Items marked “c/o” or “collaboration” have been gifted to me to review or feature in blog posts and/or social media posts. (I always choose or pick the products that I feature and never review anything that I wouldn’t be happy to purchase myself).
Any post marked as “in collaboration with [a brand]” or “thanks to [brand name] for partnering with me” or “#ad” means that I have accepted payment and / or a free gift to write the post or add some promotional details.
In all instances I will always give my 100% honest opinion (payment is for the administration involved and the PR, not the review itself).
I sometimes use affiliate links for products. This means I may earn commission if readers click through and buy. Wherever possible I will link to the original product, though I also give alternative suggestions as either text links or linked thumbnails.
By monetizing the blog I can continue to produce great content that I hope will interest and inspire my readers.
