Beauty in the Mess is a personal blog written and edited by me, Whitney. For questions about this blog, please contact me at whitneycornelison(at)gmail(dot)com.

Beauty in the Mess accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.

I created Beauty in the Mess as a place to be able to encourage others and to provide resources to help make life a little easier, healthier, and more enjoyable.  I look through and try lots of resources so that I can bring you only the best of what I find. We all know that our time is valuable. I am here to help you make the most of it.

Any of the information you receive is for educational purposes only. Please do your own research and seek the advice of a qualified professional. Any information you receive from my blog is NOT intended to diagnose or treat any conditions.

Beauty in the Mess abides by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.

At times I receive free products in exchange for a review. Other times I am simply sharing a great product that I bought and think you could benefit from it too. Like I share product recommendations with friends.  I always give an honest opinion about a product so you can make an informed decision about that product.

Some of the links you click to purchase items will be affiliate links. That simply means that the company will pay me a small percentage of the sale, at no cost to you. It’s a way that you can help support me and my family. We greatly appreciate you!

I will and do accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets and other forms of compensation.  It does cost to operate this site, so the compensation received helps to maintain the upkeep. It also helps to pay for training and educational expenses that I may obtain in order to be a more proficient writer and blogger.

I am sometimes compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. I will always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Web site. These companies may use aggregated information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, please see: http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp

Just remember that I will never promote products that I do not believe in. Whether I am compensated or not, my opinions will always be honest.

Thank you for being a part of our community and for supporting the continuation of Beauty in the Mess.
