AFFILIATE LINKS / SPONSORED POSTS / GIFTED ITEMS
I use affiliate links in the posts on my blog which means, if you buy a product recommended by me, I sometimes make commission.
I still continue to feature brands that I have no affiliation with and only feature products I love! If a post I have written is sponsored I will make that clear in the post. If I am recommending an item I have been gifted I will make that clear and again I will only recommend products I genuinely like and think are great.
