beautifulMoms Private Event by Mustela & Spring Maternity [ Giveaway Completed! ]

Just slightly before I wrote the story of why I breastfeed for 28 months (my other breastfeeding posts here), Josephine of Mustela contacted me to check if I’d like to share my breastfeeding experience with soon-to-be mothers who won invites through lucky draw to attend the beautifulMoms Private Event by Mustela & Spring Maternity. I was happy to agree.

At the last Mustela Event I attended, I was already saying that I love the lanyard they gave us…

The event started with a sharing session by Denise, founder of Mustela Singapore. She shared about skincare concerns during pregnancy / postpartum and dished out tips on how to care for your skin and breasts during breastfeeding.

Who better to guide us on how to use Mustela skincare (why I’m a Mustela fan here) to feel good in our skin than Denise herself?

Next, we were treated to some fashion tips  Danielle of Spring Maternity, who also introduced Spring Maternity’s latest Summer Blue Collection.

Danielle of Spring Maternity. I like how she dresses herself.
Here, Danielle is demonstrating a pretty ingenious piece from Spring Maternity. A cardigan which can double up as a nursing shaw – There is a build in magnet at the shoulder where the cardigan flap can be quickly secured.
Guess what I saw? 70% off Spring Maternity wear, totally worth it!

Next up, it was time for us to share our personal experiences with moms to be at the event. Ms Fonnie Lo (Senior Manager, TMC ParentCraft Services), who is a lactation consultant, was also there as a resource for attendees to speak with.

Me looking pretty serious here. I really wanted to listen to the concerns that was shared and the questions that were asked and try to see if I can help in any way. Breastfeeding is a journey that needs support. I received loads of support myself and will pay it forward any chance I have.

Sharing by Thomson Baby about nutritional needs during confinement & food tasting

Me searching my memory for related information while speaking. If you look at our postures, you’d see how it’s like a chat session between girlfriends. I hope we helped.

I thought that the breastfeeding sharing session would be my favourite part of the event, but boy was I wrong. Ms Carolynne Ng, Project Manager from Thomson Medical Centre (TMC) spoke to us on the importance of eating well during the confinement and introduced TMC’s confinement food delivery services.

Us listening to Carolyn. Beverly and Celestia are ever ready for the camera.
I cannot lie, the whole time I was quite distracted because I couldn’t wait to EAT!!! Confinement is not much fun but the best thing about it is the nourishing food you get to eat!
Serene and I felt very at home at the event, we went for 2nd / 3rd helpings of the vinegar pork trotter. I miss this dish sooooo much!

As part of their prize for winning the invites, lucky moms-to-be received a mini photoshoot at the beautifulMoms event!

Behind the scene. I really like the disposition of Era, the photographer from Cottony Photography (Website | Facebook). Having a photographer who is comfortable to work with makes subjects relax, that’ll give you more natural photos!

A photo contest was held on on Mustela Singapore’s Facebook (the winner has been announced!) where voters stand a chance to win Mustela’s limited edition Musti bear and Eau De Soin baby fragrance.

Before we left, we each received a bag filled with goodies! This is what’s left of mine, I lost all the vouchers in the goodie bag because I diligently transferred them to my wallet (which I lost) shortly after the event. :(

I have a friend who won two of Mustela’s Musti limited edition bears and they are so cute! I was lemming for them when she showed me. Lo and behold! Mustela was so kind to include it in our goodie bags!
