Ah highschool, I'm about 16 here...I went to the tanning beds everyday...horrid I know. I worked out like crazy and I dyed my hair blond. I wore tons of bronzer and barely any other makeup. I was really trying to fit in and failing horribly. Highschool wasn't my greatest moment, I got bullied a lot. Girls would call me horrible names and throw things in the cafeteria.
At 18 I went through a bit of a punk phase. I listened to skater music and pretended to skate...I also took up the bass guitar. My makeup consisted of heavy eyeliner a la Avril Lavigne...and I thought it was cool to wear a bra strap around my neck.
I dyed my hair black when I met my hubby. We moved in together after two weeks he proposed at 6 months, and we were pregnant within the year. I gained a ton of weight in the beginning of my first pregnancy...there came a point where DDD bras were not fitting:( I didn't really care so much for makeup back then, brown and gold eyeshadows and bronzer.
After having my daughter I thought I would try to look more like a mum. I cut my hair once again the angled bob that everyone was doing, and didn't dye it. This is my natural hair color:) I wore pretty simple makeup just eyeliner and blush. I loved my hair this way but my hubby hated it...lol.
And here I am pregnant with my son, thats my mum and my brother in the background. With my son I didn't gain any weight but in my stomach...look at that thing its like a beach ball. My hair was still short and simple, so much easier to do in the mornings. I wore my regular jeans my entire pregnancy but just didn't button the top button...haha.
After my son was born I let my hair grow, I missed long hair. And dyed it dark brown. I just had to add this picture in here. These are 2 of my sisters I have 6, but this is totally our personalties...haha its very hard for me to be serious in a picture.
This summer, I did my first ever 'bikini photoshoot'...at 25 after 2 kids. I was pretty terrified, especially since the lovely model with me is a pro cheerleader/ballerina and 19....:P She is probably one of the most beautiful people I have ever seen in real life. This is pretty close to what I look like today, minus the tan...I am white as a ghost come September. In the 2 years since my son was born my hair has gone from my jaw to near my belly button. I am very lucky it grows so fast.
So there you have it...I wish I had more interesting pictures, but in the last 2 years I haven't changed all that much. I've definitely gotten better with makeup...my eyebrows no longer look like I colored them in with a sharpie and I finally gave up the winged liquid eyeliner. I'd love to see pictures of you guys when you were younger:) XOXO Charis
