Thank you for checking out my sponsor page.

Right now I'm looking to partner up with some great bloggers and businesses that appeal to myself and my readers. My blog covers a variety of topics, including, but not limited to: blogging, parenting, weddings, natural hair care, weight-loss, recipes and much, much more. For more information regarding pricing, and sizing, view the Adproval widget below.

NOTE: If you are interested in me reviewing/giving away a product for your organization, please note the updated requirements below. 

Reviews and Giveaways 

Updated 4/18/2014 : Due to the increase in the amount of offers for product reviews and giveaways I receive, I have recently made some changes to how I do reviews and giveaways. To ensure that your products receive consideration, please note the changes below. 
1) Products will be reviewed in the order in which they are received. If products are sent more than a month after our discussion, I can not promise that they can be posted within a 3-4 week time frame as my spots typically fill up fast for the month. 
2) Products that cost less than $50.00 will require an additional payment. The only exception to this, is if the product is affiliated with a non-profit or fundraiser for a good cause. 
If you have any further questions about product reviews or giveaways, please email me at and we'll talk!
