I got Fairyloot’s February box and it was sooo amazing!
I’m gonna link to all of the creator’s sites for each item so you can check them out and maybe buy something if you like their stuff.
Without further ado, this month’s theme is::
Look at all this amazing-ness. It came on the mail yesterday when I was about to go to work so obviously I was almost late.
Up there you can get a quick look of all the things that I got on the box but I’d like to stop a bit at each item.
When my mom saw me pull out a mysterious package with bright green stuff inside and the word Poisonous she was less than thrilled. Alas, this is not poison, they are bath salts inspired by the apple from Snow white. The type is Juicy Apple and I can’t wait to try it. The Poisonous Apple luxurious bath salt is made by Little heart gifts.
Next are these witchy socks inspired by Hansel and Gretel or The witch and the gingerbread house. They are made exclusively by fairyloot and are 100% cotton, super soft and useful.
It isn’t really a bookish box if it doesn’t bring a scented candle with it and so here we have The Hinterland by Wick and Fable. It says the smell is oak moss and tea leaves, for me it smells like an old bookstore and it’s perfect to curl up with a good book when it’s cold outside.
And what’s missing in that scenario? Of course a good cup of your drink of choice. Whether you like a nice calming tea or a strong coffee or maybe just water (like me) you have this fantastic mug designed by Anjuli Art. The design is based on the tales of the brothers Grimm and it’s, as you can see, adorable. I’m weak for water-color so this is like the perfect choice for me.
before the book is a bookmark from Ink and Wonder Designs with a Little red riding hood and her wolf.
It took me some time to figure out the quote because English is not my first language and I didn’t remember the word lurk existed. It says, in a very stylized font: Wolves may lurk in every guise
It’s a 100% ethically sourced and sustainable bookmark, according to the website and it’s made of actual wood but quite flexible.
Now the thing you’ve all been waiting for!
Not really because you saw it on the picture at the top
This month’s book is::
Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice’s life on the road, always a step ahead of the uncanny bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice’s grandmother, the reclusive author of a cult-classic book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate, the Hazel Wood, Alice learns how bad her luck can really get: her mother is stolen away―by a figure who claims to come from the Hinterland, the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother’s stories are set. Alice’s only lead is the message her mother left behind: “Stay away from the Hazel Wood.”
Alice has long steered clear of her grandmother’s cultish fans. But now she has no choice but to ally with classmate Ellery Finch, a Hinterland superfan who may have his own reasons for wanting to help her. To retrieve her mother, Alice must venture first to the Hazel Wood, then into the world where her grandmother’s tales began―and where she might find out how her own story went so wrong.
I’ve seen a lot of conflicting opinions on this book but it looks interesting and the cover is beautiful so it meets all my criteria. I’ll keep you all posted on my thoughts and feelings
That’s it for this box! I really liked it and it wasn’t as expensive as I feared (since it’s from the UK and I had to pay in pounds) it came two days after it was shipped, which is awesome considering I live pretty much on the other side of the world.
