I have a little announcement before I move onto the topic of this, indeed, interesting post. Don’t worry, it’s not the breaking news of me leaving the blogging world – no, gosh, no way I will abandon what I love so much even if I feel tired!
Well, to put simply – I’m going on another travel at the end of this week. Again, yes. No, it won’t take long, but I definitely won’t be able to post my weekly digest, and I will try my best to schedule something for Saturday, if I come up with a content worth sharing right now. You can still find me on other platforms like instagram and twitter (yep, feel free to spam me there lol), but I won’t be able to answer the comments here for 3 days or so.
So that’s all for the announcement, now let’s move onto the blog post of today!
So at the end of April I received my first ever subscription box, and I’m absolutely glad that I picked Fairyloot to be that first box! Since it’s long past spoiler time, how about I share with you the contents of the April box?
The theme was Dreams and Wishes! Let’s start from the full picture of the contents of April box!
It was so thrilling opening the box and taking out one item after another! I could finally understand that hype from other bookstagrammers when they did their unboxings on instagram stories! My hands were trembling when I did mine!
The book of April’s box was Given to the Sea by Mindy McGinnis, you can search it up on Goodreads to see the synopsis and some ratings/reviews. I personally haven’t read reviews yet, because, to be honest, this book is set loooong down my TBR list, so I’m not sure when I’ll get to read this one.
The book came with a letter from author and a signed book plate!
Next item in the box is a wonderful ceramic mug with ACOMAF quote made by Risa Rodil, and it’s absolutely FAE-bulous! I don’t even dare to drink from this mug for now, so currently I use it to contain some of my bookmarks 🙂
Now moving onto the next stuff, which I will combine in one paragraph since I didn’t take separate pictures for those items.
First is the awesomest ever candle from Heather at Meraki candles (seriously, if you’re considering getting bookish candles, go straight to Heather’s shop, it’s MARVELLOUS;
Heather is currently on a break, but she’ll come back soon) called Reverie, and it smells mint, marshmallows and candy floss. Now how sweet is it? I usually don’t like overly sweet smells, and the mint element here just does the right thing to freshen the sweetness of marshmallow and candy floss. One of my absolute favorite candle from Heather (and, tbh, I don’t own many yet lol)
Next is the magnet provided exclusively by Fairyloot itself, with an image of a dreamcatcher, surrounded by feathers and semi-precious stones, and decorated with a quote: <Follow your dreams, they know the way>. Now how lovely is that? ❤
Then we have a gemstone notebook by Portico Designs, with 12 different gemstone designs sorted into boxes by random! I got an emerald one, and it look fabulous! And, of course, there comes the ultimate concern of every stationery addict like myself – what to do with it? I don’t wanna write on that beauty whatsoever!
And lastly, we have a wonderful tote bag provided by Miss Phi, with a quote from The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon: <Madness is a matter of perspective, little dreamer> I need to read this book series asap!
Also the box included some cards featuring Hunted by Meagan Spooner, which was Fairyloot’s March box book, and Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer, as well as a spoiler card for April’s box and a themed bookmark!
So that’s it! The unboxing of my first ever subscription box! I will definitely try buying other boxes in the future, but since it’s pretty pricey in terms of shipping, I won’t be able to buy them that regularly, so I will closely follow the news on next months’ themes to decide which other boxes to try. Specifically I’d like to try Owlcrate!
Are you subscribed to any bookish boxes? Maybe there are some book boxes you always wanted to try?
