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.

'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
