Unboxing: Dreamy & Co's "Welcome to Crescent City" Box

Today I'm here with something that I haven't done in a unboxing! I rarely buy book boxes anymore, as I usually don't have a need for most of the items that come in them, but I do occasionally splurge on one. Usually the book boxes I buy nowadays are those that have one fandom only, which is exactly what Dreamy & Co does! When they announced the June box, I knew that I had to jump on it. 

I absolutely love this box. I think that you really get good quality items with beautiful designs at an excellent price point. What really made me get this box was the fact that it was only $20 whereas other boxes with all of these goodies usually sell for much higher. I also was, of course, in love with the theme which was all centered around House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas! I feel like I've rambled enough so far so let's go ahead and just dive right in! (Tip: to see the pictures better on their own, click on them and it will give you a slide-show of the enlarged images)

So Dreamy & Co has these super cute boxes that they ship in every month. It's also a perfect sized box for storing art prints, pins, and other small merch items. I plan on keeping this box to use for my Crescent City-themed merch until I have actual bookshelves again!

When you open the box, you're greeted with the spoiler card. I avoided looking at it until after I was done going through the box, but there's information about each item and who the artists were. Plus, the monthly theme artwork is just really pretty.

The first thing that I pulled out of this box was a gorgeous pin banner designed by Evie Bookish with art and the quote "Light it up." Not only is this pin banner stunning, but it's also huge! I am definitely going to be displaying all of my Sarah J. Maas themed pins on this one in the future. It could also work just as a mini tapestry or wall hanging.

The next item that I saw was this gorgeous candle from Flick the Wick. It's theme was Lunathion (the name of the city in the book) and smells like red currant, wood, fig, and obsidian salt. I'm not a scent person so for those who don't know what those smell like together, I'd say that it's a woodsy, yet sweet and salty scent--like something you'd find in a cabin. I really like the smell and I'm very excited to use it in pictures!

The next item that I pulled out was a coaster that has the quote, "Loyal unto death and beyond." It's so gorgeous and I absolutely love the significance behind this quote! This coaster was designed by Dreamy & Co themselves. I actually use coasters quite a bit. I don't use specific sets, but I have a few coasters that I use at my desk and my nightstands and I have a feeling this will be one of them!

Up next was a gorgeous enamel pin designed by Azura Arts. It has the quote, "Through love all is possible," which is one of my favorite quotes from the book. I can't wait to use this one in pictures as well! I have another pin with this quote on it from Bloomsbury, but whereas that one is more simplistic, this new pin has artwork and is beautiful.

The next item was a double-sided sturdy bookmark designed by Dreamy & Co. On one side it says, "You see everything I am, and you don't run away from it." The other side has the quote, "Then let the world know that my first act of freedom was to help my friends." I love both of these quotes and think that this bookmark is so pretty! I can't wait to use it in pictures and for my Crescent City rereads.

Then I pulled out a double-sided wooden bookmark, also designed by Dreamy & Co. This is absolutely stunning and I am so in love with it. One side says, "To live, To love, knowing that it might all vanish tomorrow. It makes everything that much more precious" (there was a typo on this quote on the bookmark, but the company has been in contact with two options for rectifying it). The other side says, "My friend are with me, and I am not afraid." When I tell you the angst I felt reading that quote!

Lastly, there were two double-sided sturdy prints. On one side of each print there was artwork of Hunt and Bryce designed by BxRomance and on the other sides there was quote art designed by Dreamy & Co. I really like the artwork of the characters (it's some of the best I've seen). The quotes one each print were, "Bound by Blood. Tempted by Desire. Unleashed by Destiny," and, "The power shall always belong to those who give their lives to the city." I love both of these quotes and can't wait to use these prints in pictures!

Overall, I am very satisfied with this box. An enamel pin and a candle alone can sometimes cost $20+ so the fact that we got those items plus two more items, two bookmarks, and two prints is really amazing. I am also very happy with the quality of the items in this box and the artwork. I will definitely be buying from Dreamy & Co again when they have another fandom that I'm interested in!
