Owlcrate April 2017: Head Over Heels

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! I hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday so far and are looking forward to a fun and exciting day.  We've had some gloomy weather the past few days, but that has made for some relaxing days {with lots of reading time}.

Today's post I wanted to share my April 2017 Owlcrate! This month's theme is:

Head Over Heels

If I am being honest, I was not sure how much I would enjoy this box considering I tend to shy away from Young Adult Contemporary books.  But I also know that I need to make it a point to try other genres and I enjoyed P.S. I Like You by Kasie West so I thought why not give it a try?

 If you are not sure what Owlcrate is, it is a monthly subscription book-themed box that comes with a Young Adult Book and other fun theme-related trinkets.  Some of my favorite trinkets have been candles, bath bombs and jewelry, but there are all kinds of great items available in each themed box.

For April, our theme was Head Over Heels so of course the items are young-ish and super fun.  Here is a list of the items I got in my box:
  • Pride and Prejudice Headband from Storiarts // I am IN LOVE with this headband.  I think I have worn it almost every day since the box came in two weeks ago.  It is so soft, so fun and a great way to make a bad hair day look cute.  Justin thinks I look like "I Love Lucy" when I wear it and pile my hair on top of my head.  
  • Key Chain from Bookworm Boutique // I am not a huge fan of key chains, but this one is super cute.  
  • Bax & Simon Candle from Novelly Yours // I haven't lit this one yet, but it is raspberry scented so I am sure it will be great.  Their candles burn so evenly and smell so nice.  I actually think I want to get a full-sized one.
  • Art Print from Evie Bookish // So unfortunately I have not read the book they are referencing in this artwork, but the art is so beautiful and I plan to hang it up in my office at home.  She has all kinds of other beautiful art and items for sale so definitely check it out!
  • Umberland sneak peek from Wendy Spinale // The book releases May 9th! It is the second book after Everland and I am excited it is coming out this month! 
  • Anna and the French Kiss Tea from The Tea Spot // I'm excited to give this a try - it's chocolate and cherry. 
  • The Upside of Unrequited from Becky Albertalli // Here is the synopsis: Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love. No matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.  Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly's totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie's new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. If Molly can win him over, she'll get her first kiss and she'll get her twin back.  There's only one problem: Molly's coworker, Reid. He's a chubby Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there's absolutely no way Molly could fall for him.  Right?

I love the headband and hope to get one or two more for future wear! And I am excited to break out this candle in my office or kitchen.  I haven't decided yet!
