A trip to childhood memories lane

October 27, 2015 | Nostalgia, Personal, Vintage | 5 comments

Yesterday I was mesmerizing about the past. I am not talking about the roaring twenties, fifties or sixties. No, this time I am talking about the time I grew up: (mainly) the nineties. Certain things that were so common (or literally painful) back then, are now filed in the funny childhood memories section. I am actually the kind of person who talks like the nineties are still 10 years ago, but time flies. We are almost 20-25 years away. There are always funny moments that you remember from the time that you were a kid. Here are a few memories that always make me smile (or: #facepalm) when I think back.

Random Vintage meets Present thoughts on a random Monday

When you have a Vintage meets Present blog, the past meets present vibes pop up anywhere and anyplace. So here are some random vintage meets present thoughts on a random Monday night:

When you’re totally digging the vintage fashion style. But you realise it’s not a good idea to turn up at work like this:

Before selfies were cool

Remember the pre-selfie time a few years ago? The time when you asked someone else to make a picture of you with a good old (digital) camera. Or…the time when you used the self-timer button for delayed action shutter release to create those very professional and spontaneous pictures that still make you proud. “No this picture was not made by a professional. Shutter buttons for life.”  The shutter release button time is still going strong, because why wait for someone else to make a picture, when your shutter release button skills are still going strong.
