June Owlcrate Unboxing: Make it Out Alive

Zombies? Check.

Survival Stickers? Check.

I am ready for this month’s Owlcrate unboxing… are you? This months theme is Make It Out Alive and it contains 2 complete books. Which makes it a winning box in my opinion.  Read on to find out what was in the box and my thoughts and then click the link below to check out the unboxing video. My kids assisted with the unboxing and they have a special request for you at the end of it.

The complete contents of the box… except the magnet. I stuck it on my metal lamp and forgot to photograph it until later.

My favorite non book item was bath bomb  from the Fizzy Fairy Apothecary. ( I adore that name!)  This bath bomb was created exclusively for Owlcrate.  It was amazing and  turned my bath water a fizzy DARK green. So dark  that it would have been easy to let the silver tree charm inside it go unnoticed if I had not an inkling that there was something inside it.

The box also included a bookmark, a magnet, the author letter, and the signed bookplate. Isn’t this magnet adorable? I love the quote.

My daughters favorite item is the zombie sleep mask. It has already disappeared into her room along with the multi colored pen that came in last months box.

Joshua liked this month’s button and the sleep mask as well.

The box also included survival themed stickers. Now that I have started reading the book the theme and related items are clicking into place. Although, I have not deciphered the meaning of the iron on patch that was included.

On to the books. The featured book is The Sandcastle Empire. I am already on page 120 and it is keeping me interested, but as of right now I don’t think it will go on my list of favorite books for the year.

The second book is a paperback called New World Rising and I am excited to start reading.

Next month’s theme is  wanderlust. The box will include a licensed product from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I get the feeling that I am going to have to fight to keep that item from my kids.

Which brings me to the challenge I mentioned at the beginning of the post.

I made a deal with my kids and you get to help them out.  I told them that when we get 10 views of our video and 10 new subscribers to my YouTube channel I will order them there very own Owlcrate Jr and let them make there own unboxing video. They have been begging me for months to order them a box so let’s make it happen!

Unboxing: Ipsy Glam Bag

Guess what happens when you hug a book to your chest while recording the video review of it ?

Well, if you are clutching said book on top your microphone you get fuzzy audio. That brings me to today’s video. Rather, the video you are not getting today.

This not a review of Heartless. The book review video could not be saved though editing. Yes, it is the second time I have recorded it and failed. Let’s move on.

The last thing I want to do is skip uploading a video for you . Luckily, my daughter and I made this video of our Ipsy Glam Bag unboxing for fun. While it is not the normal sort of video I post it is free of fuzzy audio and that’s gotta count for something right?

So,What is Ipsy?

If you love cosmetics and trying new products at a budget price you will love IPSY Glam Bags. They are a monthly subscription box that includes a make up bag, samples & full size cosmetic products that are picked for you based on the profile you fill out.

I love it because you can change your profile questionnaire and  the types of products you would like to receive at at any time.

For $10 a month you will receive full size products and generous sample size products. I have found several new products that I love via my IPSY Glam bag. It gives me the opportunity to try out a wide variety of colors and products with out breaking the bank.

The samples are generous sizes. I pack my favorite sample when I travel. It saves me space and money.
