2010–2012: Through My EyesEdit

Shortly after the announcement of Marlina's hiatus, Tomötimosen revealed that she had a solo album in the works and that her debut solo single would be released soon. The lead single, "Around the World", was released in September 2010. The song was primarily Lashpop, but saw a strong influence from 80s pop. It was a massive success, reaching the top ten in six countries.

Her debut studio album, Through My Eyes, was later released in December 2010. The album was a large success, peaking at number-one in Lashardia, Adoriam, Sodrax, Pesa, and Zakharia. The album was eclectic in style, while primarily Lashpop, it also had songs inspired by 80s pop, electropop, Lashardian hip hop, chill-out music, and R&B. It also produced the hit singles "Leave Me Alone", "Love at First Sight", and "I'll Never Get Over You".

2012–2014: 5 StarsEdit

After the success experienced by her first album, Tomötimosen began work on her second solo studio album. In a 2012 interview, she stated "I can't wait until Marlina gets back together, but during our hiatus my solo career is the number-one priority. With the new album, things are definitely sounding more pop, but we still have more songs to record and I've always been a fan of surprises".

She released the lead single to her upcoming album, "5 Stars", in January 2013. The song was a huge success, achieving similar feats as her previous releases. The album of the same name was later released in autumn 2013. It also contained the hit singles "I Do" and "I Want You (To Leave)". After Marlina reformed, she announced that she'd be going on a hiatus as a solo artist.

Personal lifeEdit

In 2007, Tomötimosen married Pesan footballer Ash Yalchi. She later filed for divorce in 2009, citing irreconcilable differences. In a 2014 interview, she stated that she suffered extreme domestic abuse at the hands of Yalchi, being sent to the hospital by him in one instance, and that it was the other members of Marlina that persuaded her to file for divorce.

In December 2012, she married Rentuscan lawyer Hivor Lelupo. They have two children together, Ina, born in February 2014, and Adam, born in January 2016. The family resides in the Breż district of Ubenmoor for most of the year, but also owns property in Cavarda, Rentusca where they spend their summers.
