‘Eat, pray, love’ may be the mantra that has drawn many ladies to Bali, yet Indonesia’s Island of the Gods is truly a shopper’s paradise so maybe it should be ‘eat, pray, love…shop’! Bali is a piece of heaven (we know!) but it’s also a hidden gem for fashion lovers and those searching for amazing unique clothing pieces.

We wanted to share our Bliss experience as far as it can go and so we created Bliss News. Even if you can’t go on a beautiful personalised Women’s Retreat right now, we hope you can take the time to add a bit more bliss to your life in whatever way you choose. Self love comes in all different shapes and sizes but the one thing it has in common is that it starts with you. We hope some of our ideas and laughs and wellness retreat additions are something you can incorporate into your everyday life... love Zoë xxx
