Since ordering and receiving my past OwlCrate box, I have been following them on social media, and was very jealous looking at all the posts of the boxes coming out. Last week, they had a big sale on all their past boxes, and I had to get one. I picked the April box with the theme "Head over Heels" from April because the book looked great and it featured many items based off my favorite books. Here is my unboxing experience; enjoy!
Here is everything that came in the box this time around; I was very impressed at the range and amount of products, it seemed like a lot for my money's worth! As always, OwlCrate does a perfect job of including and supporting small businesses and artists, and I was not disappointed.
The art for the month's card was beautiful; I absolutely loved how it featured the bookstore with the little "OwlCrate" section, showing off some of the books from previous boxes.
The first item my eyes were drawn to when opening the box was this candle. I had heard it was based off of Rainbow Rowell novels, but there were 3 possibilities that could've ended up in the box. I was very happy to see I had Baz and Simon, as I have just recently read Carry On (an amazing novel). Plus, I love the smell of raspberries and this smells like raspberry candy.
I was very excited to see an article of clothing in this month's box! I pulled out this headband and you can immediately tell that it was handmade. The fabric was also super soft and stretchy, plus it has words from Pride & Prejudice on it, which is one of my favorite classics.
This chocolate cherry bomb tea is based off of Stephanie Perkin's Anna and the French Kiss, one of the classic contemporary novels of today. I am a big fan of her novels and I can tell I will be a very big fan of this tea, chocolate cherry sounds delicious!
A gorgeous art print featuring a quote from A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Mass is going to find it's rightful place on my bookshelf somewhere once I get a frame. This series has been on my must-read for a while, and I plan on getting to it this summer. The quote itself is beautiful and I love the simple color and design of the print.
Another book that has been on my must-read for a while, Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda is actually being turned into a film in early 2018. This small keychain from Bookworm Boutique is super cute and is going to look great attached to a bag or a set of keys.
The last thing in the box was the book of the month, in this case The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli. I have heard many great things about this book and author in general, and I cannot wait to read this novel. The book follows Molly Peskin and her love life, with constant unsuccessful crushes. That is, until, she meets a guy or two that might change her confidence. I can already tell that it is going to be a fun-read, and I'm excited to get to it. The book also came with a note from the author, a signed bookplate, and a sticker!
That is all that was featured in this year's April OwlCrate Box. I was very surprised with the large amount and range of items featured in the box, and how different each item was to what I received in December. OwlCrate will definitely be seeing more purchases in the future from me. If you would like to purchase this box or others, click here. I hope you have a fantastic week!
