New York Fashion Week is one of the busiest times of the year for me. I’m not used to having back-to-back meetings and appointments. Usually, back in LA, my days are much more relaxed. I can choose what to do and not to do. But in New York, I feel the pressure to do as much as I absolutely can. Now that Fashion Week is over I’m excited to get back into my regular routine.
One of the big adjustments to Fashion Week is being gone all day, and relying on your phone for absolutely everything. Besides looking at my calendar I use it for emails on the go, GPS map instructions, UBER, ordering things online, not to mention social media! You can only imagine how my portable charger came in handy!

I’ve been reading books lately about time management and looking for systems to incorporate that will keep me sane and happy, especially when I’m busy and on-the-go. Recently PayPal launched their One Touch with PayPal feature which is the first ever single touch payment experience across Android and iOS.  I’ve been using PayPal for years {it was really the first digital wallet system} and have always loved how incredibly easy it is. I use PayPal to send money to family, pay back friends, order online at my favorite stores, and even for invoicing. When an online store accepts PayPal I am so happy because I absolutely hate constantly typing in my credit card and payment information. It’s such a pain, and sometimes enough for me to even rethink my order.
The new One Touch with PayPal feature allows for easier and faster checkout when using the same device and same browser. It still has all those safety features in place too so you know it’s a secure process. The thought of buying something at the touch of a button might sound dangerous for your wallet, but honestly it saves so much time. When you’re crazy busy, any additional moments spared make a huge difference.

At the beginning of my day I
logged into PayPal on my phone and tablet and chose to stay logged-in for
easier, faster checkout. Then, when I was ready to buy, I could skip the PayPal
log-in screen. On one afternoon I was able to use it on Nike to buy a new pair
of running shoes {I forgot my pair in LA}, buy plane tickets on JetBlue for an
upcoming trip that I can’t wait to tell you about, renew my Netflix
subscription {now that I re-watched all of Gilmore Girls I want to binge watch
another series!}, as well as order clothing items from ASOS and Net-a-Porter for my
upcoming trip. I almost used it to order a last minute massage on LivingSocial
because my feet were killing me, but saving that for another day!
If you have any books and tips on
how to stay organized and efficient please let me know! And if you want to read
more about One Touch, here is their faq

Disclosure: Thanks for partnering with me on this post PayPal! I love working with brands and products that I use and believe in. All thoughts and opinions, as always, are my own. Thanks for supporting my sponsors!

    I’ve just gotta say I love your outfits + pictures! Great advice by the way. I hate working anywhere besides my own desk but one of the great things of being freelance is that you actually can do that and have whatever schedule you like and work from wherever. The key though is to staying productive and actually getting things done!

      Yes definitely!! That is definitely important. I get so distracted sometimes haha! I’ll want to play with Ginger, clean my room, or make a snack (when I just had one an hour ago!)
