This is a personal blog owned, written and edited by Valerie Lugonja.
I work to provide an honest and personal opinion and assessment of all promotions, events or products. I rarely publish negative reviews because I don’t write about what I don’t like. I am a promoter, not a demoter. However there will be realistic feedback that may include suggested improvements.
Most of my work is self initiated, but I do write for a living and on my site, expect to be well compensated for promotional posts; other forms of compensation can be negotiated at times.
I do get promotional materials and “free stuff” sent to me. Sometimes, unexpectedly. (Please ask me first, to avoid disappointment.) I will only write about what I like that is aligned with my personal food philosophy.
I will always disclose, at the end of the post, if anything was given to me or paid to me for writing the article.
My reviews will not be sent to the brands prior to publishing; my true opinion of the product will be reflected. If I don’t publish a review, it is because I don’t write about what I don’t like, remember? I will l provide a full private review to the brand company.
I am consistently looking to work with brands of high-end kitchenware. Currently, All-Clad and Emile Henry are two brands that I have endorsed.
