Policies & Disclosure
I am currently only accepting products for review if they are accompanied with a giveaway offering. For me to review a product, I must receive a full-size, non-returnable sample of the product. Within 4-6 weeks of receipt of the product I will provide a written review with photos. I will only post positive reviews. If the product does not meet my standards, I will contact you to discuss the next step. When the review is complete, I will email you a link to view the review. I am quite active on Twitter and Facebook so your product will be shared with others who follow me on those sites in addition to here on the blog. Or, if you'd like to send something for either Carina or myself to use or wear, I would be happy to post a photo and link to your site in one of my regularly scheduled posts.
Giveaways can be offered in the form of a physical product or gift certificate for a set amount. I will let you choose the mandatory and optional additional entries for the giveaway (require my readers to visit your website, "Like" you on Facebook, Follow you on Twitter, etc.) Giveaways will run for 5-10 days unless you request a different amount of time. I am flexible and would like to meet your needs. If offering a product, I ask that you please ship the item directly to the winner. I will provide you with the winner's e-mail address once the giveaway is complete.
This disclosure policy is valid from 4/28/2011 onwards. This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. If an article is not written by me and is written by a guest it will be noted in that post. For questions about this blog, please contact me at email@example.com
This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation. This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. We believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog.

Products that I post about or link to within a post are things that I have purchased myself and were not received for free, unless clearly stated. However, please assume that any link to the product within the post is an affiliate link, which means I could profit from the purchase of the product. Any opinion on a product is written without regard for whether or not I will profit from its sale. I do have integrity, and I would never intentionally steer my readers towards a product that is not worthy of their attention. My experience with a product is not necessarily typical of all experiences with the same product. I cannot be held liable if results differ from what is stated in my posts.
