Hello,

Amanda Poulin at Exposure photography was absolutely amazing. She was absolutely wonderful. I had such a fun time during this photoshoot and couldn’t have asked for a better photo sponsor. The pictures turned out so beautiful and I am so thrilled with how they turned out.

Hello,

Yesterday I attended the big dreams brunch put on by the princess shop. This organization is one that has become so close to my heart. I have been volunteering there for three years and I never want to leave.

The princess shop is an non-profit organization that provides grad dresses for underprivileged female identifying students. They do graduates hair, makeup and photos  for their special day. Graduation is an important part of every students life. It is the ending of one chapter and the beginning of another. Many students never thought they would make it to graduation after facing many obstacles in life. Some became parents, others were facing difficulties at home. Each one determined to change their life and become successful.

I have been in many dress appointments and if your like me you know there’s a special moment in every appointment when the graduate picks their dress. The curtains open and if you look closely you can see this special look on their face. In this split second the graduate realizes that this is their dress and that all they’ve worked hard for was worth it. They are leaving behind their childhood and moving onto the unknown. Imagine this moment for a graduate who never thought they would make it to their graduation. There is nothing better than getting to see this moment every time I walk in to help at the princess shop. This split second makes volunteering worth it. There is no better feeling than getting to help make this moment happen.

Swimming in dresses at the princess shop!

The big dreams brunch fund raiser provided the princess shop with funding to make everything they do possible. I met Miss Native American Globe while I was there. She was absolutely gorgeous and her crown was amazing.

The food was so delicious and the entertainment was amazing. They had Scott’s flyer’s preforming. They are an acrobatics yoga group that was incredible to watch. They were lifting each other and throwing each other around. It was amazing to watch.

I want to say a huge thank you to the princess shop for all the work they do within  our community. They are always doing everything they can for every graduate. They are truly such a special organization that I can’t say enough good things about.

Much Love, Miss Teen Maddy!

Hello,

My name is Madison and in August I was crowned Miss Teenage Saskatchewan 2015. I have been busy with events since day one. I love being involved in my community. To introduce myself and let you guys know a little bit about me here are 8 fun facts about me.

  1. I was Miss Teenage Central Saskatchewan in 2015. I learned so many amazing things during my year of reign. I couldn’t help but come back for another year of working within my community. I met so many amazing people that will forever be a part of my life.                                                
  2. Family comes first for me. I have an older sister and younger brother. I have a very close relationship with both my siblings. They are a huge part of my support system and are always there for me whenever I need. My parents are a wonderful example of the kind of person I want to become. My family is always there to straighten my crown when it is just not quite right. 
  3. When I was in grade 8 I was in an outdoor education program. I got the opportunity to be in charge of my education. This hands on program taught me so much and helped shape me into the person I am today.
  4. I play football. I was the quarterback and team captain of my high school womens flag football team for four years. I love going out and getting the chance to show my competitive side. It always makes people laugh how I can be aggressive on the football field but delicate and beautiful on stage.
  5. I have tried on over 500 dresses. Through my modeling and pageant life I have tried on over 500 dresses. Huge thanks goes out to Exquisite fashions and bridal for being my dress sponsor and providing me with my competition gowns.
  6. I volunteer regularly with the princess shop. Stay tuned for a special about them and all they do!
  7. I played volleyball for 8 years of my life. Sports have always been a huge part of my life. I was offered scholarships to various schools in Canada and the United States. Unfortunately medically I am unable to go.
  8. I have two dogs. They are both so adorable and are always there to cuddle. They bring a whole lot of excitement and love to our family.

Now that you know a little bit about me I hope you will continue to read my posts and follow my adventure.

As a candidate and a woman, fashion is important. Fashion is everywhere and is now part of our lives. Part of Miss Teenage Canada is to show our capabilities in showing skills in terms of fashion. Last July 26th 2017, I gathered my friends for a photo shoot. As teenagers we had our group effort to show what our little town has. Fashion is art and my idea for this task is to show the real meaning of fashion. Fashion doesn’t only matters on the price but its quality; not specifically defined by its style but most especially the confidence in bringing up the style. Everywhere you go, fashion is always involved. In this task, I want to show the different kinds of fashion in different areas in life.

At work, you can have the look of a social ready person as well as showing the inner professionalism you have. Always make sure to express your thoughts and feeling on your outfit. I have two kinds of professional look to show: The
VIP Professional look and the sociable professional look.

VIP professional look is a formal look. It is good for meetings, formal events, etc. Kathleen is portraying the look of a VIP one. She is wearing a white lacy fit top matched with a pinstriped navy pencil skirt. Accessories should match your outfit and event you’re up to. A good accessories for this are the pearls, diamonds, etc that are simple and elegant. On the other hand, if you feel to socialize people, Carla is portraying for that feeling. She is wearing a black jumpsuit matched with a wedge beige sandal. Note: If you’re wearing a dark color for your top or even a a dark color suit just like Carla, it is good to wear something lighter color for your footwear to avoid dullness.

