Hello Fellow Bliss Mavens,
Summer is finally here!
In celebration of warmer weather and longer days, the Bliss Editorial team is kicking off a community-wide, healthy living challenge to keep us and our readers thriving all season long. Bliss.com has partnered with a super cool company called social workout to make this easy and super fun, and I would love you to participate!
What is the Summer of Bliss Challenge?
Summer of Bliss is a personal challenge we’ve designed to inspire you (and myself when I’m having a hard day!) to accomplish better health habits on a daily basis. Even if you’re already healthy, this extra fun challenge will help you push yourself to the next level!
Summer of Bliss is a four week challenge with five healthy goals to hit each week. Challengers log in and track their progress, receiving scores along the way for a chance to win prizes. Challengers can compete alone or in a team, so if you have a flock of loyal readers, consider creating a team. Remember, it’s more fun with friends!
What does it entail?
Easy! All you do is sign up and create a profile. You can log and track your goals online or on your mobile device. Plus, you can host an easy-to-embed widget displaying up to the moment stats on your progress.
Ready to get started?
Step 1: Visit the challenge page and SIGN UP NOW!
Step 2: If you’d like to join an existing team (eh hem, like Media Maven’s Bliss Centric Mavens), check out the teams in the challenge in the upper right hand corner. Click into the team page, click Join, and you’re done!
Step 3: If you’d like to create a team, head to the Social Workout teams page
Step 4: Shoot when done creating your team to add your team to the challenge, and start cheering wildly!
Step 5: Invite your friends to join your team in the challenge!

We are officially in summer mode! The following trends come directly from Merle Norman’s NEW summer 2012 collection:
Featuring this season’s natural shades paired with neutrals and maritime-inspired colors, the Summer Color Collection features two Limited Edition Eyecolor Quads filled with brilliant blues, sandy neutrals, earthy brown shimmers and moss greens. The Nautical & Nice palette includes natural shadows (Barefoot and Truffle), and a nautical shade (Look Both Waves) that pair perfectly with a deep blue cream liner (In The Navy) to accentuate the eye. The Wooded Bliss palette marries earthy tones with dashes of shimmer for the perfect summer eye. Featuring woody hues (Shorley and Espresso) and a greenery-inspired shade (Play Thyme), the earth tone eye look is completed with a deep brown cream liner (Teak).
Add a flush of color to cheeks with the season-appropriate Lasting Cheek Color ($16) in limited edition Peach to the Choir. Featuring just the right hint of shimmer, this neutral peach adds the perfect dose of color.
This summer, Merle Norman Cosmetics is celebrating lips with bold and punchy colors, ranging from daring corals to flirty melons and pinks. Debuting several limited edition options, Creamy Lipcolor (SRP: $15) in Lady Marmalade, a pulpy peachy pink; a translucent peach Lip Polish, Pinkini; a prettiest girly pink Lip Glaze (SRP: $15) in Pink-A-Boo!. For a more defined pout, Merle Norman will also introduce a permanent fixture to its lip offerings with the Lip Pencil Plus ($14) in A Flare To Remember, a sophisticated coral liner designed specifically to complement all skin tones. This dual-sided liner features a liner side in a hue, while the lip color side is brighter true coral, allowing you to customize the shade!
Providing the ultimate sun kissed look, the new Bronzing Powder Collection features two unique shades designed for daily wear: Pool Side and Beach Side. Unlike other bronzing products, this specially designed powder contains super-micronized pigments that work with the topology of the skin to deliver 3D color results for a healthy, natural glow. Infused with Apple Extract Complex and Revidrate™, this super-hydrating, oil-free formula allows for an effortless blend and boost of color for all skin types. To use, lightly dust over the face or for a deeper color, apply more intensely. SRP: $20
