TKMaxx Homesense Haul for Bedroom and Bathroom

At the end of 2016 I took myself off to my local TKMaxx store because I felt I needed to tidy up some areas of my home. Some much needed storage was needed in the bedroom and the bathroom.

I went in with a clear indication in my mind of what I was after, and they didn’t disappoint. Once inside the door I immediately headed for the storage section, and browsed for only a few seconds before finding exactly what I needed.

With various sizes of plastic and woven tubs and baskets on offer, ranging from £2.99 to £7.99 I chose the ones that were a suitable size for my home.

The Black Woven Tub
My Use; Standing Small Toiletries Inside In The Bathroom To Keep The Area Tidy
Space Inside the Tub is 9cm in depth and 19cm in length
Height 6.3cm
Width 19.8cm
Depth 9.3cm

The Grund Box (Triple Clear Plastic)
My Use; Used for Storing Cotton Pads, Cotton Buds and Hair Accessories (Pins & Clips)
Height 7cm (8.5cm with Handle)
Width 23cm
Depth 9cm
Section A 7.3cm x 8.6cm
Section B 7.1cm x 8.6cm
Section C 7.6cm x 8.6cm

The Debut by Danielle – Two Tiered Organiser
My Use; Inside this I have my Makeup Sponges and my Makeup Brushes Cleanse Tool
Height 13cm (17cm with Handle on Lid)
Width 9cm
Depth 9cm
Each of the Two Sections is W 8cm x D 8cm x H 6cm

My Overall Review Scores Are;
Appearance 4/5
Practicality 5/5
General Use 5/5

Appearance; Granted these are not the prettiest storage boxes in the world but they do the job they were intended for and that is why I needed them. They do look much better once filled up with objects, rather than what they look like in my images, empty.
Practicality; I fitted everything I wanted to inside and more, especially with the ‘Grund’ triple section box. I find I use the contents every day, and it’s so easy to refill as well.
General Use; I am very pleased that I bought these items, I hope that they last me a long while, they are sturdy, so I would hope so. If not I know where I can get more! If I can be so bold as to recommend you looking in TKMaxx if you’re after this sort of item, before you spend a fortune somewhere else 😉

Thank you for reading this review today, I hope that you have enjoyed reading about the treasures I discovered. I am sure if I shop there again for myself I will no doubt do a review on what I find.

Jewellery Box UK – Unboxing, Reveal and Review

I adore sterling silver jewellery, and I wanted something a little different to wear for 2017. So at the end of last year while searching the internet for gift ideas, I saw these gorgeous studs that someone had tweeted about. I had not come across this wonderful company or their website until a friend on Twitter shared their own experience with ordering from them.

So what did I discover? Well Jewellery Box in the United Kingdom is based in South London and they have thousands of items of jewellery to choose from. Their range of unique designs include both sterling silver and 9ct gold available. I was only out to get silver, and searched through the various categories, and couldn’t believe the amount of choice!

Since June 2014 (when launched) the team have offered fast, affordable and fun jewellery shopping. They pride themselves on being efficient and design forward, while keeping the quality high. All of these things inspired me to purchase from them.

Not only that, but I was able to get a necklace free of charge while spending a certain amount with them, a stunning snowflake for Winter, included in my order for free!

Over all I am pleased with the order that I made. Let me now show you photographs of the items, which I took after recording my initial unboxing video. Click the link at the end of the post for my YouTube account to watch the video which shows the items in details.

So I ordered an Arrow Necklace, Aquamarine Pull Through Earrings, Cat Head Stud Earrings, Open Triangle Necklace, and then I received the Snowflake necklace as well, as a complementary gift.

 My final Review for this order as a whole is;
Quality 5/5
Value for Money 5/5
Appearance 5/5
Delivery 5/5

Quality of the Jewellery; This jewellery is good quality and well made. I love the choice and the designs are unique and unusual. The sterling silver items are hallmarked with the ‘925’ stamp so you know they are great quality for the price.
Value for Money; I had the Snowflake necklace free with my order, and I still ended up with four more items for less than £29, and because I chose all sterling silver, I would expect the prices to be higher, very pleased with the value for money.
Appearance when worn; Both unusual and unique looking, the jewellery (especially the triangle necklace) are excellent additions to your jewellery sets. Its design is eye catching due to the shape, something that is both irregular and pretty. I like to be an individual, and with so much choice, this website allows me to choose an array of items to mix and match. I really like the arrow necklace because it’s dainty and cool, it also matches some earrings I got from Cherry Diva (search for that review on my categories).
Delivery; The jewellery was sent out quickly, and I was most impressed with the boxed items, which came with cute pegs and were appropriately packaged to keep the items secured. All of the packaging has the Jewellery Box logo on it, and it all looked very professional.

Thank you very much for reading this review and unboxing, I have loved sharing the pieces with you, when you find a good product or website it’s always good to shout about it, right? I am already considering more purchases and even some awesome gift ideas for friends for 2017. With so much choice and variations to choose from it’s a wonderful place to search for something new.

I hope you have enjoyed this post, I will put the website links at the end of the page for any of you who would like to browse the Jewellery Box products in my post or search for your birthstone or by metal for example. There are so many things to see, I can guarantee you it is worth a look.

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

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.

If you would like to order a TreatBox for yourself or for a gift for someone then you can find Treatbox subscriptions and build a box at their website

If you aren’t sure on whether to try a TreatBox for yourself or not I would say order a one off box, and then if you’re happy with it you can always subscribe afterwards. Check out my previous posts on the Treat Boxes I have received so far, in this unique category of my website called ‘Treatbox’ which is especially for these box reviews and reveals

Thanks for reading my reveal post, I hope you’ve enjoyed this reveal. Have a great January! And remember, You Got This!
