Disclosure and Privacy policy

Sponsored posts and advertising

In order to support this site and guarantee that I can continue to deliver high quality articles to you every day that will (hopefully) help you to feel and look better, I run ads on this site and offer brands the opportunity to sponsor an article. However, I’m very selective with the brands I feature on this blog and will only write about those brands that appeal to me or / and are very suitable to my audience.

Some of the banner ads are currently served by Google, and unfortunately I cannot control the Google ads that appear for you, as they all differ per region.  If you see anything inappropriate though, please report this to me (please copy the website address) and I can block that particular site from being able to advertise on this site. Google ads are clearly marked and mainly appear in the side bar.

I occasionally run sponsored posts that I write for brands. We will only run sponsored articles from brands that I respect or that I believe will be a good fit for this site. All the opinions in sponsored articles are my own. I will never compromise the integrity of this site by making any false claims or endorse products I don’t like. Any sponsored content will be clearly marked!

I hope that you will accept the ads and  occasional appearance of sponsored posts on this site as a means for this this site to exist. I also hope that you can support my sponsors, so I can continue to deliver high quality content to you at no cost.

Reviews

As part of my efforts to inform you about new trends, products or books that can help keep you healthy, in style and fashionable, I will illustrate my posts with products or try out and review various products and treatments. I believe that sharing my experiences can benefit you in making the right choices for yourself. Most of these products and services I purchased myself (or I would like to purchase!), but it may also happen that I get offered a product or service for review on this site. Products that were given to me for review or perusal will be marked with c/o.

I can ensure you that all reviews only offer my honest opinion on how I felt these products helped me or how I think they would benefit you. I certainly don’t want to risk losing you as a reader by giving you referrals for products and services that don’t work. Also, all review articles are ONLY edited by me and will not be sent for pre-approval.

I will not write about products or services I don’t like.

Please accept though that products or services that worked for me or that I like, may not necessarily be the right choice for you! In the case of fashion and clothes, it is clear that I cannot have it all and not try out all the garments and shoes I recommend. I can assure you though, that I will only highlight products and services that I would recommend to 40+ women.

Affiliate links

This website contains affiliate links. This means that I will get paid a small commission for some products or services I recommend. You will never pay more for the service because of this (in many cases you will even get a discount). Again I ensure you that I only endorse products that I believe are beneficial to you. Income from the site helps me to maintain the website so that I continue to give you the best fashion and style tips!
