Opinions & Recommendations
Firstly, I’d like to state that I sincerely value the trust of my readership, therefore you can expect all opinions and recommendations shared on Joannesherrell.com to be 100% honest and genuine. I will never be swayed to share a product or company in a positive light in exchange for cash or any other incentive, and I will only recommend products and brands that I genuinely love.
I may sometimes use affiliate links. This means that if you click on a direct link from my blog and you make a purchase on that page, I may receive a tiny amount of money from the sale. This does not mean that you will be charged more money; The price you pay is exactly the same if you went directly to the website but the company pays me a small amount of money from your sale as a thank you for referring a customer.
While it is not mandatory that you purchase through the affiliate links on my page, it is greatly appreciated, and the money generated supports the running of my blog.
Affiliate links are marked with an asterisk (*).
PR Products & Gifted Items
I purchase most of the products mentioned on Joannesherrell.com with my own money, however, some items mentioned may have been sent to me as a gift by brands or PR companies. In this instance, these will be marked as ‘PR’ or ‘gifted’.
Sponsorship & Advertisements
I may occasionally be paid by a company to advertise their brand or product on Joannesherrell.com. This could be in the form of a product review or simply providing a link to their website.
Any content of this nature will be marked as ‘ad’ and, as mentioned above, all opinions and recommendations I share – regardless of if they are sponsored or not – will be 100% honest and genuine. I will never be swayed to share a product or company in a positive light in exchange for cash or any other incentive, and I will only recommend products and brands that I genuinely love.
