    Handmade Cosmetics

    I’m blogging from my mobile. I have been working in front of a laptop all day long searching for a colourist-editor and a sound mixer. So now I’m exhausted. I can’t sit in front of a laptop no more. Luckily, WordPress has a mobile app which you can just blog on the app from your mobile – very convenient. I’m not that tired. But I don’t want to watch a film either. I don’t want to go to bed now either since I’m not tired. I must find something to do. I might look through my old recipes how to make serum. I like making my own skincare, using natural ingredients. I rarely buy skincare products. I use my own handmade cosmetics. When I’m running out of ingredients, I just go to shops around London to buy new ingredients. I know those shops well, and vice versa. Since I am their regular customer. I enjoy making my own natural skincare for my own use and as a hobby. It just brings me closer to the nature. Just the smell of natural ingredients makes me feel good already. Now I think I will make my new serum for younger looking skin. A small bottle containing 30ml of serum lasts about 1-2 months. I don’t like making too much at a time. I make small amount each time and use it up quickly. Then I make a new, fresh one after that.

    Sunday Outfit

    It’s Sunday today. I feel like dressing fabulously for the summer. Although I don’t go out much, too busy with my filmmaking project “BTO,” but dressing nice for the season at home can really make my day. I just don’t really have time for nothing else for the time being. Today will be a busy day for me as usual. I will continue my hunt for the colourist-editor and a sound mixer today. I drank beer yesterday which made me feel sleepy, so I didn’t resume my search for the remaining film crew. I knew it. I shouldn’t drink alcohol. Just one beer can hinder my productivity and slow me down. I will not drink alcohol at home from now on, not until my project is completely done. I will drink if I have to go out and socialise or network. I have to stay focussed. Otherwise, nothing can be done. So today, I will work hard again to bring my filmmaking project to an end. Then I can concentrate on something else.

    Dress to relax at home.

    Music Night

    Listening to music. When I want to relax, I turn to music not TV or films. I don’t even have a telly. Just music is enough for me. It entertains my soul better than television. I love watching movies, though. But I don’t like watching TV constantly. That’s why I got rid of the television set. I love music so much sometimes I doubt myself: Why do I want to be an actor not musician? But I love acting as much as I love music. I just don’t think I have the talent to be a musician. So, I’m happy to just pursue my dreams as an actress and a filmmaker instead. But some people do possess both skills. Just not me, which is fine 🙂

    Bacon And Egg Sandwich

    I’m making bacon and egg sandwich for my breakfast. It’s yummy when I don’t have it too often. Well, everything you make it yourself tends to taste naturally good anyway. I always have late breakfast during the weekends. I also got up late around 9am because I went to bed around 2am this morning. So many things to do. I could not therefore just go to bed although I was tired. A decent breakfast gives me the energy I need to get started my day. It will be another busy day.

    I will soon be on my way out to a vintage market. It’s Saturday, a perfect day to walk around antique market. The sun also shines and all that. I hope, it’s not gonna rain. According to the weather forecast, there will be no rain. But who knows. The weather is changing a lot at the moment. The weather will be up to 23 degree. It’s okay. I just have to wear a jacket, just in case. I don’t trust the weather in UK. I have been sick very recently despite warm weather. So I have to be careful when I go out. To have a cold when the sun is shining outside is just not fair.

    The reason I have to go out today is not just to go to a flea market, but I also have a meeting with another member of the film crew who I may potentially take on board. The filming date (s) is approaching. I’m therefore very busy. I have to do whatever I can to get things ready.

    Yummy breakfast.

    Hyde Park Music Festival

    Last weekend music festival in Hyde Park was amazing. But performance that I liked the most was Stevie Wonder. Although, so many people were disappointed that there were sound problems, so much that they left the festival mid show. It’s also raining. But for me, I didn’t mind. Seeing him perform live was what I wanted. So the poor sound didn’t affect me that much. It was worth it, in deed. Once-in-a-lifetime. Why not? The rest was ok. Celine Dion’s performance was also fantastic. But I am not a fan of her music that much, compared to Stevie Wonder. So, it was ok. I love music. So it was great seeing all legends onstage for real. Even though I wasn’t a fan of some of them.

    BST Hyde Park

    British Summer Time Hyde Park music festival is here! Celine Dion will open the festival today. Can’t wait to hear her voice for real. I don’t think I can see her clearly since the people coming to festival will be massive. It’s ok just to hear her voice. What a lovely sunny day. I will be going out shortly, heading to Hyde Park for the concert. It will be a long day today. The sun is shining and all that. Perfect for attending the music festival. After this blog post, I will take a shower, get dressed, then I’m all set. I might have some great photos to post later on.

    I managed to contact some candidates for my horror short “Blood Type O” before I go out. I spend at least a few hours or so each day to recruit cast & crew for my film. If I didn’t do that I wouldn’t be able to get the people ready for the filming dates. So I have to do whatever I can to assemble all cast & crew as soon as possible. Doing something each day is better than nothing, even just for a couple of hours. I’m also very busy with lots of things. So managing my time wisely is crucial.

    Nachos

    Lunchtime! I have just made nachos for my lunch. Mexican food is also one of my favourites. There is a Mexican eatery near my place, actually. But I haven’t been there, yet. I will one day. I just like cooking and creating delicious dishes. It’s fun and I know what’s in it. I can use quality ingredients and fresh produce. So I know the food is of superb quality. Cooking is just my hobby. Well, it’s part of my everyday life, to be precise. It’s part of my well-being and health. So, it’s not just something I do for fun. That’s why I take extra time and care to do my cooking, to achieve the exquisite dish I am after as much as possible. But sometimes, I just want something quick and simple. Therefore, Mexican snacks or food, Chinese food (noodles), burger, pizza, and the like, are the foods that I resort to when I don’t have time to cook. These types of food are yummy when you don’t have it too often. I haven’t had nachos for a very long time. So today’s the day. Next time, I might make tacos.

    Music Festival

    It’d been a very warm weekend. I enjoyed the weekend at music festival in Finsbury Park. It’s something totally different from my daily life. It’s good to experience something new, sometimes. I love music and love going to music festivals. The atmosphere at the festival was very cheerful yesterday. People were enjoying the music, dancing and singing along. It’s always like that at the music festivals, though. That’s why I like attending live music or concerts or music festivals. It’s something I always did when I was a bit younger with a group of friends. It’s just an adventure to remember, listening to music, wearing fun & fabulous clothes, eating, walking around, enjoying the whole new experience, and living like a gypsy for a day or two, depending on how many days you plan to be there, or how many days that festival you attend lasts. Time stands still when you are at music festivals. There are only happy people, singing, dancing, and partying all day long. You just live your life to the full when you are there and let the music take you to a whole new world.

    A Good Day

    Shafts of bright morning sunlight pierce in through the windows. It looks like, it’s going to be a lovely sunny day. I start my day with music. It’s a ritual thing that I do almost every day: Listen to music when I stand up and when I go to bed. Now, I am full of positive energy to go through the day. It’s going to be a good day. Whatever’s waiting for me, I’m ready. I know I am going to be extremely busy today, and for the rest of this year, to be exact. But I do what I love. So I don’t mind. I enjoy being busy with the things that interest me the most. I’d be bored myself to death if I couldn’t do what I wanted to do.

    I also get rejected all the time. This is part of an actor’s life. But I learn to take advantage of the rejections to a great extent. They just make me stronger and do whatever I can to reach my goals, just to prove them wrong. Literally. So, rejections do not discourage me. Besides, they motivate me in a way to stay on the right track, to work harder to make my dreams come true. They just confirm to yourself that you believe in yourself so much that nothing or nobody can make you doubt yourself. Period.

    Time to Relax

    When I want to relax I turn to music. Or just when I want to be inspired. Music really feeds my imagination. I like listening to music in the morning and before I go to bed. But also when I have writer’s block. Or when I want to chill out. It just gives me new energy, ideas, and inspirations that I need. Music is good for your soul as well. Of course, it depends on what music you listen to. But most music just helps to cheer you up. Therefore I think it would be a good idea if patients at mental hospitals listen to music regularly. Or maybe they do? It’s like a therapy. It totally transforms your mind and mood to the better. I don’t watch TV anymore. I listen to music instead and I couldn’t be happier. I don’t want to bombard my brain with negative stuff in the news daily. I choose to only see positive things and associate myself with positive people, who don’t try to make me feel bad about myself for no particular reason just pure bias and generalisation. Negative people are like blind persons. They choose to only see what they wanted to see – no matter what. Nothing can change the way they wanted to see you. When I stay away from pessimistic people, I feel so relieved. The world is a nice place to live, after all.
