Happy Birthday to Me = A Sparkly Gift Giveaway For You! {Sparkly Soul Headband Review & Giveaway}

First off, let me just say, I cannot believe I am turning 38 today! Wow, how time flies! What is even more exciting? It’s my first birthday in way too many years that I am not embarrassed by my fat-self and will not be avoiding the camera! THAT is something to celebrate for sure! And today is going to get even more exciting for you!

Now, do you know my love for shiny things? Perhaps I have not expressed this enough in the virtual world. I walk through stores, and anything shiny, glittery, sparkly, sequined, reflective,¬†metallic, or otherwise something that you can see the glint in my eye, I stop for. I think I have a Hello Kitty, Britney Spears, show choir/cheerleader-y kinda soul, if you will. For the longest time I thought I was just trying to relive my youth, but then again, diamonds are sparkly, and those aren’t just for kids! ūüėČ Enter Sparkly Soul.

My Sparkly Soul Headbands in Charcoal (3/8 inch) and Silver (5/8 inch)If you have unruly hair like I do, having a secure headband to keep it in place during activity is key. Having a sparkly one is even better! Sparkly Soul¬†was kind enough to provide me with two headbands to review. One of the “thin” headbands (3/8 inch) in the color “Charcoal” and one of the “thick” headbands (5/8 inch) in the color “Silver.” I got those colors because they could go with everything! I absolutely love them! They definitely stay in place, and they¬†sparkle all the away around too! Not like some of the other ones that just have a strand of elastic band on the bottom of them. They totally rock.

They come in many fun sparkly colors: Apple Green, Black, Charcoal, Chocolate Brown, Dark Pink, Kaleidoscope Pink, Maroon, Mint Green, Rose Pink, Sky Blue, Teal, White, Ice Pink, Lavender Purple, Violet Purple, Red, Silver, Blue, Gold, Green, and Orange. And they have striped ones in Blue/Orange, Blue/White, Green/White, Rainbow, Red/Green, Red/White/Blue, and Pink/Red Rainbow. They also have satin non-sparkly 5/8-inch ones (for when you are in a less glittery mood!) in Black, Pink, and Purple. Oh and a “Team in Training” one too!

So how do I rock out my Sparkly Soul headbands? You might see me working out, running, or doing planks in my Sparkly Soul.

    My twin girls have lots and lots of curly hair so we are always on the look out for hair accessories. They both love headbands and anything sparkly is a big hit with 10 year olds so this would be a hit at our house.
