Litcube – July 2016

Litcube this July was an absolutely gorgeous box filled with pieces from one of the most well-loved classic fairytales, Peter Pan.

 Let me start by saying this box was gorgeous.  I wasn’t really sure what to expect when they announced the theme was Never Grow Up, but I was blown away by this box.  Way more than I anticipated.

I was never a big Peter Pan girl but with all the retellings coming out, it’s only fitting that it is time for a box to feature such a well-loved classic.

The first item was the book, a newly released copy of The Neverland Wars by Audrey Greathouse.  It also came with a signed bookplate which is always a plus for me.  This book is perfect for the theme and has a stunning cover.  The synopsis reads:
“Magic can do a lot—give you flight, show you mermaids, help you taste the stars, and… solve the budget crisis? That’s what the grown-ups will do with it if they ever make it to Neverland to steal its magic and bring their children home.

However, Gwen doesn’t know this. She’s just a sixteen-year-old girl with a place on the debate team and a powerful crush on Jay, the soon-to-be homecoming king. She doesn’t know her little sister could actually run away with Peter Pan, or that she might have to chase after her to bring her home safe. Gwen will find out though—and when she does, she’ll discover she’s in the middle of a looming war between Neverland and reality.

She’ll be out of place as a teenager in Neverland, but she won’t be the only one. Peter Pan’s constant treks back to the mainland have slowly aged him into adolescence as well. Soon, Gwen will have to decide whether she’s going to join impish, playful Peter in his fight for eternal youth… or if she’s going to scramble back to reality in time for the homecoming dance.”

This book as a whole sounds absolutely amazing and I’m super excited to get into it soon!

The next item was an exclusive, silver ring that read Faith, Trust and on the inside was engraved with the words Pixie Dust, as well as some little stars on it as well.  This ring was a little hard to squeeze, but adjustable if done correctly – yay for fitting my tiny fingers!

Megpies contributed to this month’s Litcube with a snackable, a Handmade, All-Natural Artisan Tarte.  They look like a poptart but taste a ton better.  And they’re better for you!  Unfortunately mine was a bit broken by the time it got to me but it didn’t alter the taste at all – delicious!

Lexy Olivia has been featured in quite a few of my boxes lately, and her work never ceases to amaze me.  This time, she’s included a watercolor print of the words, Never Grow Up.  This 4×6 print is absolutely beautiful and such lovely quality – this is something I’ll definitely have displayed on my bookshelf!

Also included was a Litcube exclusive Peter Pan quote bag, which read:
The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.

This bag is such great quality – it’s a thick canvas material as well as includes a zippered closure.  This is one of the most durable bags I’ve received from a subscription box and love the quote itself. This was definitely a winner!

A beautiful Tinkerbell inspired keychain was also in the box, covered in gorgeous multicolored stones.  I’m not sure how well this would hold up getting banged around in my purse, but fingers crossed it does because it’s way too pretty not to use.

Finally, there was also a pair of Litcube exclusive sunglasses (not pictured).  These weren’t listed on the card so I assume they were a bonus item, and though not my style, definitely a lovely extra touch.

Overall this month’s Litcube was gorgeous.  So many wonderful items, and for only $34.95 and free shipping within the US, it really can’t be beat.  I am so thrilled this was their theme this month and I’m equally excited for next month’s Mermaid themed box!
