So How does one get ready for the Miss Teenage Canada Pageant coming up in August?!! Read on for a sneak peek!!!

In today’s Blog I’ll be sharing my top Healthy Eating Tips, Fitness Tips, Beauty tips and much more…!!!

Here are my Top 5 Beauty Inside tips – that will not only make you feel more beautiful – but will make your inner beauty, both your mind and your body – just shine!

 

With today’s blog I hope to inspire everyone to get off your couch, get on your feet and have some fun getting fit!

Healthy Eating!

Vegetables, Fruits, & Water! = Better Skin on the outside and a healthy, strong mind on the inside!

We’ve all heard the saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” or “Eat your Vegetables”! But why is it so important to eat these foods?

Below are my Top Fruits & Veggies – I make sure to include these in my weekly healthy eating plans.

  • Apples! – Rich in vitamin C, they create collagen which helps healing and promotes healthy skin. Apples also have small amounts of skin-brightening vitamin A, which helps to build healthy skin. (and yes, eat the peel!)
  • Blueberries – Great for your skin and known for its high levels of antioxidants that shield your skin against harmful free radicals that can damage the collagen that keeps your skin firm.
  • Strawberries – They have biotin which helps build strong hair and nails. Strawberries also help brighten up dull skin and improve your complexion. They also work as a natural exfoliate for your skin – helping remove dead skin cells and help repair and nourish skin.
  • Cutecumbers – They keep you hydrated and nourish you with loads of vitamins and skin-friendly minerals. They tighten open pores and       rejuvenate your skin. They also gets rid of dark circles by reducing water       retention and puffiness (yes, put cutecumber slices on your eyes!)
  • ONIONS -They have Vitamin B and can rejuvenate a dull complexion, improve blood circulation, and help protect from UV rays. They help create a youthful, glowing skin with it’s powerful antioxidants.

These are just some of the facts about fruits and veggies! It you find it a challenge getting all these vegetables in your healthy eating plan – BLEND THEM! My favorites are fruit smoothies! (blend orange juice, some strawberries, blueberries and a banana – delicious, & so easy & quick to make)

Fun Fact: my first fruit I ate when I was just a baby was blended fresh peaches! Yum. Now I want a peach after writing this blog.

Exercise!

We all know exercise is good for us to maintain a fit & healthy body, but is that it? …Nope!

Exercise helps you in so many ways!

Exercise improves your overall mood! It also can increase your energy levels by strengthening circulation and your heart muscle. It also can help fight many health issues and can help reduce high blood pressure. The more you exercise the more it helps your blood flow and decreases your chances of cardiovascular disease. Why Cardio Exercise? Cardio can help strengthen your heart, muscles and lungs. It also helps you improve your endurance levels. Yes – with regular workouts, you can even burn calories while moving and having fun!

Here are my top Fitness exercise routines – the ones I love the most

  • Exercise (Cardio) – Cycling
  • Exercise (Cardio) – Boxing
  • Exercise (Cardio) – Squats
  • Running – with your favorite music
  • Weights – Strengthens and tones

Skin!

Who Loves getting a Facial?! It’s so relaxing and great for your skin! But even though it can help your skin on the outside, you need to help boost your skin from the inside with good healthy eating habits.

TOP Reasons to get a facial – at my Beauty Sponsor Ici Paris Skin Care Clinic & Spa! A warm thank-you to my Beauty esthetician Lia!

  • Consultation with professional & experienced skin care esthetician
  • Facials deep cleanse your skin – This professional treatment will cleanse your skin, pores and bring out it’s natural radiance
  • Skin + hydration = soft radiant face
  • Improves circulation and tones – helps nutrients to enrich your skin and brings out your natural glow!
  • Exfoliates – all the old skin is removed, making way for bright fresh new skin – gets rid of all the little wrinkles too!
  • Stress escape facials – lowers stress levels! It’s been proven that stress can be a factor to causing acne and wrinkles. (SEE top draw prize!)
  • You will come out feeling and looking refreshed and beautiful!

