Hi hi pretty ladies!
We hope you are having a lovely day/afternoon/ evening! So just recently we got to attend The body shop's Drops of youth event hosted by Gushcloud and to sum it up, it one of the best days that we've had in the year so far!
We were super thrilled that we'd get to be meeting one of our favourite beauty blogger / youtuber / makeup artist of all time, Roseanne Tang. We literally had one of those girly-squealing "OMG OMG OMG, IS THIS FOR REAL?! " moments when we received the email that we'd get the chance to meet her and it goes without saying that we had a smile plastered on our face for the rest of the day.
Our day started off at Amore Fitness to promote a healthy lifestyle that the body shop embraces within their drops of youth serum. Lately we've been gym and health nuts and were super excited to see what they had in store for us.
"Amore Fitness is Singapore's leading fitness and spa service provider committed to promoting and encouraging members of the public to attain a healthier lifestyle through a holistic approach to fitness and well-being."
We all got attend a Kick-boxing, Zumba & Stretch-fit class all put into one. We didn't have much time to take a photograph of our post-work out state but here's a our pre-work out OOTD.
Working up a sweat
If you follow us over on our instagram page (@samanthashley_), you'd probaby have seen quite a number of photographs of us at zumba, pilates or yoga . There's just something about working out in classes together, it keeps you motivated and you'll be surprised how fast time goes by when you're in a class. I have Sam to thank for getting me into it!
Zumba and Kick-boxing is a great way to work up a sweat, and I kid you not, 30 minutes into the workout, we had sweat beads rolling off our faces and our cheeks were flushed red. As we were all incredibly active, I did not manage to take a photograph of us doing Zumba / Kick-boxing (Though I'm sure it would be a blur due to the pace we were all moving at) , but here are some photographs of us doing Stretch-fit!
Stretch-fit is a new class that's combination of Pilates & Yoga, the perfect way to wind down or to build balance after an incredibly active 40 minutes filled with side-sweeping, throwing punches and moving our bodies to the beat earlier on.
There's was something about stretching out our muscles, being able to clear our mind and focus on our breathing that really soothes a person. Above shows one of the many stretches that we performed to unwind from our crazy cardio session.
All sweaty and flushed, here's a group photograph of all the bloggers & readers that attened the entire event! Thank you to Amore fitness and our enthusiastic instructor for a really amazing class.

After our workout, all of us headed to the Yellow cup coffee at havelock road. It's a nice little coffee shop that's new york themed, with the the new york skyline and the statue of liberty stenciled along the walls of the cafe. They serve a decent selection of danish pastries and torte's to go along with your coffee, so here's a little look at what we had :)
The torte's (A denser version of a your typical muffin) they had to offer came in all sorts of flavours, In order, Apple, chocolate, banana and ginger bread which was a hot favourite at our table.
Of course, we had to try their latte's! Doesn't the latte art in Roseanne's drink look like Ted?! If you've seen several other's blogger's photographs of their latte's you'll know we all got different latte art's in our drinks which were super neat. If I'm not wrong, there was even a latte art of a peacock in Shine's latte!
Here we are with the lovely and bubbly, Roseanne Tang. We were starstruck and it was hard to believe that we'd just spent a day with her. We've been reading her blog/ youtube for a really long time and would never have imagined that years down the line we'd get to meet her and hang out with her like we did today.
We also got to meet fellow beauty bloggers Michelle & Zoe! We had such a lovely time talking about all sorts of things, skincare, food , youtube and it always feels amazing to have this instant chemistry with people who share the same interest as we do.
A key ingredient in the Drops of youth, criste-marine, is the unique plant cell that is known to be able to sustain itself by absorbing nutrients from the sea and high mists. This is what makes it one of the most sought after skin care ingredients of the 21st century.
We also received a goodie bag with some body shop treats, amore fitness passes and of course the Nutriganics Drops of youth! cannot wait to give this a try and let you guys know more how it fairs in a review post in about a week or so ! *fingers crossed* it works out well!
We had such a lovely day out meeting the Gushcloud bloggers and making new friends! Everyone was super friendly and words honestly cannot truly describe how much fun we had today. A huge thank you goes out to Roseanne for giving us this opportunity and to Gushcloud and The Body Shop Singapore for organising an incredibly fun packed day!
Until next time,
Have a great weekend!
