Lessons Learned is a PR Friendly Blogger! Pitch Me!

Welcome, One and All

I am a full-time Mommy who works out of the home part-time. I am married to the love of my life and together we have 2 children, a toddler and an infant. I am always on the lookout for family-friendly products to review and/or giveaway on my blog.

Some areas I like to focus on include:

Baby and toddler products for BOTH genders - my daughter is 2 and my son is 7-months
Products geared towards children or adults
Household items
Beauty products
Food products
Select adult-themed products *

I always work very hard to provide an honest, detail-oriented overview of a product or service, and like to include many personal photos of these products in use. In addition to my blog, I also utilize several social networking platforms and other blog link-ups to promote all giveaways. My reviews and giveaways always have direct links to any company website pages and/or social media profiles, as requested.

If you agree to host a giveaway, I require all participants to visit your web site and find another product they would enjoy, in addition to the product being given away. Extra giveaway entries may include following the company via Facebook, Twitter, subscribing to a newsletter, "heart" your Etsy shop or following an RSS feed. I list my giveaways using my own Facebook and Twitter accounts, as well as on various online sweepstakes/giveaway sites to maximize exposure of your company and products to my readers and others online.

I take great care and time to properly check out your product and before posting a thorough and personalized review. You can expect the review to go "live" on my blog within 3-4 weeks. If you have a specific time frame for the review, I’m happy to work with your requests.

I generally like my giveaways to last 2-3 weeks from date of post, depending on the type of product. If you prefer a different time frame, I would be more than happy to accommodate in any way that I can.

I ALWAYS provide 100% honesty to my readers in my reviews, and if I experience a problem, I will notify you of these issues prior to posting my review, just in case I may have received a faulty product so that this may be rectified before I share my experiences with my readers.

In the rare case of a negative review, I will contact you by email prior to posting and you will have the option to decline the review post.


A FULL-SIZED PRODUCT must be provided for product reviews. I cannot provide an in-depth or accurate review of most things if sent a small sample size. A full-sized product is necessary in order to gauge effectiveness over several uses. A single use for many products simply is not enough to be able to provide the honesty and detail I promise to my readers.

I will not provide a "blind review" based on images or product information.

Products sent to me for review will not be returned.

In order to post the giveaway, I will need to know what the giveaway prize is and who is eligible to participate (US only, US and Canada, worldwide)

The winner will have 48 hours to respond to my email to claim their prize or a new winner will be drawn. I will provide the winner’s shipping address for the company to ship the prize to.

All giveaway sponsors must agree to ship the giveaway prize directly to the winner within a reasonable amount of time. I am not responsible for any shipping costs.

Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to working together!
