THROUGH THE LENS: Happy FIRST Birthday, SkinnyMint!


Hey everyone!

If you recall, I underwent a 28-day teatox programme earlier this year courtesy of SkinnyMint which saw me lose a total of 3kg by the end of it. I had never lost so much weight in such a short time (despite exercising regularly) and I am indebted to SkinnyMint for steering me towards leading a healthier lifestyle. Having gone below the 60kg mark, I am now more determined to maintain my lifestyle changes like consuming less refined grains such as rice and bread even after the completion of the programme. Judging from the reviews on Instagram (#skinnymint), the tea seems to be working remarkably well on many people! My boyfriend who witnessed my transformation was also convinced to try SkinnyMint 😀 And he’ll probably start teatoxing during his semester break.

Yay my chubby face

It has been a year since SkinnyMint set foot in the Singapore market and I was very honoured to be invited to their birthday party at Lantern@Fullerton Bay on 25 March 2015. It was cosy event graced by a few popular bloggers like Yan Kay Kay, who is also one of their ambassadors. I shall let the pictures take you through the party 🙂 Enjoy!

Makeup of the day. Toned it down a little out of respect for the passing of Singapore’s founding father, whose lying-in-state happened in the same week.

The appetisers served were really goooood although I felt a little queasy after downing a cup of cocktail (note to self: never drink alcohol on an empty stomach).

With the amazing Dee, Relationship Exec of SkinnyMint 🙂 The dress on me was an inspired Prabal Gurung piece (the one Kate Middleton wore for her Singapore visit in 2012) from Taobao! Cheap and good. Haha.

What’s in the goodie bag 😉 The one tied with ribbon is a pair of LuluLemon Wunder underpants – perfect for yoga and gym sessions! And I guess it’s about time I start teatoxing again. Woohoo thanks SkinnyMint for keeping me in shape. 😀

I’m not exactly the most sociable person around and I was very glad to have met so many amazing and friendly people at the party, especially those working for SkinnyMint, because they made me feel so much at ease. 😀 Of course, I also have to thank my boyfriend for networking on my behalf when I was trying to recover from the queasiness.

Those interested to try the 28-day Teatox programme may find out more about SkinnyMint here.

Thanks for reading! Stay tuned for more updates comin’ up 🙂
