1. Tinted diamantรฉ sunglasses

These had zero UV protection, but they made every girl feel as sassy as Anastacia, so it was worth it.

2. Stick on earrings

No noughties look was complete without about 17 of these gems on your ears, cheeks, nose, and wherever else they would stick.

3. Lip Smackers

I am not a grown up bc I got very excited about jumbo lipsmackers ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Sure, these made your lips luxurious and glossy, but more importantly, they tasted delicious!

4. A glittery eyeshadow set

These came before the world of YouTube tutorials, and it really showed in the lack of blending on every '00s girls' eyelids.

7. Butterfly clips

Butterfly hairclips. The nits of the 90s.

These were so pretty, but stepping on one of these was worse than stepping on Lego.

8. Heelys

Every noughties girl was sliding past their haters in these bad boys. They were extra cool if they lit up.

12. Lipstick erasers

How cute is this? It's not a lipstick it's actually a rubber/eraser and its scented too ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’„ #StationaryAddict

Sure, they were meant to erase things, but they were just way too pretty to ever use.

13. Pre-packed book pencil cases.

If you were lucky, your mum would let you get one of these on your back to school trip to Woolworths.

14. Stackable pencils

Losing one of the little nibs and never being able to use your pencil again was the first heartbreak every noughties girl went through.

15. Fluffy lock diaries

third grade me was such an icon with my lisa frank pink fluffy purse diary

Sure, the lock could easily be opened with a bobby pin, but it still felt like your secrets were safe.

16. Girl Tech diary

FOUND MY GIRL TECH DIARY BUT I FORGOT THE PASSWORD SO I BROKE INTO IT AND THE STUFF I WROTE IN HERE IS SO CRINGE

An upgrade on the classic โ€” this voice activated secret diary, complete with an invisible ink pen was all any noughties girl needed.

17. A sticker collection

A selection that was beautiful and impressive, yet completely pointless. Some of your best stickers were picked up at the annual Scholastic book fair.

Mood rings were the only reliable way to find out how you were really feeling.

For all the 90's and naughties chicks x ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’‹

24. Love2Love bears

These were a more sophisticated upgrade from the Tamagotchi, plus they smelled amazing.

25. And finally, scoubidous

You'd make loads of these to put on your keyring, even though you didn't actually have any keys.
