FULL PRODUCT & COMPENSATION DISCLOSURE
The purpose of Joyfully Smitten is to be a reliable, welcoming, lifestyle blog centered around life, family and fun. With that, I regularly share parts of our life, products that we enjoy and practices we use in our day to day life. Joyfully Smitten, although a personal lifestyle blog, is also a for profit blog that works with a variety of brands of all shapes and sizes. A large portion of the products I share here are simply because I enjoy them, I purchased them or received them and want to share them with you.
From time to time I am presented with the opportunity to receive compensation either via cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.
Here’s the quick version of what I’m about to tell you:
If I wouldn’t suggest a product to my husband, best girlfriend or mom – I won’t suggest it to you – paid or unpaid. Period. The End. If I’m paid (or could potentially be via a link), I’ll let you know just to give you a heads up because that’s the nice (& legal) thing to do. If it doesn’t fit into that first sentence – you won’t find it here.
I firmly believe in sharing products organically here in this space, making them relevant and never “salesy” I don’t enjoy those posts any more than you do, so I refrain from posting them in this space. When I am compensated to provide opinion on products or services, websites and/or various other topics – I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the my own. This also means if I share a product, service or other item on this site that I didn’t love I will tell you why. If there is ever a product I flat out do not enjoy, it will never be featured here. I believe in being honest with any readers that come into this space. In addition, I will share all information with the readers here – that means, just because I don’t love the product for personal reasons whether it doesn’t fit our family or preferences, I will share why you may like them and allow the reader to decide on their own.
Anytime that I am compensated for a post I will very clearly state it at the beginning of the post. If a product has been sent courtesy of a company without additional compensation, I will simply use “c/o” underneath the product image and provide additional links at the bottom of the page to the business and any additional information I deem necessary to share (i.e. discount codes, etc.)
I occassionally share affiliate links within my posts – if so, I place “I may be compensated if you purchase or use a service within this post” at the end of a post.
The money received from advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other compensation goes back into this blog, and to our family. I appreciate your support, whether it’s reading, commenting, or clicking on links, as well as, understanding.

All of the images on this site belong to Joyfully Smitten, unless otherwise noted. I feel it’s important to give proper credit when I use a photo that is not mine, if you find an image that isn’t properly credited, please let me know. If you would like to take an image, I ask it’s not of my family, and that you link back to my site. Same with if you take my recipes.
All images here are either taken with an iPhone or our Nikon D3200 unless otherwise noted.
All recipes are my own, unless noted. Recipes usually come from inspiration of some sort, however, if a recipe is inspired by someone in a large fashion, I do note that. If for any reason there is one posted that is not mine I will always state is isn’t mine though I put the recipe here on my site, using my words and link by to the original recipe that the inspiration came from. I do this because I use this space to record our favorite things and due to the uncertainty of how long other sites my be on the internet, I keep them here but give credit when due. Any recipes that don’t have an “inspired by” or “credit:” on them are our own recipe – which you will find are most all of them.
