Here's your weekly round up of events worth attending in Lausanne and the surrounding area...

On Tuesday, our friends at Wiine Me are hosting a tasting with Italian wines from the Giovanni Manzone domaine and bringing the winemaker with them! A great chance to meet the man behind the magic.

Also Tuesday, the Women's Business Society is hosting a networking lunch and seminar on personal branding.

What could be more romantic than an outdoor dinner and movie in the Parc de Mon Repos!? Saturday night's date has just been planned for you...

And last but certainly not least...Montreux Jazz kicks off this Friday night!!

Bon Weekend


How will you spend this weekend? We plan to take things slow after a busy week. Don't forget about some of the events happening this weekend.  Have a good one, Lausanne!

As usual, here's some fun stuff from around the web:


Vacation photo time lapse.

A town in Sicily is giving away houses...

Save the carousel in Ouchy!

Made us laugh.

A great summer bag.

Jokes told by kids that are so bad they're hilarious.

Our go-to product for that beach hair look (and it smells amazing).

The Mondial du Chasselas is this Saturday in Aigle!

Actually fascinating--we have a friend who can't eat coriander/cilantro because of this.

Don't want to lose Uber in Lausanne? Sign the petition now.

A fun way to display your plants.

For fathers who want their children to stay close...ha.

A perfect gift for those neuroscientists (or brain geeks) in your life!

Here's one for the "it's about damn time" category.

Because nothing is cuter than a baby in dungarees (and they're 50% off!).

Speaking of sales, local jewelry designer Baies d'Erelle is having a big one and this necklace is striking.

And just in case you've had a hard week...there's this.

Mon Jardin Secret

Sébastien, the founder and hot bowl master

It's no secret...not anymore at least. Just at the bottom of the stairway next to Luncheonette sits Lausanne's first exclusively gluten-free lunch spot that even gluten-lovers will appreciate. Mon Jardin Secret, started by the same inventive minds that brought you Luncheonette, is an oasis from the greasy fast lunch food that we are all too familiar with.

Summer Shoes


With summer here, we decided to put together a list of shoes that are not only seasonally appropriate, but can master the cobblestoned hilly streets of Lausanne (and beyond!). If you have any tried-and-true shoes that you swear by, please let us know! We are always on the lookout for fashionable and functional.

June 22 - 28, 2015

Photo cred: Anne-Laure Lechat, for Cully Classique

What a weekend! We had the great pleasure of attending a free and paying concert at the Cully Classique festival. We started Lakeside with a folk classical concert while enjoying a picnic of great food and wine and then moved indoors for a romantic, candlelit nocturne at 10:30pm. The festival is on all week and we highly recommend if you are looking for a relaxing way to enjoy the beautiful weather. It's great for kids too! Despite the elegant music and setting, the ambiance remains laid back and friendly.

If classical music isn't your thing, check out what else is on in Lausanne this week...

Bon Weekend

Our friend Gabriel Garcia Marengo is crazy talented - and today is his BIRTHDAY! We love you Gabriel!

It's the weekeeeend! And boy, do we ever need it this week. We're planning to spend our days at music festivals, drinking beer and hanging out with the people we love. What more could you ask for from the best two days of the week?

As per usual, we've put together a list for you of things that caught our attention on the internet this week...

Lausanne Hotel: Staycation at Maison d'Igor in Morges



It’s that time of year where the office small talk almost invariably arrives at the question of summer escapes, exotic destinations and relaxation – it’s vacation time! But every year the same little remorse nags at us as we book our flights and pack our suitcases, the teal-colored hue of the Lake and the soaring mountain pastures just a glance out our windows…

Why all this going, people?!

Travel By Cocktails @ The Beau-Rivage Palace


It was one of those early summer nights where the air had a slight hot stickiness to it, but every once in awhile the breeze would bring refreshing relief. Walking onto the the Bar's terrace, we were immediately greeted by a smooth riff by the live saxophonist; the melody then broke into an energetic rendition of Bob Marley's One Love and we took a look around: is this really Lausanne? Welcome to Travel by Cocktails at the Beau-Rivage Palace. 

Here are some more photos of our girls' night:
