Unboxing: The Fable & Black Lucky Dip Box

This last month or so, I decided to treat myself to a little etsy sprawl! I’ve also never received anything from the site before and thought it would be nice to document the experience a little!

So, one of the first things I decided to treat myself to – that wasn’t bookmarks – was the Fable & Black lucky dip box, and at £10 (plus an extra 15p for shipping because of the insta coupon I found online) I couldn’t say no! (Baring in mind, it’s a UK company, so International shipping would probably be a tad different)

I’ve also never had anything from the fable & black store before, so I never had to worry about getting any sort of doubles! But, the next time I order one (cause I definitely will), there’s actually a space to tell them what you already have so doubles never happen!

A big bonus about this box is that it’s also small enough to fit through your letter box!

The items I got were:

x3 William Shakespeare Quote Bookmarks

x1 ‘Night Court’ Badge

x1 ‘I LOVE YA’ Keyring

x1 ‘Fight Evil, Read Books’ Coaster

x1 ‘Potion Making’ Notebook

x1 ‘Beware For I Am Fearless And Therefore Powerful’ Print

x2 Fable & Black Mini Prints

Here are a few close-ups!

Everything included was great quality! The bookmarks and prints were on good quality paper/card and the coaster looks as if it could hold it’s own in a busy house-hold of mug users!

And the notebook has a surprisingly good number of pages too! It isn’t lined paper, but the sketcher in me (😂) could use it if I pleased, or I could just have some wonky lined writing!

The only problem (I’m being nitpicky now) that I had with the box – and it was more because I didn’t like the fandom that was included (maybe didn’t like is too strong a word??) was that I got a ACOTAR Night Court badge!

It is beautiful though, and, if I didn’t know the fandom already, I would just think that it was a really pretty badge!

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this little review, and, if you enjoy bookish items, but can never decide which items you want, then this box is definitely for you!

Do you treat yourself to anything bookish? Or are you just a book buyer?

Until then though guys,

Unboxing: BookBoxClubs Into Dystopia

So, I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited for a box as I was for this one since I started receiving my Book Box Club boxes back in May 2017!

With fandoms like the hunger games, divergent and the handmaids tale used to make this box that much bookishly better, perhaps excited is an understatement!

Inside, I got:

Scrolled Invitation to the clubhouse meeting to chat about the featured book! Plus a mini interview with the author and her inspirations

Supplies to Stay Alive Pad by Bread & Jam which has a magnet on the back so you can stick it to your fridge!

Emergency Zesty Chocolate Orange Bar by Gnaw, which was eaten within an hour or so of opening the box – I needed chocolate and that’s an emergency

Handmaids Tale Cuff by Beautifully Bookish! Although a bit small for my wrist (I have fat hands, what can I say), this cuff is absolutely gorgeous, and is a BBC exclusive!

Arrow Pen by Book Box Club inspired by the Hunger Games! I can just imagine taking this in to an exam or test, and looking to the quote on it and laughing at myself!

Dauntless Tea by Craft Tea Company! I don’t like tea at all, but it’s still pretty – and I’m gonna make my dad try it!

Outwalkers by Fiona Shaw, whose first chapter reminds me of the game Little Nightmares a bit!

Goodreads Summary:
Set in an England in the near future, Outwalkers follows a gang of kids and their perilous journey to make it through a country where the government is tracking everyone and their every move is analyzed and controlled. They must live on their wits, and must work together to survive and escape

And, lastly, book promo from BBC’s publisher buddies over at Penguin Random House, Usborne Publishing and Golliancz.

It truly was an amazing box filled with some awesome stuff!

Has anyone read or heard of Out Walkers?

Over the next few weeks, I’m hoping to revamp any previous unboxing posts and continue this type of style for them! I’ll also be posting previous unboxings – which have just stayed in my drafts folder and never got posted!

On friday, I’m hoping to post a fun little blog about an embarrasing thing I do because I love to write! And how it helps put everything into perspective!

Until then though guys,
