Happy Rebel Box Fall 2016 Review and Coupon

Happy Rebel Box, which you will notice shortly, has an edgy, rocker sort of vibe that I really like. While I love my girly things, I'm also partial to what my husband calls a "goth chick" sense of style. Hey, I like hardware, I can't help it. And my latest pair of boots fits right in with the theme for this box.

For some reason I totally skipped reviewing the summer Happy Rebel Box. Now the Fall one has arrived and I'm determined to make sure I get the review up. After the very first Happy Rebel Box (which you can see here), I signed up for a one year subscription. I loved that first box so much! The second one had a round towel, tote bag, a silicon set of wine glasses and a black lace kimono. I ended up loving the kimono that I thought I would hate and unhappy with the round towel I thought I would love because it faded horribly after one wash. I'm not sure that I'd ever use the silicon wine glasses. They're very... unstable. If you accidentally squeeze it too hard while you're talking, its gonna go everywhere!

Back to this season's box!

The Cost: $100/quarterly

What You Get: Each box will contain 4-6 items that will vary box to box, so you will never receive the same types of items repeatedly. Each box could contain jewelry, fashion accessories, home decor, beauty products, as well as other various lifestyle items that fit the collection of the box as well as the Happy Rebel modern and edgy style.

Lauren Moshi Gold Foil Art Notebook- There were two versions of this notebook. This one that says "love" in guns and ammo and a mirrored skull in the shape of a heart. I now have a plethora of notebooks that I need to use and this really isn't my style so I'll be gifting it to someone I know will love it.
Value: $40
Golden Handle Scissors- I can always use more scissors. These are not super high quality like my fabric shears but they're also not nearly as expensive. These are ridiculously sharp (VERY sharp!), cut smoothly but are a little heavy to use. Eminently usable and cute to boot!
Value: $10

Raindrops Paperclips- In black and gold, these are SO cute. I cannot wait to use them. It is going to be so fun to get organized again once we move! I cannot wait.
Value: $6
Russell+Hazel Acrylic Desk Set- This is a set with a stapler and tape dispenser. Both are clear acrylic with gold tone hardware. This will definitely spruce up my desk once I get it all set up again. Right now most things are going straight into a box, as I am packing to move. It's going to be like Christmas, when I finally get to use all these things!
Value: $36
Gold Foil Embossed Skull Art Prints- I believe these are by Sam's Simple Decor. You can check out her Etsy shop here. This is a set of three real gold foiled skulls, ready for framing or whatever you want to do with them. While I'm not a super fan of skulls, I'm going to keep one for myself and give the other two to my skull-loving friend.
Value: $42
D.L. & Co. Stationery Boxed Set- I first have to let my spelling bee out and note that the information card spelled stationery incorrectly. *cough* Anyway, I received the "Rotten Luck" set with gold foil dots on skulls, numbers and devils. There are 12 notecards and envelopes. The quality is very, very good.
Value: $50

VERDICT: This was a little too skull heavy for me. I loved the desk accessories, though. They will be put to good use in a month or two when I start unpacking everything. The good thing is that I have a skull obsessed friend who will happily take all the skull-tastic goodness. This box was worth well over the price paid for it which is always a good thing. Now would I have spent $100 buying all these things? No, most definitely not. However I think like most subscription box addicts, I've come to terms with the fact that I'm not always going to like everything all the time.

If you would like to sign up for Happy Rebel Box, you can do that here. Use code BB10 for $10 off your first box.

What do you think of this box? I think it's a nice departure from the usual lifestyle box.
