Look, I know, girls love Beyoncé… The opening line to Drake’s song has never rung truer in the past few weeks. I mean, with the release of not only the album, but the visual album of Lemonade jeopardising all progress I made with my hairline, now was not the time to mess with the Beyhive. But beyond fanatic stan-ism, there was a reason the Hive – and predominantly black women – would not let anyone come for Beyoncé: because she did not make it for you. She made it for us.
Hello friends and welcome to Solo’s Corner! Solo’s Corner is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, and basically, it’s a monthly instalment of interviews with creatives and bloggers from around the country where I just get to know them a little more. The questions range from fashion to music to truth or dare – mostly because I wanted to bring a more personable approach to some of our faves on the internet. First off is the interview I did with the amazing Kenny Jules Morifi-Winslow, the face and brains behind IIIrd Citizen.
as my last post for 2014, i thought a quick reflection would be apt. this year, this blog has given me many opportunities and i’ve also had some incredible moments outside of it, too. i graduated high school, i went to an amazing matric dance, i got my drivers license – all of these moments and more have made this year worthwhile.
seeing as matric prelims are well underway, it is very unsurprising to find that the internet is very appealing right now. so, while i was procrastinating studying – which i stupidly do at my computer – i came across some cool things on the internet and i wanted to share them with you:
seeing as award season is over, the met gala is like the last reprisal for fashionistas and fashion junkies everywhere. and it never disappoints (and even when people’s outfits disappoints, its merely fuel for the blogosphere’s fire, so, like, everyone wins). the inner 13 year old blogger in me would be happy because i’m blogging red carpets again. lol. so without further adieu, here are my best/worst dressed and those i can forgive, otherwise known as the yays, the nays, and the ‘i love you so you can do whatever you want’s.
