Giveaway: ChicBuds earphones

Why settle for plain-looking earbuds when you have a stylish pair by ChicBuds that has a built-in retrator? Good looks meets functionality. The retractor allows the cord length to expand to five stopping points while the clip prevents the cord from bouncing around. Now, if my window blinds would be so kind.

As most of you know I have been training for my first 5K. Which is tomorrow morning. I used to start my run off by trying very hard to untangle my husband earbuds for the first 5 minutes of my run and then find a way to stop the cord from hitting me while I blazed through the sideroads of our neighborhood not unlike a graceful gazelle in the cool morning sun. Quite a sight to see, I know. These earbuds truly retract to the length I need them and the cord does NOT bounce. Very nice. And, ChicBuds are very pretty with Swarovski crystals on them.

Chic Buds offers many earbud designs. Another nice thing is their support of many causes including breast cancer awareness, AIDS research and ChicBlvd Fitness partners with the American Heart Association.

ChicBuds earphones are compatible with the iPod, iPhone, MP3 player, CD player, airplane connectors…basically any listening device.



ChicBuds retailers and partners include Mary Kay Cosmetics, Fred Segal, Intuition, Ceasar’s Palace, Wynn Hotels, Fairmont Hotels, Marriott Hotels, Dillards, Fred Meyer, Regis, Nordstrom, Radioshack.com, BestBuy.com, Buy.com, KMart.com and hundreds of boutiques nationwide. ChicBuds are also distributed in Japan and Australia and are sold in over 10 countries.


Buy a pair: Pick up a pair of ChicBuds for yourself or as a gift starting at $29.99. Be sure to check out all of ChicBuds other products.

Win a pair: ChicBuds is giving away a pair of ROCKBUDS to one Blondes, Poop & Mascara reader. Just leave a comment telling me your favorite earbuds with your email address. Let me know your favorite track to workout to as well if you would. I need to update my workout playlist!

I like the "Angel" Rockbuds.

I usually listen to a good teacher on podcast while I run. Not a lot of music.

But, my favorite is running with friends :) Wanna run, friend?

I really like the white ones with the blueberry crystals (or maybe I'm just hungry and blueberries sound really good!!).

My favorite workout songs are all old, so I doubt they'll help you, but I love Gloria, Hit Me With Your Best Shot, and an Anne Murray Song that nobody knows called "Gotcha". They all have exactly the right beat for me.

My favorite RockBuds are the Camo ones. My e-mail address is acumberworth15@hotmail.com.

For running/working out, I like anything by Black Eyed Peas (most recently their "Boom Boom Pow" song). Or, you really can't go wrong with club/house/dance music like "Dragostea Din Tei" by O-Zone (AKA the "Numa Numa" song), "Call On Me" by Eric Prydz, or mostly anything by Benny Benassi.

My favorite thing about your blog is the photo content...photos can say so much without any words at all!

Thanks for the opportunity to enter the contest. Keep up the good work!

Angie @ Just LikeThe Number said...

I love the Rock Star ChicBuds. I ran the mini last May and I cursed my cheap ear buds during each and every training run. And yet I still use the same ones. One of my favorite songs to run to is "Bittersweet Symphony" by The Verve. Oddly enough, I also like hip or R&B, like Justin Timberlake or Outkast. I can barely listen to the stuff on the radio, but it seems to get me movin' on my runs.

I love the Electric Plaid Rockbuds -- so cool! Thanks for the chance to win a pair!

One of my favorite workout tracks lately has been the version of Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" done by the cast of the new show, "Glee" -- kind of cheesy, I know, but it's a high-energy, feel-good track that helps me through my workout.

The Rock Star ear buds are adorable!

Some great work out songs:

Bottle Rocket - The Go! Team

Don't Go Out Tonight - Alphabeat
The Magic Position - Patrick Wolf
Modern Swinger - The Pink Spiders
Touchdown Turnaround - Hellogoodbye
Bohemian Like You - The Dandy Warhols
Pull Shapes - The Pipettes
Young Americans - David Bowie

Also, if you have an iPod that supports video, watching your favorite TV show or listening to a great podcast while working out is a great way to keep yourself distracted. Nothing better than running on the treadmill for an hour and not even noticing because I was so absorbed in an episode of This American Life. :P
