Hello geeky friends! It feels like it’s been a while since our last crate but we’re happy to report that we received our September 2014 LootCrate. This month’s theme - “Galactic”!
Here’s a general overview of our unboxing:
For this month’s LootCrate, it focuses on major science fiction favorites such as Star Trek, Star Wars and Firefly.
I really thought the Star Trek Tribble plus toy was adorable! It makes a great centerpiece. Plus, a great conversation starter!
The Alien figurine is definitely a keeper. Aside from the details, this will be perfect to display for Halloween (or any figurines that matches the horror scheme). At least we don’t have to worry about the figurine coming to life O__O
This was my absolute favorite! I’m a fan of Firefly and seeing the figurine and bank money replica definitely made me happy. Too bad the money isn’t real!
The rest of the goodies from the box includes a Star Wars magnet, a code to download free Halo comics, Pop Rocks candy, Star Wars poster and the LootCrate September 2014 button.
The one gripe I had about the LootCrate box was the inclusion of the Pop Rock candy. While it does fit the “Galactic” theme, I personally think this is something that you can purchase from a convenience store. What they should’ve added is more downloadable content.
Overall, I’m pretty happy with the crate! Did you get yours in the mail yet? Let me know in the comments on your thoughts.
Saying goodbye to Summer can be hard. Let this treasury list remind you of the nostalgic feel of the warm days and long nights before the transition to Autumn. Follow us at RedLotusDesignz.com for all the latest on our shop adventures!
Happy Monday everyone! Today, I received my first subscription box from Lootcrate from my local post office. After waiting for a month, it definitely felt like Christmas when I was able to receive the glorious box of goodies! The theme for the August 2014 box is “Heroes”.
Here’s the overall look of the box when opened:
At first glance, most of the theme looks like it was dedicated to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Compared to the new movie that was released this year that’s directed by Michael Bay, the TMNT items are more of a throwback to the classic series (which I’m happy about).
I think the biggest highlight for this theme’s box is none other than the Funko Pop! Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy featuring Groot. For this one, it’s Glow in the Dark and is only available for LootCrate subscribers. I haven’t watched Guardians of the Galaxy but I have to admit, Groot is too darn cute!
I love unique accessories. The Sonic Air Freshener from Sega and Epic Scents and the Shoe Lightning Bolts from Schwings are definitely awesome!
The rest of the goodies in the box were pretty nice: a LootCrate mini magazine dedicated for the “Heroes” theme, pin back button, magnet and digital downloads.
Overall, I’m pretty pleased with this month’s theme! Since it’s my first subscription box, I’m definitely looking forward to receiving more from LootCrate.

I am pleased to announced that I was nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by Nerd Girl Style! This is my first time receiving any sort of an award and it’s truly an amazing experience. Since I was nominated by Sonja (owner of Nerd Girl Style), I will be answering the questions from her blog post. So here we go!
1.) Whats your goal for 2015?
To provide more jewelry and accessory customizations for our customers. And maybe attend more geeky events!
2.) Whats your favorite Fandom?
I definitely adore Doctor Who!
3.) If you wrote a book, what would it be?
Probably a book about a woman who is a tarot reader but doesn’t have much luck in finding love!
4.) Who’s inspires you to be the best person you could be?
My parents and my husband. Without them, I would not be the person that I am today :)
5.) If you had to leave and only take 3 things with you, what would they be?
Journal, tarot cards and pens. I can live without my phone ;)
6.) Whats your favorite animal and why?
Cats are my favorite animal! I grew up raising 4 cats. Sadly, three of them passed away (including my favorite cat Sunshine whom I always felt a strong sense of connection). My fourth cat, Shadow, is a sweetheart. Many people feel that black cats are a sign of bad luck, but I don’t believe it to be so!
7.) Whats your biggest addiction?
Oh dear…that would have to be ice cream!
8.) What movie makes you cry, the one that just gets you every time?
I’m a sucker for Bollywood and Asian films. Doesn’t matter the story line - they always know how to pull the heart strings! Whether if the theme is about family, surviving in a war or finding lost love, they definitely make me cry because in every sense it can be related to our daily lives.
9.) Whats on the top of your favorite reads list?
I mostly read books that are motivational. My top favorites are The Secret, Assertiveness for Earth Angels and Courageous Dreaming.
10.) If you could do anything and get paid for it, what would you want to do?
Playing video games! Hey, it does require our brain power to solve those puzzles ;)
11.) Have you been to a convention, if so where was your favorite?
Yep! The New York Comic Con has always been our favorite convention to attend. My husband and I do our best to make it to the event once a year. The feeling of being part of an energetic crowd who shares the same interests as you is what makes the event so special. Not to mention, the costumes are amazing!
This was definitely fun! I enjoyed answering the questions :) Thanks so much Sonja!
