All of the Miss World Canada 2017 finalists arrived Sunday, July 17 in Toronto and we were busy right away!   Once we all got checked into the hotel, we started to meet each other and then had so much fun at the Official Sponsor Dinner.

We’re so lucky to have so many amazing sponsors for the pageant.  We got to see the products, test them out and then keep them too!

  

Skecher’s had the most comfortable and cute shoes and I’m sure all of us will welcome wearing them, especially after this week where we will be practically living in all our high heels!

I’m sure we’re all familiar with Skechers, possibly first when we were still in school.  Now of course, they have their own specialty, department and independent stores in shopping malls, as well as through more than 2,000 Skechers retail stores and online at skechers.com.  Skecher’s are available in more than 160 countries and territories throughout the world, including of course, Canada.  You can check out this Manhattan Beach, California company at www.skechers.com.

     

Thanks to Golden Glamour Goddesses, from Toronto, for being another great sponsor of the Miss World Canada pageant!  They have amazing lash extensions and awesome spray tans plus they do airbrush makeup and hairstyling as well so you can treat yourself to the “Full Package.”  It was a pleasure to visit their booth and look at their products and look up their website at www.GGGoddesses.com.

  

Now the WARSH cloth is an amazing product.  You use it to remove your makeup  by just adding water to create a hydro process which cleans and exfoliates.  The WARSH Cloth doesn’t dry your skin like soap would and it keeps your natural acid balance in check by protecting from bacteria.

You simply rinse the WARSH cloth in warm water and wipe away all the grime and oil build-up from your skin. It’s an excellent makeup remover as well as a skin cleanser and exfoliates naturally. Next, flip to the clean side to completely clear away remaining residue.  You clean the WARSH cloth in soap and warm water after every use, hang it to dry and it lasts 3-4 months!  Their website is www.maxinewarsh.com/the-cloth/.

  

My next booth to visit was the Helene Clarkson Designer which is a Canadian company that makes very high quality clothing that is travel friendly so you don’t need to iron them!  She has a selection of dresses, pants and tops, made out of wrinkle resistant fabrics which are all perfect for your luggage and your next trip.  I love to travel and I’m definitely going to look at her fashions for my next trip! Before you adventure out on your next vacation, you should check out the website which is www.heleneclarkson.com.

 

The KRA Shea Butter products are made of natural ingredients and offer  luscious Shea butter in 4oz. containers, lip balms made with essential oils, and lip tints with a hint of colourful minerals. Their website is www.thekra.co/

The KRA company was founded by Pina and Lucy Santoro, sisters, and the creative duo behind the Kra Company. They import 100% natural Shea Butter made by a small group of women in Ghana. I really like how their company is about giving back to communities. Their proceeds of sales return to rural Ghana to support girls in school and to keep women employed. They are also active in fundraising for the Breast Cancer community.

They’re perfect sponsors for the Miss World Canada pageant as they support many of the finalist’s, including my own,”Beauty With a Purpose” platforms with empowering women, giving back to their communities and supporting cancer patients.

Shoes from Nine West were provided for each delegate and I am such a fan of Nine West shoes as are all the women in my family. For us to be supplied with Nine West shoes for our evening gown competition is fantastic! Plus we understand that during the week, all of us contestants will be going downtown for a “Meet and Greet” event at the flagship, Nine West store.

Snappy Towels microfiber beach towels were given away along with blue and pink beach balls emblazoned with their logo. Check out their website at www.snappytowels.com.

Raven social media photo booth was set up to make memories with the party and the official photo wall in the background. All of us girls had so much fun “Performing” in the photo booth and throughout the week, you should see lots of posts of us girls blowing kisses to the “world”!

Isabella Hoops Entertainment also provided lots of photo opportunities for us as they sent hula hoop performers to put on a show and give tips to inspire other enthusiasts among the assembly. Lots of giggles as we tried our hula hooping too! Check out: IsabellaHoopsEntertainment.com

#Hashtagio social media aggregator was there , but not really. They are showcasing every finalist who tagged their photos #MissWorldCanada, on Instagram, so other delegates could see what they’re doing.

