The links fall into two categories:
- Affiliates (Businesses who pay me a small commission if you travel through my link to them, and purchase something) indicated with an asterisk *
- Other sites I like and think may interest you or be of benefit to you
Feel free to share my site with someone you know who may also benefit? (Your random act of kindness achieved for the day, it’s that easy) I genuinely support these companies, and share the links to help you find what you need in the huge world of the web.
If you use my links I earn a small commission (You may get discount but will never pay more – it’s a win – win). You’re supporting my work, enabling me to continue writing and keep this website and content free to you, thank you!
I am not a nutritionist, travel agent, stylist or lawyer so please take responsibility for your own actions.
