Content & Copyright

Thank you for visiting and sharing Live Simply. All original content including site-wide copy, logo, photographs and layouts are copyright Annie Traurig, 2014. You may pin, tweet, and share on other platforms to your heart’s content, but all content must be credited to me and link directly back to me. You may not use any original copy from Live Simply as your own. If you do, I will have no choice other than to accuse you of stealing my brain juices, and accordingly, take legal action against you if necessary. That stuff is precious! Get your own.


In attempts to curate an aesthetically appealing blog, I seek out the most beautiful images I can locate on the interwebs. I make every effort (really, I do!) to credit the original source of such images. If you notice images incorrectly credited, including your own, or if your photo has been featured and you would prefer it not be, contact me at I will happily make any such changes.


Comments left on Live Simply are relished and heartily invited, with the exception of those that are negative, argumentative, or totally obnoxious. Since I own this here shizz, I will delete comments as I see fit (this has happened only twice, btw). You are responsible for all of your activity on Live Simply.


Live Simply does not sell or give out your personal information, email address, or any other information to 3rd parties. Live Simply is not responsible for the content of linked sites.


Live Simply welcomes professional collaborations, including product reviews, giveaways, and sponsored posts. Live Simply periodically monetizes outbound product links through affiliates networks such as LinkShare, Amazon, and RewardStyle. All such partnership opportunities must pass through: the rigorous standards of clutter and necessity that is central to the Live Simply philosophy, the unwavering desire to uphold the integrity and honesty that the blog has possessed since its inception, the genuine care and consideration for Live Simply readers’ best interests.

(Read: I will never endorse products or companies that I believe would clutter or weigh down your life. Doing so would undermine everything I believe in and work so hard to accomplish. I will, however, share products or companies that I believe are remarkable, superior, exceptionally stylish, or that make me so filled with jubilation that I am overcome with the desire to share the news with you. This will never change, so long as Live Simply exists, and regardless of the magnitude and scope the company reaches. There. Now you’ll be able to sleep tonight.)
