Bolder Band Headbands-Review and Giveaway

*These headbands were provided to me for review. My opinion is my own*


I love headbands. Especially since I am starting to let my bangs grow out. I have a few cute ones, and they work fairly well. Most of them tend to ride back on your head over time, especially during strenuous activity.

Enter Bolder Bands Headbands…

Created by Amy Crouse, these headbands are awesome! Here is her story.

From the website.

“Hi! I’m Amy Crouse, founder and creator of Bolder Band™. Thank you for checking us out!

I am a Colorado native and a cross fitting/running mom of three amazing kids and wife to an awesome man who is also my  business partner! I really enjoy working out, but could never seem to find the right thing to hold my hair back.  Every name-brand elastic head band would pop off my head in the middle of my workouts. I got fed up with the interruption of fixing my headband every few burpees and decided there had to be a better alternative. 

So, I took matters into my own hands and began to sew my own. I dusted off my sewing machine and made a few bands to give to my running partners and workout buddies who liked them as much as I did! Thus began the creation of Bolder Band™. In one year, we have been able to spread our message all over the US and beyond to encourage women (and men) to be part of our Band of Bold, Beautiful People!

Our bands are made right here in our small Colorado hometown by an incredible team of dedicated professionals committed to producing the highest quality product possible. We have set ourselves apart by making headbands sized according to your head. We believe that’s critical to the efficacy of the band, since not all heads are the same size. We also guarantee that our headbands (when worn correctly) will stay put, so you don’t have to.

We have an amazing team of passionate individuals working behind the scenes. They are committed to getting the orders out quickly and accurately, as well as giving exceptional customer service. 

We hope you will join us on our quest to empower all people to be active and to be the most bold, beautiful version of themselves!!”


Bolder Bands™ are for Runners. They’re also for Rock Climbers, Skiers, and Basketball players. They’re for Power Lifters, Power walkers, and people who love Power Yoga. Bolder Bands are for horseback riding, stroller driving, and morning mochas with friends. They’re also used widely by smilers, strivers, and toddler high-fivers. They’re made to stay put, they’re made to wick moisture, and they’re made to look great, but most of all, Bolder Band™ headbands were made for the Bold, Beautiful, You!”


One of the things I like most about these, is that they actually come in SIZES! X-small through large, they are sure to have one to fit everyone! They also have TONS of colors and patterns. I recieved two colors, a tie-dye and a aztec pattern.IMG_1519I had my daughter test the size small, since she loves to work out, and has super long hair that hangs in her face. How cute is she?IMG_1565She wore it to the gym, and did the eliptical and the treadmill. She told me worked VERY well, and she had very little trouble with it slipping.

I didn’t test it myself, because my head was too big for the small, so I would definitely need a medium! But I love the material, love the stretch, yet the snug way it fits on your head. My daughter loves it too!

Now for the giveaway!!!

Check Out a Couple of The New Urban Decay Moondust Shadows!

*These were purchased by me, for my own use. My opinion is my own.*

I absolutely LOVE these shadows! I owe a few of them, and my favorite is the green shade, called Zodiac. I like to wear it alone, on my lower lid, blended out into the crease, with a nice black eyeliner. I find it shows up nicely under my glasses.

Anyhoo, I got two new shade a couple of weeks ago, and they are as equally to die for! I got two new shades. Solstice and Ether.

IMG_1495They are SO GORGEOUS!


IMG_1498I would describe Solstice as a red/brown, with major sparkle and shift. It reminds me of an amped up version of an older shade of theirs, Lounge. Urban Decay calls it a “metallic pink-red with green 3-d sparkle and shift.”



IMG_1499Ether is equally sparkley and gorgeous. Urban Decay calls it a “sparkly purple with pink-blue 3-d sparkle and shift.”IMG_1500The swatches don’t do it justice. It is so rich, and sparkly. I LOVE them!

Beauty Blogazons Weekly Roundup!


Monthly Sub Monday-Rocksbox

I love Rocksbox. I’m just gonna say it. Every box I have gotten from them has been awesome.

If you aren’t familiar with them, it’s a monthly sub box, where you get 3 pieces of jewelry to keep for as long as you like, for $19 a month. You can return and swap out as many times as you wish, and even purchase any of the items for 20% off of retail. I have actually purchased a couple of things myself!

This months box was seriously AWESOME. I mean AWESOME! Probably my favorite one yet. Let’s check it out!

The packaging has changed a bit. The logo is more modern. I love it!IMG_1559They send me three pieces this month….plus a little treat. I will get to that later. First, the necklace.1839494-p-MULTIVIEW

Brittany Necklace Le Revolution In Turquoise
IMG_1554 (1)This necklace is awesome! It is super long. Goldtone chain with turquoise and gold beads. I wore it full length, and doubled, like on the mannequin. I wore it with casual white tshirts and with little black dresses. It is so versatile! It’s bold, and gorgeous and I am so sad to send it back!
Now for the earrings.ASL-E1-1

One Stone Hoop Earring in Moonstone
IMG_1553These earrings are serious business. They’re long, and substantial, yet lightweight. I love the faceted moonstone in the center of the metal teardrop dangle. The metal has a lightly hammered look, to give them an organic feel. Again, I am sad to send these back!
Before I show you the last piece in the box, I wanted to tell you about another service Rocksbox offers for its members. If you follow them on Pinterest, you can comment “wishlist” on their pieces, and they will put it in your box. That is how I got this next piece, that I am in love with, and wish I could afford to keep.

Ophelia Cocktail Ring in ChrysopraseIMG_1558
This ring is amazing. I fell in love with it in pictures, and it is even more wonderful in person. The chrysopase is set in gold, and surrounded in rhinestones or maybe cubic zirconia. They sparkle like crazy. I LOVE the contrast of the earthy, flawed chrysopace against the sparkle of the stones. It makes quite a statement as a middle or index finger ring. I got SO many compliments on this. I am going to try to get this one again down the road, I love it SO much!
This month I was delighted to get a little surprise to keep in my box.
IMG_1561How cute is this little necklace? I actually wore it together with the turquoise necklace a few times, for a layered look. So simple. So cute! Love it!
