Hey peeps! We wanted to just kind of write in our own words some of the guidelines that we have here on the blog, especially pertaining to reviews, giveaways, etc.
Our Reviews:
Our reviews on this blog will always be 100% honest. Whether a company sent us a product for free, or we bought it ourselves and just want to share with everyone, we will never give a misleading or positive review just because we got it for free. The whole point of this blog is to share all of the exciting things that we love, and love to do with our readers, not to mislead them into getting stuff that isn’t great.
Even though we won’t endorse a product that we didn’t like, we don’t derive any pleasure from slamming companies, products, etc. Just because a product didn’t work for us, doesn’t mean it won’t work for someone else. Our word isn’t law or anything. We will always detail why we didn’t like the product in our reviews, and you can make up your own minds from there.
We take our product reviews seriously, especially when companies send things for free. If we like the product we will do our best to drive traffic your way!
If you are are company and you send us something for review, it may take some time for us to review your item. We plan a lot of our posts a month in advance so sometimes it’s difficult to squeeze things in at the last moment, or give them a proper “trial run”. However we do try to post our reviews as soon as possible. If you have a specific deadline for whatever reason, please let us know when emailing us so that we will be well aware ahead of time.
