Today I’m unboxing a super cool box: Wootbox Retro II, August 2017. I got it for free from Wootbox. They contacted me some months ago, and I agreed to make an unboxing and share all the good and evil. I got no other payment than the box itself (and all the goodies inside). I know that bloggers do things differently. Usually, you get paid for unboxings. But I wanted to be free from any guilt if I didn’t like things inside of the box. So, Wootbox sent me the swag, and when I got it this weekend, I recorded the video. And thanks to the box they sent me I spent part of my weekend remembering my childhood.
So, what do I do with unboxings? I open the boxes in front of the camera and record whatever happens next all at once. I can only make this once since I have no interest whatsoever in promoting things I despise. I can edit whatever disaster happens during the adventure, but I cannot redo it again. Once I open the box, it’s done. If I like it, you’ll notice it because I make weird sounds while I fangirl. If I don’t, I’ll start complaining or saying something negative about it.
Spoiler alert: I loved this box! I’ve been torturing everyone in the house with childhood memories because of it. Did you play with the Gameboy? Did you like Mario? Then, this box was perfect for you!
Welcome to another FairyLoot unboxing! This time I’m unboxing all the awesome swag from April’s box. I must say that this subscription box becomes better by the minute! I had a wonderful time creating and editing the video. But it was hard for me to wait until unboxing it. This box was themed Dreams and Wishes. This was the perfect box for my birthday. In fact, it arrived just the next day. It was amazing!
I also decided to try the rep search from FairyLoot on Instagram. But, to be honest, with 800 entries, I think it’s going to be incredibly difficult to be noticed. But, the fun to just try is thrilling. Don’t you agree?
I know, I’m quite late in sharing an unboxing video about FairyLoot’s March box. I’ve been pretty busy, which means, editing videos is taking me longer than planned. But, here’s the video and here are the goodies! This is the one-year-anniversary box from FairyLoot. I must tell you: I adored it! But it was super heavy! (Happily heavy, merrily blue!)
The funny thing is that I was searching for some lights to decorate my shelves. But, I couldn’t make up my mind about what type, since I already have a set of white LEDs. Luckily, the guys from FairyLoot have done the job for me: and I adore what they sent me! A set of super cute unicorn and clouds (with some rainbows)! Sorry, not sorry to spoil one of the items before time, but I so happy to have the lights that I need to share it before the video begins!
My birthday is coming soon, so I decided to give a present to myself: a The Willoughby Book Club subscription. This is a peculiar unboxing since there’s only a book inside. You might think, but she said it’s a subscription? But, there’s only a book inside, right? You can subscribe for three, six or twelve months and ask Willoughby Book Club’s elves to choose the perfect book for you.
Exactly! You send all the details you can to the gorgeous minions working at Willoughby Book Club, and they will choose the best books! This is perfect to discover new authors and books you have no idea about. You have to be super detailed. Otherwise, this won’t work.
Today we have a blind date with a book. I got a parcel from an unknown person two days before Valentine’s Day. This is my first time having a blind date with a book, or any blind date, to be honest. I still have no clue who sent it to me! Is it you, naughty friend? Since I had no much time to edit this mess, this post comes a little bit late. Valentine’s over, but my search for my secret Valentine is still ongoing. Now, seriously, it was you, wasn’t it? So, if it was, please tell me in comments. I’ll give you a hug.
Now, this was one of the funniest videos I made so far. I had to cut myself laughing several times. But, in the end, I decided to keep some of the fun for you too. I discovered that smelling books could be quite a daring thing to do.
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!
So, it happened with J.K.Rowling’s Wizarding World Loot Crate unboxing! I made a video! It took me three days of wait until I could open my box and prepare myself to talk in front of a camera. This box came quite late since Loot Crate came up with some problems getting all the items. As I understood, we had to choose our House, and they would send us times from our House. However, items came mixed. To my delight, I got a tee from Slytherin. It seems that they’ll be sending a House-themed box next time. I hope they do since I was expecting that from this box.
When I was sorted in Pottermore, I got Ravenclaw. Then I tried again, and I got into Slytherin. So, I suppose I must be a mix of them: Raverin. Although I end up rooting for Slytherin, I have to confess that I do have Ravenclaw traits. Besides, I love Luna as well!
Fantasy and YA book subscription boxes available in the UK are rare. Most cool subscription book boxes are in the US. This translates to high shipping costs. However, there are some subscriptions that are out there and have cool swag for you.
Some of the book subscription boxes that were available in the UK have disappeared. Fortunately, the ones remaining are amazing. However, to find the available subscriptions from the UK was a little bit of a pain. So, I decided to list the boxes that I discovered that tune with my geeky tastes.
I recently subscribed to the Fairy Loot. Geeky goodies accompany the star book that comes in a bag that you can later use. It costs £26 (+ shipment, so it’s like £30). Each month there’s a different theme, and books seem to be amazing. My first box will arrive at the end of February. (Subscribing was quite a quest. I had to wait quite for a long time to get in!)
Monthly subscription or single purchase.
Bookish x Geeky swag.
£26 + Shipping.
Welcome to another Nerdy Bookworm Box unboxing! This time we’re discovering all the goodies from the December box. Before spoiling all the contents, I must say that this is one of my favorite boxes ever. You never know what you’re going to get, but you’re sure you’re going to have a great book. It does feel like Xmas every single month! And this is one of the high points of this box. I simply adore it!
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.
