11 things that made every 90s Irish schoolgirl feel like a queen

Remember when butterfly clips were the height of glamour?

1. Whipping out a copy of Shout/Mizz/Bliss/Kiss to read with your mates in the playground

2. When your Mam bought you a copy of Sabrina’s Secret

And you got to bring the nail art pen to school and rub it in everyone else’s faces.


3. Writing with a colourdey gel pen

Procured from Toymaster with your pocket money, obvs.

4. When you got to write on ~*~scented notepaper ~*~

Nothing makes a gal feel more glamorous than getting to write on paper that smells vaguely like strawberries.

5. Owning any sort of Groovy Chick merchandise

Bonus points if you had a Groovy Chick throw pillow in your bedroom, too.


6. Applying scented lip balm in the middle of class and knowing everyone else was mega jealous of your bubblegum-scented lips

7. Going on holidays and coming back with one of these in your hair

“Yeah, I was in Fuerteventura. No biggy.”


8. Wearing a choker that you got in Claire’s to school

And hiding it under your shirt collar when your teacher gave out to you.

9. Tying back your hair with glittery butterfly clips

As Fergie once sang: “G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S.”
