all opinions expressed are my own and this will always be so.
from time to time i may accept products from brands for review. i turn down a lot of opportunities because i only want to share what fits with my tastes, and those of my blog and its audience.
any items sent to me ‘for consideration’ or as gifts without prior agreement in email that they will be featured are accepted, but there is no guarantee of a feature on my blog or social media. i ask that you provide a return address and postage if you want an item sent back, or ask specifically for a feature if that is your aim. any items that do not fit with my tastes or are not useful will be given to friends, family, or to charity.
all items that are gifted to me will be marked with a asterisk (*) or stated ℅. on social media, they will be marked as ‘gifted’.
sponsored posts are will be marked with “in association with”, “in collaboration with” “sponsored by” or wording along those lines. sponsored posts have been compensated with money, vouchers, or store credit. they are written in my own words and with my own opinions.
i currently use amazon associates, affiliate window and shopstyle on this blog and on my social media. on social media, these will be marked as #al, #afflink or something along these lines. in my newsletter they will be marked with an asterisk (*) and a link to this page will be included.
with affiliate links, a small commission is earned by me when you click through to certain sites and purchase. this is at no cost to you, and helps to pay hosting costs and such.
images may not be used for commercial purposes without prior consent. all imagery on this blog belongs to and is taken or made by me, unless stated otherwise. please give credit where it is due and link back to this blog/the post when using my images. an email to let me know is appreciated!
