OwlCrate May Unboxing – Fight Like a Girl

Fight Like a Girl

As much as I loved the idea of “Fight like a Girl” I was a little worried that it would be full of pink girly stuff.  I shouldn’t have worried because this month’s box was AWESOME! (and there was no pink!)

We got two books this month!!! Catching Stars by Cayla Keenan and Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young.

The cover of Sky in the Deep is an OwlCrate exclusive! And it is signed! (and of course I forgot to take a picture of the signature!)

I like the OwlCrate version better because I like Silver better than Gold!

This month there were 3 pins:

The book pin is hard to read in the picture but it says “When in doubt go to the library” and it is my favorite item in the box!!

Next was a double sided bookmark:

C533C960-ECFE-4610-8907-24886F7E011D

I love the quotes but they are kind of hard to read on the busy background.

There was a bath bomb:

And a really cool wall hanging:

Finally there was an art print, the spoiler card, and a booklet with extra information:

Here is the other side of the spoiler card with all the information about all the items:

OwlCrate and Lit Cube April Reveal

This is my last Lit Cube reveal and my first OwlCrate reveal!  I thought last month was my last Lit Cube, but apparently I didn’t cancel it in time, so I got one more.

Let’s save the best for last and start with Lit Cube:

Lit Cube Reveal:

Lit Cube lowered the price of their subscriptions by $10, making it $25 a month.  They also started shipping items in a bubble mailer instead of a box and the quality and quantity of their items dropped significantly.

April’s theme was “Passport to California” and these were the items included, and their retail value:

  • Ana of California – $16
  • Anne of Green Gables inspired bookmark – $5
  • See’s Candy Lollipop – $1
  • Route 66 Enamel Pin – $10
  • California Decal – $4

I know the retail value of these items totals $36 but I wouldn’t have paid anywhere close to that for them.  The bookmark is just a laminated piece of paper with a huge yarn tassel.  We made these in 5th grade for a class project.  Literally a 5th grader can make them. (no offence to whoever did make it, its just not worth $5 in my opinion)

Overall I am incredibly disappointed in this box and it just re-enforced the fact that I am glad I canceled my subscription.