MAKE-UP!

My everyday make-up is usually very light – using mainly a lip gloss and mascara, but for evening I also wear foundation, blush and eyeshadow. You should always stick to what you feel natural and comfortable wearing – I love a natural look because I want to look like myself! 

For my everyday look at the Miss Teenage Canada pageant, I took the advice from Tanya the make-up artist at Ici Paris Skin Care Clinic & Spa! Thank you Tanya!

 

  • A brown eyeshadow                             
  • Lip liner – Light
  • A little bit of contour (not much)
  • Lipstick – Dark Pink     

 

STYLE!

Who doesn’t love going out and shopping for clothing!

I love Shopping at Maxi Boutique! Thank you for providing me with amazing style advise and providing me with so many lovely dresses and outfits!

Here are my top style tips!

  • Don’t be afraid to Mix and Match colors!
  • Patterns are a great way to enhance your look!
  • Make sure you feel confident and comfortable in what you are wearing!

Happy July! What a beautiful month it’s turning out to be!

Over the past few months I’ve been super busy fundraising for WE Charity – Free The Children Charity and participating in numerous volunteer opportunities within my community! I’ve also been super busy promoting my title alongside my “Beauty Inside” campaign and platform with endless appearances!

My fundraising efforts include a raffle with AMAZING  prizes —with all ticket proceeds going to Free The Children Charity! Here’s list of the AMAZING prizes!

First Stop!

Volunteering and WE- Free the Children Charity Fundraising at Kostatex Children Boutique 

 I volunteered with my special sponsor – Kostatex Children’s Boutique! This Boutique is dear to my heart because I pretty much grew up in this store! It was my one stop shop for the best clothing – from casual wear to elegant breathtaking dresses! I spent the day helping out children (and parents) with the selection of beautiful dresses and helped in any way that I could. The goal in mind was to make young girls feel like princesses, special, smart and important – TO PUT IN ACTION my Beauty Inside campaign and platform – crucial for all young ladies to build their confidence, starting from their BEAUTY INSIDE and THEN out! I even handed out mini tiaras to represent how beautiful they were inside.

I absolutely loved every minute; spending time within my community and having the opportunity to give back to a unique store that has given me so many years of happiness and beautiful childhood memories. Also in partnership with Kostatex I held a We Free The Children fundraising event right outside the store. The store offered a 10% discount with any raffle ticket purchased. Thank you Kostatex for the raffle ticket prize of $100 dollars off! Thank you Marianna for your generosity, love and support and the wonderful day!

     

Second Stop!

Volunteering at Tim Hortons – Kids Camp Day!

I volunteered at Tim Hortons Camp Day! It was a great day volunteering and supporting Kids Camp Day! All donations made went to supporting children summer camps. To show support I greeted customers, and handed out Kids Camp Day bracelets. My volunteering and appearance drew attention for such a good cause and provided me with the opportunity to help youth and speak to the public about my platform of empowering youth.

    

Third Stop!

Fundraising for WE -Free The Children Charity, Bay & Adelaide Centre.

I devoted two full days to fundraise for Free The Children at the Bay & Adelaide Centre! I handed mini tiaras to every little girl and little toy cars to every little boy (& girl!) that passed by! And every person who made a donation to We – Free the Children Charity received a “Beauty Inside Gift Bag!” I created the Beauty Inside gift bags – and enclosed in a beautiful bag was an assortment of beauty products such as lip balms, moisturizers, mud masks, hand creams, body mists, chocolate kisses and so much more – as well as my pageant promotional flyer!  I also made Disney’s “Frozen Baskets” that were full of toys, puzzles, purses, books, and stickers. (just to list a few items!) I also made Frozen Gift Bags”, with coloring books, stickers, hair accessories…etc. inside! With any donation made a gift bag was handed out. It was a HUGE fundraising success! Thank you at Bay and Adelaide Centre for the amazing fundraising spot!

