This morning was wonderful because we actually got to sleep in! We also got breakfast delivered to our rooms, which was pancakes. After breakfast we had a long day of rehearsals starting at 10:30am until 3:00pm. We have the opening dance and swim suit dance completed and we ran through the entire show. After rehearsals the makeup and hair team from Motive Cosmetics arrived. I loved how they did my hair and makeup and it was such a fun time!

Next we got our bathing suits and shoes. I love my bathing suit and I can’t wait to wear it after this pageant. Then we had to go get everything ready for the preliminaries.

At the the preliminaries it started off with bathing suit. I very nervous beforehand, but once I went out on the runway I had so much fun! Then I changed into my evening gown and walked the runway again. I loved seeing all the different girls in their gorgeous evening gowns. I think that I did well in preliminaries and I am so exited for finals night!

Today was a great day. We started off the day by going out for breakfast then came back to the hotel to start rehearsals. First we all worked on our swimwear and evening gown walks with Jillian Martin (Miss Teenage Canada 2013) and our chaperone Courtney. They gave us all some wonderful tips and I am already feeling more confident for preliminaries tomorrow night. Next Shawn came in and we started working on our awesome opening number dance.

After rehearsals we all went up to our rooms and got ready to go to the Medieval times for supper. Medieval times was so cool! We all sat down in a big stadium with comfy chairs and tables. In the middle of the stadium there were horses and riders battling. It was a role play of knights and kings in the Medieval times. I was on the red side so I cheered loud for the red Rider and horse who ended up winning! Also at the Medieval Times, they serve you so many amazing meals but, you are not aloud to use utensils. You have to eat everything with only your hands. They gave us some really tasty soup, a chicken leg, some a ribs, some garlic bread, a potato and a really great desert.

After Medieval times, we all got back on the bus and had a small party on the bus singing to the radio. Lastly we got back to our hotels and went to bed.

Today we got to start the day off a little bit later by getting up at 5:30am (that’s actually a fair time for us delegates) and we ate some breakfast. We got the amazing opportunity to appear on Global TV locally and nationally! What happened on the show was there were two bowls: one filled with all the delegates names and one filled with different questions. Jillian Martin (Miss Teen Canada 2013) picked out some names out of a bowl and the delegate had to answer a question live. Although I was not picked to answer a question, it was such a great experience and I was glad it was nationally so my family and friends could watch back in Regina.

After global TV we got to go to the CN Tower! It was so cool to go all the way up to the top of one of the worlds tallest building! We got to look out at the beautiful view of the city and walk on the glass floor. It was so much fun.

 

Later we arrived at the Eaton Centre mall. It was huge! there were so many amazing stores and they were kind enough to give us all 10 dollar gift cards for our dinner. When we walked into the mall there were people everywhere taking pictures and videos of us. Again I felt like such a celebrity and was such a cool and humbling experience.

Finally, we arrived back at the hotel for rehearsals for the final show. I am so exited to learn more of the dances and experience finals night!

This morning was a painfully early morning. I was up at 4:00am and had to be on the bus by 5:00 am. Although it was early, we got to go to Breakfast TV! It was so much fun. It was so interesting to be behind the scenes of the show and it was so cool to be on it live. After we were finished with Breakfast TV, we went back to the hotel to watch a hair tutorial by Schwarzkopf Professional. They taught us some really easy but beautiful hair styles and, afterwards we had a competition on who could make the best bun and braid. We also all got gift bags from them with some of their products.

Once we were finished with the hair tutorial, we went to the Yorkdale Shopping mall. It was so crazy! When we al walked ingot he mall people started taking our photo’s and staring at us, I felt like a celebrity! We all went to Bench and they gave us all a 25 dollar gift card for their store. It was so much fun and they were so nice to sponsor us.

Next we went to the food court to eat supper. The Yorkdale mall also gave us 10 dollar gift cards for the food court. Last on our schedule was a two hour rehearsal with Shawn the choreographer. This was a tiring but very eventful day.

Today was day 2 at the Miss Teenage Canada pageant week. The day started off with everyone getting their hair and makeup professionally done by Motives by Loren Ridinger. It was so much fun and I loved my hair and makeup!

After hair and makeup we had to get dressed in our photo shoot dress and eat some breakfast. My name was called close to last so I didn’t start my photo shoot until around 4:00pm but, it was so much fun. After the photo shoot I had my video shoot then my interview. Interview is very important because it is worth 20% of my overall mark. After everything was done it was about 8:00pm. This was an incredibly long and tiring but, amazing day!

Today was officially day one of pageant week! My flight was scheduled to leave at 5:20am so I was up very early. Unfortunately there was a lack of people working at the check in desk at the airport and we ended up waiting in line for about an hour. Right as it was our turn it was announced that I, and about 10 other people missed our flight. I was very disappointed as the only other flight going to Toronto would land at 8:30pm, which meant I would miss the big welcome party for all the delegates and  learning about our wonderful sponsors for the pageant this year. Some of the amazing sponsors for Miss Teenage Canada are Wright Spa, Hi-Tec Shoes, Golden Glamour Goddesses, and Motives by Loren Ridinger.

Although I was disappointed about missing the welcome party, I tried to look on the positive side. We ended up flying in the opposite direction of Toronto, which was Edmonton. We had a two hour layover then finally boarded the plane for Toronto! When I got to the hotel I met one of the pageant director’s, Michelle Weswaldi and my chaperon. I was then taken up to my room and met my roommate. I am so exited for tomorrow and I am so grateful to be competing in this pageant all week.
