Spreading bliss is more than an action. It’s a way of life. It’s about embracing the strength of the smallest act of kindness and knowing that it can make a large impact. It’s about loving freely and radically. It’s about knowing that you have the power, anywhere and anytime, to create a beautiful ripple effect in the world and can brighten even the darkest of days. Leave a trail of light wherever you go.

You are light. You are bliss.


My name is Ansley and I believe that every day is a new chance to spread light into other’s lives. I created Braided Bliss with the mission of doing so one fabric at a time. From watching a man with no fingers execute a perfect javelin throw to hearing a college girl say she was a three time cancer survivor and proceeded to thank my friend and me for raising awareness for Headbands of Hope, I have seen and heard a lot of people’s stories.

It’s unbelievable how much perseverance, determination, and resilience a  person can have.With a career in social media marketing and a passion for helping others, I created Braided Bliss in order to combine the two.

With social media your reach far outweighs the length of your arms…especially with a 5’0 stature.  I revel in the fact that you can touch people’s lives even if you can’t see them in person.

So whether your kind gesture towards another human being is grandiose or short and simple, always remember to take that step because you’ll be making an impact in someone’s life.

“Wherever there is a human, there is an opportunity for a kindness”
