LittleEllieMae Christmas Advent...?


Now, I have been extremely rubbish at posting on here lately which I am truly sorry about. School feels like its literally taking over my life and it sucks because I'd much rather be writing blog posts and editing YouTube videos if I'm completely honest but apparently that's not acceptable. 

Anyway, to make up for the lack of blog posts I have come up with a brilliant (if I may say so myself) idea...

Every day of December leading up to Christmas I shall post on my blog. So that's 25 straight days of LittleEllieMae-ness to read! 

It may be a review, a new YouTube video, a lifestyle update, OOTD or just a chatty random post- But I will try my very utmost hardest to post every day leading up to Christmas!

I'm really looking forward to doing this and I hope you are excited too! 

So, starting on Sunday 1st December 2013... LittleEllieMae's Christmas Advent shall begin!

Merry Christmas

Blast From The Past- LittleEllieMae

I have lived through three decades, two centuries and two millenniums, and I'm only 16! I have spent the last two days filing through old photo albums and feeling very nostalgic, so today I'd like to share with you some of my photos from my life so far!

Lets start from the beginning:

I was a blue eyed, blonde haired, chubby baby! Mum took us for these little photo-shoots at places like Mothercare and I think those are my favourite kind of photos from my childhood- so cute (if I say so myself)!

Love this photo! I still have this rocking horse somewhere in our house, I think I will keep it for my children when I'm older; It was my favourite toy! Also, I see The Simpsons on the TV behind me which made me laugh because I used to love watching it when I was younger but now I really don't like it haha!

As you can see, my Mum loved dressing me and my sister, Flora, in the same outfits which is cute I suppose, despite the 2 and a half year age difference, although I'm not sure what she was thinking when she put us in those awful purple satin-y dresses! EW!

I was in love with this dress (and still am if i'm honest!). I clearly remember buying it in Debenhams for a friend's wedding and I wore it at every occasion I could afterwards! I was a very girly pink-obsessed girl... not much change there then!

Pinky pink pink pink! You may have noticed that I used to love jewelry of all sorts, especially those really long beaded necklaces that you can wrap around several times. Oh, and tiaras - I wanted to be a princess. Still do. 

I always give my sister my hand-me-downs, as you can see, she gets landed with some pretty cool stuff (perks of having a cool big sister, eh?). My dress here was from Monsoon and it was one of my favourite dresses I have ever owned... I actually wish that it still fit me now! I feel as though this is around the kind of time I started to really become interested in fashion and how I looked, about 11 years old. 

The start of my pose-y days...

This was my 12th birthday party, soon after I first started high school. My shirt was from H&M- I really like the colours but not 100% sure on the sparkles! Its not so clear from this photo, but I'm wearing bright purple liquid liner on my lids. My Grandma brought me my first piece of 'real' makeup a few months before this photo was taken and it happened to be the Urban Decay purple liquid liner- It wasn't until recently I realised what a great first makeup product I brought back in the day! Good choice 12 year old Ellie!

And that brings me to the present! I'm really happy with how I dress now- I feel confident with my style but I'm still learning and evolving! 

It will be interesting to look back on this in a couple of years to see how I used to dress!

I really enjoyed writing this post, I hope you enjoyed reading it!

Have a nice day!
