My Treat Box unboxing / Review – August 2016

I got my Treat Box even before August began, this month, but have only just had the chance to put my fingers to the keyboard and get a post written up for you. Treat Box is, still, one of my favourite subscription boxes out there. For £12.95 a month (or less if you sub for more months at once) you get really cute lifestyle, home and general accessory type items which fit a theme and are likely to make you feel a bit warm and fuzzy inside. A really good investment of my birthday money as it still makes me smile, every month, now. 

This month I opened the box to be greeted with this postcard. I’m not big on motivational quote thingies because a lot of them don’t sit right with me, but there’s something we could all do with aiming for, and that’s our dreams. Alright so we can’t necessarily work to win the lottery, or force ourselves to meet ‘the one’, but it’s worth reminding ourselves what our dreams are and trying to see what little steps we can take towards them – Applying for that new job, writing out a page of the novel in our head, saying hello to someone new or even something as small as teaching yourself how to make the perfect chocolate cake. Dreams are important, don’t forget them. 
This month’s box has a lovely rainbow, dreamy type theme to it and I love it. It’s got a nice mix of home things as well as a few little extras and stationery (always a win for me).
The only thing which won’t show up in a future picture is the mini set of fairy lights, I just couldn’t get them to photograph well, but aren’t they cute and what a fun idea for a box! 
I really love the colours of these three little cards. I think the top two will be used, as intended, as greetings cards but I think I’ll be saving the bottom one to help decorate my new book shelves once they’re up. I’m planning on having pretty cards, flowers, figures etc to make my book shelves look super pretty and this card will fit right in. 
I have no idea what I’ll do with the rainbow patch but I’ll find it a home as I am loving everything rainbow at the moment. 
The notebooks like bent but they’re not, it’s simply the way the packaging is sitting, I love the colour of these and the quote on the front. If there’s one thing I definitely don’t need more of, it’s note books… but in the exact same breath it’s one thing I’m always happy to get more of even though I don’t need them. Stationery addict through and through. 
Continuing the rainbow theme… These little bath bombs, in raninbow shades, are really cute and have chunky glitter in them which will brighten up any bath time. And who doesn’t love rainbow drops? I haven’t had these in years but even just looking at the packet I can remember how they taste, a little bit of childhood right there.
This decorative tile is just beautiful and will definitely have a home in our newly decorated living spaces. It’s another message which is really important to me. When you are ill it’s so easy to spend your day pacing yourself, making sure you don’t overdo it and resting so that you can get the basics done. But it’s important (for healthy, and not) to be able to take some time in every day to do something you love – Take some quiet time with your children, eat something you enjoy, read a chapter of a book or talk to someone who makes you smile. Again, it doesn’t have to be big things, but just things that make every day worthwhile. 
Sometimes I struggle to make time for me, so this little tile will be perfect to keep reminding me. 
As always, I love the box, I love the variety and the quality of the items. I am, already, looking forward to next month’s and can’t wait to see what warm and fuzzy smiles it provokes.
