Hey guys! As you can read from the title, this post is going to be an unboxing of February Wonder Girl Box – the first ever box of the Wonder Girl book subscription company! This is also my first ever unboxing of any book subscription box, so let’s just get started!
* About Wonder Girl Box *
Wonder Girl Box is a fairly new monthly book subscription box, which have just launched last February 2017. The thing that caught my eyes when I discovered this subscription box, was their mission.
The main goal of each Wonder Girl box is to empower and celebrate girls. Not only that! For every Wonder Girl box sold, they are going to give back to organizations that are working toward educating girls and women around the world.
*What to Expect Inside The Box *
Every month, Wonder Girl box will send:
- A new Young Adult book release
- 3 to 4 bookish goods
- Items that celebrate girl power
* February Wonder Girl Box *
Disclaimer: I was chosen as one of the first reps of Wonder Girl Box to help them promote throughout social media platforms. I received the February Wonder Girl Box directly from the Wonder Girl team.
Now, back to the actual unboxing! I was so excited when I received my Wonder Girl rep box two weeks after they shipped all their orders. I’ve done unboxing on my Instagram but I also want to post a full detailed unboxing on my blog. So, even if it’s a little late, here is my unboxing!
* February Theme *
The theme of their first ever box was “I Love Me” which is said to be a box that is centered around self-love and acceptance.
* Chosen Organization *
The organization that they chose for their first ever box was CAMFED. It is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to eradicating poverty in Africa by educating females and the empowering young women.
* What’s Inside The Box *
Here’s an unboxing I took for my bookstagram. The February Wonder Girl Box includes:
- Hardcover copy of A Tragic Kind of Wonderful by Eric Lindstrom
- A print by @annmarielewis
- Self Care Index from @freeperiodpress
- Wax melts from @pearlrosecandleco
- Cool “Thou Art The Bomb” socks from @blue_q
- Some candy treats and a letter from Karlynn and Alley (Wonder Girl Box founders)
The first stuff you’ll see when you open the box are the prints. There’s a letter from Wonder Girl Box founders, Karlynn and Alley, which is really sweet. There’s another print with the details about Wonder Girl Box, and their chosen organization for the month.
New Young Adult Book Release
The book for February is a YA new release, A Tragic Kind of Wonderful by Eric Lindstrom.
It was released on February 7th, and it’s in hardcover format. It’s about a girl with a bipolar disorder. I haven’t read this book yet, but I think it will focus on the struggles of having a mental illness, with the touch of typical contemporary young adult story in it. I’m excited to read it! Plus, look at this gorgeous cover! Click the Goodreads button to add it on your Goodreads TBR!
Next one, is this print by @annmarielewis that says “Don’t forget to love yourself“.
This item is one of my favorites inside the box! It’s the Self Care Index from @freeperiodpress. It says “A pocket guide for remembering the things you like to do.” and the contents inside are just super cute! Definitely a helpful booklet when I’m feeling stressed. Plus, there’s a bubble gum pop.
Recently, I’ve discovered how relaxing scented candles are when lit especially when I’m working or painting.
When I opened the box, the first thing that welcomed me was the sweet aroma! Turned out that the scent was coming from these cute rose wax melts from @pearlrosecandleco. They smell like vanilla, with hint of butter and sugar. It also came with a coupon code.
The last item is another favorite which is this pair of socks from @blue_q that says “Thou Art the Bomb”. Love it!
I love this subscription box, and I’ll definitely subscribe in the future. Wonder Girl Box currently halted sending out boxes internationally because of the expensive shipping cost. It is understandable since the company is just starting, and they are surely still adjusting with the business environment. But hopefully, they get back to sending out boxes worldwide very soon!
According to Wonder Girl Box team, the February proceeds was able to send a girl in high school for a whole year which is so amazing!
They already shipped out their March boxes with the theme “Bookish is Beautiful”. And the April box is now open for subscription.
April theme is “Girls are Magic”
Again, I’d like to thank Karlynn and Alley for letting me experience the Wonder Girl power! Thank you for sending out your message all the way to the Philippines!
