The journal section of this website is meant to be a safe space where I can talk about places I love, books I’ve read, and products I’ve tried. Although I rarely write product reviews anymore I think it is important to note that unless there is an asterisk on the bottom of the post, I was not asked to review whatever product, restaurant, or book the post was about. Unless specified in the post, I have not received any compensation from the company or brand in question.