    

Fourth Stop!

Volunteering at Ici Paris Skin Clinic and Spa and WE- Free the Children Charity Fundraising

On a beautiful sunshine day I volunteered outside of my sponsor’s store – Ici Paris Skin Clinic and Spa and also fundraised for WE – Free The Children charity! I filled my promotional table with gift baskets and gift bags and spa information. I greeted people passing by and introducing them to the spa and the WE charity. It was a great fundraising – offering 10% discount for services at the spa with any donation made to WE! Ici Paris has a top prize offering in my charity raffle of a luxury spa day! Good Luck everyone, I hope you win!

The CN Tower also offers 360, a revolving restaurant 1,151 feet high and along with breathtaking views, they have amazing cuisine prepared by top Canadian chefs. BUT for those of you who seek excitement and THRILLS there is our famous the “Edge Walk” – whereby you have the opportunity to WALK around the EDGE of the CN tower!

Happy June Everyone! Summer and Sunshine is here! Over last few weeks my “Beauty Inside” journey continues and takes me to my Love of the Arts! The Beauty Inside journey is about finding yourself and your passions and appreciating all the beauty life offers! It’s all there for the taking….you just have to know where to look!

Toronto held its annual “Artfest” in historical and one-of-a kind Distillery District! For those of you who perhaps have not been to the unique area – it’s a must! The Art festival showcased the Artistic community with a focus on brilliant works of art. I strolled through the walkways and reflected upon the creative artistic displays, breathtaking paintings and live music artists! This Arts festival also reflected a few pieces of my heart – painting and photography. <3 I love to create artwork through photography and I ended up taking photos at the famous love locks!

As a part of my “The Beauty Inside Campaign” one of my goals is to also find the beauty inside of others – and I did just that! The Artfest was full of community members who are involved with the local artists and support artists. It was an honor to have the opportunity to speak with many of artists about their journeys in the Art world and about their passion for their art.

The Arts presents the window into an Artist’s mind. Their passion, strength and devotion is inspiring. Their never ending dream to bring beauty and their vision into the world – and how willing they are to share their dream with the world.

As an Arts student myself, the Arts present me with the opportunity for self-expression, and the vehicle to communicate my thoughts and feeling to others. Being a part of the Arts allows me to unfold around everyone and enables me to self-express myself in the way that I desire to be portrayed. The Arts allows me to be in tune with my emotions and express them in various ways to others.

The Art world has made me understand that my life environment affects who I am as a person and who I will be in the future. It has increased my awareness of people, places, and new ideas that I would not be otherwise been exposed to. It has opened my eyes to different aspects of the world and increased my awareness of all the possible emotions a person can have and the many different forms of expression that exist. Because of the Arts I have become a more open minded person. I have become a more creative person. This applies to my acting, writing, filming and painting and many other areas of my life. My mind is more capable of being more open to more ideas. The Arts encourage self-expression and allows me to be become the creative person that I want to be.

  

 Art is Not What You See

But What You Make Others See

It’s feeling more and more like summer here in T.O! —-And its feeling like it’s going to be an amazing fundraising summer!

On May 16th it was National Denim Day across Canada! This day was especially important to me, as everyone in Canada is encouraged to wear denim to show their support for the fight against breast cancer.

Here’s a pic of me in my blue jeans!

And here’s a little musical break of Denim Day to get everyone in the summer fundraising spirit! Enjoy!

I volunteered and fundraised for Denim Day while continuing on my journey to promote my “Beauty Inside” Campaign – which encourages everyone to find the Beauty Inside of themselves and give back – I’m empowering women and helping children in need.

 

The Denim Day event was a great success. It was marked with a pink flower ribbon which was handed out with every $5 donation. I also decided to attract donations by offering some beautiful pink chocolate roses, scrumptious mini cake treats and delicate flower and butterfly cupcakes (all hugged in pink of course!) and Beauty Inside baskets. As you can see in the below picture, my display area was dedicated to the Denim Day and pink theme! I also created my own Beauty Inside baskets made up of luxurious soaps and body lotions. (great feel great items after a long day of volunteering and fundraising!)

