img_1694.jpg

The final item in this month’s box before the book is this art print designed by Aun-Juli Riddle. I feel like this art print is the definition of strange and unusual and I won’t have it another way. This art print is beautiful. I love the watercolour effect of it.

The first thing in this box is the spoiler card. I love the design and colour scheme of this card. The purples, pinks and blues sues are stunning. I also love that the girl in the picture is reading a previous OwlCrate book. On the opposite side it shows what is in the box. 

IMG_1357

IMG_1359

An item that we got in this box is a mason jar mug. It says “Book worm and proud”. This is much a good idea to put in a summer bookish subscription box. I love reading outside while drinking iced coffee, so I’ll absolutely be using this. This mug was designed by Michelle Grey and OwlCrate.

IMG_1362

Next up we have tea from Riddle’s Tea Shoppe. This is inspired by Since You’ve Been Gone bye Morgan Matson. It has hints of summer apple and peach, which sounds delicious. I don’t drink tea, so I’ll 100% be giving this to my friend that does. I also love the label design.

Another item we have in this box is an item that I have never seen in any other book subscription box before and that is a towel. It says “My summer is all booked” which is so true.  This towel was designed by Stella Bookish Art. I am so excited to use this.

Also I this box we received a wooden bookmark. The quote on it says “Summer was a book of hope” and it is from Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe.

When a fellow filmmaker offers Twinkle the chance to direct a short film, she jumps at the chance to do it. This novel is told from the letters that Twinkle writes to her favourite female filmmakers. This bookstands like the perfect summer read. I’m so excited to read it. The book is also signed by the author and has a letter from the author. We also get an exclusive keychain inspired from the novel.

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.

First as always is the spoiler card for this month’s box. This month’s theme is fight like a girl. I always love OwlCrate’s spoiler card. The artwork is always beautiful and fits the theme just right. 

img_1120.jpg IMG_1121

After that we are getting a wall hanging designed by Evie Bookish. The quote says “remember that you are a wolf and you cannot be caged”. The quote is from A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. I love that the design is so well detailed yet so simplistic. 

IMG_1122 IMG_1124

In this box we also have a bookmark from Indigo Eleven. On one side it says “if I am marching to my death, then I will march to it as a girl without fear.”  Then on the other side it says “you are strong. Fierce. Capable beyond measure.” Both quotes are from the Wrath and the Dawn duology. I love the design of both sides of the bookmarks, the colours and flowers are beautiful and fits the season. 

IMG_1129

Then we get an art print from Melanie Bourgeois. This print is inspired by Inej from Six of Crows. This print is down right gorgeous. I feel like it needs to be framed. 

IMG_1128

In addition to the main book we have this month OwlCrate added another book to this book. This book is called Catching Stars by Cayla Keenan. It follows a powerful witch named Jayin who is trying to survive. Her paths cross with Maddix, a man wrongfully in prison and just escaped. Throughout the story they become the most unlikeliest of allies. This edition is an Owl Crate exclusive from Oftomes Publishing.

She ends up face to face with her brother on the battlefield – hr brother she thought died 5 years ago.  She ends up being forced to live among a rival clan, and she discovers life altering secrets. This book is one of my most anticipated books for 2018, I am so excited. This book is also signed. With the book we also get a letter from the author and an exclusive pin.

Every month we get a pamphlet all about the behind the scenes of making this month’s box.

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.
