How to get the most out of your headshots session!
1. Write a list of LOOKS you are going for: (be specific)
- Fun and warm mom
- Detective who can kick some ass
- Top negotiator lawyer
- Fierce super hero
- Pilates spunky instructor
2. Watch some current commercials, TV shows and films to see how these people dress. Take a snap shot of it on your phone as reference.
A smoothie a day keeps the doctor away. Every morning I try to have a smoothie for breakfast after I drink a glass of filtered water or warm water with lemon juice. If I eat a huge meal the night before, the next day I balance it out with a smoothie. It's affordable, convenient and makes me feel like I'm doing something good for my body.
We officially moved to east LA in April! It is so nice that we finally settled in since for the past 6 months before that I was driving back and forth non-stop from San Diego to LA every week . My body was so exhausted from moving, I literally just stayed home on my couch for weeks. I didn't film many new videos, and I took a much needed break from social media. I had some down time to allow my brain to chill out and deactivate for a little while. I stopped focusing on my career plans, didn't go to any acting classes or casting workshops for a month, and it felt great just living life with my family!
We live in an area where all the Asians congregate, so there are plenty of Chinese, Korean, Japanese restaurants and cafes to choose from! All within ten minutes driving distance! The not so exciting side to living in this area is that all the Chinese people assumes I speak Mandarin, which I wish, so it gets pretty annoying when they give me this dirty look like "What!? You don't speak Chinese?!" I don't even want to explain myself by saying, "I speak Cantonese. I'm from Hong Kong." I just want to tell them "This is America, I speak English." Secretly, I wish I spoke fluent Mandarin. I can sing in Mandarin though.
The flip side is that I often get asked "where are you from?" by well meaning, curious White people who are trying to make small talk. The last time someone asked me that question at a Vegas tradeshow I replied, "Here." He persisted to ask me again, "Really? Where are you really from?" I replied, "Here." Then he stopped for a moment, started talking about something else with my friend, and then asked me again!! It's so annoying. All my Asian friends have experienced this. ALL OF THEM. For real. Attention well meaning, curious White people: PLEASE STOP ASKING ME THAT QUESTION. I know you don't mean any harm by it, but perhaps we can have a conversation about a nice restaurant or a cool music video. Sorry you won't get to use the only two Mandarin words you know like, "NEE HAW!" ("hello" in mandarin) on me. I already feel like I'm always the foreigner.
Sometimes "loving your life" is hard. We are encouraged to do more, want more, strive harder and dream bigger, but is all this focus in the future really making us happy?
It's been a while since I went out on an artist date. You might ask what is an "Artist Date?"
I love watching my son, he has such an innocent and fearless spirit. Whatever he does amuses me and I'm reminded daily to be playful.
Do exactly what the blog title says. Sometimes you just need to FUCK OFF.
This week has been both amazing and exhausting. It started out with a lot of auditions, appointments and meetings then I caught a cold from baby Sky. Now I haven't had a cold since before I got pregnant which was like in 2015. I don't get sick since I do all the preventative measures so my body can heal itself before it manifests sickness. Luckily, I stopped the cold from wiping me out by practicing this energy clearing technique plus some hot yoga in the shower. I am thankful for this cold, it reminded me to love myself even more by pampering myself. I took a well deserved half day off from mommy-hood and got myself an organic custom facial and foot massage. It was a very relaxing half day I must say.
Most of you won't even finish watching this video till the end to find out what number 5 is. Or you will press fast forward and skim through this ten minutes video to find out what number 5 is. We are missing out on life when we are always in a hurry. There are so many free resources waiting for us to digest, and if we allow it, can elevate our lives to a higher level. If we would just pay attention, slow down, allow our minds to absorb the beauty that surrounds us and become more self-aware to our inner mind and surroundings, our worlds will become more peaceful.
