Balance Through Simplicity (previously A Mum in Progress) is a personal blog and website set up to inspire and encourage simple and intentional living. I offer support and guidance through the information shared on my site and the resources that I create.

All the views and opinions expressed in my blog posts are my own. I only review products that I believe may be useful and relevant to my family and followers of my site and blog. I will only recommend products that I have tested myself and feel are worthy of recommendation, or that I have researched and would like to purchase myself.


All the information on this site is exclusively owned by me. It may not be copied, reproduced, distributed or shared in a way that suggests it belongs to anyone other than myself as the author.


Some of the links on my site are affiliate links. For more information about this please read on.

What are affiliate links?

If you click on an affiliate link on my site, and then continue to make a purchase, the company in question will pay me a small commission. For some of these links I will be paid a commission on any purchase you make, whether it is the purchase of that original product that I had recommended or something else, within a set timescale.

Why do I include affiliate links?

I’m a busy mum juggling family and work life and I also put in many, many hours each week managing my website and blog. I hope that my site and blog helps as many people as possible and it is therefore really important to me that I am able to dedicate as much time as I can to creating supportive and inspiring content and really trying to help busy people lead simpler and more intentional lives. To make this happen, I hope one day to be able to work on my blog and site full time so receiving a small commission through affiliate links is just part of this process.

Does it cost the reader anything extra?

There is absolutely no extra cost to you, the reader, for purchasing a product or products via an affiliate link on my site. The commission is paid to me directly from the company who is hosting that product.

Who decides on which affiliate links to include and how is this decision made?

I am the only person that decides which affiliate links to include. All opinions and reviews expressed are entirely my own. I only include affiliate links for products that I have personally tried/purchased or intend to try/purchase. I include them only because I truly believe that they are of benefit to my readers. My site was set up to help others and this remains the true purpose and intention of my site.
