Wow, what a day! Day 3 was packed full of excitement from start to finish- and when I say start, I mean 5am… Yup, that’s right; 5am! The ladies had to be ready to go at 5am, so most of us woke up at 3 or 4am to do our hair and makeup.
Why? Because the Miss Teenage Canada candidates were appearing live on Breakfast TV! We traveled to downtown Toronto, to the set of BTV and got to watch the hosts talk about everything from gadgets to Rob Ford 😉 And then it was our turn! It was so exciting to be on live television- I made sure to look my best and give a great smile 😀 (Check out the segment here!)
After BTV, we traveled to High Park to eat a delicious breakfast prepared for us by the Grenadier Cafe! It definitely fueled us for the day! Soon enough, it was go go go again! We went back to our hotel, where it was time for eve more fun- Schwarzkopf Professional Canada prepared a hair tutorial for us, where we got to learn different quick, easy, but very cute hairstyles. They gave us great tips and tricks too! We then had a hairstyle challenge that was a lot of fun 🙂 Check them out on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
Lunch was sponsored by Panera Bread (my favourite)! Thanks to Panera Bread for my delicious Sierra Turkey sandwich and my strawberry, pecan, chicken and poppy seed salad- delicious!
After having a small break in our hotel rooms (yay for this!), we were out and about again! We went to one of my favourite malls- Yorkdale Mall! We got a lot of stares…who wouldn’t stare with 60 beautiful Canadian teen queens walking down the mall?!
We were each given a $25 gift card to Bench, so all the girls went wild! What can we say, we love shopping! Bench was so kind in sponsoring us for this and I’m so happy with my purchase! I bought a dark grey tank top with the Bench logo on it that’s going to be perfect for my workouts 🙂 We took Polaroid photos, danced to their awesome store playlist, took photos with many people (fans? ;)) at the mall, and had a great time! Thanks again to Bench!
Yorkdale Mall was kind enough to give each of us a VIP package for us, filled with a $10 gift card to the mall, and a discount card to select stores! Now I feel like royalty 😉 We used the gift card to buy some yummy food at the food court (#dineon3) and after taking some more photos and talking to our “fans,” we were headed back to the hotel for….rehearsal!
What can I say about rehearsal? Best moment of the day for me! Our choreographer Shawn definitely knows what he’s doing; he’s preparing us, and he’s preparing us well! We practices our stances, walking, and started learning an practicing our opening dance!! I love the song we’re dancing to- I couldn’t stop singing along and shaking my hips! The dance is truly amazing and I can’t wait to see it all played out on the stage during final night 🙂 Though my heels were on the whole time (gotta give it my 100%!), and my feet are so sore but it was worth it!
But lucky us, our Hi-Tec Shoes arrived! Thank you once again to Hi-Tec Footwear for sponsoring us with these adorable and super comfy shoes! The shoes will definitely give my feet a break from the heels haha!
What a day! Stay tuned for more of my Miss Teenage Canada adventures!
