Friends and Fangirls, YA is the best thing in the planet. Young adult books are truly a miracle, especially when they are a part of subscription boxes. I both bought and received Elizabeth Frankenstein from a subscription box, gave away one copy, and fell in love with the other.
This was my final Owl Crate, and it was a doozy! This incredible box was filled to the brim with beautiful items! While I’m sad to say goodbye, I’m glad I went out on a high note. Lets get into what was inside the box!
This month I received my first ever Owl Crate. I unboxed it and fell in love, and I’m excited to see what the next two months of my subscription will be. It’s going to be full of spoilers, so if you haven’t gotten your box yet, don’t click that read more tab!
I have mixed feelings about the marketing behind this box. On one hand, I’m not single and I need reminders to love myself. But on the other hand, do folks who are single need more of a reminder to love themselves? If that was the case, should this be free? Either way, it’s been a minute since I got myself a subscription box and I definitely love myself, so I treated myself and ordered the Singles Swag box.
For ages now, I’ve been curious about Blue Apron. They sent me ads through email and mail, and I finally took the plunge, and with a pretty good deal (around $35 for a service that costs about $60 on average). I was excited about a couple things right from the start; you get to tell them you’re vegetarian and pick out your three recipes, awesome. So when I went onto my laptop to edit my preferences (their mobile site is finicky to say the least), I learned that as a vegetarian, I had to have a mushroom dish in my box. I don’t like mushrooms, unless they are well hidden, but I ended up with my only option being a mixed mushroom situation. With that, I was excited for 2 of my 3 meals that I would be getting.
Fangirls, I really like subscription boxes. I try not to get them though, because I have a lot of products. But when I saw that Julep was doing a free November box, I couldn’t resist. As a birthday present to myself, I paid the $2.50 or so in shipping, and had one sent to the apartment. It got to us right on my birthday, and it had three rad products in it.
Fangirls! Ashley and I both ordered Marvel Collector Corps boxes this month, and we got so pumped! We both got some incredibly rad items, and are really pumped to share our treasures with you.
