This policy is valid as of December 31, 2013. This blog is meant to be a guide for those seeking to have an amazing natural hair journey, live life naturally in beauty and with modest fashion and as well be rounded in arts and lifestyle. Afroniquely You is written and edited by Sasha-Shae Shaw-Weekes (owner). For questions about this blog, please be sure to contact me. Afroniquely You accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship or other forms of compensation and participates in affiliate programs where possible.
As the owner of this blog, I may be compensated to provide content about products, services, websites and various other topics. Although I receive compensation for some posts or some advertisements, I stand by always giving my honest opinions, critiques, opinion, and/or experiences on those topics or products. I can and will only endorse products or services that I believe are worthy of being endorsed.
The views and opinions expressed on this blog belong purely to Sasha-Shae Shaw-Weekes, and any respective guest authors. All product claims, statistics, quotes or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question, though I will do my best to make sure that any information provided is completely accurate.
I believe in transparency and honesty in all relationships, opinions and associations. Because of this, any of the content, advertising space or post that comes with compensation via product, service or cash will be clearly identified as a paid or sponsored content. You will see me identify those content as follows:
(aff): Affiliate links, which means if you purchase a product after clicking on any of these links, I will receive a commission on the sale, for which I am grateful.
(i bought it) This is for any product or service I bought of my own free will and have decided to share my honest opinions and feedback about here on the site.
(review): I received the product or service to give my honest opinion and thoughts about it. What I write or vlog is a complete reflection of my honest interaction and usage of the product or service. I am in no way under an obligation to write a favorable or positive review, as I want all my reviews to be 100% honest at all times. I try my best to sift through products and services that I feel is not a fit for Afroniquely You or my readers before agreeing to do a review. Whenever a review is done, it will be thorough, fair and a balanced opinion of the pros, the cons and if it’s worth it.
(sponsored opp): This is a sponsored opportunity in which a company or PR firm paid my way to an event, sent me on a trip, or otherwise had sponsored me via a product, service or compensation for my time. In return as a part of their sponsorship package, they might have requested that I write a review or series of postings about their products or services on my site. These posts or series are completely of my own opinion and I am not obligated to write a favorable or positive review.
(sponsored post): This is a post in which I have been directly compensated for publishing it on my site. The post has either been written by an advertiser or by me, and will be clearly stated as to which it is.
