Disclosure

Disclosure
Before we start in on this disclosure business, I want to tell you that I only talk about stuff I really like.  Blogging started out that way for me, and everyone else, remember?  Everyone wrote posts about the things they loved, and we all got to bond and bitch about things together.  Then things changed, blogging became a business – and no one works for free.

So I'm here to tell you that no matter what I'm writing about, I’ve checked them out first.  I don’t review products I haven’t tried, or ones that don’t live up to my standards, and I don’t link to products I wouldn’t buy.

Reviews, Giveaways, & Dedicated Posts
Whenever you see a product review or giveaway, you’ll also see a note as to how I got that product: either a company generously provided me with items from their line (in hopes that I’d like and talk about them) or I picked them up on my own shopping adventures specifically so I could share them to you.

Sidebar Ads
If you look to the sidebar of my website, you’ll see images and text links from advertisers.  You may never have noticed them before, because I don’t use creepy sound-filled or blinky obnoxious.  I love my advertisers, because by and large, they’re people and companies I already shop with – or at least have a great respect for.  I get paid a flat fee or a “per click” but I still recommend that you check them out when you get a chance.  They’re great, and they support bloggers like me!

Affiliate Links
I have created accounts with a few affiliate advertising websites.  Here’s how affiliate advertising works: when we’re writing a post, I’ll hunt around for products I like.  (Oooh, pretty lipstick.  Oooh, another pretty eyeshadow.)  Before I hit “post,” I check these affiliate sites to see if they have a link to the products I'm posting about. If they do, I’ll use their links in my posts.

What that means for you: Nothing special. You’ll be taken to the website the product is listed on, to buy it or not buy it.  If you like it, neat!  If you like other things on the website, also neat!  If you accidentally clicked the product link and close the window immediately, or if you never click anything, that’s okay too!

What it means for me: Some affiliate sites track how many people click their product links, and some track how many people buy something after they click a product link.  I get compensated either “per click” or “per purchase.”  It’s a way for me to make a little extra money doing what I love…which means I'm that much closer to doing it full-time (which means I can find even more stuff to tell you about).  Please know, though, that I’ll never post about something just because  I can “link it.”  That would be no fun for me anyway – what’s the fun in talking about stuff I don’t like? – and really unfair to you guys.

In Short
When I love something and I can make money talking about it, I not going to argue against it.  But I promise to never, ever post about something I don’t love for the sake of money.  I’ve turned down advertisers before because they didn’t fit with my style, my mission, and my aesthetic, and I will again.

If you have any questions about my advertising policies, or if you’d like to advertise with me, please contact me directly.  And if you’re down with my funding practices, please utilize them by interacting with my advertisers and links to the products I post.  Thanks!
