Hello and happy Wednesday. This is what happens when you plan to write a post way in advance: you end up forgetting everything you had gotten by the time you actually get to sit down and write. Luckily, I saved the card we get that says all the goodies I got inside my Owlcrate for the month of December 2018. The theme for that month was “power of illusions,” and you know I love me some magic tricks.
Do you see that cute little candle right there? I love the lavender color, but I especially love its scent. As you might know by now, I don’t light candles in my room, but my mom and my sister do, so this cutie from Flick the Wick made my sister’s room smell like a dream. Honestly, every time I went inside, I had to take the unlit candle and give it a sniff. I wish there were a perfume that smelled like that, I’d totally wear that.
Because it was the December box, we got an ornament from Juniper and Ivy Designs. Now, in my house, we no longer decorate the house for Christmas, but I have my wooden ornament from this box, as well as the one we got in 2017 with the Everything Everything quote hanging from my corkboard. And yes, when I get my place and decorate for Christmas, these will for sure be my ornaments.
I got a magnet from Ink and Wonder Designs, which is now accompanied by three other magnets that I’ve gotten from Owl Crate. I love how these boxes have led me to have collections of cute stuff all over.
Judging by the stuff I’ve hauled and what’s still left for me to talk about, I can surely say that this box went above and beyond. The next item I got was a tote bag from Stella Bookish Art. Now I believe that this is the third tote back I’ve gotten from Owl Crate, and I love using these instead of plastic bags. I will have to go through all my tote bags and maybe get rid of some because I have too many by now.
The next item is one I use every single day, and it’s the magical monthly reading planner. I believe that the improvements made from the planner they sent out the previous year to this one were spot on. I love my planner with the passion of one thousand burning suns, and I even made a post about how I use it. This was made in collaboration with Blue Star Press.
This is not listed in the spoiler card, but I’m sure you can see it in the thumbnail. It is a sneak peek of King of Fools by Amanda Foody. I don’t know what this book is about, but I will read what I was sent and let you know what I thought about it.
Finally, we have the book, Amber & Dusk by Lyra Selene. This book was actually signed by the author, which is even cooler than getting a signed bookplate. Additionally, we have an exclusive Owl Crate cover. I don’t know anything about it, so you’ll have to wait for my review once I’ve read it. With the book, we got a necklace and you know that I’m a total sucker for jewelry.
What is one thing you’d like to get in an Owl Crate, and one you can totally do without? Let me know in the comments.
Love, Miss Camila
