Fairyloot March Unboxing: Memorable Moments

IMG_9495.JPG

The March Fairyloot's theme is "Memorable Moments," and not only does it celebrate some iconic moments in our favorite books, but it also celebrates the anniversary of the subscription box's launch! To commemorate the anniversary, March Fairyloot boxes were a gorgeous purple color. It's time for an unboxing! Note: All prices are listed in USD.

Cork Bunting- Paladone - $9.84

The anniversary boxes seem to include an extra special decorative item that's not quite book-related, but still extremely fun. Last year, they included fairy lights. This year, I am thrilled about the cork bunting! I have been hunting down new decorations and I can't wait to put this to use in my new office space.

Rune Ceremony Scarf - FictionTea Designs - est. $10

This exclusive scarf features runes from The Mortal Instruments for that extra kickbutt mojo you might need in your everyday life. To be completely honest, I probably won't wear this scarf, if I was just looking for any scarf to wear on a chilly day. It's something that I might wear, perhaps at Book Con or Comic Con, though.

Toast to the Warden of the North Hot Chocolate - Eponine - est. $7

I'm a sucker for beverage mixes in my subscription boxes. This chocolate mix is a tribute to Jon Snow with beautiful artwork by Till and Dill!

Bilbo's Birthday Cake Vegan Soap - Geeky Clean - est. $7.07

This is an excellent-sized bar of soap that smells amazing! I've been on a soap-making kick recently, so it's really inspiring to experience this creation.

Goblet of Fire Candle - Paper Flames Candle Co - est. $3

I love the color of this candle! But why is it soooo tiny?! *sad*

Extras

In this month's box, we received a bookmark and pin featuring artwork and quotes from Belles. How cute that the Fairyscoop pamphlet for this month was also purple!

State of Sorrow, by Melinda Salisbury - $11.98

There are a couple of things special about this book. 1) It's not available in the US! 2) The standard U.K. edition is in paperback, but a hardcover was printed exclusively for Fairyloot subscribers. How cool is that?

Goodreads Summary

Sorrow - for that is all she brings us.

A people laid low by grief and darkness.
A cut-throat race for power and victory.
A girl with everything and nothing to lose…


By day, Sorrow governs the Court of Tears, covering for her grief-maddened father, who has turned their once celebrated land into a living monument for the brother who died before she was born.

By night, she seeks solace in the arms of the boy she's loved since childhood. But one ghost won't stop haunting her, and when enemies old and new close ranks against her, Sorrow must decide how far she's willing to go to win...

TOTAL VALUE: $48.89 USD

I PAID: $59 USD (including shipping)

This box was a little tough for me. While the scarf is supposed to be a "big" item in the box, it wasn't one that I was especially thrilled with. Since the book is not only an exclusive hardback but also only available in the U.K., there is some intrinsic value there. However, I was definitely a little disappointed in this anniversary box and expected a lot more.
