Today I’ll be talking about this detox program that I have just completed. If you've been following me on my social media, you would know that I have recently partnered up with SkinnyMint, to help support and guide those who want to kickstart a healthy regime !

A B O U T S K I N N Y M I N T

The SkinnyMint Teatox program is a program consisting of two special tea mixes blended by experts to achieve the best natural cleansing, energy boosting and detoxifying effects. Using only 100% natural and organic ingredients, SkinnyMint combines these ingredients for their maximum effect - this effect is known as food synergy. Not only do the different ingredients complement each other, they also are more potent together than they would be individually.

SkinnyMint truly believes that great and effective products don’t have to taste bad. Which is why they made sure to also include ingredients that are delicious and make the products as well rounded and tasty as they are.

I was lucky to be sponsored their 28 Day Teatox Program - consisting of 28 bags of Morning Boost blend to drink every morning and 14 bags of Night Cleanse blend to drink every other night. You will actually be surprised by how tasty these teas are.

Morning Boost is made by 8 super ingredients to boost your metabolism and prepare your body and soul for the day. Green Tea, Yerba Mate, Nettle Leaves, Dandelion, Guarana Fruit, Grapefruit Leaves, Strawberry and Pineapple. With these 8 super ingredients, the Morning Boost promises to increase energy level, reduce appetite and burns fat. Also, looking at the ingredients, can you imagine how fruity and refreshing the Morning Boost is ?

The Morning Boost, say the name suggests, kept my metabolism going on high even though I was not that active in the day and this alone is a plus point which helped alot in burning my calories throughout the day. Frankly speaking, I was skeptical about SkinnyMint initially. But after I completed the entire program, I could see that my tummy is slightly flatter and problems like water retention and bloatedness which I used to have, are now all gone.

Night Cleanse, likewise to the Morning Boost, also contains 8 super ingredients that helps to relax your body and maximize the cleansing while sleeping. Ginger Root, Orange Leaves, Lemongrass, Senna Leaves, Peppermint, Licorice Root, Hawthorn Berries and Psyllium Husk. And this composition is supposed to help detoxify, reduce bloating, boost immunity and improves our digestion.

❤❤❤

If you were to ask me, which one among the two do I prefer ? I would have to cast my vote to the Night Cleanse. Night Cleanse comes with a very citrus-y taste which I totally love and is addicted to. For those of you who have tried various laxative teas and realised it gives you the runs the entire day, I am telling you now that No, SkinnyMint will not cause you to have any diarrhea at all. SkinnyMint tea is extremely gentle on the stomach and I like the fact that I get to have get my system cleared without going through any pains. I also noticed that throughout the 28 days, I do not suffer as much water retention and stomach bloatedness as I used to.

So what are you waiting for ?

Start teatoxing with me today because it’s the best we can do for our body !



Till then, xoxo

BRUNCH AT ANTHESIS BOULANGERIE, BISTRO & CAFE

|PUBLISHED 21st June 2014

Weekends are especially awesome when you start the day off with a great meal and a fabulous company. Think. You worked for at least 8 hours a day from Monday to Friday, and finally comes the weekend where you can just sit back, chill and relax with the people close to your heart. How awesome is that ? Today I finally met my UOL girls to celebrate the June babies birthdays. I can never be more than thankful to have met all of them. Suk Mun, Jiamin, Ade and Jieting. We stood by each other during our three years of university life, and now that we have graduated for say, three years ? We are still make time for each other on all our birthdays no matter how busy our lives may get.

Anthesis is located along Robertson Quay and boy we had such a hard time locating the cafe ! We meet at Boat Quay station and took a cab down. But apparently both mine and Jieting's cab driver has no freaking clue where 86 Robertson Quay is. So the cab driver dropped us at M Hotel and we walk rounds and rounds, back and forth, before we finally found Anthesis. We remembered we need to cross a bridge to get to MerryMen or Toby's, which is near Anthesis. But us girls being girls, we crossed the wrong bridge !! So we went from quite-near to really-far from our destination. I almost killed myself cause I passed by the bridge so many times yet I didn't notice we could have just crossed the damn bridge.


But that aside, Anthesis a tiny little cafe, but I like it for its rustic and industrial feel. Anthesis serves an extremely modest menu, but all in all, food was really good and that totally made up for the entire bad location hunting process ! My initial plan was to try their muesli, but after all the walk, I knew I had to have something even more hearty.

