March OwlCrate Review

Hello, all!

The theme for this month was "Of Witches and Wonder."

First up was this adorable tumbler designed by @mletteringlover with a quote from Sylvia Plath. I really like the design of this and think the colors work so well together. I actually don't have any tumblers this size, so yay for now having options for my drink ware!

I've said before that I don't really enjoy the personal care items they usually include in their boxes, and unfortunately, this roller perfume created  by Fiction Bath Company can be added to that list. It's inspired by The Year of the Witching and smells of blackberry, sage and cypress and it's just too woodsy for my liking.

How cute is this little tea bag plate! This was designed by Team OwlCrate and has a quote from Practical Magic. I think this is adorable, and I may actually just use it as a catch all tray because I tend to leave the tea bag in while I drink.

We've gotten plenty of book sleeves in these boxes, but never one for bookmarks! This A Discovery of Witches one was designed by Aimee Mac Illustrations. While I think it's a cool concept, I'm not sure how much use I'll get out of it, and I do wish that the actual design fit the aesthetics of the book a little more since I think the colors are a little too cheery.

I'm a notebook hoarder, so I'm always pumped to add a new one to my collection and this one by @saphiraas is so pretty! It's actually a sketchbook, but since I can't draw to save my life, I'll probably just find some other use for it.

The book this month was Sweet & Bitter Magic by Adrienne Tooley. Tamsin is the most powerful witch ever seen in generations, but after committing a magical sin, is exiled from her coven and cursed with the inability to love. In order to feel that emotion, she must steal it from others. Wren is what's known as a source-- a rare kind of person who is made up of magic, but unable to use it for themself. When her father succumbs to a dangerous plague ravaging her village, Wren strikes a deal with Tamsin: if Tamsin will help Wren find out the source of the sickness, Wren will give all her feelings of love to Tamsin. But of course, love bargains aren't as simple as they seem.

I've never heard of this book before and I'm slightly intrigued. I mainly love the lavender sprayed edges, but the premise sounds interesting. Is this on anyone's radar? 

Let me know what you thought of this months box!
