Review & Giveaway Policies


  • I review family-friendly products only and reserve the right to refuse the review if you send a product that was not agreed upon.
  • Reviews (currently) are FREE of charge as long as the product’s value is $50+ or you include an additional item or freebie coupon for a giveaway. If you wish for a product to be reviewed that is valued under $100, I will request a $50 payment.
  • A product is required for all reviews and will not be refunded.
  • Whenever possible, I request you offer an additional product for me to give away to my readers.
  • I do not accept sample sizes for review. Full-sized products are required so I can adequately test out the product.
  • I am not responsible for any shipping or duty costs. Any packages shipped COD will be refused and returned to sender.
  • Please allow 2 to 6 weeks for your review to be completed. It will most likely take less time, however, I want to make sure adequate time is provided to complete the review.
  • I will send you an email with the link to the review once it has been posted.
  • In the case of a negative review, I will contact you prior to posting and you will have the option to decline the review post. However, all products sent for review will be kept. If you decline the review post and have offered an item for my blog to give away, you have the option to rescind the offer.
  • You are welcome to add a discount or coupon code to the review at no charge. Discounts that require a separate post will be subject to a fee.


  • Giveaways will always be held on the Optimistic Mommy’s blog. Readers will be able to enter through a Rafflecopter form.
  • If you offer a product to give away, I request that the product be sent directly to the winner of the giveaway. When the winner has been chosen, I will inform you of their name, email and shipping address. Winners will be limited to the United States unless you have previously agreed to ship outside of the US. Because of laws regarding minors, I also limit giveaways to those who are 18+.