My Breakfast, My Way


(Scrambled eggs, Sourdough bread, Smoked salmon, Sauteed mushrooms and grilled tomato with rocket salad)


(Sunny side ups, Sourdough bread, Sausage, Sauteed mushrooms and grilled tomato with rocket salad)

Eggs Duet


(Smoked salmon, Scrambled eggs, Mushroom frittata, Chipolata and Bacon)

And finally our traffic light Smoothies


L-R : Mixed Berries, Avocado, Mango and Chocolate

In general, I thought that the food was commendable, and definitely will pay a return visit in future ! I had many recommendations from friends to order the muesli so that will definitely be on my to-order list at Anthesis when I visit it again ! Now that I know my way there, I think it shouldn't be a problem already heh.



The sandals are so freaking pretty that I am gonna go get a pair myself too

DISCOVERING THE ULTIMATE TRANSFORMATION

|PUBLISHED 01st June 2014

Sorry guys I have been missing for so long. Weekdays are usually spent slogging away at the office while on weekends I just want to laze at home rather than turn on the laptop and blog. So pardon the mini MIA. You may like to check out my daily little happenings via my Instagram though.

I finally had the time to head down to iKon Salon to tame my tresses :D I always look forward to my salon visits because I know my hair will be well taken care of and I'll get treated like a queen and leave the salon feeling like a million dollars :DDD

I was battling with really bad spilt ends cause I haven't been conditioning my hair for almost 4 months so I was really excite when Mel contacted me to try out the new Kerasilk Keratin Treatment.

This Kerasilk Keratin Treatment by GoldWell is the first customizable long lasting 2 component keratin treatment with 100% perfect results. It helps to make unruly and frizzy hair manageable and can last for as long as 5 months !

The process involves selecting different Keratin Shape and Keratin Smooth according to my desired shaping and smoothing results. But of course, I left this extremely important decision to the ever-so-professional Mel. After having shampooed my hair with the Kerasilk Purifying Shampoo, my hair is sectioned off and the balm is then applied and allowed to sit for 15 minutes. My hair is then blown dry and flat-ironed. After a final wash with the Keratin Care Shampoo, the Kerasilk Sealing Serum is applied to seal the KeraShape technology.

And the end result ?

You might think it will be those stiff and artificial rebonded hair but NO, its like natural soft hair !!

I went in with some beggar looking hair... And walked out looking like a QUEEN !!
(No, not because the perm was bad but cause I didn't condition it at all for a good four months)



I am totally sold because my hair feels super duper soft and luxe after that !!

I am absolutely lost for words as to how much I love this treatment. Everyone who knows me long enough will know how much woes I faced with my hair my entire life. I have the craziest natural curls and I had such a headache maintaining them that I decided to perm them once and for all. If you can't get rid of it, you live with it. But now that I am introduced to this amazing treatment, I can finally have soft and straight hair again !!



Thank you iKon Salon and Mel for the pretty new hair !

Remember to call to book your appointment in advance !

Squat Challenge : Have you squat today ?



Happy Easter Everybody !

Today I wanted to share with you a new challenge I am trying out for the month of April. Well, we’ve all heard about it – the Lorna Jane Squat Challenge. I know we are already into the 3rd week of the month, but let's just get started and stay committed for the next 30 days. Starting with 30 squats, and each day we do more and more squats in an effort to tighten the bum and strengthen the legs.

Details of the challenge are in the image below. It looks pretty tough, but think firmer and perkier booty ! I have just completed my 30 squats for today. I did a variation squat though, Goblet Squat with a 2kg dumb bell. So who's with me ? Simply hash tag #mytaintedworldfitnessjourney on Instagram so I can follow you too !

Apart from working out, eating healthily is also good for the body. It makes you healthier, happier, and all around better about yourself. With the pre-wed shoot coming up, I am more bent on going through this entire fitness/happiness journey. My goal would be to get a toned and lean body and put only good foods into my body. I also aim to drink more water and avoid sugary food and drinks altogether - other than bbt which I will slowly try to quit.
As I try to lead a healthier lifestyle, I will keep you all updated with my fitness entries as well. I would also love if you guys could join me so that we can all motivate each other ! So grab a buddy now and don't forget to hash tag #mytaintedworldfitnessjourney ! Doing this together will make working out and eating healthier a lot easier. We can even share recipes and fitness routines with each other. I am so excited to see how this goes and I am hoping I will obtain what I want come March 2015.

Till then, xoxo
