Owlcrate August 2019 unboxing
Here is another unboxing from Owlcrate. As always I get so excited when I see that Owlcrate box waiting for me. This was a cute box and has a lot of cute goodies. So let’s get right into it.
I do love self care products, here we have bath salts from The Soap Librarian. These are inspired by The Little Mermaid. I no longer have a bath, so I will be handing this off to someone who does or finding a different use for it. Tea is something I love, I don’t love Earl Grey though. I might give this one a go, since I do love Riddle’s Tea Shoppe. In past boxes where their teas have been included in I have love, but those had been herbal.
Now this wooden bookmark is gorgeous from Juniper and Ivy Designs. I have loved the designs that they have included before and this is no exception. I love a bookmark and this is a welcomed addition to my collection. Also how awesome is this pencil case designed by Stella Bookish art. I love annotating review books and I carry a loads of pencils, pens and markers, plus my flags and a little ruler for underlining. I have been wanting to cut down on what I carry and this has come at the right time. It is the perfect size and holds my flag markers, little ruler and a few writing utensils. I just love it and has made what I carry that bit lighter. Definitely one goodie that I will be using for a long time.
You can count on Owlcrate to include some interesting and different items. For this box, this little tea candle lantern holder is super cute and one that will be making a feature is some instagram photos.
The book included is House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig. Right off the bat I a OBSESSED with this cover. I’ve seen this circling around and thought it was interesting, but with the exclusive Owlcrate cover it just brings it to a whole new level. I also feels like it is truer to the feel of the book.
In a manor by the sea, twelve sisters are cursed.
Annaleigh lives a sheltered life at Highmoor, a manor by the sea, with her sisters, their father, and stepmother. Once they were twelve, but loneliness fills the grand halls now that four of the girls’ lives have been cut short. Each death was more tragic than the last—the plague, a plummeting fall, a drowning, a slippery plunge—and there are whispers throughout the surrounding villages that the family is cursed by the gods.
Disturbed by a series of ghostly visions, Annaleigh becomes increasingly suspicious that the deaths were no accidents. Her sisters have been sneaking out every night to attend glittering balls, dancing until dawn in silk gowns and shimmering slippers, and Annaleigh isn’t sure whether to try to stop them or to join their forbidden trysts. Because who—or what—are they really dancing with?
When Annaleigh’s involvement with a mysterious stranger who has secrets of his own intensifies, it’s a race to unravel the darkness that has fallen over her family—before it claims her next.
What do you think of the August box?
