Canadian Cheerleading Nationals 2013

By  |  0 Comments

You wonderful people who follow me on Facebook or Twitter already know that I spent the past weekend in Niagara Falls at the Canadian Cheerleading National Champions 2013.

I had two fabulous nieces competing with their elite gym Cheer Sport Sharks and having been to Nationals last year I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to attend again this time with an added purpose of promoting Innocent Illusion Makeup Artistry as well as cheering my two beautiful nieces on :)
Athletics with ages ranging from 6-25 years competed over 3 intense days in Niagara Falls, Ontario in two different performance venues.

Their intense routines consisted of tumbling, dance, jumps, cheers and stunting. It was all just AMAZING to watch.

Unfortunately, I’m too old to start cheerleading now and the opportunity to try it wasn’t available in Ireland when I grew up but it is an outstanding sport which I would definitely encourage every young person to try.

7 year old girls lift people their own weight & height at full arm stretch in the air over their head.


As you can imagine the friendships and the trust involved in being able to do this is so admirable. A necessary life skill in my opinion! 

While doing all this they also have to incorporate the infamous ‘Facials’ to score more points with the judges. It’s the cutest!

I cannot endorse this sport enough! I had an amazing weekend and I’m already looking forward to next year! (It will take that long to get rid of the glitter 😉 )


My own makeup for the weekend :) 

Stay beautiful,

Unhealthy obsession with all things fashion & beauty.