Archer Dental sent ahead dozens of tiny gift bags loaded with dental supplies for the week ahead. With all the smiling that we’ll be doing this week, these dental gifts will be appreciated. Archer Dental’s website is archerdental.ca.

And every delegate got tank tops from StreetChic.ca with the slogan “I like it when you smile and I love it when I’m the reason.” Lily was there and we discussed all our blogs for her “Street Chic”  blog.  I really enjoyed going to the street of my hometown, Kelowna, BC to write my fashion article. Ryan at Tastic Marketing ran a great booth too and his website is: www.tasticmarketing.com.

It was a fun night and a great start to a great week at Miss World Canada 2017!

I am so thrilled to be crowned Miss British Columbia World 2017 and to be going to Miss World Canada!  For me, if I’m lucky enough to win Miss World Canada, I could be representing Canada throughout the year that this beautiful country of ours is celebrating it’s 150th birthday where festivals and celebrations are happening all year and all over!

     

I must admit, it is very hard to pick my FAVORITE  spot in British Columbia, there are so many gorgeous areas and there is a reason they call it beautiful BC! Representing the province of British Columbia as Miss BC World is filling me with pride!

I have lived in BC for the past five years and spent lots of my growing up years exploring every corner of BC ! I’ve skied Whistler and most of the interior BC ski hills, hiked Mt Robson, Squamish and many other trails.  I loved the west coast while I was living and working in Vancouver, explored the Okanagan lakes and wineries, often visit family in Victoria and Vancouver Island and the Shuswap Lake area is like my second home!

Our province is so scenic with large mountain ranges, gorgous lakes, very urban cities, orchards, wineries, ski hills, forests and farmland.  British Columbia has it all!! The population of the province is approximately 4 million.

I’ve decided if I must narrow it down to one of my favorite places in BC, I choose Vancouver!!  It is BC’s largest city, and the greater Vancouver area has a population of around 2, 500,000, which makes it the 3rd largest metropolitan area in Canada.  It is a big city, but I’ve found so many quaint little spots such as some beaches, communities, favorite streets and restaurants where I’ve felt right at home!

My favorite area would be the English Bay area which is in the west end of downtown Vancouver just before the entrance to the world-famous Stanley Park. The view is supurb from the beach and boardwalk.  I’d like to say its a peaceful spot, but it isn’t!  It’s very vibrant with lots of activity as many locals and tourists alike walk, bike, rollerblade, swim and sail along here.

If you need to stay in this area, I always recommend The Sylvia Hotel which prides itself on outstanding service, friendly staff and great value. It is an older, charming hotel that is surrounded by the beauty of English Bay and is easily recognized with all the vines and ivy growing up its sides.

One of my favorite restaurants in the area is The Boathouse Restaurant, a seafood tradition in Vancouver since 1981.  They have world-class fresh seafood with high quality ingredients and they now have 6 locations in the Vancouver area.

    

If you head north of English Bay across the Lion’s Gate Bridge you’ll get to West and North Vancouver. I resided in North Vancouver for two years while I attended Capilano University and I also would catch the Seabus across Burrard Inlet and Lonsdale Quay to downtown Vancouver when I continued my education at Blanche MacDonald Centre.  It was so cool to catch a boat to school! 

 

While living in this beautiful city, I never stopped gaping at and exploring with my friends, Vancouver’s natural  and urban charms – Stanley Park, Gastown, Granville Island, Kitsilano, to name a few of its highlights.  No wonder everyone wants to visit or live here!

 

Even though I’ve picked  Vancouver as my favorite spot, I still want to fill you in briefly on the rest of our great province.  The capital city of BC is Victoria, BC which is located on Vancouver Island and just an 1 1/2 hr BC Ferry ride across from south Vancouver. My brother is  attending the University of Victoria and I visit him there when I can.

