How to cover your books and comic books like a pro!

Today I want to share with you how to cover your books and comic books like a pro. I’ve been putting clear covers on my trades and books to keeping them safe since times immemorial. Even my mother has used me as the official librarian of the family: when I go back home I know I’ll be putting covers on books!

Why do I cover my books and comic books? I want to make sure that the paper covers are protected. Most paperbacks and trades can be damaged very quickly. Using clear covers allows me to keep them safe and to enjoy the covers in all their glory.

FairyLoot Unboxing February 2017

Yay! I made another unboxing! The FairyLoot unboxing February 2017 was super fun. First, because I got the box in record time (it was sent on Friday, and I got it on Saturday); and, second, because the contents are amazing! If you’re a bookworm obsessed with fantasy and science fiction, this box is an excellent idea. Plus, it has something called reading buddies. You get a card with a code. Someone else will get the same code. You post a picture, unboxing video or whatever on your social media, use your code and find your buddy! So, I hope that my potential future partner is out there and is as crazy as I am. Please, post something on your social media so I can find you!

This post (and the video) contain tons of spoilers. Boxes are still on their way for many people, so if you’re waiting for yours and don’t want to be spoiled, I recommend you to stop reading here. And, of course, stay away from the video. If you aren’t a subscriber or you don’t mind spoilers, keep on reading and discover the treasure!

Nerdy Bookworm Box November 2016 Unboxing

Yay! The Nerdy Bookworm Box November 2016 unboxing is here at last! Since I was visiting my parents, I couldn’t unbox this beautiful treasure. When I landed, the first thing I did was to open the box! I must say that this subscription box is one of the best out there. The jewel in the box is the book, of course. However, there are many other goodies that you’re going to love if you subscribe: a scented candle, geeky treats, and digital extras.

The book in the box was Moon Chosen by P.C. Cast, the first book of a fantasy series where animals accompany humans when darkness comes. The box also contains a Magizoology candle that celebrates J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Today I got my Doctor Strange Marvel Collector Corps box! The postman came with a big smile on his face because he knew I was going to be happy. (I’m always happy when I get boxes like this!) The unboxing was fantastic. Even if I saw some spoilers out there, I had no idea about all the goodness inside this box! First things first: the box itself is amazing with Doctor Strange designs all over.

When you open the box, you’re set up to find the usual pins: the eye of Agamotto and Doctor Strange himself! And then I opened the lid.

My Open Sketchbook Unboxing: OUAT’s Captain Hook!

Today is a special day! It’s My Open Sketchbook Unboxing day! Time ago I asked a Captain Hook from OUAT to Kay Nyman, the wonderful artist behind the blog My Open Sketchbook. I met her online, and I started following her blog and her art. I love what she does, and I love her art journey. Because I was going to move home, I decided to ask for something to decorate my new working space.

I love many different characters: Loki, Hook, Lagertha, Ragnar… However, I wanted to hook people when they visit my tiny working realm. And so, I chose Hook (and when I can, I might add Swan to the pot). The commission was for a Killian Jones in his naughty glory. Kay asked some pics I love as a reference, and so I sent her some.

Before you keep reading, I must tell you something. She included an extra! What I asked was a colored smoldering pirate to swoon all over. What I got was that and more! I’m so thrilled because the extra surprise is no other than my favorite Hookadorkable pic!!!

Unboxing Marvel Collector Corps Women of Power Box

Tada~! Another fantastic unboxing Marvel Collector Corps post with Women of Power! Funny, and at the same time, not funny at all, when you have the mail carrier ringing your bell at 7.30 am in the morning. I jumped like it was the end of the world! Why? I was sleeping like a rock! Every time the mail carrier comes around 7 am in the morning and rings the bell I jump and get scared. I could tell you many reasons, but I think it might be connected to the Big Earthquake I experience in Tokyo back in 2011. It wasn’t until I had the Women of Power box between my hands that I could start processing what was going on: cool goodies inside a box. And this time, it’s all about Women of Power!

I must admit that I’ve seen spoilers around. I couldn’t escape them since I saw everything on Instagram. However, I don’t mind them. For me, unboxing is an experience that has to be savored with your senses, and that implies touching the goodies. As you know, some of my favorite Marvel Superheroes were featured in the box! No wonder I was super excited to find a super cool Spider-Gwen tee in it! (I’ve been fangirling about that tee during all morning!)

Geek Girls x Bloggers Spring Fling Gift Exchange

I’m so happy I took part in Geek Girls x Bloggers Spring Fling Gift Exchange! Although there were some issues along the way, I had so much fun. First, because we did it through our favorite group on Facebook. All lady bloggers in the group are amazing, they write super interesting posts, and it’s wonderful to be friends with many of them. Second, because this Spring Fling Gift Exchange was hosted by From Girly to Nerdy. And third, because my surprise mate was Ashlee (Her Geekery)! If the combination of stars that made this happens isn’t magical, I don’t know what it is. But, I loved every single bit of it!

I’ll start with the little accident. I got a pair of super cute Loki earrings to die for. Unfortunately, Express your Fandom (a shop on Etsy), didn’t pack them well, and they came broken and bent. One of the horns on one of the Loki’s helmet was broken, and the hooks were super bent. Fortunately, the shop owners are super friendly, and they refunded the money to Ashlee. And, what do you think she did? (You gotta love the girl!)

Unboxing Marvel Collector Corps Captain America Civil War Box

marvel, marvel collector corps, collector corps, captain america, civil war, depepi,

Unboxing Marvel Collector Corps Captain America Civil War Box at 7.30 am in the morning wasn’t exactly my plan for this Saturday. But there was the postman, early bird, ringing on my home’s bell and making me jump off bed. Yesterday I was off with high fever, so I was mainly snoring the day with meds, sweating and with a miserable face. When I heard the the bell ring and I saw the hour I wanted to kick whoever-it-was butt. Seriously. Till I saw the box! I must admit that I was wating this box with some concerns. As you remember, in my previous location, getting the box turned out to be a nightmare. After changing location it took me a while to get back into Marvel Collector Corps again. Happily, Royal Mail is the one in charge of bringing the boxes home! Yay! Coz the next one in June has one of my favorite topics ever: Women of Power! [So, even if I have to go to fetch the box myself through Herculean works, I will have that one!] So, it was Civil War that made me subscribe again.

So, we arrive at the big moment: SPOILERS! If you click on reading more you’re going to find all the contents of the box (gorgeous items, btw). If you haven’t been spoiled yet through any other blogs, and if you don’t mind to be spoiled, or if you haven’t got this box but want to know what’s inside: keep on reading!

loot crate, unboxing, loot crate unboxing, women's extra lovable bundle, depepi,

Tada~! Another Loot Crate unboxing! This time, a Loot Crate Women’s Lovable Bundle box is here (and also a giveaway!) Loot Crate offered different bundle boxes through their gift shop, and so I got one. [If you subscribe to Loot Crate here, remember to add the code SAVE3 to safe $3!] There were many options, but I finally went for the Women’s Lovable Bundle, mainly because I would have more female fashion items to add to my geeky collection. So, if you have ordered the same box and you’re still waiting for it, please refrain from reading this post if you don’t want to see SPOILERS. However, if you want to see what was inside the box, or you didn’t order it but are curious, go ahead! Also, there’s a giveaway with some of the items in the box! Keep reading and enter the giveaway to get all the goodness!
