If I am sent a product to review, I will only ever publish my thoughts about it on my site if I honestly like the product. The same goes for any affiliate links included in posts, I will only ever include a link to something I like and/ or believe in. I will also always make it clear whether there are affiliate links included in a post, or if I have been sent something to review.

As far as adverts go, the content of those is controlled by Google. If you do not like something you’ve seen displayed, feel free to get in contact and let me know.