I was happy to have had the opportunity to volunteer and bring attention to the day. It was  a wonderful experience and an extremely successful fundraising day!

This is my summer challenge for everyone one there – to find The Beauty Inside of YOU and give something back to your friends, family and your community! Feel free to share your great moments with me anytime!

Happy May everyone! —This past Mother’s day weekend I made my first appearance as Miss Teenage Toronto 2017! This first appearance was particularly special to me as I shared it with my Mother and Grandmother and on Mother’s Day!

The three of us together; all three generations participated in the annual Mother’s day walk to end breast cancer for the Breast Cancer Society of Canada. I’m thrilled that my first appearance representing my title as Miss Teenage Toronto was for a cause dear to my heart and also for many women across Canada and the World.

With this in mind (and heart!) I’d like to introduce you and welcome you all to my “The Beauty Inside Campaign”. A Campaign for every single person who’s been touched by cancer – all girls, moms, grandmothers, sisters, daughters, boys, dads, grandfathers and brothers. The Beauty Inside Campaign represents STRENGTH and the EMPOWERMENT of all women. I aim to increase breast cancer awareness and research by promoting my campaign, fundraising and event volunteering – I hope you all can join me in this amazing journey!

 

The Beauty Inside journey began with an important walk – full of spirit and strength to fight breast cancer together! — I was very proud to be participating in a walk with my Mother and Grandmother, and to show love and support for everyone. The walk took place at Streetsville Park, on a beautiful spring sunshine day! I was extremely proud to represent Toronto and wore my sash and crown throughout the entire walk! The lively event was full of music and fun kids events with face painting artists and balloon twisting artists. They were breast cancer bracelets, ribbons, and T-shirts available with all proceeds going to breast cancer research.

In support of breast cancer awareness, my Mother, Grandmother and I all wore pink! As Miss Teenage Toronto 2017, my official photo for the event was taken and I also took photos with the event participants and children. One of my favorite moments was when a little girl asked to take a photo with the “Princess”. It was simply adorable and heartwarming to be referred to as a princess!

 

During the walk, I was warmly greeted and congratulated by my fellow walkers!

One my favorite moments and photos was taken with our city police officers! I thanked them for services and keeping everyone safe at the event. It was an extremely successful event with hundreds of breast cancer awareness supporters. I am extremely grateful for these events which bring people together, create a network of support and continue to spread the message of hope – and the BEAUTY INSIDE each one of us to make a difference. JOIN ME IN FINDING YOUR BEAUTY INSIDE ! 🙂

It was a wonderful Mother’s Day with my Mother and Grandmother! I just want to give a shout out to the both of you and thank you for continued LOVE and support! And Happy Mother Days to all moms and grandmas!

I hope you’ve enjoyed our short (but so sweet) time together! For next weeks blog, I’ll be sharing all fundraising efforts for Breast Cancer awareness and the “The Beauty Inside Campaign”! BUT Before I sign off – AS PROMISED in my last blog post – you all know about my love for filming and creating montages! So here’s a video I created of the Mother’s Day Walk to End Breast Cancer! I Hope you all enjoy it!

Hello everyone! Alexia here, your 2017 Miss Teenage Toronto!

I cannot begin to express enough how honored and excited I am to represent my hometown of Toronto and begin this journey with you! Competing in the Provincial pageants was an experience that I will cherish forever. Meeting such wonderful, kind and welcoming ladies from all parts of Ontario was such a heart filling experience that I will bring along with me to the Miss Teenage Canada Pageant. In this first blog post of mine you will get to know me, what my passions are, and how I plan to make a difference in the world – I hope you will feel inspired and join me and start making a difference today!

About me

I was raised in the great city of Toronto where I attended Rosedale Heights School of the Arts (RHSA), simply stated – a simply amazing performing arts high school. I graduated with Honors and continued on to attend York University. I’m in the AMPD program (Arts, Media, Performance and Design) with a focus on Theatre and Film.

