Things I loved about the 90s

Hey readers,

Remember the 90s… it feels like ages ago! They were ace, didn’t really think much at the time but hindsight is a valuable thing. So, here are some of the things that rocked about the 90s and not just having no responsibility for small humans and doing whatever I felt like. 

Daria was my icon during the 90s. Daria was a cartoon about an American school girl and the focus was on her life at school. She is not popular but different shall we say, she was crippled with low self-esteem and a popular sister. I loved Daria not just for sarcasm which to be fair was tremendously glorious.

MTV channel was the bomb, it was incredible unlike now where it is crap!  Of course, there were some great shows like my darling Daria, who could forget Bevis and Butthead and the amazing and slightly addictive deathmatch. That at the time was what I was hooked on watching, I am not surprised I didn’t have square eyes but hey ho, I am still standing!

Of course, the 90s would not be the 90s if you haven’t played the wonderful Sonic the Hedgehog on the old Sega Mega drive. I miss the carefree days when all you needed to worry about was when it was your turn to have a go and collect the golden coins.

On telly when I was in the 90s there was a brilliant game show called Supermarket sweep and it involved Dale Winton as the host. The contestants had to answer questions to earn time to dash around the supermarket. Then the contestants had to run around and get as many high-value products into their shopping trolley within the time frame given wins.

I am now officially old because I can say this, if you are a youngster then you may not have heard of a thing called a cassette tape. A cassette tape according to Dictionary.com

Also called cassette tapecompact case containing a length of magnetic tape that runs between two small reels: used for recording or playback of audio or video in a tape recorder, cassette deck, video camera, or VCR, and for storage of data by some small computer systems.

You can get music already on the tape but you can also record it. In the 90s I spent a large portion of a Sunday afternoon recording the certain songs I liked whilst listening to Radio 1 top 40. It turned into a mixtape of my favorite hits. I put so much work into making them start and stop within the time, such beautiful concentration was made.

Reflecting back from the 90s I vividly remember glaring into a Where’s Walley book and trying to find this random man dressed in a red and white striped hat and t-shirt lost in a picture full of themes such as on the beach, it provided hours of entertainment for me.

When I was a youth in the 90s the best place to get clobber was from a store called Tammy Girl with such items as a skirt over trousers or peddle pushers.

After you had been shopping at Tammy Girl the place to hit was the pick n mix in Woolworths where there was so much choice it took a good half an hour to make your selections.

Flip out pencil case was my whole life when I was a child at school. It was amazing and the best piece of stationary that I have ever and I mean EVER owned. If you have not been fortunate to experience a flip out pencil case then you are missing out.

  1. Oh god, Tammy Girl was the best! Every Saturday me and my friends would always go in there to try things on knowing we would never actually get them and have a mini fashion show. The sales assistants must of hated us! Ahhh Woolworths and a good ole pick and mix. #BloggerClubUK

  2. My favourite things about the 90’s were that I was married for the second time, had my 3rd son and most of all, I was able bodied, as I suffered a massive stroke in 2007#blogginggoodtime@_karendenbid199@gmail is

  3. Oh this brings back so many memories, I still mourn for Woolworths and buying my 49p singles from the rack. And who didn’t record the top 40 on their cassette player! Just one thing though, during the 90s I was a married mum with two kids!! They are really the kids of the 90s in our house. (Yes they are both still living at home.) xx

  4. Daria! I’d forgotten all about that show! Flip out pencil cases are making a comeback, although according to my eight year old they should be referred to as being ‘epic’ not ‘cool’ as I called them, haha! Thanks for linking up with #Blogstravaganza 🙂

  5. Love this post! Oh, I played for ages on my mega drive and Sonic was one of my favourites! I remember buying all of my tapes from Woolworths and I remember the chore of recording the charts lol. Trying to cut the DJ out in between tracks was insane haha!

    Thanks for the trip down memory lane and for sharing with #MMBC. x

  7. Oooh the 90’s…! For me it was very much about the music (and I made A LOT of tapes too, either mixed ones from the radio etc, or from CDs or LPs borrowed from friends). Nirvana and other grunge bands, local punk bands, the Cure, Blur and all the other Brit Pop and various indie bands… Also MTV as you say, mostly for the music but also Beavis & Butthead. And then there was the whole growing up thing… chasing love, first proper kiss etc… Good times! xx #PoCoLo
