August 2019 Fairy Loot Unboxing

FL

Mirielle has unboxed Fairyloot on our blog in the past, but this is my very FIRST box ever from this company.  I hadn’t bitten the bullet prior because I’m in Canada and the exchange rate  is just brutal on this one.  However, they recently got a shipping company in the states as well, so the shipping went down for US and Canada (Yippee) .  I won’t be getting this monthly because they overlap with Owlcrate quite a bit in terms of monthly books but I will get it here and there when the theme sounds good and the book is different.  Ok, let’s get to unboxing my very first Fairyloot.

Indigo: We Hunt The Flame Unboxing

Unboxing time! This is a Canadian box from Indigo/Chapters, which is a bookstore that is all over Canada.  Basically a Canadian Barnes and Nobles type of place.  They have started to get into curating these cute little boxes that you can pick up from select YA titles.  This is the second box I’ve purchased, the first one was a King of Scars box and I was pleased with it.  This is a curated box for We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizel.

Owlcrate Special Edition Finale Unboxing

It’s finally here! When I heard Owlcrate was doing a special edition box for the release of Finale by Stephanie Garber, I was all in.  I made sure I was on at the exact time that they went on sale to grab one, so I’m happy to say I got one and it’s here! This box was actually curated with the help of Stephanie Garber herself, so that makes it a little extra special I think! Alright, let’s see what is in this baby!

January 2019 OWLCRATE Unboxing – SPOILERS

OC

Head’s up I didn’t love this box, I liked it.  I’m very honest with my review of the items and may have thrown a little shade in a couple places.  However, if you loved all the items than that is wonderful, that makes me happy.  If I don’t like something that you love, please remember it’s not a personal attack.  Just a difference of opinion.

Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi Exclusive Signed OC Edition – I’ve read this and loved it.  You can check out my non-spoiler review HERE  – The actual difference in the editions is very slight.  The decorative part is silver instead of gold and the flowers are blue instead of purple.  I think it looks beautiful.

 

Gilded Wolves Enamel Pin – OC has officially switched from the little buttons the give monthly to higher quality exclusive enamel pins.  I like the change a lot.  This one goes with Gilded Wolves and it looks beautiful.

Lord of the Rings Letter Opener – If I’m going to be honest, I hate this item.  I have a weird quirk about unfinished wood.  I HATEEE the feel of it – it freaks me right out.  I will pass this along to someone who can actually take it out of the package and use it (STOP JUDGING ME LOL).

Golden Compass Wall Hanging – Another item that I don’t like at all.  I have never read the book but I really want to.  I was actually excited for this item but it looks like something that should’ve went into OC Jr – it’s just not something that I’d hang anywhere as an adult and if I’m going to get a little savage here – the illustration of the polar bear looks like a bad stock image – just saying…

Grishaverse Bracelet – This is very pretty, it’s supposed to be antlers but it looks very much like branches.  It goes REALLY well with the acorn necklace from The Wicked King limited box they did.

Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Socks – These are cute and they are nice and cozy warmer ones which I like.  I do have health issues and my feet swell because of it (TMI, I know – you’re welcome!), so hopefully these will fit nice.

Darker Shade of Magic Pouch – This is stunning.  It has a different quote on both sides and I really like the material.  It’s a canvas material but super soft, not that scratchy junk.  My only issue with this is – HOW MANY POUCHES DO WE NEED OWLCRATE? Like have you run out of ideas, so you just panic and say “Give them a pouch, yes a pouch will do.  Everyone loves a pouch!”  No! Chill out with these, we’ve gotten like four at least in the last year.

Overall, I liked most of the items but nothing blew me out of the water (book excluded).  It was kind of a meh box for me.   If they are starting to give us enamel pins then why haven’t they given us anything to display them on? They should’ve given us one forever ago for all the buttons they sent.  I guess they are too busy ordering pouches…. *side eye*
