You know the twins that dance on Beyoncé's tour?

It's been a challenging month. I've been allowing people's opinions to get the better of me and letting their doubt become my doubt. I started having thoughts like 'what if I'm just wasting my life' and feeling unsure of myself but you know what? I allowed myself to have a pity party for myself and now I'm back in the game! No-one is going to make me question my future and what I should be doing. Yeah, I didn't finish uni, so what? I had my reasons for it and I'm STILL doing exactly what I planned to do. Don't get me wrong I'm not against uni but I am against someone trying to tell me that I will never make something of myself because I don't have a degree because from where I am standing, I am starting to make something off myself WITHOUT a degree.

I got an official letter sent to my house. I was a bit nervous to open it because it's usually bad news but it was a copyright certificate from USA, Library of Congress for my book! Woo hoo! Got to frame that at some point.

Someone hacked into my email and sent an email requesting money because apparently I was stuck in Cyprus. I found it so funny because I was with Aleta when she got the email from me. Anyway the police and fraud got involved but Microsoft with it's billion dollar industry refused to close down my account! Managed to retrieve it and the silly person's email was all there for me to see, so now fraud have it :D

I went to Breakin' Convention 10 year anniversary. OMG the UK Night was so good. Zoonation, honestly just blow my mind. How can 2 people just fill up the stage like that? The choreo, their presence was amazing. I was thinking the whole time, that's how you put on a show, absolutely amazing and I saw these bone breakers from Brooklyn. It was so disgusting. They were like contortionists or something and apparently they all taught themselves to be that double jointed. Yuck! Rosie kept screaming and shouting at 'demons' lool
Prior to going to BC, I went to a jam in the park. It was pretty fun, just chillin with my girls but then one half of Les Twins came! You know the twins that dance on Beyoncé's tour? I think this one was Laurent, he is really cute. But you know me, Miss cool. I couldn't ask for a picture! So I took one from afar and zoomed in ;) The picture is below so you know I'm not lying. I watched a documentary about them on Sunday night so I'm officially obsessed. I knew there was a reason why I love France so much.
The After Party was pretty good. First time I ever went. The vibe was pretty cool but  the music started getting more and more mellow, I was thinking where's the party at? I need some Meek Mill in my life.

Emily Knight book 2 is going well. Still at the editing phase. Gosh, I hate editing but it's looking better and stronger every week. Still trying to find out how to make the book more commercial as I keep getting TV interest for the first book so praying someone will help me.

Off to Birmingham in a few weeks to spend time with Naomi and to get out of London for a bit. Been stressing out so much lately, I need an excuse to relax. Plus we're going to see The Great Gatsby, so excited to go. My Aunt invited me to Liverpool for half term, I asked how much tickets were, she said £70 return! Err I can go to Paris for that price.

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…
