January Jessicurl’s "How to Beat the Winter Blues" Contest

January 15, 2008 at 8:23 am 80 comments

What would be the most fantastic way to beat the winter blues? 

Mine would be an all expenses-paid seven day trip for two to Bali!


Unfortunately, I cannot offer you this trip.  But I can let you enter January’s Jessicurl “How to Beat the Winter Blues” Contest!

To enter simply comment on something that would help you survive the rest of the winter.  I will randomly select one winner who will receive a Body Care Combo from none other than Jessicurl!

Like many of you, my skin has been itching, chapped and cracked, and calling for relief and moisture.  This past year, I have become a huge fan of Jessicurl’s haircare line, and have discovered that she carries a fabulous body care line as well! 

Jesscurl’s Shea Butter Body Mousse absorbs quickly and without leaving my skin greasy and slippery.  Your skin will drink it in and Jess’ Island Fantasy Scent will make you feel like you are sipping a frozen daiquiri (virgin for me) while sun bathing on a tropical beach!  

Jessicurl’s Body Care Combo includes:

  • a jar of Shea Butter Body Mousse
  • a jar of Body Buffer and
  • a bottle of Room and Body Fragrance Spray

These body care items come in three different scents: Island Fantasy, Citrus Lavender, and Vanilla Grapefruit (which has become my personal favorite)!

Just submit your comment about how to beat those winter blues at this post.  Please include your email if you are not a registered user, and all comments must be received before January 31, 2008.

    Reading books, catching some movies, eating out are ways I keep myself free of the winter blues.

  • 2. Abiding  |  January 15, 2008 at 3:10 pm

    Trying to get out for a daily walk if at all possibly helps my winter blues a LOT. I don’t realize how good this is for me until I miss a few days. Drinking lots of water helps, and doing some purposeful reading is also helpful. ~Leslie

  • 3. Dao Ho  |  January 16, 2008 at 9:34 am

    Going to the theater or see shows is how I do it.

  • 4. Thuy D.  |  January 16, 2008 at 9:36 am

    I am a bookworm, so reading is my escape.

  • 5. Debbie  |  January 17, 2008 at 9:41 am

    Ok, so I don’t have it as tough in the winter dept as others (living in Arizona) but I would love to have a winter break. We haven’t had a vacation in a while so we are tired!!!

    I do not envy Arizona’s summer months! Great to hear from you Debbie, you really deserve a vacation.

  • 7. tracy m  |  January 17, 2008 at 8:31 pm

    Oh, Gimme gimme gimme! It was 5, yes FIVE degrees here this morning, and I’m thinking of taking a pumice stone to the dry skin on my legs. Have mercy!

  • 8. Jen Hill  |  January 17, 2008 at 8:43 pm

    Ffffive degrees! That is really cold Tracy; in comparison it makes our 15 degree high today in Utah sound almost tropical!

    Best wishes to all of you on the contest 🙂

  • 9. Patricia Schraier  |  January 18, 2008 at 9:05 am

    A trip to Jamaica would do it.

  • 10. Kathy Conley  |  January 18, 2008 at 9:33 am

    Have a family game night and play play play!

  • 11. Charlotte Padgett  |  January 18, 2008 at 9:44 am

    I just want to win!

  • 12. Pauline Burns  |  January 18, 2008 at 10:18 am

    Exercising with Leslie Sansone’s Walk away the pounds DVD, Playing games with my kids and reading!!

  • 13. Linda Pinto  |  January 18, 2008 at 10:20 am

    I just think about going on vacation later in the year and know that winter won’t go on forever.

  • 14. Aaron Richardson  |  January 18, 2008 at 10:50 am

    Video gaming (to the max) and hot baths, not at the same time though.

  • 15. hetal gandhi  |  January 18, 2008 at 11:03 am

    I don’t like to stay at home in winter. Go out, spend time with kids in library, barnes and noble like places where kids can do their stuff and I can do mine:)

    crafts with my children

  • 18. Sylvie Argirakis  |  January 18, 2008 at 12:43 pm

    I thought a nice trip to Aruba last year for my 40th b-day would help me beat the winter blues. It doesn’t. When I got back to Cleveland, it was below zero…and I was still 40! Even worse, it’s so hard to return to winter after 7 days of heaven. It was a great trip, but does not take care of those winter blues. So, what works? Chocolate seems to be the best answer to that question for me.

  • 19. Andrea Ramjattan  |  January 18, 2008 at 1:26 pm

    Okay, our low here in Utah is going to be 1 degree!! FRIGID!!!

  • 20. Laurel  |  January 18, 2008 at 1:34 pm

    Trying some of the stellar products that Jen has recommended is a great way to beat the winter blues. I have had so much success in doing so and am so grateful for Jen’s advice!

  • 21. Tracey A  |  January 18, 2008 at 1:54 pm

    I find that drinking a margarita on the rocks or a good wine makes it all better. It warms you and relaxes you. You can also light a yummy scented, maybe tropical,to add to the atmosphere. You may want to close the shades and not look at the yucky snow too! bleh

  • 22. Israel Y  |  January 18, 2008 at 2:23 pm

    a way to beat the blues – if you can’t beat em – join em – go outside and enjoy the winter – skiing, snowboarding, skating, sledding etc etc and just remember summer is just around the corner

  • 23. jenny hebert  |  January 18, 2008 at 4:40 pm

    Basking on a sun kissed beach Oh Boy

  • 24. randi  |  January 18, 2008 at 5:10 pm

    I crave sunshine, so onthe few sunny days I try to be outside as much as possible. I also read lots & enter sweepstake!

  • 25. Victoria C.  |  January 18, 2008 at 5:11 pm

    What a great prize pack!!!

    Nesting – baking, making soups and chili, reorganizing and switching around furniture, cleaning oven, fridge and pantry out…

    I try to get a lot of the supposed “spring cleaning” around the house done during the winter so that I am more free to do as I please during the warmer months!

  • 26. Jen Hill  |  January 18, 2008 at 5:35 pm

    Wow! These are all amazing suggestions! I especially like the eating chocolate one.

    Reading all your comments really warms my heart. You all are wonderful.


  • 27. Betty Mordecai  |  January 18, 2008 at 6:43 pm

    I love to watch TV and read books and magazines.

  • 28. Teresa Hoyt  |  January 18, 2008 at 7:30 pm

    Curling up with a hot cup of tea (coffee,cocoa,etc.) , a good book and a warm fuzzy blanket.

  • 29. cynthia berry  |  January 18, 2008 at 8:21 pm

    the best way that my family and i beat the blues is to make hot chocolate ,and bake cookies. and have like a junk food junkies heaven night with new release movies,conversation,getting to know whats going on with the kids.play games. look at you summer vacation photos,plan your next summer vacation or your spring break vacation!~
    and if this doesnt work and its the sun you are missing,go to a tanning salon!its been proven that while tanning in tanning salons the body releases endorfens(not sure if i spelled that right) that makes you feel butter! but dont do it to often! its not good fo the skin! lol!!!!!

  • 30. cynthia berry  |  January 18, 2008 at 8:23 pm

    feel better,i mean! not butter!

  • 31. Patricia Simpkin  |  January 19, 2008 at 7:23 am

    I constantly read to try and save myself from the blues.

  • 32. Ic  |  January 19, 2008 at 8:31 am

    Go south, stay there, leave when it gets hot. This should be compulsory.

  • 33. Susan Chester  |  January 19, 2008 at 9:44 am

    Renting movies and eating popcorn with my BF sure help beat the blues.

  • 34. Joy Silvis  |  January 19, 2008 at 1:28 pm

    I joined the gym and working towards my swimsuit body!

  • 35. Jen Hill  |  January 19, 2008 at 3:43 pm

    Going and staying south during the winter should be compulsory!

    Any great new reads, movies, or recipes? I am always game for something wonderful.

  • 36. Susan Caldwell  |  January 19, 2008 at 3:45 pm

    To beat the winter blues,
    I take good care of myself physically….
    I eat better, I make sure I get enough sleep,
    I take my vitamins/mineral supplements,
    I dance around the house with my favorite music,
    I remind myself that summer is coming, and that
    I will be complaining about the heat soon lol.

  • 37. samantha freeman  |  January 19, 2008 at 4:09 pm

    i LOVE to play Bingo all winterlong, i dont go much in the summer, but living in Maine and having long winters, it also gives me a way to socialize.

  • 38. Amy Parsons  |  January 19, 2008 at 5:08 pm

    A cruise to the carribean.

  • 39. Anita Yancey  |  January 19, 2008 at 6:41 pm

    Cuddling up to someone warm and looking at pictures/videos of your last vacation or a really good movie.

  • 42. X Wang  |  January 19, 2008 at 10:32 pm

    Going for a run followed by a nice long shower. Then putting on sweats and watch a movie.

  • 43. Sherre Schwartz  |  January 20, 2008 at 5:51 am

    I open all the curtains wether it is sunny or not out. Seems to keep me from getting the blues.

  • 44. Frank B.  |  January 20, 2008 at 3:52 pm

    I don’t get the winter blues.

  • 45. laura cutshall  |  January 20, 2008 at 8:44 pm

    I cook and clean to try to stave off cabin fever!

  • 46. Patricia Winiecki  |  January 21, 2008 at 6:54 pm

    I ski in Tahoe!

  • 47. Pat Connors  |  January 21, 2008 at 7:20 pm

    Baking cookies as a family.

  • 48. LINDA MCKINNEY  |  January 22, 2008 at 7:06 am

    A brisk walk on the beach here in Cocoa Beach, Florida does the trick!

  • 49. yoopernewsman  |  January 22, 2008 at 10:50 am

    Get outside – sun is important to fight winter blues – even if it’s a chilly day.
    Even a few minutes a day – let the sun shine on your face – take a walk to the neighborhood store.
    Take a short walk anywhere.

  • 50. Bionic Beauty  |  January 22, 2008 at 8:57 pm

    I’m going for the silly route here… staring at John Barrowman who plays Captain Jack Harkness on the BBC series, Torchwood. Between him and the rest of the purdy cast, it’ll beat my winter blahs any day. 😉

  • 51. Joy  |  January 23, 2008 at 9:09 pm

    I’d like to experience *more* winter–witnessing the Iditarod.

  • 52. Jen Hill  |  January 23, 2008 at 10:40 pm

    I am following some of your advice:

    1. I took all the kids sledding today in the bright sunlight.
    2. I baked a double batch of brownies.
    3. I am going to watch an episode of “Torchwood” on BB’s recommendation.
    4. I am booking a flight reservation to Cocoa Beach, Florida. Linda, I’d be willing to sleep on your couch! 🙂

    Your suggestions really are helping me battle the winter blues!
    Many thanks.

    We bake. Cookies, cup cakes, pies, breads…….whatever. Not only does it pass some bonding time, it also heats up the kitchen and keeps us warm.

    Thanks for the chance to win

    I like to curl up with a good book and a nice cozy blanket!

  • 58. Jennifer Kmita  |  January 28, 2008 at 8:19 am

    Best way to beat the winter blues – baking chocolate chip cookies and cuddling up with the family drinking hot chocolate.

  • 59. Nicole Price  |  January 29, 2008 at 9:40 am

    I love winter time. It’s so fun to take my boys outside and let them play. I think it would be even better if we got a couple feet of snow. Nothing like playing all day and then coming inside for a big mug of hot chocolate.

  • 60. JoAnn zimmerman  |  January 29, 2008 at 3:08 pm

    good stuff

  • 61. Jodi W  |  January 29, 2008 at 3:21 pm

    Warm fires, hot chocolate and my favorite movies are my way of beating those old winter blues.

  • 65. Jackie O  |  January 30, 2008 at 6:26 pm

    I’m in Michigan and don’t mind winter too much, you don’t feel guilty when you curl up with a blanket, put some logs in the fire, and read or watch movies!!

  • 66. Pamela White  |  January 30, 2008 at 6:45 pm

    More sunshine and some Shea Butter for my dry skin would get me through winter

  • 70. Annika  |  January 31, 2008 at 12:55 pm

    I like to have myfriend Mo come over and give me a makeover! And playing tennis on the Wii is almost just like playing outside in the sun…almost.

  • 71. Jessie Anderson  |  January 31, 2008 at 2:40 pm

    I’m a Jessie with curly hair – so these sound like my kind of products!

  • 72. Barbara McHenry  |  January 31, 2008 at 6:28 pm

    be sure and get out of the house but dress warm and stay warm and dry

  • 73. Kristen Hendricks  |  January 31, 2008 at 10:37 pm

    I beat the winter blues by staying in the house a lot and watching my favorite TV shows. Sometimes it is just too cold out there. However, when it is sunnier and a little milder out I will go out for a drive and that makes me forget about the winter for a while and the promise of spring coming up. I’ll also power walk when it is sunnier and a little milder out.

  • 74. L McLendon  |  January 31, 2008 at 11:59 pm

    A nice new robe!

  • 76. ray davison, II  |  February 1, 2008 at 7:49 am

    Hot bubble bath. That always warms up my feet. And a good fire in the fire place!

  • 77. Sandy  |  February 1, 2008 at 8:30 am

    Reading books, curling up with a cup of hot cocoa, and watching lots of old movies!

  • 78. Nina Cunningham  |  February 1, 2008 at 8:48 am

    Reading (and living vicariously through) all the travel brochures that I’ve been receiving for our upcoming vacation.

  • 79. jen38  |  February 1, 2008 at 10:46 am

    I do the very same thing Nina. Instead of travel brochures, I watch Rick Steves or another PBS travel show. Italy, Mexico, Portugal, Bali, Brazil, and Canary Islands. One of these days I will get there!

    Many thanks for all your wonderful suggestions. I am delighted to get your comments. I will announce the winner tomorrow, good luck!

    😉 Jen
