I was born in the 80’s but raised in 90’s! 1990, when I turned 7 to 1999 when I turned 16, were some of the best years! I experienced elementary, middle and high school during those times. It was before I had kids and I was carefree to do as I pleased…within reason. I mean lets face it, I was still a child so I still had to abide my parent rules, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t try to get away with murder. 🙂
I remember getting on the bus and going to the mall to hang out with friends at the food court…that was the thing to do on Friday and Saturday nights. Might I add, I had no money but it was fun! The world was less complicated at that time; or at least it felt that way. The 90’s was the decade that pagers, portable cd players and cell phone gain massive popularity and Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Friends played on every TV. Ahhhhh, if I could rewind the hands of time!
Today I have the May Polish Pickup which features polishes themed around the… 90’s! As you take this trip down memory lane, what were some of you best memories? Let me know in the comments!
