DISCLOSURE

From time to time Chasing Daisies works with clothing, food, lifestyle, and other types of brands and tourism boards in order to experience and promote looks, activities, accommodations, etc. Sometimes I receive compensation as a result of these partnerships which can be in the form of cash, free merchandise, food, accommodation, etc.

Regardless of who foots the bill, I will always provide you with honest and unbiased opinions of said experiences. When I partner with outside brands, I always retain full editorial control and I will never work with brands I do not personally believe in or support. Additionally, I often provide pros and cons for sponsored content that is 100% honest. Everything recommended to you is something I personally use/do/have done/believe in myself.

All such partnerships are disclosed in each relevant blog post.
