Bliss Happens will arm readers with useful tips and inspiring tools to reinvent themselves, their lives and uncover their overall BLISS (an acronym for: Beauty, Living, Inexpensive, Simplicity and Solutions).

Did you know there are colors you can wear to feel and project happiness? What about certain scents that can give you Bliss? And did you ever think that drinking the right smoothie in the morning or adding secret ingredients in your bathtub could ignite Bliss in your life? Kym also shares her simple dos and don’ts of Bliss (e.g. Do practice being grateful. Don’t make excuses).
Bliss Happens is a simple, step-by-step daily guide that’ll help you look gorgeous, feel fantastic, and fall desperately in love with your life.

The Bliss Plan comes together in three parts: a one-week Beauty Bliss Plan, a one-week Living Bliss Plan, and a thirty-day overall Bliss Plan. The exhilarating six-week process begins with the Bliss Quiz to find out where you currently rank on the Bliss Scale and how far you can go toward enjoying everyday Bliss. The revolutionary concepts in Bliss Happens have the ability to yield major life-changing results for its readers.
