80s Tag!

Hello Hello, Lil Buns!

Not sure how many of you know this, but I was born in the 80s! It's also one of my favorite decades~

I found this video on Youtube and thought to try it out for myself.

Favorite 80s Movie
A lot of people will say Pretty in Pink was their favorite but I think Molly Ringwald really shined in Sixteen Candles. It really had a little of everything - comedy, romance, angst, suspense, amazing cast, etc. Everything that 80s movies were known for! And she ended up with an amazing birthday.♥

Favorite 80s Cartoon
"Glamour and glitter, fashion and fame"
Jem was definitely all of this and so much more. It was everything I dreamed of as a kid and really one of my inspirations. It had great 80s style, music and even showed that cartoons can have drama.

Favorite 80s TV Show
Pre- Saved by the Bell aka Good Morning, Miss Bliss was my favorite. While it only had Zack, Screech, and Lisa of the the more well-known main series Saved by the Bell, it was still a really fun show to watch. It you were a kid growing up in the 80s/90s and going to middle school, this was definitely the show you needed to see.

Favorite Thing About the 80s
80s hair. Especially if you were into the whole rock and pop scene. The wilder the better. There were tons of crazy hairstyles and bright colors. Probably where a lot of today's styles came from.

Where were you in 1989?
I was only 5 so most of the time I was seated in front of the television, especially on Saturday mornings when we actually had Saturday morning cartoons

Favorite 80s Cereal
As a kid, I was a total gamer and very into Super Mario Bros. and Legend of Zelda. So when this cereal came out, of course I had to have it. Every time I saw it in the store, I made sure my mom got it for me. I haven't seen any video game companies do this since then, sadly.

Favorite 80s Fashion Trend
Lace with everything! Whether it was short leggings, gloves or socks, there was always a lace version of it. And it would complete every single look.

Favorite Artist of the 80s
The Queen of 80s Pop - Cyndi Lauper. Every song was basically an instant hit and/or used in a movie. Teens in the 80s had it rough with the parents' generation and trying to be themselves. So her music really became an inspiration and influence.

Favorite Song of the 80s
Take on Me by Ah-Ha. I don't care who you are, but everyone has to have heard this song at least once in their life. It's a true 80s pop song and one of the first to have animation with live action. Plus, it's extremely catchy.

Favorite 80s Book
I grew up reading Calvin and Hobbes. As a kid, it's a fun comic that's easy enough to accept it as that. But it's when you become an adult that you understand that there was a lot more to this little boy and his adventures with his stuffed tiger.

Favorite 80s Icon
Molly Ringwald is the first person I think of when I think about the 80s. All of her movies were great and she's always been so adorable!

Favorite 80s Crush
I'm embarrassed to say my crush... Young Michael J. Fox. I watched him in all of the Back to the Future movies, Teen Wolf, Family Ties Stuart Little, Atlantis, and Spin City. And I loved every bit of it.

Favorite Toy from the 80s
Original My Little Pony toys were and always will be my addiction. As a kid, I loved bright and pastel colors and magical creatures (even now!). And what's not to love about gorgeous collectible ponies with castle style play sets?

Favorite Candy Bar from the 80s
Before I developed an allergy to peanuts, Snickers used to be my favorite candy bar. I still miss them.

If you made it all the way to the end, you've been tagged!

What are your favorites from the 80s?

That's all for now! See you next time!
