Another absolutely amazing box from Fairyloot. This months theme was Magic in the City and again the items just get better and better. I'd figured out what the book was going to be for this month and couldn't wait to get my hands on it!
**Taken from the book**
Eighteen-year-old Gu Miyoung has a secret. She's a gumiho - a nine-tailed fox who survives by consuming the energy of men. But she's also half-human and has a soft spot for people. So she won't kill indiscriminately. With the help of a shaman, Miyoung only takes the lives of men who have committed terrible crimes. Devouring their life force is a morbid kind of justice...or so she tells herself.
But killing men no one would ever miss in bustling modern-day Seoul also helps Miyoung keep a low profile. She and her mother protect themselves by hiding in plain sight. That is until Miyoung crosses paths with a handsome boy her age as he's being attacked by a goblin in the woods. She breaks her mother's cardinal rule - revealing herself and her nine tails - to save Jihoon from certain death. In the process, she loses her fox bead - her gumiho soul. Without it, she will die.
When Miyoung and Jihoon next meet, there's no doubt that they are drawn to each other. But their tenuous romance could be over before it even begins, as Miyoung's efforts to restore her fox bead by the next full moon ensnares them in a generations-old feud, forcing Miyoung to choose between her immortal life and Jihoon.
I adore this mat, I'm just a little scared about actually getting tea on it! It's themed around the book of the month and was designed by Obsidiayan.
I've been sat smelling this candle for the past ten minutes. It smells like the inside of a bakery...otherwise known as the best smell ever. This candle is based on the Princess of Disi from A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer. Its official notes are cotton, cinnamon and vanilla and was created by A Court of Candles.
I can't remember the last time I had a fortune cookie! This was such a cute idea to include and each fortune was a quote from a book.
The next two tarot cards feature Luna Lovegood and I'm 99% sure that it's Ron Weasley. The art on these is by loweana.art.
So that was my July Fairyloot Unboxing!
