Hi Everyone! I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving (if you celebrate) and found some good deals shopping (if you do that sort of thing)! Last week I received my November Owlcrate Box themed Castles, Courts & Kingdoms. The info beforehand talked about if you loved Lord of The Rings, Harry Potter and Game of Thrones that this box would be for you. They were not wrong, this might be my favorite box EVER by Owlcrate!
Let’s start with the hate from Owlcrate themselves — that’s Harry Potter Themed, has a pom pom and is perfect for the winter here in the Northeast (the hat says Expecto Patronum). I sent a video of this hat to all my friends immediately. It’s so cold here too that I’ve worn this hat all week to work!
Below is a grouping of all the other contents (and also the picture you probably noticed on my Instagram).
I was also really excited to see another notebook (because you can never go wrong with a notebook) inspired by A Court of Mist and Fury — I mean does the quote Don’t Let The Hard Days Win ever get old?!? This was made by Stella’s Bookish Art — I hadn’t heard of this vendor before but after this notebook, I’ll definitely be checking it out more!
The only thing I didn’t love and will probably just add to a bag is the Brooch by Juniper and Ivy Designs, but honestly I think it’s because it’s inspired by Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse which I’ve never heard of.
The book this month is The Glass Spare — I haven’t heard of it but based on the cover alone it would be one I pick up to read. Here’s a very short synopsis from Goodreads:
A banished princess.
A deadly curse.
A kingdom at war.
Oh and PS — you get a signed bookplate with this book and the books cover was exclusive to Owlcrate meaning it’s a little more sparkly compared to what you would find in the bookstore.
Last but not least are two of the smaller items in the box — one which made me squeal. Can you guess which one made me squeal? If you assumed the soap that IS IN THE SHAPE OF ELVEN BREAD then you guess right. I so happy when I saw something with so much detail. It was designed by Fizzy Fairy Apothecary and smells amazing.
Inspired by Game of Thrones and made by Geek Fire Labs the last little item was a lip balm, which is perfect for someone like me who lives in the Northeast — chapped lip season is about to start for sure!
All in All this box was amazing. I could not have asked for better items that not only I can use but were so specific to the season of weather most of us will have coming up. Next month is Seize the day (which I’m skipping because of holiday season) but I’ll be back with another owlcrate unboxing soon!
Anyone else get this box and absolutely love it as much as me?
