What I Miss About The 90s

Anyone who knows me knows that I am still obsessed with the 90s. I just really can’t let them go. I listen to the music pretty much every day, I rewatch old shows and love buying anything 90s related. So I thought, I would put together a list with all the things I miss. I spent the 90s in two different countries, so maybe not everyone will get everything on this list. Man, it actually makes me a bit sad to miss all these things, cause I had a great childhood and love looking back.

  1. Omg this list got me straight into the feels! If there is one thing that I miss it’s my mom buying me a Mizz or Cosmo Girl magazine on the way home from school or over the weekend and I would spend ages in my room flicking through it and marking the fashion pages of the pieces I wanted to buy.
