Miss Teenage Canada began with a bang! Yesterday (August 7th, 2017) we had our sponsor party. The sponsor party was filled with tons of treats and goodies for the delegates of Miss Teenage Canada. You could feel the excitement in the room as all of the delegates gathered together for the first time.

The first step of the night was all of the delegates entering the room and being sat down for a speech by Michelle and Rob. The speech was about how the rest of the week would go and also answered any questions the delegates have.

After the speech, we were to pick up our sashes that designated our province, & our Miss Teenage Canada buttons. From there we were free to wander around the room and look at the different sponsors booths!

My first visit was to Nine West! Nine West is the official shoe sponsor for Miss Teenage Canada, and I don’t know how well all of you readers like shoes, but these shoes are so gorgeous!! The bonus side of things is that they are also super comfy and nice to walk in.

The next booth I went to was to Archer Dental! This booth is from a Toronto Dentist, Dr. Natalie Archer! It was awesome that we were able to have a ton of free dental supplies like toothpaste and toothbrushes. Dr. Archer was unable to make the pageant and each of the gifts were given out by Rob.

The next one I went to was golden Glamour Goddesses. This booth is a tanning booth that has all kinds of products that help to make your skin glow! Inside our goody bag we received, we have a soap scrub and lotion to help keep our skin smooth. Not only was it benefitical to our skin but it smelt nice too. We also had the option to book a spray tan at a discounted price!

After looking at all the amazing Tanning products and services, I went to Up To The Time. This booth had watches for us to try on and necklaces that they were giving us! The watches were super cute and fun to take pictures with.

Last but not least, Lily Liao from Street Chic came to visit us! She came to the party a tad bit later than all the other booths but she came bearing gifts! She brought each of us some earrings or a necklace to wear. Each piece of jewelry was completely unique and would be the perfect accessory for any outfit.

I look forward to putting on all of the items that the sponsors provided us with. Each of the items were products that I would use on a daily basis and be able to wear. The start of Miss Teenage Canada has gone really well. I can’t wait to see where the rest of this week takes me!

Hi everyone!

For our next blog assignment with Miss Teenage Canada, we were asked to submit a fashion piece to Street Chic Canada.

My Fashion outfit for Street Chic Canada.

This allowed delegates to have our work published in a magazine while helping to increase overall involvement. Due to this, I’ve recently had work published in Street Chic! Street Chic focuses on Canadian Fashion that each reader witnesses. It allows readers to submit articles to be published online with their view of the fashion industry and what Street fashion is in your area! For my blog submission, I focussed on two well known Kingston streets. The streets I chose to photograph are Ontario street and Montreal Street. I chose Ontario street by Lake Ontario as it is a popular area for teens in Kingston. Many people can be seen walking along the water on a nice day. This also happens to be an area where tons of fashion is present. During the year, Ontario street has many events that take place.  My next place was Montreal street. I chose this street as it leads to the heart of the downtown busy streets but also goes back to suburbs. I felt this most represented my style, bold, but with home grown roots.

In order to give you all a sneak peek of how my article went, I’ve included the beginning.

“Fashion-“A popular trend, especially in styles of dress and ornament or manners of behaviour” (By Oxford Dictionary)

Each place in the world has it’s own view of fashion. To some this might be wearing the most up to date and expensive clothing line or to others it could be following trends in society. Certain people enjoy standing out in the world of fashion and others choose to be more reserved! This varies from person to person, and from each age group. In Kingston, we have all of the above! Today, you’re getting my personal opinion on fashion. ”

In my article, I touched base on both men’s and women’s fashions. I felt that this allowed me to expand on both genders and the clothing that inspires us to improve confidence on a daily basis. For Men’s Fashion I chose the downtown area of Ontario street, the outfit that I had photographed was a relaxed but fashionable outfit with jeans and a graphic tee. The model I used, named Kyle, also had on a hat he purchased from lids and bracelets. These two small details really brought together his outfit. Kyle had told me that on a daily basis he does enjoy looking good, he says when he wears clothing that makes him feel confident and comfortable, it helps his day go into a good direction.

Kyle’s outfit for Street Chic.

Fashion itself is going to be different in every persons opinion. Like many topics, not everyone is going to agree, we won’t all have the same opinion. Yet, with Street Chic, we will be able to understand and read how others enjoy it. I think that’s why Street Chic is so fantastic. It really allows us to see other people’s views on Fashion in each part of society and with that we can grow our own taste of fashion. The one thing I hope to pass along as my message for fashion, is be yourself. Wear clothing that makes you feel confident and comfortable! At the end of the day, you are the only person you need to feel fashionable for.

If you would like to continue reading my submission for Street Chic. Please feel free to do so at StreetChic.ca and look under blog posts!

 

Thanks ,

Miss Teenage Frontenac.

Hello World!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! As apart of the Miss Teenage Canada pageant, one of our blog assignments is about our favourite place in our region we are reigning over!

Lucky for me, Kingston is a beautiful city and has many places to choose from! However, that being said, my favourite place in Kingston is Fort Henry. It has many great values that makes it fun for everyone. Every person who goes to Fort Henry is able to enjoy it.

Fort Henry sign that is at the entrance way of the historic site.

