Fleurty Bands

December 18, 2014

For a few days now I have had a household of sick toddlers, my boys even had left ear infections and respiratory infections. You can imagine the lack of sleep and the trying to hold everyone as all they wanted was to be held, and held to sleep. Luckily, they seem to be better as of today. Thank you to some of you who knew and for your thoughts and prayers.
With sick babies and the cold front this winter there is little motivation to go anywhere but to the grocery store or to get gas. I have been a homebody for the past week, going out some for appointments and will be headed to Nevaehs gingerbread house party this afternoon with her kindergarten class. When I have gone out though I have donned a comfortable outfit and shoes, hair pulled back and minimal accessories. With the exception of this cute purple chevron head band that is from Jasmine the creator of the etsy shop Fleurty Bands.

I haven’t worn a head band since last spring or early summer and even then I had store bought ones that seemed to slide off often. With Fleurty Bands though they do not slide off, they are made to stay put. The band is held by a hidden elastic, and the shop has so many different designed bands and for different purposes as well, such as for sports/dance, holidays and just for fun. The fleurty band I am wearing today actually came to me via a giveaway that I entered that several people could win all at once and I was one of the lucky along with 4 or 5 other folks. I love how it not only stays put, but looks stylish at the same time, turning a boring up do or down do to something more.

My sister Annalise (who graciously did these photos) is a big fashion guru and sports player and she loved it as well, and didn’t mind styling it with her matching purple sweater, vest combo. She thought it was so cute and this is coming from a fashionista that wears headbands ALL THE FREAKIN TIME, with being into sports and all.
Jasmine of Fleurty Bands is graciously offering 10% off her items to my readers when you use the discount code GARAYTREASURES10 and this discount will be good until 12/31/2014. Many of her bands sell for $7 up, and if you are not into head bands she also sells equally as cute and designed hair ties for $4.50. Below are some of the cutest pieces from her shop that I think you might like and all for $7-perfect for Christmas gifts to others or to yourself.

For a night of shopping I have also worn this lovely band this way:

That’s right with hair down (on a rainy day I might add) and cardigan sweater and leggings. I just love the tiny chevron detail. What about you?

Do you wear head bands? When do you most wear head bands?

*Fleurty Bands provided me with this band via a giveaway and a MAJOR discount code for more items in the store in exchange for this review, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Are you a running or know someone running an etsy shop or small business and want more promotion? I would love to collaborate, you can e-mail me for inquiry or check out my sponsor page here.

    I think these headbands are too cute! I always want to throw on one when I’m running errands, but I always seem to forget. 🙂 Glad to hear the kiddos are feeling a little better today. Hope you have a great weekend, Rachel! -xx

    I definitely rock a headband at the gym when my hair just won’t stay put! I love this bright purple one. 🙂

    I love how they stay put, I also love that they won’t hurt behind the ears….my original problem with headbands. Cute!

    I really like the chevron detail in your purple one and that Rudolph one would be perfect for this time of year! I will definitely be checking these out! What great stocking stuffers! Thanks for sharing dear 🙂

    My daughter wears head bands a lot – for dance, to school, etc. I like them to hold my hair back when I am working out or cleaning the house. These are adorable! I love the reindeer! And your sister is gorgeous! Susan

    Nice work, Rachel. PS: Annalise hasn’t been feeling her best today so if she’s not feeling better by tomorrow (Saturday) your mom and I may end up baby sitting for you!

    See you later! Give the kids a hug and kiss for us!

    What a cute headband! Definitely brings a little glam to a casual outfit 🙂 I hope your family feels better soon!!

  • Carrie @ Curly Crafty Mom December 22, 2014 at 12:31 am

    That is a really cute headband and it even matches your sneakers! I have weeks like that where I wear my hair up every day… because, I just don’t have time to do it! Hope your family continues to feel better, Autumn has been having asthma and has been sick, too. NOT fun.
