I know I have been seriously slacking, and I do apologize. I’ve just been so busy and tired. I’ve got a lot of posts coming though, so hang with me!
I didn’t get around to posting my unboxings in the actual month of February, but better late than never, right?

This box looks great. The book!! Let’s talk about what is inside.
Info Card + Button
They did forget my button this month. I emailed them and they did send me one, but it arrived after I photographed everything in the box. But it is also just as beautiful as the card!
The Night Circus Inspired Tote Bag by Evie Bookish (Exclusive!)
Thoughts: This is so pretty!! I know it is hard to read the font with the photo this small (WordPress won’t cooperate for me to make it bigger), but it says: “The circus arrives without warning. No announcements proceed it. It is simply there, when yesterday, it was not.”
What a quote! I have not read The Night Circus yet, but I want to so bad!
Le Cirque des Reves Candle by Frostbeard Studio
Thoughts: This smells so good! Just like the card says. A mix of caramel popcorn, roasted chestnuts, and bonfire! I love this. These candles are the best.
“Midway Mini Donuts” Lip Balm by Geek Fire Labs
Thoughts: I don’t know if these are supposed to smell or taste like donuts, but mine literally has zero taste and zero smell. Sooo I don’t know! Seems like an okay lip balm though!
Decks of Paper Notepad by Attic Journals
Thoughts: Well this is cute! These are recycled casino cards made into little notepads. Very cute idea. This website has some really cute recycled goodies!
Value: List price is $8.00, but that comes with two decks. So, $4.00 for this!
Fun and Games Page Flags by Girl of all Work
Thoughts: These are really cute! I do wish they were glued to the back of the little pad thought because they kind of fell out of it when I took them out of the package. Still cute though!
Caraval by Stephanie Garber
Summary: A legendary competition. A mesmerizing romance. An unbreakable bond between two sisters.
Scarlett Dragna has never left the tiny island where she and her sister, Tella, live with their powerful, and cruel, father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval – the faraway, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show – are over.
But this year, Scarlett’s long-dreamt-of invitation finally arrives. With the help of a mysterious sailor, Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show. Only, as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend. It turns out that this season’s Caraval revolves around Tella, and whoever finds her first is the winner.
Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. Nevertheless, she becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic. And whether Caraval is real or not, Scarlett must find Tella before the five nights of the game are over or a dangerous domino effect of consequences will be set off, and her beloved sister will disappear forever.
Welcome, welcome to Caraval… beware of getting swept too far away.
Thoughts: I am actually currently reading this book. I am about 70 pages in and really enjoying it so far. I was so excited to get this this month! It was one of my most highly anticipated books of 2017!
