Dream Crate: YA Feminism Crate
The people over at LootCrate have been collaborating with bloggers to design their own crate based on any theme they would like to see. I was so excited by this idea as I love the idea of LootCrate and have watched so many unboxing videos and blog posts online of different bloggers crates, that designing my own sounded like fun.
I decided to go with a YA Feminism Crate. Encompassing two things I am passionate about- YA literature and equality. Lets dive into the crate I would create;
So the first item in my crate would be books of course! Only Ever Yours by Louise O'Neill and Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne. But these books are two of my all time favourite books that I've read, written by the most amazing and well spoken women I've had the pleasure of meeting and talking to IRL.
I'm not going to go into too much detail as to what these books are about (asides from that they are fundamental, in my eyes, YA feminist thought provoking literature) so click on the covers to see my review of the novels!
Frida Funko Pop!
I would also include a funko pop, which often come with these subscription boxes, of the inspirational and amazing Frida Kahlo. Frida is an inspiration. She defied cultural and societal norms and gender stereotypes in favour of self expression and being happy in her own skin. Her art was also extremely personal and moving and she aimed for personal success and happiness. A true inspiration.
Feminist Slogan T-Shirt & Mug;
A cool and comfy tshirt to help promote that message of equality of the sexes, self love and happiness in self at all times. An uplifting and motivational quote to keep you inspired through out your day.
Also a cool mug to keep you safe in the knowledge that your sex, size, age etc,. does not and should not stop you from striving to achieve greatness. You can be fierce and successful everyday and everyone has the ability within to achieve greatness. One of my favourite quotes from the Bard himself.
And lastly, a few funky badges to help promote your feminist agenda in a stand out way. Stick these on a beat up leather jacket, oversize denim jacket, a backpack or wherever to promote the message of equality and girl power.
Let me know what else you think should be included in this crate and what you think of my theme in the comments below?
Also link me to your post on your Lootcrate theme too! I'd love to read it.
