TIFF 2017 made bearable thanks to the Essentials Lounge 8!

Celebrity hunting is hard work, don't let anyone tell you different - but it's made a bit easier after some pampering time at this year's Essentials Lounge 8 - George Clooney won't be able to resist me now!
First they got me smelling great for George with Michael Kors latest offering, Sexy Ruby (100ml EDP - $135) - a modern chypre scent inspired by the unique link between seduction, strength and glamour - where fantasy meets femininity and a woman is her sexiest.
Chasing George will be so much easier in a pair of the new Keds x Rifle Paper Co kicks! The bright orange Triple Decker Birch slip ons ($90) make me happy just looking at them!
SkinCeuticals got me glowing with a quickie peel and a re-introduction to C E Ferulic (30ml - $170) - a daytime vitamin C serum that delivers advanced environmental protection and improves the appearance of lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness and brightens skin's complexion. Available at and select medi-spas and dermatologists.
I admired the Tweezerman Rose Gold collection and scored a pair of personalized tweezers that are also pink - my husband won't be able to get away with stealing mine anymore! Available at
Dior made me totally kissable by hooking me up with their new Addict Lipstick ($35) - a breakthrough creation of a lipstick that boasts a hydra-gel core with a top coat effect for sensational mirror shine. Concentrated in the shape of a CD at the center, the ultra-moisturizing soft core runs the full length of the stick - I love the Must-Have shade, a raspberry pink shimmer! Available at Dior counters across Canada.
L'Oréal was showing off their latest collection of super moisturizing hair products - Ever Creme - with a Deep Nourish Shampoo ($8.97), Conditioner ($8.97) and Renourishing Butter ($12.96) - for locks George will be dying to run his fingers through! Available at drug and mass retailers across Canada.
And so you don't get blinded by the bright lights of Hollywood and forget where you came from, Tuck Shop Trading Company was on hand to remind us with their Wool Ball Caps ($48) bearing the name of Toronto neighbourhoods in the authentic, exclusive Toronto subway font! Available for retail at Tuck Shop Trading Co. (1226 Yonge St.) or online at
And if I don't track George down, I'll be able to deliciously eat my feelings thanks to Green & Black’s organic chocolate bars (100g - $4.25) are made with hand-selected, ethically sourced cocoa beans for a truly premium chocolate experience. Available in 10 unique flavours.

But don't worry George, I haven't given up yet!
