  • For guest posts and prewritten post submissions, I reserve the right to make corrections and edits for the sake of flow, grammar, and quality.   If I feel that major edits need to be made in order for the post to fit with my blog, I will contact the writer to make major changes.  But I reserve the right to edit any post submission if I feel the change needs to be made in order to maintain good quality of the post.
  • I am selective about the products I review.  I only review products that I feel I will enjoy and that are relevant to my blogging interests and the interests of my readers. When I review a product or reference a product that has been provided to me, I will disclose how I obtained the product within the post.  I am committed to always providing my true and honest opinion as I value the integrity of myself and my website.  Compensation via cash or free product will not influence my review. 
  •  If I do not like a product, I will contact the company and either not review it on my blog, or I will state in my opinion, the pros and cons of the product and my reasoning.  I prefer to maintain a positive atmosphere on my blog.
  • Products for review will not be returned whether a review is written or not.
  • Items received for review must be full size products, not samples or travel-sized products.  These must be identical to the products available for purchase.

  • If at any point I feel that a company, product or service is no longer functioning in the best interests of my readers, I reserve the right to terminate any ad, post or contract related to that company, product or agreement if I feel that a company's conduct, actions, products or ethics may harm the integrity of my website and may inflict false information on my readers.   If any company, PR representative, associate, etc makes requests that I feel are unethical as a blogger, dishonest or unfair to my readers or will jeopardize the integrity of my credibility and my business, any agreement made with said parties to review, post, promote in any fashion will be voided.  My readers are always my first priority!   By contacting me to provide services, it is the your responsibility to understand these terms.  By contacting me to provide services you acknowlege agreement to abide by all terms in this disclosure.
