Last week, I spent a day shopping with Miss at the factories of St-Sauveur in the heart of the Laurentians.
I met Miss at the auditions that took place in Montreal in the month of May and soon we easily established an excellent friendship. 
Although we both participate in a major competition, I am certain that we will remain excellent friends afterwards, especially since we live nearby in the beautiful region of the Laurentians.
Our shopping did not pay off but we still had good time together.


We took the opportunity to go for dinner at Brochetterie le Chalet Grec.
As the portions were huge and were not allowed to order from the kids menu, we shared a plate which was more than enough.
Returning to the Factories to join our parents, the mother of Miss Quebec had the wonderful idea to arrest a policeman and offer him the opportunity to pose with us, which he found very nice, reflects his smile!


We had a wonderful day together with a glorious summer sun.
Follow me to know everything about my next experiences.

At the end of june, I went to the SPCA to do some volunteer work. The SPCA is an organization that cares for abandoned and distressed animals. They also try to provide a family to the animals as much as possible.

I want to say a very big thanks to all the team of the SPCA and the group Engage animal for having me at the end of june to let me know more about their reality.

I was able to see how much the staff are invested and dedicated to the animals. Sophie Gaillard, Animal Advocacy Director and Amélie Martel Animal Welfare Director.

Also, I want to thank Élise Desaulniers, Executive Director of the SPCA, and Dr. Gabrielle Carrière, Chief Veterinary Officer, for having me on july 5 and for supporting me in my fundraising campaign.
I want to reach the goal of $ 800!

This day of awareness has allowed me to see the harsh reality of many animals that are in distress and desperately waiting for a loving family who will adopt them.

Hello, my name is Mackie and I am your Miss Teenage Montreal 2018. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to participate in Miss Teenage    2018, a major competition.

I am an only girl and since very young, I have an overflowing energy, I am always ready to launch me in new experiences and adventures of all kinds. Wherever I go, my joy of life, my contagious smile, my dynamism and my voluntary attitude are highlighted. I am a genuine person, sensitive and human. I am easily touched by some unfair realities of life. I like to be surrounded and people come easily to me.

In addition, I am a sports stamped. I attend an equestrian center since the age of 9. When I practice riding, I ride in Western and English saddle. I have done a lot of volunteer work for all these years and I gained a lot of knowledge about horses and how to care for them.

Also, I swim from a very young age.

In the winter, I will complete my last level so I can be a lifeguard. I have been skiing since the age of 4.

Finally, I practice karate since I was 7 years old and I got my black belt in 2017. 

I grew up in contact with nature, my parents having a house on the edge of a lake in the middle of the forest. This environment influenced me on many levels and I developed a passion for animals, for outdoor sports and for country living.

The world of entertainment, fashion and telecommunications attract me as much as they are completely different worlds that I learn to know and discover. This world piques my curiosity, leads me to surpass myself and develop new skills at home.

I am excited to be part of this wonderful adventure ! I hope you will want to follow me and share all my new experiences.

Hey dolls and bunnies !!!

I am back with a new topic… Fashion ! Yes you heard it ! of cours everyone likes once in a while to look stylish, am I wrong ? 😉

I saw this beautiful lady walking down the street with this type of retro style and… I felt in love with it! It was Wednesday of last week. We were near Kent Park, very close to l’Hôpital Général Juif in Côtes-des-neiges. She and her boyfriend, Alfred seemed lost when I approached them. She smelt like peaches and other fruits. She also told me she was wearing some dolce and Gabana mixed with a less expensive product. I thought she was a model because of her beautiful face. I got to know her a little bit and later, I took a picture of her. 

The Queen of Brown

Her name is Elizabeth, but everyone calls her Elly. She is currently studying in communications in Italy and she came in Montreal for vacations. When she was young, she used to do modelling and she stopped five years ago. At that time, she met Alfred, a blue-eyed men with blond hair. They are currently planning their wedding for next year. Elizabeth is also anxious to visit the Old-Port of Montreal and to try our poutine. She always dreamed to come here. (By the way, go check out my previous post for more info concerning the Old-Port) 

The first thing that attracts my attention when I see this picture is the combination of browns. These brown jeans give her an elegant look with her brown boots. Her high-heeled boots in false leather fit with her brown, sort of squared sunglasses. Combined with her long white sleeve shirt, she is gorgeous. This look is similar to a ”Retro Style”with her belly showing a little bit under her shirt.

Retro styles from Italy

Except her sunglasses, all the clothing she had on her was bought in Italy. Her pants cost approximately fifty euros and her shirt twenty-five euros. She bought both of them two years ago, during her trip to Milan, Italy. Her boots were at least seventy-five euros and more. She received the brown bag as a gift from her oncle at Christmas last year.

