Sadly, I currently have nothing to disclose. Any recommendations made, products mentioned and links to other sites from this blog are purely from the goodness of my heart and based on my personal taste.

I have received free items (“swag”) as a guest blogger on other sites in the past in lieu of payment, but not for at least 5 years, and not for anything currently mentioned in this blog. In my past, pre-minimalist life, I worked part-time as a film make-up artist and contributed make-up related articles/interviews to Lucire and Make-Up Artist Magazine, and also to LA-Story, Beauty Buzz, and Privilege Magazine blogs. All swag previously received was beauty industry-related, which is not the focus of this blog.

UPDATE (8/12/2010):

Stevie Wilson, whose super-popular blog LA-Story.com is referenced above, was kind enough to feature Minimalist OC on her blog. Check it out here! Stevie and I have been friends for some time, and I have guest-blogged occasionally on her sites. Stevie is a big name on the Los Angeles scene – she always knows what’s hot and happening. Thanks, Stevie, for your support!
