Her brand began with her self-help book entitled “Happy Bitch – The girlfriend’s straight-up guide to losing the baggage and finding the fun, fabulous you inside!” In her straight-up and “girlfriend-friendly” style, Keryl shares her newfound perspective and strength following a painful divorce and shows readers how regardless of their baggage, they too can transform their lives from heartache and struggle to peace and lasting happiness.
Here are Keryl’s key tips to living a happier life:
1 – Take the pressure off
If you’re feeling down, bitter, angry or whatever negative state you may be in, stop beating yourself up for feeling that way. Often the pressure we put on ourselves to feel differently than we do is worse than the negative feeling itself. Acknowledge that is how you feel right now without judging.
2 – Think in terms of what you want
Do a thought check. Do you spend the majority of your time thinking about what you don’t want and what’s wrong or what you do want? Start paying attention to what you focus on because what you focus on expands. Every time you catch yourself thinking about what is wrong with your life, stop. Interrupt your thought pattern and start asking “What do I want?” You will be amazed at what answers and opportunities present themselves when you begin asking the right questions. Lose the “Why me’s?” They serve no positive purpose.
3 – Make your happiness a priority
Studies show that every aspect of the human body functions better when we’re happy. What makes you happy? What do you enjoy? Start doing more of that without guilt. You were literally designed for happiness. If you feel the people around you don’t make your happiness important, it’s probably because YOU don’t place enough importance on it. Set some time aside for you and what you enjoy.
Bonus: The quickest way to feeling happier is to get out of your own head and do something for someone else. Whether it’s a simple compliment to a stranger, showing gratitude to others or doing something kind and unexpected for another person, the act of lifting up another is a powerful “happy pill” you carry with you at all times.

Following the release of her book, she and attorney Jonna Spilbor (regular legal analyst for Fox News and MSNBC), began a weekly talk-radio show called “Happy Hour” designed to entertain and dish advice for women. Their show airs Thursdays, 9-11pm EST on Mix 97.7FM in New York. See their website for more information: www.HappyBitches.com.
Soon after, Keryl (together with her girlfriend, Debbie Gioquindo) launched a hot new rose wine called Happy Bitch aimed squarely at females. It’s pink, it’s fun, it’s edgy. “It’s not just a wine. It’s a lifestyle. We women are notorious for living a life of sacrifice. It’s high-time we make our own happiness a higher priority.”
What to serve this with? The back label says it all “Pairs well with girlfriends and great memories.”
