my christmas list + BIC Band Giveaway!

Be sure to read #1 for the giveaway! :) 

Most years at Christmas, my mom asks me to send her stuff that I want and I spend time looking online and shopping in the month of November/early December to find a few things I like. I am always at a loss for understanding why there are so many things I would love to have all year long and then I can't think of anything when it comes time to make up a list.

Well not this year. Pinterest and my complete stoppage in shopping have really helped me out. Sending my mom items here and there for Christmas has not been hard at all. And since I know it's helpful to get ideas from others sometimes, I thought I would share with you what I've sent to my mom and dad/fiance/sister/anyone else shopping for me.

1. Three new BICBands. I'm asking for gold, smoke, and purple. If you are looking for a good running/wearing around headband, these are the best! They really don't slip!
And! Exciting news! I had totally written this post and thought about contacting Sandy for a giveaway, and she wrote me back so fast and agreed to offer one!!

Here I am after my half marathon in my silver one:

Here are the details:

Sandy is going to send the lucky winner one sparkle BIC Band of your choice. They're great for all sports, working out, and even wearing around during the day (because of the cute sparkle)!

BIC Bands is an amazing company for a few reasons. First of all, she donates $1 from every headband to a difference charity every month (Last month she donated $850 to Breast Cancer Research). A lot of times she pairs up with runners fundraising for races. Also, the BIC stands for Because I Can. I just love that. And, they're the least expensive of the non-slip headbands out there. They really don't slip!

Here's how to enter (leave a separate comment for each telling me you did that one):
1. Be a GFC follower of my blog and tell me below (Mandatory 1 entry).
2. Go to BICBands and tell me which color sparkly skinnie minnie you would like (Mandatory 1 entry).
3. Follow @BICBands and @lttlegrlbigwrld on twitter (1 entry).
4. Follow BIC Bands on facebook (1 entry).
5. Tweet about the giveaway. You could use this tweet "@lttlegrlbigwrld is giving away a sparkle @BICBands. They're the best non-slip headbands out there. Enter here: http://bit.ly/tkmcGl"
6. Like my brand new facebook page (1 entry).

The giveaway will close November 21st at midnight!

Now back to my Christmas list...
2. Some Butter London Nail Polish. I love that Zappos and Nordstrom carry them online, and I had no idea until Saturday. I would love to have The Black KnightNo More Waity, KatieAll Hail the QueenFrilly Knickers, and Wallis. A combination of any of them would be just lovely!

 3. A new gym bag. The one I want is the Zella gathered tote at Nordstrom, and it's meant to be a gym bag so has lots of pockets and place to store things.

 4. A gold Meghan necklace. BaubleBar has some really cute ones.


 6. These Seychelles wedges that I've been eyeing for over a year. They're called the Eye to Eye.

 7. Some running tights. It always seems to be colder in Florida after Christmas than before.

 8. A scentsy warmer and some scents. This one or another one that I showed her.

I'll add a few more things here or there for the next little bit, but I was sure to tell my mom that I'd let her know when LOFT was having 40% off.

I also told her she HAD to use ebates on every single online purchase she makes. She didn't know what it was, so I filled her in. Do you use ebates? I've gotten $80+ back so far, and I don't even do that much online shopping. You just go to ebates.com and type in the site that you're wanting to shop for and it gives you a certain % cash back. Four times per year it will either mail you a check or deposit the amount into paypal (whichever you ask it to do). I swear it's legit...I just recently got a payment. And you can still use coupon and discount codes on the actual site.


What's on your wish list?
