The world is yours

Image

“Is this it? This what is all about ? Eating, drinking, working , fucking? what ?… The world is yours. Th world inside you .. stop being a maricon and start to live. Really live! You came into the world with nothing, you leave the world with nothing. So why you spending all time always trying to have something? living like a haza, always wanting more. maybe you already have all that you will ever need in this life. you just haven’t looked yet. So look, Really Look ” – !

so, where I found this quote they claim that it is taken from the famous movie Scarface, although I couldn’t find this exact line anywhere that is related to the movie. However, I don’t care about that, cuz whether it is truly from the film or not this quote is basically is my wakeup call, and that’s what all matters here,,, at least to me.

for more than a year and I’ve been going through this “What am I really looking for” kinda phase, I’ve been in this never endless boredom that I don’t seem to find a reason or a solution for since 2011, yes, specifically after getting back from Habitat for Humanity trip to Kenya, which was a great experience. But nothing has seemed to be the same since then.

I got to travel again to other places that were packed with many amazing people, adventures and times basically… I’ve got to do and experience lots of things till this moment, but the enjoyment and the happiness that come from those experiences were always seemed to be within the action moment that once it was over all the boredom and the nothingness would come back again, which left me the way I am right now, confused and not knowing what to do.

I’ve got graduated finally from the uni some couple months ago, thinking I would get back my peace of mind but obviously i haven’t. I get to do fun or maybe crazy stuff less than before now due to the new environment/place I’ve moved to after graduation, which I believe helped in developing a new habit that you can call Consuming. I simply don’t stop wanting to buy  more and more stuff, not thinking that they would make me happy, but just because i want them or I want to try them. I’ve been so into make up products these days, I feel like going to the mall every other day to get new foundation, or highlighter or wanna try blue or purple lipsticks … etc, although at the end of the day I know that I don’t wear that much of make up very often, ( because i love the way I am =b ) still, I just wanna have them, I just wanna get bigger make up collection.

if you wanna look at it in a psychological way, I’m not sure who am I comparing myself to that i keep wanting to buy stuff to fulfil that empty space … I dunno what I’m trying to run from that i just keep going and buying stuff … I really don’t know …

However, going to the Scraface quote again… I NEED TO STOP WHAT I AM DOING, I gotta stop wasting my money on things that I don’t really need that gonna expire in 3 or 12 months, because that’s not gonna help in anyway, I know that,,, I gotta stop acting like a haza, keep wanting to get, try or go or whatever … maybe because it is not about the short term achievements after all,or maybe just a lil part …

 maybe you already have all that you will ever need in this life. you just haven’t looked yet. So look, Really Look 

but for now, lets play Older for George Michael, because something good has happened to me, I’m not really sure what is it exactly, but lets celebrate it anyway … =)

 

Ps, I’ll be posting my latest Fancy Subscription box as soon as I can, I promise that that box would be the last =S

cheers;

Fancy Box Subscription

so I finally got to subscribe to the Fancy box and I just got it yesterday within only 5 days shipment (based on the massage I got informing me that the box got shipped), so I consider it a pretty fast shipping, especially that it is an international one. 

Fancy Box

as you can see, International shipping doesn’t usually treat the shipped packages so good, which can be really problematic sometimes, depending on the nature of the items inside them!

anyway, the Theme of this month, April, and quoting from the little card included in the package: “This Month, we created a Fancy Box full of one-of-a-kind items with a rustic feel. Whether you spend all your time outside or none whatsoever, we hope you enjoy the outdoorsy aesthetic!” – Fancy 

pretty interesting, and I like the rustic feeling, and that was actually what I thought of when I saw the items:: earth and maybe sustainability:

Rustic Feeling

 

before I start showing the items and reviewing them… I thought I would get only four items in the box like most of the other boxes that were sent in previous months, but I ended up with five, which I’m really glad for, especially that the shipping rate to the part of the world I’m living in is kinda high “” compared to the local one”” 

 

Note: you can click on the pictures of the items so you can directly go to their links on Fancy.com

Message in a Bottle USB Drive: $28

I’m not sure of how I feel about this USB, it is cute, but it gives the impression that it is meant for gifting, rather to be kept with the purchaser, unless you are thinking of saving some personal, top secret kinda files on it. However, I know I’m not gonna use this USB,but I don’t wanna give it away either !!! 

IZOLA toothbrush

Guest toothbrushes by Izola: $15

Unfortunately, I don’t get to have many guests who would spend the night over like I used to do before moving to the new place I’m living in right now, and to be honest I also don’t feel like giving this item away, I adore its design and the quality, so I think I will use it myself, ignoring the Guests label on them!!! XD

Fold Over Triangles Post Earing by Amano Trading: $22

Although I don’t wear earnings that much but these are definitely cool and pretty, I’m actually wearing them right now!, check the brand’s other stuff, pretty interesting,, and I’m considering ordering some stuff in the future.

Chalkboard Decals by Wallies: $10

9″ x 12″ two black sheets with 2 chalk included, I know I’m not gonna use this so I would probably give it away.

Kinfolk; Issue 11: $18 

I never came across this magazine before yesterday, and I’m already in Love. When I first took it out of the box I wasn’t so excited about it and thought of it as another kinda coffee table book, but I changed my mind once I started reading the first article. It talks about everything that has to do with Home, based on different people’s definitions of the word itself, home. It gives you different tips on what to do and how to do and such … I’m just in Love … and I consider this as the best item I got in the box ❤

… 

so:                                                                                                 

Expectations: I would hate the box and get so disappointed 

Reality: I actually like it, maybe not at the first sight, but I like it now

The thing is that every item is indeed interesting and Fancy, but the question that kept coming to my mind is am I gonna buy them if I got the chance to… most probably not,,, maybe yes in the case of the earnings and definitely the Kinfolk magazine. But in general no! mybe because usually the cool stuff were not made to be used but only to be looked at I guess!!! 

However, I liked the way that fancy tried to pick the items based on rusticity, stay fancy and not exceed the expected total price, as it is around $93.
