September 2017 Treatbox Reveal

Hello and Welcome to the September 2017 Treatbox Reveal with me,
Sabrina of Severn Wishes.

Happy Treat Box Day Everyone!

It’s that time again, a new month already, where are these weeks going? I think I say this every time, but August has gone particularly fast for me compared to the other months so far. Before we know it, it will be a certain time of year beginning with ‘C’!

It’s September 2nd today as I am photographing this wonderful Treatbox for you all to see, and I hope to upload this post on the 3rd…

This month the box theme is… Unicorns!!!

The tissue paper is a gorgeous shade of light blue. And the smell! Oh the whole box smells divine! A mix of sweet fruit and coconut I think…

“You’re Pretty Magical” the little Unicorn says…

As I open up the calendar print on top and begin to read about the contents of this box I realise there are several of the items that I will enjoy photographing and also enjoy using! Though not a crazy unicorn fan I do like them, I loved riding horses as a child. Does anyone remember the film “The Last Unicorn?” it was a great movie but also incredibly sad!

So without further ado! Here is my photo Reveal of the contents of the September 2017 Treatbox.

Here is the full list of items available for this month. Remember there are sometimes variations in colours and quotes usually! This month we have received 8 things but some of them we have more than one. So we really have around 12 items.

Calendar Print for September
White Chocolate Disks x 4 or 5
Blank Blue Notebooks with Unicorns and Dreams and Wishes x 2
Unicorn Horn Large Print
“Do What You Love Every Day” Plaque
Hand Made in Bali Dream Catcher
Unicorn Pin
Bath Bomb


Here is a selection of my photographs of this month’s box, I hope you enjoy seeing the items up close and if you have any questions about anything please leave me a comment.

My Favourites

My favourite items from this month’s box are the pin, because it is of great quality. I also love the Dream Catcher, it is so well made. The notebooks are lovely and unique looking, useful as usual too, thanks to Zoe!

I like that I have gotten the “Do What You Love Every Day” Plaque, because a few treat boxes ago I received the Coaster version of this quote! Check out this photo below showing both the old and new items together. Isn’t that cool?!

My Overall Opinion

There are some really nice items in this box including ones that are homemade and or unique. I like that we are supporting an ethically sourced item this month and supporting a community in Bali who make them. The sales of Treatbox go to helping make sure these people earn money for their work as we know the products are handmade but source and sold ethically.

I like that it is an unusually filled box this month, with loads of people being into the fantasy trend and unicorns seem very in at the moment too. I’m not unicorn crazy but I’m also not against it, so it’s nice to receive items that I will use without being embarrassed by them being too childish for example.

Using BooHoo Shorts and Iron On Patches to Create my own Unique looking Embroidery Style

Using BooHoo Shorts and Iron On Patches to Create my own Unique looking Embroidery Style Summer Shorts

In the blog post today I am going to be explaining how I managed to make these awesome, unique, and I have to say pretty cool looking embroidery style shorts.

(The Sunflower, Palm Tree and Eye were already sown on).

The original shorts are from BooHoo, I will pop a link to them at the end of the post…

(All the Patches I have had in my Treat Boxes and Artemis and Xena Box!)

The Iron On Patches have all been from past Treat Boxes, the first one I received is from a whole year ago! And it has been sat in a drawer waiting to be used.

I saw the shorts ages ago when I placed an order, to replace an old black pair. And then I had an idea! Seeing as they already had a couple of patches sown on to them, why not add to them! I decided exactly what I was going to do… and this is the result!

If you ever did this as a child, then you had a great childhood! Picking an iron patch in the local shop, taking it home and choosing an item of your clothing for it to go on to. Usually a denim jacket in the 1990’s with patches covering the back! But I wanted to spruce up these already great shorts! I hope you like what I did!

Here are the Treatbox Iron On Instructions and a closer look at the beautiful Rainbow patch that we had last year in our August 2016 box.

Here is a closer look at the Flamingo and Pineapple which were in the July 2017 box.

Recommending to use a handkerchief or an old pillow case to place over the patch while you are ironing is not only a tip but a definite necessity.

This lovely Cup Cake Iron On Patch came out of the Artemis and Xena Box I had earlier on this year in March.

Getting down to the ‘How To Do This’ Part of the blog post now, and basically just be creative! Make sure that you get patches that are good quality, and make sure you choose both areas of the fabric that are easy to iron on to, and choose a fabric that can be ironed on a high heat without it getting damaged!

