While we do accept forms of advertising, sponsorship or other forms of compensation, sponsored content will be identified as such and we always give our honest opinion.
We strive to protect our credibility and trust with our community. We only work with brands we personally believe in and which suit our audience. We turn away a lot of requests for product placement or promotion, in favour of reaching out to brands we personally love, who have products that we already use and feel passionate about.
The views and opinions expressed in this website are the bloggers’ own and any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
