She wrote: 'Say hello to my 12 year old self.
Strike a pose: She also comments on her 'citrus/copper coloured highlights, writing: 'Thanks Sun-in'
'I encourage you to admire my citrus/copper colored highlights (thanks Sun-in!) my braces, and my ever present sunburn.'
She goes on: 'And yeah I'm brushing my eyebrows with a toothbrush in that one picture.'
