Spooky Box: Alien Invasion
I’ve recently received my second Spooky Box! This time the theme is “alien invasion”! :D
Having an alien inspired box couldn’t come at a more perfect time. Space is so in right now with all the hype around The Martian (good movie btw!), the new Star Wars movie, and the exciting discovery of water on Mars. Not to mention the talk about remaking The X Files.
For the record: I believe in aliens 100%, considering the immense size of the universe it would be against all odds and probability that we are alone. Of course there is life on other planets! The only question is where and what kind?
I do not however believe in little green men coming to earth and abducting people in their sleep. :P
Anyway, the box:
The card was appropriately green this time, and the charity of the month is the Solar Electric Light Fund (S.E.L.F.).
Also, I got more sequins. The previous box was filled with pearls and star, and this one had silvery paper strips + star and moon sequins. I tossed the strips but saved the sequins. :)
Close encounters wall hanging
Yes, I know it needs ironing, but I like the print! I’ll definitely find some place to hang this.
I haven’t used it yet so I don’t know how the “soap qualities” are, but it smells nice and the shape is fun.
Moon and star earrings
Cute, but unfortunately I think they’re from the same company who made the shipwreck earrings in the previous box because the material looks really cheap. And I still hate studs. Will probably not use.
Astronaut charm necklace
Very cute little astronaut + planet charm! The chain it came with was a bit too short for me though, so I’ve put it on a different chain I already had. I like it a lot and have worn it several times already! ^_^
Dual galaxy pendant necklace
Very pretty with one galaxy on each side. Once again the chain is of an awkward length though, so I think this also needs a different one that better suits me. But I still like the pendant. :)
Alien coaster set
Aww, these are so cute! And I actually need coasters so this was perfect! One of my favourites from this box.
I got a similar lollipop in my previous box, but of a different flavour. This time it’s “sherbet orange”.
I hope I’ll get one in every box, that would be super neat! Then I could have a whole collection of lollipops :D
Alien abduction mug
The print is nothing special imo, but at least it’s black. I’ve brought it to work to use as my office mug. Which I realize is kinda pointless because I don’t drink coffee or tea so don’t really need one. But still, the office could use some less boring mugs.
Vinyl bumper sticker
A reflex bumper sticker even! It would go well on my black car, but I don’t know if I dare… The car is brand new (to me, not new from the factory) and I don’t know how difficult it is to remove bumper stickers? I don’t want to ruin the paint or anything. :/
Nice sticker though, if I don’t put it on the car I’ll put it on something else.
This was my second Spooky Box, and I still like the concept a lot. As before, I love some of the items and feel kinda meh about some, but that’s to be expected I guess. The items are really random so of course every single thing won’t be to everyone’s liking. It’s just personal taste. The randomness is one of the most appealing things about it for me.
I do feel I got a good number of items and good value for my money. Overall I find the box a success and have renewed my subscription for another couple of months, so there will be more Spooky Boxes in the future. :)
