I don't like to call kids stupid, but they were stupid kids

It's been a busy time so apologies for lack of blog but...I'M BACK!!!

Wow, where should I start? Okay so the interview for Colourful Radio was very fun. They were so enthusiastic and welcoming. Was frightened I was going to miss it because I got a taxi there as I know I get lost going up the road but did the taxi driver not get lost! I can't be late for live radio for goodness sake. But praise JC cause we made it on time and the interview was fab.

Co-Star Arts first term is going amazing, so much better than I thought it would go but we have some real talent and more people coming every week. We even made a profit which is a shocker and I have more dance work in general. It's funny every class I teach, the head of the company always wants me to make them a performance group loool. I guess I just need to accept that I am good at training kids rather than fight it. Luckily for me, most groups are amazing but one class it literally took them 15 minutes to get into a straight line. I don't like to call kids stupid, but they were stupid kids.

Do not underestimate Aerobics. Omg I was sweating like crazy. It's these female black gym instructors - they must be straight out of the Army.

I got tickets to see Justin Timberlake!!!!!!!!!! It took 3 days, ready to buy at 9 am. They had the cheek to offer me tickets at the rear side and then ask me to pay £110. I mean, is he sleeping with me for that price? But on Day 3, took 2 times and bam I got my 20/20 tickets. Was the most stressful thing ever and they count down, I think it's about 10 min to get your tickets. Stress. Now, I have to get the other 20/20 so I'm not a sad fan making up the words.

I've joined the Apple crew. My laptop that I had from uni moves at a glacier speed and the battery was dead. The family laptop decided to break down with all my stuff on there so I thought screw it. There was a lady next to me, who had 10,000 dollars in cash to spend and couldn't understand why they wouldn't serve her. She claimed it was money owed to her over the years.

Then my beloved iPod broke. I've had this iPod since I was 18, given to me by Ebru and Naomi for Christmas. My loyal iPod and the bloody audio went. Apple told me they would order me one and it would take 3-5 working days. So there I am taking my mac up and down London, 3 weeks later - no iPod so I call up Apple in a rage, to speak to this silly girl who tells me it's coming by the end of the week and obviously she just said that. So I went down to Regents Street and got a lovely girl who tells me that they don't make the parts anymore but she got me a discount on a new iPod so I can forgive her for looking at my iPod in awe and calling it 'retro.'

I'm almost at 10,000 likes on Emily FB Page. Oh yeah!!

I now have an Instagram but most of the time, I have no idea what to take a picture of. 

Because a website I was doing a blog for, took the mick with my time so now I refuse to work with them, I will post a writing tip at the end of my blogs.

Writing Tip - Always finish a story. Even if you think it's rubbish, trust me there will be magic within it. So keep writing at it, until you find your flow and once done, dissect it and make it even more brilliant.

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…
