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.
Can I say that it has been a really long week? Like crazy long, trying to cram a million things into a short amount of time week. Like working into the wee hours of the morning just trying to keep up without totally neglecting my kids during the day kind of week? Yeah, well it has. And my husband has been out of town so I'm doing all of this extra juggling on my own.
It's a good thing. My blog is doing very well. My essential oil business is blooming. My consulting and freelance writing business is always busy too. It's better to be busy, than bored right? But that doesn't mean this mama doesn't need a break. A serious break.
Unfortunately, there isn't a light at the end of the tunnel just yet. That means that I have to sneak a few moments in for myself here and there. I confess, I may have taken an extra long shower even though we're in a drought. I may be reaching for the essential oils a bit more often to keep me calm and focused. And I may have reveled in the silence just a bit when the power went out during a storm and I had to stop working for the night and go to bed at a somewhat reasonable hour.
During that storm, the temperature cooled down quite a bit and we had the house opened up to let the fresh mountain air into the house. Normally I'm on the hot side, but I found my feet getting a bit chilly! So I reached for my Gold Toe Oh.So.Soft socks. Remember how I told you last week that one of my fitness tips was wearing comfortable socks, and my Gold Toe Oh.So.Soft socks had been my go to lately?
Well, let me tell you. They are pretty darn comfortable around the house too! The soft fabric made my chilly feet happy while I was sitting on the couch in front of my computer with Grey's Anatomy playing in the background and the essential oil diffuser putting some uplifting scents into the air.
If you haven't tried the Gold Toe Oh.So.Soft socks yet, you should give them a try. They are an affordable little luxury you can use to help yourself relax just a bit at the end of a long week. You're a hard working mama and you deserve a little pampering sometimes too.
