Listen, if you’ve seen my bookstagram it’s pretty clear I have a bit of a candle obsession. At first it was Bath & Body Works, now it’s the vast array of bookish candle companies producing ridiculous amounts of scents. I’m such a sucker for them all!

A majority of my candles comes from the ever wonderful Novelly Yours. There’s so many different fandoms, sets, and exciting monthly exclusives to choose from. Plus jar candles are coming soon.

I also adore The Melting Library, Meraki Candles, and Icey Designs. Their packaging is just absolutely gorgeous with beautiful colors and brilliant scent combinations. Other faves include Novel Heartbeat Creations and Wick & Fable.

I now apologize to all the wallets out there that have been harmed by this post. Mine can be heard screaming in the distance.

Are you a candle fan? Who are some of your favorite shops?

 In this Owning a Piece of the Page, I’m highlighting my ever growing collection of Beauty and the Beast goodies and even giving some thoughts on the live action remake that was just released. Let’s start with the merch first!

Look at all those cute figures! POP Funkos always pull me in and I’ve got two of Belle in her yellow gown. I also adore the Beast in his winter wear, complete with bird friends. I also couldn’t help myself with this Belle ornament where she’s reading by the fountain or the stain glass compact mirror.

What would any collection be without bookmarks and stickers? I picked up these gorgeous ones from Nerdy Girl Designs on Etsy. Look how adorable all the characters are! Another Etsy find is from one of my favorite artists Karen Hallion with this notecard of the Doctor inviting Belle into the Tardis.

As a sucker for all things pretty I couldn’t help but jump on this Evie Seo notebook design on Society 6. Rounding out my collection is the book itself. This one is designed by the incomparable MinaLima full of fun, interactive paper products.

Film Thoughts

So this weekend I went to see the new Beauty and the Beast movie and have to say I really enjoyed it. The hype was so real and while this adaptation was nothing ground breaking, the nostalgia held me enthralled. I loved the added background for a bunch of the characters and the darker aspects of the story. Plus the music was exquisite, but I wanted more from Emma Watson’s voice. And Belle’s reaction to the library was pretty much the highlight of everything. Overall I was definitely pleased with the film and I’m glad I got to see it on the big screen.

Are you a fan of Beauty and the Beast? Do you have a collection of goodies like mine? Already seen the live action remake? Let me know all your thoughts in the comments below!

After my first stretch of Harry Potter posts for this feature I took a short break. Now I’m back with another edition, this time highlighting the popular bookish subscription box OwlCrate! I first discovered this company on bookstagram from the many photos promoting their boxes and I knew I had to try them out.

OwlCrate sends out a monthly YA focused box containing one recently released book and around 3 to 5 bookish goodies. Often times there are author and publisher exclusives as well as items created specifically for the box.

When I discovered the May 2016 box was going to be Steampunk themed, I jumped at the chance to finally get one of these boxes. I’ve been fascinated by Steampunk as a genre and culture for a while and knew this was the perfect one to start off with. Continue reading
