Hello my lovies, say hello to CANNES!
I've been all over the place!
Hello my darlings, u must be thinking I don't love u any more!
..................Far from it, there's no other way to say it, other than to just spit it out........
I've been running around like a headless chicken for the past 3 weeks and it doesn't seem to be slowing down!
I was preparing everything for my trip to Cannes, which by the way was beyond fantastic,( will be putting up pictures as I finish writing this) I had a blast and it was a success on so many different levels I'm literally busrting with happiness.
But since I'm just a one-man-show, which is very good at times b'cos I have complete creative control, it's also time consuming since I have to do EVERYTHING myself and so I've added a new talent to my resume....."Circus act"
A multiple juggler to be exact b'cos that's how I feel, she laughs.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, it's just that everything now has to be prioritized & with my Norwegian classes coming @ the very top of the list. Might I add that it's a pure labour of love as I really enjoy learning the language and I'm getting a hang of it day by day.
Also I'm creating my own WEBSITE as we speak!!!! Yey!
So excited and it's been a long time coming, it's going to be FABULOUS with all the bells & whistles.
All the movies I've acted in, the countries I've visited, fashion and much much more.
I can assure you, you are going to looooooooove it.
It's going to be GLOBAL, b'cos I'm global or at least that's how I feel, after all, I was born in Moscow, I'm a very proud African, lived must of my life in England and America, and now I live in the beautiful principality of
Of course it's going to be global, just look at all I have to play with, smiling.
And 1 more thing i'm adding to the mix.............we are going to have GUESTS coming unto the show that will be aired from the website, I tell u, it's going to be fun, fun fun my sweeties.
Ok enough for now.