  

I currently live in the lovely city of Kelowna which is located in the interior of British Columbia. It is the third largest city in BC with a population of approximately 125,000.  The Okanagan is just another gorgeous area of BC, with its lakes, orchards and wineries, that I’m having fun exploring.  The people are so friendly in the Okanagan!

   

The province of British Columbia has a very diverse economy, some of BC’s top industries are tourism, forestry, mining, and farming.

  

As I mentioned, in addition to my favorite English Bay area of Vancouver, there are just so many wonderful places to visit, explore, work or live in British Columbia.  I highly recommend anyone to visit!

If you are planning a trip to British Columbia make sure to check out www.hellobc.com or www.travel.bc.ca to help plan your trip! Make a reservation to stay at The Sylvia Hotel  – info@sylviahotel.com  and dine just down the street on English Bay at The Boathouse at www.boathouserestaurants.ca.

As the Miss World Canada 2017 pageant is so close now, I am just getting so excited!  Plus its busy!  I’m trying to get packed, finish my blog entries, fundraising and paperwork, practice my talent and be prepared!  Probably all of the finalists are going through the same feelings!

As one of my last blog posts before the pageant, I just wanted to give credit to those who have helped me prepare for Miss World Canada.  Of course, first off, a HUGE thank you  to my family, friends, sponsors and all of you who have supported and encouraged me for these last three months!  It absolutely means the world to me!!  I hope I’ll make you proud at Miss World Canada!!

A big thanks to my amazing photographer, Shannon Sturm.  Her and her partner, John, have such an eye for photography, so please check out her work at www.shannonsturm.com.   As we did our photo shoot on a chilly, spring day, we just had so much fun finding the perfect locations and where we didn’t blow away! To use the great outdoors for most of our backdrops was perfect – my career may be in the fashion and makeup world,  but I spend as much time as I can in the beautiful, natural landscapes of this gorgeous country of ours!

In these photos, I’m modeling  fashions from Bombshell Boutique and I thank the owner, Sylvie for supplying all of the styles!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

I also want to give thanks to Rob at Talpool who photographed me on very short notice, the morning after I won Miss BC World in late March!

     

Thanks to Lori who was the graphic designer who designed my logo and letterhead that I used for all my sponsorship, public appearance and fund-raising letters.  Lori even designed my car magnets for when I rode in my friend’s car at the Vancouver Canada Day parade!

Miss BC World 2017 – Natalie Allin

See you soon as I post during pageant week!

Much love,

Natalie

Its July and its 36 above here in Kelowna’s fashion street, Bernard Street!!

Kelowna is known for its hot, dry summers and today is proof of that!  The city is surrounded by the beautiful Okanagan Lake and beaches like Gyro Beach are hopping!  Especially today, most of the residents are probably skipping work to escape for a dip in the lake, just to cool down!

Kelowna is located in interior BC, but there is a lot of fashion influence from the major city of Vancouver (which is only 4 hours away). Kelowna is also surrounded by orchards and wineries. Some of my favorite wineries in the Okanagan are: Quails Gate Winery and Mt.Boucherie Winery. With all the amazing wineries in Kelowna there are amble opportunities to dress up in cute Kelowna fashions on the way to different wine tastings.

Which bring me back to Bernard street where I have found some models who are not wearing bikinis and captured a few fashionista’s right downtown Kelowna modeling some hot summer styles! Bernard Street has an eclectic mix of boutiques and clothing shops, restaurants, outdoor cafes and ice cream stops.

Hanna wears a pattern dress from Forever 21

Hanna is seen here wearing a cute summer dress by Forever 21. Her styling leather purse is Marc Jacobs and she’s wearing her comfy Converse sneakers! Hannah is a 28 year old working professional in Kelowna. Hannah likes to dress up but still feel comftorable while she balances working two jobs. She needs her clothing to be versatile, cute, and practical. For the hot summers in Kelowna Hanna loves to throw on sun dresses.

