Disclosure

One of my biggest goals for An Ideal Life is to collaborate with some of my favourite brands on product reviews, sponsored content, affiliate relationships, and other projects. With that in mind, a disclosure is necessary!

An Ideal Life may collaborate with brands to promote their products or services, including (but not limited to) product reviews, affiliate and referral relationships, and sponsored content on the blog or its affiliated social media pages. In return, the brand may provide monetary payment, discounted or complimentary products/services, and other forms of compensation.

Regardless of any reward received for collaborative content, all opinions on An Ideal Life are my own and reflect my honest feelings about the products and services I use to create my own “ideal life.”

ARE YOU A BRAND LOOKING TO COLLABORATE? LEARN MORE AND REACH OUT!

All posts on An Ideal Life will include an explicit disclosure before the body text reminding readers that references to products and services may contain affiliate or referral links. If the blog (or blogger) and a brand collaborate on a sponsored post, product review, or other compensated content, that relationship will be disclosed as well.

In addition to these in-post disclosures, you can always refer back to this full disclosure, review our affiliate relationships and influencer programs, or peruse some of our favourite products.

Juliette’s books and other projects, including future products created for An Ideal Life, may also be promoted in posts and elsewhere on the blog. She, her publishers, the blog, and other partnerships will be compensated for any sales made through these promotions, as with any other sale.

This disclosure was reviewed prior to publication on 1 January 2021 and is subject to change in the future. The full text, with any relevant changes, will always be available here on the site.

About

About An Ideal Life

If you’re looking to create the life of your dreams, you’ve come to the right place. An Ideal Life is a lifestyle blog sharing my journey of creating my ideal life and inspiring yours along the way.

In particular, I’m working to create an ideal life as a disabled millennial—with all the challenges that come along with these parts of my identity. Terrifying student loan payments? I’ve got them! A pill organiser I *usually* remember to fill? That’s behind the scenes here, too.

The blog includes my favorite products and recipes, tips & tricks I’ve tried, and the tools I’ve utilised along the way. I don’t expect perfection in my own efforts and certainly won’t pressure you to either. But, if you’re looking for ideas, inspiration, or a virtual friend that’s looking to improve alongside you, I’m here to do just that.

Are you a brand or fellow blogger looking to work with An Ideal Life? Learn how we can collaborate!

Need a tasty vegan recipe? We’ve got you covered. Tips for being more frugal? They’re aplenty. Movie suggestions, crystal recommendations, or other new ideas to try? You got it.

To follow along as I create my ideal life, or spark the inspiration you need to create your own, check back for new posts each Thursday or sign up for our email list for content notifications, freebies, and other treats.

About Juliette

Hi! I’m Juliette, the face behind An Ideal Life. I’m a fur mom, writer, poet, spoonie, vegan, and, of course, lifestyle blogger! As I dove into the worlds of personal development, healthy living, spirituality, and other factors that make up my version of an “ideal life,” I couldn’t help wanting to share my journey and what I’ve learnt along the way. And, with years of blogging and writing experience behind me, this website was the perfect way to do just that!
About Juliette @ An Ideal Life

I’ve published six books of poetry to date and run a small press and literary magazine, Nightingale & Sparrow. I’m also a full-time freelancer, creating web content, social media copy, and other copy for a variety of clients and brands.

Looking to hire freelance help? I might be the Right woman for the job!

I love all things cosy, coffee, cats, and Tiffany & Co. When I’m not writing, blogging, or working on other projects, you’ll find me snuggled up with my cat (and ESA), Fitz, playing Stardew Valley, or reorganising my bookshelves for the umpteenth time.
