Cringing At Old Embarrassing Photos | Zoella


*sneezes* Hello, everybody! I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend. For today’s video, I thought I would just embarrass myself, really, and do another video where I look back over old photos. I did this last year, and lots of you really enjoyed it. So I thought I would do it again. I’m crazy. So, I have my laptop here, which is so grubby. Oh well. And I have… all my external hard drives with the majority of my really old photos saved on them. I’m a really sentimental person, so I keep everything. Whether that’s a really awkward, cringey phase of my life, I still think it’s important to treasure those memories. So you can see… the different stages of your life, and where you’ve come, and you can embrace it. It might not have been a time that you enjoyed, but I think it’s important to look back on it, and embrace it for what it was. Which is why I have… every photo I’ve ever taken. And actually, I’m quite glad I do that. Because, it makes for some great conversation, and some funny videos. So, yeah, that is what we’re doing today. Right. Let’s have a look at this. Oh God! Okay, so these are kind of more… my blog… pictures. I mean, look at this one. Does anyone remember this picture? This is, like, I look so, kind of, gothic-slash-emo here. I think I did a smokey eye. And actually, I used to set my camera up on a tripod against my dining room wall, with a softbox. And this was what happened. My hair’s so dark! Gah, that’s a really old picture of me and Joe. That’s from Christmas 2012, I think. What was that necklace all about, though? I’m serious. Like, what is that? I used to wear that in so many of my videos. I loved that necklace so much. Oh, my God. Who remembers this photo? I feel like this is… This is, like, everywhere, this picture. Look at my hair! My hair’s so long, and, like, straggly. Oh, my God! This was the first… time me and Louise ever met Alfie and Marcus. Oh, cute! That was in their hotel room, before an event. That’s so cute. Look at this picture. My hair is so thick and dark! Oh, no. This photo is awful. Ugh, this is another photo shoot. I feel like I used one of these for something. Oh, it was this one. Yeah, I used that for something. I feel like that gets used everywhere, too. Let me see if there’s any really cringe ones. Oh, my God. Look at this one. *laughs* With the arm in shot, it’s, like, so MySpace. That’s the original picture. Ah! Oh, my God. Look how different it looks unedited. I remember this day. This was… I think this was a London Fashion Week Rimmel thing. And I was so nervous. This was one of the days I went to London on my own. I remember it so well. Obviously, I had to get in a cheeky little photo shoot before I went. Oh, I actually got my dad to take these pictures. Okay. I feel like we need to take it back… a bit more old-school. So… Uh… These have got my ex-boyfriend in them. That is disgusting. Oh… no. This is old. This one is really old. Okay. This was, like, one of my first edited pictures. I loved this photo. My friend Jenny took this picture in her bedroom, and I used to… use a editing software that allowed you to up the contrast and pick a colour. So I think I edited this in every colour. I did a bit of an Andy Warhol. Oh look! Here I am, plucking my eyebrows! Probably over-plucking them. But also, look at my white hoops. And my hairband. Oh, God. Look at me. Look at my friend’s room. I love this. Wait, so how old was I here? I was fourteen in these pictures. I’m wearing a… Oh, my God, what is the brand of that hoodie? Is it Gold Digger? I can’t remember, but I’m wearing that. She’s got Orlando Bloom on her wall. These were the days when you would hang out with your friends, and, using, like, your parents’ digital camera, you would have, like, a little bit of a photo shoot, and then you would, like, save them as your MSN picture or put them on your Facebook profile. I actually hate this picture, so much. This is one that never got edited. But look at my face. I look so unimpressed. I look… really angry. What’s this one? Oh, God. I remember that top. It had, like, a comic strip on it, and I loved it. I think I got it from T.K. Maxx. I feel like this isn’t too dissimilar to me, this picture. I feel like I still make that face a lot. But also, my eyebrows. Where are my eyebrows? Also, I’m dead behind the eyes in this. Oh… my… God! Can we take a moment? My little boobs! And, like, my muppet pyjamas. I must’ve been like, “This will be a great picture.” Oh, my God. And also I think I used to cut my own hair there. In fact, I think it’s pretty obvious I used to cut my own hair. What is that? What is that? Why? Why? Oh, dear. It’s a good job that that never went anywhere. Until today! I’ve got a whole album called “Boys.” And I’ve saved pictures of all the boys… like, who I used to talk to in my school, or who were friends with me in school, or who I fancied on MSN. And they’re all in there. Look at this one. Oh, my God. Look