Otherwise just follow the instructions carefully and make sure you do this with an adult if you’re of a young age.

My final tip is to play around before ironing anything on, you might change your mind. Imagine wearing the item and where the patches will be when you do. Once you’ve made a final decision why not ask someone in your family for their opinion, it couldn’t hurt. And remember this is a creative and fun activity you can do as a family if you all wanted to participate.

Review of BooHoo’s Polly Palm Embroidered Denim Shorts

Comfort 4/5
Value for Money 3/5
Appearance 4/5

Now I’m going to show you a photo of me wearing my finished shorts! I’m really pleased with the way that they turned out.


Here is a link to the boohoo shorts BOOHOO, and don’t forget to check out my category for my Treat Box REVEALS, the Treat Box shop link is also here if anyone wants it SHOP.

If anyone has any questions please feel free to leave me comments, I’m happy to answer them.

August 2017 Treatbox Reveal


Hello and Welcome to the August 2017 Treatbox Reveal with me, Sabrina.

Happy Treat Box Day and a very Happy August to you all too! August is a happy month for me, I got married in August and it’s also my mothers birthday, so plenty to look forward to after Treatbox day!

The August Treatbox is a Theme of Tea and Cake, with Peach coloured wrapping paper this month and a sticker that says ‘it’s the little things’. We have a delightful Calendar Print which is covered in Biscuits, with a Pot of Tea at the bottom and out of the steam it reads ‘take a break’.

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t enjoy the very British past time of taking a break with a biscuit in hand! Although we may all love different kinds of them, we all take our breaks the same!

I’m excited to see what we have inside the box, as I eagerly open the Calendar print pages to find out!


If you would prefer to watch my Treatbox Reveal Video for this month then you can of course find it here on my channel SevernSabrina

Here is the full list of items available this month, and remember there are always slightly different variations in the types and the colours, everyone may get a different combination inside their box…

There are 9 main items in this Treatbox but of course we have been given 4 magnets, plus 2 tea’s so that means we actually have 13 items to enjoy this month…

Calendar Print for August 2017 – Take A Break – Tea and Biscuits
Recipe Card – Carrot Cake
Vanilla Shortbread Cookie – Tea Cup Shape (Pink)

2 Bags of Clipper Tea – Big and Bright Blend
4 Animal Magnets – 4 Colours – Cat, Rabbit, Bird and Elephant
Weekly Planner – Coffee and Tea and Refreshments Design

Print – ‘You Can’t Start An Adventure Without A Cup Of Tea First’
Biscuit Shape and Designed Coaster

100% Cotton Tea Towel (70cm x 50cm) Turquoise and White ‘Everything Stops For Tea and Cake’

My Treatbox Photographs

Here is a selection of my photographs showcasing the contents of this month’s box, I hope you enjoy seeing the items up close and if you have any questions about any of them then please leave me a comment.

My Favourites

My favourite items from this month’s box are the Magnets, The Planner and The Tea Towel. I thought the theme ran well throughout the items, so they were all good as an ensemble, however these more unusual items have won me over this month. The quality of the pieces in this box is excellent.

My Overall Opinion

This August box is a very good box, in fact I would go so far as to say that it is one of the best so far this year! I thought the theme was very well thought out, and I’m also very glad that we have some brand new items this time around. I’m really happy that Zoe has branched out into other types of items. In my time of receiving Treat Boxes I haven’t been given a Tea Towel, so this was one item I was very happy about. Another was the Recipe Card, a great idea and something that we can continue to use in times to come. Finally the Magnets were a wonderful addition, I hope that the next Treatbox is as well thought out as this one.

July 2017 Treatbox Reveal


Hello and Welcome to the July 2017 Treatbox Reveal with me, Sabrina.

Happy Treat Box Day and a Happy July to you all!

This month we open our treatbox to bright pink paper, a strong smell of an island cocktail and what appears to be little watermelons to eat!

The theme surrounds Flamingo’s and Summer Fun. Pina Colada scents and Pineapples from Tropical Islands. Treatbox has on trend items offered up this time, decorative little extra’s and as usual some beautiful prints to display and keep in our homes.

July should be a time of sunshine and fun, some of us manage to go on holiday, others hold family BBQ’s in our back garden. Either way this Treatbox will put you in the mood for anything you enjoy!

