i’ve been steering away from product reviews and sponsored posts over the past year or so.
i did enjoy writing for the blogher/Huggies campaign, which was great because the content was ad-free [had nothing to do with Huggies, but was just baby-centric posts] and because — well, the extra funds really helped during a year with a lot of expenses. i justified the purchase of our treadmill with those checks, and to this day i am still thrilled with the purchase even though it’s been weeks since my last indoor run [not sure why!].
ANYWAY. this post is not about finances or diapers [by the way, we don’t even use Huggies, except for their swim diapers! sshh.] i just wanted to say that in the future, you will only see ‘sponsored’ references that are:
— a truthful and balanced review of something that i actually was interested in trying out
— related to causes and/or people that i personally believe in.
which takes us to today’s shameless plug:
she opened up her brick & mortar store in cary, NC nearly 1 year ago. and now, yarn addicts from farther away have the option of perusing her wares from afar. she specializes in fancy hand-dyed yarns, many from small home-grown operations themselves, but also carries some standard brands. i can’t say much more because i have no idea what i’m talking about, because i’ve never knit anything in my life. but her store looks like the kind of place i would want to shop if i were into yarn! and i figured perhaps some of you are, so . . . just wanted to throw it out there.
she is offering you all a 10% discount on top of the rewards program that they have ($15 off of $150), so really you all could score a total of 20% off!
just head to the shop
and enter the code: shubox
the code is only good until 8/15. you will have to let me know if you check it out!
more later from miami. getting [sort of] settled. feeling completely scattered. apparently moving to a new place with about 2 hours/day to get anything productive done will do that to you . . .
