Basking In #BackItStyle2019 – Toronto’s Most Experienced TIFF Gifting Lounge

They always say you’re not supposed to pick favourites. Don’t say the word best. Don’t prioritize one experience over others.. but sometimes I have to disagree. I’ve attend a lot of TIFF gifting lounges and celebrity experiences in my career as a blogger – and most of them have been spectacular experiences leaving me spoiled and feeling appreciated for the work I do.

But if I’m being 100% honest, few have the experience or the power of GLO Communications and their #BaskItStyle2019 gifting lounge. Bringing together 20 of the most influential and innovative brands of the year, I cannot wait to bring you BTS in real time on our social media amid the excitement of The Toronto International Film Festival during our #TIFF19 coverage.

The Places & Faces of TIFF 2019

“Life Finds A Way”

The year is 1993 and I am ten years old. In grade five, I ask my parents if I can go to a movie with my best friend at the theatre which is a half an hour drive, and am shocked when they give me permission to go at 8pm on a school night. Feeling like a cool teenager, I prepare myself for one of the most exciting nights that I will always remember. Looking back now, that same excitement still happens when I go see a film that I am looking forward to. I guess I never lost my love of cinema and it seems as though that memorable night 25 years ago has come full circle. All these years later, as I prepare to go see Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park tonight at TIFF Lightbox, I am most excited about the upcoming series which starts on December 21st just in time for the holidays. One of the most influential directors of all time is being featured over the holidays with some of his most iconic films and I cannot wait to buy tickets to bring my friends and family over the holidays in between dinner parties and gift wrapping!  Continue reading ““Life Finds A Way””
