The Tastemakers Lounge has always been about putting mostly Canadian brands in the hands of the stars - which this year includes: Seventh Generation home products (the lavender detergent smells heavenly!), Cake Beauty Be Delectable Coconut & Cream Hand Cream and The Real Collective apparel.
A couple of my favourite products this year were of the eating variety including Awake Caffeinated Chocolate, perfect for me because I don't like coffee but sometimes enjoy staying awake and Pop Chips Katy's Kettle Corn Chips - both salty and sweet which I love and lacking the styrofoam taste/texture that many of these "healthy" chips have!
If that all wasn't enough there were also Alto Collective accessories, Bobble refillable bottles and limited edition Jessica Jensen totes! No wonder the stars always look exhausted, good thing they have handlers to carry all this stuff for them!
Lisamarie - the happiest day of my life was the day Sephora opened it's first store in Canada (thankfully in Toronto), second happiest day was before this when Sephora finally started shipping to Canada, third I guess would be my wedding day (but don't tell my husband where he ranks please!)
*** Christelle - I enjoy shoe shopping and drinking martinis...preferably at the same time!
