Who Am I?
I am a typical 80s child. Born at the start of the decade, my childhood was punctuated with teased fringes, bike shorts, bubble dresses and blue light discos. The soundtrack to these formative years was Concrete Blonde, Whitney Houston, Prince, Queen, Guns n Roses, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Pat Benatar, INXS.
Of course, like every other generation, I think the decade I grew up in was the best. I also think it has the unfortunate role of a forgotten decade – where the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s are all held up as magical times, the 80s seems to be constantly passed over. Thankfully this is starting to change – the music is making a comeback and so is the fashion – for better or worse!
I have a genuine love for all things 80s – movies, music, TV, fashion, celebs, all the good things and the good times! Mostly, I’m super stoked to be able to share all of my faves and my finds with you!
Monday – Manic Monday / The Monday Review
On Mondays I post anything and everything to do with the 80s – music, movies, celebs, whatever! If it was released in the 80s or is 80s inspired, you’ll find it here. Monday is also the day I review anything (and I mean anything!) 80s related! (Please contact me if you have something you think I should include or review!)
Wednesday – Double-Play Wednesday
Every Wednesday you get a double shot of 80s or 80s-inspired videos to get you over hump day!
Friday – Fab Friday / 80s Top 5
Every Friday I bring you a countdown of the top 5 of anything and everything to do with the decade! Want to know the top 5 best romantic comedies? The best new wave songs? The best scandals? Tune in on Fridays to join the countdown! Sometimes I take a break from the Top 5 to talk about something 80stastic you really, really need to know before the weekend!
