November 2021 Treatbox UK Reveal and Review

The time has quickly come around and here we are again with the start of a new month, meaning of course a new Treatbox Reveal and Review. The November Treatbox was a well thought out themed box with some new items never before seen in Treatbox! How exciting! Let’s see what was inside…

What was inside the box for November 2021?

Blue Star and Moon Socks
Two Star Hair Clips in an Organza Bag
Treatbox Original Hot Chocolate Recipe Card
Two Bags of Clipper Natural “Snore and Peace” Infusion Tea
Vitamasques Morning Goggle Eye Mask to Brighten and Protect
Gardner’s “Keep Smiling” Vegan Blue Iced Star Biscuit
Treatbox Original Dark Blue and Moon Zip Up Pouch / Bag
Treatbox UK November Calendar Print

My Opinion on the November 2021 Treatbox

I first want to say how much I loved the theme of this box, moons and stars, was really lovely!

The items were all of great quality, nice to see some Vegan friendly pieces and things we had never had before in a Treatbox! I am someone who loves to wear socks so I always enjoy getting new ones. I look forward to eating the Vegan biscuit and enjoying a cup of tea. I will also try the hot chocolate but I will make mine with dairy free milk 😉


The hair clips are very pretty and a nice treat to brighten your hair. I’m going to try the mask tonight in fact! I haven’t yet used the bag for anything but it is ideal for makeup or handbags.

Thank you for reading this Treatbox UK unboxing post, I hope you enjoyed it. I cannot quite believe that the next box will be the December / Christmas box and the last one of 2021!

Wishing all who read this a happy and healthy November!

My Son Starting Preschool and Things I have Purchased to Make Life Easier


Well look at that, three years have literally gone past in a blur, and I am sitting here trying to fight back my eyes welling up. My baby boy is no longer my little baby boy, and in fact he has grown up so much this year that it’s scary. Having just emailed in all of the many forms I am now sitting on my sofa writing this blog post as I prepare for him to go off to Pre-School this September.

Backpack – Ollie & Millie’s
Sistema Tubs – Tesco
Kids Shoes – Tesco F&F
Fox Cool Bag – Ollie & Millie’s


Going to school is like a right of passage and it’s a huge milestone in any child’s life. So I wanted to get my son some items to make that transition a bit easier. I had seen this gorgeous backpack on a page I follow on Facebook called Ollie & Millie’s. I had been looking at buying one for months, I looked around for a while, and then I decided to order one from them when I couldn’t find anything that looked as nice
as theirs.


Ollie & Millie’s Facebook Page


And because of Covid19 the School is not able to share some things any longer such as plasters, so every child must have their own in their bag. But that isn’t all, and my sons allergies also pose issues so he has to have everything he needs altogether in one bag. Luckily everything has fitted into the one I have chosen to buy from Ollie & Millie’s. Things such as a reusable water bottle (which we use already in my house but I bought my son a new one just for his school days), a (I chose personalised) backpack, snack pots, wellies for outdoor play and any medical items they require for the time frame they are at school are also included.


My Review of the Backpack

Appearance 5✩
Product Quality 5✩
Personalised Design 5✩
Versatility 5✩

I’m very impressed with the backpack because of its quality in both material and its features such as strong straps and zips. There are several colours to choose from but my son loves blue so I chose blue for him, and because it’s a light sky blue colour the writing for his name really stands out. I was impressed with the time frame between ordering the product and receiving it from Ollie & Millie’s. The backpack also has versatility because I was surprised by just how much I could fit inside it, once I had gently opened it out when it arrived. Overall I rate it exceptionally highly and would recommend it to any parents who are after a good priced backpack with their child’s name on.

The cool bag is also a lovely product and it is of excellent quality with a very cute fox design. Ollie & Millie’s have a wide range of products and also make personalised t-shirts and other clothing as well.


Other items that I have got to make things easier for both my son and myself are some fantastic plastic tubs from Tesco which are from the brand Sistema. The tubs are not only different sizes than what you would usually see in the supermarket, but they also have fun sections built in and have genius clips and lids too. Bonus points that I could get them in blue to match my sons bag as well!

Everything shown in my picture above is now inside the backpack, and with a handy bottle pocket on the side my sons drink is safe and secure too.

Thank you for clicking on this post, I hope you have enjoyed reading it.

Have you got any young children heading to School this term? I do hope they take it all in their stride! I will be doing a follow up post about how things went after the first few weeks too.

August 2021 Treatbox UK Reveal and Review

Well, Hello! Nice to see you again!

It’s time to Reveal and Review the August 2021 Treatbox!

I wanted to give time enough to let everyone receive their box before I revealed all the contents.

Contents of the August box…

3 Treatbox Original Cards featuring a Sea Theme
Blue “Smile” Toiletries Bag
The Soap Story – Sea Minerals Soap Slice
August Calendar Print
Sea Breeze & Fresh Linen Wax Melts
Pure Heavenly Chocolate – Dark with Sea Salt
Blue Onyx Precious Stone in Organza Bag
Treatbox Bingo Card – Summer Self Care

My Honest Opinion

What a fantastic box this month! I loved the Sea theme and how neatly all the items slotted within it. I also enjoyed seeing items that we have NEVER HAD BEFORE 😀 Yay! This makes me SO happy!!! After buying so many years of constant boxes from Treatbox I’m always hopeful to get useful items or unique pieces.

The precious stone and the smile bag are my favourite items this month. The Treatbox UK originals like the bingo card and the trio of summer sea cards are also really nice. You can choose to keep them or pass them on to someone to keep the positivity going! The soap slice made the whole box smell so nice! I am looking forward to taking a bath with that! And the chocolate looks delicious! I am saving that for a night in on my own! I am not a fan of wax melts, but they smell lovely, so I won’t be melting these but using them to make my room smell nice instead!

Thank you for reading this unboxing post, I hope you enjoyed it.
Hopefully I will see you again soon. Have a great month of August!

May 2021 Treatbox Reveal and Review

It’s time to Reveal the May 2021 TreatboxUK box!

I saw the sticker said “Bee Happy” and wondered if that was a clue!

Inside the May box was… “Bee Kind to Yourself” Themed Products ✩

The May 2021 Calendar Print / What’s Inside May Treatbox Information

Treatbox Original Print “Sunshine and Happy Days”

Treatbox Original Bag “You’re So Golden”

Treatbox Packet of Sunflower Seeds “no rain, no flowers”

Yummy Comb – Honeycomb Bar Smothered in Sea Salted Caramel Belgian Milk Chocolate

our tiny bees – Mini Floral Hand Balm 21ml Ylang Ylang and Lemon

by Jessica Alice – English Pear & Freesia – Wax Melt – Hand Poured & Vegan

Treatbox Original Positivity / Self Care/ Wellness Cards – 10 Designs

It’s World Bee Day on the 20th of May!!!

✩ My Opinion of the May Box Contents 

What I really liked this time around were the themed products and how most of them were handbag size. Most were Vegan and Cruelty Free as well. I am looking forward to enjoying the honeycomb chocolate on a day that my son is away (as it contains dairy and he has allergies). And the Wax Melts smell lovely! They are currently making my lounge smell beautiful without even the need to melt them, it smells so strong through the packaging and such a Spring like scent!

The bag is so cool! Cannot believe you’re now doing things like this in house at Treatbox HQ! They look amazing! The hand cream is lovely and smells nice.

Love the Bee theme! The Print and the Cards are all lovely and very well appreciated during this difficult time. It’s nice to get little reminders to look after yourself. As a single mum some days I might not get another adult conversation and I am often busy and tired. Treatbox is a little pick me up which contains even more little bits and bobs to remind me that “I’m Amazing” – so thanks Treatbox!

July 2020 Treatbox Reveal

Hello and Welcome to the Reveal and Review of the July 2020 Treatbox with me, Sabrina.

Happy Treatbox Day! Remember to follow me on my social media for more Treatbox photos of the products in use!

Here are the contents of the July box, in this month’s box there are 5 items plus an A5 print.

Treatbox Original A5 Print “Grow Through What You Go Through”

Bumblebee Cool Bag made with 40% Plastic Recycled Bottles

Bag of Dry Gin Fizz Gummies Fabulous Sweets

Vitamasques Gold Eye Mask with Hyaluronic Acid

Daily Concepts Multi-Functional Soap Sponge Charcoal

Bumblebee Biscuit

Here are some of my images of the contents in the July box.

My Honest Opinion of this Box

I left my expectation of this box at my front door as it popped through my letterbox. I really hoped it would be good because I have been somewhat disappointed by some of the boxes this year. I wanted this box to redeem itself for the month and give me a reason for continuing my subscription…

The items are a nice mixture and I did like how it was themed towards Bee’s and Flowers and Summer. As well as self care as well. The cool bag is of good quality and I love the design of the yellow and bees.


The Gin Fizz Sweets are going to be gifted to my mother who loves Gin! The mask is going to be popped in my drawer with the others until I have some self care time (hardly ever with a toddler in tow!).

The print is nice, simple but a pretty design. The biscuit I have yet to eat because I need to go on to their website and check the allergens.

Finally the Charcoal Soap and Sponge is a really nice item. I have been after something similar myself and so this will be thoroughly tested and I will report back via my social media about what I thought…

My favourite items for their potential are by far the small cool bag and the charcoal sponge. Although I’m sure my mother will be delighted by her sweeties!


So has the box redeemed itself? It has! But I am still unsure about whether or not I will be continuing with the subscription. It’s £12 for me because I was one of the first subscribers many years ago, I certainly don’t believe it’s worth that some months. I think I have two choices, I either continue bringing you these reveals and I gather myself some Christmas presents using the bits and bobs I don’t want every month… or I cancel my Subscription and perhaps get something I will always enjoy? Which is a tough ask! Because almost everything through your door is a gamble these days, I don’t think I have had a box that I have used every single item of for around two years now… so… decisions, decisions!

Would you be sad to see Treatbox Reveals disappear from my blog? Please leave me a comment below if you do enjoy seeing them and tell me why.

Jakago Portfolio Folder and Tablet Bag Product Review

Today I am reviewing an item that I purchased a few months ago now, it has been thoroughly tested and I am so pleased with its quality that I wanted to tell you all about it. Plus, it’s so pretty isn’t it? Review time!

The item was from Amazon UK, and it has the title of Jakago Portable Portfolio Carrying Case. It is designed for people who want to carry their tablet, stationery and notepads together all in one convenient bag.

I bought this particular bag because I had wanted a folder to keep my Microsoft Surface inside. An easy way to transport it around my home and to keep it safely hidden away from my toddler when not in use. What swayed me to buy this one was the pretty design on the cover, the fact that it was the correct size for my uses, the cover is waterproof and it was available for a quick delivery.

This excellent quality folder has many various sized pockets, both inside and out, and the cover is beautifully designed. Not only is it waterproof outside but it is misleading on size too. I measured my Surface and found the measurements to fit. I can get it inside the folder, zipped up, and still have more room for other small items inside. Plus there is the zip compartment on the outside at the back, and a slide in pocket on the front.

There is more than enough room for those who just have a tablet, you can carry a variety of stationery inside plus A4 and A5 notepads. There is a nifty pocket with a zip inside the folder, which is ideal for memory sticks or things of that size. As you can see from my image below, the folder has a variety of slide-in pockets that divide the portfolio up so things do not rub together inside.

Product Name on Amazon: JAKAGO Portable Portfolio Smart Folder A4 Folio Waterproof Document Organiser Passport iPad Carrying Cases Conference Folder with Zip and Handles for Travel Meeting Business Office Holiday (Flower)
Product Details: Ideal for Carrying a variety of Stationery, Tablets and other Technology, with unique features such as a waterproof casing and many pockets inside ideal for organisation.
Size: 13.8 H x 9.8 L x 1.2 W inches , overall size is an A4 Letter, can store an iPad, Pens, Paperback Book, Mobile Phone, Tablets such as Samsung, Kindle etc
Material: This travel portfolio case sleeve use waterproof fabric, portable and durable, which well protects items inside from damage.
Product Price: £18.99 (Correct of June 22nd 2020)
Product Website: LINK

There are 10 different variations of this bag currently available. They include block colours like Purple, Pink, Green, Orange, Navy Blue, and designs like Leaves and Flowers. There would be something to suit everyone. They logo with the bicycle situated on the front of the bag says “Small Size Large Capacity” Multi-functional File Bag.

Overall I would rate this bag as 5/5. For it’s Quality and Design I didn’t mind paying the price, its cost outset the convenience and unique features.

Price 5/5
Quality of Product 5/5
Product Design 5/5
Features 5/5
Ease of Use 5/5

Thank you for reading this product review today. I hope you have enjoyed reading about this excellent file bag.

Have a lovely rest of your day, and thank you for visiting Severn Wishes.

June 2020 Treatbox Reveal

Treatbox Reveal and Review


Hello readers! It’s time for the June 2020 Treatbox Reveal
with me, Sabrina of Severn Wishes Blog.


Happy Treatbox Day! Remember to follow me on my social media for more Treatbox photos, products in use and updates!

Here are the contents of the June box, this month there are 6 items plus an A5 print.


A5 Print “Enjoy the little things, for one day you might look back and realise they were the big things”
Treatbox Notepad “Keep Going”
Compact Mirror “You’re So Attractive”
Treatbox “Everything is going to be Okay” Pin
Mallow & Marsh Double Chocolate Marshmallow Bar
Taylors of Harrogate Tea Bags 1 x Sour Cherry and 1 x Lychee and Lime Green Tea

Here are some more images I took on the reveal of this box…

My Honest Opinion

I really love the compact mirror, it is good quality and ideal to keep close to my bed in case I need a mirror quickly while caring for my son.


I also think the notepad is nice, it’s of good quality with lots of pages, and I like the “Keep Going” slogan too. It is handy for me to pop little messages in with my post to loved ones.

The pin is great! Love the quote and the colours, it’s unique! In fact I liked it so much that I have gifted it to my younger sister who has been going through a tough time, it’s on the way to her in the post as I write this.

I don’t like the fact that I can’t eat the chocolate bar due to its ingredients, it sounds so tasty too! So sadly I will be gifting that to a relative to enjoy!


I haven’t tried the tea yet, and the Print has a great quote on it that I think everyone should take notice of.

Carpe Diem to all aspects of life, that’s what I believe.

August 2019 Treatbox Reveal

Hello readers! It’s time for the August 2019 Treatbox Reveal
with me, Sabrina of Severn Wishes Blog.

Happy Treatbox Day! I am ready to Reveal and Review the August Treatbox. It has a gorgeous Yellow tissue paper and the little sticker reads “When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade”.

When Life Gives You Lemons…

I’m really looking forward to finding out what could be inside this box, the summertime boxes always seem more exciting somehow…

Unboxing…

Here are the contents of the August box, we can see 7 items, an A5 Print and of course the Calendar Print.

August Calendar Print – blue and yellow
A5 Print “The World is your Oyster”
Cotton Bag “Let’s Get Away” in beige and blue

Notepad for “Lists and Things”
Packet of Tissues
Queen Bee Key Ring from Sass & Belle

Anandas Homemade Gourmet Marshmallows – Caramel (V)
2 Hair Bands with Bows – Several Colours Available at Random

The August 2019 Treatbox

Here are some images of the contents of the August box…

My Opinion on the August 2019 Box

What I really liked most about this box were the new items, the hair bands and the Marshmallows. I think we all like to try new things or receive items we have not yet seen before, this made me happy.

The quality of the months items was great, a key ring from Sass & Belle and the bag are great additions, even if they are passed on to others as gifts. Personally I don’t think you can ever have enough notepads or cotton bags! Reuse the bag for whatever you like instead of buying more plastics!


My favourite things in the August box is, well, all of it! There wasn’t an item that I didn’t like, and although the print is a little bit plain this month I’m sure the quote spoke to a lot of you. It’s a bit like, go get um! or, do whatever you like, but saying it in a nicer way of course!

This month there seems to be a theme of getting away for a day, as the bag tells us, and the tissues to go inside it, marshmallows for a tasty treat to share or not, there is a band to put your hair up in the sea breeze and you could even make a list of what to do on your day out! All hypothetical of course! But what I like about Treatbox items, is that there are multiple uses for the contents. It’s totally up to you!

It’s another Vegan treat this month, this makes me very happy!
Bags are so useful and this one is a great size too!

Review of the KeriKit Thor Backpack and Changing Bag

The KeriKit Thor Backpack and Baby Changing Bag

I was so lucky to have won this backpack last Autumn, and I was ecstatic about the quality and the size. I can go out for the day with one bag for all things. I am able to fit a huge amount in this bag, and I will list the items below for those who are interested.

This bag was Oxblood coloured Genuine Leather and features two main compartments accompanied by several pockets that are zip protected. All the space and different areas to store items help with the general organisation of the bag itself.

Oxblood Thor Leather Baby Changing Backpack. RRP £275.

Features of the Thor Baby Changing Backpack

This leather bag has been award winning for Kerikit and is not just great for busy parents but anyone who likes a quality leather bag with tons of space. The one I was lucky to win was Oxblood but they currently supply a Nude or Tan shade of leather Thor bag.

The Thor features two large internal pockets that are separate. The main one has fabric divided into five sections so it’s easy to find what you’re looking for. It has fabric inside it that is waterproof and the outer leather is easy to wipe clean and maintain.

Two long leather straps at the back allow the bag to be carried on ones back, or you could place it in the bottom of a pram, or even use the hooks situated either side to hook on to pram hooks at the handle bar.

The back pocket section of the bag has a keys ring and luggage hook so they won’t get lost in the depths of the backpack.

The fabric itself has a stylish pattern on it and its colour makes it easy to see things when looking inside the bag.

In addition to the main part of the bag there are four zipped pockets, one horizontal compartment either side and one secret pocket at the back part situated vertically. These are all good sizes and add to the bags surprising versatility. Finally you will the fourth inside the main compartment, ideal for small medicines or valuables.

Bag Details
Weight 1.5 kg
Dimensions 30 × 18 × 40 cm
You also receive a baby changing mat and separate washable and waterproof lined food bag.
Me out and about with the backpack in use.

Overall I am so happy that I won this beautiful backpack, and I adore the colour too. It has now been up and down the country with us and it still fits everything inside it that we need, despite my son now being 8 months of age and us needing to take more things with us.

What I usually carry inside the bag on a day out includes a change of outfit for baby, his bottle of cooled boiled water, a bottle of water for myself, sweets and snacks for longer days out, 4 nappies (minimum), a packet of baby wipes, two creams, nappy sacks, 2 bibs, spare socks, a packet of tissues, 2 muslin cloths, spare top for myself and breast pads, one of his toys if not two, and finally a plastic bag for placing dirty items.

I can fit in the bag additionally items you would usually find in a ladies handbag, such as wallet, lip salve, toiletries etc, as sometimes I don’t want to carry more than one item. This does make the bag quite full up but it still closes due to the nature of the drawstring and magnetic stud.

My final review scores for the item are;
Quality 5/5
Design Practicality 5/5
Design Fashion 5/5
Value for Money 5/5

The 3 outer zipped pockets are really handy, especially this one situated at the back of the bag. The leather is beautiful too.
