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 […]

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 […]

Sorcerer’s Spells:  A Flick the Wick Unboxing (SPOILERS!)

Sorcerer’s Spells: A Flick the Wick Unboxing (SPOILERS!)

Good morning my beautiful monsters! I have another new-to-me crate you’ve never seen on this blog before! *gasp*  This isn’t a new box, Flick the Wick has been doing a monthly box for a little while now, but this is the first time I’ve tried it.  They’re a candle company first, and their candles are often included in the big book boxes.  For example, the Lunar Queen candle in December 2018’s OwlCrate was awesome – I’ve been following them ever since. Their June box hooked me with a promise of Harry Potter, so I decided to climb aboard.  I’ve generally had […]

June MLC Co. Unboxing // Dystopian Dysfunction // SPOILERS!

June MLC Co. Unboxing // Dystopian Dysfunction // SPOILERS!

Back in May, I decided to treat myself to MLC Co.’s Candle Crate because I’d seen a shining review on NovelKnight’s instagram and wanted to check it out for myself.  For those of you who saw that post, you already know that I was really impressed by the little subscription box.  The candles smelled amazing, the pin was fantastic, and the price was very reasonable for everything included.  Altogether, it was a good mixture of items and easy to recommend. Starting in June, MLC Co. added a book to their box.  Here’s what I really like about this: They’re including […]

Alchemy & Ink Summer Unboxing // The Darkness Within // SPOILERS!

Alchemy & Ink Summer Unboxing // The Darkness Within // SPOILERS!

If y’all haven’t heard of Alchemy & Ink, then you should know that their quarterly box is not an easy triumph.  I bought their winter box and absolutely loved it (seriously – I use the blanket from that box every day… or at least my cats do).  When I decided to buy their July box, I was armed and ready for it… and the box sold out in four minutes. No exaggeration – four minutes. The box you see here is actually a second run – after she sold out so fast, Natalie decided to do a second restock, but the […]

Gillywick Goods “Spring Reads” Unboxing  //  SPOILERS!

Gillywick Goods “Spring Reads” Unboxing // SPOILERS!

Last year, I ordered a few different holiday crates from Gillywick Goods, starting with their Honeydukes crate last October.  I really liked those crates and I figured while I was supporting less celebrated crates like MLC Co. and Nerdy Post, I wanted to order another of Hailey’s boxes so I could share it with you. Like MLC Co., Gillywick Goods is primarily a candle maker.  She does a few different kinds of boxes – all candle-centric, but different themes.  The ones I’ve gotten in the past have had specific themes – the Honeydukes box was a Harry Potter Halloween box, […]
