Then and Now Tag!?

I want to grow. I want to be better. You Grow. We all grow. We’re made to grow.You either evolve or you disappear. –Tupac Shakur.

Hello and welcome back to my blog. You guys have been really amazing, the love on my last post was awesome ?? I love you all❤️. Guess what??? I took Abacha(African salad) yesterday??, you will understand if you read this. Over to the post, I watched a Then and Now Tag on YouTube by the Brownie Diaries and I decided to try it out.?

A little intro… This tag is basically about the way you saw and judged things in the past and the way you see them now. You will be surprised at the amount of change. I tag everyone reading this post.❤️ So sit back, pick up your bowl of popcorn and chocolates and enjoy??.


THEN: I had big babies for my size and I was ashamed of them, like I always wore large clothes to cover them up. It was really bad, I can remember telling my mum that I wanted to reduce them?

Now: I’m definitely proud of them, for always making mama proud?? if you stare, we stare back?


THEN: haaahhaaa??? I can remember back in secondary school (ss3), when I started making up, I was competing with clowns??. My eyeshadow collab was always bright and shiny, as in brighter than diamonds and my brows… story for another day.??

Now: hmmm, a girl is calm. I’m into neutral colors and I still love my red lipsticks❤️


Then and Now: I have never been a fan of clubs. And I really really really do not understand the whole concept of grinding, if you want to dance, dance in peace?


THEN: I basically wanted to be a nun, like I wasn’t necessarily a fan of marriage. I used to be like, how will I keep on waking up to one face everyday??

NOW: I feel like I understand the concept of marriage now, and I definitely want a family?‍?‍?‍?


THEN: I was a planner, at 10 I already made plans to have a job and my own enterprise by 20. Lol?

NOW: I still plan but then my plans for the future are more realistic and strategic.??


THEN: Father Lord!!!!! I was a drama queen ?? my whole life revolved around drama and I was always the gossip topic? funny enough, I enjoyed every bit of it??

NOW: the revolution is epic!!! I race away from drama. Like my life is so zero tolerance for drama.❤️ 

The End!!!

You want more right?? Don’t worry, next time??

What are your then and Now views? Do you still see things the same way? Do you still makeup same way and all??

Thanks for your time, hope the bowl of popcorn is empty??

  4. Interesting post! You’ve inspired me to make one of my own in the future. I couldn’t help but notice that you have ‘upcoming lawyer’ in your bio, please ohh take me under your wings so I can survive this law course! I like the blog and what I’ve seen so far. I also disliked many of the things you used to dislike, but I can’t relate to the boobs because I never had any lmaooooo
