Style Days of Christmas: Nokia Lumia 1020 Giveaway

STYLEDAYS OF CHRISTMAS 12 (1)

I can’t believe that it’s the final day of our Style Days of Christmas Giveaways already! While I am sad to stop pretending to be Santa (or Oprah!), I do hope that you enjoyed the giveaways, and I wish you all the best of luck in snagging some of the sweet prizes we had lined up. But of course, not before you enter our final giveaway of the season – and as you can probably already tell, it’s a good one!

Up for grabs on Day 12 of #SDOC13 is an amazing Nokia Lumia 1020 smartphone* (valued at 700). If you still haven’t checked one out, it’s a must! At the launch party a few months ago, I learned that no other smartphone can really compare when it comes to the camera specs of Nokia Lumia 1020. While I am definitely a DSLR girl, as a blogger, taking photos on the go is often my reality, so having a good phone camera is crucial, and with a 41 megapixel camera sensor, optical image stabilization, Full HD video and Nokia Rich Recording, it’s pretty safe to say that Nokia Lumia 1020 is as good as it gets when it comes to smartphone photography (and videography too!). But that’s not all! Powered by Windows Phone 8, Nokia Lumia 1020 comes with MS Office and all the unique Lumia features like Nokia Music and free voice-guided navigation.

Sounds like a superphone you’d like to own? Enter below to win one this holiday season!

We are almost at the end of our Style Days of Christmas Giveaways run, and while I don’t play favourites with my giveaways, today’s prize is going to be simply amazing for the holidays! As a Canon Canada Blogtography ambassador I take A LOT of photos daily, but the sad thing is, most of those images stay on their SD cards – never printed out, never framed. Well, no more! Thanks to Canon Canada, I am now a proud owner of the amazingly compact wireless Canon SELPHY CP900 printer! Instead of letting the memorable moments languish on a slew of memory sticks, I am now a printing ninja – printing everything in sight! Warning: owning a wireless printer may or may not be incredibly addictive!

So, what’s in it for you? Today, I’d like one of my amazing readers to win a SELPHY of their own! You can use it as a photobooth printer at your holiday parties (set up is a breeze!), to print photos of those family get-togethers, or simply to make sure that all of your fond memories can be proudly displayed in your home instead of your computer. The prize pack (valued at $244) will also include some extra paper and ink to get you started! Sounds good? Enter the giveaway after the jump!

Style Days of Christmas: Gap Canada Giveaway

style-days-of-christmas-gap-giveaway

I have a very soft spot for Gap and their jeans. Every year I pick up a new pair (or a couple) and end up wearing them obsessively. This season, I had a particularly tough time choosing…there are velvet skinnies that look luxurious and sleek, there’s a cool-looking camo pair, fun snakeskin print pair, one with patches…and that’s on top of all the “regular” pairs that are available.  And the best thing is – Gap jeans are super flattering, but comfy too. A perfect combination of function and style!

So because I love Gap and I love my readers, today we’ll be giving away not one, but TWO pairs of Gap jeans of your choice! Perhaps a pair for yourself, and a pair for the BFF? Or a pair for yourself and a pair for your mom? Or perhaps…both pairs for yourself? Either way, we won’t judge!

But that’s not all! Because you’ve been so awesome to us this year, today’s gift pack will also include two adorable leather mini clutches, making today’s giveaway worth $230!

Style Days of Christmas: Dolce & Gabbana The One Gift Set

dolce-gabbana-the-one-limited-edition-giveaway

I can’t believe we are already on Day 8 of Style Days of Christmas Giveaways! Time really does fly. Today’s amazing prize is a very special limited edition Dolce & Gabbana The One perfume and cologne gift set* (valued at $224) – a perfect luxurious prezzie for a sophisticated lady (and gent) on your shopping list.

With top notes of bergamot, mandarin, lychee, and peach, The One perfume is rich without feeling overbearing, feminine, sensuous, and irresistible. All you need is a little dab, and you won’t be able to stop smelling yourself all day. Recently, I’ve started to move away from the girly fragrances I used to be drawn to in my early twenties, and Dolce & Gabbana The One is now my go-to scent for the fall and winter months.

The One for Men cologne is also very alluring. The scent is powerful and spicy, with hints of cedar and tobacco. It aims to be “not a banal classic, but a classic men’s fragrance that would last for years and be the type of scent that women adore”. From this woman’s POV, this is indeed The One. I love the smell of this cologne, and I am sure the special guy in your life will love it too.

Sounds like something you’d like to see under your Christmas tree? Enter the giveaway below!

Style Days of Christmas: SodaStream Source Giveaway

STYLEDAYS OF CHRISTMAS 5 (1)

A few months ago I got my hands on a SodaStream machine, and it changed my life. Ok, maybe it didn’t really change my life, but it certainly changed the way le bf and I consume soft drinks and host. We no longer buy sparkling water and pop – both of those are easily made at home, using less sugar, and wasting less bottles. Entertaining is now a breeze – with fun cocktail mixes at the ready, I am able to whip up a killer mojito in no time. And it sure looks damn sleek on our kitchen counter!

In June I also proclaimed that a SodaStream machine would make a perfect gift for anyone and for any occasion, and I still stand by that statement. It’s one of those things that you never knew you needed, but once you get your hands on one – you will wonder how you ever lived without it. It’s that good. So, because I love this product so much and want you to experience the SodaStream life (to hydrate, enjoy yummy cocktails, or drink guilt-free soda), I partnered up with SodaStream Canada to give away an amazing gift pack (valued at $202), which includes the following:

- SodaStream Source machine
- Ocean Spray syrups (Cranberry, Cranberry Raspberry, and Cranberry)
- Cola and Diet Cola syrups
- Orange and Grapefruit syrups
