This is the two year anniversary of FairyLoot’s first ever box, hence the purple box!
First up is something I’ve never seen in a bookish subscription box before, and it is cork bunting. The idea is that you can thread it together, and then pin photos and keepsakes on it. I’m not going to lie, I’ve already given it to my sister, because it doesn’t really fit in my room, but I think it’s a really cute idea.
One of my favourite items I’ve ever gotten in FairyLoot came in the July Box, and was a Loki body lotion from Geeky Clean, so I was super excited to see another item from them. This one is an exclusive vegan soap, that smells of strawberry and vanilla, and is Bilbo’s Birthday Cake. I don’t tend to buy soap, but I aways use it whenever I get some, and I’m excited to use this.
We also got some Toast to the Warden of the North hot chocolate form Eponine, which, while I haven’t tried it yet, I have very high hopes for. It’s the sort of fancy real-chocolate-hot chocolate where you have to use boiling milk. I’m usually a microwave sort of gal, so this is pretty fancy for me.
I’m not going to lie my decision to get this box was partly due to the purple box, and partly due to the promise of a scarf. Exclusive to FairLoot, this Shadowhunters scarf is nice and light, perfect for Spring, and designed by FictionTea Designs. I already know that this is going to be a staple in my wardrobe this year.
What is a bookish subscription box, without a candle? This candle is very small jar from Paper Flames, and is Goblet of Fire themed. It smells absolutely divine, of chocolate and fresh bread, which sound like an odd combination, but it works, I promise!
And as you can see the book of the month was State of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury, and is, as usual, a YA fantasy. We follow Sorrow, whose father is struggling with his grief after the death of her brother. By day she rules on his behalf, and by night she finds herself seeking solace int he arms of her childhood friend, or maybe something more? This sounds very intriguing and I’m pretty sure it’s on my April TBR, but if nothing else the cover is stunning.
*Side note: if you’re reading this, impressed with my photography skills, you can follow me on instagram too!!
And then we got the usual FairyLoot bookmark, FairyScoop, which was a lot longer this month and I loved it, a signed bookplate , and The Belles badge and bookmark.
Did you get the March FairyLoot, and if so what did you think? If not, what item would you most like to own? Or what’s a memorable moment from a book you recently read?
Thanks for reading!
