A North Star in an Eastern Sky is a personal, lifestyle blog run by me. This blog does not run sponsored content and the opinions are always my own.
A North Star in an Eastern Sky does use affiliate links. This means that when you click through, I earn a small commission on whatever you purchase. I will always leave a disclaimer when using affiliate links, and am never paid for link insertion. If I am promoting a product, it is because I genuinely enjoy it. The earnings from this program will go towards buying a domain name and hosting fees -- I appreciate when you shop through A North Star in an Eastern Sky!
