    Affiliate Statement

    In our monthly mailer, The Dispatch, as well as on some of Matilda's Instagram stories, we love to share tips, tricks and products we've found along the way to our readers and followers. We only ever post hand-picked products we truly love and are not paid to include the homewares we write about.

    That said, from time to time we use affiliate links, from which we earn a small commission if you purchase the product through the link provided - this is at no extra cost to you. For further info about the affiliate sites we use, visit Skimlinks or RewardStyle.

    How it works: When you click through a link in our Mailer or Instagram that goes to an affiliate retailer, the URL will recognise that you have come from The Dispatch. If you then love and choose to purchase the product, we may earn a small commission. We carefully hand-pick all of the products, and make sure to support smaller independent brands who aren’t involved in affiliate programmes alongside any affiliate retailers.

    If you have any other questions about our affiliate links, please email us at info@matildagoad.com.
