We call it Bear Day!

I have officially christened the 6th August as Bear Day because it's my birthday! I'm officially 25 now and I feel extremely grown up, even had a talk with my friend about mortgages the other day THAT'S how grown I am.

I've been trying to get into more schools on the book days, you know - Roald Dahl Day, Children's Book Week, World Book Day etc but I don't understand schools. You would think they would be gagging for writers to come to their school. I mean when I was at school, the only writer I met was Michael Rosen, who is fab but I never met any other author and I would of loved that. J. K. Rowling is never gonna come to the schools so be happy any writer does! Anyway after time spent sending out emails getting responses like yeah, this sounds good blah blah I'm now going to stop forcing the school thing. I have a website, twitter, fb even an instagram now so if people want me they can holla.

And someone did. A radio station called Colourful Radio wants me to come in tomorrow to give a LIVE talk for their book corner!!!! They messaged me via my website and I am so excited, I just hope I don't say anything stupid or swear....

Life is pretty good right now, everything that was stressing me out earlier this year has now flipped and is looking grand. Decided that I'm going to take more control of my opportunities after experiencing too many disappointments and false hopes sooooooo I have created a Saturday Arts School for young people called Co-Star Arts! Offering Dance, Singing, Fashion, Creative Writing, I mean everything so we launch on October 5th and I am beyond excited. We already have young people interested so this could turn into something amazing. The best thing is I'm doing it with my mates, it just clicked one day  - why are we chasing people to help them? We have the talent, they should be coming to us so BOOM here's Co-Star Arts. Check it out on or Twitter @CoStarArts and of course we follow back.

Went to a 31st birthday party which was a bouncy castle party. I don't have normal friends.

On to the 3rd book of Emily Knight. I just figured while I'm waiting on Raimondi and Campbell to get me a publishing deal, I'm going to just write as many stories about Emily that my brain can think off.

I'm teaching so many dance classes right now, I'm sure I'll drop a dress size. Win Win.

I finally saw Buckingham Palace. For some reason I thought it would be covered in gold. Almost got arrested for coming past the gates. Maybe there should of been a sign? Or even some rope? Silly policeman.

I know in my last blog I insulted the name North West. It is still a stupid name but she is soooo cute!!

The VMAS. Miley Cyrus. That is all.

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
