Honest Commentary

The Lifestyle Collective (TLC) is a luxury lifestyle, beauty and fashion blog created by Style Icon Nat (Me!). I write all blog articles featured on The Lifestyle Collective to reflect my creative voice. Some materials may include quotes from individuals I have interviewed for the blog article. I provide honest commentary as part of my product or service reviews to remain faithful to my readership without the intent to offend. The Lifestyle Collective is for those seeking an honest opinion on products or services of similar interest.

Please treat TLC as a platform to acquire constructive criticism and honest feedback. I feature products and services that resonate with me and my audience. Ultimately, my blog aims to inspire and influence you positively, hence why I keep the content authentic and an accurate representation of my daily routine and Lifestyle, in general.

What the Lifestyle Collective Does Not Do

I do not accept guest posts on TLC as I prefer to write my content in a particular style.

Sponsored Posts

I accept sponsored posts for review or styling that have been agreed to, via email, before posting.

I only feature products or services that reflect the nature of TLC. The latter ensures that everything on TLC is featured honestly and because I choose it myself.

I incorporate a link back to the brand’s website I collaborate with, tag the brand and use relevant hashtags in my blog article and social media post. When paid to publish content for transparency and as a legal requirement, I state “Paid Partnership with (brand name)”. When gifted, I comment #gifted. Please visit Advertising Standard Authority website.

To discuss further, don’t hesitate to contact management@styleiconcollective.com or read The Lifestyle Collective’s advertising policy.

 

Gifting Policy

If you would like to offer a free product or service for review or would like me to style a product on my blog article, the Gifting Policy is as follows:

I only accept samples for review or styling that have been agreed to, via email, before posting.

I accept gifts that reflect the nature of my blog and the brand with whom I collaborate. The retail price of the gift(s) must meet the cost of my social media service, i.e. blog, vlog, social media campaign or email marketing.

I will post about a product or service in whatever context (blog or other social media platform) I consider appropriate or based on guidelines provided by the brand with whom I collaborate. Social media content, including a blog post, is published within two to four weeks, including extensive editing and proofreading.

I only feature products or services that interest me and my audience. Additionally, the product or service must reflect the nature of my blog, ensuring that everything featured on The Lifestyle Collective is authentic.
