I hope you’re all well.
Today I’m going to be chatting to you about a little subscription service called The Uni Box.
Basically, it’s a care package for uni students, that you can treat yourself to, or buy for your daughter/son/best friend/niece/nephew or whoever the hell you want to, to let them know you’re thinking about them, and just send them some treats.
In this post I’m going to show you what was in the February box, so that you can have a little look, and then decide if the March box is something you or your loved one want a bit of. You can also get 15% off with the code UNIBOX15. Right, let’s get into it.
What a lovely idea, don’t you think?! I love the fact that it has little necessities; vitamins, soap, a pen, but also snacks that are snacks (sometimes, we don’t want bloody fruit), and a little bit of luxury in the form of hazelnut infused coffee granules.
I didn’t go to uni, but getting this little package of goodies sent to me still had the same effect. I can imagine university to be similar to my life at the age I would’ve gone to Uni; a time of being generally skint and generally hungover.
I may be wrong, but I can’t imagine that I am – what with the fact at Uni, you go out on a Tuesday and get plied with alcohol that’s dirt cheap and gives you a bad throat, and spend days recovering and eating shitty food.
Don’t get me wrong, after a night on the prosecco and double vodka and cranberries, there’s nothing I want more than a Domino’s Meateor and a side portion of wedges, but let’s be honest, it doesn’t actually do us any good.
The other morning, after a typical Brighton Girl night on the above named drinks, it did me the world of good to reach over to my dressing table and stuff my face with a raspberry marshmallow bar rather than ordering a Wagamama’s at 11.30am.
Another thing I can imagine university to be, is quite lonely at times; obviously you’re studying and partying and making lots of new friends and memories, but if you’re at a university not in your home town and you’re away from your family and old friends, it can’t be easy; if it’s your friend or family member that’s in that situation, I honestly think that The Uni Box is a great way to say ‘I’m thinking of you’, rather than just your average text or FaceTime.
I’d love to see some snaps of your Uni Box, whether it’s one you’ve sent to yourself, or a picture of your best mates that you send to them; and make sure you let me know your thoughts too!
I can’t wait to get my hands on my March box; albeit, Drunk Me is most excited for further hungover treats, but I also feel like because I didn’t go to uni and just got drunk instead, I’m kind of still going…even if it is just treating myself to a care package that has the word ‘uni’ on.
I hope you enjoyed this post and I’ll speak to you all soon!
All my love BGP xx
