Another awful part of winter is the horrible chapped lips! But fortunately everyone’s favourite flavoured lip saving company is still around to save us all! Remember LIPSMACKER?!
Every 90s girl had an entire Caboodles container filled with these yummy little sticks and you’d have to run out and grab every single new flavour (and then STILL only use your favourites!)
I didn’t even know they were still around until my mom (of all people!) surprised me with a pack of Lip Smackers for Christmas – in all the best classic flavours! I literally did one of these SANTA ACTUALLY REMEMBERED screams! 😀 Not sure how she remember that I asked for these back in 1999, but I’m still ecstatic. They smell like happy nostalgia and still moisturize well.
Everyone had their absolute favourite… mine were Cotton Candy and Nilla Mint Frost! What about you?!
If you want to be thrown back to your happy childhood days (or just want a great lipchap!) you can grab your own on Amazon!
My first memories of Hello Kitty were back in the early 90s with an adorable little show called Hello Kitty and Friends which aired on YTV here in Canada! They were a series of short episodes based on popular fairytales – like Snow White and my favourite Alice and Wonderland. Do you remember this?!?
I remember waking up BRIGHT and early to catch them and one of my strongest childhood memories was being absolutely terrified of the Big Clock episode!
Sanrio has been dousing the world in PURE KAWAII CUTENESS since the 1970s, and despite being a lifelong fan, I only started avidly collecting Hello Kitty stuff back in 2015/2016. Before that you’ll be surprised to know that I was living a very frugal minimalist life (I’ve really made up for it since then ;))!
I think I have a couple of hundred Kitty (and and her friends!) items now – from purses, plushies, stationery, to my microwave, books, and a toilet paper cover… anything you can IMAGINE (I’ll catalogue it all eventually)! She’s an icon for positivity and fills me with pure nostalgic happiness and makes it impossible to have a bad day anymore!
So are you ready to fall down the rabbit hole into her cute little world?!
