SITE POLICIES

Editorial Policy

Here at Simply Peachy, I only publish what I love and think are peachy! I personally edit and review all editorial content and screen all applications for each sponsor/vendor accepted into our vendor directory. The integrity of the Simply Peachy brand is of the utmost importance so I only accept sponsorship requests and accept vendor applications from companies that I believe share Simply Peachy’s chic aesthetic and commitment to quality and creative work. I make sure that each and every sponsor/vendor is right for the site and for my lovely readership.

At Simply Peachy, I have traditional advertisers (banner ads), contextual affiliate links, and on occasion, sponsored posts. If at anytime Simply Peachy accepts money for promoting a product or vendor, I will disclose it. All sponsored posts are marked as such. Regardless of the type of sponsorship, I only work with brands and companies that I feel are a good fit for the site and my readership. 

An affiliate link means that I receive commission on sales of the products that are linked to in my posts. So if you click on a link and make a purchase from an affiliate site, then I may make a commission from that purchase. The content of my posts are all items I genuinely love, and are not influenced by advertisers or sponsors. 

There will be times where Simply Peachy sponsors/vendors will be featured in real weddings, engagements and other features. However, unless specifically disclosed as a sponsored post, these features and links are solely based on the quality of the work and are not paid editorial content. Sponsorship does not in any way guarantee editorial coverage and sponsors do not receive special preference with regard to editorial consideration.

All of the content on Simply Peachy is published with the best information I have at the time of publication. However, product offerings, websites, and businesses do change, so I cannot guarantee that all archived links and content remain accurate as of the time of reading.

If you have an item you’d like to submit for feature on Simply Peachy, find out how to do so using our submissions page.