When she turned twenty-nine, she went to Germany to celebrate her birthday with some friends. Elly was enjoying her day, entering in expensive places and trying out every clothing in the store. Her sunglasses cost around fifty-five canadian dollars if converted. Her sunglasses remind her about that day when she also dressed like a men while her boyfriend was trying some new hauls.

Elizabeth got her long, round and metallic earrings from Zara, also in Italy. Her neckless was a gift of her grandmother for her futur wedding. 

Her curly dark brown hair is well arranged in her half up half down hairstyle. In addition, her brown bag matches with her sunglasses and her boots. What a combination of brown colours!

(I Feel like eating brownies, all this brown is making me hungry lol 😀 )  

It was happy to meet her and very thankful for her advices…

To conclude, here is my thought of the day;

Make your own Fashion. It’s all about creating, innovating and being artistic. Fashion is not just about what brand you are wearing, it is a combination of colours, materials and confidence that makes you look fabulous. – Allison, Miss Teenage Montreal 2017 

This is all for today’s post. I hope you will take in consideration these beautiful and powerful words. Be yourself, embrace yourself and help others 🙂 .

Welcome back !!

MIss Teen Montreal 2017 at Formule E.

For those of you who would like to know me better, check out my last blog ‘’Hello from Allison, Miss Teenage Montreal 2017’’. It is almost time for me to go to Toronto for the nationals!!! (le temps passe tellement vite 🙁 …) I will remind you when you will have to vote for your region delegate. 

A little of History Class

Like I said in my last blog, I was born in Montreal, Quebec. For me, what makes the city so extra is the fact that there is a lot of diversity of the people. All kinds of personalities from different cultural backgrounds live and build our society. 

Montreal is the most populous municipality of the province of Quebec. Most of the population speaks french and french is the official language of the province. Street names, restaurants and government instituts are all in french. The business industry and the artistic one is also priorly in French.
In fact, if you are under 18 years old, (legal age of majority) and if both of your parents studied another language than english, you will have to go at a french elementary school and high school. On the other hand, if one of your parents graduated at an english school, you will be able to chose in which language you want to study. After high school comes Cegep. If you are under 21 and you want to go to university, you have to graduate from Cegep.

Where should I go in Montreal?? 

Montreal is a very popular destination for tourism. one of the places that I prefer the most is the Old-Port of Montreal. The old Port is near LaRonde, one of the 6 flags’s attraction parks. it is near everything. In addition, there is activities and attractions during the whole year.

Here’s a picture of one of the most popular activities of all times.

Originally, it is a very old building where many people used to work in. It was a sort of manufacture at that time. Years past by and the building was abandoned. A company decided to make a sort of labyrinth inside this mysterious building. It worked because it is now a must to go when you are a tourist. 

Another way to spend a good time in the Old-Port would be the Zipline.

Two years ago, the Zipline was in construction. The company started testing it with people of different weight and it was kind of funny to see people getting stuck in the middle of the river or going all the way to the top. They made some adjustments and now, it has become an attraction for aspiring adventurers. 

A lot of festivals are in the Old-Port. Caricaturists are everywhere and restaurants are open until late night. If you get the chance to, try out our ‘’Poutine’’. (Trust me !)

 

This year, in honour to the 375 year of anniversary of Montreal, the mayor of Montreal spent 1 billion dollars to celebrate with us, citizens. During multiple days, we had the opportunity enter for free on commun transports. ‘’ La grande roue’’ like we say in French, has been placed in the old port, in front of the river.   

 

This year, Formule 1 (a car race event near the
Old Port every year) decided to make the first Formule 1 with electric cars. It was a bigger event than year before. I had the chance to assist the event !! 

If you ever get a chance to come to Montreal, Trust me ! The Old-Port of Montreal is the best place ever!! If you want to have fun while your spending your vacations, it is a must.

Hello dolls!! I hope you are having an amazing day.  Boys are welcomed to 🙂 Let me introduce myself. My name is Allison and I am Miss Teenage Montreal 2017. I am so excited and happy to represent my city with this title.  I will compete for the title of Miss Teenage Canada 2017 in Toronto during the week of August 7th to 13th. (Yes you heard it ;D) Girls from all provinces of Canada got selected to represent their regions like me and they will compete against each other at the Nationals in Ontario. Now…How did I get the title?!?We will talk about this later in this article.

