it's "long") and I have serious issues, especially at work, keeping my hair out of my face. So last night I teased the top of my hair, pulled it back in a pony tail (or little nub really) and slid the BIC band on. I did not have to adjust or take it off and put it back on a SINGLE time! This is really impressive to me because these types of headbands NEVER stay on my head! It didn't give me a headache, and it is SUPER cute!
HOLY bags under my eyes!
Another bonus of BIC bands is some of the profit from the bands goes to charity!! They choose a different charity every month, and if you "Like" them on facebook they keep you updated on how much money and who they donated it to! They also post promotion codes! I can't wait to wear my purple one in my Half on Sunday!!...guess I need to go shopping to coordinate my running clothes with my headbands!!
