Disclaimer and a word on integrity: All products I talk about here on L’Amour et la Musique are purchased with my own money, unless I explicitly mention that it was gifted from a brand. I will ALWAYS be fully transparent about any products given to me for review, that I did not seek out or purchase of my own accord. It is one of the biggest issues I have with YouTube – that many bloggers and YouTubers have just become a means to market products. That’s not why I do this. All opinions expressed are entirely my own, and I strongly value honesty and integrity in real life and here on YouTube.
