Hello and happy Wednesday. Today I bring you not one but three OwlCrate unboxings. Yes, that’s what happens when you live in Colombia. You get three months worth of OwlCrates over the course of two weeks. Get something to eat, maybe a tall glass of water too because this post is massive. Let’s see all the goodies, shall we?
Let’s begin with the box for the month of May, themed “Comic Explosion.” Now, I was honestly kind of skeptical because I’m not really a fan of comic books or anything comic-related, I’m just getting into Marvel shows and movies. The twist OwlCrate gave to the whole comics theme was fantastic, and I think it made the box enjoyable for everyone.
Let’s begin with the Loki Pop! Funko because I mean, isn’t it adorable? I took this one to school because this year I’m trying something new behavior management-wise with my older boys. I’ll write a post on my whole behavior management system soon (I promise).
Then there’s the cutest Wonder Woman candle from Dio Candle Company. My mom lit it until there was nothing because she was in love with the tropical scent.
I thought I wasn’t going to like the next item, which is a bag of coffee candy from Kafe Candy, and I ended up basically eating every piece. Sorry not sorry.
The gorgeous art print drawn by Francesca Zappia, who is also the author of Eliza and Her Monsters, OwlCrate’s book for May, is now decorating my Portuguese notebook, and I smile every time I see it. The book itself was on my wish list, and I love it when I get books I’d been meaning to buy because I feel like I’m saving money, so good job in that front OwlCrate. Keep it up!
There’s also a sneak peek of Afar, which is a graphic novel from Leila del Duca and Kit Seaton. I’ll do a proper review on it as soon as I finish reading it.
Finally, we have the cute multi-colored pen from Ooly, and that’s something else I have at school and use every day because it’s just so practical.
Okay, let’s close our eyes, count to ten and continue with the June OwlCrate, themed “Make It Out Alive.”
This month I got two books: The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson and New World
Rising by Jennifer Wilson. Now, I think both books are dystopian, which I am excited about because I feel like I haven’t read a dystopian novel in the longest while.
Between both books we have a patch created exclusively for OwlCrate by Laserbrain Patch Co. This patch is inspired on The Giver by Lois Lowry, which I have yet to read, and is now in my “rewards box” at school because I think it’s very cute and one of my students might enjoy having it at home.
There are some stickers that came with The Sandcastle Empire, and those are now in my stickers book. The magnet from LittleInklingsDesign is now on my whiteboard in my bedroom because I think the quote is very powerful and I like to keep it somewhere visible. The bookmark from Hey Atlas Creative has found its home among its fellow bookmark friends in my collection.
The remaining items, which are a thingy to cover your eyes (I don’t know its name in English, and I’m pretty sure it doesn’t even have one in Spanish) and a bath bomb from Fizzy Fairy Apothecary are going to my best friend because I use neither.
Let’s all take a sip of water and move on to July’s box, themed “Wanderlust”. I literally
used the bag the day after I got it. I love bags like that one and I think they’re super useful. It is now my designated Zumba bag.
Then there’s a mirror designed by Miss Phi, and it now travels with me in my backpack because a pocket mirror is a must for me.
I got a Pop! Funko keychain of Newt Scamander, and I adore it so much, it’s part of my keychain collection that goes everywhere with me.
This is the second time I get a bag tag in a subscription box and I think that’s genius because I wouldn’t buy myself one. The one I got in July’s OwlCrate is from Mudpuppy and it’s so darn cute.
There’s this art print with a quote that everybody knows because of Looking For Alaska. I’d seen it around but I haven’t read the book or know the original author of it, but still I fell in love with the print itself by Shailey Ann Design. It is now in my cork board surrounded by two of my favorite poems.
This box also contains an item by Ooly, which is this tiny notebook with lined paper, perfect to carry around.
The map and the card come with July’s book, The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee. I’d wanted to get this book since I first started hearing everyone talk about it, and as soon as I found out what the theme was, I knew I was getting it. The map is going to my best friend as well because she’s actually traveled to Europe. I put a post-it on “man” and changed it to “gentlelady.”
And we’re done! In the comments tell me out of all the items I got, which was your favorite and why? This will be my last OwlCrate unboxing in a while because I’ve gone back to money-saving mode, but I have a ton of reviews and fun posts to you.
Love, Miss Camila
