Over the last few months, I’ve seen loads of my favourite bloggers collaborating with each other on posts and quite frankly guys… I felt a little left out *wipes tear*. I kid but seriously, I’ve seen a ton of blogger collaborations and I wanted in because they look fun and it’s always a chance to support another blogger at the same time so win, win in my opinion! Lisa from Lisa’s Notebook, who’s became a good blogging friend over the last year asked me if I’d like to collaborate in October so of course I said yes and of course I suggested a Autumn-themed collaboration.
Originally we had set a budget of £10 and all the items in the box had to be Autumnal themed. We quickly realised that £10 was utterly ridiculous and I literally couldn’t find anything so we upped it to £18, which was far more reasonable and realistic! I loved searching for the bits and bobs I was going to send Lisa and chose some things I knew she’d like (well, hoped she’d like!) steering well clear of anything that smelt like pumpkins. Lisa definitely did a much better job at budgeting and finding better value for money items than I did, I honestly don’t know how she managed to get this much for so little! But anyway, here we go, here’s what’s in my Autumn themed box swap!
KIKO Milano Green Me On-The-Go Masks
I don’t use face masks but I really do want to start so these will definitely get used! There’s a yellow, pink and blue clay mask in the box which look idiot proof to use (thenakfully) so I’m looking forward to giving these a try!
DW Home White Pumpkin Scented Candle
I’ve never smelt a White Pumpkin candle before but wowzers! What a scent! This is definitely a very Autumnal scent and something that will definitely get used, either in my room or no doubt my Mum will pinch it for the living room!
Dusky Pink Scarf
I’m not sure which brand this is as there wasn’t a label but this was a really good find from Lisa because it’s my favorite colour and definitely my style of scarf! I’ll 100% get a lot of use out of this in the Winter!
Again I don’t know which artist this was but this is such a bloody cute little print! Look at his little face! Definitely Autumnal, definitely cute and I’ll definitely be trying to find somewhere nice for this throughout Autumn!
Hardy’s French Truffles
Chocolate or edible items always go down well with me so I was looking forward to trying these. I love truffles and rich, creamy chocolate and these were very, very rich! If you love chocolate orange these will go down a treat with a cuppa!
Décopatch Mini Kit
Lisa very kindly remembered that I had mentioned on Twitter a few times that I was looking for more screen-less activities to do because I literally stare at a screen all day every day so including this kit was a really good shout and perfect for Autumn too because it’s a cute little bat!
Christopher Robin 3D Stickers
I’m totally ashamed to say that I haven’t seen Christopher Robin yet (I know, I wanna punch myself too) but I will eventually and I know I’ll just love it. These 3D Pooh sticks are so cute, I’m not sure where I’ll use them yet but I certainly will!
What a great idea! I bet the candle smells divine!
It really does!
I think I need to take Lisa shopping with me in future, given that she managed to get you so much! 😂 These are some gorgeous items, and the squirrel print is ADORABLE. The truffles sound tasty, too. Just read Lisa’s post about what you got her and you nailed it, too. What an awesome collaboration!
Thanks Ruth 🙂 I’m shocked at how much she managed to get for relatively little!

I absolutely adore those Christopher Robin stickers! I need to find some of those. You got some really lovely bits, and this is such a nice idea. I bet that candle smells incredible! xx

It smells divine!
The candle sounds great xx
I love this! Some really sweet products here and Lisa knows you soo well. I’ve seen some many box swaps with bloggers recently I feel they’re a really good collaboration. Anything crafty is brilliant for this time of year! You can do this on a cold night in. I’m heading over to Lisa’s now!

Hope you like Lisa’s post too! She definitely did a better job than I did!
Lisa found some really sweet gifts for you!
She sure did 🙂
Yes, there is so much excitement with lots of little ones don’t you think ?
A bit like winning all the prizes in a lucky draw.
I loved going through your gift box with you. Although all of Lisa’s choices were very thoughtful, I loved the scarf the best.
Sometimes it is much more fun to receive lots of Little Presents than one big one. I have found that Little Joys bring great happiness.
I would be flattered if you checked out my latest blog post Little Joys.
I am posting the link below:
I much prefer lots of little presents rather than one big one!
Amazing parcels sent & received! Lovely blog post too!
Thank you 🙂
This is so cute!! You have made me so want to do a box swap with someone!
The squirrel print is adorable and I also think any offline crafting hobby is a good idea. I really want to do some more crafting projects but I just don’t ever find the time.
I’m exactly the same! I don’t have the patience either!
The little bat kit looks so cute! It would be so perfect as a halloween decoration once it was completed. Of course I am always partial to crafty stuff haha! I live that little squirrel print too, it’s so sweet! And I totally need to look for a white pumpkin scented thing now. I love these box swap posts they are so much run!
Would definitely recommend white pumpkin, it smells delicious!
Loved this post!!
Thank you 🙂
this is such a cute idea! bath and body works just came out with a white pumpkin scent and i haven’t had a chance to spell it but i’m really looking forward to seeing what it smells like. this would be fun to do with someone from a different country, granted it’d be more expensive but interesting to see the differences in what each country stocks for seasonal. xx

Oooh I bet that’ll smell amazing!
That was such a good idea. I’ve never heard of white pumpkin scented candles, now I’m going to have to see if I can find them here. I love the squirrel print too. So so cute. Enjoy your goodies.
Thank you 🙂 Hope you find some white pumpkin scented things!
This is such a cute box and the candle sounds amazing!
Love, Amie ❤

Right! Lisa did a great job 🙂
This was such a cute post! I love all of your choices but the squirrel print is absolutely amazing and I want one for myself now 😂.

Hehe it’s from Pastel Elixir!
Boxswaps are my fave to do and fave to read!
They’re so much fun 🙂
What a lovely idea! The Squirrel Print is so adorable and perfect for Autumn. I love the sound of the KIKO On-The-Go Masks. I’ve used some of Kiko’s makeup before but haven’t tried one of these. Can’t believe all of that cost £18!
I know! I don’t know how she’s managed that!
The little bat kit is so adorable. I see a lot of the swaps and get super jealous too but I’ve got a few coming up that I can’t wait for! Yay!

This is such a really lovely idea for a post! Love that it’s autumnal themed! The squirrel print has to be my favourite it’s so cute! I’ve never heard to that kiko mask but it sounds very interesting, great post x
I can’t wait to try them 🙂
What a fab swap box collaboration! I really love all the items Lisa picked out especially the squirrel print and the Christopher Robin stickers. 😍
I love the stickers! I’m going to use some later on a pen pals letter 🙂
oh my god! this is such a cute idea – I’d love to do a box swap with one of my friends, having a budget too would be a fun challenge! Thanks for sharing xx
It was a fun challenge!
Everything looks gorgeous, what a lovely box to receive! Honestly looks like so much thought and care has gone into it.
That bat looks like it’ll be so much fun to decorate.
The squirrel print has me squeaking “aww”. Just look at it’s wee tilted head! It’s adorable!

It’s so cute isn’t it!
I love the idea of doing a collab like this! I’m loving these bits that Lisa got you and that too only in £18!
Those chocolate truffles sound delicious! 😍
They are BEAUTIFUL!

She did such a great job didn’t she! 🙂
What a lovely thing to do – I think this is such a sweet thing, now I want to do a box swap!! x
I’d love to do another one!
I absolutely love clay masks!!! This is like the perfect box, I’m so proud of all the hard work you guys put in!
Haha awh thank you! I’m looking forward to trying the mask!
Such a lovely idea x
Love this! I haven’t been asked to collaborate either haha but I’m prettt new, so I guess that’s why!
Definitely but once you make some blogging friends it’s easier to collaborate with them 🙂
OMG this idea is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! Lovely little post as well 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Aw, Jenny, I’m so glad you love all your bits and pieces! I know not everything was strictly Autumnal but a bit of self-care never goes amiss, and I couldn’t resist those Christopher Robin stickers for you, haha. The squirrel print is from Pastel Elixir and the scarf was from our local artisan market, hence no label. As regards budgeting, I have a lot of practice because of Flora 🙂 I hope you enjoy your decopatch kit, it’s something Flora and I do from time to time and it’s very relaxing – plus you have something cute at the end of it too, win win. Thank you so much for collaborating with me, I really love all my treats too xxx

I love the self care items too! I can’t wait to do my bat and maybe hang it up somewhere! So glad you loved your stuff too! xxx
Yay! I love this Jenny, two of my fave bloggers collaborating! I’ve just been on Lisa’s blog and absolutely loved the treats you found. Lisa has done an equally fantastic box too, everything here is so lovely and thoughtful! I’ve never tried Décopatch but it looks so much fun! You will have to let me know how you get on, it sounds like such an enjoyable and creative hobby. Yay for Pastel Elixir, I have the same squirrel print on my wall too, it’s adorable and perfect for this time of year too. I’d love to see Christopher Robin, those stickers are super cute. Face masks, candles and truffles = perfect pamper evening. Fab post, thank you for sharing your goodies! <3 xx
