Kawaii Box Unboxing And Review

I was gifted this products for free in return for a blog post and YouTube content. All opinions are my own!

For the longest time, I have wanted to work with Kawaii Box. I have always wanted one of their boxers but I just figured that I couldn’t afford it so I gave up on the idea.

That was until Kawaii Box allowed me to receive one of their boxes to review and unbox for you lovely readers.

I was so excited for this Box to arrive, I had been waiting at the door everyday at post time so that I wouldn’t miss the box.

As soon as the boxes arrived, I was so excited. I rushed to my desk to unbox it straight away!

The box was the Valentine’s Day box which was perfect because I received it a day before Valentine’s Day.

Also, can we just take a minute to talk about the packaging! How effing beautiful is the box?!

I’ll talk a little about each item first.

The first thing that I pulled out the box was a super cute DIY bracelet bead kit. This was adorable and I decided straight away that I was going to make a bracelets as soon as I’d finished this post and edited my YouTube video. Although I’m an adult, I still appreciate a bit of fun so this bead kid was lovely. If you have kids, it would be a fun thing to do together.

The second thing that I noticed was the pink trinket box. This little heart shaped box is just the cutest! I’m going to use it to store any spare craft pieces and buttons. I think it would look super cute on my desk.

I then found some SakuPan panda snacks. I didn’t want to share my snacks with anyone as they were super yummy. I did end up giving one to Simon though and he weirdly didn’t like them. He doesn’t like strawberry flavoured things though and these were strawberry flavoured so that’s to be expected.

Following the super yummy snacks, I pulled out some adorable Pompompurin socks. They are super fluffy and kawaii and I just love them so much. In fact, I am wearing them as I type this.

In the box, there was also a super kawaii Hello Kitty and Pompompurin dish. This dish would be perfect on a bedside table where you can put your watch and rings and anything else you can think of. It would just look the absolute cutest.

Also, there was a lovely cat pass. I think that’s what I’m going to call it. It’s like a pass that ‘professional’ wear on a lanyard and I love it. If you know me, then you’ll know that I love lanyards.

Possibly my least favourite thing (which I still really enjoy) was a pink squishy heart. It is a slow rising squishy which I love and it also comes on a little chain so you can hang it on stuff.

Another thing that I received in the box was a mechanical pencil. It has a little sweet charm on it and although it arrived broken (but I fixed it), I still love it.

One of the other things that I receive were some panda stickers. Simon claimed these straight away and now they are his. He loves stickers a lot (which is odd for a 26 year old man) but ya know..

Lastly, I received a keyring. It has an adorable love heart on it and there’s also too little jars of pixie dust on them.

Simply Trios Chocolates

I was gifted these chocolates in return for me posting a review or talking about them on my social media.

You know what I love..? Chocolate!

When I was contacted by the very lovely Adam from Simply Trios, I jumped at the opportunity to review their chocolates.

Simply Trios started when Adam was just 13. He tried some little round sweets and was hooked so just had to try to make them himself. After a few failed attempts, he perfected his recipe and now we have a company called Simply Trios.

It was only last year that Adam decided to scale up and see what other people thought.

The chocolates came wrapped in perfect packaging that really protected the chocolates.

What chocolates are available?

The Speculoos – A caramelised biscuit Trio base covered in white chocolate.

The Peanut Nutter – A peanut Trio base covered in peanut butter milk chocolate, topped with either a honey roasted peanut or a caramelised sesame coated peanut. 


The Artful Dodger – A childhood flashback. A jammy shortcake Trio base with strawberry gummy pieces covered in white chocolate with strawberry syrup swirls. 

The Dark Horse – Adding some spice back into life. A smooth, light ginger Trio base, covered in rich dark chocolate.

The Choco-Oro-Honeyo – An orange-creme Trio base, covered in milk chocolate orange with honeycomb chunks.

The Puffin – A puffed pastry lemon Trio base covered in white chocolate and coated with meringue pieces. 

The Original White – A little extra indulgence. Our original Trio base covered in white chocolate.

The Malted Milk – For all malt lovers out there! A malt Trio base covered in milk chocolate.

The Cookie Crumble – Our original Trio base filled with cookie chunks, covered in milk or white chocolate, and sprinkled with cookies and creme pieces.

The Original Milk – Where it all began. Our original Trio base covered in milk chocolate. Simple simplicity.

My verdict

My absolute my favourite was The Speculoos but this was super hard to choose as I loved them all so much. I shared them with Simon but trust me, I didn’t want to share.

The Artful Dodger was probably a second favourite as it was full of taste and flavour.

With each chocolate only costing 75p, you should definitely treat yourself to all of them. You can cut them up and have a taste testing session with a friend or you could simply keep them all for yourself.

I know that I’ll be purchasing their chocolates again, especially The Speculoos. I might have to buy that one in bulk!

Have you ever tried Simply Trios before?

I’m Doing A Dechox!

If you know me then you’ll know that I’m often trying to raise money for charity.

That is why, I’m jumping on the band waggon and doing a dechox to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.

The British Heart Foundation has helped halve the number of people dying from heart and circulatory disease in the UK but sadly every day hundreds of people lose their lives. It’s only thanks to support from people like us that the BHF can create new treatments and discover new cures. £24 could pay for two hours of research by an early career scientist, but every pound helps so please give what you can to help me hit my target.

I’m trying to raise at least £50 by giving up chocolate for the whole of February. That means NO more hot chocolate, chocolate cookies or Easter Eggs.

If you do decide to support me then thank you SO MUCH!
