Wow, wow, wow!! Last night, the 2017 Miss Teenage Canada sponsor party absolutely blew me away. It was a dream come true to be attending this party, and I loved getting to catch up with all the beautiful, hard-working, 2017 MTC delegates. After months of stalking each other on social media, we finally got to meet each other! I can now say I have friends from all across Canada.
We were welcomed to the beginning of this action-packed-week-to-be by Miss World Toronto 2017, who also competed in Miss Teenage Canada 6 years ago and was able to let us in on some insider information. Michelle Weswaldi, the director of Miss Teenage Canada, Miss World Canada and Top Model Search Canada congratulated us, and we also got to hear from one of my favourite people, Samantha Pierre, Miss Teenage Canada 2016.
Every girl got a new sash that just has the name of their province on it, so of course I was rocking my Ontario one that night as I visited each sponsor booth.
The first sponsor booth I had the opportunity to visit was Archer Dental. Archer Dental gave each girl a little gift bag full of good quality products to keep our teeth clean for this week. Nicole and I of course took this opportunity to take a selfie and show the world our smile!
Golden Glamour Goddesses sponsored us girls with a cute little container of body butter and some lovely soap. They also gave us a discount on spray tans so we would have the perfect glow for pageant week! I loved posing in a picture with one of the representatives and my gift bag <3
The cutest sponsor award has to go to Super Adorbs by far (the name says it all!). This sponsor had a table laid out with trendy accessories, one for each girl. I got a cute little pair of polka dot ears, because why not?!
I was so excited when I got to the party and saw the sign for Nine West, one of my favourite shoe companies! Nine West has sponsored every Miss Teenage Canada delegate with a pair of shoes for our swimwear competition, and has also invited all the crazy shoe addicts into their store where a special surprise awaits!! I can not contain my excitement.
I kept track of the time over the night with the lovely watch I got to try on and model from our amazing sponsor, Uptothetime. Uptothetime is offering a designer watch to the next Miss Teenage Canada, and after each girl tried on the watch, I don’t know who wouldn’t want it! More motivation to kill it at the pageant, am I right?
Wandering Minstrel Music School introduced a fun giveaway to us all last night, and it involved karaoke! Yes, you just read that right, a giveaway involving karaoke!! I was super pumped, since I have loved singing all my life. All we had to do was sing into an awesome golden microphone that records the song, post a video of us singing on instagram with the hashtag #mtcsongsolo and hope for the most likes! The competition closes on Wednesday and the winner will get to take home the microphone used to record the singing. The microphone can plug right into a mobile device!
I got to meet the editors of the magazine I wrote for, Street Chic!! It was really cool to be able to meet the coordinators of this fantastic resource for Canadians. They even gave us girls a lovely pair of earrings!
Overall, the first night of Miss Teenage Canada 2017 was unforgettable, and a huge part of that was because of our amazing sponsors. Thank you to each and everyone, I’m sure I speak with the rest of the girls when I say that I appreciate you all endlessly.
