The winter blues are no joke! I recently spent a year living in beautiful Burlington, Vermont. The first time that I visited Burlington was in July 2012.

Months passed and the number of daylight hours became shorter.

I have found that if me and my husband takes just a weekend get-a-way even if weather is same there seems to help me. I guess it is just the change of scenery and shopping at beauty stores I don’t have in my area is a big plus.

I use to have the winter blues so badly here in Minnesota. That I use to go to the tanning bed just to feel the warmth and fake smile It wasn’t healthy but we have some long winters here. Now I’m super pleased to say I haven’t had the winter yucks in almost 3 years now… oh and I gave up tanning beds. I finally found something that works and it’s so crazy good too! ?
