Writing a Great Hook:  August’s Scribbler Unboxing (SPOILERS!)

Writing a Great Hook: August’s Scribbler Unboxing (SPOILERS!)

Posted September 25, 2020 in Bookish Things, Unboxings // 0 Comments

Good morning everyone! I decided to splurge for another month and picked up August’s Scribbler box!  As you know from my past unboxings, this is a sort of unique box in that it’s not intended to push a sensational new release.  Scribbler is more a care package for writers and each month focuses on a specific theme or skill and elaborates ways to master it, and provides opportunities to connect.  For readers who are aspiring writers, this is an interesting box and every six months or so, it lures me back in. This month’s Scribbler theme was “hook”. In writing, […]

Good morning everyone! It’s been a little while since I’ve done an unboxing, but Scribbler incited me with the promise of three books.  Who can say no to a book box that you know you generally like… that is claiming to have three books!?  I have a weakness for multiple books. For those unfamiliar, Scribbler is a book box for writers.  The books included in this box are always chosen around a particular theme and intended to give the subscriber an example of a very successful execution of that theme.  Plus, usually, when there are extra books, it’s usually because they […]

Dawn of a New World: An October 2019 OwlCrate Unboxing

Here is is, my loves. My very last OwlCrate unboxing. It’s been a long, seven month journey. Before I talk about the box, I want to tell you that my decision to cancel this box is in no way related to its quality or value.  As far as book boxes go, OwlCrate is tops and I wholeheartedly recommend it every time.  I simply have reached a point in my life where I want to pare down on subscription boxes and bookish swag.  If there is a box I do come back and order from time to time, you better believe it […]

I have a bit of a weakness for bookish candles.  In fact, I have a bit of a weakness for anything that combines (somewhat) useful or interesting items with pop culture at all, especially if they’re coming from small businesses.  As a result of this, I’ve tried a lot of bookish candle companies.  You’ll hear a little about them on Instagram from their various reps and influencers… but I wanted to do something a little different. I want to bring you guys reviews of the bookish candle companies I have tried, and my experience with the candles themselves.  I am not being […]

High Stakes: A September Illumicrate Unboxing // SPOILERS!

Posted October 14, 2019 in Unboxings // 0 Comments

This is my very last Illumicrate on my current subscription plan!  I’ve been coming with you pretty consistently with Illumicrate unboxing because I bought a six-month subscription right before we moved up here, because I love getting monthly surprises in the mail.  I had a couple good experiences with Illumicrate when they were a quarterly box, so this was a monthly subscription I was really looking forward to digging into.  I’ll go into a little more depth on the six-box experience at the end to give you my full take away! For this month, Illumicrate’s theme was high stakes.  The promised […]
