Everyone's sharing photos of themselves at 20 and it's precisely the distraction we needed.

We’ve reached peak isolation.

With far too much time on our hands, and too much technology at our fingertips, we’ve now resorted to sharing throwback photos to a time when none of us had heard of COVID-19.

All over social media, people are digging into their old photo albums and reminiscing on their younger selves to take part in the #MeAt20 challenge, and it’s giving us more joy than we care to admit.

As is the case with most social media challenges, it’s unclear where this trend first originated, but clearly someone, somewhere found a very flattering photo of them at 20 and needed an excuse to share it. We started seeing some celebrities share their own late last week, and over the weekend, a number of local celebrities got on board.

Well here we are again. Another #fbf and return to #themodellingarchives ????. If you’re a first time visitor welcome - this is where I post old modelling pics for us all to have a laugh at and I share some stories while we stroll down memory lane. So where do I begin with these gems????? So much to discuss - the hair, the brows, the lipstick. Ok so these are from 1995 (I’m pretty sure) and I’m 19 or 20 years old. On a whim I wanted to slightly lighten my hair to change my look a bit. SLIGHTLY LIGHTEN. I went to a VERY bad local salon and long story short, the very inept hairdresser who was just meant to streak my hair, ended up leaving the streaking cap on for too long (takes too long to explain what that is for those who don’t know) and ended up rubbing bleach throughout my hair, wrapped my head in plastic and then forgot about me. I think I sat like that close to an hour. My scalp was burnt in so many places and my hair was like straw - as is evidenced in these photos ???? My agency was none too happy and promptly marched me off to a “proper” salon to get it fixed ????????‍♀️
