This is my fashion blog post from street chich, once I get it back ill post the proper like this is just the article I wrote

I Live in Calgary and I must say I am so lucky too because when it comes to fashion we have everything to high-end , super fancy clothing such as fancy dresses to country wear which includes cowboy boots and during stampede a cowboy hat. Even ‘just a Saturday night in with the girls but you have to still go pick up that pizza in a bit so you have to look semi presentable’ look which is one that I find myself wearing more than I’d like to admit. In Calgary we also have a very widespread street wear style that differs from a long, baggy shirt worn as a dress with plaid around your waist to sweats and a jersey. All of these styles and looks are never just set to genders which is also one of my favorite style choices to play with such as wearing a man’s shirt or a blazer. I have 4 different looks that I find myself frequently wearing and sometimes I mix them up and combine styles. My first look is something you can wear to a casual event/ outing or you can dress it up with heels like I did or even a bit of jewelry like bracelets or a longer necklace since the front is quite plain and you’re good to go to a nice dinner. The model (Cailyn) is shown wearing a shoulder less top which is a must in every girls closet during the summer (free those shoulders) but due to the fact that there is no hiding annoying bra straps I highly recommend a strapless bra, which I know can be tricky to keep up sometimes but your outfit will look so much better. The shirt is just a plain high waisted black skirt which gives you the freedom to tuck in your shirt or leave it untucked, the short the model is wearing was quite long so I decided to have is tucked in for a cleaner and more out together look.  My second outfit is country inspired and is something I find myself wear quite often. The model is wearing something you could wear for a day out, Calgary stampede or an outing to one of the many country themed bars we have. I choose to stick with the lighter color for the jeans and top because not only does it get less hot I also find it makes your boots pop more, but you could just as easily throw on some dark blue jeans and the outfit would still work. Traditionally with cowboy boots you would wear boot cut jeans that cover them but if you’d like to show them off wear a tighter fighting jean such as a skinny jean to show those boots off. Also on a side note is like to add the fact that cowboy boots are one of my favorite shoes because they are versatile and functional but also they look great with jeans and if planned right they go amazingly well with a skirt or cute summer dress. My third look is street wear that is comfortable and nice enough that to u could exercise in it or go out and do your daily deeds. I went with white sweat pants because I feel like they are a great statement piece considering how often you actually see white sweatpants. I went with the white tank top to blend in under to make the black jersey standout more. Then I used the red bandana and lipstick to give the look a pop of color and as a standout piece. Also I swear by converse they are my absolute favorite shoes and u can where them with anything at any time! For my last outfit I went for more of a classic look with the 50s style red dress. You can wear it whenever and its light enough to wear in the summer and once winter rolls around you can throw on some leggings or thighs and put on an old style knitted jacket (the one I have reminds me of a sock monkey) I think my favorite part about any of these outfits is that you can wear them anytime and dress them up or down due to your mood and what you are dressing for.

In the past when people I know visit Calgary they always ask me if we have any really good tourist attractions that they should stop by. Often in times I’m never quite sure where to start, we have the Calgary zoo, which has just recently updated its animals with lemurs and they also have everything from penguins, to lions, to wolves and even dinosaurs. They have something for everyone in the family. The Telus spark center which is an interactive science center that teaches kids about thing like the water cycle, how light and sound travel. It was also just recently updated with a mind bending maze which is fun for the whole family or for you and your friends. We have also been lucky enough to have a bunch of different art pieces recently installed down town Calgary including the ‘wonderland’ piece otherwise known to locals as the big head in front of the bow building. For those who don’t know the Bow building is currently Calgary’s tallest skyscraper surpassing the well know Calgary tower (which is indeed another tourist attraction downtown.) Although there are very many unique things to see or visit in Calgary I believe my favorite is the Calgary peace bridge. Now you might be thinking “really a bridge?” but let me explain. This amazing piece of architecture opened in March of 2012, and is a whopping 428 feet end to end spanning across the bow river. The bridge was built to make it easier for pedestrians to get from the southern bow river pathway (which is a beautiful walk I might add) to downtown Calgary. I think what makes this bridge so special is the design and architecture of it. It was designed to be accessible to everyone no matter your ability to move, it was created with the intentions of keep as much space open as possible, also it has multiple lighting fixtures intergraded into the ground and sides of the bridge in order to keep it well-lit even at night. My personal favorite thing about the lights is that on special occasions the lights can vary in color creating a beautiful sceptical. The design of the bridge earned it the nickname “finger trap bridge” from locals here because it really does look like a finger trap. Due to the structure and 24/7 lighting I promise you can always get an amazing picture on or off the bridge. I have found the most amazing photos are taken when it’s at night because the lights from the bridge can often in times reflect off the water giving your photos an amazing glowing effect that you can’t get with any photo editor. The surrounding pathways and trees also make for great backgrounds due to their vibrant colors. My favorite time is just after spring but still before summer because there are beautiful flowers that grow riverside and beside the paths varying from bright yellow to deep purple. I think this is one of my favorite places to visit when we have an exciting event, for example my friends and I all took a limo to the bridge and took amazing grad photos and those are something I’m going to cherish forever. It is also a great place to take a late night or day time walk with your family or partner or even friends really. The bow river is one of Alberta’s larges rivers running from almost end to end of the province so it does make a great date spot by the bridge and beside the river. So I suggest if you ever come to Calgary you seriously have to visit the Calgary peace bridge and get some great photos.

