The Toronto International Film Festival is always one of my favourite times of year. For the films, the celebrities, the excitement it brings to the city… all of it leaves me smiling and reminded why I love Toronto so much. Each year, we are blessed to be invited to some of the best celebrity gifting lounges to see how the other half lives. In these lounges, we can experience things that A-list stars will see and taste all while sharing it with you. Come and see what this year’s Tastemakers Lounge presented by Sorel and ELLE Canada was all about with DoTheDaniel.com!
Put on by our friends at Rock-It Promotions, Inc, the Tastemakers Lounge is one of the best there is. Take a look at last year’s to see what I mean. “Over the course of its eleven year tenure, Tastemakers has hosted and gifted many notable names including Woody Harrelson, Brad Pitt, Ellie Goulding, Ethan Hawke, Harvey Weinstein, Elisha Cuthbert, Sarah Polley, Kat Dennings, Freida Pinto and Samuel L. Jackson, among many others.”
This year’s lounge included some of the best brands Canada has to offer:
ELLE Canada: Canada’s leading fashion magazine, offered an intimate and interactive portrait studio on-site by veteran photographer Luis Mora. My goal is to one year achieve a level of celebrity that I am featured in this portrait studio! Click here to see some of the beautiful shots captured.
They also featured the latest technology from Samsung Canada with the Samsung VR GEAR 3D experience of their latest cover shoot. I was blown away… Now. The following will show a beautiful photo of my Elle Canada friends & I. Following, you see why people tell me I laugh like a Disney villain… so much fun! (Thanks for the video Noreen xo)
This makes me LOL! Love @dothedaniel checking out the @ellecanada 3D cover at the #tastemakers15 lounge #tff15 @samsungcanada #EC3D A video posted by Noreen Flanagan (@noreen_flanagan) on
Amid the above #Tastemakers15 moment (one of the best if I do say so myself), I also got to interact with (but not limited to) Sahajan, Rhone Valley Wines, Pommies Cider Co., The Rémy Cointreau Group, Tweezerman, Sorel & Hudson’s Bay!
Gift bags (packaged perfectly in an in iconic HBC striped tote bag) included the above mentioned and so much more. Truly an amazing experience and gifts for both Canadian and International guests who were so lucky to walk through the doors of Tastemakers Lounge presented by Sorel and ELLE Canada.
Take a look at some of the highlights from this year’s lounge:
“Tastemakers is proud to announce that a portion of the lounge’s proceeds will support SickKids Foundation. Inspiring communities to invest in scientific advances to improve the lives of children and their families around the world, SickKids Foundation raises funds on behalf of The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.”