Nicole in a 100% rayon, teal blue maxi dress by Love Stitch

Further down Bernard Street, I found the popular boutique, Blonde, which has been a main shopping stop in Kelowna since 2004. Inside, I found Nicole, who was rocking her boho chic look that was all outfitted by Blonde. Nicole was wearing a 100% rayon, teal blue maxi dress by Love Stitch, which sells for $109.00 in the store. She accented it with the Brixton white hat that retails for $95.00 and her shoes were Steve Madden. Nicole set off her whole outfit with a funky necklace, made by who else? Nicole! She designs and makes jewelry that is all sold in the store, this piece for $40.00 so just check out www.nicoleyoungart.com for more of her designs.

The coolest (did I say coolest, which it isn’t today!) part about Kelowna’s Bernard Street is . . . when you get to the end of it, you’re right at the beach and City Park of Okanagan Lake. Anyone that works downtown, like I do, can take their lunch break right at the beach!

Madeline wears a cute blouse downtown Kelowna British Columbia

It was here that I found Madeline, a University of British Columbia Okanagan student. She was on a job hunt, as she just finished her spring classes at University of British Columbia Okanagan, the week before. No better place to pose than in front of the “Sails” statue that is right on the end of Bernard Street.

Madeline’s fabulous shoes were from Top Shop and her black pants were from Latest Scoop in Vancouver. Garage outfitted her in her shirt and hat, with her necklace from Pyrrha and Madeline sported a Marc Jacobs purse to complete her look. Thank you for allowing us to capture your style, Madeline!
Now you know it! When you visit the beautiful Okanagan area of British Columbia, you must spend some time right downtown Kelowna on Bernard Street enjoying the awesome cafes and the unique boutiques on Bernard Street.  In the summer in downtown Kelowna, there are cafes, lives music, festivals, and so much to see and do.

Have a look and then go have a dip!

Miss World Canada’s official charity is The Children’s Wish Foundation. It is a great charity and is the largest and only all-Canadian wish granting charity dedicated to granting wishes to Canadian children between the ages of 3 and 17 who are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. For more than 30 years, Children’s Wish has worked tirelessly to grant heartfelt wishes to nearly 25,000 children and their families – that’s three wishes each and every day, all year long!

Children’s Wish has offices and staff in every province, and each wish family is assigned a dedicated Wish Coordinator who is able to carefully structure each heartfelt wish experience to meet the particular needs of the child and their family. Travel wishes include all siblings 21 years and under living in the same household. Wish referrals increase year over year, and the Children’s Wish Foundation is proud to maintain our ‘no waiting list’ policy, thanks to generous donors.

I have been in contact with Nikki from The Children’s Wish Foundation British Columbia and Yukon Chapter who has informed me that in the Kelowna region, there are 13 pending wishes as of right now.  Pending means that the 13 wishes are in the various stages of booking, such as the families haven’t decided where to go, waiting until the child is older or the right time of year.  On average, a wish costs $10,000 each!

As Miss BC World 2017, I have been busy fundraising for the charity and have almost reached my goal. I have reached out to co-workers, friends, family and have been overwhelmed with the response I’ve received. Thank you to all of you who have donated so far! I’ve also made up donation jars and located them at various locations around Kelowna and handed out cards with The Children’s Wish Foundation information at the various public events I’ve attended.

If you’re reading this and want to donate too – please contact me at n.allin47@hotmail.com.

Thank you so much!!

Hi everyone! I hope everyone reading this have been having a great week!

I just got back from Vancouver where I was attending the Canada 150th celebrations in downtown Vancouver. There were so many proud Canadians and tourists attending all the festivities happening at Canada Place, where this 2-day celebration was the largest Canada Day Celebration west of Ottawa.

I had a blast at the Canada 150 parade in downtown Vancouver. Thank you to my wonderful friend, Dave Hartney for driving me in your classic Mustang convertible! Make sure to check out Dave Hartney’s band and his debut single “Party Lights”. Also last minute Lia Fallah, my pageant sister (Miss Vancouver World) rode with us as well.

