MIST Toronto 2016 #MISTinthe6ix

Hello hello!

I hope you are all doing well!
I’m currently sitting on the couch, wrapped in a blanket, with a tissue box and plastic bag next to me 😷 So heads up in case this post is messy/grammatically incorrect/or all over the place. I knew if I didn’t post this tonight, my whole schedule will get messed up. So here’s a new post #HHSunday!

I’m here with my MIST 2016 blogpost!
This year, I was the Competitions Co-Manager for MIST Toronto. Last year I was a coordinator, so this year, I stepped up to the manager position. The competitions team is in charge of finding judges for the competitions, preparing all of the competition materials, ensuring the competitions run smoothly on the days of, and more. We are one of the largest teams on the overall Dream Team and we have a lot of work to do, before the weekend and during the tournament days.
I had a great team this year and an awesome Co-Manager, so thank you all for dealing with my stress and craziness!

Now, as the Dream Team,we have to dress professionally. But as HH, I have to dress stylish 😉
I went back and forth between many outfits and finally decided on these three.
Totally unintentionally, well partially, but I had a Pink and Black theme for all three days of MIST! 💕😎 I actually picked my outfit for Day 1 first, and then Day 3 – Awards next. I realized that both were Pink and Black, so I thought, if I could, I’d make the second day outfit pink and black as well. I actually ordered something, that wasn’t pink and black haha, because I ordered it before I realized this colour scheme, but it didn’t come in time. So I ended up wearing pink and black for Day 2 as well so I guess it all worked out!

Without further ado, here goes!

#HijabiHeroes – MIST Toronto 2016 Edition

Hello Hello!

I hope you are all doing well!
So I know I didn’t have a blogpost up for #HHSunday, but I told you I’d make up for it, and here I am.
This past weekend was MIST Toronto 2016!!

Last year, I did a whole post about MIST and this year, I’m back at it again 😉
Now, in this post, you might be wondering where my outfits are?! Don’t worry, they’re coming.
But, I wanted to do my #HijabiHeroes post first! A lot of the ladies featured in this post have made a significant impact on me, whether it’s mentoring me on my new position, laughing at my jokes, or just competing in MIST and making it the awesome organization it is. I really would not have had the experience I did if it weren’t for you all. So thank you.
As the whole #HijabiHeroes series is about giving back to all those who support me, it was only fittingĀ for this post to precede my own.

Alright, I can go on forever about why I love MIST and how amazing it is and how I just want to rewind back to Saturday morning, but I don’t want to cry….again…and again.

Quick disclaimers
1) I want to apologize if I didn’t include you in this post! I had planned to take a bunch of pictures, but I underestimated how busy I would be! If you ever want to be included in one of my #HH posts, please let me know!