at that picture. That is, like, the best thing I’ve ever seen. I need to tell you the funniest story. I’m not gonna show you the picture, because I don’t think my friend would appreciate it. But we posed with our t-shirts up and our bras on, and my bra was too small, and you could see, like, the top of my nipples in the picture. But because it was so funny, and I wanted to send it to my friend to be like, “Oh, my God, this is such a funny picture!” We never put it anywhere. Um, I had to draw… over the bra, in Paint to cover my nipple. I don’t know what this picture is. However, I think we were trying to make it look like I was driving a car. that was part of my seat. It was a heart seat, it was a heart on the back and then it had a circle on the bottom. Did anyone else have those chairs? Cos’ I feel like everyone had those chairs. And there’s my white hoops again. I loved those white hoops. This picture is called like my beehive question mark Do you? It’s not really a beehive Zoe. Oh.my.god. Why? I’m actually like cringing inside at this picture. It’s called posing hee hee And I’m legit doing this. uuggghhh what are you doing with your life?! These must be the most embarrassing pictures of me that have ever existed and I’m choosing to share them with you. But what is this? This is called like my knickers? Guys, I didn’t actually post these anywhere But, what was I thinking? Like, why was fourteen year old Zoe Oh. Get your train driver’s hat out. Love it. Why was fourteen year old Zoe posing like that? I have to also say my friend is also posing like this. Emma, I’m not going to embarrass you, but one day we have to sit down and go through these pictures. Because, they are genius. Oh my god, I remember this photo. I’m gonna crop Emma out but I actually remember this photo. And I remember thinking “I think l look great in this.” I had just been on holiday, I had a tan. I’ve got yellow hoops on this time. A little side pony, and a little bit of a sweat patch on my bra. One of my ex-boyfriends made this. He’s put, “Zoe’s secrets to long distance relationships”, “Zoe Sugg reveals all about her new boyfriend”, “Zoe’s top 10 tips to look as face meltingly fine as her. How does she get her teeth so white?” It’s Cosmopolitan! Can we just take a moment? That’s so funny! Because, I’ve actually been on the cover of cosmo now. I wonder if he saw that? These pictures are so funny This album is called “Fred’s Rave” Why was I going to raves at fifteen? Clearly it wasn’t a rave. Oh my god, I actually remember this night. I remember it so clearly. This was another party. I’m not sure what me and my friend are doing in that picture but Havin’ a great time! oooohhhh a lil’ bit of *singing* Sepia tone lovin’ *stops singing* in this picture Bloody love Jack Johnson I’ve found an album called “Me webcam” oh Oh hell nah This one’s called “I love apple juice” This picture’s called “Sparkle Bitch” I don’t know why, it just is. The hell is that? *Cringes and regrets everything* I just have no words for this picture. I don’t know why I’m caressing a doll. It’s kinda creepy. *sings* here comes trouble With my little bleach highlights that I was so obsessed with, that looked terrible. Look this is what my teeth looked like before I had braces. Let’s end on this one, because this one is totally normal This is me with my stripey off the shoulder t-shirt, my pink leg warmers, my red spotty pumps, and all the beads I owned. Oh and hoops and hair accessories. Basically every accessory I ever owned I’m wearing in this picture And I’m actually posing in this photo in my village Inside, I don’t know the proper word for it but it’s where they used to throw people when they were drunk *It’s called the drunk tank Zoe* In the olden days. Like really, really olden days, and that’s where I am in this picture. On the bed that people would sleep on. There are hundreds of these photos, so I feel like maybe every year I should kind of delve in and see if I can find anymore for your entertainment. But, I actually really enjoy looking back over them, because they’re so funny. And I remember 90% of those photos being taken. And that’s just insane. Honestly, I think you guys need to get involved with this and I think you need to tweet me some embarrassing teenage photos. I would absolutely love that, and it would definitely make me feel slightly better. Make sure you tweet me, my twitter is @zoella you could also tag me on instagram if you want to post that on your instagram. And again that’s @zoella. But I really hope you guys enjoyed this video, give it a thumbs up if you did and i will see you again very soon. Bye!

    I have so many pictures like these, loved a shop load of beads around my neck πŸ˜‚ haha. Really sad that a lot of my photos are on an old laptop that died although I do have some cracking ones saved from MySpace πŸ™ˆ. Loved a downward angle and editing the pictures on picnik with all sorts of strange contrasts and vague lyrics pasted across them… hahaha!
