Unboxing: Fairyloot's "Hidden Worlds" (January 2023)

Here comes the first Fairyloot unboxing of 2023! This box was okay in my opinion and I'm not sure if that's because of the content or because I've been subscribed for over a year now so my standards are a bit higher. That being said, the book is stunning and there are a couple items that I am super excited about. 

The first item that was included in this month's box was a hair scrunchie inspired by We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal and designed by It's a beautiful scrunchie and the material is gorgeous (perfect for my frizzy hair). However, I'm not sure when I'll get to wearing it. It seems to be more of a special occasion scrunchie and not one I'd just wear to my daily work shift due to the tails on it. 

The second item was a sleep mask inspired by this month's book, Spice Road by Maiya Ibrahim, and designed by This is also an absolutely stunning design and the material is very soft and plush. I think this is probably one of the best sleep masks I've ever owned (though I've not tested it yet) just based on the plush feel of it so far. I think this could definitely come in handy on a road trip or travel day.
The next item was a qadir themed enamel pin inspired by The Stardust Thief by Chelsea Abdullah and designed by @no0nedesigns. This is a beautiful pin and I'm still happy that Fairyloot continues to include items inspired by past books they've included. I will definitely be adding this to my pin banner soon.

The last item is the first in their new Magical Tomes collectible series: a secret book. These are hollowed out books designed to secretly hold things while blending in with the shelves. This specific one was designed by @chattynora and is themed "The Beginner's Guide to Portal Magic". Now, I wasn't a subscriber for the original secret books so I never got them, but already I know that I prefer the design of these to the original ones. I can't wait to stick this on my shelf and I think it will come in handy for storing all of their tarot cards.

Speaking of tarot cards, this month we had Jacks as The Devil and Evangeline as The World. Both characters are from Once Upon a Broken Heart by Stephanie Garber and were illustrated by the continually awing @arz28. Once again, these cards are absolutely stunning. However, I don't have any plans at the moment to read OUABH so I think I'll be keeping these cards mainly so that I can have a complete tarot card collection in the future.

The book of the month was Spice Road by Maiya Ibrahim and this is one of the most beautiful editions Fairyloot have done. This edition has an exclusive cover, digital sprayed edges, artwork on the endpages, a reversible dust jacket, a foiled hardcover design, and is signed. This is again one of the times that I truly prefer the Fairyloot cover to the original. I'm definitely intrigued by this book and I'm very happy to have another gorgeous edition. 

This month's box was okay to me. I like all the items but I think the only ones that will get used are the secret tome and the enamel pin. I like scrunchies for everyday use but not with long tails, so I'm not sure when I'll find a time to wear this one. I do like the sleep mask and may bring it on a flight in the future, but it's not something that I'll get daily use out of. The book, however, was stunning and I'm definitely interested to read it. 

Thanks for reading!
