The three day swagerific, fun, hip lounge was at it again this year making guests feel glam and shaking things up with a DJ Series by 4AM DJ’s. As we mingled and tasted new food bites and cocktails, we discovered some fun new products. This lifestyle & hospitality destination for celebrities and tastemakers was positioned directly across from the iconic Egyptian Theatre on the forefront of Main Street in Park City, Utah. While temperatures were warmer than normal in the 30’s, guests could whip off their coats during the day and sample the endless array of treats.
Dove Hair Care was on hand to provide blowouts, haircuts, and styling services for the ladies while I watched many guys get sexy in the hair and beard trimming lounge. Gift bags included some fantastic Dove haircare products to keep your locks smooth and silky.
My favorite food bites samples included LUVO Food which is endorsed by many celebs like Derek Jeter and Jennifer Garner. Some of the most celebrated chefs in the industry are behind their culinary program which boasts nutrition and taste. These frozen meals consist of chicken chile verde, whole grain penne pasta with turkey meatballs, orange mango chicken, and so much more. The result is a menu that arrives at a fantastic flavor with wholesome, all natural ingredients and no artificial additives or preservatives. Take a LUVO Food meal home. Their goal is to make these meals affordable to all children in the USA.
Fun specialty drinks were being made by Eppa Organic Sangria crafted in Mendocino, California from certified organically-grown grapes and an innovative blend of real, organic superfruit juices including pomegranate, blueberry, blood orange and acai. As a result, the Sangria is antioxidant rich with two times the antioxidants compared to a glass of red wine. Eppa SupraFruta Sangria tasted so fresh over ice. You can just pour and drink or fill an ice filled pitcher with fresh fruit slices and allow friends to enjoy.
One of my favorite Sundance gifts were the stylish and warm Cat Footwear boots. From the tough workman style boots and old fashioned craftsmanship, to the dressier and more sophisticated leather ankle and knee high leather boots, the Cat (global footwear licensee of Caterpillar Inc.) was a hit with celebs.
Of course Sean John was back again supplying some of the coziest snow jackets around to keep VIPs comfortable and warm throughout the festival. Diddy’s new television network, Revolt TV, was on-site capturing all the entertainment action throughout the entire weekend.
Additional sponsors providing hospitality include: ExOfficio, Avocados from Mexico, L’Alpina Water, Altec Lansing, and Gardein.
We met some fun girls who gave me a love letter. Yes, Love Letters for Strangers. This concept to me is amazing and sweet and gives hope to all. Since many people miss out on the intimacy of a hand written letter, the founder tries to connect human beings, and to make this world of strangers seem a little less strange. Their concept is simple: Little notes (aka: Love Letters) are individually folded, decorated and written on with inspirational messages. Each love letter is has a unique personality and positive. They can be left for people to find (at a coffee shop or inside a book) or handed out to people (that you know or don’t know directly).
Highlights of the three day extravaganza included William H Macy taking a shameless swig of the good stuff, Cheryl Hines signing a T-shirt for Eppa Organic Sangria in support of Whole Planet Foundation, Sunglass sisters! Cheryl Hines and Molly Shannon looking shady (ha!) and Cheryl Hines telling Molly Shannon “let me see that THONG!”
Kate Hudson and Zach Braff celebrated their new movie, Wish I Was Here which Zach Braff co-wrote and directed. Kate said Sundance was a whirlwind for her. She came in on Friday night and is already leaving for LA on Saturday. Kellan Lutz used the TR Suites as a hangout for the later part of the afternoon sipping on Eppa Organic Sangria and Gardein Chicken Bites. Milles Teller enjoyed trying LUVO Food’s chocolate dessert. Ryan Rottman of the Lying Game picking ExOfficio boxers and good friend Kellan Lutz called these Lingerie for Men. Icon singer Taylor Dayne took a selfie of her picking out Sean John glasses. Taylor is said to perform for Luc Robitaille- The Celebrity Shootout 2014 on Sunday. Lover alert! Lance Bass and fiancé Michael Turchin fed Luvo Food healthy cuisines to one another. Wayne Newton signed a t-shirt for Eppa Organic Sangria in support of Whole Planet Foundation.
Holly Madison arrived to the Talent Resources suites with 9 month old daughter Rainbow. Strolling Rainbow into the suite Holly grew overwhelmed by the crowd and cameras flashing lights at the stroller, she walked out and left her hubby inside to choose a winter jacket by Sean Jean. Got BOOT-tay! A cute and pregnant Kendra Wilkinson attended the TR Suites to pick out a pair of brown CAT Footwear boots because she said, “I only packed black boots, HELP!” Altitude or morning sickness? Kendra knows what it means about keeping hydrated in Park City Utah’s high altitude as she chugged L’Alpina water.
