This means that a special tracking code is used and that I may make a small commission on the sale of an item if you purchase through one of these links.

When Do I Use Affiliate Links?
If I post an affiliate link to a product, it is something that I personally use, support and would recommend without an affiliate link. Unless noted otherwise, any product I link to is one I have purchased myself and use for myself or my family.
My first priority is always providing resources to help you create positive changes and experiences in your life, and I will only ever link to products or resources (affiliate or otherwise) that fit within this purpose.
Nature of Affiliate Relationships
Please note that while I personally purchase, review and use the products I link to, these products are purchased from third party companies and I do not control these companies or have a financial interest other than an affiliate relationship unless otherwise disclosed.
