Public Relations

Since bloggers integrity is often questioned, I decided to create this page, in order to clarify some points and to be totally transparent towards my readers and towards brands with whom I and I will have the opportunity to work with.

OWNERSHIP 

Everything that you see and read on the site A Hint of Rose has been created by myself. Occasionally, it happens that my boyfriend takes pictures for me, but I make the rest of the work. Obviously, I’m aware that my images and my posts can be shared on the internet and I have absolutely no problem with that. However, the site A Hint of Rose is my intellectual property and is protected by the Canadian and international legislation on intellectual property. Basically, this means that I ask you to link back to this site as the source.

PRODUCTS SENT TO REVIEW / GIFTS 

As a blogger, I have the chance to receive samples and gifts from some brands. These products are offered to me for free, because brands hope that they might have a place in my posts. I consider myself extremely lucky, and I appreciate every single offer, but I want you to know that I am very selective about the products that I accept. My number one rule is to only accept products that I would buy myself and that I will be comfortable to promote on my site. Your trust is so important to me, so be sure that all opinions shared on this site are mine and are completely sincere. If I don’t like a product that was sent to me, I can decide to just not talk about it, or I can decide to give my honest and humble (and potentially negative) opinion about it, according to the preferences of the brand.
As of 01/09/2015, and because I want to be completely transparent with you, I will identify any item that as been sent to me with an asterisk (*).

AFILIATE LINKS 

Like many blogger, I often use affiliate links. These links allow me to earn a (very small) commission if you buy a product by clicking on the link I provided. I personally don’t have any problem with bloggers who use such links, it’s important to remember that unlike paper magazines, read a blog is totally free and bloggers have to pay rent too…
If you don’t want to see these links, you still have the possibility to download Ad Blocker. Just be aware that these links are there to make your life easier, and to redirect you to the product in question, and if you decide to buy it then I will receive a few pens.

SPONSORED POST / LINKS 

As mentioned in the section « Products sent to review / Gifts », the trust of my readers is extremely important to me. So I set myself a few rules to follow when it comes to include a sponsored post or links on my site. First, I do not accept any pre-written text, I spend a lot of time an energy (maybe too much) to create content for this site, content that I want to be completely true to my style and personality. I want my personality to show through my images and my posts. This is my canvas, my property, and be sure that I am behind every single word you read. Second, I do not accept compensation for guaranteed positive reviews. This means that I will never lie to you for money.

My prices depend according to the work they require and the presence on social media too. For further information regarding to my price card, please contact me at the email address: ahintofrose@gmail.com

TIMESQUALE BETWEEN THE RECEPTION OF AN ITEM AND ITS REVIEW 

I ask to companies to be comprehensives to me. As a fashion and beauty blogger, I can sometimes receive a large amount of products, and it may take some time before I can make a honest review. Moreover, when it comes to skincare, I like to take my time and test the effectiveness of the product. Also, if some products are not reviewed on my blog, they can be featured on a video on my Youtube channel.

DISCLAIMER 

I’m not an expert in beauty, a coach or a chef, I just want to share my thoughts and passions with others and inspire them. For that reason, I can’t be responsible for the consequences of an interpretation of something I said.

MODIFICATIONS 

Some modifications can be made to that page. I encourage you to visit this page from time to time, in order to know the changes. If you have any question about the term presented above, or if you want to work with me, please contact me at the following email address: ahintofrose@gmail

My prices depend on a lot of factors, so do not hesitate to specify me all your conditions in your email! Also, be aware that I receive a lot of email during the day, so it may take a few days to get an answer, but I’ll make sure to answer you as soon as possible. Finally, if you have an urgent enquiry, please include “IMPORTANT” in the subject line.
