Most of us lead desperately busy lives, with little time, we think, for spoiling ourselves or others. Yet wouldn't it be good to feel that we could make even the most everyday activities a little special?
Domestic Bliss shows how to do just that. From throwing dinners and parties that everyone will kill to be invited to and welcoming house guests in style (even if they are only sleeping on the sofa), to forcing the more tedious domestic chores into submission and becoming the most ingenious present-giver ever, this book is packed with ideas.
With Rita's idiosyncratic, sometimes bossy, always entertaining text, a chic design and fabulous publicity guaranteed, this book will allow everyone to add a little sparkle to life.
About the Author

This book did have some good ideas but I would only recommend it to people who live a disorderly life and need help with the day to day living to make their life easier and how to be a good host when having family and friends over.
