Again I know I’m late for posting this but hey I’m blogging again at least? As you know OwlCrate is my favorite subscription box, I was so excited for theme actually I was hoping for more mermaid items but I was fine with what they sent. March theme was Sailors, Ships & Seas.

OwlCrate X Simply Gilded Mermaid Washi Tape

This is an exclusive design for OwlCrate, it’s a beautiful purple with gold foil mermaid scale design tape. I don’t normally use these type of tapes but I’ve seen some amazing and creative ideas, and I have to share it.

Boy Girl Party Notepad

This notepad is adorable and it has a cute octopus. I think there is two designs for this notepad, I’m glad I got this one because I can’t stop repeating how cute it is.

Kitch Studios Tea Towel

This tea towel is huge, I wasn’t expecting that. It’s cotton and has a ship design with the quote “a ship is always safe at shore, but that is not what it’s built for” by Albert Einstein. Well since I’m a mother and accidents happen every now and then, this towel is pretty useful for me.

The Geeky Cauldron Compass Pendant Necklace

I remembered that I got an item before from The Geeky Cauldron which was in the Once Upon a Dream box so I was excited to see another item made by them. The necklace is quite long if you’re into that type of accessories, it has a domed glass compass and an anchor. I would wear it I think if I want to go out of my usual comfort zone.

A temporary tattoo inspired by the book, also a signed bookplate sticker which as usual  I already sticked in the book and of course a letter from the author. Now onto book of the month …

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

There will be plenty of time for me to beat him soundly once I’ve gotten what I came for.

Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map―the key to a legendary treasure trove―seventeen-year-old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured by her enemies, giving her the perfect opportunity to search their ship.

More than a match for the ruthless pirate crew, Alosa has only one thing standing between her and the map: her captor, the unexpectedly clever and unfairly attractive first mate Riden. But not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.

In Daughter of the Pirate King, debut author Tricia Levenseller blends action, adventure, romance, and a little bit of magic into a thrilling YA pirate tale.

It’s definitely not my usual choice of books but I’m willing to give it a go, it sounds quite exciting because … PIRATES.

Overall, I wouldn’t say I’m disappointed but I think I had different expectations for this box, it’s a good box though I like all the items they sent out because it definitely fits the theme of the book. Hope you enjoyed this post and have a great day.
