Request a review, Review policy and Contact Me.

I am currently open to review requests (updated MAY 2020).

Nevertheless, I only take on requests that I KNOW I can manage and I am 100% enthusiastic about it.  
Please take the time to read the information below, If you have NOT, then I won’t respond to any emails. Having chronic illnesses, my energy levels are extremely low and never at full capability.

While I am reading review requests that are not suitable for my blog, I could be reading.
