Affiliate links

Some (not all) links on New York For Beginners are affiliate links. This means that, at no additional cost to you, we might earn a small commission if you click through and make a purchase. This helps cover our server costs and keep New York For Beginners going. Thank you for your ongoing support!

Please note that all the links on the Shop NYFB page and our shoppable posts include affiliate links that help us keep up with our writing work.


We have personally tested and can honestly recommend all items featured on this blog. After all, we are journalists and have been in the industry for nearly a decade, so we like to share our latest finds!

Please note that we only accept PR samples for editorial consideration and we never write a post in exchange for a product, service or experience. We do not accept in-kind compensation. This means that samples are not guaranteed to be reviewed unless they meet our personal standard and we can honestly recommend them. As we are professional reporters, receiving a sample doesn’t influence our decision to feature a brand, and we only accept samples for editorial consideration. Also, in the rare event that we include a sponsored post, our opinions are still our own. All sponsored posts are conspicuously disclosed for your convenience.

All posts written on this blog are based on our own personal experiences and opinions. In our reviews and our articles, you will find our notes about which products are best suited to each skin type, our favorite foods or those places in NYC that stole our heart. Feel free to leave us a comment to ask any and all questions about our experiences. We are glad to help!


Although New York For Beginners started as a blog in 2016, our current website now also includes our work in a previous site dating back from 2008 called Mi Reino Por Un Gloss, that you can find under the Spanish tab.

If you would like to use it for a blog roundup, a client’s website, or any other fair usage, please drop us a line and make sure you link back to our original piece with a do-follow link. We are happy to share the love!

For those who asked, most of our images are our own, taken with our phone cameras (currently an LG G6). In some occasions, we might use stock photos that we purchased or images supplied by the brands. Please refrain from using our pictures without our explicit permission. You might be incurring in copyright infringement from third parties as well.

The Nitty-Gritty (All of the Above in Legalese)

This website is a personal blog and it is not a business. In order to support our efforts, New York For Beginners might include affiliate links, which will be properly disclosed in the text.

This blog doesn’t accept product exchange for reviews; samples are never accepted as barter or in-kind compensation. Samples are considered work ustensils and we reserve the right to discard them or donate them to charity after we have finished our testing.

There is no compensation received that may influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog.

Samples are considered work utensils and are in no case an exchange for a blog post or any other publication. If a company decides to send me a PR sample, please note that I might or might not write about it, and I will do it only if I can honestly recommend the product.

Also, the majority of the posts are general pieces of information, where no product has been tested, with the only intention of informing my readers about beauty, lifestyle, fashion, DIY, or NYC-related news.

The owner of this blog is not compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics.

All content provided on this blog is for informational purposes only. We always give our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products.

The owner of this blog makes no representations as to the accuracy or completeness of any information on this site or found by following any link on this site. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question. The owner will not be liable for any errors or omissions in this information nor for the availability of this information. The owner will not be liable for any losses, injuries, or damages from the display or use of this information. Also, none of the posts constitute medical advice.