This is due to Fort Henry having historical value, being a place where community events take place, and there is gorgeous scenery.

To start off with, Fort Henry is a huge historical site. For those of you who don’t know, Fort Henry was built in the early 1800s for the war of 1812. After the war, the Fort had been damaged and a new one was built to replace the Fort.  It was originally Britain ownership but turned to Canada in the 1870s when Britain abandoned it. During its operation the Fort was used as protection over the waterways during trade and war. Due to it being located on Point Henry, it was seen as having the advantage of being able to see all waterways and the city. During its final years in use, the Fort would house prisoners of war. After many years, the Fort had restorations done again in the 1930s and was turned into the living museum we have today.

Many tourists and local people come to Kingston to roam through the museum and take in it’s sights.

As well as being a historical site, Fort Henry also has many community events. Fort Henry is a place where the community will gather for events such as concerts and/or seasonal festivals! Every month there is always something to experience at Fort Henry. For example, during the fall months close to Halloween, Fort Henry puts on an event called ‘Fort Fright’. This is when the Fort is transformed into being a haunted house and can be experienced up until Halloween. As well as this year we had Rascal Flatts in concert playing at Fort Henry on the big hill. These events bring Kingston together and let’s the city experience Fort Henry in a different light.

Finally, Fort Henry has gorgeous scenery. The Fort has a view of the entire city, apart of the reason it was built on Point Henry is due to the fact that it overlooks Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence river. I often find myself here looking at the view on a nice day. There are also benches that can be used to sit on to look at the surrounding scenery.

Just because I wanted to give you all the best experience and an idea of how beautiful the scenery truly is, I’ve also included a picture of the view Fort Henry gives at night.

Talk about jaw dropping! If you ever find yourself in Kingston, I highly suggest taking a visit to Fort Henry to experience the beauty and history.

As well as the above benefits, to go into Fort Henry, is very affordable. General Admission is a cost of $20 currently but varies on/If there is an event. If you would like to take a further look into Fort Henry, or purchase tickets to visit. Please feel free to visit : www.forthenry.com
Until next time,

Miss Teenage Frontenac.

Hi everyone! Thanks for visiting my blog!

I just wanted to give everyone an update as to what I’ve been up to as Miss Teenage Frontenac!

Earlier in the year I volunteered for an event called Princess Tea Party! This event brought the city of Kingston together in order to fundraise in support of the Children’s Wish Foundation.

Princess Tea Party event for Children’s Wish Foundation.

The event was a dance party for kids to come to dressed as Princesses. As well as the dance, there were also Disney Princesses that came to help create some magic!

The Disney Princesses, Prince & I all teamed up for a photo!

Just recently we had our Canada Day celebrations on July 1st. To give a bit of History, Kingston use to be the home of the first Canadian Prime Minister Sir John A. Macdonald. As for Canada’s 150th celebration, Kingston was also Canada’s first original capital city! This lead to many festivities to mark the 150th celebration! Including shutting down many busy streets in Kingston for the festival downtown! On Canada Day, as Miss Teenage Frontenac, I took to the city streets and joined the festivities downtown. This included bands playing, a carnival, Canadian foods, and of course, fireworks!

I hope each and every one of you are enjoying taking this journey with me. I look forward to competion in August and can’t wait to see where it takes me!

Thanks for reading,

Miss Teenage Frontenac, Sarah.

“Number twenty-four, Sarah”

Those were the words that quickly changed my life. From that moment on, I had a larger voice and a title to use to help promote subjects I feel strongly about.

Crowning.

The moment I was crowned as Miss Teenage Frontenac.

First off, WELCOME TO MY BLOG!! I’m extremely excited to be able to share what’s going on in my life as being Miss Teenage Frontenac. To start off with introducing myself, my name is Sarah. I am 18 years old and live in the beautiful city of Kingston, Ontario. At the time of the national competition I will be 19 years old. Since a young age I have loved to watch pageants and the positive impact they have on young women and the voice they use to help communities.

Wearing the crown home. First time being Miss Teenage Frontenac to the world!

A few hobbies that I enjoy would be; reading, painting, and sewing. These hobbies can be very relaxing and have always brought out the creativity in me. Aside from hobbies I mostly spend my time playing with my two dogs. One of which would be a Great Dane named Shadow,

and a Shar Pei -Lab named Leia.

Both dogs love to steal my bed at night!

Some goals I have would be; to become a physiotherapist and to help educate on depression as well as to be someone who can help those struggling through it. I hope to attend Queen’s university here in Kingston to complete my education and become a licensed physiotherapist. I feel this career would be very rewarding on an emotional and physical level. It would give me a positive experience with each success and strive me to learn to help patients on each recovery. My goal of depression would tie into my platform as Miss Teenage Frontenac.

My platform is to help educate as many people as possible on Depression. I want to be able to be someone that others can confide in about what they are going through. This also includes removing the stigma that comes along with this mental hardship. Depression is a massive problem that isn’t only for young people but in all people all over the world. The more people who we educate on this matter and discuss it with, the more people who can make a difference. So let’s make a difference together, not only in my community, but with everyone.

I can’t wait to see where this journey takes me over the next year, and I’m excited that everyone who reads my blog will be able to join this journey with me!
