There’s something incredibly crippling about being a precocious child and growing up to become a somewhat mediocre adult. No more are the days of adulation and praise; of easy A’s and early nights; of hard work begetting brilliant results. As difficult as it was to comes to terms with, the past fourteen or so months have been inundated with personal failures and a lot of introspection.

I know I usually end off my year with a sort of review and new year prospective blog post, but truth be told, I’ve been putting off this post for weeks. 2016 felt like several years in one – but beyond that, it was a year of extremes for me. The highs went to the heavens and in turn, the lows went the depths of the hell. Am I being dramatic? Maybe. But I doubt it.

*Drake voice* Took a break from blogging, now it’s back to that!
Hello and welcome back to the revamped DearSolo Blog! I hope you like the new look and new branding (as courtesy of the amazing Lusanda Buthelezi – book her for your creative design needs!), and to kick off my new posts, I thought I’d start by finally showing you more of the shots from my shoot with Cedric Nzaka!

Beyond the coincidence of this being an all-black outfit and naming this post Genesis, I chose this title because Genesis is the first book in the Bible – i.e. it’s the beginning – and with the 1st of September being a little over two weeks away, it’s almost the start of spring, too.
In this month’s instalment of Solo’s Corner, I managed to steal a few minutes from one of South Africa’s OG fashion bloggers-come-make up artist and entrepreneur, Aqeelah Harron Ally, from the Fashion Breed blog.
