Lounging with Steven Stewart

A dramatic statement is made with the addition of black and white embellished pillows against a creamy light coloured sofa. Its simplicity lends a lush feeling to the living room.

Dabble Digs TIFF

For the seventh year in a row, rock-it promotions hosted the Tastemakers lounge, the largest Canadian gifting suite hosted during the Toronto International Film Festival. Stars like Scott Speedman, Matt Dusk, Russell Peters, Geoffrey Rush, Mary Murphy and more took a walk through the suite at the Intercontinental Hotel in Toronto to take home great Canadian goods.

Dabble stopped by to see what design, travel and food products the celebrities were coveting.

Design

Sharpie showcased their new bright 80’s themed colours, perfect for Festival autographs.

The new Sharpie gel highlighter was a huge crowd pleaser as the new gel substance ensures the highlighter won’t dry out! You’ll want to make sure you have this highlighter in your home office.

It was particularly enjoyable trying out Cilque [silk]. This Canadian line of 100% silk bedding is a perfect pause from the flurry of The Festival.

Travel

ClarityOne showcased their earbuds with built-in PureSound processors. These earbuds are perfect for travel as they come in a durable travel case and boast 3D quality sound.

Another lounge favourite was Bobble, a resilient, reusable and stylish water bottle that is the perfect accessory when traveling. The built in filter creates the equivalent of 300 filtered water bottles- a great eco friendly bottle in several stylish colours.

Food

For guilt free snacking during The Festival, Popchipswere on hand. Made with natural ingredients (and less than half the fat of fried chips), at only 100 calories per bag, they are the perfect on the go snack!

The busy days during The Festival leave little downtime, but there’s always a few minutes for a little indulgence. Sourced from around the globe, the new range of PC ae black label products include hundreds of incredible foods and flavours including oils and vinegars, confectionary items, pasta, sauces, marinades and more.
