Dear Readers, P.R Firms and Companies:
This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. I take pride in giving my honest opinion and assessment of all the products that are submitted to me and experiences I may be given. I reserve the right to opt out of publishing a review if I do not feel that I can be fair with about my opinion.
Please note that this blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions, and/ or other forms of compensation. It is important to me that I point out, that I am not paid to review products.However I do receive products free of charge to try out and I may be compensated with gifts from companies after reviews are published. I will and do accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations.
It is extremely important for me to state that this blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of a relationship, opinion and identity. Compensation received my influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.
This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest. The views and opinion expressed in this blog are purely mine.
