My sponsored blog posts and videos always include a short disclaimer, and any paid social content will feature the #ad hashtag. I’m all about honesty.
A lot of the beauty products on this blog are sent to me to trial, I don’t have to feature them, I don’t even have to like them oruse them – though I do usually trial everything I’m sent.
Saying that, I love shopping too so I also buy a lot of products that feature on katelavie.com.
For this reason, I don’t tend to disclose when I’ve been gifted beauty products in my posts – I’ve reached this decision over the course of a few years and I think it works best for me.
I have no ulterior motive, I just really like recommending good products! I think a lot of my readers will know that they can trust my recommendations.
I don’t abuse these, but they’re a great way to track what you guys like to see, and of course the money I do earn allows me to improve my blog and pay for faster hosting – things like that.
