The theme for this month was "A Glorious Haunting," and it did a pretty good job of getting you in the spooky mood.
First up was this pumpkin spice flavored Sleepy Hollow chapstick by Fiction Bath Co. I actually have super sensitive lips and they get chapped very quickly if I use anything other than Carmex, so I can never actually use lip balms when we get them. I also don't like pumpkin anything (I'm more of an apple girl when it comes to fall!), so this isn't my cup of tea.
Next we had a Hocus Pocus Black Flame Candle by Novelly Yours. This is slightly too strong from my tastes, so I'm not sure how much use I'll get out of this, but I just love anything Hocus Pocus related.
My absolute favorite item in this box was this gorgeous bookmark by Lapels and Spells. I don't have any bookmarks that look like this, so right off the bat it's a standout for me, and I just can't get over the design.
Then we had these little skull coffee spoons by Team OwlCrate. I'm not a coffee drinker, but I'll find some other use for these cause they're just so fun.
The last item was this The Raven blanket by Michelle Gray. On one hand, I love how soft and cozy these blankets are, but the size always throws me cause they're never long enough to cover you fully.
The book for this month was Horrid by Katrina Leno. After her father's death, Jane and her mother move from sunny California to the dreary Maine house of her mother's childhood. As Jane tries to settle into her new surroundings, she seeks solace in old books and memories, especially after dealing with bullying and her mother's emotional spiraling. When exploring the old house, Jane stumbles upon a locked room that her mother says was for storage, but Jane soon discovers that it's actually a young girls bedroom-- and it doesn't seem to be as empty as it looks.
I've actually never heard of this book before, but it sounds intriguing and it definitely gives off the creepy vibes. Lemme know what you thought of this box!
