Snack Pack - Share a Smile!


Who loves to smile?  I think we all do.  There moments in life that can make you smile, big moments, small moments, and I think it is the everyday moments that are the best.  When my children smile because they have achieved their best on a test or laugh at a funny joke, those are the times when you can smile the most.  When you are proud of them.  There are other times where you can make someone else smile.  When you see someone on the street, smile and see what reaction you get.  Most people WILL smile back.  Enjoy life and the pleasures it brings, no matter how small.  Sometimes we do not stop and smell the flowers (or smile), but make it a part of your day from now on, and you will be happier!

Snack Pack Canada has started a campaign to do just that.  They have a goal to raise $20,000 for their Share a Smile Campaign for Food Banks Canada so that in the holiday season, there will be joy and love.  They do not want anyone to go hungry at this special time nor should they ever, but that is life.  They want you to share your smiles.  How can you help?  If you go to Facebook and “like” the page Snack Pack Canada, every time you go to their “Smile Page” and share a smile they will donate $1.00 to Food Banks Canada.  What a great company!  They also have a contest where you could win weekly prizes.  You can earn badges the more you send smiles or donate.  So I hope you will all share your smiles today and see how many we can get!

My review of Alegria Paloma Smokey Diamond Shoes


In October Rethink Breast Cancer had a contest where if you were the first one to correctly answer their question on Facebook that you could win a different prize each day.  Well usually I was away from my computer or working etc.. when they had the contest, but one day I just happened to remember about it when I was at home.  So I opened up their website so I would have it ready for when the question was posted.  Luckily I was one of the first to enter.  There was one person who answered before me but they got the question wrong (and I didn’t feel too bad for them because they had won from them a day earlier).  But I won the prize for that day!   I was quite happy! 

I have never had a pair of Mary Jane shoes before, and these are the Alegria Paloma Smokey Diamond.  They retail for about $120 in the store.  But they have good reviews and are supposed to be comfortable and great for your feet.  I only received them today by courier, and so far I love them.  They indeed are very comfortable and I know they will be great for your feet, plus they are a neat looking pair of shoes.  I think I will become addicted to these types of shoes only having had this pair for a short while.  They definitely seem worth the money to me if you want a nice good quality pair of shoes.  And they look nice to boot (no pun intended lol) with nice decorative butterflies on them.  You can find them at  So thank you Rethink Breast Cancer for a great cause and a great pair of shoes!
