'I woke up like this!'

There’s a saying ‘Give honour, where honour is due’, so I want to give honour to Nelson Mandela. A true hero and light in our world. What he achieved in his life was so beautiful, if I could make a quarter of the difference he made whilst alive, I would be so honoured. I love how the world is celebrating his life - just full of bright colours, dancing and songs. Beautiful. It's funny, I have heard so much racism amongst black people, which is embarrassing for everyone. This black West Indian man was cussing Africans. He is obviously an idiot as he is cussing himself. It just shows the ignorance of people and their own culture. So sad.

R.I.P to Paul Walker. I'm not the biggest Fast and Furious fan but he is one of the most beautiful men I have ever seen.

I have a major publishing company, like MAJOR reading Emily right now. The story to how this happened is so amazing but I will share and reveal publishers once I know what’s going on. Let's all pray for life changing decisions.

I went to the dentist after 4 years. I have no clue what prompted me to go but I did and I regret it so much. I had 3 cavities and it took 3 separate sessions to sort them out. They injected me like 6 times each session because I just wasn’t numb enough but I can say proudly, I am officially done. It was completed and I don’t have to go back for 6 months!! Wooo Hoo. I told the receptionist, ‘I don’t care if I’m bleeding from my teeth, you will not inject me again!’ To be honest, they may not see me in 6 months.

Can we just take a moment for Beyonce?  I was meant to post this last week and for some reason I felt like it wasn't ready and then the Queen dropped a secret album and oh my! I have always been a massive Beyonce fan. I honestly think she is the best performer right now and I find her very empowering but this album. I applaud her. The visual images, especially in 'Mine' with Drake is stunning. Yes, I am seeing more of her butt than I would like to but she knocks everyone out of the park. Aren't you just inspired? This lady is on a world tour, with a baby and has recorded and shot sick videos in-between. Haha and I thought I was busy. I loved the way she used Jay-Z in the vids (Kanye & Kim take note) and the black supermodels in 'Younce.' My fav song is 'Flawless.' Next time someone says 'You look nice today.' I will calmly say, 'I woke up like this. Flawless.' Ha love it!
I've seen lots of hating comments and to be honest, I don't see how you can hate and not be in awe of someone who can release an album with no promo and it goes to number 1 around the world. Kicked me up the bum for sure.
One guy wrote 'If there was an award for how much an album could be about sex, she would be double platinum.' Err.....isn't she married?? If you can't talk about sex when you're married, when can you? What's Rihanna's excuse?

So I am proud to say that I got tickets to Beyonce!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOO HOOOOOO. I'm so excited. So it's her, Drake and Mr JT. Yes for my life! I thought I would be nice and put up the password to her site so people could find tickets easier but there obviously was some confusion. People asking me bare questions. 'Are the seats good?' 'Is it cheaper?' "What's it in £?' I'm sorry, I didn't know I was Google.

I’m part of a Think Christmas, Think Books Campaign ran by the amazing PR Helen Lewis and it’s about giving books to less fortunate people for Christmas. So some lucky people are gonna get some warriors in their lives.

'Carrie' is the best film. I don't know if it was meant to be funny but my goodness it was hilarious. It's when the Mum causally says 'witch' as Carrie is making her float in the air. I don't remember the original being as fun. When I went to see Catching Fire, all these guys came in like about 10 of them and it couldn't of been planned but there was a pause in the film and one of them let out the worst, loudest fart.

Co-Star Arts is doing very well and we’re coming towards our Christmas show. Bless! So come on down, it’s free! 4.30-5 @ Mildmay Community Centre, Woodville Road, Islington, N16. with the students doing their pieces and special guests Jared (Protocol Dance Company) CeCe (Slum Civilians) and singer Ebru. Excited much?

One of my jobs, the owner thought the kids, 7 year olds, were going to do a 20 min dance piece…I mean, I have no words.

Writing Tip: Listen to the funny, interesting things people say to each other and write it down. Will help with making dialogue more interesting.

And lastly, thank you all for reading and supporting my blog and my journey! Will see you all with more tales in 2014. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year (in case I don't write another blog before 2104) and Emily Knight is a GREAT Christmas present to get for people. Just saying!

'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
