Things I Love About the 90’s

398

I was born in the late 80’s, but I’m a straight up 90’s kid. My earliest memories are when I was 3 years old (which I turned in late 1991), so I have plenty of memories from this truly awesome decade. If I had to pick one decade that is my absolutely favorite, it is most definitely the 90’s. Here is a list of some of my favorite things about the 90’s.

My Life in the Early 2000’s

My 6th grade yearbook.

It was the best of times, and it was the worst of times. 2000-2005 is probably one of the most prominent periods in my life. It’s funny because as an adult, 5 years seems like nothing. It literally goes by in the blink of an eye. However, this particular half-decade seems like it waged on forever. I definitely think a lot of things that happened helped shape my life and the person I am today.

▪ I spent tons of time at the skating rink. I always took my own rollerblades along because I preferred them to traditional skates.

▪ I also loved to ride my bike around the neighborhood a lot.

▪ I was in middle school during most of this time, in which I would get my first set of failing grades.

I’m going to take it back to what I did in my first FFOF, and list some of my current favorite songs. I plan to do this every so often since there are always new songs I’m loving at the moment. Here are five songs I’m loving right now.

  1. Marilyn Manson – “We Know Where You Fucking Live” (Rock)
  2. Taylor Swift – “Ready For It” (Pop)
  3. Jana Kramer – “I’ve Done Love” (Country)
  4. Omnimar – “Out Of My Life” (Industrial)
  5. Hollywood Undead – “California Dreaming” (Rap Rock)

Five Faves on Friday #8: Essential Oils

IMG_6966

Some people seem to think that roll-on essential oils are like perfumes. That is not the case. In fact, I really only smell the oils for a very short time after applying them, and then I can’t smell them anymore. They actually work by penetrating your skin. You apply them to pulse points, such as your wrist, temples, neck, and even the bottoms of your feet. Since pure essential oils are really strong and are not supposed to be put on your skin, they are diluted with a carrier oil (such as coconut oil), which you can rub on your skin. Your body then absorbs the natural oils which can have physical and mental benefits.

There are the skeptics who think that essential oils are pointless, but I personally like them and think they have benefited me by using them. Of course, they’re not a miracle cure by any means, but I think they can be helpful to an extent. Below are five of my favorite blends I like to use, all purchased from one of my favorite Etsy shops, Mythic Mist.

Five Faves on Friday #6: Wax Melts

I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit obsessed with wax melts. I’m constantly burning them, which makes my room smell amazing. This weeks Five Favorites on Friday will feature some of my favorite scents from one of my favorite shops on Etsy, House Warming Wax Melts. Not only are the scents amazing, but she decorates each of her wax melts, which makes them even more awesome. Plus, they’re super affordable at only $3.50 a pack. (The seller only ships within the United States though).

Hippie Chick
This is an Earthy scent. The best way to describe it is that it smells similar to incense. I believe this one is my favorite out of all of them. The smell is incredibly calming for me.

Scramblin’ Spiders
Despite the name and decoration, this is a very light scent. It reminds me of freshly washed laundry or being at a spa.

61

Circus Magic
This wax melt is the perfect level of sweet without being too overbearing. It’s a perfect blend of cotton candy and apples.

62

Coconut Rose
If you love the smell of coconut, and you love the smell of roses, then you will love this. It’s the perfect blend of both.

63

Fruity Pebbles
This literally smells just like the cereal. If you’re a fruity pebbles fan, you will love it.
