Owlcrate March 2018 Unboxing

This Across the Galaxthemed Owlcrate was absolutel out of this world! (see what I did there! okay awkward jokes over) But seriously this box featured some amazing items, and inspired me to read The Illuminae Files, which I absolutely loved. So before I keep gushing, let’s get down to what was in this box. There is also an unboxing video that you can find down below!

  1. A candle by “Wick and Fable”, there were two different scents sent out, and I received Kady Grant, which has an orange sent to it
  2. Guardians of the Galaxy Funko Pop was sent out and multiple ones were sent of this as well. I received Yondu!
  3. If you don’t have a bookmark by Lexy Olivia you are missing out. You can find her Etsy shop here    This bookmark features the most renowned quote from the Star Wars saga
  4. We also received a gorgeous purple galaxy print infinity scarf that was made by Owlcrate. This has to be one of my favorite items
  5. Finally we received a mug with a quote from the Lunar Chronicles designed by Sasha Natasha

Can we talk about the book for a second?! The book is stained with PURPLE PAGES!! You have no idea how excited I was to see  Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston, with this already amazing cover have stained pages as well. They look absolutely phenomenal.

You can find up close pictures of these items on my Instagram page as well as see them in my unboxing video! I hope you enjoyed this box as much as I did! What was your favorite item, I can’t wait to hear them. Until next time,

Is booktube and book blogging stressful?!

There has been a lot of videos going around about people being stressed doing something that they love. Does that really mean that you should be doing it?? There is never a reason to be stressed doing something that makes you happy. Take the time out to rest and enjoy your family and try and see what is making it stressful, can you avoid it and continue to be happy? Here are my thoughts, and I want to hear yours!! Until next time,

The CandleLit Box Unboxing!

I was so excited to receive this box in the mail!! It is a brand new book subscription box that the creator sent to me. Of course I’m going to give you my complete honest opinion.

You can watch my full unboxing video below, but I will give  you some highlights here, and let you know what it is about.

Basically The CandleLit Box is a book subscription box that caters to the whole experience of reading. It is a box that wants you to be comfortable and feel good when reading the book that is included. It also features books by black and brown authors, which is what also makes it amazing because of its commitment to deliver books by diverse authors.  I would definitely check out their website here and reclaim your time!

Until next time,

Once and For All, Sarah Dessen

– Short Story – 

Weddings are supposed to be the most beautiful and memorable day of your relationship. For Louna, it’s just another day, another wedding, and another client that she has to help her mom deal with. It should be a flawless day of wedding and reception with all attention on the bride, but that doesn’t happen by itself, someone has to make the magic happen. The lure of love has been wasted on Louna with her mom, Natalie, and her mom’s best friend and coworker William, always betting on how long the happy couple will stay together after the wedding. That is until she meets someone at a wedding, which breaks all types of her own rules, and finally understands what love feels like. Unfortunately for them they live long distance, and don’t get to see each other after this fated night at a beach wedding. Until the unimaginable happens, and she is left feeling a heart break no one should ever have to feel, and she is stuck with Ambrose, whom her mom hired, who might possibly be the most positive guy in Colby, if not the world. Louna is trying to keep going and to fill the void with whatever work her mom has her do for the summer.

– What I Think – 

Sarah Dessen always manages to find a way to make you believe in love. During Once and For All I remembered what it was like to have that first love. The one that you believed would be forever only for something to happen to it that ruins the relationship, and the notion of love. To be wrapped in the feelings that love would never find you again until all of a sudden the unexpected happens, and there is someone right in front of you. There is a sameness to this novel from the others of hers, but I still enjoyed it nonetheless. If you are a Sarah Dessen fan then you will not be disappointed. She still makes you want to look for a love that can last. Definitely pick this one up, until next time.