Here is a photograph of all the items you’ll find in the July Treatbox.

Here is the full list of items available this month, and remember there are always slight variations in the types and the colours, everyone gets a slightly different combination inside their box… There are 9 main items in this Treatbox plus some decorative extras too…

Calendar Print for July 2017 – Watermelons – Stay Cool
Sweets – Watermelon Shapes

20 Paper Straws – Summer Themed
See Through Case ‘A few of my Favourite Things’
A4 Print – Cacti

Mini Print – Flamingo ‘Utterly Fabulous’
Pineapple – Enamel Pin ‘You’re the Pineapple of my Eye’
Iron On Flamingo and Pineapple Patches
Simple Candle Co – Pina Colada Scented Wax Brittle Melts
Decorative Summer Extras!


I’m also honoured to receive an extra gift this month, from Zoe at Treatbox for my continued support for her boxes. She sent me a second enamel pin, and I think this one is fabulous! So thank you so much sweet!

My Treatbox Photographs

Here is a selection of my photographs showcasing the contents of this month’s box, I hope you enjoy seeing the items up close and if you have any questions about any of them then please leave me a comment.

My Favourites

My favourite items from this month’s box are the iron on prints, because these are so on trend at the moment, unique denim pieces are definitely the way to go, so if you have what you need to customise them do it. I also love the see through case, useful for makeup and various bits and pieces but unusual design too! Finally I like the straws, a neat idea, ideal to use for a BBQ or party or for other decorative purposes. They are well made and will keep on the card they’ve been supplied on until they are ready to be used, very useful!

My Overall Opinion

The July box is a good box, I wasn’t wowed by it, but there are some thoughtful and useful items inside it. Some are unique and well made, so I appreciate the quality that is supplied this month. I cannot use the wax melts in my home so they will go into my box with my others and make the wardrobe smell nice instead.

June 2017 Treatbox Reveal

Hello and Welcome to the June 2017 Treatbox Reveal with Sabrina of Severn Wishes.

Happy Treat Box Day Everyone!

This month we see a pale sea green tissue paper as we open a box which shouts ‘Beach’ and ‘Mermaid’ themes at us with the sticker quoting ‘You are Mer-Mazing’. The Calendar print has June of course with lovely colourful shells behind it. And with these bits I’m eager to see what else is inside my actual treatbox.

As I open the print and read about the contents of this box, I am impressed with the dedication to the theme and attention to detail, and if you join me to see the items, you will understand what I mean…

Here are all of the items in the June Treatbox.

Here is the full list of items available this month, and remember there are always slight variations in the types and the colours, everyone gets a slightly different combination inside their box… There are 8 main items in this Treatbox…

Calendar Print for June 2017 – Sea Shells – Life is better in Flipflops
Stick of Rock personalised for Treatbox – Strawberry Flavour
Hanging Decoration – Green Boat – ‘Life’s A Beach’
Hanging Decoration – ‘By The Beautiful Sea’ Sass & Belle
‘MerBoss’ Notepad designed exclusively for Treatbox
Mermaid Charm for the Wish Upon A String Bracelet
Print – Mermaid Kisses and Starfish Wishes – designed for Treatbox
Beach Bag – XL – ‘Take Me To The Beach’ Environmentally Friendly


Here is a selection of my photographs of this months box, I hope you enjoy seeing the items up close and if you have any questions leave me a comment 😉

If you love the beach, mermaids, or the sea side then this is a box for you.

My Favourites

My favourite items from this months box are the bag and the sea quoted hanging decoration. I love that the bag is enviro friendly and such a decent size. Not only is it water resistant and wipe clean, but its got a velcro strip in the middle which means nothing will fall out. The decorative hanging sea side board is well made and has beautiful details in its pattern. It is bold and great for a bathroom if you have a nautical theme going on.

My Overall Opinion

There are some nice items in this box, and overall the theme is very good, beach is a bit of fun and most of us have great memories of times spent there. Little things like these pieces can help us to rekindle our love for the seaside.

I wasn’t sure why we received two hanging decorations in the same box, I was surprised about that. They are both lovely items but I’m not sure if two decorations is a little much for one box. I would have loved to have seen something crafty like, make your own mini deck chair or something like that, something make-able…

May 2017 Treatbox Reveal


Hello and Welcome to the May 2017 Treatbox Reveal.

