I have always wanted Funko to come out with I Love Lucy figures. As soon as I saw them I pre-ordered them immediently. I love how they came out with an original Lucy with her signature polkadot dress, Ricky on the bongos and a Lucy with her chocolate factory episode dress. 

I Love Lucy Book Sleeve

I wanted to get another book sleeve this month Because I didn’t want to keep changing my only book sleeve out all the time. So I went on Etsy and I came across this beautiful I Love Lucy one and I just had to get it. The shop is called Always September Shop. I love this book sleeve and will absolutely be purchasing more book sleeves from this shop in the near future. 

 Starbucks Pink Drink

This drink makes me extremely happy. I am sure you have seen this drinks around. It is Summer in a cup. I will drink this all year round. Now to get this pink drink you order a strawberry acai refresher with coconut milk and it originally comes with strawberry pieces in it, however I get mine without. Please go and try it you will not regret it. 

The Next Five People You Meet in Heaven

I have been anticipating this sequel release for a year. This book is everything I could ask for. It melted my heart. Highly recommend this book and the duology. 

American Horror Story 

Ecran_Titre_d'American_Horror_Story

I am in love with this season of American Horror Story. This season is a crossover of Murder House (season 1) and Coven (Season 3) called Apocalypse. The same characters of season 1 and 3 are ion this season as well as some new characters. You absolutely need to watch season 1 and 3 before you watch this season. The show is creepy, beautiful and the acting is phenomenal. Highly recommend.

October 2018 OwlCrate Unboxing

Hello lovelies. How are you?Today’s blog post is all about my October OwlCrate unboxing. This month’s theme was “Lost in a Bookstore”. Please leave me a comment down below letting me now what was your favourite item in this month’s box. Hope you have a great day. 

The first thing I see in this box is the spoiler card. This is probably one of my favourites that OwlCrate was ever came out with. I love how the girl is having tea and reading a book named “Little Witches”. I love the aesthetic of this card. I am not going to be looking at the back of this card because I don’t want to spoil myself. 

The next item I see in this box is a pair of book nerd socks. These socks were designed by Out of Print and Underlined. I love socks especially bookish ones. These are so cute.

Another item in this box is a choco mint truffle flavoured tea from The Tea Spot. I am not a tea drinker, however my best friend is so I will absolutely be gifting this to her.  I love the illustrations on this label.

Next is a tea strainer. Team OwlCrate created this silicone heart shaped strainer and Michelle Grey designed it. 

A canvas clutch purse is up next in this box. This was designed and created exclusively from Bookworm Boutique.  It reads on the back “books are a uniquely portable magic”. This pouch is gorgeous.

The final item is this month’s box is the pin that they always have that corresponds with the spoiler card. 

In this month’s box we get the honour of hitting two hardcover exclusive cover signed books. 

The first book is a Pride and Prejudice retelling called Pride by Ibi Zoboi. This is about a girl named Zuri who loves where she is from. However, lately she is feeling the the ramifications of renovating the houses on her neighbourhood. When a wealthy family moves next door, Zuri wants nothing to do with their two sons. Soon after Zuri’s older sister starts falling in love with one of them and initial judgments begin to shift. This is an OwlCrate exclusive cover. On the original cover the Title Pride is in blue. It is also signed, comes with a letter from the author and a bookmark. I love the naked spine and the endpapers. 

The next book is a fantasy novel called Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kawagawa. At the end of the millennium, whoever holds the scroll will be granted one wish from the great Kami Dragon. When a demon destroys a shapeshifter named Yumeko’s home as well has everyone she knows. She escapes with a piece of the scroll and embarks on a quest to find the missing pieces.  Fate, brings her into the path of Tatsumi, a demon slaying shadow warrior who’s only mission is to find the scroll and to kill anyone who stands in his path. This is an OwlCrate exclusive cover. ON the original cover the background is black and the silhouette of the forrest is red. It is also signed, comes with a letter from the author and a bookmark.