DENIM means Dauntless, Easy, Never-failing, Incandescent, and Mannerly. If you feel those things, Denim is good for you. For me, denim is the easiest fashion in this world. It is always trendy and has millions of characteristics. In this blog, we are portraying the three kinds of Denim look: the outgoing, the adventurer and the sweet-sassy look.

 

The outgoing denim look simply means denim pants. What’s good with denim is that it always fits wherever and whenever you want. Trixie is wearing a denim hipster pants, matched with a black sleeveless fitted top and a beige sandal. She also added a denim jacket that fits to her pants. For adventurer, it is nearly the same with the outgoing look however, this kind of look always matches with sunglasses. For sweet and sassy, skirt is a good way to answer for that. It shows some skin which connects with the sassy feeling yet with sophistication.

 

Summer is the most awaited season of the year. Aside from its calming weather, it also brings the easiest fashions of all. Summer clothes makes everything looks fresher, just like Jobelle wearing her dark green off-shoulders top matched with a black short. For footwear, she had white flats, and to sum up the package for summer, sun glass from coach is her answer.

Good thing in fashion industry is it’s limitless, that even in sports, there is fashion. Sweat is an addition factor in fashion. How? It makes u look fiercer. In sportswear do not forget to wear something flexible and comfortable. Kathleen and I are portraying samples in sportswear.

Kathleen is wearing a Nike Sports bra matched with Nike dry fit shorts and a black Nike Runners. To cover up, she used a Pink Neon Workout Vest. Another style is wearing a Sports bra but instead of shorts, I wear the New Balance leggings matched with Adidas crop top sweater and black Under Armour Runner Shoes.

The most important thing in fashion is how you feel and carry yourself. It is not always about style; instead it is about something you wear that makes you happy and satisfied.

Before I end this blog, I just wanted to thank #MTC2017 for this opportunity. It opens a chance for us, as teenagers, to show our skills in fashion. To Rob Campbell and Lily Liao for reviewing and making our blog better. To my friends and family for supporting me in this task, and most especially to God for making this task successful.

God bless us all and More power!

According to Stephen Leacock, the Lord said “let there be wheat” and Saskatchewan was born. Interesting isn’t it? But aside from being the world’s largest exporter of crops, Saskatchewan has also lots of marvelous places that are worth visiting for. One of these is the Prairie Lily Riverboat Cruise, a tourist attraction in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Cruising with Prairie Lily provides relaxation and will let you see the natural beauty of Meewasin Valley, taste the Saskatchewan’s pride cuisines and enjoying the scenic views while learning some heritage of the city.

The Prairie Lily Riverboat Cruise opens at 10 am to 5 pm. The Prairie Lily is the perfect option for exclusive events, entertaining, meetings, and private functions. As of May 2017, they started welcoming guests to host their corporate or special events. It provides a dockside meeting space that can be added on either regular or exclusive tours; for charter menus, the staffs are willing to offer catering menu for their guests to select. The ship has 700 square feet on the main, interior deck and another 700 on the canopy covered second level. It is equipped with a bar, heating and air conditionings, two washrooms, a serving galley and a forward gangway that can be used to load or unload passengers from the front. They have different kinds of cruises that will surely fit to your dream experience on the cruise and budget. In Sightseeing Cruise you would definitely enjoy the cruise through the heart of Saskatoon on the South of Saskatchewan River. Captain’s Brunch Cruise for Sunday mornings, Dinner cruise to enjoy our very popular and leisurely Chef’s Choice dinner and experience the beauty of our river and riverbank with our house caterer, Chef Kevin from Flavours Catering. Big Sky Sunset Cruise for Friday and Saturday evenings; Tasting and Specialty Cruise for an experience of sailing with a Sommelier, and lastly, The Cruisin’ to Shakespeare which you would enjoy some stage performances of Twelfth Night and Richard III.

The Prairie Lily Riverboat Cruise is my top chosen place in Saskatchewan. My experience was superb and it’s a world-class experience to remember. I tried it once and it was on one of my best friends’ birthday party. I’ve been to some party boats before and Prairie Lily is my most favorite so far. Each view was awesome and it feels more exciting as you see people riding jet skis around you and doing some tricks. Aside from the fun, staffs are very friendly and their service was really perfect. Before our departure, they did some announcements and reminders for safety purposes. They also make sure that everyone is on their best experience and always feels comfortable throughout the cruising. One interesting thing is that the captain socializes to his passengers and my experience with him was a witty one. He suggested the best spot at the cruise where I can have my “#socialmedia-worthy” pictures. Apart from food and staffs, their facilities were very neat and clean, plus factor its fresh lavender fragrance. My friends and I enjoyed the splendid experience in the cruise even though the weather is chilling that day and we’re expecting a sunset, but still it is the best night of our lives that we’ll remember and treasure for the rest of our lives.

     

If you’re about to visit Saskatchewan and wonder what places to visit, I’ll suggest to put The Prairie Lily Riverboat Cruise on your list. It’s worth to visit if you want short paradise-feeling-of-relaxation experience together with your loved ones.
