All content on A Sweet Muddle reflects my personal likes and interests. I only ever mention a particular book, brand or product, where it is relevant to the recipe or story I’m sharing.
To date, no sponsored posts have featured on A Sweet Muddle, however I may choose to collaborate with certain brands in the future, provided the product is a good fit for A Sweet Muddle and something I believe will be of genuine interest to you, my readers. Any sponsored posts featured on this site will always be disclosed as such and will always honestly reflect my personal opinion.
I am a member of the Amazon affiliate program. If you decide to buy something using a link I’ve included in a post that leads to Amazon, it is likely that I will receive a small sum at no additional cost to you in the form of a commission. Presently any small amount I receive goes towards to the costs of producing content for A Sweet Muddle and maintaining this site. Thank you for your support!
