holiday giveaway!

Wednesday, December 3, 2008

if you are reading this right now i like you - a lot.

and during this holiday season i want to thank you for reading this little blog of mine by giving you something that is not only practical but extremely functional...

SOCKS!

but not just
any socks people, these are the rolls royce of socks. KN socks to be exact.

karen neuburger (KN) started out simply making comfy pajamas in her basement. little did karen know that she was about to instantly be catapulted into the big leagues once oprah (the oprah) featured her pajamas on her famous favorite things show.

those ridiculously soft pajamas were the start of a whole KN empire including men, women, kids, home and gift lines. and socks, don't forget socks.

i'm lucky to be giving away four pairs of the KN chenille feet treats cupcake socks. how cute are these? they are cozy too, i'm wearing the blue bell pair right now.

all packaged and ready to eat wear - check out the cherry on top.

now before all of my favorite male readers get in a huff that this is a GIRL prize think about how your mother, grandmother, girlfriend or wife would appreciate these socks when their toes are about to fall off cause you're too lazy to turn up the heat.

it's even gift wrapped for you already!

how to enter:

1. look at your feet - right now.


i'll wait.

....

2. tell me what your feet currently are wearing in the comment section

your feet could literally be wearing anything - sneakers, socks, red stilettos, tall black boots, slippers, or even... nothing at all. wink wink.

i will choose the FOUR winners on wednesday, december 17th and ship out the KN feet treats to the lucky recipients just in time for the holidays.

this contest is open to all plum readers not just bloggers - so lurkers, delurk! but if you aren't a blogger and i don't have your email address please also include it in your comment.

thanks again for reading and good luck!

  5. What a cute giveaway! My feet have nothing on them, unless you count being wrapped up in a blanket?

  6. OMG, in total honesty, my feet are wearing sparkly silver penguin socks from the dollar store. Don't judge me!!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I have no use for the socks, but I laughed heartily at "or even.....nothing at all. wink wink." How's that for dedicated readership?

    ReplyDelete
  8. I'm wearing calf-length slipper socks that make my feet sweat five minutes after I put them on. They get the job done though!

    I want edible socks! nom nom nom

    ReplyDelete
  9. I have on my rainbow striped socks that go up past my knee. They not only keep my legs warm at night but they make your legs look like a clown and they support all gay and lesbian causes.

    ReplyDelete
  10. My feet are wearing gold glitter high heels from payless.

    Okay, so I went and put them on so I could leave this comment. The important thing is that I own them.

    I'm kind of upset you didn't say you were giving away "5 foot" socks. I wanted someone else to feel like an idiot!

  11. Well, seeing as my new home office has some kind of insulation problem, I should probably be wearing socks or slippers right now. Instead, my little tootsies are bare and shivering to death under the desk. Also quite cold are my hands and nose (irrelevant, but true).

    It's not so bad though, because when I get in bed, I can warm my icy feet of doom on my husband's warm legs. Unfortunately, he generally feels that this is torture and a crime against humanity, and demonstrates his passionate opinion by screaming at me to get my freezer burned toes on my side of the bed. For some reason, that never stops me from trying to use him as a foot warmer.

    So, basically, if I won these socks, Izzy would be the real winner :). You could warm both our hearts, my feet and his nighttime experience all at once.

  12. I love a good pair of comfy socks! Brookstone sells AMAZING socks called Nap Socks. Heaven. Anyway my feet are naked (eek!).

    ReplyDelete
  13. I am wearing trouser socks. buddharat@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm wearing white socks with grey toes and heels. They're looking a little sad though, as in, losing their white-ness. They're also not necessarily pleasant smelling due to me having worn them all day. TMI, I know.

    ReplyDelete
  15. gray socks with tan and black stripes with a hole in my left big toe. <-- FAIL. i've been wearing them all day and now i'm in bed and refuse to take them off cause my apt is so freakin cold. hmmm thats not very exciting at all...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oooooo I would love me some socks! I even sleep with them on in the winter. Currently I am sporting ankle length, thick white, cotton socks. I know, not very impressive, but they are what I wear to bed. With my pjs.

    ReplyDelete
  17. hanes black ankle socks & black chucks that need to be cleaned

    ReplyDelete
  18. How cute are those!!! I love socks. Right now I'm wearing plain brown work socks, but I'm about to put on my fuzzy purple deliciously warm ones!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm wearing a lovely pair of ski socks....Navy blue on top, with charcoal gray on bottom. Nice and toasty in this weather.

    PS I bet my pregnant wife's feet would LOVE a pair of these socks! Believe it or not they are actually on her Christmas list.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Currently wearing your basic white athletic socks, post-soccer game must. I like socks.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Pink plaid Chucks... there's a picture of them in my most recent blog post. I basically live in them.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I am wearing the kind of socks that used to be very robust and awesome, but have warn down... so now they keep my feet just warm enough to have some sock worth. They are my favorite kind of socks because everyone tells me to throw them away.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Haha this is so fun! I'm actually not wearing any socks right now though :( Sadness!

    ReplyDelete
  24. A new pair of Hanes socks that I got at Garden Ridge Thanksgiving day! It was 6 pairs for only $2! What a steal!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wearing nothing. My email is Lebner1 at Yahaoo.com (I'm a new reader)

    ReplyDelete
  26. My feet are totally wearing skin. I just rolled outta bed.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Now this? Is a totally excellent idea. I might have to borrow it from you in the coming weeks!

    So, this morning, I put a little lotion on my super-dry feet. Then I snuggled them into my super thick wool socks. And pulled my (fake) fur lined boots over them. Look, I had to walk the dog and it was 10 degrees this morning when I woke up. Brrrrr!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Stockings.

    They were wearing shoes not 10 minutes ago but my feet already started hurting :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. You like me!! You really like me!!!!

    and I go barefoot.

    I'm a rebel like that.

    ReplyDelete
  30. you got me. tall black boots :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. My feet are bare with a slight coat of fur on them. Wait, before you dry heave a little it is because I have a doggie sitting on them in an effort to keep the frostbite from coming to my tootsies. I make Lil and Ellie change shifts every couple of hours. Socks would be better though.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Lexi Poo ~ My feet are wearing gray Banana Republic socks and my red Gianni Bini shoes that I have had for 5 years that you always told me to throw away but that I kept at work so that you wouldn't make fun of me for them. They are great work shoes! Pregnant ladies need comfy socks! That is all.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Right now I'm wearing Ugg Slippers. They're pretty amazing. The socks are so cute! What a good gift idea.

    ReplyDelete
  34. My feet are wearing a pair of slip-on Merrell's that the ex gave me... I should've burned them but they're too comfortable. No socks today..

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  36. I am wearing tan trouser socks (does that make me sound 100 years old?) and brown LL Bean slip on shoes so I don't fall flat on my face on the ice.

    If those socks are anything like the fuzzy pink socks I wear around the house, they are wonderful!!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. My feet are sporting an old pair of paul frank red flip flop slippers! Happy Holiday Alexa!

  40. (delurking)

    We kind of run in the same circles as far where we eat (bar cento, etc) but I'm a 30-something blogger so I don't think we've ever met! LOL

    Anyway, my stay-at-home Mommy feet are wearing white socks (have to take the kids to the Y for gym class in a while so I have to have them on, otherwise they'd be naked)and fuzzy slippers.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I am wearing some black Nine West flats (these, in black: http://www.amazon.com/Nine-West-Womens-Ballet-Brown/dp/B000MUUNLY/ref=sr_1_18?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1228401904&sr=1-18).

    The guy I'm dating said they look like "pilgrim shoes." I can't say that I disagree.

    ReplyDelete
  42. woo! i love cupcakes so this picture got me excited. i also love warm socks.

    im wearing some black socks with little....stars on them?, under some black boots.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh this is adorable - I love this giveaway! The boy toy will love it too (if I win) because my feet are always frigid. He says it feels like I'm dead below the ankle. But I digress...

    My feet are wrapped in blue and yellow argyle socks underneath a pair of black patent leather stiletto boots that rose just above the ankle. Surprisingly, much more comfortable than it sounds.

    ReplyDelete
  44. My feet are wearing a pink pedicure, sterling silver toe ring(right foot, 2nd toe) plus a pair of 3 inch, black, pointed-toe, snake skin, stilettos!

  51. I love giveaways!

    I am wearing black knee high socks with my black stiletto knee high boots. Once I discovered that it's a lot easier to zip up my boots with the knee high socks, I always try to wear the tall socks with them!

    ReplyDelete

    I'm wearing North Face snow boots (one, sadly, has a stuck zipper so I can't close it) and black socks with snowflakes on them.

    ReplyDelete
  54. How fun! The packaging is totally cute!

    Currently, my feet and toesies are naked. Whenever I have time to get ready in the morning, I always lazily get myself together. Whatever goes on feet comes last so they don't get too hot. *shrugs*

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  57. That's a great contest! My feet are wearing, in this order:

    a yellow "special today" sticker that I stepped on, my favorite green and purple Puma sneakers that have not failed me yet (please don't you ever die!), boring black socks that are thinning in the heel, Carolyn brand nail polish in "West Side Highway Pink" on my toes, and two surgical pins. (Right foot only.)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Yay! I haven't posted before and read a few times so here goes: today, my feet are cozy in blue stripey socks and Rocket Dog engineer boots. My newest and most favorite pair of shoes. :) And of course, red toenail polish.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love the cupcake packaging!! I'm wearing Ugg boots with no socks... which is probably why my feet smell when I go home at night. :(

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  63. Honest to goodness, I'm wearing my "its all about me" socks, with my k-swiss sneakers. My socks are black and white, my shoes are white. I'm pretty sure it breaks some fashion rule but I don't know anything about all that.

    Perhaps I need direction. Like, free sock direction. I could also enjoy a cupcake I don't have to eat, or do 800 jumping jacks to burn off. =)

    ReplyDelete
  64. if anything will cause me to delurk is is free shit.

    i am wearing nothing even though i am at work. red toenails, sitting crosslegged in my chair, shoes are kicked off under the desk. when i hear someone come down the hall, i have to frantically try to get them back on.

    it's fun.

  91. seriously, this always happens.

    i keep a spare set of flats under my desk for days where i wear boots/something uncomfy on my feet to work. which is great, until i wear flats to work. and then kick them off while i'm at my desk. and then don't look down when putting on shoes to get up. and then taadaaaaaa at some point in the day i look down at my feet and i'm wearing one of the white flats i wore to work, and one of the black ones i keep here.

    so yeah, i'm 5 and my shoes don't match. classic.

    ReplyDelete
  98. My feets have some fugly black lace up shoes on whose soles I must sadly say, are only staying on through the miracle of a hot glue gun. Sad.

    ReplyDelete
  99. girl you got 103 comments about socks!

    ReplyDelete

  103. It is a work day, so just plain old black socks. I'm kind of disappointed I did this today and that I am neurotically honest because two days ago they were pink polka dots with cats, which are clearly about twenty two billion times cooler!

    ReplyDelete
  104. I'm at work right now (and it's raining) so my feet are very boring - black socks and black leather loafers. My feet really wish they were wearing my fuzzy slippers.

  116. I am wearing black tights and PLUM boots. They are slouchy and suede and I love them. They are perfect for prancing around downtown on a cold snowy day (once they have been waterproofed that is). In fact one of the Trolley drivers said I had some sweet kicks. I smiled and then rode for free.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I am wearing plain white socks and my yellow "I just realized, I don't care" Happy Bunny slippers.

  118. I'm wearing an old pair of argyle socks I stole from my dad when I was in high school. They're gray with navy, maroon and white argyle design. They're a little too big for my feet.

    And on top of the socks I have black ballet-style not-quite-flats with a knot detail. (I know black and navy don't technically match. I accidentally grabbed the wrong shoes on the way out today.)

    What an embarrassing day to admit what's on my feet!

    ReplyDelete
  119. 1 reebok pump and 1 water sock... okay. I'm lying. I'm naked... but I have socks on my feet.
