“OwlCrate was created to share the joy of reading with the world. We believe in the importance of literature, and the magic of the written word. Stories help to expand our minds, expose us to new experiences, and show us that we’re not alone. But we also know that reading can often feel like a solitary activity, and we wanted a way to bring book nerds together. ” (OwlCrate).
Hello everyone! It’s almost summer! School is almost over! The days are getting warmer! What better way to celebrate that then to do an unboxing from Owlcrate with the theme of “Sailors, Ships, and Seas.” For a little background, Owlcrate is service – similar to LootCrate – that ships out a package every month filled with book related items. I used to be subscribed to this monthly, but unfortunately I cannot afford it anymore. Luckily for me, this past Memorial Day, they put the past boxes on sale and I was able to buy this one!
The first thing I pulled out was the mermaid washi tape. I’m not going to lie, this is one of my favorite things in this box. I am a huge fan of mermaids and so I’m super excited to decorate my new room next year with this. It’s so simple and probably not something everyone loves, but I thought it was so cute.
The second thing was this towel. This actually surprised me because I’m so used to knickknacks and other smaller things (like the tape). But this is a really cute hand towel and something I would want in my actual kitchen! It says it is washing machine safe too, so we’ll see how this holds up.
The next thing was simple, but cute. In a previous box, I had gotten a little To-Do List from boygirlparty.com and I love it. I still use it daily and especially during finals. So even though this is simple, I think it is very cute and something I will likely use a lot.
There isn’t much to say about this little guy. He’s the Owlcrate mascot dressed up in a pirate’s costume. And it’s a pin. Cute!
So this is the back (my mistake) and the front is down below. This necklace is so cute! I know not this isn’t for everyone, especially if you’re really not one to wear nerdy/bookish things on you. But I think its a really cute compass necklace. I’m wearing it right now even!
Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map—the key to a legendary treasure trove—seventeen-year-old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured by her enemies, giving her the perfect opportunity to search their ship.
More than a match for the ruthless pirate crew, Alosa has only one thing standing between her and the map: her captor, the unexpectedly clever and unfairly attractive first mate, Riden. But not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.” (Source)
