Blogger/brand collaborations are becoming ever increasing on this lil’ internet thing, as everyone is cottoning on to how great a tool we are for promotion! Eventually, huh? With that comes a whole load of guidelines and rules and, as a blogger, it’s nice to base what you do on honesty as it’s always the best policy. So here’s a little disclaimer outlining what happens when I receive a product or collaborate with a brand.

1) If I receive an item from a company, buy something with press discount or given store credit to purchase an item for the purpose of review or promotion, I will put an asterisk (*) next to that item. In posts where I may have received more than one item, I will write that the post contains PR samples at the end of the post to keep it looking clean and tidy.

2) I would never review or say something about positive about a product I do not genuinely love or would not happily continue to use once the review process is over. A positive review cannot be bought from me and I will not be persuaded otherwise. My reviews will always be 100% honest and not biased in any way.

3) Regarding sponsored posts, I will mention in the post itself, typically in the form of a disclaimer located at the end of the post that the post has been a collaboration. This is the same for sponsored links or any other content where I have been paid to place something on my blog. This also stands for promoted tweets or instagram posts, which will be marked with a #sp.

4) I use RewardStyle as an affiliate program where I earn a very small amount of commission if an item is bought using my link. I also use this to display items I currently in two locations on my homepage and within posts. I literally earn pennies from this, so please support a fellow blogger by clicking on these links when purchasing an item as it helps keep this blog going.

If you have any questions about any of the above, then please do email me at [email protected] If you want to know more about collaborating with me, then please visit my PR page.
