Two years ago I found an unprocessed film in a camera. These are the beautiful 1990’s photos that were printed for our wonderment.
I originally wrote this post two years ago but never published it. After going through the millions of posts I’ve written and left (many, many, are drunk ramblings) this one pulled my heart strings.
I’m guessing they are 19 years old, so I was 7 at the time, and wow, old fashioned or what?! I’m going through a phase of being reminiscent of my childhood – I have a Play Mobil advent calendar for Christmas this year – so it gives me all the right feelings I’m embodying right now.
You know when you look at old photos of your parents and you laugh at them for their big hair and out of fashion clothes? This is the number one reason I still make photo albums, so I can laugh at myself one day, but turns out ‘one day’ isn’t in my 40’s. ‘One day’ is only a few years down the line.
There’s things that are long gone, like my rabbit Milo, unfortunately. Or the house we lived in.
But then there are things that are timeless or making a come back. Like that pout I’m making in the first photo, and I hate to say I did that for a fair few years after – but not now! I’m also sure that was the era of the choker and crop tops.
There are also things my family still own. I have the same bauble on the Christmas tree, bought from my Nan. Speaking of my Nan, she has the same sofa. And I write all my blog posts on that big box that my Dad is proudly working on! That’s a lie, I don’t think that computer could handle anything we do now on the internet. To think I once thought we were so cool for having a modern computer.
The dream is always to look back and laugh.
’90s, hell yeah.
