#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 – 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!

#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!

#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.”

#BookishBox – September 2016

Hi Beauties! As promised here is the September Bookish Box review. This month’s theme: Literary Ladies!

Lots of little things in this box, but none of them too little to matter! There is a pair of J&CO Jewelry LeviosA earrings. These are b-e-a-utiful!  Perfectly small and matches the Hermione t-shirt from Appraising Pages. Love the red color of this shirt.

Bookish Box also included their bookworm highlighter/pen combo and  Matilda quoted sticky notes! Matilda was such a great movie and I remember watching it as a kid many times. There’s also an awesome button magnet from Jar of Button stating “Females are strong as hell”. Boyfriend will have to deal with that on our fridge!

IMG_8960.jpg

The Pride and Prejudice tea from First Edition Tea Co. makes me want to brew a batch and watch Austenland…THAT is a hilarious movie, haven’t read the book yet. I’m loving the Katniss arrow pen and highlighter holder from Nonies Custom Creations; that will definitely be going in my planner!

Lastly..another beautiful watercolor bookmark from Lexy Olivia! This one was actually on my wish list and is from Throne of Glass!

IMG_8961.jpg

Can’t wait for the October box…and I should have a one time box review coming soon!

#BookishBox – August 2016

#OverduePost 🙂

Hello Beauties! It’s time for a #BookishBox review! Today its the August 2016 Fairy Tales Box.

Lets start with the Appraising Pages t-shirt (9/10 is always my favorite part)! I love this font they use!! I need to find it. This quote is beautiful and awe inspiring. Makes sense as it comes from Sarah J. Maas‘ A Court of Mist and Fury. I am so behind on needing to read this book! But from what I’ve seen online and from LOVING the Throne of Glass series, i have no doubt it’ll impress. They’ve also included some cute Disney post it’s with the quote:

“Laughter is timeless, Imagination has no age, and dreams are forever.” – Walt Disney

Love the Peter Pan necklace that is from Bookish Box! So dainty and cute. I’m not one for big jewelry so this is definitely staying in my collection. I also now want to go watch Hook…

Lexy Olivia’s Beauty and the Beast bookmark….Oh My God. This thing is so damn pretty. First of all B&TB is my all time favorite Disney story besides Pocahontas (because duh she had a tattoo!). This watercolor and script bookmark is honestly the prettiest bookmark I have had the pleasure of owning. Check out her shop; I know I’ll be purchasing some more bookmarks!

Evie Seo’s Cinder inspired mug…Evie has some of my favorite book lover pieces on Society 6 and i’ve already purchased a little zipper much myself. Definitely go check it out. Although I haven’t read Cinder, this mug is gorgeous and matches some of the art in my planner!
