Sometimes, I like to treat myself with some lovely gifts from my own online jewellery store Sparkly Dolls. Valentine’s Day will also soon be here, it’s therefore time to give myself some love as well. Besides, I sell jewellery, then I have to wear them, too. I want to be sure that each jewellery I stock is of good quality. If I wear them myself and notice that they are not of good quality, I will discontinue selling them and find other suppliers that provide good quality jewellery instead. Therefore you can get peace of mind purchasing jewellery from my online store Sparkly Dolls since they are being tested and worn by myself. All pure gold on my online store are also from trusted suppliers in UK and are all hallmarked.
The same with sterling silver. They are all of highest quality. Especially the silver rings (with cz stones), I love wearing them myself. They are just so cute & pretty. Again, they are from trusted suppliers in UK. I like buying all my jewellery from suppliers in UK because I can then communicate with the suppliers more easily (some of them I visit their showrooms myself), and can therefore see with my own eyes how they operate, the quality of their jewels, talk with them face-to-face, and so on.
Some of the jewels, I design & make them myself. Surprisingly, they are the best selling items as well. I just love designing stuff and make them myself, too. So each jewellery I make is something special and is a piece of art because I make it with passion and care. It’s something I’m truly interested in and enjoy creating art. It’s like making films and writing screenplays. It’s also art. Art & design are just my top interests. I never get tired of it.
If you’re still looking for Valentine’s gifts for loved ones or just yourself, it’s not too late! Just head over to my online store NOW to find something for yourself or the people you care about.
See you around!
I am watching my favourite comedy film again tonight. I just don’t know what to see. So I simply watch my fave comedy again and again. I like watching comedies when I want to relax and have some laugh. I try not to work on my jewellery online store for just one night because I am working on my new startup business 24/7, pretty much. I can’t relax when my business is quite new. I want it to have a successful launch as soon as possible. Then, by that time, I can take it easy.
This weekend, if I have time, I also have to prepare my candle making. As I mentioned in my past blog posts that I am going to make and sell scented candles as well. I love organic candles. So my scented candles are going to be made with 100% natural ingredients such as pure soy wax, pure essential oils. It just makes me feel good when I know I am using things that are made of natural materials, which are harmful to both humans and environment. I think I’m not the only one. I think we all do. So the idea of making organic candles for people who care about wellbeing and nature as much as I do just comes naturally to me.
Besides working on my jewellery business, I’m also very busy with my acting and filmmaking career, mostly my own films and projects. I had just finished shooting my second short film last year “Blood Type O.” This year, I will try to finalise the post-production as soon as possible, so that I can also give my cast & crew the copy of the project as promised. I know it is important to them as it is to me, so that they can use it to promote themselves and to further their careers. I hope my short film could help them move their careers forward to some extent.
Once my second short is complete I will start shooting my first feature film as well, which I write the script myself. It’s a drama. It’s also based on a true story, just not mine. But some people who I know very well. I am very excited to make this feature film since it’s going to be a good film. Well, I just know it – partly because the screenplay is original, and partly because the story is based on a true event. So you can’t go wrong with that. I just can’t wait to start filming it soon. I just have to make this film. I can feel it. It has to be told. When you watch the film, you will know why.
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.
