Four awesome giveaways?

Four short weeks in a row?

YES. Come check in every Tuesday to see what products I’ve been loving lately. Want to know what else? These companies didn’t pick me. I picked them. To get ahead in the blogging world, it’s really easy to partner with any company that will give you free product in order to give them a good review. I’ve lost out on the majority of “money making” opportunities with my blog because I won’t partner with major retailers whose brand or product don’t resonate with my personal convictions or lifestyle. I won’t sell my soul (or yours!) for a paycheque.

I hope you will enjoy these products as much as I have. With many of the small shops highlighted on MerryGolden, I’ve built wonderful relationships and can’t help but share their creativity, talent and heart.

(Justine from Milton Photography is actually the one who really made me rethink my vision and authenticity. Check her out!)

Stay tuned!

    I wish more blogs chose their brand partners instead of the other way around. Bravo to you for sticking to your guns!

      Thanks, Anneke. It’s time to turn the tables. I want blogging to go back to part of its original intents – sharing passion and authenticity. Not just another marketing gimmick. I love your line, too – PS! I love slow fashion. I value people, time and talents. Good on you, girl!

        Thank you so much! I’m happy you like my jackets and it’s always nice to hear that people care about more than then price tag on an item :). Keep up the great blogging – I’m about to have baby number one, so am right into your motherhood posts!
