Books Fairy Loot Unboxings

June Fairyloot

July 30, 2018

Apologies for the rather late unboxing, vacation and life in general derailed all the blogging plans I had. However, I hope this was worth the wait. The box certainly was. I think this *might* be my favourite one to date. June's theme was Rebels in Ballgowns and my god it was perfect.
