In all the hubbub of pre-TIFF madness, it was such a pleasure to head to the 54th floor penthouse of 16 Harbour Street for the 5th Annual Bask-It-Style event for TIFF 2013. The views of the city and the products were fabulous enough that even the most celebrated of celebrities coming into town would have felt totally at home there. The open, bright space was given a modern-meets-rustic feel by Designs by the Yard and Chique and Unique Home Staging. Among the goodies on-hand were a much appreciated glass of Wolf Blass Yellow Label, which is releasing an exclusive bottle of Shiraz Grenache Mourvèdre for TIFF 2013. Also around was an exciting re-launch of Mary Kay cosmetics (not just for mummy anymore!) and some super yummy gluten-free treats from All But Gluten. Overall, such a welcome reprieve from all the hustle and bustle of the moment and we are so glad we went!