While at Rosedale, I discovered my creativity – with photography and filmmaking. I aim to create projects with the goal of sending an important message to viewers. One of my more recent photography projects was dedicated to my past bullying experience. Throughout my high school years, I quite often felt left out. It was a difficult time for me but with the support of my family and friends I overcame it and focused on excelling in my studies. This was the basis and focus of a photo project I created called “Light through the Darkness”. Through photography I expressed the message of hope and strength using color techniques. The colors represented hope and it breaking through all darkness. I had taken the photos at the beautiful flower exhibit at Toronto’s Allen Gardens.

Here is a picture of me pre-planning all the different filming shots and angles for the trailer!

Another passion of mine is filmmaking. Film can be an extremely powerful medium and transporter of messages. It’s a medium which the entire world can relate to, regardless of any language barriers. To me it also provides the opportunity for expression. One such opportunity arose when I filmed the trailer for RHSA which was based upon the Shakespearean play “Romeo and Juliet”. It was called “After Juliet” and I focused on sending the messages of women’s strength, women’s equality and internal beauty. For this project I was recognized and received the award for “Film and Video Award for Outstanding Achievement in Filmmaking”. It was so rewarding. I have posted a few photos of my photography work and the trailer link for you to enjoy! For you film and montage lovers, there is more to come in my upcoming blogs….stay tuned! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mi8kqu556lc

Sports 

Ever since I can remember, I’ve enjoyed playing sports. I was in track and field in high school and now enjoy running, swimming and tennis. I stay close to my Greek culture and traditions and I’m even pretty good at traditional Greek style dancing! Here is a picture of me when I was little! The sport that I currently have a passion for is fencing. I began fencing in high school and fell in love with it – and I’m now on the York University Fencing team! The most recent fencing competition was quite nerve wracking! I’m still at the beginning stages –yet I did my best and managed to get some points against my opponents! It just proves that if you believe in yourself and with some teamwork you can achieve anything! Fencing is physically and mentally demanding – the main reasons why I love it so much. It’s pretty cool to also hold a sword! It’s very empowering, especially for women! My dream and future goal is to compete in the Olympics for Team Canada!

 

Volunteering

Here is a card they wrote for me at my time volunteering at the summer camp!

I’ve always found volunteering for amazing organizations, increasing awareness and helping individual people personally extremely rewarding. My volunteering journey began with Ryerson University and their children’s summer theatre camp. I assisted the Director with managing activities and a musical production of Shrek for children ranging from ages 5 – 13 years old. I lead activities with children which required superhero organizational skills! My priority was to ensure no child felt left out. It was very rewarding as all the children departed the camp with a new sense of belonging and confidence. It was such a wonderful experience spending time with children that shared a common interest with me – a love and appreciation for the theatre and the arts.

Making a Difference through Theatre

I’m currently in York University’s Theatre program. Since high school I discovered my passion for the Arts and Theatre. The roles I select to take on in plays usually have a theme and significant message to relay. They have a lasting impact to the audience; and are very relatable to the audience – even to myself. A couple of particular plays that “stayed” with me were “Blue” and “The Vagina Monologues”. It was with great pride that I partook in them as the monologues were spotlighted in support of Women at York University.

Here is me on left of the photo.

While I was in high school, I performed in the Paprika Festival which is held here in Toronto. The festival provides high school students the opportunity to create their own plays from scratch. I teamed up with my classmate who was directing and writing. After analyzing my character and understanding the message of the play – I was immediately drawn to it. It sent the message about society and mental depression –how it can easily be undetected and how it’s not taken seriously. My character was a young woman drowning in depression yet wasn’t reflected her appearance and her battle to overcome depression. The play reminded us all about how we should not judge and how a little kindness and understanding goes a long way. It reminded us about our inner strength, that quite often we don’t even know it’s there.

