I’ve been playing with my
Holga DSLR lens – so fun!
Blogcademys were nothing short of incredible. Like, seriously mind-blowing. I am forever in debt to the 60 (!) guys & gals who spent two whole days with us, each of them battling sleet, snow and precarious public transport to make it to the beautiful Curtain Road Studios in Shoreditch.
I am so immensely grateful to the ridiculously talented Richard Wakefield of
FX Media for being there to capture the magic on film, to Lisa Devlin & Emily Quinton for guest teaching and to Shell de Mar for snapping away mercilessly.
I’ll be sharing much more about what went on at both events over the coming weeks, but I couldn’t resist posting Richard’s amazing video today…
Richard Wakefield – you, dear sir, are a bit of a genius.
And it goes without saying of course, but without
Gala & Shauna by my side, my life wouldn’t be half as colourful or joyful. You really can’t put friendship like that into words. It was so hard to say goodbye in the wee hours of yesterday morning, but as they turned to leave Shauna yelled back “less than two months until we’re back together!” and I was instantly cheerful again. The end of March really can’t come soon enough. Damn that huge ocean between us.
Don’t forget we’re off to Portland & LA next. If you’d like to sign up for either of these events you can also do so right here !
More coming oh so soon…

A Sunday Kind of Love: “We Were Able to Suck the Juice Out of Their Brains”
November 18, 2012
"Jeez, is she still banging on about The Blogcademy?" I hear you wail... Well yes actually because I. am. excited! It is by far one of the biggest and most rewarding projects I've been involved in and I just can't stop smiling about the whole thing! And of course I don't want you to miss it!
Behind the Scenes at The Blogcademy
November 1, 2012
"I know this sounds crazy, but I really feel like The Blogcademy is going to be a massive game-changer for all three of us," Gala said to Shauna & I the morning after the workshop, "and I really hate that phrase..."
But you know what, I think the girl might be onto something.
A heady mix of nerves, anticipation and excitement seeped through my trip to New York this month. Lisa & I had a few other things planned, but we knew our visit was concluding with the biggie. Organising this event was a labour of love and a project of passion - squillions of emails flew back and forth over the course of just a couple of short months while Gala, Shauna & I planned every last detail whilst thousands of miles apart.
We’re Bringing The Blogcademy to… LONDON!!
November 14, 2012
Cor blimey guv'nor, it's true! We're off to London-town for the next instalment of The Blogcademy madness and we couldn't be more excited!
It didn't take much persuading, but I've coerced Gala & Shauna into hopping on a plane to do the next Blogcademy workshop on my turf. To say I'm excited is a HUGE understatement. Come on Britain, let's show these international playgirls a good time! Shauna has never even been to the UK... I can't wait to get that gal in a black cab, by a red phone box and eating fish n chips. Lisa & I managed to get her drinking tea in New York, it's only a matter of time until she's a fully fledged Anglophile!
The Blogcademy: New York City!
August 20, 2012
Isn't it amazing when a plan comes together? In the weeks running up to today's announcement I've been literally seconds away from tweeting my excitement and giving the whole game away. In fact anyone that knows me 'in real life' will be well aware about how rubbish I am at keeping secrets. Like... literally terrible. I actually don't know why anyone would ever tell me anything because I'm the first person to accidentally say "OMG you will never guess what I just heard..."
Which is why it has been utter torture for me not to scream this from the rooftops I'M GOING TO NEW YORK AND DOING A TWO DAY BLOGGING WORKSHOP WITH GALA & NUBBY!!!!
Phew... that felt goooooooood. You'll have to excuse me for being so damn uncool about it all...

The Blogcademy online Q&A session is starting right now. Sign up now for the bargain price of $7 to watch and participate in the action. If you can;t tune in now though, don't worry your ticket will give you access to a recording of the action forever. I do have to warn you though, I only got into Portland late last night so I'm pretty darn jet-lagged... it may not be a pretty sight. Thank God I have Gala & Shauna to keep me awake and excited!
The Blogcademy Down Under: Melbourne
November 30, 2013
When we launched our 2013 Blogcademy world tour last March, we were blown away by how quickly the tickets started to sell, but no city was as fast as Melbourne. Within only a few days the class had sold out and so we made the executive decision to extend our trip down under and add a second date to the mix - and I'm so glad we did, Melbourne was one of my favourite cities to teach in all year!
The Blogcademy World Tour & Live Online Q&A!
March 19, 2013
Sometimes you have a little crazy idea but you just know you have to run with it. The butterflies in your tummy tell you that you're onto something exciting and pretty darn life changing. That's just how I felt when we came up with the The Blogcademy, and its exactly how I'm feeling today as I'm here to tell you that we're announcing a world friggin' tour and an online Q&A livestream!
