2015 - Double the blessings!

I can honestly say, hand on heart, that this year has been flipping awesome! I was writing down all of the cool things that have happened and I was so surprised that it was literally double the blessings from last year. 2015, I went into it with big dreams and less fear and it worked. God has been amazing and I have had so many fun and new opportunities. I feel that I have grown a lot and I feel more zen, which is a great feeling. I cannot wait for 2016! I'll be releasing my second book! Can you believe it?? And my aim is to have at least three books out by the time I am thirty. Here are my highlights for the year

 - Launching The Author School with Helen, the launch party at Beaufort House, the first session with the amazing speakers
 - Launching The Lil' Author Skool
 - Finishing my dance story, hopefully to be released by 2017
 - Finishing the second book in the Emily Knight series
 - Funding from Virgin StartUp and going to Virgin HQ
 - The London Book Fair 2015 and being offered a publishing deal (not the right one but still very cool)
 - New York Book Expo
 - Speaking events and realising that I am pretty good at it! Hope to do more next year
 - Lox - Emily Knight Warriors pop-up blog - success!
 - Keeping up the Wireless tradition with my girls. Went to their 10th birthday party with Drake headlining AND got them for thirty something quid instead of eighty. Holla!
 - Being in The Bookseller, The Mirror and Love Sunday Magazine
 - Getting Janet Jackson tickets for Melissa bday for 2016
 - Getting AMAZING tickets for my brothers bday (can't say what incase he reads this but it's dope)
 - Having the best Bear Birthday month - Harry Potter studios, Matilda the musical, Benihana
 - Spoken to by Prophets about my future
 - Actor, Taye Diggs following The Author School twitter (OMG)
 - Discovering the amazingness that is Bubbletea. You haven't lived unless you have it in Belgium. Yum
 - Bournemouth Beach
 - Belgium with my sissy
 - Growth in all the dancers that I teach and creating some of my best dance pieces
 - Free books. I legit have no space on my bookshelf anymore
 - Costume party as Cruella De Ville
 - Getting the best cover art in life for Emily 2
 - Winter Wonderland
 - Fergie becoming a cat model. You go Fergz

Even just looking at these highlights gives me goosebumps. Jackie Collins passing away was so heartbreaking as she is one of my fav authors but what a legacy she has left and I can only pray that I can achieve what she did.  I now go into 2016 with an open mind, gigantic dreams and faith. Let's do this!

Thank you so much for reading my blog and to everyone that is supported me and my book in anyway. Thank you. Even if not everything you wanted didn't happen in 2015, go into 2016 with your mind set and don't let fear block you. Remember, some people didn't make it to the end of the year and you did!
Lastly, WISHING ALL MY BEAUTS A HAPPY NEW YEAR! See you in 2016 xxx

'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
