This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Mrs. Smith's for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

People were truly busy every holiday. They were preparing foods, desserts, and menus for the family. They even send greeting cards to the love ones! In the modern world, sending greeting cards can now be done through the internet via the e-cards. But, can we prepare our favorite foods at the same time sending e-cards?! Well, that's the job for Mrs. Smith's!

This holiday season keep in touch with friends and family with the Mrs. Smith’s Holiday microsite where you can create and send holiday e-cards. Best part is that there is also a free coupon for the sender and receiver of the e-card AND a portion of all sales of Mrs. Smith’s pies will be donated to Operation Homefront! Mrs. Smith’s will be donating a $1 for every Mrs. Smith’s pie purchased during November and December. They will also be providing pies to Operation Homefront for Thanksgiving as well!


The good thing is that, you already sent a holiday e-card at the same time able to send donation to the Operation Homefront! It's truly a great help to the needy this holiday, the season of love!



I've tried using the microsite and it truly gives me an awesome experience! Using the microsite gives me a real fulfillment! It even makes my family happy when I sent an e-card using the microsite!  For me, the feature of the site I especially like is the feature where I can send greeting cards to my friends and family!

Mrs. Smith’s pies come in different varieties! But for me, the flavor I love is the Apple Pie! This Apple Pie is the one I will bring as a gift to my love one or bring over for a meal!

Here is the photo of the Mrs. Smith's pie which I love most:

So what are you waiting for? Use the microsite and send out e-cards to your friends and family this holiday season! Also, remember that that $1 donation will be made to Operation Homefront for every Mrs. Smith’s pie sold in November and December. Mrs. Smith’s will also provide pies to Opeartion Homefront for Thanksgiving.

Let's spread love this holiday! And this makes possible via Mrs. Smith's generosity!

After the “Walang Hanggan” infinity ring comes another piece of jewelry called the “La Promesse”, inspired by ABS-CBN’s primetime hit, “A Beautiful Affair”.

Crafted by Karat World, the “La Promesse” is a sterling silver bracelet that celebrates the romance between on-screen tandem John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo. The elegant jewelry plays an integral role in the drama, both as a part of the plot and as a symbol of true love.

The La Promesse symbolizes Leon’s (Cruz) vow to win Genevieve’s (Alonzo) heart anew after the lovers were separated by circumstance and tradition. In “A Beautiful Affair”, Leon purchased the piece in Europe before leaving for the Philippines in high hopes that he’ll find Genevieve to rekindle their love.

Designed with a lock and key, the bracelet is a visual metaphor for how the beauty of commitment opens the doors for genuine, complete, and never-ending love. It features a clasp shaped like a lock with a heart-shaped hole at its center. At the other end of the bracelet is a key, which enters the clasp and closes the loop.

“The padlock is the defining feature of La Promesse,” says Anna Rivera, Executive Producer of “A Beautiful Affair”. “It’s a powerful symbol of commitment and the resolve to fulfill a promise to the love of one’s life.”

As Leon and Genevieve go on their paths to fulfill their romantic destinies, fans of the show can also pursue their own vows of commitment by availing of La Promesse at Karat World. The bracelet will be offered at Karat World branches nationwide.

“A Beautiful Affair”, the first television show to star the John Lloyd-Bea love team since 2008’s I Love Betty La Fea, airs week nights on ABS-CBN.(

Like Kris, AiAi is also proud of "Sisterakas" being a family-oriented film. "Although dedicated mother pa rin ang role ko dito, tungkol sa mag-sisters ang kwento. So first time ko magkakapelikulang tungkol sa magkapatid," she said. "Sa panahon ngayon, the best thing to share is love. At ngayong Pasko, napakasaya na tumatawa tayo and at the same time puno ng pagmamahal ang nararamdaman natin."

Direk Wenn, on the other hand, assured that moviegoers who will see “Sisterakas” will laugh out loud from start to finish. "Ngayon ka lang makakakita ng ganitong klaseng pelikula at ng ganitong klaseng tema ngayong Pasko," said the director. "For the spirit of Christmas, wag muna nating problemahin ang mundo. Humalakhak muna tayo kasi kaarawan ng Diyos. Magandang regalo 'yung mapatawa mo ang mga mahal mo sa buhay."

Aside from Vice, Kris and AiAi, "Sisterakas" will also feature Kapamilya child wonder Xyriel Manabat and the sensational teen stars Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla.

Don’t miss the unkabogable Christmas gift of Star Cinema and Viva Films that will bring non-stop laughter to Filipino families nationwide, "Sisterakas," which will hit cinemas on December 25.(
