Unwrapping August's TreatBox

Another month has passed which means August is upon us! Luckily for TreatBox fans, Zoe is always very considerate and makes sure that we get our boxes on time. This month, the boxes were posted a few days early which meant that my box arrived on July 30. 

I could pretend that I've only opened this box today, however, I have no shame in admitting that I delved straight in as soon as it landed through the mail box!

This month has a 'dream' theme, and as soon as I opened the box, I knew it was going to be one of my favourites. I was greeted by a gorgeous 'Follow Your Dreams' inspirational card which came at a time when I really needed it. I'm turning 25 in five weeks, and my impending quarter life crisis is getting to me a bit. I don't feel as if I've achieved a lot in my almost 25 years on Earth, and whilst I know what I want to do in life, it's going to take a lot of work for me to get there. But no matter how long the journey takes, it's so important to follow your dreams in life, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. The gold embossing on the cloud background is truly beautiful and I've already put it on display in my room.

I then went on to unwrap the rest of the box, and once again, I was not left disappointed.

This month's TreatBox

The TreatBox contained:

'Follow Your Dreams' inspirational card
Rainbow Drops
Bath bombs
Rainbow iron-on patch
Fairy lights
'Follow Your Dreams' coaster
Three mini cards
Set of two notebooks

This box is seriously all kinds of lovely and just what I needed this month. The pastel coloured bath bombs look pretty and glittery. Whilst I'm a shower girl, they're enough to encourage me to take a relaxing soak in the bath!

The Rainbow Drops reminded me of my childhood (but mum pinched them so that was the end of my nostalgia). The rainbow iron-on patch is also really sweet.

I then opened the pink package - the sticker said 'something to brighten your day', and inside was some fairy lights! I went straight downstairs to insert batteries and then wrapped them around my bed! They're so bright and really add something special to my room. 

the lights around my bed!
Next up was a coaster with 'Follow Your Dreams' written on it. This was something different to what I've received from past boxes, and it was nice to see something more unusual like this!

To go with the 'Follow Your Dreams' coaster, there was the inspirational print which I mentioned earlier, as well as three mini cards. I adore these cards and their inspirational/cute messages! It's the kind of card I would love to receive, and I think that they would put a smile on anyone's face.

Finally, these two cute notebooks which are literally perfect for me. As an aspiring journalist, I am forever jotting things down and having madcap ideas at stupid o'clock, therefore these notebooks will be perfect for my ramblings. I particularly like the 'dream one size too big' one - it reminds me of the quote, 'aim for the moon, as even if you miss, you'll still be amongst the stars'. 

I've been subscribing to these boxes for a good few months now, and this is easily one of my favourite ones. I guess the goodies are just spookily appropriate for me at the moment, and it gave me a much needed smile when I opened the box.
