Affiliate links are used on this site. This means that when you click the link on my site (for example, and Amazon.com link) and make a purchase, I could earn a small percentage of commission for your purchase. This does not charge you any more than it would normally, it’s just a thank you from the site for referring traffic. I use affiliate links because it’s a way that I can afford to bring you great content for free.
Your policy will be approved and published as long as it doesn’t contain the following: spammy links, hateful or hurtful language, or irrelevant content. I reserve the right to delete any comment on my site.
I’d love for you to share about ideas from Desert Chica! If you wish to share any posts or photographs from this site on your blog or website, you may use one picture with a link to the original post. Please do not repost/duplicate the whole post/tutorial or distribute printed content without written permission from the original author. Please email me at KarenHeffren(at)gmail.com if you have questions or requests. I also love to know when you are featuring my content.
I sometimes review products or services without being compensated. I do this so that I can share my thoughts on these products with you. I will sometimes receive free products or services to review, and will only write about those products if I can do so in an honest way. If I were to receive a product that I did not care for I would not recommend it to you. Sometimes, I receive monetary compensation to write about a product, service, or business. I may tell you about a product that I haven’t had personal experience with.
I close giveaways within 24 hours of them ending unless an emergency comes up. I’ll contact the winner via email and the winner will have 48 hours to contact me back unless otherwise noted in my email.
