Being a kid from the '90s, these trends will make you feel like we are living in the '90s again and it is not a bad thing.

Undoubtedly, the '90s was a good decade for fashion trends and at the time was often overlooked. We are now in 2019 and we appreciate these trends more than ever and it looks like these trends aren't going anywhere anytime soon.

1. Mom/ High Waisted Jeans


As I look back at my jean choices, I don't know how I have lived without high waisted jeans or leggings. Not only are they more comfortable than regular waisted jeans, but they are definitely more appealing. At least to me, they are. Just think of the many variations they are made too, all possibilities are endless. I hope they never go out of style again, and if they do I'll still be wearing them non stop.

2. Overalls

I'm not gonna lie when I was a kid I rocked overalls like there was no tomorrow. My grandma was the type to make me tons of clothing by hand and overalls were no exception. I never thought they would come back, but they are.

3. Scrunchies

Hair ties have gotten boring over the years. Granted, they can damage your hair. Scrunchies are hair ties, but a lot cuter and better for the hair and reduces friction that can be caused by regular hair ties.

4. Crop Tops


What's the best kind of shirt to wear with the beloved mom or high waisted jeans? Crop tops. You can not only wear them with jeans, but with leggings and skirts. The tops can be both used as casual wear and you can dress it up in many ways.

5. Small Backpacks

Purses are a thing of the past. Small backpacks have a comeback and even big designers are jumping on the bandwagon, from Gucci, Michael Kors, and many more and it is an accessory you should definitely invest in!

6. Fanny Packs


As well as small backpacks, fanny packs have been the replacement for a purse or any other accessory bag. I have never seen so many people wear fanny packs until now. It used to be if you wore or used one you weren't cool. There are so many variations of fanny packs that you cannot go wrong and it can put an outfit together perfectly!

7. Platform Shoes

Lately, I have been seeing all kinds of platform shoes. It is like the just rose from the dead because I haven't seen them until these past few months. I could never pull them off, but I'm glad they are around.

8. Denim Skirts


I remember being a little girl and wearing denim skirts then getting made fun of for wearing them. Well, guess what? They're back and it is such a staple piece that can be paired with anything! Crop tops, sweaters, a casual top, just about anything!

9. Chokers


Remember those rubber chokers that had floral patterns? Yeah, me too. As a kid, I remember always seeing them around then they kind of phased out. It looks like they have come back and with cuter styles, I could have ever imagined.

10. Round Sunglasses

For the longest time, aviator sunglasses were all the hype. Well now, round sunglasses have taken the spotlight. You will definitely be noticed if you wear a pair and have I forgot to mention, they're super cute!

11. Athleisure

As a college girl, I am all about athleisure. I can wear it all day every day if I wanted to. I am curious as to how it stopped being a trend in the first place? It can be your go-to for a casual outing without looking too lazy!

12. Neon Colors

Neon colors being retro is a thing of the past. If you wear any kind of neon chances are eyes will be on you even if it is for a split second. It can be matched with such the simplest outfit pieces but make such a big statement!

13. Flannels


I remember being in middle school and always flaunting the flannels and have been ever since. It is easy to wear them on their own or layer it with a t-shirt underneath

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.


CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

I Went To Disney For The First Time Since COVID-19 And It's Officially The Cleanest Place On Earth

I stopped focusing on the pandemic simply because, for the first time in months, I felt safe.

After a few months of self-quarantining, becoming suspicious of every cough, and blowing through masks like a medical school student, restrictions due to the pandemic are easing up a bit and businesses are warily reopening. While these public spaces may look the same on the outside, the way they function and operate is vastly different than a few months ago.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.
