Unboxing: Wanderbookbox Ancient Greece

“It’s a very Greek idea, and a very profound one. Beauty is terror. Whatever we call beautiful, we quiver before it.”

Wanderbookbox is a Philippine-based book subscription box focused on travel themed curation of books and bookish merchandise. As you may already know, I have had the pleasure of helping the Wanderbookbox team with the creation of the November box as their ambassador for the month. I had so much fun because the destination is to one of my favorite fictional worlds: Greek Mythology 🏛

I am so thrilled to show you how it all turned out. Let’s proceed to the unboxing ✨

The November box destination is Ancient Greece and had the theme of “Gift from the Gods”. 💫

In above photo: we have a boarding pass, Greece bucketlist, a golden laurel wreath, a note from the BOTM author, and a Greece postcard from @artsbyshai

Here we have an Ancient Greece pendant and the gift from Hermes: a book charm from @fashionartbeautycents

Enjoy the smell of the earth with lovely potpourri, a gift from Hera and Demeter

Make sure you take down useful knowledge on this gift from Athena: custom notepad from @notera_ph

Write secret messages that’ll only be seen with this gift from Apollo: an invisible blacklight pen

Fight like Artemis with his gift of bow and arrow

A gift from Dionyseus: a “Wine Not?” bookmark from @thewanderprint

Let Zeus remind you to take charge of your life with this lightning bolt charm from @pixelprincessph

Keep your coins or jewelry safe in this mermaid pouch: a gift from Aphrodite

A gift from Hades: a bouncing eye ball from the three Witches of Fate

Have the smell of the ocean at your reach with this gift from Poseidon: a custom made candle from @bookish.light

This is my first ever bookish candle so I’m super happy! Is this the start of a new collection? We’ll see 😍

And drumroll please for the BOTM:

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller ✨

This book has been on my wishlist for so long! Truly a gift from the gods!!

I hope you loved this unboxing as much as I did. Wanderbookbox has yet again delivered on their promise of travel through books! ✈️

Let me leave you with a little tip: their next destination is RUSSIA and if I were you, I’d hurry to get one! Visit their IG page @wanderbookbox to check if there are still slots left, because they do sell out fast. Order through my link so you’ll get FREE SHIPPING. You’re welcome! 💋

“We think we have many desires, but in fact we have only one.

“What is it?”

“To live.

To live forever.”
