Why is your blog called Salt & Sparkle?

Life can get pretty humdrum. And, it is not even a case of us letting it become that way; it sorta just slips up on us without point or notice. In essence when life gets like that all it really needs is a touch of seasoning - a little salt, and a pinch of sparkle to bring back colour, depth and joy.  Salt & Sparkle for your life is what I hope you will find on our website.

Can I link to your blog?

Sure, I would be absolutely delighted!  Write and let me know that you have. 

Do you accept review copies of books or products for consideration?

Yes, I do accept review copies & products please do get in touch hello@saltandsparkle.com to tell me more.

I’m extremely particular about the brands I work with and only partner with companies/products that are a natural fit for Salt & Sparkle.   I only want to share about things on my site that I love, believe in and would buy on my own.  

I decline many of the offers that are sent to me.  Unless clearly marked as “Sponsored” post, I am not compensated by any of the brands featured on the site. Additionally, you can read my site’s “Privacy Policy”

If you purchase the product or service I referenced next to the link you clicked I may receive an  "affliate commission".  Regardless of whether I receive a commission, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

I don't endorse anything I have not or would not use myself.  When I review recipe books, I cook several of the recipes in the book before writing about it.

Can I use some of your photos on my website?

Of course you can. Please just make sure to link back to my blog - www.saltandsparkle.com as my images are all copyrighted. 

Can I use some of your written content on my website?

I do not permit the re-posting of my posts in their entirety.  You can extract and re-post less than 200 words on any other site, provided you link back to my original post, and credit me as the author of the extraction.
