Hi friends!  Hope you are enjoying your weekend so far!  Things have been a little busy around here with a recent promotion to be a manager at work (yay!) and prepping for a Ladies Night fair where I’m going to have my first in-person booth at the end of the month!  All that and a whole bunch of travel planned (business and fun) about every other week for the next few months (eeks)!

Anywho, I just wanted to stop in today and take part in Yellow Songbird’s GENIUS new idea of Saturday Snapshot.  Basically every Saturday you share a fun picture of yourself or a picture you’ve taken, old or new, with a little description of it for the blog world to see!  Personally, I love seeing old photos of people from when they were younger!  And then link up your post on her blog and check out everyone else’s awesome photos!  Fun, right?  Absolutely!  So here we go….

Where: Taipei, Taiwan
When: 13 years old
What: Glamour Shots

As a young teenage girl, it was totally the thing to do.  I was over in Taiwan for vacation, so I thought why not?  Getting your hair and makeup did, playing dress up with multiple outfits from casual to fancy, pretty much feeling like a princess for a full day, yes please!

A few things to note about this particular picture…

– I’m wearing short short jean shorts
– That tank top is pretty much see through lace on the bottom half (see I was still obsessed with lace back then too)
– I probably had 40 mosquito bites up and down my legs that were photoshopped out
– Don’t ask me why I’m holding a white stuffed animal bear…
– I have bangs again right now like I did when I was 13, HA!
– And the white decorative accent in my hair?  That’s torn up strips of toilet paper.  HOT.  Ashley suggested I start selling toilet paper hair accessories in my etsy shop, now there’s a money maker.  😉

There ya have it.

Now head over to Yellow Songbird to link up your own photo and check out some other Saturday Snapshots!

  2. March 12, 2011 / 12:14 am

    Hilarious and adorable picture! When I went to Taiwan as a kid, I’d have a million bites too!

  3. March 12, 2011 / 12:27 am

    How cute is that pic?! haha.. I love the torn up pieces of tissue in your hair. That is funny!

  4. March 12, 2011 / 12:35 am

    What a cute link party idea! I love your commentary and those tissue paper strips are most definitely HOT! 🙂

  5. March 12, 2011 / 1:57 am

    Such a cute picture! Aren’t we glad that we “grew” out of those phases. 😉

  6. March 12, 2011 / 3:09 am

    Hahaha I LOVE this picture! And the idea is awesome *goes digging for old pictures*

  7. March 12, 2011 / 7:14 am

    Ha, my early teen pictures are not nearly as adorable…I wish they were. 🙂 p.s. Are there any good (fairly inexpensive) restaurants near the Marriott in Kansas City? (Like within walking distance?) Our hotel in Santa Clara for the conference last year was in the middle of nowhere, and we ended up eating at the extremely expensive hotel bar every night…

  8. March 12, 2011 / 7:30 am

    Oh my gosh that pic is AWESOME.

  9. March 12, 2011 / 7:46 am

    CONGRATS on your promotion – woooooo hooooooo! You were super adorable when you were 13 too. Things haven’t changed much! 🙂

  10. March 12, 2011 / 7:49 am

    Love! Still adorable back then. My first thought was – Is that toilet paper in her hair? Haha. Funny how what we think is cool at 13 doesn’t quite translate to now. 🙂 So fun to look back!

  11. March 12, 2011 / 8:29 am

    this has to be my fave Saturday Snapshot EVAH. too funny.

  12. March 12, 2011 / 9:52 am

  13. March 12, 2011 / 10:00 am

  14. March 12, 2011 / 10:07 am

    This is SO great! I always wanted to do “glamour” photo shoots way back when. I never got to, so when it was time to have my senior photos taken, I took up A LOT of time, hahah (now I know what I’m posting next week!)

  15. March 12, 2011 / 11:06 am

  25. March 12, 2011 / 6:41 pm

    I, too, got Glamour Shots, though at age 9 & in the States. I look ABSURD. I loved them at the time, though.

  26. March 12, 2011 / 7:27 pm

    Let just say I have a picture very similar to this and you all will probably NEVER see it. ;p

    HAHHAHA OMG, I totally did glamour shots in Taiwan when I was 15! They are HIDEOUS, with the fake looking hairpieces, the makeup that made me super pale (I was actually tan that summer) and didn’t even look like me!

  29. March 13, 2011 / 3:11 am
