I have a lot of opinions. A lot. And I like to state them. But they’re not for sale. I only review products/services that I have personally tried, usually for an extended amount of time, and I do not accept cash payment for product reviews. All of the opinions expressed are entirely my own.

These are just opinions. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider directly. I am not liable for any experiences you may have with any product discussed on my site. Furthermore, Shani and shedreamsinperfectfrench.com are not responsible for content you may experience on external sites.

Product information can change at any time, subject to the merchant/manufacturer
. Posts on a particular product may not be updated after their initial posting. All information is accurate at the time of posting, but please be aware that merchants/service providers can change the availability and/or prices and/or formula of their goods at any time. Please check the entry posting date to see how current the information is. If there is a genuine error in any of the posts, please contact me and let me know.

shedreamsinperfectfrench.com accepts paid advertising in the form of affiliate links, PR samples, sponsored posts, and banner advertisements including ads served through the Google AdSense network. I participate in the ShopStyle affiliate program. All ads on Google AdSense are randomly generated through their ad network based on what they think readers of this blog might be interested in, and in no way indicate my endorsement of the individual products/services. For all forms of compensation, buttons will be placed at the top of each blog post indicating whether or not there is some form of paid advertising present in its content. Here is a legend to help understand (these are not official French terms, I winged some of them):

Affiliermeans there are affiliate links present in the post, which is to say that I earn pennies for each click through and/or purchase someone makes and may eventually get a check if I ever reach $100

Gratuitmeans I received a free product or sample for consideration purposes directly from a brand or vendor

Échantillonmeans I received a free sample that was also available to the general public. This could include fragrance or cosmetic samples from department stores or magazines, brand Facebook giveaways, etc

Sponsormeans that I received some kind of compensated for the post. In general, these types of posts consist of advertorials and sponsored giveaways. This will never include paid product reviews, so as not to influence my opinion. Furthermore, I will only accept sponsored posts for products I’m interested in or think would be interesting to the readers of my site

Achetémeans I bought the product(s) featured in the post with my own hard-earned money (you’re welcome)

If you don’t see any of the aforementioned buttons on a particular post, it either means (a) I have nothing whatsoever to disclose or (b) the post predates the first instance of disclosure buttons on my site (16 December 2013).
