Subscription Boxes

Owlcrate, Litcube and MORE June 2017 Unboxing

Hey guys, it’s my favorite part of the month! Time to open June’s subscription boxes 😉

Get ready for spoilers because I’ll be featuring Owlcrate Jr, Owlcrate, Lit-Cube, Litcube & Utopia Con Special Edition, The Crowns of Croswald (sent by the author of the book!) and Stars Hollow Monthly June 2017 Unboxings.

By the way, I’m experimenting with a new way to show unboxings, I hope this will be easier to digest than looking at separate posts for all the boxes. What do you guys think? Would you be interested if I included the approximate prices of the items too?

Also, I finally downloaded Adobe Lightroom to edit my pictures, but for some reason they turned really blurry! I’m sorry if the quality is not the best, I’m still getting used to this new software…

I have more pictures and unboxing videos on my Instagram, if you prefer to check them out over there. Let’s start 😀

Owlcrate Jr

The Owlcrate Jr June 2017 box was themed Gizmos and Gears and it came with:

  • A building set from Plus-Plus. Like little Lego pieces but in the shape of a #.
  • An adorable sticker sheet.
  • A Hexbug Nano (my cat, Yuki, loved this bug!).
  • A Brain-Fart pen and eraser set. The erasers are really fun because they’re puzzles (and I haven’t been able to put together one of them…)
  • The book York: The Shadow Cipher by Laura Ruby. It came with a letter and bookplate from the author. And a secret code door hanger.

I love that the Owlcrate Jr boxes keep getting better and better. Don’t you think all the goodies are really fun?

The Owlcrate June 2017 box was themed Make It Out Alive and it came with:

  • An ACOTAR inspired bookmark (double sided!).
  • A Divergent bath bomb with a faction charm inside (I already used the bath bomb and got the Dauntless charm!)
  • An Ember in the Ashes inspired magnet.
  • A zombie sleep mask.
  • The book New World: Rising by Jennifer Wilson.
  • The book The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson  It came with an exclusive Owlcrate cover. A letter and bookplate from the author and a sticker sheet.

This box had so many things inside! I’m also digging the green theme… (Is green a dystopian color? Because it fits really well). Also, YAY for two books in a box.

  • Discount Code: Pretty15 for 15% off your first purchase


The Lit-Cube June 2017 box was themed Modern Cinderella and it came with:

  • A wand made of rock candy (that I plan to use with my coffee)
  • A slipper trinket box.
  • Foamy bath salts.
  • A bookmark / journal closure with the words “Have courage and be kind”.
  • The book by River Laurent.

This box also had a color theme going on. And of course it had to be blue! I wouldn’t expect any other color for a Cinderella themed box.

  • Price: $34.95 USD +shipping
  • Discount Code: PRETTYGEEKERY for 10% off your first purchase

Lit-Cube & Utopia Con Special Edition

The Special Edition Lit-Cube Utopia Con June 2017 box was themed Circus Freaks and it came with:

  • A Book Freak tote bag (with zipper, yay!)
  • A Book Freak t-shirt. I’m loving the design and I’m ready to wear it everywhere 😀
  • Cotton candy!
  • A cotton candy flavored lip-balm.
  • A Book Beau (with a creepy limited edition design).
  • The book The Circus by Olivia Levez.

This has been one of my favorite limited edition boxes from Lit-Cube! The t-shirt and tote are cute and also useful, and the cotton candy was a really fun surprise 🙂

The Crowns of Croswald

This box is a little different because it was curated especially to promote The Crowns of Croswald by D. E. Night and it came with:

I was contacted by a marketing person and asked if I wanted to get this box to help promote a fantasy book. Their description was: A book that is part Cinderella, part Harry Potter and all fun. So I obviously said YES, please send it to me! I still haven’t read the book but I plan to do it before the release date (July 21, 2017). I’m excited! 😀

Stars Hollow Monthly

Finally I got the Stars Hollow Monthly June 2017 and it came with:

  • Exclusive Stars Hollow sunglasses & Sunglasses case
  • Exclusive sandwich keeper
  • Exclusive Bid-a-Basket lunch bag
  • Collectible exclusive magnet (with the ooo-ber logo) 

This box looks like you’re supposed to take everything to a picnic, and I plan to do it! (Well, maybe I won’t take the magnet with me…)

  • Price: $34.90 USD +shipping
  • Discount Code: PRETTYGEEKERY for 10% off your first purchase

    Ugh, I’ve been hoping that reading these would help me to narrow down which to get. But they just make it so much harder…I honestly don’t know what to do. 🙁 I definitely like having all of them in one post – simplifies things.
