When Prestige offered to send me one of their bouquets of Mother’s Day Flowers I had no hesitation to say yes. For many years I didn’t really understand the desire for cut flowers as they didn’t live long, but over the past year or so I’ve really come to love them and whenever I get the chance to buy some flowers to brighten up the living room I will. Prestige is one of those brands I’ve heard of many times before but not, yet, ordered from and I was intrigued to see what their Mother’s Day flowers range contained – https://www.prestigeflowers.co.uk/mothers-day-flowers

That’s right, I decided to use some of my Christmas money to re-subscribe to TreatBox again because I used to really enjoy getting a random selection of lifestyle items and have had some long standing favourites from this box which I still use, and love, today. I have put my Glossybox subscription on hold, so my January post (watch this space) will be my last one for a while. I recently did a lot of beauty product sorting and I organised my samples in to boxes so that I can work my way through using them, I just don’t want to keep adding to them at the moment, especially as I got so many wonderful things in my beauty advents too. So, I digress, here’s my post for the January 2018 TreatBox.

I’ve been saving up some bits and bobs from boxes, special offers and various things to put in to a giveaway for a little while now and what better time to give you the chance to win a nice, big, prize than at New Year? I’ve ushered in the new year by setting up my new Bullet Journal and setting myself some, hopefully, achievable goals – If you’d like to see more than you can see my post for that here.

I’ve split the giveaway in to two parts – To beauty and lifestyle items so you can really see what’s included – There’s a lovely variety of things for you to win. As always the entry method is Rafflecopter and this giveaway is UK only.

I posted, in my main gift guide for 2017, that I recommend Imperial Candles as a great gift idea after I was sent one to try out this Christmas but I hadn’t reached the jewel in my candle at that point so couldn’t show you what I’d got and promised I’d come back and show you at a later date. I am so pleased to be coming back to show you my Imperial candle ring, now, especially because I’m a little bit in love with it.

It is safe to say that 2017 has been shaped by the use of my Bullet Journal, it’s done some great things for me. I have become more organised, I’ve been able to make sure I use each day for something good, I’ve learned to stop procrastinating and I feel like I’ve regained a level of control over my life, something which I’ve lost a lot of due to my health limitations. As such I’ve been really excited to set up my 2018 Bullet Journal and think about how I’ll be using it.

All of that just from a planner? Absolutely, yes, yes and yes. I wouldn’t have believed you, a year to 18 months ago, were you to tell me that a journal would have shaped my life so much, but it really has. Just look at my next photo to see how well loved, and how well used my journal is, I have used it for so many days and it’s give me focus and motivation on days which may otherwise have been lost.
