Today consisted of some touring around Toronto! I even got some really nice photos of the CN tower! For breakfast, we ate at Eggilicious, which is a Canadian restaurant!
This photo was taken before saying our goodbyes after visiting the Nuvango store & studio! Was an awesome tour of the building and changed my view on the fashion industry. After the tour, we tried on Nuvango clothing and got to strike many poses in a photo shoot !
I was also very surprised to find out, this amazing studio was managed by a brilliant Nova Scotian, Dawn Laing!
Dawn is a sweet heart! She gave me her contact information and offered to send me Nuvango clothes once I return home as well as a $50 gift card for there!!
I highly recommend you go visit them and see their retro designed building, and clothing at 2738 Dundas St. West. Besides, you might as well go see their adorable studio dog!! He’s so cute and super lovable !
Here are photos from the photo shoot where the girls and I are decked out in our Nuvango clothing!
All their clothing can be found on their website at https://www.nuvango.com/
My own personal tourist photo’s !!!
Then we went to The Bata Shop Museum! Talk about fascinating!
Parrboro, NS is where I call home. It is known for it’s record of high tides, beautiful islands and low bush blueberry picking.
Here are some examples of the beautiful landscapes that I live by:
Representing this province allowed me to travel and see all the great tourist attractions. Since I have been just about everywhere, here is a list I put together of the top five best things to see and do in Nova Scotia!
Drive Along The Cabot Trail
Tour The Alexander Graham Bell Museum
Stop into the impressive museum honouring telephone inventor Alexander Graham Bell, also in Cape Breton.
3. The Fortress of Louisbourg
Learn about history and see where they fought, back in the day.
4. Explore the city of Halifax
5. Peggy’s Cove lighthouse
Go check it out! Has the best sea food chowder I have ever eaten!
Today, I had to be ready by 8 am. The getting ready consisted of just slipping on some leggings and a baggy t-shirt because we got makeup artists and hair experts to get us all ready for the photo shoot and video interview!
I have never felt more like a princess until today with this title. It was the first time, I had my makeup professionally done and I loved the result!
Below are some photo’s from getting ready.
After the video taping and pictures, we had a very long rehearsal in heels! We got to meet, two of choreographers that we will be working with all week and found out what our dance song is.
Today was an amazing day! Which insures me that it will be an unforgettable week here in Toronto! First, I got the chance to fly in with a fellow title holder, Miss Teenage New Brunswick! It was about a two hour flight from Moncton, NB to Toronto, ON.
As soon as we arrived to the hotel, we all went into a room to make friends and meet and greet each other! So far, I have already met so many sweet girls and am making immediate best friends.
After meeting all the girls, I was fully emerged into a room full of sponsors and received many awesome gifts!
First of all, I am in love with my new Nuvango t-shirt!! There was a table set up,full of t-shirts and leggings covered in colourful designs, paintings and artwork! I learned Nuvango collaborates with artists from around the world to design incredible apparel & accessories featuring their original artwork. All their great clothing is made in their studio factory right here in Toronto, Canada. They even have an art gallery and retail store as well, so if you buy their products, you can be a walking piece of art.
Make sure to check out their website, Facebook Twitter and Instagram, it will all be posted by their logos at the bottom of this page!
Golden Glamour Goddesses
Next, I walked up to the Golden Glamour Goddesses (GGG) table to see more of their products. They had on the table, after tanning cream and tanning solution. I got the chance to sign up for eye lash extensions or to be spray tanned. I signed up for the eye lash extensions! I can’t wait to try their products out!
The next awesome gift I received was a pair of sunglasses from V.P.I eye wear. If you like the shades, i’m wearing. You can get the same pair off their website at https://www.vpicanada.ca/SUNGLASSES/round-framed-vintage-style-sunglasses-3904/. He informed me, currently all their sale items range from $2.80-$20.00!!!! I recommend you get a pair, and we can be styling together!
