Back in Time: My Prized Possessions from the 80's and 90's, Rediscovered

I spent the week visiting my mom in Cleveland. As I was packing up my suitcase this morning, I came across my old pins and nail polishes -- left behind from the 80's and 90's! We're talking pins from The Body Shop and No Excuses, and nail polishes from CoverGirl, Wet 'n' Wild and even Old Navy. Take a trip down memory lane with me and check out what I found!

Back in the early 90's, The Body Shop provided pins with purchases. Not that I needed much prompting to buy shower gels, glycerin soaps and customized fragrances, but I loved getting all these pins encouraging people to stop animal testing. And my No Excuses jeans? They were made so much cooler with the addition of my NO! pins, wouldn't you say?

I've always been obsessed with nail polish. And while my tastes may have gotten considerably more expensive over the years (can you say Chanel, Rescue Beauty Lounge and Deborah Lippmann?), my penchant for crazy colors was brought out at a very early age. I kept all my original nail polishes in a little jewelry box, with no real rhyme or reason to them -- but I was pretty excited to come across them again today! Here's what I discovered:

  1. Love the trip down memory lane. I think the only beauty items I may still have left from my tweens have long since disappeared.
