About me & PR/Press Sample

I love beauty blogging as well as blogging about home roasting coffee, diy, gardening, prepping and chatting with my audience, travel, cruising, beach-going and about nail products. It’s therapeutic and relaxing, much like our trips to the beach! Everyone needs a happy place, and these are just some of mine. Feel free to contact me either about your products and services, from cooking, to coffee, housewifey stuff 😉 AND chat and comment about nail trends. I attended Fremont School of Cosmetology, owned and operated vacation rental property with my husband for 11 years, and now retired, but busy as ever!

Disclosure Policy

 This policy is valid from 1 January 2010.
I will always give my honest opinions of all products that I review on my blog! This blog may occasionally accept any form of cash advertising, sponsorship, or paid topic insertions. However, we will and do accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations. No matter what this blog receives, whether sponsored, samples, products for review, self purchased or discounted products, items reviewed on this blog are always honest and of my own opinion.

In compliance with the new FTC Regulations regarding disclosure of relationships between bloggers and brands, you will now see a short disclosure at the bottom of every product review stating whether that the product was furnished by a brand or PR agency with a link back to this Disclosure Policy as reference.

The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the blogger’s 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.

This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest. Unless noted, all product reviews products have been purchased by me.

Site and Content Use

All material on LacqueredLori retains its full copyright. Use of material, either in full, part, or derivative form, without express permission is prohibited. All material, whether found directly on LacqueredLori or taken from an RSS feed is licensed for personal use only. I protect my copyright and take violations seriously. Republication without express permission may result in billing for use of the material, formal notification of the violation to hosts and advertisers under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and other legal action as deemed necessary.

This blog is written and maintained by me, Lori. All opinions posted by me on this blog are my own unbiased thoughts and no monetary compensation has been received for those opinions. I may accept offers to receive products to test and review. However, I will only post my honest thoughts on said products. All products received for review will be marked as “Press Sample” at the beginning of the post. Any posts that are not my personal opinion will be marked as “Press Release” or “Sponsored Post” at the beginning of the post. All opinions are based on my personal experience unless otherwise noted. All statements on this blog shall be viewed as opinion unless otherwise noted.

Photo Rights and Usage:
All photos are property of Lacqueredlori.wordpress.com, regardless of presence or lack of watermark and copyright symbol. You may share my photos on the internet, if you ask and I approve, but you may NOT remove my watermarks from my photos, crop or alter them in any way or legal action may be taken. Link back to the original post or swatch/nail art page for the image when sharing for credit purposes. Failure to do so may result in legal action due to copy right violation. Any unauthorized use of my photos for the purpose of selling products may result in legal action. Email lacqueredlori@gmail.com for photo licensing information.

PRODUCT SIZE: Final note on products provided for blog review. Unsolicited products I receive in sample, mini or demo size in nature are kindly received and honest reviews will be given but no guarantee of a timeframe, to be fair to my preferred full size product review schedule. In reference to nail polish sizes I receive for review, whether indie or mainstream in nature, sizes must be a minimum of 8 to 10 ml in size. Blog reviewers find it awkward to hold, test and photograph ultra mini sample size products and we feel it does not represent a fair and clear display of the product’s potential. Miniature products most often do not represent true size product actually being sold. I feel this is misrepresentation of a product. I work very hard and put a lot of thought into my photo shoots, written reviews and testing of products. Receiving no other compensation for my review other than the product itself, I feel it is only fair to require full size products. It is my goal to provide good product advertisement and exposure. If you have any questions in this regard, please contact me at LacqueredLori@gmail.com.

MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION BOX REVIEWS: I’m now accepting monthly subscription boxes for monthly reviews. These will be reviewed and usually posted within 48 hours of arrival unless otherwise noted.

TURNAROUND TIME: Turnaround time for review posts is up to about a week after receipt of product. Large collections may or may not be featured in one post, depending on heavy photo insertions and my shooting/writing schedule with other manufacturers. Many times single or small collection may be done in as little as 24-48 hours after receiving said products when arriving Monday through Thursday. I look forward to reviewing for you!
PR and Press Releases:

Public Relations

Press Releases

I love to hear about and update my followers about upcoming collections. If you’d like me to feature your new collections press releases as part of my New Products Sneak Peak, add me to your media list. Let me know the date the information is releasable.

Product Reviews

I only review products that I’m excited to try. This does limit the chances of an unfavorable review, and I’m very fair and upfront. However, receipt of a product does not guarantee the review will be favorable, but I promise to convey these are my personal opinion and what may not work for me may be great for others. I will always provide honest feedback to my readers. All items received are for consideration only and do not constitute a contract for a published non-sponsored post. Products will typically be reviewed in the order received, and generally within 48 hours of delivery. The source of products in all posts will be clearly identified per FTC Guidelines.

Any products that may be sent to me for review will result in all opinions being my own and were not influenced by-product company. When contacting me, please disclose a ballpark timeline and preferably a tracking number so I have a good idea when to expect your package. Please email me for my mailing address at lacqueredlori@gmail.com.