Happy May Day to you all! Most of us have received our boxes early due to the United Kingdom having a Bank Holiday today, so I’m very happy to be bringing you this post on the first day of the new month.

As always if you would prefer to watch my unboxing video over on my channel then I will include a link to it after my reveal.

This month was a pretty lilac tissue paper inside with a sticker that read ‘made just for you’. The Calendar print has May with beautiful feathers all around it, I see a theme appearing here. On the back is the usual description of the types of items we can find inside. I don’t tend to dwell on this too much, although an interesting read afterwards, I’m eager to see what is inside my actual box.

For the May Treatbox theme we have feathers and relaxation. Positive energy and inspiration are at the forefronts of the box with postcards and bath salts. A beautiful scarf (which I am very thankful of because it is still cold here at the moment) and a quote plaque. Stickers for being creative and a gorgeous print showcasing the talent of a UK illustrator. This is the May Treatbox.

Here is the full list of items available, and remember there are always variations in the types and the colours, so that everyone gets a slightly different combination inside their box… There are 8 main items in this Treatbox, however if you’re counting the Postcards individually we actually received 18 items this time…

Calendar Print for May with Feathers details
‘Home’ Black and White Print by Simona Matuozzo
Gold Plated Moon and Stars Necklace
10 Mini Postcards with Quotes and Inspiring Sayings
Scarf – Grey Feathers
Stickers – Set of 24
Coopers Apothecary – Vanilla Rose 100% Natural Bath Salts
Home Accessory – Glass Hanging Plaque – Black Border ‘Love the Life you Live, Live the Life you Love.’

Here are more detailed images of all of the items contained within my box this month.

This beautifully detailed print is designed and drawn by Simona Matuozzo an illustrator based in Birmingham. She creates bespoke both hand drawn with ink and also digital illustrations. Her work is often highly detailed, and as with the print we have in our boxes this month, you can see from my macro photograph just how intricate the drawings are.

Here are the details of the Feathers on the Scarf.

Made by Coopers, these bath salts are 100% natural, made with Organic ingredients and no artificial fragrances, with 100 grams of salts to help relax you.


My Favourites

My favourite items from this months box have to be the beautiful feather scarf, the home print and the stickers. I love scarves and as for the craft items, love them!
I don’t currently have somewhere I can hang the plaque but I will be holding on to it for when I can use it, I think the quote is lovely and rather true to life.

This box has been well thought out and I’m very glad that it was filled with positivity and of some items from companies that we haven’t yet seen before. I think it’s very important to support United Kingdom businesses and I love the Treatbox allows us to do that. It will be nice for me to try something made by a company I haven’t tried before, and I love that we have something to wear and keep too. Watch out for my future tweets and Instagram pictures to feature these items.

April 2017 Treatbox Reveal

It’s time to Reveal the contents of the April 2017 Treatbox.

This month is the start of Spring and I associate a lot with this time of year. Blossom trees are opening and birds and singing as they raise their young. Lambs are running about in the fields and what seems like a billion chocolate eggs line the shelves in supermarkets.

Arriving in the new plastic packaging once again I could see star sequins escaping from my box as I began to do my video reveal and unboxing. (See Video Here).

I was met with the usual pretty tissue paper, this time a delightful midnight blue shade. Stars were everywhere and the April Print calendar was sat upon the paper with a sticker that read ‘All it takes is faith, trust and a little Pixie Dust‘. I recall in my memory that this was a Disney quote from Peter Pan.

Inside the box I found a variety of items and most of which celebrated a ‘Fairy’ related theme. Now I saw what the Peter Pan sticker meant, Fairy this and Fairy that! The cookie biscuit inside also quotes Peter Pan too! There was also an overall theme of blue in the box as well.

What stood out most for me was the sign and the pin. The cookie looks delicious and I will enjoy that for elevenses over the weekend.

The admission ticket (view my reveal video) that was supplied with the Scent Circus wax melt, I believe is a ticket you can use towards purchasing a box of melts from them. Check out their website for more products (link at the end).

