Dawn of a New World:  An October 2019 OwlCrate Unboxing

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 […]

Bookish Candlemakers:  Gillywick Goods

Bookish Candlemakers: Gillywick Goods

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!

High Stakes: A September Illumicrate Unboxing // SPOILERS!

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 […]

Journey to Middle Earth: An August 2019 Flick the Wick Unboxing!

Journey to Middle Earth: An August 2019 Flick the Wick Unboxing!

Good morning everyone and welcome to my second Flick the Wick unboxing!  As you may remember, I purchased their June box and was completely overwhelmed by how much I loved it.  Smaller boxes can be pretty hit-or-miss, so I never know what I’m getting into… but I feel safe saying that if you like candles, Flick the Wick is a great bet! So, the monthly box itself is not a subscription box.  These are one-off boxes without auto-renewing that you can go into monthly and say, “hey, I like that theme!” and buy it.  Prices range between $35 and $45 for the monthly […]

Armed & Dangerous: An August 2019 Illumicrate Unboxing

Armed & Dangerous: An August 2019 Illumicrate Unboxing

Good mourningly beautiful monsters!  I hope everyone is having a marvelous day!  Today I’m going to be sharing an unboxing of Illumicrate’s August box.  This month, the theme was Armed & Dangerous.  The general vibe for this seemed to be half weapons, and half dangerous characters?  It’s a bit of a loose theme, as you’ll see when we get to the items, but “armed and dangerous” has a general… fighterly feel?  You’ll see! Now for the technical details! This post is in no way sponsored.  I have a six-month Illumicrate subscription and I just choose to share these unboxing here on […]
