In the interests of Keeping It Real, Kimba Likes has a full disclosure policy when it comes to products, brands and companies with which I have a relationship.
If I’ve been gifted product or services to enable me to test them in order to review on Kimba Likes, you will know about it. If I’ve received payment in cash, it will be clearly marked as a sponsored post. If you read about products or services or companies or brands on Kimba Likes and you don’t see the words “gifted”, “product provided for review purposes” or “sponsored”, then you will know I’m talking about things I’ve purchased with my own money because I love them. Products gifted to Kimba Likes or provided for editorial consideration will be clearly identified.
Of course, you can be assured that if I have received something for review purposes, you will not read about it on Kimba Likes if I didn’t like it. I will not publish a sponsored post if I do not love the product, company, brand or service. It has to pass the Kimba Likes Test. Do I like it? Would I buy it again with my own money? Do I think my readers will like it?
Yup. That’s right. Kimba Likes is my name and my brand and my integrity. If I don’t luff it, I will not post about it. I will turn down cold hard cash because my opinions and my integrity aren’t for sale.
All images are copyright Kimba Likes. If not, they will be linked back to source and credited.
I may earn commission if you purchase from affiliate links in posts. Thank you if you do choose to do so. It helps to keep Kimba Likes in hair accessories and coffee and to cover running costs.
That’s the Kimba Likes Keeping It Real policy. You can trust Kimba Likes to keep it real. That’s how we roll, baby.
Kimba Likes PR Policy
I am more than happy to accept product for editorial consideration. Delighted in fact! I have a particular interest in family, entertainment, beauty, style, fashion and lifestyle products, services and brands.
As discussed in my Keeping it Real Policy, I will always disclose which products were provided for trial and review. I will deal with all product provided honestly and with integrity, but there are no guarantees that your product or service will appear on Kimba Likes. Products provided for editorial consideration, if I think my readers will love them, are likely to be featured in a round up post with other brands.

Kimba Likes Comment Policy
I’m channelling Paul Roos for my comment policy. Simply put, it is a “No D**heads Policy”.
I love debate, encourage it in fact. I welcome constructive criticism and feedback. You can tell me nice things too – I won’t mind.
Don’t like something you’ve read on Kimba Likes or disagree with me? Great. By all means, leave a comment to let me know.
I have published my Keeping it Real Policy and you’d better believe that I follow my own rules. However, sometimes I make an editing error – please let me know if you find inconsistencies. Pobody’s nerfect, after all.
However, I won’t put up with bullying, mean girl behaviour nor just plain rudeness. Kimba Likes is my space and I love that it has become a space for a community of like minded fabulous people. It’s fluffy and fun and frivolous – just the way I like it.
Therefore, I reserve the right to delete any comments that are nasty. Especially in relation to comments left by readers.
Please play nice or go home. I’m very protective of my gorgeous Kimba Likes community.
