I’m proud of this blog and have poured my heart and soul into it since 2010. It’s been my passion, for sure. For that reason, because I truly believe in the value I’ve added from content on this site, I use affiliate links & other partnerships on this website to try and compensate myself for the time and hard work I put into it.


When you click on links and make a purchase, this site may receive a small commission (like I could probably make more opening up a lemonade stand) — at no extra cost to you! I always so appreciate when you shop through these links.

Affiliate programs I’m involved in:



I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for me to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.


I am also an affiliate for Shopstyle — a program that pays me a small commission every time a reader clicks a link.

Reviews/Review Consideration

At times I may receive books or products for review consideration or as a gift. When this happens I will specifically disclose in the post that I have received it for review consideration or as a gift by saying “c/o or courtesy of.” This NEVER sways my opinion or what I write about the product in question…pinky swear!! I have written very honest reviews of things I don’t like or point out the cons of something I did like if there were any. I decided what I want to review (honestly there is lots of stuff that never ends up even on this blog even though I’m thankful for it) and pride myself in my honesty. I super hate when bloggers aren’t honest about this kind of stuff so it’s important for me to be honest — no matter if that means I’m never sent something for free again! I NEVER EVER accept monetary payment FOR a review. Nope, not interested in paid reviews.



Any paid-for-posts or sponsorships will be specifically and clearly marked as “sponsored” in a disclosure at the top of the post. I only accept sponsorships/partnerships for things I truly like or believe in or am genuinely interested in. Not into selling my soul in hopes of making a quick buck. If it’s a good fit and I think my readers would be interested in it, then I’m in.

One last note:

Unless noted, I don’t get paid by anyone to feature any product or specific company/brand — it’s just genuinely the things I like, am interested in, etc.

Also, if you ever have any questions about my disclosure policy, never hesitate to contact me!