The colony of Canada was established in 1534, so some may be wondering why we’re celebrating 150 years. That’s because we’re actually celebrating the Canadian Confederation, which is when the colonies of Canada (Ontario and Quebec), Nova Scotia and New Brunswick were united as the “Dominion of Canada” on July 1, 1867.

Canada is such an amazing country and I am so happy to be a fifth generation Canadian. Canada is full of natural beauty and a very diverse population of different cultures and ethnic groups.  Our population is 36 million people.

From the East Coast to the West Coast there is so much to see and I consider myself one of the lucky ones to have travelled across most of this vast, beautiful country of ours!

Plus this is definitely the year to get out there and explore Canada. For 2017, all of Canada’s national parks, heritage spaces and national museums are 100% free to enjoy. Growing up in Jasper National Park I recommend anyone taking full advantage of seeing any of Canada’s national parks and the beautiful geography of our country.

In just two weeks I will compete at the Miss World Canada pageant with the hope of going on to represent Canada on an international stage at Miss World. I would be so thrilled if I won Miss World Canada and was able to represent Canada on our 150th year!

Hello again,

The Miss World Canada and Miss World organizations both celebrate confident and independent women who are making their place in their communities, country and world. As I read some of the blogs of the other women competing in Miss World Canada 2017, I’m so impressed with what the other finalists have studied, careers they’re working in, travels they’ve taken and how they’re contributing in their communities. I can’t wait to meet them all this month which is coming up soon!

I believe as women in today’s society, we can do anything we put our minds to and to be role models for future generations of girls and young women. In 2017, we are so fortunate in our progressive country of Canada that equality for women and women rights are at the forefront and women are now able to accomplish anything they desire. Woman can be CEO’S, educators, mothers, scientists, entrepreneurs or anyone they chose.

As for myself, I’ve tried to take all opportunities that have come my way. I’m 23 years old and have had some time to get my post-secondary education and acquire work experience to follow my own career goals.

I moved away from my family and small town of Jasper, AB when I was 18. I studied Arts at MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta before moving to Vancouver in 2012.  I attended Capilano University in North Vancouver and received my “Acting for Stage and Screen” Certificate.

The realities of making a living within the acting world was daunting so I chose to continue my education and head to Blanche MacDonald Centre,  one of Canada’s leading Fashion and Beauty schools.  I absolutely loved it there and obtained my diplomas in both Fashion Merchandising and Design plus Makeup Artistry.

     

  

I worked at as a makeup artist and also as a wholesale fashion sales representative in Vancouver. I was also able to model and be part of some commercials, the most fun wearing beautiful bridal gowns for Isabelle’s Bridal in print and on Vancouver Morning TV shows. It was such a thrilling time for me, launching my career and living in downtown Vancouver, which I can easily say is one of the most beautiful and vibrant cities in the world!

   

After taking some time to travel, I relocated last year for work and to take business courses. I always keep my foot in the tourism business that I grew up in and also work as a travel consultant booking many of the outstanding resorts and lodgings throughout BC and North America. I hope one day to run my own business as I am inspired by the many women entrepreneurs in business today.

Sorting out my career path is certainly an adventure. I’ve also  learned the responsibilities of life as I live on my own, paying rent and balancing work with down time. I don’t deny the times I’ve felt lonely, when living far away from my family, or realizing that after growing up in a small town where everyone knows you, that not all people share my small town values. Travelling has been wonderful but I’ve also had a few terrifying experiences (where I found myself all alone on New Years Eve in Nice, France)

But all in all, I’ve been experiencing life to its fullest and taking every opportunity as I hope other women my age do. I look at each day as a new adventure! Of course, competing in Miss World Canada will be a highlight!

See you there in two weeks!

Natalie

Being a young adult in today’s society I feel a great responsibility to help out; whether it’s in my community, province, another country or anywhere! There are so many ways that young adults can help! Youth have the power to make a big difference in our world.

