2012 = A Legendary Year!!!

So today is the last day of the best year I have ever had. Honestly, I was told by my Pastor that this year would be like Days of Heaven on Earth and it really was. Just a few of my highlights
 - Releasing my first ever book, Emily Knight I AM
- Going to the Brit Writers Awards 2012
- All the amazing interviews I got to do for my book with BBC 1XTRA, Brit Writers etc and the recommended reads my book got as well as the free advertising! Cheers!
 - Having a launch party
 - Passing my driving test and getting a car for Christmas
 - Being promoted at work
 - Becoming a blogger for Brit Writers
 - Going to the Olympics
 - Booking Stratford Circus to host Myself's show Icon in March 2013
 - Performing at Breakin' Convention for the 2nd time
 - Filming Street Dance All Stars The Movie and filming BBC 1's The Apprentice
Woo it has been a great year for me and for the people I care about and I am so ready to see 2013!!!

My obsession with Taylor Lautner has slightly dulled since the ending of Twilight. I felt so emotional watching the last movie and I honestly felt like I had gone through a break up. Me and Chelsea stayed to the very end at the cinema, like the weirdos we are because we are 'true fans' as Chelsea put it and to drown my sorrows, she sent me the pic above. That is love. Just take a moment for that stomach.
It's funny the first time she forced me to see Twilight I was so against it. I was at the front of a very long cue with overexcited girls and barriers put around us, like we were at a concert and not going in to watch, what I thought would be a crap film but when the scene in New Moon of Taylor walking topless through the rain, I converted instantly.

So to sign of for 2012, I just want to thank everyone for their endless support and reading this crazy blog of mine. I will be blogging every other Monday so that's 2 blogs a month, you lucky things! I realised that a lot seems to happen so I need to fill ya'll in. Have a great new year beautiful people!!  Ciao for now xxx

  1. Ha hah! Fancy finding you! I was on Brit Writers checking out the rules in terms of what to do when it comes to sending off your book to the Dragon's Den - I mean agents - and I see this good luck message by Abiola Bella.
    I check out your site, see your picture and WHAM! It's you!
    Your message sure as hell inspired me.
    Keep going...Keep going...Keep going!!!
    (I still faintly remember the first story I ever read of yours, The Magnolia...something, help me out here! lol)

    Peace!

    2. Heya,

      Well, it's a little stagnated at the moment! I finished one of my many titles (the one I decided to take seriously) and am putting it to rest until June. I'll look at it again in summer, work on a synopsis, polish that along with a query then I dunno, collect rejection slips until I self publish lol? Who knows!
      The Jouney is long and winding...

'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