Hi everyone, I’m Cailyn: Miss Teenage Calgary 2017!

First off I would like to just thank everyone who has been or is going to be a part of my journey.  I am looking forward to meeting people, making new friends and having a larger role in my community. I am 17 years old and I love art, reading, and archery. My real passion is hip hop.  When I’m on stage I feel like I’m invincible!  I am currently in my last year of high school and can’t wait to attend Sait’s culinary course in the fall! I consider myself kind of a geek. I enjoy comics, superhero’s, and video games. If I could have one super power it would be teleportation. How cool would it be to get Churros in Mexico and get back in no time at all so I can go to a Flame’s game with my friends?  I have anxiety and sometimes struggle with self acceptance. Each day could bring a new worry for me but I wake up with a positive attitude and say “I feel like some lemonade today.  Bring on the lemons!”  I am learning how to love myself inside and out and although it isn’t always easy, I find it easier each day by remembering what’s important. I watch teenagers and kids alike these days change something about themselves just because others don’t like it. It can range from appearance, confidence, how you act or what you say; even how loud you are. I’ve had people try to change me and for awhile I used to try and change myself to be who they thought I should be; but no more. I would like to help others to start accepting themselves for who they are and find their inner strength and beauty.  My goal on here is not to just talk at you but listen to you and hopefully share some laughs and smiles along the way.  Ready for an adventure?

It’s been a week since I’ve embarked on my journey to Nationals! What a crazy, yet fun and busy week it was. That being said, it was challenging to keep up with proper meals to fuel my body with the right nutrition. I was thankful enough to have my USANA supplements on hand during the week. Knowing I would need that extra boost of energy, or a reliable protein filled snack, I was completely satisfied with my USANA products! I’ve been taking USANA for 3 years now, and the results I’ve gotten from these products are all positive. I happily consume Vitamin D, Active Calcium (as I do not drink milk or enjoy dairy products that much so this really benefits me), Proflavanol C, Usanimals, Probiotic, and BioMega! WOW what a list! But it doesn’t end yet! I also have been using the whole skin care line in which has cleared up my acne marvelously, improved the shine and health of my hair and nourished my body! If it benefits me, why not splurge on these products? If you’ve never heard about USANA well here’s some friendly information about this company 🙂

  • USANA manufactures the highest-rated, most effective nutritional supplements and health care products in the world.
  • The company has sponsored and provided products to several athletic organizations.
  • “Our focus on personalization—in our product line and with owning a USANA business—allows you to think about your personal choices in life and how your everyday behaviors have an impact on your overall quality of life. Your Health. Your Life. Your Way.”

In 1974, he founded Gull Laboratories to develop viral diagnostics, and his greatest successes during this time included the first commercially available diagnostic test for Epstein-Barr virus, better known as the virus that causes mononucleosis.
  • USANA pays. In addition to high-quality manufacturing and products that help people around the world maintain their health, USANA has paid out over $2.5 billion in commissions. That’s a big, impressive number that has meant change in the lives of so many working their own home-based business.

The pageant has begun! WOW! What an incredible experience this has been these past 4 days. I’ve made memories that will last a lifetime, friends that I will keep in touch with for a very long time and an experience unlike no other.

Our first official event during the pageant was the sponsor/welcome party! As I walked out of the elevator, the sparkle and glimmer from all 54 tiaras was mesmerizing. You could tell all the young ladies like myself were ecstatic. We were running all around talking to each other like we’ve known everyone for years! What a wonderful connection we all have. We were greeted by various sponsors and representatives. Here are some pictures from that night 🙂

Nuvango is a intricate clothing company, that also specializes in gels! They work with artists designs and art pieces to have it printed on clothing pieces! This drew me in, instantly! The table was covered in colours and the choices were endless. I was able to grab myself a pair of leggings, which i fell in love with immediately! We were also lucky enough to get a tour around the Nuvango headquarters. What an eye opener it sure was for me. As you all should know by now, that I am in love with art. This was absolutely incredible! Thank you Nuvango.

I didn’t know there were so many styles and colours until i saw the table covered in them. It was such a hard decision on which one I wanted, but this is the one I chose and I couldn’t be more happy with my choice!

Bradlee Ryall Golf Academy

This beautiful green golfing community was a blast! I’ve never golfed before, and this was so much fun! I’ll definetly be doing more golfing activities. They taught us how to properly golf, and we got to try many different areas of golfing. If you’re curious about golfing and wonder where you could try it out, i highly recommend them!

Bata Shoe Museum

WOW! A dream come true! A museum all about shoes. This was every girls dream and it was amazing. We got to hold Shaq’s shoes, to the styles all throughout history. I think I can speak for all the delegates that this was worth the trip.
