The Perfect Headband

Hello friends! How have you all been? I'm sure you have all been wondering where I have been the last week or so as I have been in and out of the blogging world. I haven't even had a chance to read some of my favorite blogs because I've been that busy. Here's a little inside on what I've been up to.

I ran my first half marathon! My time wasn't what I was hoping for but now I have a new target time for the next race. And yes I want to sign up for another half marathon for this fall! I'm already addicted after running one. (A full recap will be up on the blog of the race once I get the pictures!)

I moved out of the dorms and into a house! I love not being in the dorm, being able to leave campus whenever I need to, and having my car parked right outside instead of at the parking garage. I don't care for cooking too much though. I like eating healthy meals that I make but I don't like thinking of different meals every day. I'm not very creative when it comes to cooking so that's where Pinterest comes in :)

I have been sewing! I could never find the perfect headband for running and working out so I thought I should just make my own. I tried some other bands that were non-slip but found them to be too tight and they gave me a headache so after looking around and getting a few ideas I came up with the perfect non-slip and ouch-free headband. I wore one of these headbands all day long and did not have to adjust it once and completely forgot I was even wearing it because I didn't have a headband-headache after 15 minutes of wear!

Solid colors: Grey, Navy, Purple, Baby Blue, Orange, Hot Pink, Lilac



I also didn't like how some headbands were lined with white ribbon. After one use I found them to look dirty from make-up and sweat, which grossed me out! These are all lined with ribbon that will not show dirt and the elastic in the back is less noticeable than other bands.

Chevon Colors: Apple Green, Sunshine Yellow, Sky Blue, Bubblegum Pink, Red



I have been having a blast searching craft stores for the perfect ribbons for these headbands! I love all of the different colors and patterns.

Pattern Colors: Brown Scroll, Night Owl, Neon Stripe, Blue Zebra, Red Polka Dot



The headbands are 7/8" wide and have a 21" circumference. If you need the headband to be bigger or smaller (remember the elastic allows it to stretch a few inches) I am able to make it to meet your needs. I am also able to make them for children with a circumference of 18".

Please let me know if you are interested in ordering a headband! All headbands are $8 with free shipping and payments will be sent through Paypal to make things easy. Just e-mail me at trufflesntreadmills [at] aol [dot] com and let me know which band you want to buy!

    1. The internet here isn't the best. I think when I go on campus they should all load

  6. Okay, I'm emailing you now!! I am in serious need of a cute headband that I can wear running and if I want to wear my hair up in a bun :) PLUS, I just measured my head and it is exactly 21 inches - it is meant to be!

  7. I totally wish these kinds of headbands stayed on my head. I think I have a weird shaped skull! They always slip right off and it's so annoying to have to keep fixing. Do you think these would stay better than any other kind you buy at a store?

    1. Yes Aimee! I wore one for 10 hours the other day and did not have to adjust it once! I normally have to adjust the other kinds several times and they slip a lot but these don't at all. There is a special ribbon backing that keeps them from slipping in your hair. You can e-mail me if you decide to order one to try them out!

    2. Aimee, I got a headband from Danielle and it is perfect! I always say my head is shaped funny and nothing stays on, so when she said hers would I didn't believe her. I've ran in it and it has never even slipped from the spot I keep it in. Definitely worth trying out. I think you'll be surprised!
