Carrie's book club | Unboxing


As some of you may know, I'm a big fan of Carrie Hope Fletcher and she created a book club box a few months ago. Each month you get a box full of little treats related to a book. This month it was her own wonderful book, All I know now so I had to get my hands on one of the boxes. I wanted to share with you what's inside as I know I have some fellow bookworms who read my blog. I will leave links to the website and bits like that at the end.

The box it came in was black on the outside. I wont show you that as it has my address on it. Now I ordered this late Friday afternoon and it arrived on Saturday morning. I had paid for first class but I didn't expect it so soon as its bank holiday weekend, so thanks treat post for the speedy service. Now when I opened my box I saw a letter. This letter basically tells you what's in the box and is signed "Carrie" at the bottom.

When I took the letter out I was great by the sight of another box, some snazzy purple craft ribbon thing (Yes that is a thing, in mind anyway) and a few other lovely bits and bobs. For starter I was so happy that the ribbon thing was purple, I means its carries favourite colour. Also I was very eager to see what was in the box. I did see Carries video showing what was in it, but its different in person (I sound so weird).

The first think I got out was the really cute and quirky bear hook. It was a little hole on the back so you can pop it on your wall and hang a coat or something on it. I really love this, I would have never thought to get it for myself but now that I have it I feel I need to collect more. This is related to one of carries stories in her book so I wont spoil it for you.

 The next think I got out was this adorable marshmallow cake pop. Its made for marshmallow with an icing fondant on the top. Now I don't normally like things like this but I'm still going too try it, It might take me a few days to get through as I don't normally eat really sweet things like this. Whatever the taste, to me it looks to good to eat.

I really loved the next one. I got some lovely cake toppers. Now I love baking and I just know that the next batch of cupcake will look so cute with these lovely cake toppers on them. 

 The next thing was the gorgeous book mark. I cant wait to swap my other book mark for this one so that I can use it in my copy of all I know now.

Tea! I don't normally venture out of my comfort zone where tea is concerned. I like a nice cup of PG tips and I'm not very adventurous with my flavours. I'm really looking forward to trying these teas and I'm really hoping I might find some new favourites. I also love the packaging of each tea bag. 

Last but certainly not least is this fabulous mug. Now you all know how much I love mugs, I even did a post about all the mugs I have. This cup is the prettiest things Ive even seen and I am a little bit in love with it. I love the fact that's its all black and I also love the anger wings on the side. To me this reminds me a little bit of the weeping angels from doctor who. Its an odd thing to think of but its the first thing that popped into my head when I saw it. I cant wait to use this with some o that delicious tea.

 I got my box from Treatpost. Now I'm not sure how many of this months boxes are left but pop over there to have a little look. Pop on over to Carries book club page to get your box.
