The majority of what we post about is purchased and paid for by us and us alone – the exception being gifts from friends/family, or the occasional rewards points redemption. Products that we receive from Influenster, bzzAgent, and similar organizations are always identified.

We are cautiously dipping a toe into affiliate marketing. Affiliate ads will be displayed under the “brands we love” section of the sidebar. We will only display ads for brands that we have personally tried and loved.

We are pr-friendly. Any products sent to us for consideration will always be identified as such.
