All opinions and views mentioned on shanylou are my own (Shannon Baker) and they are mentioned for information, enjoyment and reviewing purposes only. Everybody has their own opinions and these are mine. I do not wish to offend or insult anybody by what I write concerning products, personal opinions or views; I am just offering my review and opinion on particular products and how they work for me and how I feel about things. If I was sent a product(s) from a company I will always state at the bottom of the blog post. I will never lie about what I think of a product and will always give my 100% true opinion.

I want to create a reliable and trustworthy source of information for all of my loyal readers and I will never be paid  to speak positively about a product if I do not agree. I want my readers to feel as though they can trust what I say, and that they are not being sold products for the sake of it. I too am a blog reader, and I would hate to feel as though someone was lying to my face; therefore I follow the same principal. I will be constructive in my opinions but if I really dislike a product, then I will say so. In some cases, if I really dislike them, I will sometimes choose not to feature them entirely, as it would be a waste of my own time doing so, and the readers time, reading them. I only feature items that I feel deserve to be featured in some way or form.

Any posts written by alternative authors will be labelled as a guest post, otherwise they are all written by myself.

I have now introduced affiliate links to my blog. I am currently using Skimlinks on all linked items to earn a very small commission on product sales. This site therefore uses cookies, like everyone else. I am also using the Shop Style Collective widgets in my blog posts to earn a very small commission and also easy shopping for my readers.

As this blog grows, more and more collaborations and gifted products will be featured in my blog posts. All collaborations will be marked accordingly and all gifted products which have been sent to me will be marked with a ‘*’ unless otherwise stated in the post. I will always include a description of the nature of the blog post at the very bottom which is marked with a ‘I’ in a circle.

The images are included in relevant posts to better the viewers experience and belong to this blog and author. Please do not use any of the photographs for professional purposes or material. If you would like to use any of the images on shanylou, please ask me by using my blog email but please credit and link back to my blog. I will make sure that any external images are credited from their sources. However in case of any discrepancy, please contact me to report the findings. I will immediately take the necessary actions. All contact information can be found in my Contact page.

I am a single person writing this blog. I am in no way managed by a team or company. Everything I post is from my own ideas and I am in no way getting paid for writing content on this blog.