Sweets Canada – Chocolates
I SCREAM, WE SCREAM, WE ALL SCREAM FOR CHOCOLATE!!!!!!! That’s right, I have changed up the saying because one if the tables had Sweets Canada quality chocolate! I received Dark Chocolate with edible Jasmine Petals. I love trying new things and this style of chocolate was definitely a new experience for me! It made me feel healthy eating flower pedals in my chocolate but it also gave a richness to the chocolate.
I was very surprised to find out this style of chocolates are made by hand.
Played Mini Putt and most of been beginners luck because I got it in on my first try! #skilledmissteenagenovascotia Everyone who made it through the first putt, had a second competition. Sadly, I didn’t make the cut for the second round but now I know where to go for couching. If you see the sign behind me it says “Bradlee Ryall” which is a school where you can get golf lessons, which I might just have to look into ! Hahaha
I love Archery!! – Archers Arena
I just joined Fundy Shore Archery Club this year, because my family is big into hunting and I wanted to try something new. I have been in love with this sport, ever since! My coach is great and there are not a whole lot of students in the club so you really get one on one time and don’t have to wait long to shoot!
Speaking about my love of archery, I was even considering doing it for my talent!
Then during the party, I noticed their was a bow in the room so my first instinct was to go to it and get a picture!
I heard we were going to be touring Toronto! I love travelling so that was defiantly going to be the highlight of my week. Once they told us, we were going to be stopping by the Archers Arena sometime this week, I was and still am astatic! It’s not the exact same as professional archery though. On the terms of the arrow instead of a sharp dangerous point, there is a marshmallow like sponge that keeps it from hurting others when you fire them off at each other in a room!
Welcome gifts and essentials from the Miss Teenage Canada team!
Saving the best for last. Miss Teenage Canada provided me with a new sash, bathing suit heals, hat and t-shirt. No party is complete without cake and pizza! That is exactly what we had.
I was so excited when I found out we were receiving our bathing suit heels that night, because I couldn’t wait to wear them to rehearsal and get use to them! I tried them on as soon as we got to the room and instantly fell in love with them! <3 If you like the ones in the photo, they are from Qupid! Be sure to check them out! Get the same pair and we can be twinning!
Thanks to all the sponsors: Nuvango,Q’Licious Chocolates, Storia PR, Goldenglamour GG, HashtagioSocial, Bradlee Ryall Golf Enterprises Inc., Archers Arena, and VPI Canada Limited for all the goodies, and a great time at the Welcome Party!

Was a great crowd! I was honoured to hear people clapping as we passed them for congratulating me for receiving this title and to hear little girls voices saying, “you’re so pretty”.
Such a beautiful community. I could not have asked for better hospitality.
Huge thank you to Sobeys for letting me use your store to fundraise and the community of Pictou for really showing me your hearts and making a difference today!
The photo on the left shows the set up of my table and the beautiful, 2016 Queen Of The Sea. Here, we had a successful meet and greet as well as sold tickets on a frame full of gift cards in efforts to fundraise for Free The Children!
It was a busy day! Live performances and a Sobey’s staff barbecue for the SPCA was just around the corner outside the doors.
Lots of photo’s were taken! Definitely another unforgettable day as Miss Teenage Nova Scotia!
This lady I’m standing with in this photo, is absolutely brilliant! She worked for the United Nations for most of her life. Her experiences were inspiring. She has saved and brought peace to many lives and countries.
She shared her inspiring experiences and was very encouraging towards me being in this pageant! It’s people like her that will push me to succeed as I compete for the title Miss Teenage Canada!
When I have the crown on my head, I am no longer Katie, I am seen as a princess that everyone wants a picture with! Here are some photo’s with the kids:
Every year the organisers of the Pictou Lobster Carnival put on a competitive Pageant for the title, Queen Of The Sea. The girl, who is crowned, receives $500 dollars that they can put towards their education and much more. They get marked on criteria, such as congeniality, best dress, fitness ect.
Here are some of the individual princesses!
Thank you Pictou County for letting me help reward these beautiful girls that have worked so hard over the past few months! They sounded like they really deserved their sashes & bouquet of roses.
