4 More Reasons Why TIFF Swag is the Best (Part 2)

September 14, 2015

tiffIt’s all about the swag bag, baby. TIFF is in full swing and we’re bringing you some of our favourite picks from the best gift lounges in town … like Tastemakers, which over the past 11 years, has rolled out the #starsonstripes carpet for such bold-faced names as Brad Pitt, Frieda Pinto and Harvey Weinstein. This year, festival A-listers are being treated to boots, beauty and beverages in a swish suite at the InterContinental Hotel.

After another long day being fabulous, every major leaguer needs some Zen. Newly launched and local, Sahajan products nourish hair and skin using traditional Ayurvedic remedies. While Julianne Moore probably doesn’t need Restorative Eye Cream (given that she’s been cryogenically frozen) she’ll like that it’s all-natural, organic and non-GMO. So do we.

tiffChiro to the stars Liza Egbogah won’t name names but, word has it, her digits are on more than one lead player’s speed dial. Using a glorious combo of physiotherapy, massage and muscle work, this miracle-worker might get her magic hands on the aches and pains of Ryan Reynolds and Liam Hemsworth as they breeze through the city.

tiffBefore Blake and Gwen started getting snapped wearing them, Sorel boots were just plain ol’ galoshes. Now they’re a Hollywood fashion statement (thank goodness). After conquering autumn with chic wedge booties, Sorel has put a stylish spin on the heavy winter parka. We can already picture Rachel McAdams biking around town pretending to be an Average Joe in the cable-quilted Alwyn Down Cape.

tiffWe’re calling it. Martinis and champagne cocktails are over; 2015 is the year of the cider. Caledon-based Pommies has just released a can of Farmhouse Cider that’s dry, vegan, gluten-free and made using a blend of five Ontario-grown apples. Pair it with a nice piece of Stilton and hope that Eddie Redmayne will be forgiving about the name.