                          

Since winning the title of Miss British Columbia World, I have been volunteering with a number of organizations, such as “The Little Black Dress Gala” and “Sole Girls,” which I’ve written about in my blog.  I also volunteer for the “Look Good, Feel Better” workshops in Kelowna, BC where I help women who are facing cancer by giving them makeovers and teaching them beauty techniques.  I am so moved by how these women are facing their battles with cancer.  They are trying to feel normal in a life that is by no means normal, as they try to manage the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment.

In the past, I have also helped raise funds and volunteered for such charities as the Salvation Army, “Because I Am A Girl,” “OWL” (Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation), Hollyburn Victims House, BC Women’s Hospital Foundation, MPS Fun Run all in Vancouver, BC. In Edmonton, I volunteered for Western Canada Fashion Week, the Edmonton Humane Society “Pets in the Park” festival, Cancer Daffodil Day and in my hometown of Jasper, I volunteered for the “Tour of Alberta” Cycling Race organization, Red Cross Calgary Flood Relief Fundraiser, HIV West Yellowhead, “Free the Children,” “Go Girl” Conferences, Santa’s Anonymous, Jasper Rotary Club and Chamber of Commerce plus other events.

There are many different reasons for you too to start volunteering:

  • To help others
  • To learn about an activity or organization that interests you
  • To gain perspective on life
  • To beat boredom
  • To overcome a hard time in your life or loss you have experienced.

There are so many opportunities to volunteer.  The following list will give you lots of different ideas on how you can become a volunteer in your community.

  1. Homeless Shelters
    If you live in a bigger city, then there is most likely a  homeless shelter that helps homeless people with meals, beds and other services. Most homeless shelters welcome volunteers and have a variety of programs in which you can get involved. You might help prepare or meals even work behind the scenes.
  2. Habitat for Humanity: Habitat for Humanities builds and gives houses to lower income households in local communities. Volunteers not only help others, but can learn a great deal about building houses by getting involved. See the Habitat for Humanities web site for more information. Call the national office or your local office for information about volunteer programs in your area.
  3. City Programs: Most large cities offer a wide range of volunteer opportunities. Look in your local newspaper, online and call around to see what might be available where you live.
  4. Hospitals: Many hospitals have volunteer programs to help patients both inside and outside the hospital.The volunteers programs allow participants to explore medical careers and gain work experience. Contact local hospitals to learn more about opportunities in your area.
  5. Senior Citizens Centers: Many senior citizen centers offer volunteer programs to provide friendship and community activities to senior citizens. If you would like working with senior citizens, call a senior citizen center in your neighborhood and see what kinds of volunteer programs they have available.
  6. Animal Shelters:Many SPCA’s are non-profit or government organizations, and therefore they welcome volunteers to help take care of animals, keep facilities clean and work with the public. Call a local animal shelter for more information.
  7. Red Cross: The Red Cross helps people in emergencies – whether it’s half a million disaster victims or one sick child who needs blood. A local emergency in Western Canada was when there was a huge forest fire that devastated the town of Ft McMurray in 2016. Volunteer opportunities exist across the country. Contact your local Red Cross for more information.
  8. Salvation Army: The Salvation Army provides social services, rehabilitation centers, disaster services, worship opportunities, character building activities for all ages and character building groups and activities for all ages. Volunteer opportunities exist across the country
  9. Food Banks: Food banks often work with homeless shelters, but they also serve poor people living in the community (especially around the holidays). Food banks collect food, manage their inventory and distribute food to those in need.
    Any food bank will offer similar opportunities in your area. Look in the phone book for a local food bank if you are interested.

Volunteering is so rewarding and even though everyone leads busy lives and may be working full-time as I am or studying or have other commitments,  you won’t regret allowing yourself to find some time to help others.  I’m certainly looking forward to volunteering and helping out with as many organizations as possible throughout my year as Miss BC World 2017!
