[event/workshop] Wellness Day Out + Beauty Secrets from the Kitchen

The Wellness Insider is Singapore's first Wellness platform that promotes body confidence, and it was started in October 2016. This was the first time they had launched a 'Wellness Day Out', which was a 3 day holistic wellness festival which comprises of a series of workshops on fitness, beauty and health. The festival helped the public better understand what a healthy body is, and to gain confidence in the way one looks and feels!




Thanks to Ms Melissa Fann, who is the founder of The Wellness Insider for the lovely invite! I was delightful to attend the same event as my fitness buddy Tracy, and we had so much fun hanging out together!


The inaugural Wellness Day Out was running from the 23rd to 25th June 2017, and it was held at the basement event space of Capitol Piazza. There was a Wellness Bazaar with stalls selling fitness apparel, health food, and organic products. Other attraction ranged from a Children's play section, and a music performance by local musicians!







I attended the 'Beauty Secrets from the Kitchen' at Wellness Day Out, and this workshop taught us how to prepare a quick and healthy meal that will help to boost up our immunity system and to take care of our skin in order to look youthful! 


After the talk by the dietitian, we were treated to a lunch session by YOLO! Healthy food does not means just having Salads! YOLO gave us other alternatives that were tasty and were good for health!


 I had Peranakan Curry with Brown Rice, and it was an uber tasty, yet a simple healthy take-away meal! Thanks for the lovely lunch treat! 


The event also marked the launch of the Wellness Subscription Box which was done in partnership with social enterprise, Euforia Singapore, and part of the profits from the sale of The Wellness Subscription Box will go to charity! 

Each Wellness Box contain products such as perfumes, healthy food, sample beauty products and spa vouchers. The sale of the subscription box is priced at SGD20, and is now available at The Wellness Insider's Online Store.


Take a peek at the contents of the box! 

Cocomax Coconut Water was pretty good and quenched my thirst well! 

Coco Veda, a brand from The Philippines also sponsored some trial-sized coconut products that were beneficial for hair and skin! 

I was happy to receive a packet of healthy Hom Mali Mixed Brown and Red Rice from Naturel which contains more vitamins and minerals as compared to white or brown rice. Naturel 100% Organic Hom Mali Mixed Brown and Red Rice is endorsed with a Healthier Choice symbol by the Singapore Health Promotion Board. 

A shoutout to Jetaime Perfumery, Blended Singapore and 100% Pure for the beauty products trial try-outs!
