Bonding with Bondi

Check out what I got in the mail yesterday!

Bondi Band!

I was the lucky winner of a Bondi Band through a giveaway on Shelby’s blog and couldn’t wait to slip this bad boy on.

I wore it throughout the night last night, feeling a lot like Brett Michaels.

Totally Agree Brett, Every Rose Has Its Thorn...

Apparently I need to work on my hard-core rocker face. πŸ˜‰

Two things crossed my mind as I wore my new Bondi Band to the gym this morning:

  1. Wow, that’s a lot of face
  2. I wish I had one of these when I was training for the Chicago Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon

This headband is no joke! I wore it to the gym this morning and it kept all of the hair out of my face without slipping off or feeling too tight and uncomfortable.

It made it through 30 minutes on the elliptical and a power yoga class with ease. Thank you, Shelby!


Breakfast was a tribute to my love of cold oatmeal!


I made a yogurt bowl using a cup of Greek yogurt, 1/2 cup of cold oatmeal, a sliced peach and several dashes of pumpkin pie spice.

Oats + Yog + Peaches + Pumpkin Pie Spice

Fruity Oatty Yogurt Bowl

The combination was super tasty thanks to the cold oats.Β  They added a touch of whole grain goodness to the bowl.

Cold Oatmeal is GOOD


Aaand it’s back to the grind. Work, work, work. πŸ˜€

  1. Congrats on the Bondi Band win! I’ve been wanting to get one of these for a while now. Can’t wait to hear how you like it for running. πŸ™‚

  2. If I had longer hair, I’d definitely want a bondi band.

  3. That bondi band would be perfect for running. I’m always looking for better ways to keep hair out of my face!

  4. That looks so good!! I’m going to have to look into getting a bondi band.. running with a lot of hair is NOT fun!

  5. I need one of those bands! I feel like I have such an odd shaped head because regular head bands always pop off when I exercise…

    you’re rockin’ that headband though! Bret Michaels has nothing on you πŸ™‚

  6. That band is so cute! And you look way cooler than Bret. πŸ˜‰

  7. I have been eating peaches like its my job. Going to add some pumpkin spice on there too now.

  8. I bought some pumpkin spice after hearing you talk about it all the time and LOVE it! Thanks for sharing! I even starting adding it to my coffee, and it is sooo good. yum!

  9. You look so cute in it! It suits you well.

  10. I’ve heard such great things about bondi bands. Glad you like yours!

  11. i want one! it looks really really adorable on you πŸ™‚

  12. I’ve never seen that bondi band, but I could benefit since headbands of all sorts always slip right off my head (perhaps I have an odd shaped head???)

  13. Ahhh I want a Bondi Band. I’m running a late fall marathon so this seems like must have πŸ™‚

    Have a great day love!!!! XOXOX

  14. Man that headband sounds like the perfect thing to take to hot yoga! With my short hair I hate it going all over the place, bugs me so much!

  15. I love the Bondi Band! Works well AND you look like a badass.

  16. Cold oatmeal is delicoius. I had some too this morning and it really is the PERFECT way to start the morning πŸ˜€

  17. I want to try one of them, but I’m afraid I would look bald, haha.

  18. Love your Bondi Band! You look so cute! Your breakfast looks amazing too! Cold oats are the best.

  19. I love using Bondi bands. I have a lot of little fly-away hairs near my face which can get really annoying when I workout. Bondi bands are awesome.

  20. LOVE the Bondi! You definitely rock it! πŸ™‚

  21. I’ve been thinking about getting one of these, thanks for the review!

  22. i saw those bondi bands at a race before and wondered about them. thanks for your views on them! so cute πŸ™‚

  23. OoOo! I want to give a bondi band a try! How neat!

  24. that looks aewsome! i love working out with headbands!

  25. I’ve been in need of a new headband for the job, that one is super cute. I may have to look into getting one for myself.

  26. congrats on the win! maybe i should get one of those…i can’t seem to find a headband for the gym that won’t slip off or give me headaches!

  27. I have never tried a band like that before! I have tried regular headbands, but they always slide off the back of my head. I pull my hair into a ponytail, but I’d love something like that to keep the rest of the small hairs off of my face as well.

  28. I just love how “unedited” the pictures of yourself always are! I am always so critical of myself in photos, you inspire me to possibly share more self-portraits with the world.

  29. Your breakfast looks so good!

  30. Julie,

    I am so glad you are enjoying the Bondi and rockin’ it the way you are! It looks fantastic on you!

    P.S. Bret Michaels rocks!


  31. Hi! I’m getting ready to order some Bondi Bands (i’ve wanted one for some time), but I have a question for someone who has worn one: Can I still pull my hair back in a ponytail while wearing the band? No, I’m not a fan of the ponytail hats, ha! Thanks!
