#BOOKISHBOX – December 2016

Happy holidays loves!!!

BookishBox is back with its magical December box: YULE BALL! A wonderful Potter themed holiday box filled with delightful goodies!

Standard with each box: the Appraising Pages shirt. This one depicts a grey and gold wreath with wizardly touches including the sorting hat, the snitch, the elder wand, and a broomstick.

Next we have the bonus shop goodies!

  • A Jar of Buttons enamel pin with all of Potter’s required reading
  • A tumbler from Drop and Give Me Nerdy rocking the Weird Sisters at Hogwarts in ’94
  • A candle titled “Christmas in the Great Hall” sure to transport to the hearth of Hogwarts

And another staple: a Lexy Olivia bookmark with a lovely quote from the headmaster himself.

Really impressed with this box mixing holdiay and fnadom into one gorgeous package! Until next box…

XOXO Nalla

#BOOKISHBOX – November 2016

November #BookishBox is here! Our theme? BANNED BOOKS! EEK! This box has been my favorite so far!

We’ve got the standard Appraising Pages shirt with a lovely quote from Eleanor & Park (which I have  not read). But I love the message and this is a great addition to my shirt collection from them!

Ooooh another pouch! This one is from Out of Print and has some striking (hah pun intended) book titles covering the print. Its been aded to the book bag for use!

Appraising Page strikes again with this mason jar with the ultimate creed of any book lover: “READ MORE BOOKS”. I fit a mini fake candle in it but it could easily store ones or bookmarks or jewelry. Or you can use it as a drinking glass! Get creative!

Cherry Pit Crafts is back with A BUTTERBEER CHAPSTICK! With the release of Fantastic Beasts, I thought it fitting to include the original book alongside.

And finally: always my favorite….a Lexy Olivia bookmark! This gorgeous purple watercolor bookmark quotes this month’s theme.

Can’t wait to find out what December’s theme will be! Until next time….

XOXO Nalla

#BOOKISHBOX – A Nightmare Before Christms

img_9634

There are objects so peculiar
They were not to be believed
All around, things to tantalize my brain
It’s a world unlike anything I’ve ever seen
And as hard as I try I can’t seem to describe
Like a most improbable dream
But you must believe when I tell you this
It’s as real as my skull and it does exist
Here, let me show you

Makes-You-Grateful-Your-Holiday-Gifts-Wont-Curated-Halloween-Town.gif

Oh do I love BookishBox’s one time boxes! I got the Nightmare Before Christmas box before it ran out and I couldn’t be more ecstatic about it! Let’s get to the goodies!

Cherry Pit Crafts again supplies a themed candle! Absolutely smells like NBC with balsam fir needles and sweet sugar cookies. The perfect mix of Jack and Sally. Evie Seo takes my breath away with this adorable mug of Jack and Sally as well!

“We’re simply meant to be.”

Apprasing Pages provides the cutest Jack Skellington ornament sure to compliment any halloween themed christmas tree. And Nerdy Girl Designs has a disturbingly cute Oogie Boogie magnetic bookmark!

And the usual staple for any BookishBox: a themed tee! This one another quote: “Just because I cannot see it doesn’t mean I can’t believe it!”

As any other 90s child I’ve loved The Nightmare Before Christmas for a long time and this box held just the right level of creepy cute to add to my bookish collection. Stay tuned for the next book box review!

#LITFULREADS – October 2016

October book box #2! The BeauLITful Reads box

This month’s book: BEAUTIFUL by Christina Lauren with an Autographed book plate!

29432729 Featuring the entire BEAUTIFUL series cast for one final hurrah!

A FREE-SPIRITED GIRL IN NEED OF A BREAK.
A MAN WEIGHED DOWN BY RESPONSIBILITY.
A ROAD TRIP VACATION WHERE ALL BETS ARE OFF.
OH, AND A LOT OF WINE.

After walking in on her boyfriend shagging another girl in their place, Pippa Bay Cox ditches London for the States to go on a drunken road trip with Ruby Miller and some of her Beautiful friends.

