Top 10 Playlist - July Edition

July Top 10

July Top 10 by preppy-lizzy on Polyvore

This month's playlist is a little all over the place but all songs I have been rocking to in the car. A little country, a little rock and roll, a little R&B. Do you ever just have a mix of songs that you find yourself rocking out to even though they don't have any business together in a playlist?

What Makes You Beautiful + A Giveaway

This post is sponsored through Brandbacker. Headbands & Bagels did not receive any compensation for this post, only the ability to share the giveaway with readers. Thank you for supporting the brands that make Headbands & Bagels possible.
Up All Night
I can't lie, I am a One Direction fan. I feel more vindicaed in my liking of the band since Sir Paul McCartney has come out in support of the group and their talents. The music is fun to sing and dance along with and they bandmates are so endearing. They have won their fans over with their catchy music and now they are now partnering to release limited edition makeup kits inspired by their songs.
Take Me Home
There are three different makeup tins in the collection, each name after one of the band's songs. Released by the same company that produces Physican's Formula and Wet n Wild brands, the collections are to be priced affordably and include an eyeshadow pallet, lipstick, lipgloss, nail polish, blush, mascara and eye pencil.

The collections will be available in the US starting at Macy's on August 11th with a wider US release on August 25th. International availability date is still not known.
Midnight Memories
The Midnight Memories kit is focused on bright reds and slate grays. The Take Me Home kit is focused around nudes and gold tones. The Up All Night kit features blues and pinks. While I think each has great colors I could use, I think I am most drawn to the Midnight Memories kit to create dramatic looks for nights out with the hubby or the girls.

I am excited to share that Headbands & Bagels readers have a chance to win one of 50 kits before they go on sale to the general public. Winners will be given the opportunity to pick a kit of their choice. The contest is open only to US & Canada. Winners will be picked at random and notified on August 5th. See official rules for all restrictions.

Your New Beach Buddy + A Giveaway

This post is sponsored by SandCloud. While SandCloud provided a product for review, all thoughts and opinions of the product are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that make Headbands & Bagels possible.

Today I am really excited to bring you new product line out of San Diego called Sand Cloud. Sand Cloud is a lightweight Turkish cotton towel with a removable pillow insert. Perfect for the beach, park, pool, back patio, or outdoor movie, Sand Cloud's towels are easy to clean, lightweight and really comfortable.

I used to be the person that would wrap a pillow into a pillowcase for the beach, but now I just need to grab my Sand Cloud. While it may be a little too lightweight for hot sand, I find that I layer a sheet under it like I did already with my towels, it is a great piece to have with you just in case. I love to keep mine in my car so I can grab it for any purpose.

A typical beach set up: Towel c/o Sand Cloud, J.Crew Bathing Suit, Tanning Oil, Water Cooler Bottle
Sand Cloud was started by three friends looking to add comfort and convince to their days at the beach. They were recently featured on the national radio program, Big Biz, as well as on the local news station in San Diego. On Monday, they officially launched their first Kickstarter campaign to raise capital for their business and as of Thursday morning had already raised $2000.

I am so excited to rock out at the beach with my new Sand Cloud towel this weekend and I am even more excited that Sand Cloud is offering my readers the chance to win one too! In conjunction with Sand Cloud, Headbands & Bagels readers have the chance to win this green striped Sand Cloud towel. Just enter with the Rafflecopter giveaway below. Each task you complete gets you another entry! Another way to enter is on the Headbands & Bagels Facebook page. The giveaway is open until next Sunday. Good luck.
Ready for the beach. Sand Cloud Towels c/o; Forever 21 beach bag; Water Cooler Bottle
