October 2018 Owlcrate

Alibris: Books, Music, & Movies

100th.pngHello and happy Wednesday. This is going to be a bit of an anticlimactic Owlcrate unboxing because I forgot to take a picture of the items as soon as I got the box. Is this self-sabotage? Maybe. Let’s get started, shall we?

Choco Mint Truffle Tea from The Tea Spot 

I’ve had this tea twice already and I really like it. Tea is my hot beverage of preference, so I was happy to get this in my Owlcrate. Plus, you all know how much I love the combination of chocolate and mint. It’s like coziness in a mug.

Tea Strainer by Owlcrate Team and Michelle Gray 

I had gotten loose tea leafs in the past and they had pretty much gone to waste because I didn’t have a strainer. I think Owlcrate picked up on the fact that maybe this happened to other people, and they decided to include one in their boxes so that everyone could fully enjoy the products in the box. Besides the strainer itself being cute, I think this was a smart move from the Owlcrate team and a step towards curating more products that are useful for everyone.

Book Nerd Socks by Out of Print and Underlined 

Nights in Bogota have been super cold lately, so guess what I’ve been wearing to sleep. Again, everybody wears socks, even if not in a fashionable style, and nowadays we all know someone who likes to wear socks with cool designs in them, so either you have something great and cozy for cold days and nights, or you have a fashion item you or someone else can appreciate.

Canvas Clutch Purse from Bookworm Boutique 

Okay, this is not just any clutch purse; this is a book pocket and I’m living for it. I’m using it to store my Kindle and the notebook where I write down drafts for book studies, along with a pen. I think it’s adorable and super convenient and something you won’t think you needed until you have it and realize that your life was incomplete before.

Art Print by Michelle Gray 

I linked her before, don’t worry. If I know what the art print is about because I’ve read the book it was inspired by, then I’ll for sure use it to decorate the outside (or the inside) of a notebook and give it a bit more life and magic. That’s what I did with the cutie I got in my Owlcrate.

Pride by Ibi Zoboi and Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa 

In the month of October we got two books instead of one, and honestly, how could I be mad about that? You know I like going into books blindly, but I’ll tell you what I see: one, I see diverse authors, which I think is awesome. Two, I see that Pride might be a retelling of Pride and Prejudice, a classic I have yet to read.

As you can see, I was very happy about the contents of this Owlcrate, which also included the monthly pin. I want you to tell me the item you would’ve liked to receive and why.

Happy reading!

Love, Miss Camila
