'I thought Django Unchained was a concert...'

I exercised literally from 11am-8pm, finishing off with Leanne's killer Zumba session. I didn't even know they did sit ups in Zumba let alone 150 of them. I limped unattractively to the bus stop.

The problem with me is I get bored very easily. I don't know why that is but after a while I just tune out and when I'm bored, I usually do something very silly that I regret later. Sooo my plan is to fill my days with something, ANYTHING! So that my brain is constantly focused on something. I think that's why I have that weird fear of marriage. I just think forever is a long time and what if I get bored of being married? Guys think that girls dream of their wedding day to the T. I don't. I've never thought about a dress, colour scheme. In fact I'm the girl who has nightmares that I get proposed to and I don't say anything. My other nightmare is that it's my dress rehearsal for the wedding and I run away and no-one can find me and everyone is pissed at me.

These past 2 weeks, a lot of my friends have been talking about their ex-boyfriends. I can't stand anyone being okay with my exes that's my friend. I just think leave it out! The worst thing (it makes me cringe) is when your friends beg it with your ex for various reasons, maybe they admire him for x,y,z or they want a favour but it really annoys me. Like for instance, a friend of mine responded to an ex with Thank you! :) XXX <3 - Isn't that a bit much? I saw that and thought are you okay? I'm never okay with friends exes, I've been known to even shout at them the odd time. Is it too much to ask for people to ignore mine? NO it's not!!

Went to dinner with the MYSELF girls where we spent the majority of the night cussing each others exes. It was hilarious. One of the girls thought her bf was gay but didn't care because he got her over hot! loool we started a twitter war - Tanya tweeted at me that no-one exes were as bad as mine. Oh dear - then everyone started asking me why did you even go with him? You know when people are cussing something and everything there saying is true it's just best not to respond, so I didn't. Tan claimed hers was the best looking...until we saw a picture!

I've started saying loool instead of just laughing. How weird is that?

I watched a girl online, Giovanni Plaistow, I think her name was supposedly take out a tampon and eat it. What a pathetic fame whore. The lengths people go to for people to know their name. This Kardashian generation is getting crazy! When did talent become unnecessary?

Naomi has left me for 3 MONTHS to help orpahns in Uganda. She was gone for 6 weeks in Hong Kong and by the 4th week I was like 'where is she?!!'

My group MYSELF had a competition at this show called Show & Prove and came 2nd!! I was so happy for them. It was a set without Kloe and it finally showed those idiot people who say can they perform without Kloe what we can do. What do they think would happen? They would stand on stage and play dumb? That performance definitely shut a few people up and it's about bloody time. I couldn't go to the show because we were celebrating my brother's 30th bday. We went to see Django Unchained. I fought hard for Les Mis and failed miserably. I thought the film was about a cowboy not slavery! But it was a sick film and extremely funny. That evening I spoke to Aleta about the film and she said 'Oh it's a film, I thought Django Unchained was a concert.' When I finally stopped laughing, I asked, 'Haven't you seen the posters everywhere?' She replied, 'Nah, I just saw all the tweets saying Django is sick and I thought that must be some good music.'

Jonzi D -Breakin Convention mastermind told us at our BC Audition that Kloe is lucky to have us as dancers. Jazmyn looked at me and smiled as I've been saying that for years! He also said 'Myself have a unique style that no-one is doing right now and it's very special.' Best praise ever.

Sent out all books to PR contacts, so fingers crossed I get amazing responses. Helen read my book and said she couldn't put it down! Result! Spoke to Mr Giles Greenfield, who said it was great my book was getting positive responses. I'm still deciding who will do the 2nd Emily book but it will most likely definitely be him or another illustrator I've been speaking too.

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…
