Rainy Day Rambles: Polly Pockets & Frappuccinos

Hi!! 💕

I thought I’d do something a little different today, rather than my usual outfit posts! It’s a cold, rainy and wet Sunday, and I have a very warm table inside Starbucks as I type this. I’d much rather just watch the rain from afar than be out in it * ick *.

I have many a Polly Pocket from my childhood, and recently I was reunited with my absolute favorite one, which I found in a box! Funny enough, I had a dream about this Polly Pocket. That motivated me to search for it…guess we were meant to reunite, huh? Thanks, dream!

I’d actually forgotten what was inside. Turns out, it’s an Arabian palace theme, complete with a red jewel in a chest and a monkey. ❤️ MEMORIES……………

Fast forward to present day. Thanks to Google search, I learned that Polly Pockets are still being made. I actually did not know this! I thought they were a thing of the past, but apparently they’re still in creation.

THUS, I WAS PROMPTED TO GET THIS BIRTHDAY CAKE POLLY POCKET.

How could I not? It’s a CAKE SLICE!!!!

I was stunned, as a woman in her 30’s speaking, at how Polly Pocket has evolved since I had them in the early 90’s. I mean this is ultra fancy, upscale Polly Pocket now; look at the interior design and attention to detail?!?!

Also, the figurines are a a very soft rubber texture now. My mind was blown, hahaaa…

Lastly, let’s take a look at my new hair clips! What a photo opportunity this was, no?

My sister made these hair clips for me (and several other Christmas themed ones you’ll see in upcoming outfit posts!). I wore these yesterday and I received more compliments on them than I would have imagined…although, I should have known since I was going into a Starbucks with frappuccinos on my head. I was like a walking Starbucks advertisement! 💚 yeeeeeah

Cheers to cute things. I’ll sip to that… * sips peppermint mocha *

Bye !

Butterfly Clips are Back…

Hey heeeeey!!! ❤️

I’m excited to talk about butterfly hair clips today! Do you remember them from the 90’s? They were a popular hair accessory (and into the early 2000’s, as I recall). 😎 I’ve been perusing Pinterest, swimming in a sea of nostalgia by looking up popular items from my childhood, and it persuaded me to indulge in an old-time hair accessory favorite.

I purchased a pack of 150 pieces for $8.99 on Amazon! They are super inexpensive, and there’s plennnnnnnty leftover in case you lose some or they happen to break by chance, haha!

I remember loving these as a kid. I think they’re so fun, bright, and playful. And life needs some fun, brightness, and playfulness, don’t you think?

And here’s another outfit featuring another set of butterfly hair clips (these are from Claire’s). The dress is brand new from Forever 21! 💜 The orange and white dress above is also from Forever 21.

Did you ever wear butterfly hair clips? Are there certain fashions from a particular decade that you miss and wish to revive?! If there are…don’t be afraid to! 😘

Funny note: my friend told me I should put all 150 butterfly hair clips in my hair. I kindly had to decline…LOL!!!

See you next time! ❤️
