Great Britain - Really? No seriously really?

I feel like having a right ol' rant today about London and how annoying it is at the moment. What happened to the days when guys would let you get on the bus first? (and not just because they're checking you out). Did I miss the message that said, when an empty bus pulls up, push everyone out of the way and if you have a buggy, use it as a weapon and attack everyone's feet! Or as you walk past people, don't leave them personal space just barge them with your arms or bag, which ever's best. Oh and if your kids are screaming down the bus at say 8.30 am, don't feel the need to attempt to quiet them down or at least look embarrassed. Better than sitting there and ignoring your 8 kids because you have perfected the art of tuning them out. I haven't! And this weather!!! I've been travelling from north to south all day and the buses are on a schedule beyond words. I got the strangest looks because I was grooving to my ipod in an attempt to stay warm. I really need a car. At least I can groove with a heater on.

My plan is to move to Paris asap and of course get a beach house in Nice as no one from Paris stays in Paris come Summer. I don't know what it is about France but every time I go there, I just feel so at home. And I'm rubbish at directions. Really really crap. Even in West End, I'm lost going from Leicester Square to Covent Garden on foot but in France, I can get a map and I can follow it. It's an amazing thing to see. Aleta pointed out that Parisians are rude and they are, especially on the metro but compared to London, they act like royalty. So I'm praying that whoever I marry is like 'Yeah baby lets get on the Eurostar' or I marry a hottie called Pierre who's obviously French. But the weird thing is when I escape London (all the time) I ALWAYS get home sick so I'm guessing deep down, hidden in my big toe I do somewhat like London, even though the price of eating out is a joke and the portions of a main meal is the size of a starter in America. Don't even get me started on the nachos I ate at TGI'S the other day. The only positive thing I can think off is it's pretty at night and....that's all I've got at the minute.

My amazing debut novel Emily Knight I AM... is almost ready and I'm soooo excited. I've been hooked up with amazing people who are making my dream come true and I can't wait for everyone to read it and hopefully fall in love with these characters. A Twitter and Facebook should be set up in the next coming days so I can annoy everyone with my excitement. I just want to show off my logo made by King Arthur, it's very cool.

But one of the best news I've been waiting to blurt out is I finally escaped from retail! That's a party right there! On my last day, I was just so unhelpful to every customer and I loved it!

MYSELF got through to Breakin' Convention 2012!! For non dancers, this is HUGE. It's an international dance show held in May in Saddlers Wells and it's a brilliant, inspiring weekend of dance and they want us on the last day! AAHHHH can't wait for that. And thank you to everyone who has been attending classes and buying an I <3 MYSELF tee, you're brilliant!

I
have finally realised at the age of 29 that just being myself is the way forward in life. Not like I thought I had to be someone else but I guess I wasn't sure whether to be my authentic self. I am loud, funny and opinionated and in an industry like publishing, sometimes I feel like I have to tone it down but since winning Trailblazers and being invited to so many events and getting the best opportunities, I realised that my work and my personality is what people are taking a shine too.

The biggest lesson I've learnt? I thought I knew what being busy meant...until I started a publishing house.

Being at The London Book Fair as a speaker and an exhibitor - both for the first time - was amazing. I felt so valued. I felt what I had to say and how I thought was important. We had back to back meetings and our main goal was to find a colour printing company for Hashtag, which we did. But what was so fascinating is companies we had approached as we were setting up Hashtag, who were …

England were not ready for that level of sass.

In less than a month I will be 30 years old. Oh gosh.  On the plus side I am having a Wakanda themed bash so that should be fun. My only worry is my outfit is being made for me and have been working out more so I'm just hoping the fit is still okay. I am trying to be more positive about turning 30. I think I ain't done too bad in life and it can only get better right? Still waiting for my McMansion but hopefully that comes as soon as 7am strikes on the 6th August. Hey if you don't ask, you don't get!

Loving this beautiful weather! I'm sitting in my garden writing this blog and thinking why have I not done that before? I ordered some garden furniture of eBay and then an extra chair from Ikea. Then eBay tells me that the seller that I brought the garden furniture from may or may not be legit. What?! But the latest delivery is 10th July so I have to wait to see if it comes. So now I'm sitting outside with my 1 Ikea chair minus the table and umbrella. I just can&#…

I swear when I wrote Drake, I literally heard Soulja Boy's voice saying, “DRAAAAAAKKKE!”

If you are reading this that means that you survived January! CONGRATULATIONS!!! Isn't it just the worst month? It's dark, cold, everyone is broke and it drags on for years. Even those born in January are annoyed because no-one can celebrate with them. So glad it's over!

I started 2019 with visuals from Chocolate City Comics. I have wanted to work with them for about 2 years. They are so sick and I think I sent a DM on Instagram (which they ignored) but a few months ago I spoke to them on Twitter, they checked me out and wanted to work with me. Initially I just wanted to get some original content for the Emily Knight books but they knew that I was talking to production companies, and they know pretty much all the best people in film! What a coincidence! They spoke to a very popular actor, who I can't say at this stage, but it's someone that I always wanted to play Lox Knight. He really liked the Emily concept and wants to meet with me once I have my pitch ready! T…
