It seems weird to me that they would include both an edible item and an inedible item in a box (because I am a child and want to eat them both?) but I love both these items! I haven’t tried them yet but the bath salts smell AMAZING and I like Earl Gray tea. I do wish it wasn’t decaffeinated, but you can’t win them all.
The lantern is gorgeous and I can’t wait to use it in my bookstagram pictures! I am a little hesitant to actually use it with a candle though, because the bottom of mine is super loose and falls out? It seems like it should twist and lock in place but is still tips and won’t stay. Does anyone else have this problem?
The outside of the tin says “I am so, so alive” and the tray says ” The ocean will not shift me and the cold will not take me” I really like the double layers of the tin, now I just need to figure out what I want to put in it!
The bookmark is awesome! For me it will be decorative because I don’t use bookmark, but that is ok because it is really pretty!
At fist glance I thought the pin was a Russian building (like on the original cover of Shadow and Bone) It took me a bit to realize it was supposed to be lighthouse. But the light in the lighthouse is supposed to be glow in the dark so that is really cool!
I love the changes they made for the exclusive cover. The teal color feels much more ocean-like and it’s a lot prettier. I don’t know if all the editions have it or just the OwlCrate edition, but the title page, the inside cover, and the naked cover all have cool designs too!
Overall I really love this month’s this box!! It doesn’t really have anything extra that I won’t use, and I like every single item!
Next month’s theme is Fear the Night, which I am not looking forward to at all, but I’m a glutton for punishment so I will still get the box!
