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 !
