Ships To: US for $5.50 and varying costs for international postage (+$14 to Australia)
Mailed Out: first week of each month

Good To Know: The Anything & Everything box is identical to either the Girly Girl OR Manly Man boxes – obviously the GG is more stereotypically feminine while the MM is the opposite. Although to clarify, you still might get jewelry with the MM box (for eg. the November Manly Man box had a key on a chain and December Manly Man box had a lightning bolt necklace and Snitch bracelet)
I received an email confirmation when my package was posted along with a tracking number – mine was posted on the 5th April and made it to Australia a week later on the 12th, which is great!
OVERVIEW OF CONTENTS
Theme: I chose the Girly Girl option, and the theme this month was Beauty & the Beast!
The information card has a pretty poster print on the opposite side, which works wonderfully to liven up my work space. 😀
We also have a handmade ‘enchanted rose‘ and handmade version of Belle’s hair-bow
The final accessory is a statement necklace – and how! I think it might be a bit TOO much of a statement for me, I don’t wear chunky necklaces like this! But it is quite gorgeous, so maybe I can try to incorporate it into my wardrobe…
And the centerpiece of this box, the beautiful new phone case featuring a Beauty & the Beast design! It’s stunning, I love the colors, and the texture of the case is great! (I’m big on texture, if something feels coarse/cheap, I can’t handle it) My phone is still in the Gone With The Wind case from last month, so I’ll keep this as a spare for now.
Worth It? This is my second and last box from Once Upon A Bookcase. I love getting this box, but it’s too expensive to justify keeping! Factoring in the conversion and international shipping, this cost me a total of $55.35 AUD, and unfortunately I can’t maintain that on a monthly basis. 😦
I’d definitely recommend to those lucky ducks in the US who only have to shell out $31.50, or the UK who have a favorable exchange rate (this would cost under 30 pounds, even with shipping).
Personal Rating: 3 out of 5 kitties approve this box!
