Thank you for considering Southern Made Simple to feature your product or services! I always strive to provide fun and enjoyable content and reviews for my readers and the companies I work with. I try to focus on providing reviews of products and services that simplify life in some way, while still remaining fun, on-trend and affordable. I also love sharing recipes with my readers, and I even dabble in little DIY project every now and then. I embrace the simplicity, beauty and hospitality of Southern culture to the fullest, and this is something that I am always sharing with others.
Southern Made Simple only provides high-quality, thorough and honest reviews. My readers are very important, so I only put out posts that I am proud of. My followers are mostly made up of women ages 25-34, so I try to keep my content relevant to this demographic. I aim for every post I share to be professional and appealing within every aspect, from creating strong photographs and images to effectively promoting your brand and/or product. You can learn more about myself and this website by visiting my About Me page.

I enjoy creating great recipes to share with my readers, but crafting a recipe post takes a lot of time and effort. I will gladly review/post recipes for you. I require $250 + product/supplies needed to make the dish. I will provide my own original photo(s), and all rights belong to Southern Made Simple.
