This month, I received one of the most awe-mazing boxes ever from Go Indie Now!

It recently went through a change and it has a new look. Now Ashley includes everything possible in order to transport you to a 4D mental vacation! Each item appeals to one of your senses and it definitely pays off with every unboxing. This concept is one of the most spectacular and unique ones I’ve ever heard of and I have no complaints on this end.

June box’s genre was Historical Fiction and it included the following items:

The book included was Davenport House by Marie Silk!

Synopsis:

Davenport House is the first book in a family saga that follows the wealthy Davenport family and their servants in 1915 America.

Mary Davenport is a 22-year-old idealist who worries that the world in the Progressive Era is leaving her behind. She lives isolated in the Pennsylvania countryside with her affluent and secretive family. When her father dies suddenly, Mary becomes pained with grief and increasingly suspicious of those around her.

A humble servant girl has the chance of a lifetime to become a lady’s companion. Costly dresses, exquisite rooms, and fine dinners are pleasant distractions from what is really happening in the house.

With the book came a personalized bonus content packet that includes a letter from the creator, Ashley, and an exclusive interview with the author! There is also a post card listing all of the items!

Ashley decided to make one of my all time favorite items ever (I have a lot of favorites in this box, so please bare with me while I call them all my favorites.) a permanent item in her box. She’s now including a scent pack every month and it’s so exciting!!

This month she chose the ‘Tea Party’ scent pack from [Adventure Scents] and I can’t stress enough how AMAZING it smells. To this day, I’m still smelling it at least once a day. It’s really no wonder why it’s one of my favorites.


To touch:

Ashley included a Victorian Cameo brooch! This beautiful piece calls out to my soul because it is now going with my collection of cameos! I love everything and anything Victorian and this month’s box more than appealed to that side of me. Of course, it’s one of my favorite items in this box as well!


Some other items that were included were a fan

and

a handmade bookmark by Ashley!

I really love how you can tell how much personal touch, effort, and time she puts into every box. You’re not just getting spectacular items, but you’re also receiving a piece of the creator and I think that’s really important.

And last but definitely not least, she included a bonus gift for her reps. Since I am one, she sent me this SPECTACULAR and JAW-DROPPING necklace!!! I hate that you can’t see the hearts that replace my eyes every time I look at this beauty to let you know how much I have fallen in love with it!!! I have many obsessions, but one of the first ones that has been with me since I was a little girl was my obsession for Egyptian Mythology. (Fun Fact: I dressed up as Cleopatra for Halloween once.) Nobody really knows this about me except for my immediate family so imagine my surprise when I open this cute little white box and this beautiful eye is starting up at me… I freaked out big time and I may have screamed as well. Tears were definitely present. I loved it that much. It reminded me of my childhood and my undying love for Egyptian Mythology so I will treasure it always. I have an incredible and emotional attachment to it already and it means so much that Ashley thought to gift me this. She managed to read my mind (and heart) and I’m super grateful for that fact.

REP BOX UNBOXING: Go Indie Now!

This May, I was lucky enough to have been selected to not only represent one but TWO book box subscriptions! This is the first time I have been selected as a rep for anything and I am bursting with gratitude towards the beautiful people who made it happen.

I want to start by talking about the Go Indie Now subscription. This box was created by an amazing indie author, Ashley Marie Nestler. This box is specifically targeted for those who love and appreciate the written word no matter who publishes it. (Like me!) If you’ve been following me for a while, then you know what a huge indie lover I am. Indie books are what I usually read, more than popular books, and I am absolutely happy to have found this box! It’s perfect for my tasted and I couldn’t have asked for a better box to represent.

Okay, okay, now for the moment you’ve all been waiting for, the unboxing:

The theme for this month was Fantasy! The box for May included not one, but two books by the author, Michael E. Dellert. They were beautifully wrapped up in this soft red bow that tore my heart to pieces to unravel. I secretly kept it like that until I actually HAD to post the covers on my Instagram. Don’t judge me.

These are the beautiful covers and I can’t get over how amazing the details in them are! The cover artist definitely knows what they are doing and I’m a happy owner of this amazing artwork. They themselves seem to promise an epic adventure with badass battle scenes and I can’t wait to get around to reading them!

The box also included a postcard of the cover art for the first book along with a physical map of the world these books take place in. The books have the map printed on them as well but this was an amazing surprise! You actually get to hold the map in your hands and it’s marvelous.

Ashley included a beautiful business card for the subscription as well.

Now, to introduce my FAVORITE item in this box, apart from the books themselves.

The scent pack!!!

I was obsessed with the amazing aroma that hit me as soon as I opened this package. I frantically looked through the items to find out what was responsible for this obsession and I found this:

13178909_10205530647660291_5158231321750171754_n

This is what the bag looks like from the back. There’s so many scent ‘beans'(?) in there and I literally want to spread them all around the house so everything smells just like them. I’m obsessed guys and I’m pretty sure that whenever I have a job again, I’m buying loads of these. Different scents too because why not?

The next item I’m pretty obsessed with are these beautiful sword earrings! A part of me is pretty sad about receiving these since I can’t wear them due to my ears being stretched but I might have to wear them after I make them into a necklace or something. Anyway, I love them and I am so happy to own them!

REP BOX UNBOXING: Fantasy and Sci Fi Books!

The second box subscription that was generous enough to choose me as one of their first representatives was Fantasy and Sci-Fi Books!!

I’ve been seeing this beautiful box around booktube and bookstagram a lot and I’ve been in love with the items from first glance. They always include a new YA release and I was excited to see what they would choose. I’m proud to be a rep for them and their box didn’t disappoint!

Now for the unboxing:

13220828_10205530648220305_5259601927397642103_n


The theme for the month of May was: Fantasy! I am a complete fantasy-holic and proud of it! The genre is up there with romance for me; they share the #1 spot in my heart and I don’t know if they will ever be trumped from their glory.

The book included in this box was The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi! I’ve been seeing this beautiful book around bookstagram and I can’t believe it’s now in my possession. I can’t wait to get around to reading it!

This book came with a beautiful matching & SIGNED bookmark as well:

13138999_10205530648740318_3676777403523070799_n


The next item in the box were this beautiful Star-Touched Queen inspired temporary tattoos. I’ve already worn some and I can’t wait to wear the rest.

They’re so beautiful!

13102796_10205530649940348_3655038839737561479_n


This box also included a pair of blue and red Wonder Woman socks! These look so beautiful and comfortable but I will be giving them away soon with a couple other items as well.

Stay tuned for that!

The next item in the box was this beautiful magnet of The Butterfly Code by Sue Wyshynski! That cover is gorgeous and definitely intriguing. I’ll be adding the book to my TBR on it alone:

And now for my favorite item in this box, beside the book:

The anklet!!

I’ve already posted a picture on my Instagram with me wearing it and I mentioned that I will never take it off., which is true! I can’t remember the last time I owned an anklet and I was pretty excited to receive one in this box. It’s a double chain anklet with one chain containing a row of stars, tying in perfectly with the book:

13178920_10205530650140353_5401088957401355457_n


There was some hair bling included as well. I’m slightly confused as to how to wear these (even after reading the instructions) but I might give them away with the Wonder Woman socks if I can’t figure it out.

They look fun to wear though:
