Bookmas Day 6

Hello lovelies. How are you? All throughout the rest of December I will be participating in Bookmas. Bookmas was created by Hailey at Hailey in Bookland. It is essentially a blogathon or videoathon for the 24 days leading up to Christmas Eve. There are 24 challenges or prompts that we post each day leading up to Christmas Eve. Each challenge or prompt has something to do with the end of the end or the start of a new year. I have always wanted to do Bookmas and now I am so excited to be a part of it. So without further or due let’s get into Bookmas.

November OwlCrate Unboxing

Hello lovelies. How are you? Today’s blog post is all about this month’s OwlCrate unboxing. This month’s OwlCrate’s theme is Rise from the Ashes. Please leave me a comment down below letting me know what your favourite item was in this month’s box. Hope you have a great day. 

The first thing I see in this month’s box is the spoiler card. This is so epic and gorgeous. I love the colours that they used this month.

Next is a stunning pillowcase. The quote says “as long as there is life, there is hope.” This is a quote from An Ember in the Ashes. This item was created and designed by Evie Bookish. I am in love with the vibrancy of this pillowcase. 

Another item that ew get in this month’s OwlCrate box is beautiful skull planter. This item was exclusively designed and created by OwlCrate. I can’t wait to put a cactus in this and display it on my bookshelves. 

Next is this wax seal kit. I have always wanted a wax seal kit so I am so pumped for this item. This was designed by Michelle Gray and created by OwlCrate. The actual seal has a book own it, which I am obsessed with.

Another item is this craft kit. It is called wishing bracelets. Essentially you write your secret wishes, hopes and dreams on the paper beads. Whenever you need a little pick me up you unravel the bead and it appears for you to remind yourself. I think this is such a cool and unique item and I can’t wait to make this.

We have the monthly pin here. I love collecting these every month.

Next is this gorgeous sticker from Susanne Draws. This sticker features Dumbledore and Fawkes. I can’t wait to pit this up on my bookish prints wall. 

This month’s book is Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan. Every year eight girls throughout the land  of Ikhara are chosen as Paper Girls. To serve the Demon King as his concubines. Tradition is disturbed when our main character Lei is kidnapped from her village and is forced to serve as the ninth Paper Girl. We follow the nine Paper Girls as they struggle to survive the palace. Then Lei does the unthinkable- she falls in love. This book does have an exclusive cover and is signed by the author. This also comes with a letter from the author and an exclusive sticker decal. I am so excited for this book. It sounds amazing.

Next in the box we have our monthly panphlet. This includes an interview with the author and Susanne Draws. Also a work search and a sneak peek of whats inside next month’s box. 

Next month’s theme is Power of Illusions and every box will include  an exclusive item from Ink and Wonder Designs.
