Can I find my colourful plastic hair beads so I can burn them to the ground?

Posted on

1. Using these horrible facial stickers.

Just gonna put one glittery little circle on the outer corner of my eye...

2. Plastering braids with these coloured beads.

If awkward, non age-appropriate braiding wasn't enough, we decided to throw on some rainbow-ass hair beads too. Not even going to TOUCH on the noodly spiral ones.

3. