If you couldn't tell by now, I love me a good subscription box. I've been getting the OwlCrate one for a while now, but I'd always been interested in the FairyLoot one as well, so I thought it wouldn't hurt to check it out. The theme for this box was Mutinous Pirates, and I've gotta say, I was pretty impressed with what they sent.
The first thing I pulled out was this candle designed by Nerd Poured Candles inspired by To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo. I'm usually not that big of a fan of musky sea scents, but this is actually pretty nice.
This is a fun magnet by Miss Phi based off Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller. I love the colors and the subtle little treasure chest in the background.
I think this was by far my favorite thing in the box. It's a little pot of sugar scrub by Geeky Clean based upon the book of the month, and it has such a lovely sweet scent. It reminds me of sweet pea from Bath and Body Works and I love it.
This pirate wax seal was a FairyLoot exclusive and I'm not really sure when I would use this, but it is pretty cool. The seal itself is the typical pirate skull and crossbones, and I know it was going for the whole swashbuckling thing, but it's totally giving me Game of Thrones vibes.
You can't have a box about pirates and not include something Captain Jack Sparrow related. This water bottle was designed by KDP Letters and I love it. It's a nice size so it's not too bulky to carry around and I really like the lettering on it as well.
This is a lovely hanging print by Reverie and Ink based off a quote from the Shadow and Bone trilogy. The material is very silky and I love the silver writing on the black background. Unfortunately, there is a typo on it, but the FairyLoot team is sending out replacements which is nice.
The book they sent out was These Rebel Waves by Sara Raasch. This story, inspired by the Spanish Inquisition, is filled with adventure, magic, deception, and conspiracies. I've actually not heard much about this book, so I'm interested to see how it plays out. I'm really diggin' the neon green sprayed edges though.
I'm not sure if I'll be subscribing to this box or not. I think the things they sent were pretty cool, but it comes from the UK so it was a bit pricier shipping wise than the OwlCrate one. It might just be one I treat myself to every once in awhile!
