Feeling the Magic of The Toronto Film Festival (TIFF 2011)
Between movie screenings, star gazing, and a few chance meetings with fellow Tweeps, this weekend is going to be busy and exhilarating. Going on a pauper’s budget this year is going to be difficult. We have to ensure that we are ready for any event that comes our way.
This year, I have been fortunate. I have won tickets to The Descendants, starring George Clooney (Humina Humina), from Diet Coke. As well, I have won tickets to Hick, starring Blake Lively. I have also been invited to the Diet Coke Gala, which appears to be an anticipated event by many. So who’s going?
I can’t wait to write about my favorite time of year. To share the goodness in life with others is truly a gift. We spend so much time dwelling over the mundane every day hurdles, that the good stuff needs to be focused on even more so.
Here’s to party rocking the weekend! CHEERS!
The celebs can party where they may. but Trina and TIFF are here to stay.
