Inside the 2013 Essentials Lounge at Toronto's Templar Hotel. --EGPR/Arthur Mola
A star's visit to TIFF usually includes some big-ticket souvenirs: bangles and baubles and the occasional all-expense paid vacay they've picked up in any variety of gifting lounges. But some of the festival's most buzzed-about swag is too good to waste on Hollywood. EGPR's Essentials Lounge gifts media, not celebs, with must-have survival tools - the stuff they'll need (or just want) to make it through the festival in comfort and in style.
Want to feel like you, too, are "on the list?" You could win this year's Essentials Lounge Survival Kit.
Valued at $1,600, it takes two bags to hold all the amazingness. Inside, you'll find an HP Slate Tablet and the new Nike FuelBand. To look red-carpet ready, there are items from Aveda, Elizabeth Grant Skin Care, Hard Candy Cosmetics, Winks Eyelash Boutique, Be. Better, Dial, Soap & Glory, Creeds, Calvin Klein Underwear and Viviscal. To stay healthy 24/7, you'll find items from vitaminwater, Centrum, Tums, Moksha Yoga, OrderIt.ca, Ethical Bean Coffee, Sensodyne and teALCHEMY. And to survive two weeks in stilettos, there are goodies from MICRO Pedi, Elastoplast and Sorel.