Scaling the career ladder is the default way to deal with heartbreak—and to just deal—for Jensen Bergstrom. Absolutely buried by his drive and workload, he rarely takes time for himself. But when his sister Hanna convinces him to join the gang on a two-week wine tour, he has a rare moment of cutting loose. Of course, it’s only once he’s committed that he realizes the strange girl he met briefly on the plane is coming along, too. She might be too much for him…or he might realize his life has become too small and needs her to make it bigger, crazier.

With this circle of friends there’s always something going on: from Chloe and Sara’s unexpected personality swaps to Will’s new domestic side to Bennett’s text message barrage and George’s own happily-ever-after. In short, their adventures in love, friendship, and hilarity are nothing short of Beautiful.

Also included was an adjustable Ampersand bracelet from the shop Initial Fashion. Super cute! 

Finally the AWESOME wine glass!!!! I love this so much! 

Can’t wait for November’s box and I purchased another one-time box that I’m hoping will ship soon!

#BOOKISHBOX – October 2016

Hello beauties! Another #bookbox review! The Bookish Box’s October theme was short and sweet: Bibliophile Goodness!

Cherry Pit Craft‘s Bibliophile candle is a mix of coffee and vanilla: the perfect combo for any book nerd to accompany the cold drafty nights reading horror stories. P.S. They’ve got a Hocus Pocus candle for your spooky needs!

Lexy Olivia!!!! Again we receive a glorious watercolor bookmark from the master Lexy Olivia which reads “just one more chapter”. An old adage that any book lover finds themselves chanting late into the night. My collection is growing thanks to her alone.

As with any Appraising Pages box we get a book themed shirt. This month’s feature is a small stack of books which spell out “We read to know we are not alone”. This shirt is also one of the softest they’ve ever sent since I started getting boxes earlier this summer. Definitely made to keep you cozy along with a pashmina ampersand pashmina scarf, A bit short for my taste but an easy and quick accessory any bookworm can add to their wardrobe for the day.

Can’t wait for November’s box and I purchased another one-time box that I’m hoping will ship soon!

#LITFULREADS – September Unboxing

Time for another (quick) book box review! The September Beautiful Reads box was crazy romantic!

A STUNNING Gone With the Wind (what could BE more romantic?!) metal bookmark from Authored Adornments. I’ve seen them all over Instagram and their pieces are just works of beauty. They have their own subscription box as well!

The Melting Library shared their Belissima candle with smells heavenly. I have a lot of their candles in my favorites and this little tin is the perfect size.

img_9250

The themed book this month is Roman Crazy by Alice Clayton and Nina Bocci (with a signed book plate that I unfortunately did NOT photograph). Honestly, this doesn’t seem up my alley but I may eventually one day give it a shot. Check it out on Goodreads. The story sounds cute but a little out of my realm of typical romance novels. Good for those craving an out of town romantic whirlwind!

Looking forward to my October box! Until next time..

XOXO Nalla

#BOOKISHBOX – Outlander Box

OH. MY. GODS.

Y’all this box..I couldn’t even wait to leave the post parking lot to open it! Let’s get to this review!

The shirt quote is, as always with Appraising Pages, perfect and fully embodies Jamie and Claire. I admit I’m a sucker and haven’t finished book 1! I started with the show by watching episode 1 while on vacation with my sister and immediately knew I wanted the books. When I got home i started reading and watching an episode at a time so I was at the same pace. But I stopped right before The Wedding and sometimes…juuuuust sometimes the picture is better than the words because whoo lord those two…. But one day I WILL catch up with the books! For now I’ll settle on watching my Jamie and Claire.

The Lexy Olivia bookmark! I fear I may need to buy this girl out of house and home! Her bookmarks are always my favorite. And I was about to purchase the “Sassenach” one when this came in the mail! Although I’m sure I’ll still buy it… This lovely quote from Jamie will definitely do for now.

The Geeky Caldron‘s beautiful Sassenach bangle is perfect! Silver is my jewelry color and I’m proudly wearing this beauty with the rest of my baubles. From The Page‘s “Claire’s Pressed Flowers” candle smells so pretty! I love lavendar! I’ll need to buy a bigger one soon.

My other favorite piece of this box was the tumbler. The triquetra is one of my own symbols that I resonate with and paired  with Claire’s quote…I’m in awe of how perfect this really is.

“Sometimes I feel very much a stranger in a strange land.”
