Paula Huie ~ Product Junkie
Hi! I’m thrilled you’re here – because we are a lot alike, you and me. We’re both trying to make a life we love and love what we do. My name is Paula; I have a BA in Business Management and Administration through the University of Western Ontario. I’m a married to my childhood friend Jason. Together we parent 4 wonderful humans: An adult child, on his way to becoming an Electrical Engineer, two teens, One starting college September 2015 to become a video game developer (I’m still in shocked that this is really a job), one still in High School and a preschooler.
Being a mom to 3 boys, I’ve had more than my share of bumps, burps, stitches, dirt, bugs, bad gas and smelly feet. Product Junkie is an online product lifestyle destination where Products and Passions meet. I have talent for weaving unique, organic family experiences with the products we use, Love, and encounter everyday.
Authentic, funny and inspirational, Product Junkie is a great way to discover the latest new products to hit the market as well as fun events and travel destinations.
It doesn’t stop there… I also love to offer exciting opportunities including giveaways and contests.
PRODUCT JUNKIE’S MISSION:
My goal is to add more value to your world than you ever dreamed possible by giving you inside information on new products and services as they come my way.
Social media is a people business, and I’m a people person.
PRODUCT JUNKIE’S VISION:
Have you ever stopped to think about why you are on social media? For me, it has always been about connecting with people, learning from my community, and contributing to that community. Page views, subscribers, followers and fans are never a standalone goal. They are a means to an end — the promise of a potential connection.
Hard work– But you have to be willing to throw it all away for love and family.
No drama – Check your drama at the door.
Acceptance – No judgment lives here.
Honesty – Mean what you say, and say what you mean. Don’t be afraid to tell it like it is.
Wearing my heart on my sleeve – I can’t help that I’m human.
Embracing what’s next – Life is all about taking risks and seizing opportunities.
But mostly – Social Media should be fun, enjoyable and give you exactly what you’re looking for.
PRODUCT JUNKIE’S REVIEW POLICY:
Product Junkie will review products that relate to children (Adult children, Teens and Toddlers), House & Home, Health & Beauty, Fashion, Pets, Consumables, and Travel.
Feel free to contact me to ask if your product or service would be a good fit for my family or my readers. I reserve the right (Don’t be offended) to decline any product to review if I feel it may not be appropriate or meet Product Junkie’s standards.
- Products sent for review must be new, full size, and unused or open.

- Products provided for review purposes will not be returned.
Please contact me before sending any products for review: firstname.lastname@example.org
All opinions expressed are 100% my own personal and honest opinions. They are formed as a result of my own and/or my families personal use and experience with the product or service. While I am a Product Junkie and appreciate being able to test out some pretty awesome products, I will NOT give a guaranteed good review in exchange for the product or service.
Unless otherwise stated, all products that I review are purchased by me. If I receive a free or discounted item, a sponsored item, or am financially compensated in any way, it will be disclosed at the bottom of each post.
Whether Product Junkie chooses to give an unfavorable review, a favorable review or no review at all, there will be no payment for any product or service given to me for review. My opinion of a product will not be influenced if I receive it for free or with a discount for reviewing it.
I am not a fan of posting unfavorable reviews. In the event of an unfavorable review, Product Junkie will notify the sponsor and provide the draft to review for prior approval/notification before publishing.
I prefer to work with your brand, product or service when possible. I will supply feedback in effort to help improve any issues and allow the company to rectify any problems or concerns as they would a regular consumer. Sometimes, it’s not that something went wrong, its how the company stepped to the plate to resolve the issue that matters most.
