BONUS #FXMAS16 DAY! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Not just the holiday season but my most favourite time for FASHIONIGHTS – Day one of my annual 12 Days of Christmas giveaway! Otherwise know as #FXMAS; my annual gift-guide-turned-MASSIVE-giveaway was a change from the usual gift guide that you’re all reading in magazines and other blogs where finally one year I said “Screw it – why should my readers have to be the ones to READ what I think they should buy for others when they can ACTUALLY have the chance to win it?!”
You’re the reason I’m here, you’ve all stuck around throughout the year – all these years. And no, I can’t give one to each of you, but it’s my way of giving back to you guys.
Whether you’re thinking about a loved one, boss, friend or yourself – I love the idea of an interactive and fun approach between YOU, ME & these great brands. Brands and products that I’m very familiar with and genuinely LOVE.
As I tweeted earlier this week, you guys are KILLING it this year– easily surpassing last year’s #FXMAS15 12 Days by like day 8! I’m so so glad you’ve all enjoyed participating and those of you who’ve won – amazing!! This year is SO BANANAS that I’ve added 2 EXTRA DAYS, rounding up to a full 2 weeks of giveaways! 14 beautiful days of holiday cheer and happiness!
Getting things lit for these 2 bonus days are our friends at PayPal! You may remember a few weeks back PayPal threw my first holiday party of the season where a few other bloggers & I had the opportunity to use PayPal on some of the over 13 millions online retailers and sellers to gift one another some holiday surprises!
I use PayPal regularly, (mostly because I’m using Uber to go everywhere) it’s made shopping significantly easier and knowing that my money is safe & protected is reassuring.
1. One Touch Speed through checkout – even on the go!
Spend less time paying and more time playing. This holiday season, skip the hectic, over crowded mall and shop online instead. PayPal’s One Touch checkout allows you to check out faster as you shop across millions of online retailers without having to type usernames, passwords, or 16-digit credit card numbers over and over, making it super simple to shop from your mobile phone or any connected device. Gone are the days of pulling out your credit card while shopping from your couch, in a cab, or even at dinner!
2. Return Shipping on Us Shop with less stress
Purchased something that doesn’t fit, wasn’t what you expected or simply changed your mind? NBD. PayPal’s newly launched Return Shipping on Us service now foots the bill for return shipping costs on eligible items.
