Per FTC regulations, I try to be transparent in the running of this blog.

Product Reviews

I am often sent products at no cost for review consideration. My opinions on these products are always honest, original, and up-front. You will see both positive and critical reviews on marvelous darling because I believe in presenting things fairly and truthfully. If you’d like to send me a product for review consideration, please see Work With Me.

Affiliate Links

Time spent blogging is time that I’ve invested into specialized knowledge and the production of entertainment. Because I spend much of my time testing products, writing reviews, reading about new products, and acquiring industry knowledge, I use affiliate links in an effort to keep this blog financially afloat. Links to SheVibe, Tantus, Lovehoney, FilthyDirty, Vibrant, and Twisted Monk are more than likely affiliate links. That said, affiliate commissions do not affect my opinions on products.

If you’d like to get my opinion when shopping for yourself or for someone else, I’d love to hear from you. Please reach out to me on Twitter or via e-mail with any questions.
