Yuletide Breeze (Plus Giveaway 2.0)

For a few days, I thought the cold winter breeze had finally descended upon Florida and I wasn’t sure if I would be thrilled or not. My joints began to ache like I was 90 (haha) and laundry day became more frequent than ever (mind you, the temperatures here are not even remotely close to those up north). The only consolation is I finally get to layer without being judged. That’s a fair bargain, I guess. :P…

DTC Mobile Summer Giveaway!

Ever since the early 2000s, mobile phones have become one of our basic ‘needs’. We feel lost and incomplete without them. The cellular phone is the new man’s best friend—from text messaging to music to social media, it practically has everything we need. A month ago, for some unknown reason my relatively new phone began dying on me, leaving me very disappointed at a brand I used to admire a lot. As a fashion blogger, I use and need my phone for documentation. I was scouting for a new phone when DTC Mobile contacted me regarding a possible collaboration. Since I’ve become open to the possibility of trying out new brands, I thought why not.


This is the first time I’m going to use a locally made cellular phone so I was kinda excited. I was eager to see what it looks likes and if quality is at par with foreign brands. And I gotta say I wasn’t disappointed. The phone I got (which I will share in my future posts) has a huge screen and resolution is superb. It already has pre-installed apps, too, like Facebook, Twitter, and WhatsApp, making work for non-techie people like much easier. What’s more amazing is that the prices of their mobile phones are very Filipino budget-friendly. DTC Mobile offers touch screen phones with Android OS for as low as 1900++—how cool is that? Plus the packaging is really cute too! Check them out on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.


And because it’s their passion to provide quality products and services to the Filipino people, they decided to give these handsets to two (2) lucky people!


With this DTC Mobile EGO GQTV1 Qwerty phone, you can watch television, surf the internet, and place two sim cards in one handset!


And finally, this adorable DTC Mobile GE1 handset is perfect for people who only need the basic functions of a phone.  I honestly like this one because I don’t like complicated phones. Lol

Both phones come with earphones, chargers, etc. All you need is a sim card! Below are the mechanics for the giveaway. ALL 9 ENTRIES ARE MANDATORY, except for the the two bonus points which will show when you’ve accomplished the first 9. Failure to accomplish the required ones will invalidate your entry. This giveaway is open to Philippine residents only. Winners will be announced on April 22, 2014. Good luck!

Sole Street Shoe Giveaway

Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world. – Marilyn Monroe

We all love shoes. Ask any person and no one would ever tell you they don’t want shoes. It’s practically a basic human need, otherwise shoe stores won’t be popping just about anywhere. But even though there is an abundance of shoes in the world, you don’t always encounter a store that carries your style. Usually when I shop, I’ve already gone to four or five stores before finding the perfect pair. I’m picky like that. Recently though I checked out this one store named Sole Street on Facebook. I’m amazed at the wide selection of shoes they have in their shop. There’s something for every one. Below are my favorites: solestreet I like casual, comfortable shoes and it made me all giggly upon seeing that Sole Street has designs that are perfect for my style. If you’re the girly type, they also have flats and heels that will tickle your fancy. The shoes are handpicked by the Sole Street owners according to the current trends and design quality. Furthermore, their payment procedure is flexible and very customer-friendly. You can give a minimal downpayment and worry about the remaining balance after two weeks. Discounts are also given to those who pay in full! If that’s not enough, Sole Street also loves treating their customers with giveaways. Today, Sole Street is giving away Php500 gift certificates to THREE lucky ladies! Sounds good? Sounds good? All you have to do is do the ALL the requirements below—that’s 9 entries all in all. a Rafflecopter giveaway

The giveaway will end on January 27, 2013. Good luck, ladies! 🙂

Holiday 2013 Giveaway

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Lalala 🙂 I’ve been watching too much Ellen DeGeneres videos. Every year Ellen holds this 12 Days of Christmas giveaway. The videos are really entertaining, plus seeing the audience very excited with their gifts would make you very happy. There’s just something with gift-giving that’s very fulfilling—no matter what the cost of the gift is. As they say, it’s the thought that counts. Indeed. That’s why in this blog, I make sure that the holiday season doesn’t pass without giving back to the little community supporting this website. I can’t believe that this domain is already three years old! Three years ago, having a dotcom didn’t even cross my mind. I’m still thankful to friends who made it possible. 🙂

2013 is a big year for me because finally Metamorphosis is slowly getting recognized in the blogosphere. Although getting recognized isn’t the primary reason why I blog, it’s still nice to know that people, and brands, know that you exist. 🙂 But without further ado, below is what’s in store for one lucky lady:

The Overruns Store sells authentic high-street brands such as Forever 21, Zara, Pull & Bear, among others. The winner will receive an electronic gift certificate of Php 1000 which she can use to purchase any item she desires from the store.


Fashion Diaries PH sells basic and trendy apparel fit for girls who want to stand out. They’re giving away this chic Aztec top.


Metamorphosis Clothing, my online clothing store, will be giving away these two cutie 40s-inspired skirts.


The mechanics are very simple. Just accomplish the requirements indicated in the Rafflecopter widget below. The 7 tasks below are mandatory, which will earn you a total of 10 entries. However, you can earn 10 more entries if you decide to do the next 4 tasks, which you can only unlock after accomplishing the mandatory ones.

This giveaway is for Philippine residents only and ends on January 4, 2014 at exactly 12MN. Good luck to everyone!

Big Silver Blowout (CLOSED)

Do you remember when you were a kid, you wanted to grow up so bad so you can be pretty, successful, and independent? I’m not there yet, but a week from now my real journey begins. Months ago I was still in denial about my age. I thought turning 25 would mean I’m old, but then I realized it’s actually the most exciting age, for me at least. I have to make wiser career decisions and start taking my plans seriously. I’m already too old to try out the ‘real world’ because I’ve done that already, and I’m happy to say I survived—as well as this blog.
