The Blurt Foundation: Pot luck Buddy Box

Other than scheduled a guestposts you may have noticed that I've been quiet the past week. This is because I had chosen to take a little break and focus on self care.  It was a spur of the moment decision and I'm glad I've taken some time out from writing and am now back to it.

Not long ago I came across The Blurt Foundation who are a amazing charity who work to increase awareness and understanding of depression. Their website is a great place to find advice, support and resources.

They also have a fab little shop where you can purchase products such as books, crafts, stationery, prints etc to help support the charity and help with you/ a friend's self care journey.

They also sell a wonderful subscription box which you can either buy as a one off or as a rolling monthly subscription. I recently purchased a pot luck box from them as a one off treat to myself and wanted to share its contents with my readers. 

This week happens to be Mental Health awareness week so this post is certainly a great time to share with you. 



The Buddy box was created for anyone who could benefit from a boost, a pick me up or a dollop of self care. It's a box filled with thoughtful and mood boosting treats . All the items included in the box are intended to make you feel good: helping you de-stress, find calm, feel pampered, relax, get creative, or simply have fun.

Each month the Buddy box contains 5 quality products that vary month to month and kept secret so when your box arrives the surprise is part of the experiance. There is also an option of the Buddy box lite which contains 3 items instead of 5 which can also be purchased as a one off or as a rolling monthly subscription.

You can also purchase some of the previous boxes and occasionally you can get your hands on a pot luck box which contains 6 items. They sell out very quickly and so if you want to get your hands on a pot luck one like I have you have to  be quick.


So what did I get in my pot luck buddy box? 


- Clipper Calomine tea
- A pocket box
- Yankee Candle in Sea Breeze
-  One Step at a time iron in badge
- sticky notes
- unplug A4 Print
- C'est la vie: The French art of letting go book 

I can see myself using nearly all the items in this box which is great as when it comes to surprise boxes they can be a bit of a risk. 





What do you think about the Buddy box? Is it something you would consider purchasing?
