2013 = Where To Start?

So another year has gone and it's healthy to reflect on the great stuff that has happened, so we don't get caught in this 'I didn't get etc' attitude, so here are my highlights of the year.

 - Getting Beyonce, JT and Drake tickets for 2014
 - Being a part of my first ever charity as an Author, the 'Think Christmas, Think Books' Campaign
 - Starting a creative arts school for young people, Co-Star ARTS
 - Filming my first ever dance video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTPmzehxBLQ
 - Getting the best press for Emily Knight, interviews and awesome reviews
 - Almost reaching 10,000 likes on Emily FB Page, I think I'm 400 likes away
 - Getting in trouble with security for being too close to Buckingham Palace
 - Signed to Raimondi and Campbell Literary Agency. Dream!
 - Going to my first ever festival, Wireless and seeing Jay-Z, Iggy Azalea, Miguel, Kendrick Lamar, Calvin Harris and getting through the whole day only spending a tenner.
 - London Book Fair
 - The CBBC showing interest in adaption of Emily
 - Getting screen time in 'Street Dance AllStars The Movie'
 - Receiving a copyright certificate from Library of Congress, USA
 - Meeting publishers from HarperCollins at work, who were amazing to me
 - Meeting a Les Twin (Laurent, i think)
 - Seeing one of the best musicals ever, The Bodyguard
 - Royalty cheques
 - More dance work
 - Seeing The Rain Room at The Barbican


This year has been very cool and I'm excited to see what 2014 brings for me. One thing for sure, will be a traditional publishing contract so watch this space. Thank you so much for the support!

Have a great New Years Eve and see you next year!!

'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.
