Subscription Box Unboxing
Subscription Box Review
The first glimpse inside the “Good Golly Miss Bali” themed package for fall. This has all those zen vibes and I’m loving the color scheme.
Everything that I received in my Good Golly Miss Bali themed Box. This is a beautiful assortment and I can never get enough of how they blend the current season with beach essence!
So what is all this stuff?
Our box insert
This tells us about each of the items that was included in our box for the season and it included a theme reveal for Winter which is, “Mele Kalikimaka” which is one of my all time fave Xmas songs! PLUS- they included a Balinese recipe to keep this box authentic and bring it all together. The recipe is Balinese Chicken Satay and is from the blog Olives and Lucinda
Tallulah Rattan Bali Bag
This handmade bag typically takes about 3-4 weeks to create. It is made entirely from natural materials like; batik, rattan, ata grass and genuine leather. Because they are handmade with natural elements you can be sure that your bag is 100% unique and that no two bags are alike! You could pair this with jeans and a blouse or dress it up with a flowy bohemian frock. I am loving these colors and think this bag is absolutely stunning!
The batik fabric lining the bag includes a pocket and we just think this gives the bag such character – the colors exude fall!
The weaving on this bag is intricate and skillful. This bag is more than just a fashion statement, it’s a piece of art. I like the button closure on it as well.
Along with the bag we also received a bag to store it in keeping it free of dust and dirt!
Balipura Crystal Infused Healing Mist
You guys know how much I love florals so when I saw this box came with an auric spray and it was infused with JASMINE… my heart swooned a little bit. This “Pure Love” spray enhances love, compassion, understanding and harmony and aligns the heart chakra. This organic spray is applied by spraying a few sprays above your head and then breathing it in. This spray contains rose quartz, jade, chrysoprase, aventurine, amazonite as well as ylang ylang, champaka and jasmine.
We also received a little pamphlet showing us all the products made by Balipura (all of which are handmade in Bali)!
Featured Artisan: Daydreaming Print by Kate Shore Fine Art
The featured artisan for this box is Kate Shore who creates coastal inspired abstract art. This exclusive Art print is a reproduction of her original acrylic painting and is ready to frame, each print made was numbered and signed by the artist. I am in love with these bold pops of color and think this painting really captures the essence of what the Oceanista subscription box is all about!
Handcrafted Wooden Bali Bead Necklace
Next in our package is this beautiful beaded necklace. This is handcrafted by the Balinese people and the colors included in boxes were chosen at random. The wooden beads are small and cream colored on mine and the tassel is gray (you guys know I love gray) and is made with silk!
This is a really pretty addition to this package!
Doucce Island Hopping Freematic Eyeshadow Quad
The Freematick Eyeshadow Palettes from Doucce are really nice. This one is aptly named, “Island Hopping” and comes with four different beach inspired shades. This palette includes two mattes as well as two shimmers.
Something that I personally love about these palettes is that you can use the magnetic pans to swap out different colors in your palettes and since I have several of these now I can start creating my own special palettes!
Here are each of the shades swatched, these are richly pigmented and that second shade is very beautiful as well as long lasting!
Embroidered Poncho Like Tunic from Andree by Unit
The final item in our Oceanista Box for Fall is this beautifully fall colored tunic from Andree by Unit. The orange and gray / cream is a gorgeous coupling and this bohemian style can be worn almost anywhere! This loose fitting look is relaxed but the embroidery gives it a flair of elegance and it will look absolutely beautiful with our new bag!
I love the lacing on the front of this tunic and the embroidery has a bit of that “Aztec” / geometric feeling which I think adds so much interest.
And then on the back you have these strings which allow you to cinch your tunic.
Bonus: Jewelry Cleaner
If you were subscribed to Oceanista for their summer package and received the tumbled sea glass necklace then you will have received in your fall box this pretty jewelry cleaning cloth. Just a little something extra they added in for subscribers.
So in summary
Presentation: Everything was packaged beautifully, tied up in string and arrived to us perfectly in our Fall Oceanista Subscription Box!
Quality: Something I love about this box the most is that they do a great job of bringing us the highest quality items that are also authentic and true to the regions that they come from. Most of these brands I’d never have heard about otherwise.
Curation: This “Good Golly Miss Bali” themed box really managed to convey not just beach vibes but specifically Bali vibes and somehow… fall vibes. Seriously how many more times can I put the word vibes in a sentence? But regardless this was a beautiful assortment!
Box Economy: For the price of this box ($89) we received $270 in value which is a phenomenal deal!
Oceanista is a beach lifestyle subscription box. Their fall package had a “Good Golly Miss Bali” theme and included beautiful items that anyone would be thrilled to receive.
