My life in pictures

I’ve been going through my computer backing up files in case I have to take it to a repair shop. I stumbled across a load of old pictures on my portable hard-drive and thought you guys might find them amusing.

Here’s a time line of me over the last 10 years:

This was my 12th birthday:

Age 13 on a school trip to Germany:

Then when I was 14, I finally persuaded my mum to let me get rid of the dreadful fringe.
Here I am at the local under 18’s rock club, with that awkward ‘I’m growing out my hair’ thing going on. 

At 15 I started doing silly things with my make-up, just look at the baby-bat doodles:

This is one of only 2 times in my life that I wore black lipstick. It really doesn’t suit me!

I started to play bass. I was in a band with my best-friend Pip. We 'broke-up' because we couldn't find a guitarist!

I also got my first boyfriend. I’m really just posting this ‘cause I miss my trench-coat. Also the height difference still amuses me!

Here is me on my 16th birthday, I look surprisingly cheerful considering I was suffering my first really bad hangover.

did a lot of drinking at 16…I’m still remembered as ‘Martini Girl’ by my friend's mum because I drank all all her Martini at new year, as can be seen in this picture. The guy with me is the boyfriend I gave the trench-coat to; he’d been wearing it for 3 months and stretched the shoulders so much it didn't fit me any more!

This is me at Prom with the only other ‘Goth’ in my girl’s school of over 2000 pupils.

Age 17:

This was my halloween costume =]

This was the first outing of my top hat:

Age 18:

First glass of absinthe.

Salsa night in fresher's week:

Age 19:
I'd just made that chocker =] I still wear it but I've had to glue the cameo back on 4 times =P

Age 20:

This picture was actually taken at Ann Summer's night at our local rock club about 10 minutes before I met Ash (the lovely boyfriend).


This is what I wore to Ash sister’s wedding. See, I didn’t wear ALL black =P Dark blue is a summer colour, right?

Graduation day with the other people from my course:

And finally a recent picture taken by my Dad in the woods:.

I hope you enjoyed this little trip down my memory lane!


  1. So nice to see pictures of you from the girl age to grown up.

  2. Awww, it's really cool to see the difference with every year and it seems like you were an adorable baby bat. I had similar eyeliner accidents when I was about 14 =D

  3. It's interesting to see another person's progression from childhood to adult. I bet those pictures brought back a lot of memories. Thanks for sharing with us =)

  4. Oh I love this. Ickle You was adorable!! G x
