The first item is a t-shirt. I love their t-shirts. They are so soft. This month the shirt has the quote “leave one wolf alive and the sheep are never safe” and this is a Arya Stark quote from Game of Thrones. I love Arya. She is a bad ass female. 

IMG_1352

The next item in this box is a poster. The quote says “you’re a daughter of the words…a girl with a story to tell”. This is a Mia Corvere quote from Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. I think this poster is absolutely beautiful. I love the typography, the colour scheme and the quote. 

IMG_1350

Another item is a print. It says “when the world owed you nothing, you demanded something of it anyway” and that is a Inej Ghafa quote from Crooked Kingdom. I love the white background and the purple text. 

IMG_1345

Another item in this month’s box is a two sided bookmark. On one side it has a illustration of Okoye from the Black Panther movie\comic books. On the other side it says “just because something works doesn’t mean it can’t be improved” and this is a Shuri quote from the Black Panther movie. 

IMG_1342

 Also in this box is a sticker. The sticker says “sir, I think you have a problem with your brain being missing”. This is a quote from Zoe Washburne from the show Firefly. I love the design of this sticker and the quote. It is very sassy. 

IMG_1344

The colour in postcard is the next item in this box. This month’s postcard has Daenerys Targaryen on it. I will absolutely be colouring this in. 

IMG_1349

In addition, another item is this mini print of Manon Blackbeak from Throne of Glass. I love the dragon and the dark hues in this print.

May 2018 Nerdy Post Unboxing

Hello lovelies. Today’s blog post is all about what I got in this month’s Nerdy Post box. This month’s theme is Sci-Fi and I am so excited to see what this box has in store. Nerdy Post is a bookish monthly subscription box that features all book\movie\t.v. show inspired items. Nerdy post does not send out books in this subscription box which I think sets it a part from every other subscription box. There are three different boxes you can get. The first is the Nerdy Post Lite which has 6 items. The second is the original Nerdy Post which has 10 items including a t-shirt. The final box you can get is the Ultimate Nerdy Post box and it includes 13 items including a t-shirt. I purchased the Original Nerdy Post with the T-Shirt. Please leave me a comment below letting me know what your favourite item in this month’s box is. 

IMG_1140

IMG_1141

The first thing that I see in the box is the t-shirt for this month. The quote on it says “I would have lived in peace, but my enemies brought me war.” This is a quote from the book Red Rising. I love the design of this shirt. The colour of Mars is so bold, I like how the ship looks likes it moving and how the text is fading. 

IMG_1142

Then we have the spoiler card for this month. On the front it has a beautiful designed print. The quote says “there are no limits except for those that we impose on ourselves.” That quote was from the television show Fringe. I love the contrast between the red and blue. I also enjoy that the word “for” is in the middle and that it is half of one colour and half of the other. 

IMG_1143

The next item in this box is a lapel pin. On it it says space pirate with a astronaut on it. The pin was inspired by the Martian. I love the ombre effect of this pin and how it isn’t  just a circle like most pins. It adds uniqueness to it. 

IMG_1144

IMG_1145

After that we have a two sided bookmark. The first side says “‘That sounds like something out of science fiction’… ‘we live in a spaceship dear.’” This quote is from Firefly. I love the two typographies of this quote. It is simplistic. On the second side it says “the right words can change the world.” This quote is from Ender’s Game. I like the design of this side as well. The picture of the earth on the side makes it pop. Nerdy Post bookmarks are my favourite to use because they feel so soft and buttery. This will be put to good use. 

IMG_1148

Another item that I see is this keychain. The quote on it says “Brought product to surface of Mars. It stopped working. 0/10.” This quote is from the Martian. I enjoy this keychain because it is simplistic and funny at the same time. 

IMG_1149

In this month’s box we also get four travel the universe postcards inspired from different planets from sci fi movies, tv. Shows and books. The first one is inspired by the planet planet Gallifrey from Doctor Who. The next is inspired by Valkyrie Spires from Red Rising. The third is inspired by Crait from Star Wars. The final post card is inspired by Magrathea from The Hitchhiker’s guide to the Galaxy. These postcards are absolutely beautiful and cohesive. This was such a cleaver idea. 

IMG_1146

Next item is a mini print that says “you deserve every star in the galaxy laid out at your feet”. This quote is from Illuminae. The typography is beautiful an I love the galaxy background. 

IMG_1151

After that we have the colour in postcard that Nerdy Post provides us in every box. This month’s has a astronaut and planets. 

IMG_1152

Then we have a sticker that is inspired by Doctor Who. The quote says “all of time and space, everything that ever happened or ever will… where do you want to start.” I love the blue background under the blue background. 

IMG_1154

The final item we get in the box is this print inspired baby Star Wars. The quote says “Hope is like the sun. If you can only believe in it when you can see it, you’ll never make it through the night”. I love the text and how the light hits the planet.  It’s beautiful.

This month’s theme is Fantasy which I am so excited for. 

IMG_0918  IMG_0919

First in this box we have the t-shirt that comes in every Nerdy Post Combo. This shirt says “Believe me, I’m not ordinary” which is a quote from Merlin. I love everything Merlin. It is one of my favourite stories and tv shows. I love the design on this. The colours complement each other and the artwork is beautiful. 

IMG_0920

Next we have the spoiler card. It is based on Lord of the Rings. I love that the whole picture has hues of green. It is very pretty. 

IMG_0921

Then we have this beautiful two sided fat bookmark. I love Nerdy Post bookmarks because they feel buttery and soft to the touch. On one side of the bookmark we have a picture of Daenerys with a dragon and sunset in the background. The quote says “I am no ordinary woman. My dreams come true.” On the opposite side we have Fawkes from Harry Potter and a ribbon that has the quote “It matters not what someone is born, but what we grow up to be.” 

IMG_0922     IMG_0923

Also in this month’s box we have this sticker. It says “you don’t need to like reality, only be strong enough to face it.” This is a quote from the Night Angle Trilogy by Brent Weaks. I love the typography and the water colour effect of it. 

IMG_0924

After that we have an exclusive lapel pin that features Ghost, the Direwolf from Game of Thrones. This is definitely going on my book bag. 

IMG_0925

Next, we have this absolutely gorgeous magnet. This is based on His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman. This has illustrations of Lyra, Pan and Lorek. I have not yet read the trilogy, but I really want to read it. When I was younger I did watch the movie when it first came out and I did really enjoy it. My favourite character was Lorek. 

IMG_0926

In this box we get another bookmark. This one is double sided and skinner then the first one. On one side it has a quote from the Name of the Wind. It says “ Words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts.” I love that quote and the galaxy background it has. Very beautiful. On the other side we have a quote from the Princess Bride. The quote says “have fun storming the castle”. I love the princess bride it is so funny and magical. 

IMG_0927   IMG_0928

As well has a mini print that says “ when people say impossible they usually mean improbable.” The quote is from Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo. I love the design of this. The light blue, green and orange really complement each other and the typography that they used is beautiful. 

IMG_0929

Next we have a poster. The quote says “beautiful and full of minsters… all the best stories are”. The poster is absolutely stunning. I love the lantern, the typography, the butterflies and flowers. Everything about it is stunning. I can not wait to hang this on my wall. 

IMG_0948

The final item is the postercard. Every month Nerdy post sends out a post card that you can colour in and send to someone. This is what this month’s looks like. 

IMG_0931

Next month’s theme is sci-fi. I can not wait.
