The 90’s has got to be my favourite era ever it’s where I did most of my growing up and it led me towards adulthood. It was the era of the spice girls, Oasis , Fresh Prince of Bel-air , Nokia 3210’s and so much more.
I lived my best life in the 90’s for so many reasons , I made solid friendships and still have those friendships to this day. Life was much simpler back then there was no technology , mobile phones etc. To us a good time was hanging out in someones house or garage listening to Take That , Spice girls or Oasis on our ghetto blaster or the top 40 we had taped on to cassette the previous Sunday.
The fashion was so much better and I am loving that a lot of it is making a comeback. Standard dress back in 1994 was a baggy tie dye t shirt and baggy jeans. My friends and I also went through the Kappa and Adidas popper shiny jogging bottom phase ! My ying and yang necklace on a black rope that I bought abroad was one of my most treasured possessions and the stack of homemade friendship bracelets my friends and I had given each other.
The food was so much better ! We used to have the best snacks like monster munch in ice cream flavor or the ones that turned your tongue blue ! I will also never forget the walkers crisps with the spice girls on the packet and the chance to win actual money with your bag of crisps , we were all on the lookout for the blue packets inside. The days of Turkey Twizzlers and chips at school !
Saturday nights at home with the family would be the highlight of our week ! We would have a takeaway from the chippy and watch all of our favourites on TV. Including blind date , noels house party , gladiators , bullseye- we used to watch these religiously and belly laugh at Mr Blobby every time.
90’s movies were also the best ! They really do not make them like that anymore. A few of my faves were Home Alone , Mrs Doubtfire , Dennis the Menace , Hook – I have now introduced all of these to our little ones and they love them. 90’s Disney was also incredible with movies like Toy story , Aladdin and The Lion King.
For all of these reasons I will always be obsessed with 90’s nostalgia ! If I see something remotely 90’s whether it be fashion related or memorabilia I just have to get it.
