One of my favorite aspects of blogging is the ability to connect with small businesses and share them with you guys. I come from a family of entrepreneurs and creatives which makes me believe even more in shopping small.
The internet has made it way too easy to be able to shop small. You can find any small boutique, shop or maker on the internet and instantly support them. That is why I’m very excited to have partnered with PayPal to show you just how easy it was to purchase from small shop, Allbirds!
Allbirds stole my heart when I read that they are all wool shoes sourced from products that naturally exist. AKA no synthetics. They’re made from wool and are possibly the most comfortable shoe I’ve ever owned. I had been searching for a cute white sneaker for so long, so this makes me super excited. I’m already planning the different ways to wear them.. like a summer dress with sneakers. YES PLEASE.
I know what you’re thinking though… “Aren’t they going to get dirty?”. Yeah, probably. BUT, they are machine washable. Ugh – that’s is amazing for a girl who wears her sneakers out. Also, I’m going to get super TMI, but I hate socks. With a passion.. unless I’m mopping my floors.. then I always need socks. LOL (..the random things I share with you guys..). These shoes are designed to be worn without socks. YASS.
In all seriousness, there are a ton of benefits to these shoes. They’re lightweight, so soft, minimizes odor, keeps your toes warm or cools them when you’re hot, machine washable and so easy to purchase using PayPal. By using PayPal as your payment choice, it is super easy to shop small in the comfort of your home, without needing your wallet and credit card. Say no more.
I am a major fan of PayPal and often find myself using PayPal Credit when checking out, because it is so convenient. You can apply for PayPal Credit during checkout, and take advantage of promotional financing offers like special financing for 6 months on purchases of $99 or more. Which is what I do, or pay it right away, because I don’t want to rack up any interest! Once you get it set up, it’s a simple click of the button to pay and have the item sent to your door.
When you’re shopping small, look for the PayPal symbol to know that brand accepts PayPal payments. When you go to check out, it’s as easy as choosing PayPal as your preferred payment method and hit submit. It works seamlessly!
Now that the Holidays are almost over, it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to treat yourself. Why not treat yourself to a cute, comfy wool sneaker from Allbirds?! & don’t forget to check out with PayPal. Your toes will thank you!
P.S – I saw a girl today wearing these Allbirds in purple! First, I was shocked that someone else in my little city owned a pair. Second, I felt so excited that she also had them and loved them.
