"Bling" in the New Year: ChicBuds Review and Giveaway


We all have our New Years resolutions to think up. Many of us ladies will say, "Gee. I'd really like to hit the gym and tone this or tame that".

Whether you choose an exercise program or an "eat as much as I want" program, you may like a shiny new incentive to help you accomplish your goals.

Let me tell you about chicBuds. ChicBuds are neat little ear buds that sport a retractable cord, a "stay put" clip, and adorable bling to make sure you stand out in the crowd. The "bling" I speak of are actual Swarovski crystals. Yup, you read that right. Say it with me a few times slow...

Swwaaarooooooooooovski...
Swwaaarooooooooooovski...


I chose the Watermelon shade on white. It matches my iPod just right.


Check out the bling!

These adorable chicBuds are available online or at any Dillard's or Fred Meyer store. They retail for $49 a pair. The retractable cord locks at 5 different points to suit your needs and comfort. (No more getting cords tangled in your purse or gym bag.) There's also a clip to attach to your clothing to make sure the chord doesn't bounce up and down in front of your face.

Here's a bit of info from the chicBuds website:
Jazz up your listening with chicBuds earphones.
Retractable, decorative earphones to accessorize your music habit, whether it be with an iPod, portable CD player or your personal computer (for cell phones, see chicBabies). chicBuds are detailed with genuine Swarovski Crystals transforming, what was once simply functional, into ear candie.

Available in five delicious flavors… ah, colors: Blueberry, Grape, Watermelon, Sour Apple and Marshmallow!


The five colors of Swarovski crystals mentioned are available on white or black casing/cords.

2 winners will win six pair of chicBuds for themselves and their friends/family. Now remember, at $49 a pop, you will be winning HUGE.

  1. Oooo these would be perfect for my trip back to Australia in May.

    I love the white/green. I would love to give a pair of these to my niece Paige, she is eleven years old and would think these were wonderful.

    Really I would be happy with just one pair and share the rest around:).

    I love the sour apple on black. I would give a pair to my best friend who is finishing up her doctoral dissertation--she loves to rock out to Prince as she writes and I know she would love these!
