reviewpolicyI reserve the right to decline to review or giveaway any product regardless of any previous relationship with said company or sponsor. Though I may receive compensation and/or products for reviews, advertisements, and/or giveaways, I believe in honesty and integrity and will always give my honest and true opinion of a product or giveaway.  Any compensation or product that I receive will not influence any advertisements, posts, reviews, or giveaways on this site.

Should I decline to review or giveaway your product, you will be notified in advance.  If I find the product to be something that I cannot honestly endorse, write a positive review of, or otherwise promote on my site, I will notify you prior to posting the review so that an agreement may be made on whether or not to post the review and/or giveaway.  I not only want to maintain my readers trust, but would not want to cause any harm to the reputation of the company in question.

Giveaways may or may not be labeled as sponsored.

Giveaways and Reviews May Include: 

  • Links to sponsor’s Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Shop or Website
  • Photographs of the product or service in question (I may request permission to use photographs from the website, or that photographs be emailed to me)
  • Logo’s or other identifying visual item
  • Promotion via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or other social networking sites
