We do a lot of research during each project seeking out the best solutions and at times brand partnerships. Whether we seek out or are approached to partner, sometimes this can turn into a natural partnership between me and the business where product will ultimately be donated and I will receive compensation for exposure on my blog/social channels. I only work with brands and businesses that I believe in and will never promote an item that I don’t truly like, even if it’s free. If a content is sponsored, I will always disclose it to keep my editorial integrity.
All of the products I share are things I (or my husband, Brian) genuinely love – some will be affiliated, and some won’t be. I use affiliate links to share where I purchased an item. Affiliate programs I’m a participant in, include rewardStyle (LTK) and the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program. Affiliate marketing programs are designed to provide a means for digital creators and sites such as this to earn commissions on qualifying purchases by linking through them. It really helps keep my blog running while sharing more quality content outside of my social channels.
