4th October 2019 is World Smile Day and this October I want to challenge everyone to continue World Smile Day for a WHOLE week!

What is World Smile Day, you ask?


Harvey Ball – WWW.Worldsmileday.com

World Smile Day all began with one man, Harvey Ball. Harvey Ball is known well throughout the world as a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts who then went on to birth the smiley symbol in 1963.

That image went on to become one of the most recognisable symbol of good cheer and faith on the planet. Eventually Harvey become concerned about the over-commercialisation of his symbol, and how it’s original meaning/intent had become lost throughout constant repetition of the marketplace.

With those concerns in mind, he came up with the idea of World Smile Day. His intents were clear… He thought everyone should devote ONE day each year to smiles and acts of kindness throughout the world.

The smiley face holds no hate, no negativity, no animosity, no fear… and Harvey’s idea was that for one day each year, neither should we. He declared that the first Friday in October each year would hence forth be World Smile Day.

What can you do?


Good question. You can wear that amazing smile you keep hiding!

Smiling is simple way to spread happiness and cheer throughout the day. Smiles are contagious and by smiling at others around you, we all can share a positive impact on the world. So what are you waiting for? Start smiling!

Send a positive note or card to a friend/family member.

Sometimes the best way we can make someone smile is to send them a thoughtful card/ motivational note. Let the reason for someone’s smile be because of your kind words and thoughtful gestures.

Do a good deed.


Part of celebrating World Smile Day is doing something that elicits smiles through our actions. One of the most powerful ways of communication and a great way to spread those smiles is through our actions and doing something nice for others. Consider volunteering your time somewhere or maybe help a friend out with a favour no matter how big or small, or finally schedule some much needed family time! Our actions have always spoken louder than our words.

How will you make someone smile this World Smile Day?

I hope you all enjoyed reading through my post. It’s out on my blog a little later because someone forgot to schedule her finished posts… yup, that someone’s me. So I still have to find a little time to go through them and throw them on a schedule.

Hey, there! Firstly, I'd just like to start by thanking you for taking time out of your day/night to view my blog. Now you are probably wondering what kind of blog you have stumbled upon and I can tell you know my original intent was to create a lifestyle blog & that's what this is as well as one where I'll do book reviews & a little bit of everything really. My mind is full of so many ideas that I'm sure this blog is going to look/get confusing at times but I promise that I'm doing everything I can to make it look professional or at least like organized chaos. I'm also currently "writing" my childhood dream of becoming an author, and I'm at the moment writing a novel that I'm hoping will one day be published! I own three very adorable and troublesome cats and love taking nature walks with my significant other. I hope you choose to follow my blog and keep up to date with my new DIY makes, posts on how I make my candles and where you can purchase them.
