In the interests of full disclosure, the lace-like design of the dress in the header graphic was created using brushes from Starwalt Designs, more specifically their “distressed leaf” Photoshop brush set.
I treat others respectfully, attacking ideas and not people. I also welcome respectful disagreement with my own ideas.
I believe in intellectual property rights, providing links, citing sources, and crediting inspiration where appropriate.
I disclose my material relationships, policies and business practices. My readers will know the difference between editorial, advertorial, and advertising, should I choose to have it. If I do sponsored or paid posts, they are clearly marked.
When collaborating with marketers and PR professionals, I handle myself professionally and abide by basic journalistic standards.
I always present my honest opinions to the best of my ability.
I own my words. Even if I occasionally have to eat them.
Donate to web hosting
I am currently accepting donations towards the cost of web hosting.
Any and all donations are appreciated, and go directly towards my web hosting costs, and cannot be cashed out, so no worries about me spending them on late-night snacks or non-diet sodas. :)

Text Ad (140 Character Limit)
- Advertising Standards:
All adverts will be placed at my own discretion. If I do not wish to place your advert, you will receive a full refund, minus any PayPal charges. Any and all adverts which are placed on my website will be helpful or interesting to those who visit the site, and I will not accept any adverts for products or websites which I believe will not be beneficial to my visitors.
If you would like any further details about the traffic flowing through FATGIRLslim, you can email me at email@example.com and I will reply to any serious enquiries made in relation to advertising.
Typical visitors to FATGIRLslim are women of all ages, looking for information on healthy living, or who are interested in either losing weight or following the story of somebody who’s on a weight-loss journey.
- Any link I make to a product within an entry does not imply my endorsement of that product.
- Any link made to a product within an entry will be marked as an endorsement if it is recommended by myself.
- If I link to an item in the course of an entry, such as to amazon.co.uk or any other website, and I have received complimentary or monetary compensation for placing the link, I will mention this within the entry.
- Any reviews which I perform on the site will be on products that I have bought with my own money, unless otherwise stated. They will be of my own choosing, and I am not obligated to do any reviews unless I wish to.
- If you would like me to review your product on FATGIRLslim, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will pass on my details.
- The complete review will appear on the front page until it is knocked off by the entries after it. There are 10 entries on the front page, and I tend to post 2 entries per week, which means your post should be on the front page for 5 weeks, but I cannot guarantee this. It will be clearly marked as a review, and the item in question will be mentioned on the front page. This means that uninterested parties can skip the review if they wish. A link to the review will then be included in the right-hand sidebar “Product Reviews” widget, which is on every page of FATGIRLslim.
- If I do review any item, I will state whether or not I have received monetary or complimentary recompense for the review. If you send email me about reviewing your item, I will email you a link when the review goes live on the site.
- Receipt of a solicited item guarantees a review, although I give no guarantee as to when said review will appear on the site, I will try to post the review as soon as possible.
- Receipt of unsolicited items does not guarantee a review, although I will give it my best shot to get around to it.
- I will give my best and most honest, unbiased opinion in every review.
