Hello my loves!
I hope you’re all having a great week so far. Today I have my last Wildest Dreams Box unboxing for a while. I am super sad about this, but mortgages are expensive, did you know?! So while I won’t be getting the box for a little while, I highly suggest you do. Also, Augusts theme is Comic Legends and I can’t wait to see what Zoe picks for that one.
The book in this months box was one that I had no clue was coming, but I’m glad it did! The Summer of Us by Cecilia Vinesse is the second book I own by the author, neither of which I have read at this point (whoops)
Aubrey and Rae have been planning their trip around Europe practically from the moment they became BFFs in primary school. And, now, it ought to be the perfect way to spend their last summer together before university.
But things are more complicated at eighteen than they were at ten. There’s Jonah, Aubrey’s seemingly perfect boyfriend, and his best friend Gabe, the boy Aubrey may have accidentally kissed. And there’s Clara, the friend Rae is crushing on, hard, even though there’s no hope because Clara is definitely into guys, not girls.
Five friends. Ten days. Paris, Amsterdam, Prague, Florence, Barcelona. And a messy, complicated, can-this-really-be happening love story, or two … because how could there not be?
As I am working over the summer (as usual) and won’t have much opportunity to travel, this should satisfy my appetite to do so!
The Tea – This months tea is called Summer Loving and is Rose Lemonade flavoured. Yes, ROSE LEMONADE. I can’t wait to try this. Rose is one of my all-time favourite tastes and scents.
The Bath Product – As with all the bath bombs I’ve ever received in these boxes, I used this one immediately. IT SMELT DELICIOUS! If you try to pinpoint the exact smell of summer, this would be it. You can get your hands on the Hawaiian Sunset bath bomb from Pretty Suds here.
The Extras – The extra’s included in the July box were brilliant. If you didn’t know, I am currently on a diet, so the fact that we were given a face mask instead of a sweet treat pleased me greatly! This one is the Super Exfoliating Mask and is suitable for all skin types. Obviously, I’ve used this already too…. It also included some really cool ‘boarding passes’ for all the cities visited in the book! How cute is that?!
As always, I love the Wildest Dreams Box. I’ve had every one since the beginning and am more than a little sad to be ending my subscription for the moment. Let me tell you though, I will definitely be subscribing again as soon as possible. If you’d like to find out more, you can check them out on Twitter.
Peace and pages
