As we reach half way through the year I cannot begin to wonder how fast the remainder of 2022 will go! So let us make the most of it and treat ourselves when it is within our means to do so!
What was inside the June 2022 Treatbox UK?
June 2022 Calendar Print Treatbox Original Planner and Monthly Notepad (2+ years worth of monthly pages) Watermelon Lip Balm 10ml Handbag Size Pot Flower & White ~ White Chocolate and Raspberry Crumble Bar 20g Vitamasques Nourish Multivitamin Metallic Sheet Mask 21ml Treatbox Original Gold Keyring with Quote “No Rain, No Flowers” Treatbox Print “be gentle with yourself, you’re doing the best you can” Heishi Bracelet with Gold Heart Centre (Colours at Random mine was Lilac)
My Honest Opinion for this Month
What a fabulous planner! I am all for staying on top of things like appointments and birthdays, I don’t like using my phone for everything these days as I’m trying to reduce my screen time. So using something like this Treatbox Original planner is right up my street! I love how colourful is is too!
I also really like the print this month, and the bracelet is stunning. It is lightweight and pretty against any skin tone, I received Lilac and Purple shades are some of my favourites so yay!
The Lip Balm is super summery and I have it on right now as I’m typing this out! It smells good too!
Love the fact that the Calendar Print and the Planner have the same design, colours are good!
I am looking forward to using the face mask this coming weekend on my down time self care hour and I am also going to enjoy munching the chocolate bar! White Choc and Raspberry is one of the best combinations out there, am I right?
Finally, a pretty keyring which I am going to stick on the opposite side of my handbag to the other keyring we got a few boxes ago!

Hello! It’s time for the March 2022 Treatbox UK unboxing, Reveal and Review!
March is my Birthday month, and it is of course when we welcome Spring and everything about new life! I was excited when I opened the box and the theme inside was “Daisy” as in the flowers! I wonder what treats await me…
I decided to video record my unboxing for this Treatbox, it has been years since I did one but I felt like the time was right to bring the video aspect back! You can see it on my Facebook page or my Instagram account if you would prefer to watch the video. If not please keep reading as I unbox this amazing March box from TreatboxUK.
What is Inside the March 2022 Box?
Treatbox UK March 2022 Calendar Print Daily Mood Colouring Page Treatbox Original Notepad with Daisy’s Oxeye Daisy Seeds for us to Plant Silver Plated Daisy Earrings Clipper Chamomile Tea x 2 Bags Daisy Pin Badge “You are one of a kind so be Kind to yourself” Daisy Chain Coaster “You’re so beautiful when you bloom your own way” Yellow Daisy Pen
What is my Honest Opinion on this Box?
I LOVED IT!
Okay so I have had A LOT of Treat boxes over the years, and this March 2022 box is right up there with some of the greats. I loved the Daisy theme, and I loved how the theme was apparent across everything in the box, from the bought items through to the Treatbox Originals.
I loved every item, but if I had to pick three favourites they would be… The Earrings, The Daisy Pin Badge and the Coaster. But closely followed by the Notepad and the Colouring sheet. I think these unique colouring pages are an excellent calming aspect of the boxes and I would love to keep seeing them included in the Treat boxes to come.
Overall a wonderful box that has left me with very high expectations for April! (Oops!) I loved that we had items to do and to use and to make, rather than them all just be items to sit around gathering dust. PLUS I thought that no face / eye masks this month was a great thing too! It’s wonderful to have new things that we have not seen in Treatbox yet. I now have so many coasters that are all so unique I am just going to start collecting Coasters now, it’s my new thing 😀
A TOP TOP TOP BOX! Thanks Zoe and the Team for creating this extra special box this month!
Thank you for reading this Unboxing Reveal today, I hope you have enjoyed it.
Please pop by in early April to see the next Reveal and Review of Treatbox UK! OR Check out my social media for the unboxing video which will be going live once I receive the box!
Have a lovely month of March and I hope to see you back again soon.
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
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.
I was lucky to have won a Trollbeads bracelet back in 2016 it came just as it was, a gorgeous and intricate twisted bracelet with unique clover lock and spacer bead. I bought a single bead for it which was a clear one, very iridescent in the light. In 2018 I was gifted an Orchid Flower bead by my Father and Step Mother which I also added to it. I love my bracelet, it is so well made with quality throughout its design.
When I had an email a couple of weeks ago from Trollbeads saying they were releasing a special bead, and it would feature Rainbow and money would be going to charity too, I knew I wanted one to add to my bracelet.
Rainbows mean a lot to me and my family, my son is a Rainbow Baby. It has become a symbol of hope during this pandemic and is now more important than ever to so many people.
The bead features a Rainbow colours design with clouds attached to the centre sphere and outer smoothness of the bead. It is beautiful and unique looking. I’m so glad I managed to get one because they are limited edition, and the first batch sold out within a couple of hours of their launch.
It is a beautiful bead, very well made and such stunning bright colours. As you can see on my photograph above mine is extra unique as it has a single bubble in the centre too. I am happy I purchased one, it really brightens up my bracelet and I love to wear it alongside my other two beads.
Overall I am very happy I bought this bead, and I am happy I have donated to charity while having something to enjoy for my lifetime. Trollbeads UK are excellent in both quality and service, I highly recommend them. Because their glass beads are so unique you get something extra special in my opinion, they are not mass produced like some other jewellery and bead companies. And these Limited Edition ones are usually even more amazing.
So back to the charity donation part, Trollbeads are giving £4 from every bead sold, so technically the bead costs you just £36 when you minus your donation. The £4 will be donated to the Charity “NHS CHARITIES TOGETHER”. They are supporting NHS staff, the volunteers and the patients who have been impacted by COVID-19 all across the United Kingdom. If you buy a bead and accompanying bracelet for £120 they are donating £12 from that to the charity.
Click the website banner below to head on over to the Trollbeads website if you’d like to purchase one for yourself. (If they have any left! Keep an eye on their website and social media for updates as I think they were making some more).
From The Trollbeads Website – Description of the Together Apart Bead
Together Apart Bead £40
Weight: 1.95 g
Main Material: Glass
We will get through this together.
The bead has two rainbows and two clouds.
This is a Limited Edition release. Limited Editions are rare or unique beads which are only released in very small quantities.
Each glass bead is handmade from red-hot glass over an open flame and no two glass beads are ever completely alike. This goes for size, colouration & pattern. Your bead is absolutely unique and will have slight variations from the bead pictured.
I recently made a purchase from The Woodland Gift Company, who I have been following on Facebook for quite some time. I have chosen to support small businesses where possible during this difficult time. Plus they had some gorgeous earrings! I was looking for something Rainbow related, but when I saw these I just fell in love with them.
The stunning Rainbow Coloured Sterling Silver Flowers really stand out. They are beautiful and good quality.
They arrived in lovely packaging and the little extra additions of the string and the paper rose, it just made the experience extra special.
Overall I would say I’m very happy with my purchase, the service was 5 star and the delivery was good too despite the current restrictions. I would definitely purchase from the company again after this good experience.
The earrings are unique, excellent quality with the 925 silver mark on the back. They are lightweight and the perfect size for my ears. They don’t get in the way of my gradual lobe piercings (which I thought they might). I would highly recommend them. And The Woodland Gift Company are giving some money to charity for every pair purchased as well.
If you would like to see more products from this company you can find their current stock and choices on their website The Woodland Gift Company
And if you’d like to follow them on social media then here is their Facebook
I bought these particular Earrings in the Spring of 2020.
Thank you for reading this review today, I hope you have enjoyed it. If you would like to see more Rainbow related products click the tab category Rainbow on my home page. Have a lovely day!
Le Petit Bola is a company based in France who create beautiful Harmony Jewellery for Pregnant women. Here is a quote from them…
“Originally from Indonesia the concept of a Harmony Necklace is known about worldwide. It is a pregnancy jewel that is a long necklace made of chain, string or fabric. There is a pendant situated at the end usually in the shape of a ball, often made of silver. This necklace is worn by expecting mothers on their belly, at the closest point to baby. Inside the ball of the necklace is another smaller ball which makes a light and sweet sound when the ball is moved”.
I won a competition and I’m so happy with my prize. The harmony ball necklace is not only beautiful aesthetically but the idea of its balance between mother and baby is also a lovely one. With fast delivery and friendly staff I’m very happy with my experience. There are so many choices on the website that I was spoilt in my decision on which one I wanted. This is the perfect gift for an expecting mother that can then be a lovely reminder of that time she carried her baby.
In the end I chose the Amethyst Necklace because this precious stone is linked to my own birthday. My necklace arrived in gorgeous packaging, a heart envelope and then a card that translates from the French “Je À’ttends mon bébé” to the English of “I’m waiting for my baby”. There were nutty fudge treats and the Harmony Necklace even has it’s own fabric bag. As well as pretty confetti thrown in too!
Here is more information about Le Petit Bola.
Based in the South of France this little studio creates harmony necklaces for pregnant women. The necklace creates a bond between mother and child by playing music from inside the ball itself. The idea is that baby hears it from inside the womb because the necklace is long and situated on the mothers bump. The unique bond between a mother and her baby is so precious.
Thank you for reading this review today, you can find out more by visiting Le Petit Bola on their website or on Social Media pages.
Today I have the pleasure to bring you a collaboration with *Abelini Jewellery. Their new campaign #MyAbelini has been created to help customers to find their ideal piece of jewellery. Whether you like Gold, Platinum, White Gold or Rose Gold Jewellery, Abelini have something for everyone, to suit all styles and tastes.
A Sparkling Collaboration
I have been approached by the incredible London based brand Abelini, to be a part of their new campaign #MyAbelini and I’m so excited about it. This collaboration saw me browse their unique collection and choose a piece of jewellery that I felt fitted my personality. The #MyAbelini campaign wants people to choose their unique piece to suit their individual style. It’s a celebration of diamond jewellery and a persons unique tastes. Abelini want people to “Wear It! Click It! Share It!” And show off their #MyAbelini Jewellery choices.
Abelini are based in the Capital City of London situated in Hatton Garden area, where they specialise in exquisite designs of jewellery. Including Rings, Pendants and Earrings, as well as Bracelets. If you would like to discuss about a bespoke piece they can accommodate a design that is unique to you and create it for you. Abelini pride themselves on turning Jewellery Dreams into Jewellery Realities.
You can also make appointments to go in store and pick your own Diamond, for example for an engagement ring. The types and styles available at Abelini can be seen in the images below.
I personally like Silver, White Gold or Rose Gold Jewellery, so I knew that was how I would narrow down my decision. My second parameter was that I would prefer a Necklace or Pendant, mostly because I have multiple piercings on my ears and cannot currently wear any dangling ones because my young son would pull at them.
I found the Pendant I liked part way down the page and I instantly loved the shape of it. As my eyes traced the design I knew it would be perfect for me and for doing this review. The necklace has a circular design that adds elegance to whatever I decide to wear it with.
When choosing Jewellery for myself I often go for a Silver shade because of my skin tone. I also like Rose Gold but find that the metal is harder to match clothing with. So much can compliment silvers.
I find that choosing quality jewellery means you’re making an investment, rather than needing to replace cheap items whose metal goes bad due to wear. Jewellery isn’t meant to stay hidden away in a box forever, it is meant to be worn and enjoyed.
About The Piece I Chose
The necklace I chose is called a Round Diamond Solitaire Pendant. It features a beautiful multifaceted stone that sits perfectly inside the spherical design. From any angle it looks beautiful, catching the light and sparkling. It is a nice size so it looks delicate when worn and compliments many styles of outfit because of its shape.
Each piece of jewellery comes inside an Abelini box so you can keep it safe when it isn’t being worn.
The quality of the piece I have is excellent and I cannot believe how sparkly it is. I love how the diamond is set inside a thick circular rim of the pendant and the chain is also beautiful with delicate tiny ovals. It looks delicate yet sturdy, it’s made with quality metal and finished with such shine it reflects like a mirror.
As you can see in the images below the pendant is both delicate and a size that makes it stand out. On a sunny day it sparkles with beauty and the silver compliments many coloured clothes. The size of this necklace is perfect for me, I feel like I chose well.
In order to make my review a sparkling success I wanted to take my time and photograph the necklace from many angles. Something this pretty deserved to be accompanied by a range of things that showed it off. Because the Pendant is round it was easy to photograph.
Here are some more of my images that I have purposefully created to show this necklace in it’s best light.
Thank you for stopping by Severn Wishes for this Collaboration Review today, I hope you have enjoyed it. And remember if you want to see more of the Abelini Jewellery please click on the links I have provided in the paragraph above.

Jewellery Box UK New Purchases Review & My Custom Pieces
I always buy my earrings from Jewellery Box UK but lately I have been looking at some of their other items. Some I had previously bought and have now considered getting them as gifts for others, due to their excellent quality but also their affordable prices.
When purchasing a gift recently I came across a Heart Charm that I adored, but I had no necklace to put it inside. Then I had the great idea of sliding the charm on to a bracelet I already had. These are the two items and what the bracelet looks like with my idea completed.
My Jewellery Box UK Fave bracelets for everyone’s style! They have Infinity, Circles, Hearts, Stars and even Geometric pieces that all look more expensive than they are.
What I love the most about all of these bracelets is how they look expensive but are very affordable. They are delicate yet well made, their quality is apparent in the products shine and with the 925 hallmark stamps.
I cannot pick a favourite but I love how I have created my own piece using two of the Jewellery Box UK best sellers.
Here is a little more information about the bracelets you can see in my images and the charm I used to customise one of them too. I will also include website links if you wish to purchase anything yourself.

Hello and Welcome to the November 2018 Treatbox Reveal with Sabrina of Severn Wishes Blog.
Happy Treat Box Day Everyone! It’s the last Treatbox of the year before the Christmas box!
This month the Treatbox UK theme is “Freedom and Me Time”.
The little sticker reads “With Love” attached to a deep navy blue tissue paper.
Here are all of the contents of the November 2018 Treatbox.
This month there are 6 items in the Treatbox plus a Calendar Print and an A5 Print.
Calendar Print for November 2018
A5 Print – Definition of Hygge
Treatbox Colouring Book featuring Treatbox drawn pictures
Set of Colouring Pencils
Pair of Socks – Polar Bears Design
Treatbox Rose Gold Heart Wish Bracelet
Spacemasks – Interstellar Relaxation
Kiwi Slice Eye Pads
Here is a selection of my photographs of this month’s box, I hope you enjoy seeing the items up close.
My favourite pieces in this box have to be the Colouring Book with Pencils, the Socks, and the Bracelet. As a mum to a young baby I don’t get much time to do things like face masks anymore! Ha! Ha! Maybe one day I can get an afternoon to myself, have a pamper! And with that in mind I hope that they will keep! It’s a lovely idea for a proper pampering though!
My Overall Opinion
I enjoyed the fact that we had several Treatbox Original and Unique items this month. The bracelet is beautiful and the over all quality of the items is good. Although we only received socks in the September box I do love socks, I always have cold feet and you always need quality and cute socks! Especially now with Winter fast approaching, Socks are indeed wanted!

Hello and Welcome to the June 2018 Treatbox Reveal with Sabrina of Severn Wishes Blog.
Happy Treat Box Day Everyone! I have had a busy weekend with family, I realise I am bringing you this Reveal a few days later than usual, sorry! I do hope that you’ll still enjoy my review.
This month the theme is Sunshine and Gardening! When I open up the box first of all I can see the Calendar Print staring back at me and also a pretty A5 print too!
As I open bright pink coloured tissue paper with a sticker that reads “Bloom Where You Are Planted” I can see a variety of bright items.
Here are all of the items in the June 2018 Treatbox. (Remember they can vary slightly!).
This month there are 7 items in the Treatbox plus a Calendar Print and an A5 Print.
Calendar Print for June 2018 – Sunflowers Treatbox Sunflower Seeds Treatbox “You Are My Sunshine” Wish Upon A String Bracelet Summer Meadow Citrus Scented Mini Wipes Decoration – Garden Plaque “In Our Garden We Plant Dreams & Grow Miracles” Meal Planner and Shopping List Notepad Vintage Looking Slanted Tweezers Merci Handy – Hand Cream A5 Print – “Bloom Where You Are Planted” with Flowers
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 then please leave me a comment at the end of the post, I will do my best to find you an answer.
My favourite pieces from this box are the Seeds, Meal Planner Notepad, Wish Upon A String and the Print. All these items are good quality and worthwhile to have or to use. I have always liked the idea of Wish On A String Bracelets and the Print is lovely. I will definitely be using the Planner because I generally am an organisation freak so this is perfect for my lifestyle! The Seeds are a great addition to the box this month, something that you can enjoy as a family and an activity like planting gets you outside and enjoying fresh air too – a bonus!
My Overall Opinion
I really liked the theme this month with sunshine and gardening, two things I love! The items were a nice mixture of things this month, things to do, to wear, to keep and to enjoy. Nothing stood out to me particularly but I also thought the quality overall was good. There were a couple of items that were “new” as in we hadn’t received anything of this kind while I have been subscribed. This was a nice bonus this month and I’m happy that the majority of the June box will be used and enjoyed by my family and I.
Are you thinking of ordering a TreatBox for yourself or for a gift for someone?
Then you can find Treatbox subscriptions and build your own box at their website https://treatboxuk.com/
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.

If you enjoyed this post then why not check out my Reveal Video, click the link to see this latest one on my channel right HERE
Thanks for reading this post everyone! If you manage to watch my video right through to the end you will already know this, but I have to admit to you all that Treatbox might need to take a back seat on my blog for a while.
Although I have really enjoyed the Reveals of the months and years that I have been subscribed, my baby is coming soon and I won’t be able to put in the time and effort I would usually with the boxes. I don’t want to miss out, and I also enjoy the treats for myself once a month that I receive. But I have also noticed there are a few items in recent boxes that haven’t been suitable for me, this means I’m not enjoying the box to it’s full potential. I’m currently deciding whether or not I will stay subscribed, if I do then it won’t be to do a video reveal, only a photographic one.
So watch this space folks! And don’t forget Severn Wishes isn’t just about Treatbox! I write about every aspect of my life and review many a variety of things.
Thank you for your ongoing support, have a wonderful June!
