After being absent from your lives for the past two weeks, I suppose a blog post updating you on my recent adventures would be appropriate…
With that being said, HAPPY THURSDAY everyone!
Thursday’s are slowly becoming my favourite day of the week for MANY reasons:
- Thursday’s are my ‘me’ days. This mean’s I am free to work out at my own leisure, read a book or catch up on the newest episodes of my favourite TV show (Glee… even though it’s currently over 🙁 or Dragon’s Den)
- My sister and I always have a date night on Thursday’s. This is when we go to our favourite local salad bar for dinner and run errands together (by errands, I usually mean go shopping)
- Most importantly, I get to write a blog post about my most recent endeavours and share them with all of you! I absolutely love the idea of having a blog because it gives me an opportunity to reflect on all of these fun new experiences and share them with others.
So being that I love Thursday’s so much, now seems like the perfect time to share some recent updates with you…
As you all know, I am hosting a gala in support of Free The Children in June. This event will not only raise awareness, but also raise a lot of money that will be put towards initiatives such as building wells or providing children over seas with an education. Without the support of local businesses, this event would not be possible. It is amazing to see how generous and supportive the people of my community actually are.
I would like to extend a personal thank you to…
Bodies By Design Personal Training for the 6 membership packages that will be put towards the evenings raffle
WildCard Entertainment for the tickets, casino tables, silent auction and more
Number One Events and Decor for the centre pieces and decorations
Totera Fine Foods for the raffle contribution
Finch Centre Jewellers for the raffle contribution
Yo Amo Tacos Bar ‘n Grill Woodbridge for the raffle contribution
And St. Phillips Fine Bakery in Woodbridge for the raffle contribution
If you or someone you know would like to contribute to this nights event OR would like to attend this event on June 19th @ 7pm in Woodbridge, Ontario please contact me through email.
I’ve also had the opportunity to take some official photo’s in my sash and crown thanks to another wonderful sponsor, Sweetart Images By Sonia Mederios. Photographer Sonia never fails to amaze me with her creativity and professionalism. She truly does make you feel comfortable while on set and allows you to have fun too! Her outstanding work keeps me going back every season.
My hair and makeup for the day was also sponsored by Creatively Beautiful Salon. As a client of this salon for many years, I can honestly say that I have never left disappointed. Without even knowing what look I am seeking that day, the stylists and artists never fail to amaze me. I wouldn’t rather go anywhere else!
Lastly, two of the three outfits I wore were sponsored by Number One Boutique in Woodbridge. Number One Boutique is a trendy little store that will surely keep you up to date on the latest fashions. The staff are super helpful and are basically guru’s when it comes to fashion. I’m pleased to announce that they will also be providing me with a wardrobe for Nationals week in August.
I am so thankful to be surrounded by such supportive individuals who are helping me achieve my goal of winning Miss Teenage Canada. Without this constant support and generosity, I certainly would not be where I am today. So thank you to all of the businesses listed above and to you, my readers, for always keeping me motivated.
Check back next Thursday when I’ll be talking about an event I’ll be at this weekend.
