ItsCarmen.com is a for-profit blog. All affiliate links, PR samples, & sponsored posts are approved by me keeping my readers & blogging integrity in mind. All of the opinions on this blog are my own & not those of the advertiser, affiliate, or company.

Affiliate Links

My blog is part of affiliate advertising programs. This means that if you click &/or make a purchase through certain links on this site or any related social media platforms, I may make a commission from that click &/or purchase. All opinions are always 100% my own. I make sure to feature brands & products I genuinely like.

PR Samples

My blog is PR friendly! Some brands or companies send me items free of charge in exchange for an honest review or product feature. Items marked with an asterisk (*) have been sent to me for PR consideration. All opinions are 100% my own. Rest assured, I will always give a truthful opinion regardless if an item is free.

Press Trips

I work with tourism boards, companies, brands to promote their destination, establishment, etc. Sometimes I am paid to talk about my experiences, while sometimes I may receive free product (like food at a restaurant, free hotel stay, free admission to a museum, etc.) I am always honest about my experience.

Sponsored Posts

A sponsored post means I was financially compensated in exchange for writing the post. These posts will be clearly disclosed in the beginning & end of the post with a written disclaimer. When it comes to sponsored posts, all opinions are 100% my own; I will always speak my mind & remain honest.
