A GIVEAWAY AT LAST!!

It is time to host my first ever giveaway here at BRiCCK. I'm joining up with a blog carnival called Bloggy Giveaways to flood the blogosphere with fun freebies and prizes.
So basically all you have to do is leave a comment at the end of this post and you'll be in the drawing to win the spectacular prize given here by me, but wait there's more....


If you click on the graphic above you will find links to literally hundreds of other bloggy giveaways around the world too. Free stuff everywhere, yay!


'So what's the prize already?', you ask. Well...


I have trouble with in-grown toe nails.


Wait, don't leave...it gets better.


See, if I wear socks for too long it really makes my toes hurt. I have to have my toes free and clear most of the time or I'm in a lot of pain. So, 'Why don't you just go barefoot as often as possible?', you ask. I would if it wasn't 50 degrees in our house for 5 months of the year because we are too cheap to turn our heat up. See. So I have to wear socks or my feet freeze...although that does mean I can't feel my toes anymore so it isn't all bad....anyway, I have found a great alternative.


Brian got me these warm fuzzy chenile-kind-of socks. They keep my feet really warm but they are very lightweight and don't have much elastic in them so they are not too confining on my toes. I love 'em. So I am offering your own pair. You can keep your toes warm and cozy...but not confined...on these chilly spring evenings.


The drawing begins immediately and ends on Saturday April 26th. I will post the winner's name here at the blog on Monday April 28th. Just leave me a comment and you will be automatically entered in the drawing.


I'm so excited.

I really like those kinds of socks!

michelle said...

How did you know I desperately needed new socks? I really dislike slippers, but the house is so cold in the mornings when I wake up that I have to put something on my feet, so I grab a pair of socks. Of course I run into a similar problem to you. Socks just feel so confining first thing in the morning. I would love to give these a try. I would love to be entered in your giveaway.

Crystal said...

Yes, they are too thick to get a pair of shoes on over them but you can wear Crocs (or cheap croc knock-offs, like I do) over them easily.

sarah said...

Your giveaway prize made me giggle because it reminded me of my ex's attitude towards socks...and feet. He thinks feet are the absolute most ugliest body part on a human being ever and prefers people keep their socks on at all times (yes! even in bed!!!) so he won't have to look at them. Geez. I think my feet at pretty anyway.
