TeachTreat Subscription Box

Last week, I got a very excited email from our school business manager that there was a box in my pigeon hole that looked quite exciting. When I got to my pigeon hole, I found this quite exciting looking package.

It’s roughly the size of a graze box. As I read through the letter, I realised that it is a teacher subscription box. WHOEVER it is that sent this to me KNOWS ME WELL. I am a sucker for a subscription box and I’m a sucker for anything teacher-y. I love my job, proper loads. A monthly dose of something to make me smile? YES PLEASE. 

I managed to withold the temptation and waited til I got home to open… and MY WORD WHAT A JOY IT IS.

This was the inside… AND LOOK AT ALL OF THOSE GOODIES.

First up was a very handy little notebook with some tips on having a productive PPA time… I can always do with some tips on having a more productive PPA. They’re also pretty bloody brilliant tips too!

I BLOODY LOVE THIS PENCIL. “I’m only Greater Depth with coffee”. I love a teacher joke me man. I got 2 of these pencils and they’ve kept me proper chuckling.

These “Straight Outta Assembly” badges might be my favourite thing in the box though… just such a lol. I put one on my lanyard the other day and so many of my collagues commented on how brilliant it was!

The other thing that was inside was some postcards. ALWAYS handy to have in the classroom. I use more postcards than I care to mention, so seeing them was a BRILLIANT addition!

There was a bottle opener, some hot chocolate and coffee and a brilliant lanyard also included in this box!

So how do you get one?

Having done some tip tapping on the interwebs, I have found where you can get this box AND the items separately! What a proper joy!

Click me if you’d like the box…

You can buy a one off (£10), a box as a gift for someone else (£10), a box for a term (£40) or a monthly box for the year (£120)!

How exciting… I am PROPER tempted to go and treat myself! 

Click me if you’d like the items…

I really like that you can buy the items separately too. I imagine items will be added as there are more and more boxes released!

A massive massive thank you to WHOEVER sent this to me! It’s so incredible to get a surprise in the post. 

I’m off to go and get myself a subscription… sorry, not sorry!

Wildest Dreams Book Box – March!

The other day, a box arrived at my house. It was a cardboard box… with THIS amazing logo on it…

I knew what this meant… WILDEST DREAMS BOOK BOX OPEN TIME. 

What an exciting life. 

If you are unfamiliar with Wildest Dreams (have you been living under a rock?!)… Wildest Dreams is a monthly subscription service started by my wonderful friend Zoe (of NoSaferPlace fame), which delivers a newly released book and other book related products, straight to your door. As well as the newly released book, the boxes come with a tea personalised to the book of the month (perfect for the tea lovers among us!) and a bookish bath/body product. There will be a few extras supplied every month too! You can sign up monthly, or buy a 3/6/12 month subscription! 

If you’d like to find out more and perhaps subscribe, check out the website here

I’ve been subscribed to Wildest Dreams Book Box for a few months and it’s always a pleasure opening the box to see what goodies lie in waiting for me! 

This month’s box had the theme of Family Ties.
So a book to do with families? 

Do you wanna see what’s in the box? If you don’t want spoilers, look away now!

The first thing I opened was the tea – inspired by the Carters (from The Hate U Give). It’s English Breakfast, which for me is an EXCELLENT thing because breakfast tea is my JAM. I am looking forward to giving this a try!

The next thing I spotted was this bottle of body wash/bubble bath. Inspired by the brilliantly ginger Weasley family. This is a brilliant full sized bottle of orange zest scented bath product. I’ve not used it yet, but I’ve heard brilliant things. I’m excited to use this as orange is one of my favourite scents!

The final thing I had was some tissues, and the book… (confession time, I didn’t remember to take a picture of the book, but I did open it!) I worry for my brain if I need tissues to read this book… SEND HELP. I am looking forward to checking out this book. I’ve heard lots of great things! 

And there you have it!
What a great box.

If you’re interested what was in February’s box, my wonderful friend Kelly (of Kelly’s Ramblings fame) reviewed the February box over on her blog: clicky click.

Wildest Dreams Book Box

Hello there!

Today brings something a little different to my blog! Today I am revealing to you all the amazing contents of my first ever book box subscription!

Welcome everyone to Wildest Dreams Book Box

Wildest Dreams was the brain child of my gorgeous friend Zoe (blogger and booktuber!) When I heard she was thinking of making a book box, I knew I needed to get in on it! It is only £18 per month, with discounts for 3 monthly, 6 monthly and yearly subscriptions! 

I was one of the very lucky ones who got 50 trial boxes for December… and this is what was in it! I am so proud! 

First off can we just appreciate how gorgeous these stickers are?! I love them!

The first two things I opened were this wonderful Sorting Bathbomb from Geeky Clean. I’m not gonna lie, I’m not a massive bath taker (I’m much more of a shower gal) but when I saw this, I was excited. I AM TERRIFIED however that it won’t be yellow… but we shall see. The second product I opened was tea inspired by After The Fire. For those of you who know Zoe, you will know that ATF is one of Zoe’s absolute favourite books for 2017, so it was no surprise to me that there was an ATF themed product in the box! If my memory serves me correctly, it’s chocolate and orange flavoured!

Having opened those lovely goodies, I was looking forward to getting to the book. I spotted this book plate and the bookmark (which is signed by the author!) in the box. Then I finally got to the book. I had my suspicions about what the book would be, but having opened the book I was totally wrong! Zoe has spoken a lot about this book over on her blog and it is one that I am yet to get my hands on, so to see it was a pleasant surprise! There’s also a brilliant note from the author about the book too