Here is the full list of 9 items available, and remember there are always variations in the type and the colours, so that everyone gets a slightly different combination inside their box…

Calendar Print for April with Rose detail
‘Live Like There’s No Midnight’  Blue Font Print

‘You’re the Fairest of them All’ Compact Mirror
Fairy Shaped Wax Melt by Scent Circus ‘Pixie Dust’ Smell

Rainbow Pin with Quote ‘If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It’
Blank Pages Book – Cover reads ‘Once Upon A Time’ and the back reads ‘The End’ In Quotes
Wooden ‘Fairy Garden’ Sign in Teal
Trinket Dish – Blue – Quote ‘I Love You Fairy Much!’
Cookie Biscuit (Vanilla) which has the Disney Peter Pan Quote ‘Second Star on the Right, & Straight on till Morning’

Here are more detailed images of all the items contained within my box.

My favourite items in this April Treatbox are the Pin and the Book. Both of these items are unusual and both are my kind of things. They are pieces I could see myself wearing and using.

The Fairy Sign is sweet too and I love the colour. It will no doubt be used one day, perhaps if I can make a nice pot in the garden with a house to pretend there were actually fairies dwelling there. It’s more of a piece for creative and imaginative customers, or perhaps those with small children who are full of imagination.

I have to be honest about this box now though, because I was slightly disappointed to see some very similar items inside. By similar I just mean variations on ones in recent previous ones. I already have several compact mirrors from Treatbox, and although this one is just as lovely, I really didn’t need another one. Also the trinket dish, I have already received two in recent Treat boxes, and I have no use for a third. Finally we have yet another wax melt, and sadly with an asthmatic husband and two cats, they are not something that I can use in my home. I have a box of them from previous boxes that just go to making my wardrobe smell nice. I would hope we would have one month where we don’t get a candle or a wax related product and receive something completely different.

A great deal of this box will unfortunately for me, be re-gifted or given away, which I have found to be a real shame. So far in over a year of boxes I have wanted to have kept the majority of things for myself.

The box itself is really well thought out, the running theme of the fairies and the Disney quotes aspects are both wonderful, and any fan of these two elements will no doubt praise its contents. However I cannot help but see the duplication in pieces, just with different colours and quotes on, and I was really hoping for something a little different.

Because it became Spring this month in the UK I would have loved to have seen a Spring scarf, or a false flower that we could put in our hair or in a vase. Don’t get me wrong, this has been a nice box, but for me it just isn’t up to the usual standard of items inside.

I understand that not everyone will agree with me, and that’s fine, because at the end of the day I am here writing my honest and open review on this box. After having some boxes that I have truly adored, this one for me, just didn’t live up to that expectation. It hasn’t put me off from receiving next months box, however I think I will be reevaluating in the summer just how much longer I will be purchasing.

I do love receiving and reviewing these boxes because so much thought is given to them, and I respect how much effort goes into producing them too. They are always well presented and well distributed as well.

But if the contents become very similar I don’t want to be purchasing a box that gives me the same thing every month or two months in rolling duplication’s. I really hope I will be more impressed by the May Treatbox, and you will have to come back to my blog that first week in May to find out my thoughts.

March 2017 Treatbox Reveal

Hello and Happy March to each and every one of you!

The time has come around so quickly and here we are revealing the contents of yet another Treatbox! I have now had 12 treatbox reveals! Isn’t that crazy! I first got the April 2016 box, and I’ve not missed a month since. It’s a year this month since I made my blog live, now that has gone so fast!

I’m not sure how long I will continue with the treatbox reveals, although I love receiving them, I don’t get a lot of feedback. So if you are reading this right now and you enjoy the unboxing either by video or be reading my blog, then perhaps you could leave me a comment today telling me this, because I am not sure how many people are actually interested in this part of my blogging… if you are then make my day and tell me 🙂

So it’s March 2017 already! And it’s my Birthday on the 7th too! *Here have a slice of virtual cake!* The weeks have flown by and Spring is finally on the horizon! (Thank goodness!)

This months box has arrived contained in a plastic wrapper, a wonderful idea to keep rain and dirt off our boxes while in transit and to ensure the contents are a little more secure. A fabulous idea whomever thought of it! An excellent decision and great because it’s recyclable too! (I will mention more about this later in the blog post).

The Treatbox for March promises that ‘Today is Good!’ and that we should ‘Bee Happy’…

A box for all of us busy bees out there who need to take more ‘5’s’ in the week and chill out a bit, this box is apparently one for us! And also one for helping and supporting the bees of our beautiful planet Earth!

