Today, I got up early again, too excited to start making my bracelets. I use waterproof materials for the making of my bracelets. They are adjustable bracelets as well. I stood up, made my coffee, ready to make my handmade jewellery. I hope, I could make 3-4 bracelets today. Handmade products are not easy. It takes time, care, attention to detail, and with passion, of course. That’s why each handmade item is so special & unique when you think of how the maker spends time and skills in each creation. The same with my scented candles. I make each candle with extra care and love, with pure natural ingredients that are good for yourself and environment.
Later on today, I will add the handmade bracelets to my collections on my online store as well after finished making them. They will be cute bracelets that are affordable. The charms that I use for the bracelets vary in material. I, for example, work with 925 sterling silver, gold vermeil (14K gold plating on sterling silver), real rose gold, and just gold or silver plated on metal substances. Therefore the prices of my jewellery are different, which will suit everybody. If you go for the real materials such as original 925 sterling silver, gold vermeil, then the cost is a bit higher. If you just want something cool with affordable prices, then go for the cheaper jewellery that made of just metal/stainless steel with gold or silver plated.
I will begin to make my bracelets now. Speak soon!
Now I have just finished making the sterling silver necklace with starfish cz pendant, which is the product above. Next, I will begin to make the bracelets, which I will be using some nylon and waxed cotton cords to make them. So, it will take some time before I am done creating them. Maybe, by afternoon or the end of the day, I will have some handmade bracelets ready for purchase on my online store Mystic Full Moon as well.
I so looked forward to making my jewellery. I could barely sleep at night. So I stood up pretty early this morning, went out to buy some breakfast, back home again to make my coffee and have my early meal, then began to make jewellery. I love art & design. So, creating and designing something is what I enjoy doing. It doesn’t matter if it is gems, fashion clothes, candles, writing screenplays, filmmaking, and similar, I am entertained by the process of creating them. If it is something I am truly passionate about, I will give myself 100% or even more to produce a piece of art.
I have been working on my online jewellery store Mystic Full Moon constantly. So, I haven’t had time to blog that often anymore. Getting my startup business up and running is my top priority right now. But I will also try to blog as often as I possibly can. I love blogging, though. So I can’t stop blogging. No matter how busy I am, I will try to blog when I can. Now, I’m not that busy. That’s why I begin to blog again. I’m still busy, however. Having your own business is a full time job. There will always be something to do, to improve your business. Especially, when you just start it, there are lots and lots of things to do.
Now that Christmas is just right around the corner. I have personalised necklaces and rings for you to customise them for yourself with your name on them, or just purchase them as Christmas gifts for that special someone, family, or friends. They make good, surprised Christmas gifts. A unique Christmas present that everyone will, surely, love. My best selling product at the moment is Personalized Classic Name Tag Necklace, which comes in gold, silver, and rose gold colours for you to choose from. That’s why these customised jewellery make perfect Christmas gift ideas, or as gifts to any occasions.
Not only jewels that you can purchase on my online store. You can now also buy scented candles. I hand make each candle myself in my studio in London. From selecting the right ingredients, designing the packaging to making and shipping the products myself with absolute love and care. Therefore each of my product has a special touch to it since each piece is being carefully crafted by me from start to finish. I enjoy making them partly because I then get to inhale all the lovely perfumes from the essential oils that I use in my candles, and partly because I like creating something unique and original. Each item is like a piece of art when it’s being made by hand with special care & love from the maker.
Check out some of my products below. You can even order them right here on my blog. Very convenient, huh?
I got up quite early because I have lots to do. I had cereal for breakfast today. I am too busy to make a decent breakfast for myself nowadays. So cereal or fruit seem to be the perfect, healthy solution for busy people like me. I do have fruits for my early meal very often as well. I go to bed late and stand up early every day now since I have just started my jewelry business Mystic Full Moon, so I just get so excited to get my business off the ground as soon as possible. When I start a new project, I get so enthusiastic about it that I can barely sleep. I just have to wake up early and begin to work on it. I feel so active and productive daily. I just love being busy doing what I love.
I also have to finish my drama screenplay “The Mad Boy.” But that I will have to work on it bit by bit. I have rewritten it, re-outlined, re-read, and more, and found out that the script needs to be tightened up a little, to make it more interesting read. I am happy with the new storyline. So, I plan to rewrite the manuscript about 3-10 pages a day. I think, it is realistic because I have already written the screenplay. The second draft is more about polishing it. So, 10 pages a day is achievable. I will not begin to revise my screenplay now since I have lots to do during the day. I will do it in the evening instead.
I have spent the whole day working and setting up my boho jewelry online store website which is MYSTICFULLMOON.COM. I decided to create a completely different domain name for my jewelry business instead of using buppha.uk, which may confuse people with my blog buppha.com. I love jewelry and fashion, and love being my own boss. So, I just have to start my own business. I can now relax after everything has been set up. It took me a whole day to add lots of products onto my jewels online store site. But, that’s just the initial hard work. Now, I can be more relaxed. The new items I have to add in the future won’t be that industrious. That’s why I took the time to build the foundation first.
Originally, I told myself I don’t want to make and sell scented candles, anyway. However, I think I have to carry on with it. It’s also a perfect time to sell candles. How can you separate candles from winter and Christmas? When you think of wintertime or Christmas, you automatically associate it with candles – something cozy and magical. I make candles and use them for my home myself. So, why not make and sell them as well? I love the smell and the calm atmosphere the candle brings to my home. I just can’t get enough of it. It really helps you wind down.
I, especially, love lighting a candle with my favorite fragrance in my bathroom when I take a shower. Candle exudes its perfume to a great extent when it’s being lit in a small room such as bath, bedroom. I experience that when I light just 1 candle in a big room like living room, it smells of almost nothing. It’s just a fact that when you light a candle in a large room, you can’t expect it to smell as strong as when it’s being lit in a small room. When I light more than 1 candle in a spacious room, I can then better smell its scent.
Now I look forward to getting my jewelry and candle business up and running, just in time for Christmas. Feel free to visit my jewelry online store to shop beautiful gems for yourself, loved one, family, or friends here MysticFullMoon.com.
See you there!
Christmas is coming! It’s therefore a good idea to start looking for Christmas presents early, to avoid disappointment, stress, last minute shopping, and so on, and jewelry seem to be the perfect gifts for this season. But, it’s not just for Christmas. You can give jewellery as a gift all year round. But now it’s Christmas time, and jewelry is one of the best Christmas gifts to give to that special someone, your mom, sister (s), friends, and similar, such as ring, choker. I have sold jewelry before and found out that rings were the best selling items. We associate Christmas with something cheerful, festive, fairytale, dream, romance, and so forth. Jewelry also represents something parallel to that, which makes it the ideal Christmas present as well.
So I have worked on my jewelry online store the whole day. I just think, it’s the best time to sell jewellery. I initially wanted to sell scented candles. But when I thought about I have to make the candles and all that, then I changed my mind. It’s just too much to do to sell a candle that costs maybe £10-£15 for a travel candle, and maybe £29 for a home candle. But with jewellery, I don’t have to make it myself, maybe just some of them. But that it’s quite simple. It will take me less than a minute to make a necklace, for instance.
They could also be selling out quicker than candles, especially this time of year. I also love all things bohemian and jewelry. So, selling boho jewellery gives me the opportunity to do what I’m passionate about and make a living out of it at the same time. I will keep adding new products almost every day, so that you will have lots of different jewellery to select from, just for yourself or as a Christmas gift.
Now that I am done setting my jewellery website up. I will continue to work on my drama screenplay “The Mad Boy.”
I will try to complete my drama screenplay today, The Mad Boy. I am also working on the first chapter of the novel of the script because I will turn the manuscript into a novel as well. So, I’m working on two tasks at the same time. I have to finish the screenplay first before I can move on to the next project, which is the novel. I nearly finish revising the screenplay. Hopefully, I will finalize it this weekend. That’s why I don’t really blog that often since I’m determined to bring these two pursuits to life as soon as possible. So I have to use all that time I have to try to accomplish them as much as I can.
I have changed the title to “The Mad Boy” because I think it’s more relevant to the story. But the title could change if I had found more suitable name later on. I really want to bring this script to an end. So after this blog post, I will work on it right away until I have to go to bed. If I’m not finished it today, I will continue tomorrow morning till I’m done with it. While I’m working on the first chapter of the novel, I’m tempted to finish writing it. But there are lots of pages that need to be written, and I have to complete my screenplay first. So I have to stop working on the first chapter of the novel and focus on finishing my drama manuscript instead. Just one thing at a time. It gets really exciting now. I think it will be a good screenplay and novel.
I have a busy day ahead again today. I therefore have to plan my day wisely, otherwise I can’t get nothing done. Today is a sunny day. But summer will soon be gone. What a shame. That’s why I try to capture summer in scented candles, with all the lovely scents of summer that make you feel like summer never ends. Well, for now, I have only French lavender scent so far. But more and more aromas will be added, as soon as I have finished making them and add them to my online store BUPPHA.uk.
It’s a long process. I also have to design new labels for each perfume, packaging, containers, and so forth. Christmas will also soon arrive. So I want everything ready by then as well. It’s September now. So I have plenty of time to prepare. It gives me a peace of mind when I plan everything well ahead. I have learned from my experience that things will go terribly wrong, in most cases, when you are unprepared – no matter what you do. That’s why I try to prevent it from happening again at all costs. So from now on, I will outline everything in advance in order to avoid mistakes as much as I can. It also gives me more confidence and can then easily envision things that could go wrong, and thereby do whatever I can to stay away from them.
So today, I will start my day with the revision of my drama screenplay first, just a little bit. I try to break down the editing process of my manuscript into small chunks, to make it more achievable and realistic. I can just tell you that my drama script has a very unique story, plot, and characters. Furthermore, it’s also based on a true story which makes it original. I therefore do not post my drama screenplay anywhere, yet. I want to keep it under wraps for now until after the rewrite is complete and, perhaps, the film has been made.
Then, the rest of the day, I will spend it to focus on my candle business. There’s a lot to do as well since I just started it. So to stop myself from pulling my hair out trying to cope with all the things I need to accomplish, I have to do everything bit by bit. One small task at a time. When I have completed this one, then I can move on to the next. It’s more manageable this way. Now, I will get going with all my to-dos if I want anything to get done today.
I’m testing my new products at the moment which are tin travel candles. Each tin contains 50g candle. Travel candles are perfect when you want the scented candles that you like with you everywhere you go. It could be you want to light your favourite scented candle (s) in your office, your hotel room, a summerhouse, and so on. The same perfume (s) that you also have at home and can’t leave without. So what if you could enjoy the same nice smell (s) elsewhere, too? That’s why travel candles allow you to make any place feel like home, with the fragrances that you normally adore at home.
They will be available in a variation of scents. Now that Christmas soon arrives. So there will also be some special, lovely aromas just for Christmas. I can’t wait to introduce to you my new travel candles. It’s also very tough for me when I have to smell all the fantastic bouquets while making and testing candles. They are just so irresistible perfumes. They make my studio feel like a vivid flower garden. I just enjoy every moment making scented candles, adding some scents to them, testing them, and more. It therefore doesn’t feel like work. Time just stands still when I do what I love. You can just feel it when you do something you’re truly passionate about. Time doesn’t exist.
I was on my way home, then I passed by the London Fashion Week fashion show/event near Temple station. Just somewhere in central London, not so far from Charing Cross station as well. I then got off the bus and took some photos of it just outside. It’s the last day of the show today, too. I also am into fashion. So, everything about fashion and trend interests me. I used to work in fashion retail for many years as well. I think 10 years or more. I was just tired of it in the end since I had worked with it for so long, and also because acting is what I love the most. So it’s time for me to move on and start pursuing what I have always dreamt to be: An actor.
But my love for fashion is still somewhere within me. Although I no longer work in fashion industry. But I still love to dress and buy fashion clothes. I can see that long coat is the trend of this fall. I still have my long, beige spring coat from this year which I can easily wear it for autumn as well. There’s a lot of bright colours and vintage patterns. It’s a mixture of new and vintage, which creates a very trendy combination. So you wear something with lots of bright pattern or floral print underneath, then you put a plain jacket or very long coat over it. I think I like the mix of it. It’s kind of fresh.
