Whoa. It’s here. Today might busiest day in my 2012 calendar. Not. Even. Kidding. If I can make all my appointments and events I will question my humanity. Am I robot/alien? You will never know. (Shhh you in the back there, keep your secrets!)
TIFF Cupcakes by Le Dolci
I have so much gratitude to give for my sister being PA (Production Assistant) on my show today, BMW sponsoring drivers for our Fashion’s Night Out team, tech related media interview in the AM, so may awesome events, my hair growing (don’t laugh), having my nails done (this is serious), and my bestie Lozzie Lauren O’Nizz being invited to all the same things as me. Thank you universe.

Yesterday I went to media day at the TIFF Tastemakers Lounge put on by Rock-It Promo and I was SPOILED. Rotten! TIFF is truly more fun than a birthday or holidays because all the media friends are out, everyone is receiving gifts, and celebrating. Films take the first place for TIFF but trust me that fashion is a verrrrry close second.
This is the eighth annual Tastemakers Lounge, it’s a Canadian gifting suite hosted during the Toronto International Film Festival. It brings local and international guests to indulge in exceptional products that Tastemakers Lounge is known for. This was my third year and perhaps the best!
Scroll my Instagram Photos:
This is a sample (yes, really) of what celebrities will be getting at the Tastemakers Lounge this year. I feel a bit bad showing off but I made a care package for Barbie, gave a Le Dolci cupcake to the hotel concierge, Pop Chips to my concierge, and will treat Mum & Jenie too.
Some of my favs are the zillion nail designs from Kiss Products, amazing arc touch mouse from Yorkdale/Microsoft (that I am now using), 4 scents + oil from Demeter Fragrance Bar, new bra & knickers (I picked red hot!) from LaSensa w/ $75 gift cards, and Anne Taylor silver jewel bracelet. I actually put the bracelet on during the Anne Taylor preview a month ago and Instagrammed it. I love documenting.
- Participants in the Tastemakers lounge this year are: @YorkdaleStyle, @LaSenza, @teaemporium, @KissProducts, @waterbobble, @JohnAllans, @DemeterCEO, @popchipsTO, @LeDolci, @iheartmeandyou, @EmjoiMICROPedi, @AnneTaylor #IndeedLabs #kimberleysown, #vivscal
I had about and hour after the Lounge to pop home and write today’s episode of THIS on Coral that will come out tomorrow. I’m filming in Yorkville with my sister 1-4pm if you want to come by and be on the show/say hi.
Next stop was Swarovski Red Carpet and the brand new James Bond 007 Collection. Check out the Octopussy earrings and charm! Gimme. Want, gah. The model is the ACTUAL Bond Girl. So hot.
The crew at the Swarovski Suite wasn’t that big when I was there and we’re all friends so I made everyone pose for a school photo. I thought it was cute. I’m brining a snob free attitude to the fashion world one preview at a time. Look at us all. Love it. The new Shangri-La is nice too.
As I was leaving I though about how I used to work in the building behind this photo as a Corporate IT Recruiter staffing the IT departments of CGI Canada, Telus, Rogers, SunLife etc. I wore a suit to the office every day and had a meeting at 8am every single morning. My life has changed so much since then. You never know what is going to happen but if you stay true to your heart and your goals you can make anything happen. I hated that job and left to go work at Hemingways (the Kiwi bar) in Yorkville for a bit. Tomorrow I am filming my show in Yorkville. If you are reading this from your desk or mobile at school, remmeber that I wake up and go “omg THIS IS MY LIFE” almost every single day. You can have that too. Go get it.
Ok, now I shall take on the world. Here’s to an awesome day!
YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL!