Here is a photo of me and my wonderful directors!

Emma Watson reading the Famous Monologues!

The Vagina Monologues. It was breathtaking. It was shocking – it was empowering to all women. It was amazing to see such support at York University on Women’s Day – what an amazing experience it was for me to have the privilege to present such brilliant writings. If you have never read them – you should! The monologues are based upon women from around the world – they shared their life experiences and we are transported to their world through their eyes. I portrayed a Bosnian woman nostalgic about her past life and the happiness of being a woman. She takes us to her heart wrenching war experience in Bangladesh. She expresses her experience of rape. Such monologues remind all of us and increase awareness of what women across the world are faced with – even today. It reminds women how crucial it is to support each other and find strength in each other. The event was hugely successful and raised funds for Women’s shelters.

 

 

As Miss Teenage Toronto 2017 I aim to increase awareness and raise money for research for the fight against breast cancer. I would like to empower women going through the toughest battle of lives; to give them strength; to give all women strength; to encourage women to support other women; to be united; to be confident; to never give up; to believe; TO BE FEARLESS.

 

Thank you everyone for taking the time to read my blog! I look forward to taking this journey with you all – stay tuned for blog posts!

Hey guys! I’m back with another blog assignment. I am currently in Santa Monica writing this and its beautiful here. Anyways, back to the assignment –   we were asked to write about a popular place in our city/town or one we enjoy going to most. I picked the CN tower because I believe its the most universally known symbol for Toronto and Canada and I love going there so its perfect!

The Toronto CN Tower was originally built as a communications and observations tower finished in 1976. At the time of its’ completion, the tower was deemed the worlds’ largest free standing structure. The CN Tower is located in downtown Toronto and attracts both local and international tourists. Individuals can dine at the 360 degree rotating restaurant or stand on the famous glass floor thousands of feet above ground.

Toronto_-_ON_-_Toronto_Harbourfront7

The CN tower gives individuals a complete view of the City of Toronto and some of the Greater Toronto Area from the skyline. The tower attracts more than 2 million people every year and is evidently seen in Toronto’s skyline.

Cn-Tower-51752newEdgeWalk2The CN Tower is 147 floors high and was named after the corporation who built it which was the Canadian National company. The buildings’ construction started in 1973 with a crew of over 1,500 people which worked on the tower for 40 months. It was opened to the public in 1976. This passed June 26th marked the 40-year anniversary of the opening of the tower.

In 1995 the tower was “declared one of the modern Seven Wonders of the World” by the American Society of Civil engineers.

Today, the tower is not only used for communications and observations as it was years ago – it stands as a popular tourist attraction including exceptional dining and other exciting and fun things to do.

CN-TowerNot only can CN tower tourists view the Toronto Skyline and dine in its’ outstanding rotating restaurant, the building also offers whats’ called the “edge walk”. The CN Tower “edgewalk” allows individuals to walk around the circumference of the tower’s roof. Exhilaration-seekers can view the entire city of Toronto from every angle around the tower while leaning over the ground beneath. Don’t worry – you’re attached to a harness and pole above you.

newEdgeWalk2

Personally, I have always loved the CN tower because it has always reminded me of my city. I see the tower as an international representation of Toronto and I believe the tower is the most popular physical association with the city of Toronto.

“Its a real landmark for Toronto around the world,” Patrick Quinn, an engineer who helped in the construction of the building said to Global News in June.

newEdgeWalk2

I have been going to the CN tower almost every year for family occasions, get togethers and birthdays. My favourite thing to do at the CN Tower is watch out the windows of the restaurant while rotating around the city and enjoying a great meal.

Whenever I think of the CN tower I think of the time I attended a family and friends get together there and my mom’s good friend announced she was pregnant. We were all so happy and surprised of her news which made the night even more sentimental. I have many very fond memories of times with the ones I love most at the CN tower.

If you are looking for a truly interesting, family-friendly and exhilarating destination to visit in Toronto, I highly recommend visiting the CN Tower.
