This year’s Toronto International Film Festival was our busiest one to date as I’m sure you’ve seen in our round up posts that keep coming your way. For those of you who follow @DoTheDaniel on Twitter & Instagram, you would have seen that September 9th was one busy day. Attending pre-TIFF celebrity gifting lounges around the city, we felt like celebrities ourselves. I have to say that amid all the lounges, EGPR‘s Essentials Lounge 6ix took the cake for our favourite spot to be and be seen. Come and see why in our #DoTheDaniel round up!
Before I get ahead of myself, I should say that it was nice to see Julio for all of five minutes at #EssentialsLounge6ix. He also had a busy day on the 9th before the #TIFF15 madness, but alas we had opposing schedules. I found a photo of him (see below) enjoying himself as well. For his #FASHIONIGHTS roundup of the Essentials Lounge 6ix make sure to click here.
To give some context to the Essentials Lounge, it is not your conventional gifting lounge. Most of the amazing TIFF themed lounges run for the duration of the festival with celebrities and media visiting regularly. EGPR runs the Essentials Lounge for the media attending and covering the festival for one day only in hopes of getting us prepared for the hectic time.
“For the sixth consecutive year, EGPR and brand partners of the Essentials Lounge are committed to sending members of the press into the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) with the best possible odds of survival and recovery.”
In no particular order, brand included in this year’s #EssentialsLounge6ix were: Cake Beauty, Clarins Fragrance Group, Dior Beauty, Glaceau Smartwater, Knix Wear, Kosmea Australia, Krispy Kreme (hence the donut joke), Me.N.U Food Truck, Oats & Ivy, Polysporin, Saucony, Skinceuticals, & Vitaminwater
Each of them was on site to chat with, enjoy and try first hand. They were also included in the highly sought after Essentials Lounge survival bag that each attendee was lucky enough to take home. EGPR always has our backs for the best of the best during TIFF and that is just one of the reasons we love them!
Here on just a few of my favourite people also enjoying the experience thanks to EGPR.
