The Three Additions To Your Wardrobe You Never Realised You Needed, Until Now! Since I Bought Mine I Cannot Do Without Them!

Sabrina’s “How To Get More Space In Your Wardrobe” Post.

Most of us have far too many of something in our homes, be it clothing, shoes, bags or other items that take up space. Usually hidden away in our wardrobes or cupboards… Personally I am a Boots and Dresses kind of woman! And why shouldn’t I be able to enjoy my nice items. After all, I worked hard for them… So if you’re like me and you haven’t had the pleasure of knowing any of these items in your home as yet, then check out the rest of my post below. One of these might just change your life!

Shoe Storage – Stackable Boxes with Mesh Fronts

I first bought these boxes when I was in university, so I could stack up my shoes against a wall. When you live out of one room space is definitely key! They were fabulous! Especially because I could fit a double shoe of anything flat into one box due to my little size 4 feet! Fast forward to the 32 year old me (covers eyes with hands) and I still use these, but now they go in the space underneath my ottoman bed. Out of sight but also neatly packed away. I even bought three different colours so I knew that Purple contained Boots, Teal contained flats and Black contained Shoes…

(Coloured ones are usually only available in store and do change every year). I love being organised! And I love tidy!

These boxes are wonderful! Mesh fronts allow the footwear to breathe, they have Velcro sides on the front panel for easy removal and they can even be stored flat when not in use. So many reasons to love them! Place them under beds, inside cupboards or wardrobes, the possibilities are endless. I have even stacked up to 6 boxes on top of one another with light shoes inside, they are sturdy too.

I bought mine from Ikea, they still do them. Currently you can get Grey or White, a set of 4 costs just £7. What a bargain! They measure 22cm x 34cm x 16cm, so it is worth measuring your footwear before purchasing. I think they are a great space saving alternative, especially because it stops you having shoes stacked up all over your hallway.

I do tend to wipe the bottoms of my shoes and let them dry fully especially if they were wet after use, before putting them away again inside the boxes. If you have a little space somewhere that you could convert to a shoe area these are definitely worth considering.

Wardrobe Storage Options

As someone who has quite a number of lightweight clothing items, I found that my wardrobe was quickly filling up every time I caught up on my washing. I began researching ways in which I could maximise my space.

There were two options I could use, the first were Hanger Space Saving Bars (aka Hanger Heroes or Magic Hangers) and the second were Coat Hanger Connectors. I decided to try both, I begun with the Connectors and then bought the Bars, and it has more than doubled my wardrobe space. You must make sure your wardrobe rail is suitable for additional weight though before buying these items.

Coat Hanger Connectors are wonderful small pieces of strong plastic, you slide the one end (the loop) on to the top of a hanger and the longer section hangs down so you can push a second coat hanger through it. I used them for lightweight t-shirts and cardigans. I have managed to hang 6 items in a vertical row, long term, and none of them have broken as yet.

Depending upon the height or your wardrobe or your freestanding pole, you can figure out what would work for you. They are ideal for lightweight t-shirts and shirts and can save you lots of space. They range in price from around £4 for a bunch of 20 of them.

The final items that I want to review are the wardrobe bars, or hanger heroes as they are also known as. You can purchase these on Amazon and from Must Have Ideas. I have bought from both companies, and they were both of equally strong metal and good quality materials. These range in price but you can get metal ones for around £12 and upwards for 6 or more.

I kept seeing these advertised and I really needed the extra room when I moved house. I went from built in wardrobes to zero wardrobes! Having borrowed a metal freestanding pole and rail from a family friend, until I can go wardrobe hunting! I found that these worked really well to give me much needed space!

Depending upon the weight of your clothes you can fit a minimum of 8 items per hanging bar. I have found I can place 14 lightweight items on one, including using the thinnest and most lightweight plastic hangers that I own too. As you can see in my images I have tried to use thin hangers and ensure I don’t place heavy items on the bars.

Once your bars are filled you gently remove one hook and lowed one side down. When the bars were all flat along the metal rail I had no space remaining for other clothes. When I have released one side of each bar, as you can see below, it has freed up a huge amount of much needed space.

I have no idea how I ever managed without these amazing inventions! I am so much more organised now too! I have long sleeve tops on one bar, short sleeve tops on another, cardigans and thin jumpers on a third one, the list goes on! You get the gist!

Obviously you need to judge how much weight your own wardrobe could take. I would be tempted to reinforce my wardrobe honestly if it were a plastic pole.

In this image below you can see my 6 bars in a row. The only irritating thing is that if you place more than 6 items on it, sometimes the hangers slip down out of the notches into the ones below. I think that’s because of the weight and angle that they are at with the more you put on. My suggestions are to play around with the weight and with what hangers fit on best. The far left are rubber coated metal hangers and the rest of them are thin lightweight plastic ones.

I give every item I have mentioned in this blog post a 5 star rating, they have allowed me to live a more organised life and make my bedroom tidier too. I think it’s important that the space that we sleep in isn’t too cluttered. I am working on trying to get myself some furniture in order to make that a reality. Until I am finished with my renovations though, these pieces will help me to keep at least some areas of it tidy!

Thank you for reading this Review today, I hope you have found this post interesting. If you would like to ask me any questions about the items I will do my best to answer them for you. Until the next time, thank you for reading and see you on my website again soon!

What I Think About The Latest Jewellery Box UK Huggie Earrings and Would They Make Lovely Gifts

Jewellery Box UK have just released a new range of beautiful Huggie type earrings. They range from Sterling Silver, Silver and Rose Gold and also a Yellow Gold too. I am someone who suits Silver or Rose Gold which is why I purchased these three for their colours and metals.

Below is an image from Jewellery Box UK showing their new range.


I love that every time you purchase something from Jewellery Box UK you receive the items in individual sealed bags and then each one is inside a brown envelope too. Not only is it neat and a simple way to post out their products, but I also love that I can recycle the envelopes after I’m done with them too. I have always had a good experience with customer services and the website is easy to navigate too.

I chose the thinner designs of the latest Jewellery Box UK Huggies. I have a graduated lobe set of piercings which are fairly close together, and I also have small ears, so I prefer the more delicate style of certain earrings such as hoops and huggies.

Going up on my graduated lobe piercings I am wearing the following…

Sterling Silver CZ Triple Star Huggie Hoops 17mm Huggie Earrings

Rose Gold Plated Sterling Silver 12mm CZ pave Huggie Hinged Earrings

Sterling Silver Star Charm Huggie Hoop Earrings

I chose these earrings because I love Sterling Silver. I also bought a Rose Gold set (centre) as I thought they would sit well together on my ear and complement each other. I am not a fan of yellow Gold due to my skin tone, but these design of earrings are available in all three types of metal so you can choose the right style for you.

As you can see in this close up image of the earrings on my finger, they are super shiny and sparkle nicely in the light. I definitely prefer the thinner style huggie due to the fact that I have small ears and multiple piercings. But if you’re after a chunkier style those are available too.

The huggie also compliments other earrings such as these CZ studs that I own. I always like to wear different sizes and never wear the same sized earring in every piercing. It’s a good thing that Jewellery Box UK have such a wide choice on offer, you can definitely find something to suit you or a loved one.

In this image I’m wearing the Star Charm Huggie and the Sterling Silver Rainbow Crystal Huggies (I bought those Rainbow ones earlier this year). Both are delicate and pretty and lightweight too. Rainbows have featured so heavily this year, and there are many styles of Rainbow jewellery on the Jewellery Box UK website.

What I like most about purchasing from Jewellery Box UK is the quality of what they have available and the huge range of choice too. They deliver efficiently and I love the personal packaging.

If you want to check out all the Huggie Earrings at the Jewellery Box UK website (or any of their stock as it’s all great and there is something for everyone) then you can click this link HERE.

So would Jewellery Box UK Earrings make great gifts? Yes! I think so! There is so much choice on the site, and if for some reason you can’t choose, then you could even do a Gift Card for someone and let them decide themselves.

Thank you for reading this Review today, I hope you may have gotten some inspiration on beautiful earrings you could gift someone you love this Christmas. I have purchased these items myself and am reviewing them because of how much I love the items.

Book Review of How to Draw Kawaii Animals in Simple Steps by Yishan Li from Search Press. A Great Book for Beginners.


I have been supplied this book for the purpose of a review. I have not paid for this product, it was a competition win in order to keep but review it. Thank you to Search Press Art for giving me this opportunity to review this great book.

My First Attempts


A great book for beginners! It certainly is just that. I was impressed by the simplicity of the book but with excellent results. This book would make an ideal Birthday or Christmas gift for people of all ages, providing they liked drawing or were a fan of animals.

Here are some of my attempts at drawing, my Racoon isn’t half bad!

Product: Book on Drawing
Book Title: How To Draw Kawaii Animals in Simple Steps By Yishan Li
Publisher: Search Press
Pages: 28 Animals across the pages, each drawn with 8 steps

Awesome Pages Included in this Book
Back Cover


I am someone who really and honestly cannot draw! I mean everyone can draw in some capacity but I draw most things badly, so I jumped at the chance to use these simple steps to improve my drawing abilities.

The book is so easy to follow, with 8 simple steps to the general shape of the animals. And then you are free to add your own details. They give you inspiration with one coloured in and completely detailed animal per page, so you can attempt a similar end result.

The steps are easy, you need a pencil, and I would recommend a rubber, so that you can erase any lines that you don’t need when you complete the finer details. Some lines are there to build shape but not needed at the end.

There are all sorts of animals, fish and birds in this book, something for everyone’s tastes.


(Left) My Fox (2nd Attempt) Side by Side with the Book version and original (Right).

I would and have given this Book a 5 Star Review. It has something for everyone, with a variety of animals, easy steps to follow and it also gives people the freedom to add their own details, as well as getting great results.

Thank you reading this review today. You can find this book on Amazon by typing the title into their search bar.

Owl and Brolly Wall Stickers Let Imagination Run Free with their Incredible Quality, Unique Style and Beautiful Watercolour Designs

Owl and Brolly Stickers are Unique, Colourful and Imaginative

Hello Severn Wishes followers. Today I have the pleasure of bringing a special review to you all. Owl and Brolly is a company who specialise in Wall Stickers, mainly for children’s bedrooms and play rooms. I have known Sue at Owl and Brolly for several years now, we bonded through an Endometriosis group and found we had mutual things in common. When I found out she was an incredible artist and saw her beautiful work, I wanted to shout about her talent.


Sue knew that I had just moved house into a rental property, and I couldn’t take the chance of ruining the paintwork in my son’s bedroom. So the plan was to do some tester stickers, an hour, twenty four hours and finally seven days. And luckily for me there was nothing wrong with the paint and I tried the stickers on several walls just to make certain. I can guarantee that it is a good idea to do the Tester Sticker when you may not know the condition of the walls in your home.

Delightful Christmas Bear

This lovely Bear is for my son’s bedroom, he hasn’t given him a name just yet, ha, ha! But the quality of this sticker just amazed me. Not just the printing of the sticker itself but the design. Owl and Brolly stickers are all drawn and designed by hand. What a talented woman behind such a wonderful creative business.

What I love about the Owl and Brolly range is the creativity and the infinite imagination that stems from items like these stickers. Any child would be lucky to have some of them on their walls.

Here are some examples of the beautiful Wall Stickers Owl and Brolly currently offers. I will be providing links to social media and the website itself at the end of this article. Check out these incredible works of art!

I will now give you some background about the company and how it all came about. As a small British Business they are always looking for support from fellow UK citizens who appreciate all the talented people in this country, and especially now during the pandemic, it’s a great idea to think about purchasing locally for Christmas this year. Perhaps my blog post will inspire you to buy from Owl and Brolly.

Sue studied a HND in Natural History Illustration specialising in watercolour, she enjoyed a creative career until Endometriosis forced her to change her way of working. In order to move with the times she made the decision to become more of a digital based artist than making art with traditional paintings. Her drawings are incredibly detailed and she has a unique style.

It was after helping a start-up company with their designing that Sue went on to illustrate her own range of wall stickers for nursery walls and kids rooms. She began combining her own special watercolour techniques and using some digital media to create the sticker designs. It was a decision that brought out her artistic skills and she is doing what she loves every single day. It was at this time that she started her company, and Owl and Brolly was born.

The stickers are all printed on a high quality removable and reusable fabric wall sticker, rather than a single use PVC vinyl. This allows them to be used more than once and are easily removed (gently) and then repositioned. Sue has a passion for wanting to create illustrations that will help to inspire children’s imaginations. Her beautiful watercolour designs are not only highly detailed but they look unique. They are printed to such a high quality that they look good on any wall space and have already made so many children (and their parents) happy with the designs.

The Stickers are thin but excellent quality, printed onto removable and reusable fabric.


Please visit Sue over on Owl and Brolly to see all of the wonderful things that she has to offer. There are so many beautiful stickers on the website I couldn’t possibly show you all of them on here. You’ll have to pop over to the page or website and become even more inspired.

I highly recommend the customer service, the quality of the items and the overall finish of the products available. Sue will also work on special designs if you have something in mind, just send her a message on her social media and see if her commission’s books are currently open. She is working hard every day to accommodate people’s orders despite the pandemic and she is a very talented woman who deserves so much success.

Thank you again to Sue for giving me the opportunity to review her wonderful products, I have thoroughly enjoyed this collaboration.

And thank you for visiting Severn Wishes today, I hope you have enjoyed this product review, thanks for reading.

September 2020 Treatbox Reveal and Review


Welcome one and all to the
September Treatbox Reveal and Review!


My apologies for this post being so late in the month, there was a mix up with my box so I have only just received it! But what a fabulous box of treats it is!

Read on to find out exactly what! With pictures too!


SO WHAT IS INSIDE THE SEPTEMBER BOX?


An awesome and very cute Calendar Print (Yay!)

A beautiful Scarf, blush Pink with patterns of Hearts or Chevrons (Picked at Random) (It’s so soft!)

Daily Concepts Daily Lip Scrubber

Tray Bakes Honeycomb Crunch Bar (Mmm!)

the Little Coffee Bag Co. Black or White Coffee Bag


Treatbox Unique Key Ring with Inspirational Quotes

Paper Bag of Treatbox Special Daily Affirmation Cards



What Do I Love Most In This Box?

I cannot express how happy I was to see the Calendar Print! I love it too being a Cat related image! It has gone straight on to my Fridge. I do hope this will be a regular occurrence again! If so, then fab!

I adore the scarf it is both pretty and soft, and the pattern is versatile enough to go with anything in my wardrobe.

The Lip Scrubber is really useful and a very handy product considering we are now entering into Autumn and Winter. A good idea to have in your bathroom in case of dry lips!


I haven’t eaten the Treat Bar yet, but it sounds delicious! And I have gifted the Coffee Bag to my Mother who adores her Coffee, I am not fond of it in all honesty. I’m sure she will enjoy it!

The Affirmation Cards are wonderful! Just when you need a pick me up they are right there. Wonderful quaint designs and they say all the right things. I have popped two of them on my fridge along with my calendar, because as someone who is currently working through a low self esteem, it’s really nice to have reminders such as, “I am enough” and “I am strong” etc.

I love the pink theme this month, to be honest the whole box is well thought out. I am also ecstatic because there isn’t a face or eye mask in sight! Hurrah! *Dances* I really hope this is a good move and a turning point, because if it is then I am happy to continue my subscription. I want (as I’m sure many of you do) a Treat to eat or drink, something to cherish or wear, something to do and enjoy and something to inspire. The calendar print I would love to see return, as I would also love to see A5 prints perhaps. I have a few of the A4 ones from the last 3 years of boxes framed around my home and I still adore them.

I am very much looking forward to my October box now, I hope it is full of inspiring things and perhaps an Autumnal theme…

If you want to read any of my reviews on previous boxes then please click the category Treatbox.


Thank you for visiting Severn Wishes today, I hope you have enjoyed the Review of this September Treatbox. I hope to see you here again soon for another one of my Reviews.

In these uncertain times it’s nice to have a box of joy arrive on my doorstep, I very much love how Treatbox does that.

Argos Tester Review of the Haden Highclere 4 Slice Toaster


I am very fortunate to be an Argos Tester, this means that I often get items sent to me for the purpose of a review. This month I was offered an item that I jumped at a chance to own. It is a beautiful 4 Slice Toaster made by the UK based brand Haden.

#ArgosTester #ArgosTesters #ArgosTestersCommunity

This post has been written by myself about a product that I have been supplied for free, in order to test and then review it. This is my experience with said product and my honest review about the product that is listed below. I have already submitted my product review to the Argos Website when this post has been published.


The Haden Highclere Toaster is a great example of British Quality. It has been manufactured to a high standard with clean lines and a beautiful steel look to compliment the metal elements of a toaster. The addition of the Cream colour casing makes it a perfect appliance to slot into any kitchen. It is also available in a pale cyan blue colour but from Haden direct at the moment.

This fantastic 4 slice toaster has wider slots than most other brands meaning it’s perfect if you love a tasty fat crumpet or a tasty thick wedge of toast. Your products won’t get stuck when popping up out of this well designed appliance. I love how it has smooth rounded edges; everything I have had previously is very square. I think it’s a rather feminine looking Toaster, and I really like that about it. The whole piece is beautiful with the steel having reflection of the area surrounding the toaster. I have the cream version and it compliments it very well.

I am most impressed by the look of the piece and the width of the toasting slots. Now I can enjoy tasty crumpets without waiting for them to get stuck! And it goes well in my kitchen because of its very stylish design. Cream goes with everything doesn’t it? The toaster doesn’t take up loads of room on your counter top either, which is great news, so you get the wide toasting slots and a compact design. What more could you want? I know I am extremely satisfied with this product and I will always enjoy using it.

Product Name: Haden 197252 Highclere Toaster 4 Slice – Cream
Product Information: 4 Slice Toaster, Available in Cream or Blue, Haden was Established in England in 1958. This Toaster has two removable Crumb Trays, Reheat and Defrost Settings, Cancel and 6 Browning Settings.
Product Price: £44.99 (Correct as of 30th August 2020)
Product Link: Argos Website


Argos Tester Submission

The Haden Toaster is beautiful, I love that its rounded design has some great features. With wider toasting slots it means my crumpets never get stuck now! I like the easy functionality of it with Reheat & Defrost buttons. Overall it’s a Toaster that will go beautifully in any kitchen with its stylish metallic & cream finish. I found that toast was crisp & golden in no time. I’m really happy with the excellent quality of this Haden appliance and I hope it lasts me a very long time.

My Favourite Aspects of the Product

Wide Toasting Slots
Superb Manufacturing Quality
Sleek and Smooth Design with Curved Sides

✩✩✩

If you have any questions about this product and you would like to ask me about it then please do! Either leave me a comment or ask me on one of my social media posts, and I would be happy to help you out.

Have a great bank holiday weekend!
And thanks for visiting my blog Severn Wishes today.

August 2020 Treatbox Reveal

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

Inside the box you have a Large A4 Print and there are 6 items inside.

A4 Print – Yellow and Floral “Life is Tough But so are You”
The Natural Choice – Cosmetics Bag “You Got This”
Bubble T – Bath and Shower Gel “Vanilla Chai Tea” Scent
Vitamasques K-Beauty Citrine Sheet Mask with Therapy aspects
Willies Cacao – Venezuelan El Blanco – Raspberries and Cream – White Chocolate Treats 50g
Twinings Cold Infuse Sugar Free Tea for Water Bottles 1 x Watermelon, Strawberry and Mint and 1 x Passionfruit, Mango and Blood Orange Flavour.


My Thoughts on this Box

I had never tired the Cold Infused Twinings before so it was a nice treat to try something new. I was a little disappointed with another face mask, though I understand some people would use one a week at least, so I am going to try and do the same from now on and do more self care. I have a small box full of all the ones I have had from subscriptions boxes such as this one, they are mostly from Treatbox to be fair. Another cosmetics bag too? That is not good as we have received several small bags this last 12 boxes.

Don’t get me wrong, I really liked some of the items inside this month’s box, they were different (yay) and the print was also beautiful and has a nice summer inspired design. A few items were ideal in regarding how I was feeling emotionally this month. Even the sticker at the start reading “Keep Going” is a reminder of not to give up. I have a difficult time ahead of me and receiving this box every month would usually be a pick me up that was well needed. Lately I haven’t felt the same about the boxes, although this August box has given me a bit more positivity towards them, I honestly think that September might be my final box. I have to make that decision in the coming weeks based on the upcoming contents.

“Keep Going”

Argos Tester Review of the Marshall Emberton Portable Wireless Speaker

I am very fortunate to be an Argos Tester, this means that I often get items sent to me for the purpose of a review. This month I was offered an item that I jumped at a chance to own. It is a Wireless Portable Speaker developed by the company Marshall.

#ArgosTester #ArgosTesters #ArgosTestersCommunity


This post has been written by myself about a product that I have been supplied for free, in order to test and then review it. This is my experience with said product and my honest review about the product that is listed below. I have already submitted my product review to the Argos Website when this post has been published.

My thoughts on the Marshall Emberton – Portable Loudspeaker

I am using the Marshall Emberton with my iPhone to make my music portable around my home. So far I am very impressed with the clarity of sound, the ease of use and the quickness of setting up its Bluetooth capabilities.

Playing a wide range of different music on the portable loudspeaker including pop music, rock music, soundtracks and themes as well as vocal pieces, I have to say I’m very happy with how the Marshall Emberton sounds. The Emberton boasts two amazing speakers, one either side of it, so no matter where you are in a room you can clearly hear the music.

The Loudspeaker weighs 0.7kg and sits sturdily on a flat surface whenever you wish to play your music. With over 20 hours of battery life this portable speaker also has a multi-functional control button in the centre which feels very nice to push. The overall look and feel of this Marshall Emberton speaker is one of quality and sophistication.

The design is in black with its red and white details along with the copper button in the centre. The word Marshall is written across the front with a metallic mesh speaker look. The leather exterior is water resistant and when that rich sound comes out from this loudspeaker you can hear every note and beat clearly.

I’m very impressed with this portable device, I feel confident in its design and the quality. Because it’s so easy to charge up using a USB attachment, you can then take it anywhere you like.

After using the Marshall Emberton now for over two weeks, I couldn’t help but think that Marshall could have developed this portable speaker to appeal to gamers, like myself. If they had also allowed for an auxiliary cable attachment, then the speaker could have been attached to a television. This would have given an incredible dimension to gaming using the rich sound that the speaker can produce. Maybe this is something they could consider for a future model.

Overall I have been delighted with this speaker. It’s good that it’s waterproof casing is so durable, because I have a toddler, and also that it is wipe clean because it can become quite static and attracts dust and hairs. But that is easily wiped off so it’s not a problem for me. I very much look forward to taking it outside of my home when we go for walks and things like that, the battery has been amazing, I have only had to charge it once so far and it’s still going! The little red lights (as seen below) go down as the battery does so it is easy to see what charge you’ve got remaining.

Once again thank you for Argos Testers and Marshall for this wonderful opportunity. I really love the item.

Details on the Product as Described on the Argos Website

Product Name: Marshall Emberton Portable Wireless Speaker – Black

Product Details: 2 Internal Speakers, Bluetooth Compatible, USB Charging Cable included, 20+ Hours of Battery Life, Tough Resilient Design featuring a waterproof covering.

Product Description: Emberton is a compact portable speaker with the loud and vibrant sound only Marshall can deliver. With 20+ hours of playtime, you can enjoy the superior sound of Marshall for hours on end. This lightweight speaker is tough and resilient, boasting an extremely durable and easy to use design that make it a must for any occasion. A solid metal grille and the iconic Marshall script adorn the front of the speaker, echoing the legacy of rock ‘n’ roll that you know and love.

Superior Signature Sound. By separating out the spatial content of stereo recordings, Emberton produces a sound much larger than its size and outperforms most speakers in its class. Its custom-tuned audio components enhance the multi-directional sound by providing brilliantly powerful and clear sound throughout the entire frequency range.

Roadworthy Design Rated IPX7. Emberton is tough and resilient. With its silicone exterior and solid metal grille, it boasts an extremely durable and easy to use design. Its IPX7 water-resistant rating means you can submerge Emberton in 1m of water for a period of up to 30 minutes.

Emberton is simple and easy to use. Control it with the multi-directional control knob. You can play, pause, skip tracks and adjust the volume of your speaker, as well as turn it on or off.

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.

Are you thinking of ordering a TreatBox for yourself or for a gift for someone?

Then you can find Treatbox subscriptions and also build your own box at their

Argos Tester Review of the George Foreman Fit Grill. A Great Grill Ideal For A Small Kitchen.

I am very fortunate to be an Argos Tester, this means that I often get items sent to me for the purpose of a review. This month I was offered an item that I jumped at a chance to own. It is a very useful kitchen appliance and a new version of the well known brand that most people have heard of, George Foreman.

(Please be aware that when I submitted my Review of this product this brand new type of Grill was not yet available, some Argos stores were still selling the old version. This one shown in my images is the brand new type of Small “Fit” Grill and will be widely available very soon).

My Review was done during the first week of July 2020.

My Product Review

My latest review is a kitchen appliance one. I was excited to try the brand new George Foreman Fit Grill. With only a small kitchen I chose the small version of the grill, because I want to be able to use it regularly even after my Review is complete. It doesn’t take up much room at all and this new version is slimmer than the previous version, easier to store away in a cupboard between uses.

How to Use and Maintain this Grill?

This Grill is firmly attached to all its main parts except for the washable Drip Tray. Everything else needs to be kept away from water and other heat sources. Your Grill does not have detachable plates and therefore needs to be wiped clean after every use. You can adjust the grill using the feet situated beneath it, do this before you start cooking. This is so that fat and juices from your food run down and into the drip tray, which you slide underneath the front end of the Grill. I used a damp cloth to clean mine.

My Experience using the Grill

It isn’t often that I would grill in the way you would do on a BBQ for example, I would usually do burgers and sausages in my oven. But when I opened the manual of this George Foreman I was surprised to find out just how many items you can safely cook on this awesome little grill.

From your usual meats and meat free alternatives like Chicken Breasts, various types of Burgers, various types of Sausages, Steaks, Bacon Rashers and Pork Chops! The George Foreman Fit Grill also allows you to cook things like halved Peppers, Whole Flat Mushrooms and Sandwiches. Other items you can cook include Fish, Asparagus, Haloumi and Lamb Chops. Almost anything goes so long as you follow the cooking guidelines for your food.

I was eager to try the cooking of these products out for myself and so I began with meats and went on from there. Of course because the Grill was new I needed to gently and carefully wipe the plates inside it with warm water and dry with a nonabrasive cloth afterwards. Once clean I plugged it in and let it heat up. It is a very simple appliance to use.

I was impressed with how quick the grill heated up to the optimum temperature. The thermostat light is Green and is situated on the top and lid of the grill informs you that it is ready to use when the light goes out. They recommend always wearing an oven glove or mitten around your hand which you use to open up the grill, and using tongs in order to place your food down on the plates. This is because the whole appliance gets very hot and it is better to be cautious. You should also use tongs and nothing that is metallic so you don’t scratch and damage the grill plates.

There are handy cooking times and food safety practices inside the instruction manual which was great to know, and also a few recipes to get your started. The guide is just that, a guide, and you should always look at the packaging your food comes in and compare it with the George Foreman manual times.

I can see me using this Grill regularly; I have so far cooked Beef Burgers, Pork Chops, Bacon Rashers, Onions and Peppers on it. I have to say that all of which cooked well, some quicker than if I had used my oven, and they tasted good too. You do need to be in attendance with a grill like this, you cannot leave the room. What I did was prepare other aspects of my meal while keeping an eye on the meat. Because they don’t take very long, you also might need to flip them over half way into the cooking, plus don’t forget the drip tray! Just in case it was getting a bit full up of fat.

Overall I’m very happy that I chose to Review this George Foreman Fit Grill. It is slim and compact which is ideal for single people or those with a small kitchen. The plates are fast reacting and it heats up in no time ready for use. It is also easy to clean and maintain so long as you deal with it soon after cooking your food. I managed to fit two burgers and two chops side by side, so there is more than enough room on the plates to cook food for two people if you wished to.

My Argos Tester Review Piece for the Website

This grill is excellent for those who want a healthier way to cook food fast. It is a slim & compact appliance that heats up in no time. It has more than enough space on its plates to cook two burgers or small steaks at a time. Easy to clean & maintain & with adjustable features like its hinge & the angle of cooking. It is versatile with what you can grill & for most things is faster than using a preheated oven. I look forward to experimenting & grilling a variety of foods in the future.
