A small rant

Hi dolls,

I have been a little bit upset which is why I have not blogged in a couple of days. If you remember I have posted a review on a feather hair extension and have also done a giveaway that was sponsered by

Well I emailed them the link of my review and giveaway, and they have been pressuring me into doing a video review. They also all of a sudden had a bunch of requirements that I needed to put in my review. As you know, I don't work that way. I do a review my way and don't want to lie to anyone especially not to my subscribers. 

I told them that I am willing to adjust my blogpost review but not too much because I don't want to sound overly positive when I am not. How they wrote their emails to me was very unprofessional. And they kept telling me I had to do a video review. Well I did not want to make a video review as the product is not that special and it is more of a ''fun'' product. The review video probably would have only been 2 minutes long and making the video and also editing the video takes forever so I did not want to do that. Especially because it was the holiday season and there are other more important things to do. 

Now if you get contacted by for a review, just be warned that you get pressured into doing a video review and whilst they tell you at first that the review had to contain the link to the product and their website. Once you receive the product there is a whole list of what you need to mention in your review.

The final email I send to them was saying that if they want me to do a video review that it had the possibility of not being a positive one. Because I was not very happy on how I was treated and how they were pressuring me into making a video. The choice of making a video yes or no is all up to me not you unless my subscribers ask me to do so. After that email they never emailed me back.

I do have to apologize that I will not be able to do the giveaway. I am very sorry to my subscribers I hope you all understand and thank you for entering the giveaway. There will be other giveaways coming up so don't worry.

Now onto the happier news, the European Union has now officially banned all beauty products that are tested on animals! Woohoo!!


  1. Good for you for standing up to them! They've been quite horrible to bloggers who've hosted giveaways for them. They turned down the winners on stupid excuses like the winner didn't like their Facebook page or something. This happened with more than one blogger! They approached me for a review too but I ignored them after reading the other bloggers' experiences. They want to be popular quick, they are getting there but for the wrong reasons. >.<
    I think you side stepped a disaster with no giveaway! Congrats! ;)

  2. It's great that you posted this so there will be no other bloggers would be feeling tricked by them.

  3. That's horrible. Good for you for standing up for your morals. I hate how some companies try to take advantage.

  4. Good for you for not caving to the PR pressure!
