This month sees the first of my two blogger collaborations with the gorgeous Hello Bexa. Bexa is a fantastically thoughtful and supportive blogger and I’m so pleased that she wanted to collaborate with me. Her creative lifestyle blog is one of those I always check because there’s something for everyone, be it baking, photography, reviews, travel, or her incredibly helpful and useful blogger help posts. So I couldn’t be more thrilled that she chose to send me the July subscription box from TreatBox to review alongside her. I knew it would be amazing because, you know, Bexa picked it (!) and I couldn’t wait to dive in and see if it had me reaching for the stars!
TreatBox July box
TreatBox curate monthly subscription boxes with the aim of sending, “A hug in the post… to make you feel loved and uplifted.”
You can sign up for an ongoing service, buy a one off, send a gift, or make up your own box, so it’s a hugely flexible service. And it’s quick too, they ship the next working day and mine arrived very speedily.
July’s box, if you haven’t already picked this up from the first couple of pictures, has a French theme, which seems rather apposite, given their recent victory in a certain football tournament 🙂 Before I get started on my review, just a reminder, don’t forget to head over to Bexa’s blog to see what she thought of her July box too!
First up, how cute is this A4 print? I’m actually going to regift it to Flora as she already has a Joie de Vivre banner in her bedroom. And a luminous solar system on her ceiling which lights up at night. So this Reaching for the Stars print will be perfect for her room.
I said I was regifting the print to Flora but the little minx has also decided to appropriate this lovely coin purse and both of the button badges. To be fair, the badges are more her than me, but I might have to sneakily borrow back the purse from time to time. Given how small it is, I was surprised at what good quality the purse is, and it’s lined too.
I adore Sass & Belle products and you can never have too many photo frames, can you? This Hello Beautiful picture frame is especially lovely, I’m going to put a recent holiday photo in it and keep it in our bedroom.
My go to lip balm for ages has been my Arrow Boost Colour Enhancing stick which I adore. But I’m always up for trying new products and I have to say I’m hugely impressed with this BubbleT Lemongrass and Green Tea lip balm. It smells gorgeous, tastes lovely, and makes my lips feel beautifully soft and smooth. No mean feat considering the recent hot weather.
When I spoke to Bexa to let her know my TreatBox had arrived, she said she’d already taken all her photos because she couldn’t wait to eat the La Vie Est Belle iced ginger biscuit, haha. Having finally taken all my photos while Flora was at school, I can confirm that the biscuit was DELICIOUS. And, even better, I got to eat it all myself instead of having to share it!
The last item in my July TreatBox was this lovely pair of supersoft comfy cotton rich socks featuring the Eiffel Tower, hot air balloons, and the French flag. They’re far too pretty to be hidden away in shoes so, as soon as it’s sock wearing weather again (probably on the first day of the school summer holidays) I’m going to be wearing them around the house instead.
Final thoughts on my July TreatBox
All the products combined have a RRP of over £31 so for £12.95 including shipping I think this month’s TreatBox is excellent value with a fantastic range of goodies. My favourite treat was the lip balm but what I particularly love about this box is that I could share it with Flora too. Even if I didn’t get to choose everything I wanted to share…
Thank you so much for sending me this fabulous box, Bexa, I loved it!