Without any further ado! Let’s take a look at the boxes full contents…

Inside this months Treatbox you will find your Calendar Print with a little extra attached! Zoe has included not only her usual hello and what’s inside, but actually the list of companies whose products are inside! And a little information on each one. This is very handy for me because usually I would go off and find them on social media or other websites and read about them. However this is excellent, saving me time and also giving everyone a background into why and how she chooses the treats for our boxes…

Firstly we have the item of an Emery Board and Nail Clippers in a neat little box shape. Very pretty and also very handy, and it comes in 4 colours, I received the blue one, with Queen Bee written on the back.

Our Tiny Bees‘ who create products using 100% natural ingredients, they specialise in making Candles and Skincare ranges that are made with 100% British beeswax and honey. This month we have some of their chocolate shaped Bath Melt bars. Skincare while you soak in the bath and support the farmers and the bees of the United Kingdom.

The Royal Horticultural Society pride themselves on helping insects of the United Kingdom flourish. By planting Wildflower Seeds each year we are contributing pollen and food sources, as well as homes for a variety of insects. The Wildflower Seeds Bag that Treatbox have supplied this month will go on to ensure a healthy and attractive garden patch for Bees and Butterflies to visit this year. Make sure you look up what time to sow your seeds for your area of the country and support your local wildlife for 2017. Insects provide us with so much wonder and so much of our produce would be lost without them, flowers and fruits, so please plant your seeds when you can and do your bit. If you don’t have a garden big enough then you could buy a large pot to plant them in, I do some seed sowing every year.

In 2014 ‘Love From Angie’ was created, from a passion for creativity and a range of crafts including Greeting Cards and Paper Cuts, Angie makes heartfelt art that can be loved and admired. She can be found on Etsy and Social Media, but we have her 2 Bee Greeting Cards and the ‘Sweet Honey Bee’ Print to enjoy in our Treatbox this month.

Our next item is a wonderful bag made from 90% recycled bottles, a good size for use as a lunchbox, a picnic bag for one or even to store things in when you’re in the car on a journey such as toiletries or cans of drinks.
It has a lovely pattern and I am impressed with the durability of the item, having been created almost entirely of old recycled bottles, impressive!
The Pretty Ditsy Print Bag is a good size and can be folded flat when not in use. It has a zip to keep the contents safe as well, very handy.
I am hugely into recycling, and on average I take two bin liner bags of recycling down to my local plant every single week! If you’re struggling with what to recycle check out your local places online, and see what they can take. Set up an extra small bin in the corner of your kitchen with a label on it, ‘Recycling Only’ and encourage your family members to use it. You’ll be surprised how much you can recycle. In a few months, something you may recycle today could become something wonderful like a bag such as this, for someone else to enjoy! Recycling is a great habit to take up, help us save the planet, one bit at a time.

The final item of this months Treatbox is the Honeycomb Bar. Mine is a Salted Caramel flavour, with Belgian Chocolate, it reads to be 43g of deliciousness! Not only are the bars creators friends of the Bees who give them the honey (says so on the label), but they handcraft these items and they are Gluten Free!
All courtesy of Mighty Fine Honeycomb, Mighty Fine Kitchens who started in London with handmade chocolates in a small shop in Camden Market, who now produce bars on a larger scale, while still providing some of the best honeycomb in the United Kingdom, all the while supporting local farmers and their bees.

Here is the full list of 9 items available, and remember there are always variations in type and colours, not everyone gets an identical box…

Calendar Print for March
Emery Board and Nail Clippers
Bath Melt Bar
Wildflower Seeds
‘Bee’ Greeting Cards x 2
Print ‘If I Was A Flower…’
Pretty Ditsy Recycled Bag
Honeycomb Bar

My favourite items in this March Treatbox are the Greeting Cards, The Bag and The Wildflower Seeds… I love what all of these things represent. For me the handmade cards are Creativity, the bag is Recycling, and the Seeds are New Life and its Preservation. I believe in all aspects of what a box of products like these stands for, and I am happy to have bought it and in doing so I have helped the planet just a little bit more.

February 2017 Treatbox Reveal

Welcome to the February Treatbox Reveal and Review with me, Sabrina.

I’m not quite sure where January went, but here we are at the beginning of February opening another lovely Treatbox. With a special calendar entry this month which has to do with love, I was almost sure the contents of this box could have aspects of hearts and flowers…

I was excited to open this box and see what was inside, its contents felt a little heavier than usual for some reason, this intrigued me.

As I opened the cardboard to find a light pink paper, I thought it seemed a rather girly colour for the box and would perhaps be filled with sweet things. The sticker which reads ‘Made Just For You’ is a nice touch, a reminder of our Treats selected just for us to enjoy.

This month our card tells us that we have a theme of ‘loving’ gifts, a box filled with nice things to make this part of 2017 great. The print for February reads ‘Life Is Better In Rose Gold’ on a Marble background. This is so on trend at the moment and is a really nice addition to my wall of Treatbox prints. With not focusing solely on the fact that it’s Valentines Day soon, this Treatbox has a selection of things that remind us how special we all are, in our own unique ways of course…

Before I go into the full list of items, if anyone would prefer to watch my Video Reveal on YouTube instead of reading the blog post, then the link for it is below.

Here is the full list of items you will find in the February treatbox. As always there are slight variations of colours and types of items in different boxes. I love how this months items have a theme of hearts, knowingly for Valentines Day occurring this month, but without throwing the ‘love’ stuff in your face if you aren’t into it.

February Calendar Print
‘Free As A Bird’ Keyring
‘Life is Better in Rose Gold’ Print
Roses Garland in Heart Shape
‘You’re Awesome’ Print (Stick me in your purse…)
‘Oh So Pretty’ Ring Dish (Ta-Dah! XO)
Packet of Love Heart Sweets
‘La Petite Rose’ Scented Wipes (Citrus)
‘Stand Up, Stand Out, Stand Tall, You Are… Beautiful’ Choker

My favourite items in the February box are the very pretty and unusual looking keyring, the rose garland and the handy ring dish.
I will be honest I’m not a sweets person and only have them very rarely, normally when they are purchased for me or given to me. However I will make an exception for these love hearts, it’s been a long time since I had any!
There isn’t anything in the box that I don’t like, but I’m not sure what to do with the choker ribbon. I’m going to leave it on the card I think, as a sentimental quote.
This hasn’t been my favourite Treatbox to date, but there are a couple of items that for me, still make it great.

 Here are some more of my images showing this months items.

February Treatbox 2017

 

January 2017 Treatbox Reveal

Happy New Year Severn Wishes readers!
Hello and Welcome to the unboxing and reveal of the January 2017 Treatbox!

I had eagerly been awaiting this box, and I wanted it to be my first blog post of this year, however it didn’t arrive until January 6th, so I was already behind on my weekly posting! Anyway, hopefully you’ll enjoy this review, even if you’ve seen others photo’s already.

Once again, for those who prefer to watch than to read, I have recorded the initial unboxing and you can head over to my YouTube channel to watch that if you wish https://youtu.be/luHIV9l3w0Y

So I had high expectations for this box, to cure the January blues and to start off the new year in a happy and positive way. I was most definitely impressed when I opened up the box!

Inside the light sky blue tissue paper I found a card which read “You Got This” which is a well used phrase in my family. I love what it represents, it’s positive and inspiring, and the January calendar staring up at me was also a welcomed item.

Underneath the ‘Chapter One’ sticker I could see a wonder of flower print and polka dots…

Here are a selection of images showing the items in more detail.

Here is the full list of items you will find in the January treatbox. Of course there are often variations of colours, so I will note what kinds of items I received, other boxes will have contained slightly different types. I love how many of the items are British made again this month, it makes me feel like I am supporting small companies.

“Don’t Count the Days, Make the Days Count” Quote Card
‘The Very Nature’ Fragrance Sachet (Frangipani Flower, Jasmine, Orange Blossom, Sweet Vanilla and Musk)
“This is your year! 2017” Book / Planner / Scrapbook
January Calendar Card
Bluebird Teabag (Gingerbread Chai)
2017 Diary (in Silver)
Set of 8 Teardrop Metallic Paperclips and Bookmark
“You Got This” Pencil (in White)
Polka Dot Notebook (Lined)
Pot of Nivea Cream (50ml)

My favourite items in this months box are… everything! There isn’t an item that I don’t like! I’m not sure if I will like the flavour of tea that I’ve been given, but other than that I cannot wait to use the books and various 2017 related pieces from this months box. The only thing to do now is to make a start on using them!

In my personal opinion this has been one of the best treat boxes so far, and I’ve had almost a year of them now. I am most looking forward to turning the plank paged book into a scrapbook for the year. I will also love using the diary, I still cannot get around to putting every single thing into my phone, so it’s very handy for me.
