These are my unbiased opinions.  The majority of these products were purchased out of my own pocket, and my recommendations are my own.  In order to remain as unbiased as possible, I rely on my readers for donations and support.  If you find these reviews useful, please consider contacting the involved companies and shops on my behalf and leaving a few kind words, in addition to relevant links.  I would also appreciate it if you contacted me with your questions, thanks, and thoughts, as I often have little idea who reads this blog.  In addition, sharing useful posts to your social networks really helps me expand my audience.
