Product Reviews Whilst I love working with brands, I am very selective with the companies that I work with and choose to represent across my blog. I will be 100% honest about products sent to me - if I do not like a product then I will not post about it or I will just write a completely honest post about my opinions on it.

As for other sponsored posts, because they are a form of advertisement, the prices will vary depending on the work required to go into them.