A Little About Me

I am 16 years old, I’ll be in secondary 5 this year and I am from Montreal. At a young age, I learned 4 languages; French, English, Spanish and Italian. Being autodidact, I started learning Romanian and Arabic on my own since secondary 3. People say about me that I am sociable and very easy to approach. I love learning about people’s cultural backgrounds and I think people should be proud of their origins.
Being passionate about music and the art industry, I would really like to be able to make a living based on one of my passions. I am also interested in studying communications later. I will soon start to create videos of popular songs that I will interpret and post on YouTube (In other words; ‘’covers’’). I am planning on creating my own songs and hopefully produce an album in the future. I currently sing in different languages and one of my goals is to learn and perform in new ones. I love everything that is different. I like to see people who embrace their culture. All cultures have something special. I’ve already traveled to the Caribbean and Italy but still wish to travel around the world and discover new countries.

Now… HOW DID YOU GET THE TITLE ?!?!??

Ok. First of all, calm down ;-). Me and other contestants were advised about the local casting of the Miss Teenage Canada Beauty Pageant. I received a last minute email that became suddenly an opportunity for me to get out of my comfort zone. I thought to myself, “Why not? After all, what I had nothing to lose in trying something new. I ran to my mother’s room, told her about it and she agreed to sign the papers. 2 days later, I was in front of this hotel. I started to feel goosebumps. That’s when I knew it was time for me to be the best version of myself. (Donner mean 200% like we say in Quebec ;D). All the girls one by one were interviewed. I still remember everyone in the hallway talking about it and getting nervous. I started to ask myself all kinds of questions;“what if I can’t say the word in English and I say it in French?” or “what if I don’t understand the question” “what if this and what if that?”… I was called. It was my turn.

They asked me 3 top secret questions. (One of them was my hobbies ;D) Then, it was time for me to put-on my swimming suit. The second criteria was the fitness of the future delegates. We had to walk and pose with the swimming suit and our high heels. That was my favorite criteria. (Don’t ask me why, I don’t even know the answer 😀 lol)

It wasn’t as simple as it seems. 5 to 8 girls were crowned for the Nationals in Toronto and we were a little more than 30 contestants in the province of Quebec.

I am very thankful for the opportunity to be Miss Teenage Montreal 2017 and represent my region in the Miss Teenage Canada pageant. If you ever get the chance to participate in the pageant, don’t hesitate, take it, don’t let it go. It only happens once in a lifetime .

All the Miss Teen Canada- World 2012 delegates were given the assignment of filming ourselves doing an act of kindness while looking good and feeling great about the act that we did. I would have worn my crown to make this video, but I didn’t wanted my friend, Albert to feel inferior or act differently around me.

My act of kindness was helping my friend Albert. Albert also happens to be my neighbor. When I had first moved in two years ago, he was the first person to come up to me. He’s super sweet and has an obsession with cars. Sadly, Albert doesn’t have full mobility with his legs. He’s almost always roaming around in a wheelchair. When he is at home he may stand and and try to walk with the support of sturdy objects. His legs cannot support his body.

Recently Albert received an iPod Touch which he adores so much. His parents don’t exactly know how to set everything up. I always offer to help. I’m not a tech guru, but I do know a few things about iPods and I’m very patient. At the time in the video, Albert wasn’t able to use his apple gift card to download music. Before leaving to pageant week, I told myself that I would find time in my busy schedule to visit him. Correcting the problem took 20 minutes and I could have left, but I decided I would help him choose and download music and transfer his purchases into his iPod which took 30 minutes.

He was very excited and greatful that I had helped him. I was happy to see him happy. Tje moment I was done, he started playing the new songs that I had downloaded for him. His parents were also glad, because they said that they really didn’t know what to do and appreciated that I was really patient with Albert. They even wanted to pay me for my services, but I told them no thanks. Seeing their smiles on their faces was good enough and it brought joy to my heart.

My television show would be a talent search called Starpower. The talents can range from any variety like singing, dancing, acting or etc. The contestants will be young aspiring entertainers between the age of 13 to 21. They would most likely be people with financial troubles or living in regions with less chanes to get in the entertainment business. The one thing they all have in common is a dream.

On the shows website all who would like to participate have to make an account. For a month they will have to post videos of themselves demontrating their talent. A panel of judges Beyonce, Adele, Elton John, John Legend and myself will select 20 to come on the show. On the show every week will be challenges that will help the participants grow in their talent. Each week one is sent back home. The top three will win a scholarship to their school of entertainment in Canada.

The show will air on MuchMusic. It will be an hour long from 7pm to 8pm. Extra footage can be found on the website.

I believe that Zack Werner’s Idol School and the Toronto Academy of Acting for Film and Television should fund my show, because my show has to do with what they do. It would be great publicity for them and most of the contestants will decide to go there and encourage other viewers to go there too. Your expertise would be very needed.
