This Is Thirty

Today I enter my fourth decade on this planet.  What a thought.  I bet my parents feel old. 

For new readers, each year on my birthday I take a photo of my face, sans any makeup and post it, right here.  Just cleansed, toned and moisturised.  Ever so slightly conceited?  Maybe, but meh, who cares?  It’s not often I post photos of myself on the blog at all – usually I am the one behind the camera, or it’s photos of food.  So here you go, me, at thirty, standing in my bathroom.  Please excuse the resting bitch face. 

And incase you are interested, here are the previous year’s photos.

Twenty Nine, Twenty Eight, Twenty SevenTwenty Six
