Diane and I did the rush again on Tuesday, taking a break on Monday to relax and maybe, just maybe to let our karma kick back in after Sunday when we just missed tickets to Half A Yellow Sun. We lined up, a full two hours in advance, for The Stag,
I popped into Stylist Box to see what they were up to for Tiff. Gail and Christian (disclosure, friends of mine) were dressing some of the celebs here for the festival.
I won’t go into what they were wearing – other people will do that. But I wanted to show this gorgeous piece of clothing from Masha Apparel. Since it’s getting colder, this is a fun way to cover your shoulders at parties. More fun than a cardigan.
Saturday was cool and very, very wet. Diane and I still decided to do the rush line for The Fifth Estate at the Winter Garden theatre which was interesting – I’ll talk more about that in my next Global blog. However, we’re smiling because we got these.
I’ve done the Toronto International Film Festival as accredited media when I was covering an entertainment maternity leave at Sympatico. It was fun and extremely tiring – our team worked for 11 days straight covering films, pressers and the parties. I slept for two days straight after the festival.
This year I decided to do it as a civilian – buy a ticket package, chose my films and line up with the crowd. No press screenings, no media pass, no nothing. Just lining up with the rest of Toronto. I did it with my friend, Diane, who wrote about the experience here.
I popped into the new Toronto Premium Outlet this weekend on my visit to my parents. Or rather, Dad dropped off my mother and me because parking was nuts. People were circling, looking for parking. They were paying $10 to park in an auto mechanic’s lot across the road or parking in the cemetery parking lot.
