Cocktail Recipes with Lipton

Just the other day, George Young invited us to his house for a Lipton tea party. 
When there's tea and canapes in the house, there'll be good conversations.
But when you combine tea AND alcohol together, you get many possibili-teas!
Bird's eye view.
George roped in a master mixologist from Cufflink Club to give us a master class in concocting some very refreshing cocktails.
Mixologist Joel looks at George lovingly, that's what possibili-tea do to you
16 unique recipes with a variety of Lipton tea, i am so inspired to start throwing ADULT tea parties! They are good looking to boot too, surely to impress my guests. The Fruitea Red Crush which i successfully made was SO SIMPLE yet such a pretty drink that tasted very refreshing. A tinge of sour, the right amount of sweet and very fruity! It felt like a healthy drink, i almost forgot there's alcohol in there. Such cocktails are deadly, they're so yummy that you'll down too many before alcohol has an effect. Hehehe. This recipe is ingenius! Perfect for our Singapore weather, perpeptually summer. 
Here're the recipes:
2 cocktail instruction videos available

However, if you are having a children's tea party....
I have tea parties with my animal friends!
there are also mocktail recipes! You can get them from Lipton's Facebook page.

With alcohol, tea and a relaxed atmosphere, i made friends at George's tea party. I spoke to another mixologist (also a guest) who told me he has never heard of tea being used for cocktails. This was rather innovative and revolutionary!

These recipes give a new twist to tea drinking, opened up many possibilities other than just being a hot drink. The new Lipton broke teabag tradition to come up with the Lipton Pyramid bag which allows tea leaves more room to move and infuse for a better brew. 

The Forrest Fruits Lipton tea pyramid bag smelled soooo good the moment i release the box from its wrapper. I think i can hang it like potpourri in the bathroom.

Possibili-teas right?

Interview with Porcelain Face Spa

Porcelain Face Spa did an interview with me some months ago. Reposting their article here.

Porcelain: Its interesting that you have a Skin Bible! What was your inspiration?
Christine: The inspiration came from my readers. I frequently get emails from readers asking me how I achieve good skin, so I thought of doing a FAQ online in a visually engaging way.
Porcelain: If you had to choose a favourite quote from Skin Bible, what would it be?
Christine: Chocolate do not give pimples! I love eating chocolate.
Porcelain: At Porcelain, we advocate that good skin should be clear and it should radiate from within. Do you agree?
Christine: Definitely! Thus, my second favourite quote is Ditch the Face Paint. Also because Im kind of lazy in removing make up, haha.
Make-up free

Porcelain: We like your blogs motto! What was your premise of saying that?
Christine: Yes, no Photoshop, no falsies, no push-up bras, just real life situations. I know of many who spend hours digitally editing their photos (watch out for strained necks and wrists!). I like to keep my online persona real. I don't want to give anyone a bad shock finding out how different I look in reality (as compared to virtually).
Porcelain: As an avid traveller, what are the skincare must-haves in your travel kit?
Christine: The Balance Essence Serum just saved my life, I mean, my skin on my last travel! (Yay) I was tripping the Sahara Desert. I was worried that the dirt and heat will give me pimples and white heads! So I used [Porcelains] Balance Serum religiously. 
After the Sahara Desert, I went to Switzerland next, where it was cold and dry. So the Balance Serum helped my skin stay moisturized! Just having Balance Serum in my skincare bag was enough for multiple uses. It made traveling light!
Porcelain: Apart from your regular facials with us, how else do you take such great care of your skin? Do you have a daily regime?
Christine: Even though I do not use makeup remover, I will always cleanse when I return home. Because sunblock can clog pores.
Porcelain: If you had to describe us in one word, what would it be?
Christine: Worth. Because youre worth it.
