Rebecca Reviewed It: Accio! Box | The Steadfast Friend

June’s Accio Subscription Box centers around Ronald Weasley, the Steadfast Friend. From the start, Ron’s friendship with Harry Potter was a major part of the storyline.

Now, if you have not opened your June’s Accio! box, please stop reading. The rest of the blog contains major spoilers.

The Steadfast Friend Unboxing

Deluminator Print

An Accio! box exclusive, the print is a great addition to my wall. Ron knew he wanted to return the moment he left. The deluminator brought him back to his friends.

Angry Letter Sticker Notes

Who does not remember the howler? The sticky notes are a cute copy of the howler sent to Ron by his mother, Molly. I will definitely use the sticky notes. I am always jotting down stuff to remember. Now, only if I can remember to grab my lists before I leave the house.

Another Weasley

The Sorting Hat knew exactly where to put “Another Weasley”. The hologram sticker is a great way to remember the Sorting Hat’s choice. I love stickers. (Yes, I am still a kid at heart). I plan on putting my sticker on my address book.

Protector Stained Glass Pin

The second in the series, the pin shows off Ron’s Patronus, a Jack Russell Terrier. Featuring both the Golden and Silver Trios, I cannot wait to view all six of the pins together.

Chudley Team Tee

The orange tee displays Ron’s favorite Quidditch team, the Chudley Cannons. I like the simple sports team design. I will keep this tee to wear. Often, if I do not like an item, I give the product away. Now, the tee shirts are true to size and made from high-quality material.

Ron’s Sweater

Who wouldn’t want a Weasley sweater? The Accio! box exclusive is a bottle sleeve. Perfect item to keep my pop cold on a warm summer day in mid-Michigan.

Invisibility Booster

The Invisibility Booster is actually a car outlet USB charger. The red button item is my favorite in the box. I cannot wait to use this in my car.

Am I going to purchase the next Accio! box? Yes, I plan to continue my monthly subscription. I want to collect the entire set of pins.

Rebecca Reviewed It: Accio Box | The Brightest Witch

The Brightest Witch Accio Box is actually from May. I am just behind with my reviews. Of course, the Brightest Witch refers to Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series. Where would Ron and Harry be without Hermione?

If you have not opened your box from May, please stop reading. The rest of the blog contains spoilers.

The Brightest Witch Unboxing

Yes, I am a fan of Accio box. For those who asked, I pay for the subscription myself. I just like to share my findings.

Wand Bookmark

As a person who loves to read, I welcome new bookmarks. The faux-leather bookmark is perfect with Hermione’s embroidered wand.

Bluebell Flames Drinking Jar

During the summer time, I cannot have too many tumblers. The Accio exclusive jar shaped container is perfect for holding ice tea. I admit, without an accurate description, I would not have guessed bluebell flames.

Hermione Print

I love fan art. The print is Sarah Brown’s version of Hermione. I will definitely display this art on my wall.

Essence of Dittany

The little glass roller contains lavender and peppermint essential oils. Together, the oils produce a sense of relaxation and rejuvenation.

Stained Glass Pin

First, in the series, the pin has Hermione’s Patronus, an otter. The pin is exclusive to Accio. Each pin from the Golden and Silver Trio will produce a circle.

Numerology & Grammatica Notebook

Hermione always had books. This is a replica of one of her textbooks. The faux-leather notebook is my favorite in the May Accio Box. I am always writing down my thoughts. I can never have too many notebooks.

Will I order this subscription box again? Yes. In fact, I already received June’s box.

Rebecca Reviewed It: Feb. LitJoy’s Young Adult Book Box Subscription

Journey to Belong is the February theme of LitJoy’s Young Adult Book Box subscription. I admit I am well over the age of “young adult”. But I love these subscription boxes from LitJoy.  I currently subscribe to the young adult and the magical subscription boxes. In my young adult quarterly book box subscription, I receive the full crate items. I get the book, related theme items, and usually the add-ons.

Here’s a first peek at the contents of the Journey to Belong subscription crate. If you have not received yours yet, do not go any further. Major spoilers ahead!

I love opening these boxes. The subscription boxes are my treat. I have recently subscribed to a couple more from different companies. I will share my thoughts on those as they arrive.

Contents Included in the Journey to Belong box.

Are you ready?

New York Institutes Photo Strip

Who doesn’t love photo booth images? I remember squeezing into booths with my friends just to make silly faces before the camera snapped the photo. These photos are from our favorites in the Shadowhunters series.

Rapunzel Spoon Rest

This a cute little spoon rest. Currently, the item is not in the kitchen but on my shelf.

Lady Whistledown’s Society Papers Lip Balm

If you have been following the storyline of the Bridgeton family, you already know about Lady Whistledown.

Stalking Jack the Ripper Manicure Set

I love the little manicure set.

His Dark Materials Candle

I am such a fan of candles. This one has glitter.

A Dark Shade of Magic Teacup and Saucer

Teacups and saucers are part of the young adult subscription boxes. I am becoming a big fan of these themed cups.

Here’s a better view of the saucer.

The Golden Flame

I cannot wait to read this book. One of my favorite items in these boxes is the books. If you are a fan of different books, I recommend joining the Lunacorns. When you are a member, you get the normal deals and exclusives like most groups. But you also get access to the Lunacorn group on Facebook.

The best part of the group is the book recommendations. There are so many books and series that are new to me. Without the group, I would not have expanded my reading to different authors.

Umbrella Academy Washi Tape

My penpals are going to love the Umbrella Academy-themed washi tape on their next letters.

The Add-Ons

The add-ons are additional purchases to the LitJoy Crate Young Adult Book Subscription boxes.

New York Institute Polaroid Enamel Pin

New York Institute Rosie Puzzle

The puzzles are fantastic. I am hoping to put them together to eventually hang on my wall.  The one from this box is officially licensed merchandise, created by @rosiethorns88. I love the artwork.

So did you get the box? I would like to know your opinions. My favorite item? Tough choice! But I think, the cup and saucer are my favorite. I am starting a new collection.

Rebecca Reviewed It: The Wizarding Trunk Other World Beast & Arithmancy Crate

I recently received my second crate from The Wizarding Trunk. The title of the crate was Other World Beast and Arithmancy. Here are my thoughts on the contents.

First Peek! Now, if you are still waiting on your trunk, stop here! There are spoilers ahead.

 

  1. Tree Lice: Pure Blood Apothecary created this wonderful Tree Lice potion bottle. I love the potion label. I could definitely vision this as part of a potion master’s supply cabinet.
  2. Today’s Lesson Pin: Sorry for the poor quality photo. The pin slides to one side to review the lesson of the day. I love the pin. But, I can honestly say I would never wear it. The Lesson Pin will be displayed with others that I cannot depart with yet will not wear.
  3. Magical Platypus Wooden Print: J.P. Misslecrow rendition is absolutely stunning.
  4. Leprechaun Gold: Who wouldn’t want some gold? But will this one disappear?
  5. Flesh-Eating Slug Repellent: The Flesh-Eating Slug Repellent’s potion bottle is my favorite item in the entire box. I admit I stared at this for a long time. I cannot wait to use the little green bottle in some upcoming photos.
  6. Negative Energy Reed Diffuser Oil: I am excited to use this Negative Energy Reed Diffuser Oil. The item came with reeds, which will soak up the oil to distribute a scent throughout my home.
  7. Other Worldly Beast Info-Grams: Twillings & Tattings did a fantastic job creating these two World Beast Info-Grams.
  8. Skeletal Horse Paperweight: I am not a paperweight user. But, I did like this skeletal horse paperweight. I plan to just display the paperweight on my shelf. Do you use a paperweight? Am I the only odd person who doesn’t?
  9. Arithmancy Study Guide & Information Sheet: Danny at Wizardry Workshop designed this wonderful guide and information sheet.
  10. Other Worldly Creature Book Cover: Love the foiling on this book cover, designed by Danny at Wizardry Workshop. Now, the cover fits the American edition of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
  11. Antiqued 9 Sided Arithmancy Dice: The 9 sided arithmancy dice looks old with antique coloring. What mystery does the dice hold for you?
  12. Notebook for Other Worldly Creatures: The notebook is my second favorite in the box. I just love the design-perfect for photos or cosplay.

Will I get the next crate? As of right now, my membership is canceled. I do love the products. But my budget is a little tight. I want to have extra money for the upcoming holiday season.

Personal Review: Geek Gear Wizardry Box

I do not write too many personal reviews. In my opinion, everyone has the right to decide if a product is right for you or not.  With that being said, I am a fan of subscription boxes. The monthly or bi-monthly crates are filled with various items. Depending on your personal tastes, a crate may contain beauty items, food from around the globe, movie memorabilia, and much more. The best aspect of these crates, you never know what is inside. The crates are a pleasant monthly surprise.

Today’s crate just made me smile from first glance to viewing the final product. So I just had to share my excitement with all of you.

 

First, sneak peek…I admit I opened this one slowly. I took pictures as I pulled out each item.

T-shirts are always part of these Wizardy Geek Gear boxes. I absolutely love getting a new t-shirt every month. Of course, my t-shirt collection is growing more than I could ever wear in a year. The August box contains an exclusive beasts t-shirt.

Love this shirt!

Other items in this box include:

Cornish Pixies Tea

I love loose tea. I was so happy when Geek Gear started putting teas in the monthly boxes.

Living in Michigan, I can never have too many socks. Michigan winters can get really cold.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A new mug…

So exciting, this is my first Gringotts Mug. I cannot wait to add this to my collection.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A bright new print…

Licensed and exclusive, the print will look great on my bedroom wall.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was so happy to see a wand in this month’s box. I love the Geek Gear wands. Each is uniquely made and durable.

The wand’s specifications.

I love the skeleton wand. Reminds me of my favorite holiday, Halloween.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Saving the best for last, the signed owl art poster was my favorite in the August Wizardry Geek Gear Box. I just love this print. I am actually going to hang the poster in my living room.

So my overall review of the August Geek Gear Wizardry Box is 4-stars, my highest rating. I felt like my birthday or Christmas came early today.
