Disclosure Policy

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me (Eileen Dautruche). The photos do not belong to me unless I personally took them. If I do take a picture and you would like to use it, please link back to this site. Most photos are courtesy of www.style.com and various other websites/ blogs on the internet. I always try to credit the source of my pictures, but alas, I’m human. I forget. “To err is human…” If, however, one of the photos belong to you and you want to specifically be credited and/or you want it removed, please feel free to contact me.

I am not compensated to provide reviews on products, services, websites and various other topics. I am sent products to review from brands, however, that does not influence my opinion or endorsement of a product. Additionally, I often partner with brands on a compensated basis via sponsored posts (advertisements), photo shoots, and larger campaigns which will always be indicated in the post. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely mine. If I claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area, I will only endorse products or services that we believe, based on my expertise and experience with said product/service, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider. This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
