• #TBT •• Throwback to October 2012, 2 years into my career as a media personality, this was my first photo shoot with @tobbinator, he was kind enough to shoot me at a very reasonable rate as his contribution to my growth as a radio host ❤️ , I didn’t have a stylist or make up artiste , so I bought my dress , pulled some from my closet , installed x styled my curly human hair extensions ( I was still selling hair then ?) , did my makeup , no highlight , contour or baking ?? , got accessories from @accessories4ubydiri , styled my hair and went to Tobi’s studio he was like where’s your MUA and stylist??♀️, I was like I don’t have any and I can’t afford one right now.
I set up my makeup bag in the studio and put my dresses on. I didn’t know how to pose but we were able to come up with this gorgeous image. i recall I even had to go to a shop and buy one more look (will post the image). I’m so proud of myself as this is a reminder that i am hardworking and consistent. it was stressful because I had to do everything myself but I enjoyed doing this because I always know how to put myself together with whatever I have
I’m so thankful for growth and today I’ll give myself a pat at the back fully aware that I’ve always aimed for the best regardless of any situation that life has thrown at me . To anyone reading this , pace yourself , don’t measure your success based off other people , everyone’s journey is different ??, stay true to yourself and be patient
