Blog Giveaway: Butterfly Twists - Super Shoes for Super Moms!

GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED.  WINNER TO BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY. 

We have a winner!!


Congratulations to Rachel Anne Del Rosario!  Please check your email.  Thanks to everyone for joining! Next contest in mid-October ;)

=========================
A couple of weeks ago, Trina, Stan's high school friend contacted me about hosting a giveaway on the blog for Butterfly Twists - rollable, twistable, foldable shoes that you can pop in your bag and take with you anywhere.  But before sharing the giveaway, let me share with you Trina's own breastfeeding story about nursing her now 3-year-old son (this is a breastfeeding blog after all! ;D).

Trina was able to give her son breastmilk for 1 year despite leading a hectic lifestyle.  She wasn't able to produce a lot of milk but she made it a point to express milk on both sides after she directly fed to save for rainy days. A few weeks after giving birth, Trina went back to work and teaching (once a week in fashion school).  Barely two months post-partum, she had to attend a wedding in Boracay where she was the maid of honor.  Then at four months post-partum, she and her husband took a 2-week vacation in Australia.  Did these hinder her milk expression times? No - in fact she successfully expressed milk every 3 hours and brought the milk home for her son.

How did she do it?  By pumping everywhere - you can say that her pump was her best friend during this period! She pumped during wedding preparations, during the wedding reception, while driving in the car, during class breaks, in the middle of a girl's night out, while shopping and walking in the mall, while on tour and even at a pub in Australia!

Before Trina went on her Australian trip, she was able to store about 400 oz. of milk such that her son was still on breastmilk exclusively, during her entire trip.  Did she have an abundance of milk?  According to Trina, the maximum output she had during each expression time was only 4 ounces - but she just kept going and going!

Basically, Trina wanted to go on with her life without sacrificing the best thing that she can give her son - breastmilk.  She had earlier been told that to successfully breastfeed her son for 1 year, she'd have to give up her job and basically stay at home.  But her experience certainly proved those naysayers wrong!

Trina is now expecting twins and is preparing for their arrival in October.  From her experience with her eldest child, she is definitely willing to do what it takes to give her twins the best milk.

And with that, let me segue to her product - Butterfly Twists - Super Shoes for Super Moms! Check out her press release and the giveaway at the end of this post!  With her commitment and dedication, Trina is definitely a perfect example of a "SUPER MOM"!
Moms today are more amazing than ever. They juggle a ton of tasks day in and day out, and still manage to be on top of being a wife, mother and career woman.
As they rush from home to school, to office to errands, it is usually their feet that first take the blows of a busy day. Much as they would want to wear a comfortable pair of flip flops to move around as swiftly and pain-free as possible, slippers just don't make the cut in looking fashionable on weekdays.
The good news from the United Kingdom though is that there is a way for super moms to look super chic in flats. They're called Butterfly Twists, a range of foldable flats that are ready to wear any time the soles need instant relief. An innovative take on the classic ballet slippers, they fold to a small triangular shape that allow them to fit in the smallest of handbags, glove compartments, and desk drawers. Best of all, they are highly fashionable in a range of different designs, beginning with the Satin Collection (Black, Gold, Purple, Red, and Aqua), Faux Leather Collection (Black, Gold, Silver and White), and Python Collection (Black, Navy, Silver, and Pink).




In fact, the supermoms who have discovered Butterfly Twists hardly even keep them folded. Stylish as the flats already are, they have come to wearing them from the start to the end of their days.
Butterfly Twists are also ideal for pregnant women who need to stay away from heels but want to be as fashionable as always.
All 3 collections have recently been available in stores perfect for ‘Moms on the go’: Moana and Aura Athletica in Power Plant Mall, Rockwell, HAB (Havin’ a baby and more) in Greenbelt 5, Shangri-la Mall, and Alabang Town Center.
Butterfly Twists of England is exclusively distributed by Butterfly Twists Philippines. Also available in: Chocolate Clothing Company in TriNoMa (not Chocolate Schu Bar), The Flat Shop in Greenhills, Fashion Forum in SM Megamall, SM Mall of Asia, and SM Makati, ARANAZ in Greenbelt 5, Catalogue in Gaisano Mall, Davao, and Mian’s Closet in Mary Mary Mall, Iloilo City
FOR MORE INFORMATION, please call Tessa Mauricio-Arriola at (02) 975-5751 or (0917) 560-1495, or email butterflytwistsph@yahoo.com.

just fielded my entry! been following @mamababylove on twitter already and i'm now following @cleversoles!

i can't wait to win a pair of satin flats! hmm, my shoe size is 6 1/2. i could go either way, though, 6 or 7. but for this type of shoes, i guess it's better to go with something more snug, right?

my color: black or gold!
