I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Gold Toe. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. Dear Diary, This has been a busy week. Scratch that. It has been a busy month, and June has just begun. So far, I managed a new project at work, travelled out of town twice, spoke at a writing conference and worked on my blog. I’m so exhausted I have to take a nap to be tired! My calendar is packed with work. Unfortunately, there isn’t any me time–like going to the salon and spa. Heck, who am I kidding? I haven’t penciled in regular pampering appointments lately. So, what’s an overworked mom to do? I slipped into a pair of Oh.So.Soft Gold Toe Socks. When you don’t have the energy to keep up with the kids, why try? Unwind! Kick back with a fuzzy robe, a cup of tea and a comfy pair of socks. This is my mini spa day. I usually send my money on my daughter and not myself. So taking a short mental vacation works wonders. And due to the affordable prince tag, I won’t feel guilty buying something that isn’t from a children’s clothing or toy store. The socks are made out of ultra soft microfiber polyester, spandex and reinforced toes. So, they’re soft. They fit. And they’re durable. I rarely find that combination wrapped up into one product. And when I’m ready to get up off the couch and wind as my West Indian friends say, my family is ready to have some fun and dance their socks off! Once upon a time, my parents danced every weekend. Nowadays, they’re babysitting their three grandchildren, but a couple of decades ago, they spent their Friday nights in a dance hall. Crowds circled around my father, cheering him to shake, rattle and roll. He would twist and shout for hours. He passed down his enthusiasm to dance to his family, all of which strike a pose and tap their toes on cue. My daughter wiggled ever since she could walk. My oldest nephew is too cool to sweat, but he busts a move when they aren’t any girls around. And my youngest nephew twists and turns into shapes I didn’t know existed–not she if what he does is classified as dancing though. The three went toe-to-toe recently in a Dance Your Socks Off Video Contest hosted on EllenTube and presented by Gold Toe. The Dance Your Socks Off competition is a way to let loose and give your feet the luxurious comfort they deserve! As you can see, my family thought they deserved a few pairs! They stole my socks. But fortunately, since the Julian, a.k.a. the contortionist, wouldn’t give them back after the shoot. He said, and I quote, these are Oh.So.Soft He giggled when I told him that was the actual name of the socks. The socks felt Oh.So.Good on my feet too! I sat back and relaxed on the couch and read them a story while they boogied like it wasn’t a school night, and summer wasn’t weeks away. Check out our video! Your family can dance their socks off as well! And maybe you’ll even win $10,000. If I win, I can take a vacation to one of those super fancy health spas in Arizona. How would you spend the money?
