I Offer the Following Promotional Services:

Lifestyle post with products/Giveaways:

  • I require product for posting. Because I want to be able to stand behind our recommendations, I do ask for a review unit. In return I offer well written reviews, clear, enticing photography—and promotion through social media such as twitter and Facebook. Product sent to me will be considered compensation for promotion, and not returned.
  • If you are interested in having me host a giveaway of the same type of product or a different one, I am happy to do so—but please do not send me the prize at the same time as review item. Giveaway prize must be sent directly to winner. I prefer giveaways open to US/Canada.
  • I will promote your product on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. I can direct readers to newsletters or blogs if you choose.
  • If you would like to have specific links added, please let me know prior to me posting the review.
  • Depending on event dates or back-log, items will typically be reviewed within 2 to 3 weeks.
  • Quality photos will be taken by me. I prefer to only use stock photos if I am showing other products in line/from company.
  • Initially, minimum promotion includes: Faceboook, Twitter and Pinterest updates. Reviews will be periodically promoted after initial posting and promotion.
  • I will not pay for shipping or any fees associated with shipping for a review item.
  • Giveaway items must be valued at $50 or more. Gift cards/codes must be valued at $75 or more.

I am most interested in featuring products as part of a lifestyle post, rather than a straight review. Here are topics I am most interested in:

  • gadgets/technology/photography
  • housewares/home décor items
  • kitchen products/cookware
  • cars/transportation for test drives
  • travel destinations (as well as attractions/events and accommodation)
  • I am NOT interested in items for children.

Brand Ambassadorship:

  •  I most enjoy working with a brand or PR company for an extended period of time so that I can have a chance to really share and get to know a product and the company behind it. I would love to be included in your outreach emails.
  • In the past, I have worked with Toshiba as a brand ambassador, and on recurring projects with DYSON, Casemate, DK Canada, Logitech, Redbubble, Rubbermaid, Belkin, and others.


  • for low-value products or ones that I don’t blog about, I am happy to consider sharing my thoughts on them via social media. I can do this on Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and Facebook.

Advertorials/Sponsored Posts:

  • For information that I think would be valuable to my readers, and when appropriate, I am open to posting advertorials/sponsored posts for a fee. My rates range between $200 and $450 for a post I write myself and share on social media. Video creation and inclusion is available for an additional $300.
  • Social media content creation is available for Twitter and Facebook for a fee of $25. My rate for Instagram posts is $50.
  • I do not post press-releases.
  • I include at least 2 links with each post. Extra links can be added for an additional charge. All links are no-follow in accordance with Google’s policies for paid links.
  • I love to style parties, create recipes, and put together DIY projects. My rates for these start at $500.


  • I would be delighted to attend and live blog/tweet from your press event, conference or grand opening. If located within Vancouver, I am available to do so most easily, but for locations elsewhere, I would need some travel expenses paid for.
