I am a huge believer in #NoBullshitBlogging. Unless the post is marked with an asterisk (*), the products reviewed on this blog have been picked out and paid for by me personally. If a post is not marked with an asterisk but I have been sent PR samples, I will note this in the post.

Some of my posts may contain affiliate links, which help to keep running, but I will never recommend a product or business unless I personally think that it is worthy of that recommendation. If I have been compensated for creating a blog post by a brand or company, my views on that product will not be impacted by this.
