March 2016 update: Creative Clementine is a lifestyle blog written and edited by Carole Lem (and any approved guest bloggers). Although blogging is tons of fun, is also takes time, effort, and money. After five years of running Creative Clementine out of pocket, I am slowly introducing ways of earning a profit to offset these costs and allow blogging to stay a priority.
All views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own, and there is no commission in the world high enough for me to sacrifice the integrity of Creative Clementine. In the interest of full transparency, see below for official disclaimers.
GIFTS, FREEBIES & SPONSORSHIPS
As owner of this blog, there may be times when I receive compensation for advertising, sponsorship, or promotion of products and/or businesses. I will occasionally accept free or discounted products/services or other forms of compensation. The compensation received will never influence the content, topics, or posts made on this blog or any of my social media. I will always give my (sometimes horrifically) honest opinion and speak from the heart about products and shops. I will do my best to disclose when a blog post pertains to an item received in this manner.
Creative Clementine occasionally uses affiliate links. If a purchase is made through one of these links, I may receive a small commission or other form of compensation. Purchases made through affiliate links do not add any cost to you, the consumer. I do my best to be forthcoming with affiliate links, but there may be instances where an affiliate link is not disclosed.
I have intentionally chosen to be an Affiliate for sources that I trust, and will only link to products that I believe to be awesome. I promise.
- Lagoon Baby: Creative Clementine is an affiliate advertiser for LagoonBaby.ca, a Canadian small business specializing in cloth diapers and other natural products for parents and babies. I chose to enrol in this program because I love the company and what they represent, and want to share them with the world. I am proud to support small business, especially when it is Canadian and eco-minded to boot!
- Well: Creative Clementine is an affiliate advertiser for Well.ca, a Canadian online pharmacy. I chose to enrol in this affiliate program because I think they provide a great service and have a great brand identity. I am proud to support a Canadian company that supports other Canadian companies, as well as being eco-minded.
- Amazon: Creative Clementine participates in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, and Amazon.ca. I chose to become an Amazon affiliate because I am a human being and cannot deny the convenience of Amazon shopping! It's a pretty universal human condition at this point, I think, and whenever supporting the little guy isn't an option, I have no qualms with shopping Amazon.
- Beyond the Rack: Creative Clementine participates in the Beyond the Rack referral program, but is not a member of any affiliate service. By making a purchase through a BTR referral link, you and I may both receive a store credit.
