I’M BACK WITH SKULLS

Thank God it’s Friday. Friday always reminds me that the following day is weekend, when I can relax, chill and won’t be thinking about work. I always imagine that I’ll get stuck on Weekend, watching movie, cook, eat, sleep and then Saturday, Sunday and Saturday again. But hello, the reality is there’s Weekdays(sigh) and you need to work so you’ll survive(adulting). Ok no more complaints from me and I’ll move on, hihi.

Today, I am back with outfit post. I can’t remember when was my last OOTD post. And it is not only myself who’s back but also my Skull Leggings. I found it together with my old clothes that I am planning to sell. And you know what, I nearly dump this precious leggings of mine. Just so you know, I have this leggings for 5 years and it’s one of my favorite. I featured this leggings twice already here in blog and after ages, I am wearing it again.

Outfit Details

Our office doesn’t require to wear a decent or office attire every Friday so I can be just casual or plain. I paired my skull leggings with a shirt dress ’cause for me, they are great combination.

I don’t have a full outfit photo so I had to take a separate photo of what shoes I am wearing.

Sandals | Toms

How do you like my badass leggings?

That’s all for now. I’m up to preparing a Life Lately post and video of our recent trip to Koitaki Papua New Guinea. Promise I’ll post them the soonest. Hope you have an awesome weekend.

MUSIC MONDAY: HURRICANE(DIRECTOR’S CUT) THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS

Two weeks ago, I started a segment I entitled Music Monday where I can share you what song I am currently listening. Also, I didn’t mention in my previous post that this is also to share you a music video. I was about to blog last week but I got swamped with important things to do(I’ll discuss it on my next post). Ok so let us talk about today’s song.

If you know me personally, you’ll know that one of my favorite rock band is 30 Seconds to Mars. It is not a secret that I love Jared Leto. The band has been going for almost 20 years now. 30 Seconds to Mars is still 30 Seconds to Mars, unlike the other bands that has been disbanded and the lead vocalist goes solo. Well, I hope that they won’t end breaking up.

Hurricane is from their album “This is War” released in 2009. 7 years ago(2010) the music video was set to premiere on MTV but it has been banned on television due to violent and sex scenes. The explicit scenes are completely restricted(you can check out the censored version in my previous post here). And after 2 weeks of protesting, MTV allowed the full length video but it took years for Youtube to finally released the uncensored video. It’s just last week that Jared posted on Facebook that the video is finally out on Youtube so immediately checked on it and it will only allow 18 years old and above audience. So if you’re below 18, please do not attempt on watching it.

Here’s the video and song lyrics:

HURRICANE | 30 SECONDS TO MARS

No matter how many times that you told me
you wanted to leave
No matter how many breaths that you took
you still couldn’t breathe
No matter how many nights that you lie wide awake
to the sound of the poison rain
Where did you go?
Where did you go?
Where did you go?

As days go by
the nights on fire

Tell me would you kill
to save a life
Tell me would you kill
to prove your right
Crash, crash,
Burn, let it al burn
This hurricane chasing us all underground

No matter how many deaths that I die
I will never forget
No matter how many lies that I live
I will never regret
There is a fire inside that started a riot
and about to explode in flames
Where is your God?
Where is your God?
Where is your God?

Do you really want?
Do you really want me?
Do you really want me dead or alive
to torture for my sins?

Do you really want?
Do you really want me?
Do you really want me dead or alive
to live a lie?

Tell me would you kill
to save a life
Tell me would you kill
to prove your right
Crash, crash,
Burn, let it all burn
this hurricane chasing us all underground

The promises we make were not enough
(never play the game with me)
The prayers that we have prayed were like a drug
(never go to hit me here)
The secrets that we sold were never known
(never sing a song we sing)
The love we had
The love we had
We had to let it go
(never get it and again,
never get it and again)

Tell me would you kill
to save a life
Tell me would you kill
to prove your right
Crash, crash
Burn, let it all burn
This hurricane chasing us all underground

This hurricane
This hurricane
This hurricane

Do you really want?
Do you really want me?
Do you really want me dead or alive
to torture for my sins?

Do you really want?
Do you really want me?
Do you really want me dead or alive
to live a lie?

In my own opinion, the song is meant for love relationship where the couple or in relationship people wants to break up ’cause they couldn’t work it out or fix their situation. It is not literally “to kill” but to killing their relationship gone bad. Hurricane refers to emotion that tear them apart. No matter how hard they tried, the two of them couldn’t keep their promises.  And in the end, the love they had for each other was not enough to save their relationship and it fell apart

Does anyone can relate with the song? I would love to know what can you say about it. You’re always welcome to leave comment on the comment box section. Hope you like reading today’s post and of course listening to the song.

 

Love,

Lin

PS: The video is directed by Jared my babe, hahaha.

MUSIC MONDAY : FORGIVENESS | PARAMORE

A suppose to be Monday post but I think that it is still ok to post this today(Tuesday here in PNG) ’cause it’s still Monday in other part of the world, so forgive me 🙂

I’ll start this series entitled “Music Monday” where I can share you what song  I am currently listening or I think I can relate with. I prefer listening to songs that I feel like it was written for me(yiihh) like this song I am going to share with you today.

I am sure that some of you know the band Paramore. If you’re a die-hard fan like me(hahaha) , you already knew that they release their 5th album titled “After Laughter”. After 4 years, finally they’re back and it is not only Hayley and Taylor are back in track. Former member drummer Zac Farro is now member again of Paramore. But I was quite sad that Jeremy Davis was gone. I don’t really know what exactly happen. But the band must go on, and they have to move on.

I am introducing you one of their song from the latest album “After Laughter”. Please click the play button and see the lyrics while listening.

FORGIVENESS | PARAMORE

You hurt me bad this time, no coming back
And I cry ’till I couldn’t cry, another heart attack
If I lay on the floor, maybe I’ll wake up
And I don’t pick up when you call
‘Cause your voice is a gun
Every word is a bullet hole
Shot a hole in the sun
If I never look up maybe I’ll never notice

And you, you want forgiveness
But I, I just can’t do it yet

There’s still a thread that runs from your body to mine
And you can’t break what you don’t see, an invisible line
If I follow it down would we just be alright?
But it could take me all your life to learn to love
How I thought I could love someone
I haven’t even begun
If it’s all up to us we might as well give up

And you, you want forgiveness
(I can barely hang on to myself)
But I, I can’t give you that
(I can’t give you, I can’t give you that)
And you, you want forgiveness
(I’m afraid that I’ll have nothing left)
But I, I just can’t do it yet
(I can’t do, I just can’t do it yet)

Don’t you go and get it twisted
Forgiving is not forgetting
Don’t you go and get it twisted
Forgiving is not forgetting
No, it’s not forgetting
No, I’ll never forget it, no

And you, you want forgiveness
(I can barely hang on to myself)
But I, I can’t give you that
(I can’t give you, I can’t give you that)
And you, you want forgiveness
(I’m afraid that I’ll have nothing left)
But I, I just can’t do it yet
(I can’t do, I just can’t do it yet)

I find this song that can relate with my situation after receiving message from someone from the past. I’ve already let go of our love story after all the lies and heartache he caused. And now, he’s asking for forgiveness but I don’t think that he deserves it. I was so tough, and I can’t give yet what he wants. His sorry is not enough ’cause I got badly hurt. Call me selfish but I don’t care ’cause you’re not in my situation. Try to put yourself on my shoe. Maybe one day I’ll understand and maybe I just need time.

Hope you like the song

NOTICE TO ALL MY READERS

Hi,

I am writing this to let you all know that I am slowly doing changes over this blog and trying to REVAMP it(actually, I already did, haha). You’ll notice that I started on changing the theme(have you??) Also, if you’re trying to reach http://www.crazycatladysdiaries.wordpress.com, it is not existing anymore. It is due to changing the web address to http://www.linagainsttheworld.wordpress.com so I named my blog as LIN AGAINST THE WORLD. I’ll discuss on my future post about the things I consider on re branding my blog and what makes me decide. One thing I can tell you now is that my re branded blog isn’t about hating the world, it is going to be about “doing and conquering things on my own”.

That’s all for now and I hope that I didn’t surprise you.

 

Love,

Lin

My nails reminds me of Tare Panda.

WHAT’S IN MY LUNA BAG | REVIEW

Most of the lady bloggers are sharing “What’s in my bag?” post and this has been floating around IG and Tumblr since. I am curious like a cat what sort of stuffs do they have in their bag so I consider this as a “must read blog”, hihihi. As a blogger, I want to do the same. I thought of doing this as a vlog BUT I am not confident and I might stuffed up, hahaha. So I’ll forget about vlogging and just do like what I did before, just click here. I want to share what I currently have in my bag. But first, let me tell you a short introduction about the bag before I share what was inside.

Luna Replica Bag. Well if you know Usagi Tsukino(Sailor Moon) you’ll know Luna too. Luna is the talking black cat that advises Usagi and other Sailor Soldiers. She has partner named Artemis, the white cat who awakens Sailor V(Ok that’s a trivia, lol).  My sister ordered this bag online, click here. The store owner is having a clearance sale and the Luna and Artemis bag were on a very very special price. Guess how much? They sell it for only Php 600(USD 12) for 2 and if you get only 1 it will cost Php 400 (USD 8). It’s super cheap so I immediately told my sister to order it rather than getting an authentic Samantha Vega which cost a thousands and I don’t have budget for it -_-. As I’ve read in some reviews, the authentic and replica looks the same but may be the quality is different, you think? I thought I might take a risk of ordering a fake and cheap SV but I was wrong. I have the bag for more than 6 months now and it’s still in a very good condition and it’s all worth it.

The Metallic crescent moon and chain straps has tiny discolorations but you won’t even notice till you have a closer look. What good is, no signs of rusting.

Some metal feet just like what you see in Coach Bags.

img_8379
There are inner and outer pockets.

The bag can be closed by magnetic button.

I attached this little Moon Stick Keychain I’ve got from Hatah Hatah, it matches the bag.

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset
It’s made of leather material, a small purse but it holds my essentials and a couple more stuffs. So here’s what’s inside. We’ll start from left to right.

  • My iPhone 6 that I’ve got 2 years ago as birthday gift for myself. I always have my phone with me. I use this for work related calls and taking photos. It also has tons of music from iTunes. I protected it with My Melody printed jelly case I’ve got from my sister’s shop.
  • Company ID, Work Permit ID and ATM.
  • Hello Kitty Coin Purse where I put my coins. I got this from Divisoria for only Php 35.
  • Contact Lens and Case if I don’t feel like wearing glasses at work ’cause I look a bit nerdy so I wear lenses instead.
  • Maybelline BB Stick and Nude Matte Lipstick. I have to limit the amount of my beauty essentials ’cause they might not all fit in my bag. So I only carry these two must haves.
  • Sunnies for shading my eyes to protect it from the sun.
  • BYS Blush in Trio, it comes with cheek blush, highlighter and contour.
  • Blush on Applicator. Since my BYS doesn’t come with a brush, I had to bring one.
  • Hello Kitty Wet Wipes, it’s very handy and ideal for clean ups for hands and face. I also use this after peeing 🙂
  • Baby Bench Cologne in Jelly Bean, my favorite baby cologne since forever. It makes me feel like I’m a grade school, hahaha.
  • EO Eye Solution that disinfects and lubricates my lenses
  • House and Office Keys ’cause I am responsible on holding the office keys. Also, the keychains – the blue fish that looks like Dory is from Boracay, the strawberry is from Summer Capital of the Philippines, Baguio and the Sailor Moon Cosmic Power again from Hatah Hatah.

There it goes. How do you like what’s inside my bag? Anything similar to yours? If you’ve ever shared a post like this on your blog, drop the link in the comments so I can snoop.

TORTURED LOVE

I was the one who destroyed our relationship and you were the one who fucked up everything. You were my greatest love, both the brightest and the darkest part of my life and lived a tortured love.

I got lost and confused due to the fact that I have been attached to this love that I wasn’t able to forget. I keep questioning myself, “Is this love is finally coming to an end?”

I know that I’ve failed a thousands times trying to eliminate this love. But now, I am finally choking and killing this love inside me that I kept for so long. It’s completely time to go away and become the better version of myself. It’s time for me to move on once and for all .
