Policies

I will review family-friendly products on my blog.
My reviews will always be based on my personal opinion.
I will not post a review that is not authentic or genuine to my true feelings.
This extends to any and all social media accounts I am connected to.

You can view all my reviews here.
You can view my book reviews here
I also have book reviews on my Good Reads profile.
For product reviews click here.
You can also see my reviews on Chick Advisors & Influenster
I
 review movies & TV shows occasionally, you can see them here

Please note that I am sometimes compensated for my reviews, either via payment or free/discounted product.I will always disclose to my readers if I have received a compensation and/or a free product for my review.  My reviews will always remain 100% my opinion regardless of compensation.  I will review products with my children if the product is geared towards children. Their opinions of the product will be included, however photos, videos etc of them using the product will be at the discretion of the children and myself.

If you would like me to review a product or book I will require you to send me your item(s) at your cost (including paying shipping if applicable) Reviews will include product photos. I will also include links to your site within the review and information on where to buy the product.  Reviews will be done within 2 weeks of my receiving a product to give me enough chance to use the product and give it a thorough review. Reviews done with my children may take longer as I will follow their timeline.

Books may take longer depending on size of the book. For book reviews we will discuss a set amount of time for me to be able to read the book & complete the review. Products that are sent to me for review are mine to keep or give away unless otherwise agreed upon with you.  My reviews will include at least one post to my social media accounts (both personal and the ones connected to this blog) or more if discussed prior. Again, these posts will be at my discretion and based on my opinion(s)

Affiliate Links Sometimes you will see this written above or in a post. This means if you click a link, I make a few cents. Even though it is not a lot, every little bit helps and is greatly appreciated.

Sponsored Post This means I was compensated for writing the post. This payment will never affect my review and my review will always be based on my opinion of a product.
