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.
