Contact me for further information and prices but you must disclose your client before I reply to your email. Please note that I do not offer free advice.

Sponsored Features

I do accept sponsored features in my blog but only if it is of interest to me and my readers. Please contact me using the form on this page with the name of your client. If it is of interest I will email you a copy of the sponsored feature opportunities.

All content is written by me, in my style and format and will say ‘Sponsored Feature’ at the end of the article. My fees are non-negotiable and must be paid in advance of any work taking place via PayPal.

Please contact me for further information and prices but you must disclose your client before I reply to your email.

Please note that I DO NOT ACCEPT GUEST POSTS OR CONTENT WRITTEN BY ANY ONE ELSE.

I DO NOT COVER: vouchers, coupons, discounts, sales, banking, financial, motoring, computer games, gambling, anything overly techy, cleaning products, fitness, sport, health, celebrities, dieting, medical, dentistry, vitamins, tobacco, meat or fish (I’m a vegetarian), alcohol (I’m not a big drinker), or anything political.

Banner Advertising

At present, I do not show banner adverts on my website, although I have in the past. If you are interested in placing a banner advert on my blog I will review your request and let you know if it is of interest to me.

Please contact me for further information and prices but you must disclose your client before I reply to your email.

Video Content

I do not currently include video content in my blog. If this situation changes in the future I will update this information.

Guest Writers and Third Party Content

My blog only features content written by me so I DO NOT ACCEPT content from any other person or company under any circumstances.

Gratuities

Generally, I do not accept any general gratuities. I will not review a product in return for a free gift.

Restaurant Reviews

I do sometimes accept complementary meals to review restaurants if it is a restaurant which is of interest to me. This must be for two people and please note that I am a vegetarian and my guest is fish eater so meaty menus are not of interest unless I can invite additional guests to sample the food.

However, if for any reason, I am not satisfied with the service or food I will not write a feature regardless of whether I have had a free meal. All free meals will be disclosed in the article.

I am a Local Guide on Google so will also write up the restaurant as a Google Review.

If you are a restaurant which is not on my wish list, then I can offer a sponsored feature where the price of the meal is deducted from the fee.

Event Attendance

I have very limited time so I only attend selected events which are in London and during the day.

I do not attend gallery exhibitions or pop up shop openings because I do not write about these in my blog.

I’m unlikely to attend anything which requires smart dress because it is difficult to get me out of my pyjamas.

Please email me your invitation and if I can attend I will let you know. If you do not hear from me this means I cannot attend.

Events and Pop Up Mentions

I do not generally write about events or pop-ups because I prefer my content to have a longer life span. If you do want to pay for a sponsored feature then I would consider writing about the pop-up or event.

I might be able to put a mention on Facebook if your event is relevant to my readers. If you would like me to do this, please send a succinct paragraph with all the relevant information and a website link plus a high resolution j-peg picture which is properly captioned. If I post this on Facebook I will let you know.

Mailing Lists and Newsletters

Please do not add me to your mailing list or newsletter list under any circumstances. Just so you are aware, bulk emails go straight into a spam box which then gets reported as spam.

If you want to get my attention, it is better to read my blog and send me content that you genuinely feel would be of interest to me and that way you will get a response.

Blogger Competitions

I do not enter blogger competitions.

Competition and Giveaway Offers

I do not include competitions or giveaway offers in my blog.

Suitable Editorial Submissions

I can only include content which fits into my blog sections, outlined on my Hello page. Products must be available to buy online from a professional website and not in-store exclusives or in the process of being crowd funded.

I DO NOT COVER: vouchers, coupons, discounts, sales, banking, financial, motoring, computer games, gambling, anything overly techy, cleaning products, fitness, sport, health, celebrities, dieting, medical, dentistry, vitamins, tobacco, meat or fish (I’m a vegetarian), alcohol (I’m not a big drinker), or anything political.

I DO NOT WRITE ABOUT: competitions, give-away offers, awards, surveys, brand campaigns, pop-up shops, exhibitions, events, gallery openings, info-graphics and I do not enter blogger competitions.

Free Editorial Opportunities

I am looking for original and quality content. I write about products I like which fits into my existing blog sections. I require high resolution and good quality professional photography.

I only consider free features for products and businesses I am keen to include but this promotion works both ways so I am looking for social media support in return. This means I am interested in working with businesses that can promote my blog via their social media so at least 1500 plus twitter followers is preferable.

I am usually interested in writing free editorial for the following:

Beautiful Photography Collection: If you have beautiful lifestyle photography of a furniture or homeware collection it might be of interest to me. Photography of real homes and interiors or room make-overs are worth sending to me. To write a descent feature, at least six photographs are preferable to tell a story.

Designer Makers creating beautiful homewares, furniture, lighting, wallpaper, rugs, stationery and gifts or artists and ceramicists.

Interior Trends: If you have an interiors trend story with stylish supporting photography it may be of interest to me.

London Shops: Independent shops or credible stores selling furniture, home accessories, gifts, stationery and lifestyle goods.

London Restaurants: Independent up and coming restaurants and established restaurants with a good reputation.

Collaborations and Partnerships

Please be clear about what it is you want from me so I can give you an informed response – is it free coverage, are you willing to pay for my time and please tell me who your client is.

Blog Audience

I write content for adults and do not include content aimed at mums, pregnant women, babies, children, teenagers, pets or celebrity related.

Buying Products Featured in my Blog

Please note that I write about products, I do not sell them because I am not a shop. If you have seen an item in my blog that you want to buy do read the article where you should find the name of the seller and a link or address. Also check the date of the post to see how long ago it was written. If you get stuck send me an email and I’ll try to help you the best I can.

Once you’ve read the relevant notes above, please email me using the form below. Thanks very much, Homegirl.
