This is …show off time

A hard topic this week, contrary to my usual boofy behaviour, I’m not actually good at geniuinely showing off…you know, self esteem issues and all that. But for this week, I’ll show off an old picture of me taken when I was at uni, that my friend Jana took, that is half decent. I hate having my photo taken, and usually find the results cringeworthy. But this is one of a whole B&W roll of film of pics of me, I’ve lost most of the others, and I keep it as proof that I was young and sorta good looking once upon a time. Ahahhaha.

Thanks for this week’s topic Katie!

    It is a great photo. I love those rare shots where you are actually pleased with how you look.

    I can’t believe how curly your hair is.

    It’s a great photo Steph.

    I absolutely love black and white photos… This photo looks like you were very relaxed and the wind blowing your hair…Its hard to find the photos you like as you get older…

    Thats lovely, you need to get someone to recreate it! Only odd people like photos of themselves. I ALWAYS have my mouth open which was cute when I was younger now it makes me look simple!

    This so still looks like you! Black and white is always fantastic. I lost you temporarily when you switched blogs, I am tuned back in now

    I think getting a friend to take a roll of B&W shots of you should be a mandatory experience between 20 and 30. I had the same experience, and if nothing else you can look back and realise that even if you’re not a professional model, you have the beauty of youth on your side!

    Mind you, you look like you actually have beauty on your side :)
