If you're a company that would like to partner with us, we'd love to hear from you. We have some resources for you regarding our best practice policies.
Please note, while some posts may be sponsored by companies, the opinions we share are our own and honestly represent our views.
Visit our Media Kit & Accolades page for additional information. If you would like, you can also Download our Media Kit.
In order to account for the cost of site maintenance, equipment, membership in professional associations, and the length of time needed to craft & edit a post, take high quality images, and social sharing (phew, that was a mouthful!) most posts involving a brand include a fee. If you would like to send products for us to try without compensation, you are welcome to do so, and will be entered into our "lottery system," meaning if we try and love your products, or have free time in our posting calendar, we may feature your items without receiving pay. In some instances, products may also be donated to our local shelter if it is determined that they need the items sent to care for the animals more than we do.
Our commitment to supporting local shelters is (hopefully) evident in all that we do. To date, we have donated approximately $10,000 worth of money and products to shelters in our community. A portion of all monies earned through sponsored posts are donated.
Reviews will be featured on all social media platforms (including but not limited to: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)
Reviews will always:
* Include honest viewpoints
* Reviewed products will be the property of the reviewer and will not be returned
* Fees may be applied (contact us regarding our pricing outline)
* Products may be declined for review at the discretion of the reviewer
* Increased product purchases or website traffic cannot be guaranteed
* An appropriate window of time to test a product, and draft a review is anticipated. Please account for at least 30 days.
Reviews and giveaways will be paired. As a result, they will be shared on all social media platforms already stipulated.
The policies listed in the Review Policy reflect the parameters for the Giveaway Policy.
Unless otherwise noted, it will be the advertiser's responsibility for providing: giveaway prizes and shipping costs.
As such, the company can determine the number of prizes given, the prize, the number of winners, and where prizes can be shipped (United States or International).
