December OwlCrate Review
The December box has finally arrived, so let's get right to it. The theme was "Beneath the Waves."
First up, we had this little reusable bag by Janine Lecour. This is inspired by To Kill a Kingdom and I love the sea vibe. These are always handy to have, so I'm sure I'll be getting a lot of use out of it.
Next, there was the last installment in their seasonal drinkware collection. This winter-themed mug was designed by Macarena Chomik, and features a quote by Toni Morrison. I drink tea every day, so this is perfect.
Then we had this little cleaning cloth inspired by Fable created by @Meaningfulletters_ and @NicoleDeal.Art. I wear glasses so I'm always in need of one of these.
This was probably my favorite thing in the box. It's a spinning pendant necklace inspired by A Darker Shade of Magic created by @paperbackbones. I've never really liked any of the jewelry that has been included in past boxes, but this is subtle and way more my vibe.
OwlCrate always do a wooden ornament in December, and this one created by Juniper and Ivy Designs was inspired by The Mermaid, The Witch, and the Sea.
We also got the reading planner which was supposed to come in November's box. I love the design, but I already use my own journal for tracking my reading, so I've already passed this off to someone else.
The last item was this Percy Jackson inspired magnetic dry erase board by Chatty Nora. I love the idea of this and the design is stunning, but I won't actually use this.
The December book was Skin of the Sea- Natasha Bowen. This is a West African inspired story that's said to be a mix of Children of Blood and Bone and the Little Mermaid in which a mermaid takes on the gods themselves. Simi serves the gods as Mami Wata-- a mermaid-- who collects the souls of those who die at sea and blesses their journeys back home. But when she defies the gods and saves a drowning boy, she must travel to the Supreme Creator to make amends. Danger lurks at every turn, and the boy she saved seems to know a lot more than he should. Simi must brave treacherous lands, vengeful gods, and legendary creatures in order to get to the truth of what's happening before it's too late.
This sounds super interesting and I do love anything with mermaids, so I'm excited to get to it soon. Let me know what you thought of this box!
