2010-2020 – You’ve been one heck of a decade. I did the majority of my growing up in the last 10 years, moved away to uni, lost loved ones, met new people and started my career. I felt a little roundup, or trip down memory lane was in order. Although sifting through about 100,000 photos from the last ten years was quality entertainment, I’ve managed to narrow it down. There are a lot of things I haven’t shared as it’s been a jam packed few years but anyway heres to the good, the bad and the ugly from the last decade.
Four months into 2010 I became a ‘teenager’. Yes, believe it or not teenagers of today – this is what we looked like back in days before perfect brows, Morphe palettes and YouTube tutorials. Although I was rocking the hair clip trend from day one.
2010: Waved my best friend off to the other side of the world. What a way to start the decade, spoiler alert – we see each other four more times over the next ten years.
2011: Lived my best carefree life at school with a wonderful group of friends. This photo was the best of a band bunch. I could have embarrassed us all and posted one a lotttt worse. Luckily by 2011 we all managed to ditch the ginormous fringes and all opted for a swoop to the side with a Primark hair clip – classy!
