Fairy Loot Unboxing – August 2018

Today I have an unboxing of the latest box from Fairy Loot! Fairy Loot is a monthly subscription box focusing on Young Adult fantasy titles. You can get a single box from £26 per month (plus VAT and shipping) or you can choose to subscribe for 3 or 6 months.

I have been subscribed to this box for over a year and a half but the August ‘Mutinous Pirates’ box will be my last one, at least for a little while! This was a theme I was looking forward to so without further ado, here is what was included in this month’s box…

flaug1The first item I spotted was one I hadn’t received before and this was a water bottle which was designed by KDP Letters. It includes the quote ‘Why is the rum gone?’ inspired by Captain Jack Sparrow, and whilst I do not like this character the bottle itself is of a good quality and I loved the Fairy Loot bag that it was packaged in. There was another new item in the form of a hanging banner which features a quote inspired by Nikolai Lanstov, a character from the Shadow In Bone trilogy. Unfortunately there was a print error on this item with a misspelling, but a replacement is being arranged for this. The design itself was quite nice and this was created by Reverie and Ink.

flaug2Next up there was another new item, a wax seal! This was created by Fairy Loot and features a skull and crossbones design. This was an unusual item which I thought fitted in nicely with the theme and it is one I may have a go at using. We also received a magnet this month from Miss Phi. I liked the design of this which includes a quote from the Daughter of a Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller.

flaug3This month’s box included a candle from Nerd Poured Candles which was inspired by the character of Prince Elian in To Kill A Kingdom. I loved the glittery look of this candle and the ‘Sea mist and musk’ scent was also very nice. And the final item was a sugar soap scrub from Geeky Clean. This cherry blossom scented soap was inspired by a botanical plant which is relevant to this month’s chosen book so will be interested to find out why…

flaug4And this month’s book was These Rebel Waves by Sara Raasch. This is a book I haven’t heard of before but it sounds like a good read and I loved the cover art! I was also excited to see that this edition also has green sprayed edges and is signed by the author rather than the usual bookplate. It also included a letter from the author and a botanical plant card. And to complete this month’s box there was also the regular ‘Fairy Scoop’ leaflet, artwork bookmark, and reading buddy card.

I really liked the theme of this box and was pleased with most of the items with the book, wax seal and bottle being my favourites. The theme for the September box is ‘Starcrossed Swoons’, to find out more about Fairy Loot and how to get your hands on a box you can check out their website here.
