Disclosure

Very occasionally, find sponsored content here –  always clearly disclosed, with any free samples I received clearly indicated. I work to maintain integrity and honesty in my posts, and only feature brands that align to my own values & beliefs. If a product, book or event has been provided free of charge, then you’ll find it listed as a “sponsored blog post”.  If you take part in a give away or competition on the blog, then it’s likely that the prizes / freebies have been provided for free and it’s important you read the terms and conditions before entering.

Many bloggers will review products they have been sent for free without declaring this to their readers. On all my websites you’ll find a clear disclosure of where items came from. Why do I do this? Because I think it’s important to be transparent about the source of products and services you read about here.

My Instagram and twitter feeds are free of any sponsorship.  I will occasionally retweet things I find interesting, but these are not endorsements. Products featured on my social media feeds are bought and paid for by me. Where I post a photo of a design or a published article, these may feature yarns or products supplied by companies at the request of the publication. Where I collaborate directly with a yarn store, wool company or independent dyer this will be clearly stated in my post. I do not accept money from any organisation in return for recommendations.

I always let companies know I will only review products I liked or that worked (it’s not unheard of for me to return an item if I don’t think my readers will find it useful or if it didn’t do what it promised).

Many of the books I review I buy myself or have been given as gifts, if a book has been supplied for free as part of a review, this is listed as a “sponsored post”.

After I have reviewed a product I’ll either keep it, host a give away on the blog or donate it to charity.

Sidebar features

Every month I highlight some of my favourite brands and discoveries in the sidebar. No-one pays to be featured. If you brand or site is featured I’ll let you know on social media. If you say “thanks”, you’re more likely to stay there longer!

  • Today I have been planning recipes, working on new design commissions - and tidying my small, but perfectly formed  stash of beautiful British wool!
#bririshwool #britishfibre #wool #stashenhancement #minimalism #knittersofinstagram #crochet Slow down, look around you and see the beauty in small things. Breathe fresh air, watch sunsets, make time for friendship, love and laughter. 
A bit philosophical for a wet Tuesday morning, felt the need to remind myself there is beauty in the ordinary. 
#slowliving #naturelovers #foraging #permaculture #homesteading #keepthewildinyou #hedgerows #beautyintheordinary Major dessert envy last night - Mr T chose the baked alaska - need to go back & try this for myself! Delicious food, great service & my "Heaton Mess" was delicious!! Oh and the gin menu - superb! If you find yourself in Newcastle check this place out - Chillingham Rd. Xxx
#heaton #puddinglove #newcastle #eatingout #instafood #foodphotography #bakedalaska Passionflower. One of the joys of our holiday this year was stumbling across the unexpected. We walked past a garden fence covered in these flowers & their ripening fruit. In my schoolgirl French I asked the elderly gentleman if I could take a photo, in better English than my French he invited us in to admire his plot. You can read more about him on the blog, where I've also been writing about how having too much can be a good thing - even if you're a minimalist!

Finally got a photo of me wearing my new sweatshirt, bought from @mirandagorebrowne I ♥♥♥ it so much. The fabric is soft, it fits really well and now washed 3 times it still looks like new! Go buy one before they sell out (also available: "nice buns" & "jammy dodger")
#starbaker #gbbo #kitchenschool #bakemeacakeasfastasyoucan  #bakersofinstagram #baking #lovelythings #instafood #eatme I miss this view so much. Even our current view of sunset over the wheat fields can't compare to a French field of sunflowers!
