Most of my posts (both on my blog and Instagram page) discuss a mixture of PR samples that were gifted to me and products purchased myself. PR samples will have an asterisk next to the name of the relevant product in the body of the post. I do not accept any products for my blog or social media with any obligation to post. Please note any of these links will be 'no follow' with effect from April 2016 and any products submitted to me for consideration are now classified as 'unpaid advertisements' by the ASA. All advertorial content (paid for or gifted or affiliated) will be disclosed as the first line of the post and I'll also ensure it is obvious on social media before you click the link if my content is paid for, so you can decide whether you want to read on or not. Unless stated otherwise by myself: all products featured were purchased by me (with the exception of the occasional Christmas / birthday gift or voucher from friends or family!) Where products are purchased by myself; please note I may still have a relationship with the brand featured or a website they are exclusive to (I have amended this with effect from April 2019 to be included at the start of each post).
As with all reviews and opinions expressed on this blog, I will discuss gifted items / PR samples honestly and within the context of my personal experience with them. I may choose to exclude samples I don't feel inspired to write about, though I may give them an average or negative review, depending on how it works with my content. Please also note that sometimes gifted items may be used in my photography as props or in the background.
Where I have been gifted products from charities, I will always make a private donation to the organisation in question.
I am also a member of several affiliate programs, meaning I can generate a small commission from sales generated through my blog however as with all PR samples my opinions will be entirely honest and unbiased. You can see an up-to-date list here.
Please also note that I use Skimlinks on my blog, allowing me to make a small commission when you buy a product using links that would have been included in my posts regardless. Any links through their merchants are automatically monetised and if I link something that isn't through one of their partners, it is not an affiliate link. You will be able to see when the page redirects if a link has been monetised via Skimlinks and if you don't wish for your purchase to generate any commission, please open a new tab to buy the product (no commission is earned through clicking links). If you'd like to know more about Skimlinks - please look here. I also earn a small commission where purchases are made through my Reward Style Shop widgets.
