Bondi Band and Sweaty Bands!

What to do with your hair while exercising??  Use a Bondi Band or Sweaty Band of course ;-).  I was lucky enough to be sent complimentary samples of both of these products to review on my blog.  First, I'll review the Bondi Band for you!

Some info. from Bondi Band's website:

Their goal is to "offer comfy, colorful, and creative headbands to fit every lifestyle and personality."  They have bands for men, women, kids, AND dogs!

"By using stretchy and breathable material, we allow Bondi Bands to fit virtually every head size comfortably and fashionably."

They even donate 10% of their pretax profits to charity!   For 2009 they chose the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Here are pics of the 2 Bondi Bands I was sent:

10 of 10.  These were super comfortable AND stylish!  Though I think I'd say "I eat so I can run"... but that just doesn't sound right, does it?!  These bands also stayed in place and kept my hair out of my eyes quite well.  They work especially great for biking.

Now for some info. about Sweaty Bands from their website:

These bands are "uniquely designed for women and girls who want to show their style, even when they sweat a while!"  They come in MANY colors and designs, as you can see here!

Here is the band I was sent:

10 of 10 too!  I loved the stylish design and was also impressed by how well the band stayed in place.  I have trouble making thin bands like this stay put on my head, but the Sweaty Band's design worked like a charm.  It also kept the sweat out of my eyes while I was running!

Now, how about some food! 

I finished the my last 2 Dr. Kracker boxes that I had been sent to sample :-(.  I'll have to keep an eye out for them when I'm out shopping (unfortunately the stores in my town don't carry them).  Here are my final reviews:

Klassic 3 Seed Flatbreads

9 of 10.  VERY seedy (as you can see!), thick, and hearty - hmmm.... I'm noticing a pattern ;-).  They were satisfying alone, but tasted best when topped with PB and jelly or hummus.  The flatbread is so big, it's just begging to be topped!

Pumpkin Seed Cheddar Flatbreads

9.5 of 10.  Pumpkin seeds and cheddar - who knew?!  It's a great combination, and I wouldn't recommend PB and jelly on this one ;-).  Hummus does work though... or cheese... or just plain!

And I'll end with some fresh lettuce from a neighbor's garden.  It is delish!

P.S. While I've never tried Holey Donuts myself, I have heard many good things about their tasty low fat and low calorie donuts.  Their "patented cooking process avoids deep frying, creating a light, fluffy donut with as little as 3-4 grams of fat and 150-250 calories."  They are "hand-made, flash frozen and delivered via express mail to arrive at your door, picture perfect and delicious!" (source)

If you'd like to try them for yourself, I suggest taking advantage of the upcoming sale they'll be having:

"Save a whopping 53% July 1st and 2nd only! How - Go to and select any 3 or more assortments in your cart (strict LIMIT of 4 assortments per order), enter the code BS53 in the coupon code box at checkout, click recalculate, and watch 53% come off your total!"



  1. I am not a big fan of flatbreads...unless I toast them with cheese on top (anything with melted cheese makes me happy!)

  2. I like your suggestion of "I eat so I can run" in place of the current wording on the headband. It sends a much better message- afterall, as the saying goes... one should 'eat to live; not live to eat'! Maybe Bondi Band will take your excellent suggestion to heart!
    The Doctor Kracker flat breads look awesome!!! Need to try some soon!!

  3. Ah so jealous you got a Bondi band!!! I've heard great things!!

  4. Greetings! Very useful advice within this
    article! It's the little changes that make the most significant changes. Thanks a lot for sharing!
