The Gallery

This week’s Gallery theme is ‘Youth’ and whilst looking through some old photos, I found this one of my Mum. I’m pretty sure this is before she had me, I’d guess she was about eighteen here but I just think she looks awesome. I love her outfit, it’s something that I could totally see a girl of that age wearing today; who’d have thought I was related to a timeless style icon?!

And just in case you’re straining your eyes to read the back of that bloke’s cut, yes, it does say Hell’s Angels. My mother had a pretty colourful youth, so it seems totally appropriate to use this photo here! She actually looks a bit pissed off in the photo, but maybe that’s just her trying to look tough next to all those hairy bikers? (I’m fully lol-ing as my little mum is only 5’2″!).

The Gallery – The 80’s

I’ve not joined in with The Gallery for ages, mostly because I’m so rubbish at blogging that I only find out the theme once the linky is almost closed, but as a child of the Eighties, I felt it was my duty to show you some photos and generally give myself the chance to show off just how damn CUTE I was as a child. So here goes…

Me, looking cute in a bouncy chair:

Me, looking cute (but grainy) sitting in a cardboard box with a dog…(yeah, I don’t know either…):

Me again, pulling some fairly obnoxious faces in a photo booth, but still looking cute:

And finally, the pièce de résistance – The cutest photo EVER TAKEN of me:

(I’m even in a caravan – how 80’s is that?!)

If you want to see some fabulously 80’s-tastic hair and fashion, head over to Sticky Fingers where everyone else has linked up.
