How to enjoy the 6 extra weeks of winter

groundhogI know this is old news already, but I had to show some love to Phil the groundhog. The poor little guy was rudely awoken on a Monday morning, dragged out of his warm bed and had to make a public appearance before getting to brush his teeth or wipe the sleepies from his eyes.

If someone did that to me, it would NOT be a pretty sight. I’d be a veritable fashion disaster: black sweatpants, a Boston University t-shirt, a fluffy sweatshirt, monkey slippers and I’d be wrapped tightly around my down blanket (which the allergist says I have to part with *sob* *snifle* *cry*). Plus, you’d see me sans makeup-the HORROR! This is an okay look in front of Hubby-he sees me without makeup all the time and swears he can’t tell if I’m wearing any or not. I think he needs to make an appointment at the eye doctor STAT!

I’m not sure if I necessarily believe in a cute little furry guy determining the weather, but if we’re going to have 6 extra weeks of winter, let’s make the most of it, shall we?

Miss Bliss’ Six Tips to Enjoy the rest of winter:

1. Get your feet winterized! The Billow from FitFlop is on sale for $99.99 and all February long you’ll receive a free full-sized Lovehandler with every purchase (except gift cards and e-cards). Your feet will be ready for winter + your abs will be ready for that itsy bitsy bikini come summertime!

2. Get bundled up! White + Warren Loose Cashmere Wrap is so soft you’ll never want to take it off (and why should you!). The best part? 50% of proceeds benefit the Women at Risk, a breast cancer research firm.

3. Get physical! Nothing helps boost my mood like a good workout at the gym. Yoga is a personal favorite of mine. I have a *slight* addiction to cute yoga clothes. Velvet is one of my most crush-worthy brands. Their clothes last for a million washes and the color never fades. And they’re so soft. If you’re an NYC yoga babe, I highly recommend Yoga Works. They just opened up a studio in SoHo right near Bliss HQ and a bunch of us lucky Blissers were recently treated to a free yoga class. We’ve been Om-ing our way around the office ever since.

4. Get a massage + do good at the same time. Our r.e.s.t. massage lets you give back while you relax your back (and the rest of you). Includes an hour of kneading and 15 minutes of either reflexology or scalp massage. 20% of profits go to The R.E.S.T. Initiative, which calms patients with complimentary massages in their chemotherapy treatment rooms.

5. Quench dry skin with our best-selling body product: Lemon + Sage Body Butter!. If your skin has been mistaken for the bark of a redwood tree more than once in the past couple of months, you might want to consider switching your moisturizer! The Crocadile look is sooooo last season.

6. Nominate a glam-loving good samaritan to win a free Best of Skintentions (bonus: nominators receive one as well for taking the time to give their good samaritan a shout out!).

….and it all else fails, go on a tropical vacation + sip some fruity libations by the beach!

Bliss Kisses!

About karenglidden

My name is Karen Glidden and I’m the web content coordinator for Bliss. I will be the primary author of Bliss n Tell. For all your beautification needs, please refer to My background is not beauty related at all. I graduated from Boston University and worked at Starbucks for many years climbing their corporate ladder. Pre-Bliss, my idea of a milky cleanser was the residue left on my face after making cappuccinos all day. I’ve been with Bliss since October 2007 and have been converted into a product worshipper. I’m the MacGyver of skincare. I love inventing new uses to beauty products. You’ll find me putting toner on my legs to help with dry skin, wearing my glamour gloves on the subway to smooth my hands, and using skincare in my hair to tame flyaways. Oh, did I mention that I’m totally frugal. Yes, this little Bliss girl is a ‘recessionista’ for sure (hey, I still have student loans to pay off!) My skin type is normal. I’m not particularly breakout prone unless it’s stress related or hormonal. I’m not too oily, but sometimes dry all over depending on the weather. I’ve got an even skin tone and not too many fine lines, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation. I have some sun damage from years of sun-worshipping sans SPF, my greatest skincare regret in life. My biggest skin concern are fine lines/wrinkles around my eyes and laugh lines around my mouth. Oh, and some uh….cellulite on my bum/thighs. Yes, I am human (you can stop pointing and laughing now, thanks!). My Favorite Bliss Product: I can’t choose just one. It’s a tie between Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask and A Tan For All Seasons Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask is my five minute beauty fix for just about everything (breakouts, dull/tired skin, dryness). A Tan For All Seasons is my best friend. It’s a stink-free tan in a can. I cannot live without a sun-kissed glow all year (without the UV damage, of course!)
