I'm game.

Suzy invited us all to copy her, so I am. Rules:
1. Post your first ever Facebook profile picture.
2. Pick one photo (only one) from each consecutive year up to the present one.
3. Explain.
2008
I guess this photo was taken during my transition from MySpace and Bebo to Facebook in 2008, as it appears on all three profiles. It was taken on the front step of my parents' house, and that's our family cat Lucky. We found out just last week he has glaucoma in his left eye so it's being removed.

2009
That's my first cat, Vodie, who was run over later that year and is now tattooed on my thigh. We lived in a little studio apartment in Mt Victoria, and I had just reunited with Charlie... I guess we were "dating". Also, those terribly hipsteresque glasses do have prescription lenses, I swear (I usually wear contacts).

2010
This was taken during some occasion which was celebrated at Coyote with friends - I can't remember what though. Duckfacing was all the rage, I guess. This would have been shortly after Charlie and I moved into our apartment together.

2011
Not-so-subtly showing off my tattoo by Simon Morse, which is still not finished (my bad). Glasses make a reappearance. This was taken in the lounge of our previous flat.

2012
This is my current profile picture, that I posted the day after I dyed my hair back to brown, and was taken in the lounge of our current place that I adore. And I'm wearing lipstick for one of the first times in my entire life.

I might do a few more retrospective photo posts in the future, they're fun.

I love these posts! And I think you should wear lipstick more often. It suits you. I just had to go do one of these posts after seeing yours. x
