Overview

The Ellen DeGeneres Show beauty guru, best-selling author & fabulous TV personality offers a fool-proof plan to improve your beauty, health and life in six weeks or less!

Have the everyday stresses of life caused you to lose your sparkle? Are you looking to take your life from drab to fab? Or maybe you’re already in a good place and just want to live, look, and feel even better. Well, Bliss Happens is the answer! Hollywood’s favorite ‘Blissologist,’ Kym Douglas, is revealing her insider’s guide to having it all in her new book Bliss Happens: The Six-Week Plan to a Happier, Prettier, Thinner and Richer Life.

Whether climbing into a noodle-filled bathtub, smearing pureed pumpkin on her face, or pouring maple syrup on her hair and wrapping it in cellophane, Kym Douglas is bursting with ingenious ideas for affordable beauty, lifestyle and home solutions. 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).

So, how do you find your Bliss? Studies have found that the most unexpected daily decisions can ultimately contribute to your Bliss, and Kym is spilling the beans on all of them. 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. This book will magically transform your grocery list into a beauty regimen, turn your home into an oasis on a shoestring budget, and help you discover easy solutions in the midst of everyday dilemmas. From Beauty Bliss to Mom Bliss, Man Bliss and Body Bliss, Kym Douglas will have your family, home, body, health and schedule working together in perfect harmony in just SIX WEEKS!

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.

Kym Douglas’s Bliss Plan includes fun, affordable, informative and sometimes wacky tips in the following categories:

Beauty:

- Would you ever think of a Lychee Lightening Facial for age spots? That’s just one of the many wild, wacky, but extremely useful and proven beauty tips that you’ll get with Kym’s ultimate Beauty-on-a-Budget Pantry Raid. These are new, outrageous anti-aging and skincare solutions that work better than the pricey potions and lotions! Kym takes you on a scavenger hunt in your own fridge to reveal a treasure trove of beauty secrets.

Body:

- Kym also offers some amazing “Bliss-ercise” ideas for you: Did you know that a broom can tone your arms, back and butt while strengthening you from head to toe? And what does a dandelion have to do with busting your bloat? More than you’d think! Plus, you can whip up a Bliss Smoothie with guilt-free, fat-blasting ingredients that are proven to help make you feel lighter and brighter.

Home:

- Learn how to unlock the secrets to Bliss in your home simply by changing your paint color! Kym's secrets to interior Bliss will take living to a whole new level. Did you know that you should stimulate all five senses in order for your environment to feed your Bliss? And Kym doesn’t leave out the ultimate bedroom Bliss tips—ooh la la!

Moms:

- Kym offers Mom-specific Bliss-scriptions to help your mom discover (or rediscover) the woman she always wanted to be. Mom will learn how to shorten that dull to-do list while boosting her Bliss List.

Men:

- The men in your life (husband, boyfriend, son) may need a little help finding their Bliss too! Breakouts affecting your makeouts? Funky feet keeping you from getting close? Operation Man Bliss is in order! From Athlete's Beer Pedicures to Top Shelf Odor Killers, and even a Butt Facial, your man’s newfound Bliss is destined to increase your own!
