Christmas Giveaway: Professional Photos

A big congrats to Xavier Alexandre for winning yesterday's Hipster Giveaway! And thank you to everyone for your beautiful childhood memories; it's amazing how for children the smallest things make the biggest memories. Now onto a gift that can help to commemorate precious moments...

Today’s giveaway is extra close to our hearts. The Lausanne Guide friend and often-times photographer Gabriel Garcia has launched his own photography business here in town serving individuals, families and businesses with some absolutely gorgeous images from lifestyle photography to family portraits to weddings. And we would know because Gabriel’s stunning eye and artistic talent are behind several of our best posts including Meet the Makers (Nebuleuse and Dr. Gabs) as well as Meet Jaifa and our Photo of the Week series.

For The Lausanne Guide’s Holiday Giveaway, Gabriel is offering one lucky winner a 45 minute “mini-session” and 10 edited photos. This is a great chance to update the family photo album or get some professional shots of your business for your new website!

Visit his website for some inspiration as well as details about his style and philosophy and like his Facebook page for updates.

We adore Gabriel and are super excited that one of you will get to meet him too. So, you know the drill – leave your comment below telling us your opinion on the most photogenic place in Lausanne. Good luck!

[Disclaimer: Shooting location and date will be determined between Gabriel and the winner - it needs to be in the Lausanne area and easily accessible by public transportation.]

Christmas Giveaway: HIPSTER baby carrier by MiaMily

Welcome back to our second week of our Christmas Giveaway! We hope you guys are having as much fun as we are...and we have so many more goodies to share with you this week. Congratulations to Lauren for winning our giveaway for cocktails at Eat Me! Get in touch with us and we'll let you know how to claim your prize. Onto our next giveaway:

When we heard that fellow mother, or 'mompreneur' as like to call her, Cecilia had started a Kickstarter program to fund her baby carrier project, we were not only interested, but so excited to support this mission! Her project was fully funded in a matter of days, and now her baby carrier, the HIPSTER, is available to the world.

I have my own HIPSTER, and I must say, Violet prefers this carrier to the others we've tried. It's comfortable, sleek, and was obviously conceptualized and created by a mother (I love all of the extra features!). Cecilia is offering one lucky reader their very own HIPSTER ($169 retail value) to keep or give as a gift (the color will be selected by the brand). To win, share with us one of your favorite childhood memories. We will randomly select a winner tomorrow. Good luck!

Christmas Cocktail Recipe + Giveaway presented by Eat Me

Congratulations to Traci Doyle for winning yesterday’s Giveaway from Docteur Gabs! Send us an email at and we will hook you up with your prize.

The holidays are a festive time and as those of you who read this blog regularly will know already, we love to celebrate over cocktails. So we paid a visit to Serena and her beautiful Eat Me restaurant and cocktail lounge last week to get some wintertime spirit inspiration. We loved the new after-dinner drink debuting on their menu this season. It’s cozy and comforting; and the creamy frothed milk reminds us of the wintery mountains out our windows – so, we’ve affectionately referred to it as a Winter’s Peak.

Winter’s Peak
4 cl of vodka
2 cl of Kuhlua
1 cl of simple syrup
An espresso (one nespresso capsule will do the trick)

Shake well with ice. Strain the liquid into a glass. Top with foamed milk and dark chocolate shavings.

But if making your own cocktails isn’t your thing, fear not. Serena is inviting one lucky winner to enjoy two cocktails on the house! For a chance to win, just leave a comment below telling us your favorite winter drink.

A huge congrats to Jonas for winning FIVE BURRITO MENUS plus some swanky burrito gear from our favorite hermanos. Get in touch with us so we can let you know how to claim your prize! Now, onto our next incredible giveaway...

I think it's no secret that our quality of life is better for knowing this woman. Our New Year's resolution last year was to take our beauty regimen off of the back burner and pay attention to the details. Enter: Eleni. She managed to transform our unruly, over-plucked, under-grown brows into a beautiful and natural shape and now, my friends, she's offering one of her magical sessions to YOU (and gentlemen, this is for you too)!

To win, just tell us one of your New Year's Resolutions for 2015! We will randomly pick a winner and announce tomorrow along with our new giveaway. Bonne chance!
