welcome to the dearsolo blog!

hello friends and welcome to the new DearSolo Blog! as you can see, i’ve moved on up to a big girl domain, changed up my theme, logo, etcetcetc! this has been a new (and pricey) endeavour for me, so suffice it to say, i have to suck it up and keep going because there’s no turning back now! no time to fear failure, fear rejection, become despondent or anything like that – i’ve committed to taking the next step with my blog and now i’m just excited to see where it will lead me!

i really love that the decision to redo/revamp my blog coincided with the ending of my matric year – i literally write my last high school exam forever tomorrow! as of 11:30am on tuesday the 25th of november 2014, i am officially (f)unemployed! at least for the next two months before i start university. in lieu of sounding corny and like michael buble, it really is a new dawn, a new day, a new life for me and i am feeling pretty good! change is good!

this long holiday will allow me to do some travelling (istanbul on wednesday, cape town a few weeks later – wee!), some fashion shoots (photographer willing), some more writing, arty things – and who knows! the opportunities are endless and i can’t wait 🙂

there is also a competition on the cards, ready to prepare you for the summertime parties you’ll be attending, so keep a look out!

thank you for reading DearSolo thus far, and as we take this new step, i hope you like it 🙂

    Congratulations Foyin! Crossing the matric finish line feels oh so good. 🙂 Let me know when you’re in Cape Town, my new job means I’ll be here until late December, so maybe we can hang! Super excited for you to join club Cape Town next year.
