Autumnal box swap with Lisa’s Notebook

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.

Autumn, Candle, Chocolate, KIKO, Christopher Robin

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!

Squirrel Print

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!

Lisa did an amazing job of finding all these items and I thoroughly love and will 100% use them all! If you want to check out Lisa’s post on my box, head over to her blog here! What did you think of these bits and bobs?

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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 😂.

  7. 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!

  11. 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

  12. 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! ❤ xx
