Reviews, Give-Aways, and Advertising

I love to review products, share new things with my readers and hold giveaways! My blog reaches a wide range of readers: single, married, parents, housewives, professionals, empty-nesters, adults, and teens. I am dedicated to giving an honest review of items that of are an interest to me, my family, and/or my readers.

I am interested in many different kinds of products, but I'm especially interested in:

  • Items for busy moms: cooking/baking products, tools and appliances, household items, cleaning products, school supplies, health and beauty items, anything kid related.
  • Green and/or organic products and/or gadgets.
  • Gardening items: plants, gardening supplies, seeds, books.
  • Books: I read books on almost any subject and have done several book reviews in the past.
  • Handmade items: I love to promote handmade and handcrafted goods! Jewelry, books, clothes, aprons, knickknacks, handbags, totes, etc.
  • Electronics: cameras, laptops, MP3 players, kitchen gadgets, video games/gaming supplies.
  • Foods, snacks, drinks.


If I would like to review your product*, please contact me with information about your product. I will then contact you ASAP with my address to send the product. I will not do a review without first personally trying a sample. The sample will not be returned. The company asking for a review will be responsible for any and all shipping costs.

As part of the review, I will include:

  • An honest review of the product.
  • Links to your website and or social networking sites.
  • Photos of the product, yours or mine, per our agreement.
  • Appropriate information regarding the product (sales info, background, etc.) per our discussions.
  • At least one mention on each of my social networking pages (Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter)

* I strongly suggest, when possible, offering a giveaway in conjunction with a review. It increases reader interest in the product, and I encourage my readers to post about giveaways in their own blogs for extra "entries". I also require visiting the product website for entry to each giveaway, increasing traffic to your website, and possible interest in your other products.


I love to offer my readers a chance to win something on my blog! If you are looking to promote your product, company or business, consider sponsoring a giveaway!
