Oh boy, do I have something fashionably fun to share with you today!
But we’ll get to the details in just a minute. *Tease*
We’re officially back in game season, folks. If you are a regular around here, then you’ve already heard all about the events and madness going on in our lives right now. It’s crazy. Once summer ends and October rolls around, we’re released into a world of long nights, no-such-thing as weekends Saturdays and Sundays, and outings to attend almost daily.
I often joke that this type of lifestyle is not for the weak. Dancing is a “part-time job”, yes, but I have always said it is a full-time commitment. My days, nights, and weekends now revolve around a basketball court and representing it in our community at all times (hence my now unpredictable posting time every day). Welcome to it!
I spent the majority of today catching up on some work and going through emails. I have just enough time to fit in an afternoon run around the neighborhood before getting ready for tonight’s game BUT after how sore I felt during the last game, I’m going to rain check it until tomorrow. I’m sure my legs will thanks me.
Instead, let’s quickly recap today’s eats! Breakfast was something most of you have seen here before… a bowl of Nature’s Path Pumpkin Raisin Crunch. Alone or topped with fresh fruit, it’s just too good not to eat and bring up again. So I did.
I enjoyed another bowl of fresh berries (same mid-morning snack as yesterday) and wasn’t kidding when I mentioned I could keep refilling this and eating it all day long thing, either.
Give me all the berries.
I am finishing up lunch as I type with a turkey and vegetable wrap made out of Tuesday’s monster salad leftovers.
When putting those together I always make sure to have extras to put on the side or in something for the next few meals. The whole wheat Smart & Delicious Low-Carb tortilla is fiber packed and makes any wrap just a little more filling. I wrapped it tight, dipped it into a side of Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, and enjoyed every single bite!
Violet Love Headband Giveaway
I was contacted a few weeks ago by a custom printed headband and clothing company. After scrolling through the blog, they caught on to the fact that I am fan of big headbands, as I wear them often on runs and in group fitness classes.
Violet Love was started by Rebecca Michaels, a former engineer, when she couldn’t find a headband to fit what she was looking for. She created Violet Love headbands, which are all LA-made, PETA-Vegan approved and eco friendly. They are no slip, no headache headbands which makes them perfect for running, yoga or anything in between!
They come in an array of prints and styles, tailored to fit your personal style. Go bold and bright or keep it simple and solid with the same absorbancy and strong hold in each band.
Although I haven’t tried these running yet, I have a feeling they will be perfect for my secret earbud trick.
So far, I have been loving the patterned prints that spice up my every day yoga/lounge/dance wear.
I don’t know about you… but when I put on adorable yoga gear, I instantly want to put it to use and practice.
(Don’t mind the awkwardness of trying to hold the camera and the pose.)
I will be sure to report how these headbands hold up during workouts, but for now can share how soft, stretchy, and fun they are to wear anywhere. They are loose enough to prevent headaches, but just tight enough to comfortably stay in place.
While I really don’t want to part with any I was so generously sent, I have some good news for those interested. One lucky Housewife Glamour reader will win two Violet Love headbands in Pigeon and Wild Thing!
(Retail Value: $34)

I would wear it everywhere! To the gym, shopping, lounging… 🙂
I would wear it out in public! Way too cute to sweat in:).
Umm.. is EVERYWHERE an acceptable answer?! Because these things are AHHHmazing!
Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl
My favorite is the Abrams Falls…gotta love animal print!! I would definitely wear this to the gym or just anywhere on the days when I don’t feel like doing my hair!
I love colette headband! I would wear them everywhere! 🙂
I would wear it during my boxing class! My plastic headbands always fall off.
I love the wild thing!
Oh totally WILD THING!
Definitely to yoga!
Those headbands are super cute! I would definitely use them during a workout (just the other day I was on the treadmill and couldn’t stand the tickle of sweat dripping down my head). Even just for the weekend on a high-bun kinda hair day!
I can’t pick a favorite. I would love to try out the whole “wear a headband to keep the earbuds in while running.”
Love your blog. This is my first comment (so I get extra points, right – lol)
I would wear it running! I need something that’ll stay on and keep my fly aways under control.
I love the Half moon print!
I’d wear it at the gym or playing at the park with my kids, running errands, anywhere!
I would wear it working out; running, jazzercise, dancing, and yoga are my favorites and it is so hard to find a headband that fits for all those! 🙂
I really love the cobra print.. how fun!
They are super cute 🙂 I would probably wear it the most running!
I LOVE all the Violet Love headbands, but my favorite would have to be the “Wild Thing” in the fall collection. The colors are fun and go with anything!
I’d wear these to spin class, definitely! My head is weird-shaped and no other headband that goes completely around my head stay in place; the ones that go halfway around tend to hurt after a while. I feel like these would be perfect for me to “get my spin on” without the hurt, all while keeping my fly-aways out of my face!
I would love these for yoga or just wearing casually during the day on weekends!
Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine
I love the Pigeon headband as well! So cute!
I love the Peacock headband although all the prints are adorbs!
I think these would be perfect for barre and yoga classes!
These are so adorable1! I have really thick hair, so I love a good thick headband. I would wear them running or in yoga class.
I love the wild thing. These look great for going to the gym, and then running errands after, and not looking like a complete mess.
Em @ Love A Latte

Wild Thing would be perfect for my training and completing the OUC half marathon and Disney Princess half marathon 🙂
Sugar Plum would be so cute to wear any day out and about.
How can you choose just one?! I would say Salute or Citrine.
I would use them at Jazzercise!
I love the Bleeker Street headband.
I love the Alexandre Headband! I would wear that with pretty much everything, but espcially running or spin class.

Cute headbands! Love the patterns! I would probably wear them on a run or just to the gym.
I love the Half Moon print! These would be great to wear to the gym.
I would wear this for zumba
so hard to choose a favorite – I like the wild thing or the half moon
I would wear them running!
I like the Ballerina headband in fuchsia pink
I’d wear them to every dance rehearsal – my layers (read: ex-bangs) have this annoying habit of getting in the way of everything with every turn or hair flip!
I would wear my headbands while I go on runs! I absolutely love Violet Love!
These are adorable! I would wear them all over. Definitely be a staple to campus and around town! I love headbands.
