“I'M A TRANSVESTITE! SO YOU CAN'T TALK TO ME LIKE THAT!”

My mate and choreographer Kloe made this amazing solo earlier this year and now she's put it into movie mode! I'm so proud of her and her dedication to progressing herself. A lot of people should take note and stop waiting for life to start but just go for it and don't think about what other people say. I love this girl loads and I'd advise anyone who wants to see some real dance check it out on YouTube. She even does a headstand on the pavement!

It's been a challenging week but I feel like in my personal life my life has taken a U turn which is great but work is another thing. Sometimes teaching dance is so frustrating when people take your creativity and you invest so much time into them and they just disrespect you or you work for someone, training up more than 150 people and they disrespect you. But what I know is that I'm better than their poor attitude and I'm good at what I do so if they don't appreciate me, someone else always comes along that does. So now I'm most likely out of a dance job but I adore the kids that come and there so hungry for dance so hopefully something new and exciting will come along, where they can continue to grow.

MYSELF open class has started!! And it's sooo gd. It's attracted really nice, talented girls that are just on it in a way that gets me excited and Kloe's choreo is beautiful, so if you're available on a Monday night 6.30-8 at St Mary's Youth Club. Come on down. I feel like I haven't danced in ages, well I guess a month is long and my body's craving it. Rosa said dance is our drug and everyday I'm starting to believe her more and more.
I've always felt like I've fought against dance because it's a hobby and I don't want a career out of it but I've come to the point now where I know I can't not dance and I get so many amazing opportunities through dance that a lot of the time I feel like I don't even try for, it just happens. I'm starting to think I should stop fighting what's clearly part of me and just see what happens. Being a kids writer is number 1 but hey if dance gives me a banging figure, who am I to fight against it? :)

My work place attracts the most random people EVER. We had this lady, well I thought it was, come in to the store. She went downstairs, then came upstairs and shouted at me that no one was downstairs to take her to the fitting room. So I said, “Cool, I'll come down.”
 I went downstairs and she barged past this blonde lady who was being served at the till and then had the cheek to look back at her and give her a dirty look. The blonde lady, who looks really reserved, goes nuts. She's shouting out, "Lets go outside. I'm gonna bust you in your face.”
Then the lady who barged into her shouts—so randomly, "I'M A TRANSVESTITE! SO YOU CAN'T TALK TO ME LIKE THAT!" I was cracking up so much. Then my manager, probably because he realises she is a he tells her/him to leave the store and once again she/he screams "BUT I'M A TRANSVESTITE." Then the blonde girls Mum says, "I'd get a refund love." That was a fun day.

Got an email about an opportunity to write for Bliss magazine! I went out the next day and brought a copy. It's really changed since I was a kid because children these days are more fashion conscious and a bit more boy crazy! Fingers crossed they respond with some good news.

Channel 4 called me asking me to be a part of a series they were doing. I don't even know how they got my number but I said yeah and send me the details. They sent me all the promotional info for it and the series was about The Joys of Teen Sex!!!!! Seriously?

I hate those few days when you've got barely any money and pay days is in a few days but it seems so far away but you've agreed to over time so then you have to buy lunch and use up more money!! I've put myself on a strict budget as I'm saving up for driving lessons and a Mac but clothes just keep calling out to me. Honestly my love for clothes have just blossomed and I love beautiful clothes but my wardrobe is breaking from all the clothes so I must control myself and I need to learn how to work ebay! I did buy a playsuit because it was gorgeous and I don't own a playsuit and I've been waiting for it to come into work but it came back as a refund in my size, so not buying it would of been silly, right?
Went dinner with the ladies from work to Nandos and had a blast. I have the best co-workers. Sol introduced me to the nicest cupcake ever and Krisztina took me lipstick shopping as I own zero lipsticks cause I can't find the right shade and the wrong shade on my big lips will make me look like a clown. After about half an hour in Superdrug, we found the perfect one. Rouge casual, Sweet Kiss by Bourjois is apparently my shade and it looks really hot. She did good!!

'You want a bubble butt and you don't want to work hard?'

I know my weekly posts aren't exactly going to plan but I think you guys should allow me. I am doing better than once a month right?

The Author School Day was incredible! It's such a weird process because Helen and I are always stressed out and then the day runs smoothly. The speakers were fantastic! The authors were chatty and asked loads of questions. I finally got to meet Katherine Webber author of Wing Jones. She gave me such a great quote for my Emily book and is so sweet in person. We saw each other and was like 'Selfie!'  Honestly, I just love The Author School and now we are planning our London Book Fair one and tickets are already on sale. Now we are doing a different ticketing scheme from tickets selling from £50 all the way to £70, so if you book quick you can get some really cheap tickets but if you leave it to the last minute, you will grab an expensive one. So chuffed that Lit agent Clare Wallace will be back to do a full class and do one-to-ones!! Book

We really wanted to laugh but didn't want to bring too much Hackney and Peckham vibes

Merry Christmas!!!!!!!

I seriously can't believe we are here already. I remember last Christmas like it happened a few months ago. I have already changed my food mentality. Had pizza for breakfast and cake for lunch and I worked out all week for the privilege.

So this is my second to last post of the year. I know guys, sad times but I think my 2018 posts are going to be even better than this year. God willing great and hilarious things continue to happen that I can share with you all.

I had my mini's do a dance performance to O Holy Night for Christmas and I had one of the best ideas I've had all year! I wanted Shiloh, who is about 10 months, to be dressed as an angel and to be sitting in the middle, while the little ones dance around her. See her mum got my vision but some people (Anneliese) didn't and guess what? It worked perfectly! My mini's were super cute and then you had Shi sitting on this little white seat swinging her fat little legs with wings on. Result…

2017 - WE MADE IT!!

Well we made it to another year! Thank God! The amount of natural disasters, terror attacks, we really need to be thankful that we made it.
This has been an awesome year. I truly feel like 2017 set the foundations for my life. Existing things were brought up to another level and for 2018, it's just going to flourish. I have the best feeling about next year. I can't explain it but I know it's going to be one to remember (in a good way)
It's so funny because at the beginning of the year I said I wanted to be single and I have dated more guys this year than I ever have! A lot of frogs (no surprise) but I did meet a special American who has set the bar moving forward. I couldn't even go back to these waste boys even if I tried. So for 2018, ladies don't drop your crown especially for no frog.




Here's my highlights of this year
