Oh how I love rules, regulations and legal issues. Yay! 🙂 So, as with anything else out in the world, I need to provide a “legal” page of fun info for all of you to read. Enjoy!
The FTC has regulations (lots of them) and I am sure for good reasons. Personally, I am a very honest person and want to let all of you know when and how I am compensated on this blog.
I started this personal blog to give you all some great ideas, tips, and information on how to live more naturally but on a budget. I love to let you all know about any deals or products that I am using, have used, or have heard about.
Anytime I talk about or review a product or service, all opinions are my own (and you all know how I love to give my opinion)! Whether it is favorable or not, I will always let you know if I bought the product, tried it out or received it for free. Believe me, I would never endorse a product that I, myself, would not use or buy.
At times I may accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, or other types of compensation. It may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made on this blog. Sponsored posts or product reviews will be labeled as such. I will, do accept and keep free products, services, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations. But, realistically, most of the times the companies that make the products I am reviewing or talking about, have no idea who I am or that I am even talking about their products. 🙂
When I link certain products to websites (like Amazon) they are items that I have either used myself, have known someone who has used them, or have heard that it is an amazing product by word of mouth or reviews. Sometimes it is just a great deal that I would like you to all be aware of. I am very upfront about the product and in letting you know my thoughts on it.
I am an affiliate of a few companies that I love and shop at myself. An affiliate link is a link that takes you directly to the product and if you choose to purchase it, or even another product on that site, I receive a small commission. It does not cost you anything extra.
Just remember that I love to be honest and give my opinion. Whether it is good, bad, or indifferent I will let you know. I try to be as forthcoming as I can be with each product that I talk about (unless otherwise noted). I never, ever claim to be an expert on a certain product, service, or topic that is posted. Always check with the manufacturer or service provider on that.
Thank you and Enjoy!
