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!

#girlgardener #ediblegarden #naturelover #nofilter When you're enjoying a quiet mug of tea & the sound of geese becomes deafening! Seeing far more fly over the house this year (& occassionally landing in the field, calling to each other then taking off and regrouping as if they have practised for years!! Lots of red admirals in the garden today
#naturelover #redadmiral #butterfly #embracingautumn #girlgardener #wildgarden Sunday loaf. I've always baked bread -  not very successfully - but earlier this year I treated myself to a workshop with Andy, who runs the Coffee Kitchen bakery in Cockermouth. He taught us that bread making can be slow &  gentle, that bread is a living food & that inspired me to keep learning & keep experimenting. This is a 100% spelt sourdough fresh from the oven. Mr T is desperate for it to cool down so he can have a slice, thickly spread with butter! Thanks @thecoffkitchen for all your patience & advice.

Trying to restore my mojo with a walk in the forest, where it's so wet that even the squirrels look miserable! Normally I stop here to drink coffee from my flask, but it's onwards & upwards, then home for dry clothes & hot chocolate!
