Just like Sir Mixalot, I like big butts and I cannot lie.  That’s why all of the opinions on this site are strictly my own (unless I’m telling what someone else told me but then I’d let you know because don’t we all deserve the truth?!).  Sometimes, people give me things to try, like beauty products or clothes to wear but I promise I would never put something on here that I wouldn’t use if I didn’t have a blog because being misled is like acid wash denim – sometimes it happens but it’s never a good thing!  I’ll let you know when something comes for free by adding “c/o” to the post.

I also use Skimlinks which means that sometimes I get a paid commission if you purchase a product or service that I link to in my content.  I want to be clear that my reviews are driven entirely by me based on my opinions and what I have actually used/worn/liked/loved/coveted/etc. I use Skimlinks to help us automate the process of linking to products, especially as it distances me from creating affiliate links with retailers myself.
