#ThrowbackThursday: A Little Me & My First Lipstick!

Hi My Loves!!

It's that time again for my favorite blog post..... #ThrowbackThursday :) I just LOVE doing these. It gives me the opportunity to look at my old photo albums and share little bits of my past with you. We are going all the way back to my childhood today. I haven't looked at these pictures in so long, so it was nice to go through them all.

Here's me when I was maybe 3 or 4? I look like I'm around Phoenix's age. This was in England. I like the fact that I have food on my shirt, makes me feel like I'm not the only one who has children with food on their shirts haha! Don't I look like Phoenix here?

I love this picture of me. I look so sweet and happy. I love that dressing gown my Mom is wearing. She used to wear it all the time. I wish I still had it. My hair is so golden in this picture. So pretty :)

I used to love clip on earrings. This was in England as well. I think it was at my Nanny's house (Grandma). How cute are my brother and sister? I love her bangs, she's like a little doll. Her eyes were so big when she was little ;)

This was the first time I wore lipstick. We were at my Nanny's house and my cousin and I thought we were really grown up with our lipstick on. I wasn't sure how to smile with it on haha! Look how cute BS is puckering up her lips :) I love this picture of all of us with out cousins. I miss them so much, they live in England.

Here's my Great Grandma. Her name was Little Nanny because she was so tiny. She was quite old here and didn't have the best memory in the world. She was very sweet. I like her wallpaper :) My Mom used to wear those huge glasses, she couldn't see without them. That was my favorite coat. I loved it, I used to wear it all the time. How beautiful is my Mom's skin? I don't know what happened to me to get such crap skin. I wish I had hers but I think I got my Dad's side of the family's instead :(

Here's my little ID card for school when we lived in Tahoe. I was in 5th grade here. I think it's cool to know how much I weighed back then haha! 77 pounds! I used to wear that vest a lot. I liked wearing headbands too :)

This was in 7th grade. That's my natural hair color although I'm sure it's more ashy now. My mom curled my hair for me and I remember not wanting to wash it because then it wouldn't look as pretty. 

Last but not least.... my Mommy :) Isn't she beautiful? Her skin was olive and so perfect. My sister takes after her in that department. Her hair was so thick and healthy just like my sister too. Today was tough looking at pictures of her. Some days are easier than others when you've lost a parent or any loved one. Sometimes I can look at her and smile and then sometimes (like today) it makes me want to cry. I get sad that she's gone and wish I could just hug her. It's tough but I know I'm not alone with these feelings. I'm just feeling kinda down today so I wish I could just call her. She always knew how to make me feel better. She was my best friend and I miss her very much. She got dolled up when she threw parties for our friends. I used to sit in the bathroom with her and watch her do her hair and makeup and pick out her jewelry. Appreciate and take advantage of the time you have with your Mom's. You will miss them when they are gone. I do everyday.

 Hope you enjoyed my #ThrowbackThursday this week. I'll see you in my video tomorrow! Hope you liked my latest video with my brother too!



  1. Such great photos and you totally resemble Phoenix in the first few pictures, could never really tell who he looked most like in the vlogs, but from those pics it's obvious
    Great Post

  2. When I saw that first pic I saw Lily :) love th his #tbt ♥

  3. Wow the first picture is such a resemblance of Phoenix but then the second one I saw Lily

  4. ahahahha awww.. All the pics of you three as kids!!!!! so cute! BS is so freaking adorable! I like the Brad is in the lipstick picture!

  5. Great #tbt. I feel the same way with my dad. He died when I was 15 and I miss him terribly. Some days are worse than others.

  6. I love your Throwback Thursdays :) With your skin, look into eating less (processed) carbs and maybe dairy. I had two dermatologists tell me to cut down on carbs and only allow fruit and vegetables and maybe brown rice to be my only carbs (it's pretty difficult, though I found oats really don't affect my skin, it has something to do with what kind of carb it was). It worked for the longest time until I stopped doing that, haha. I was able to wear whatever makeup I wanted while I did that "diet", but it is hard when everyone around you isn't eating the same. I'm the only one in my family to have really bad acne and really bad acne scars (lots of boxcar, icepick and other indented scars). In the past I went on accutane, but it didn't work and that's when I had to start cleaning up my diet -_-

  7. hugs to you Sam. Your mom was very beautiful, and I see alot of her in you and in BS! I watched your video this morning (I usually watch my youtube videos while i"m getting ready in the morning on my ipad). Anyway, your brother is a hunk! And I thought it was very sweet how he was trying to do a nice job on your makeup. :)

  8. Beautiful mom. My heart goes out to you. I feel the same way when I see photos of my mom. Some days I'm fine and then others it hurts my heart so much to not have her here anymore. So wonderful that you had her in your life and will extend her legacy to your own children. Hugs.

  9. I cried too! I cried for me and for you...although my mom is elderly, I have her. Having a new baby makes it hard sometimes, but I make it a point to spend time with her. Thank you for sharing your heart with us. I hope that as the week goes on, you begin to feel a tad better and that all of those great memories you have of your mom warm your heart and put that smile on your face that's so infectious.

  10. Great blog post Sam. But this sentence "Appreciate and take advantage of the time you have with your Mom's. You will miss them when they are gone. I do everyday." made me cry. Both of my parents are alive and I can't imagine how tough it is.
    Love your family.

  11. Such great photos, thanks for sharing them with us.

  12. I so loved these pictures you chose to share with us! Phoenix does favor you so much and you favor your mom so much! I agree with your statement enjoy the time with your parents because you will miss them when they are gone. I mis my mom everyday and still catch myself picking up phone and trying to call her! Now I am going to cry. I so love watching your family everyday! Hope you feel better today!


  13. I love your TBT. I'm so sorry about your mom, Sam. I know it's not easy. I lost my dad when I was only 9 and I miss him a lot. I just wish I could hug you! I was tearing up reading about your mom. She was very beautiful. She would be very proud of the woman you have become. I hope you are feeling better today. Love from GA, Melissa

  14. You are so right Sam, enjoy every moment with loved ones because they can be gone in a heartbeat. My heart goes out to you, and I send you virtual hugs because I know exactly how you feel, I lost my Mom in 2005 and my Dad two years later in 2007. It was very hard, and still is, of course some days are harder than others, but I felt compelled to say thank you for sharing this with us and being so open and big hearted! You are an awesome lady! Lots of love to you! :) xo! <3
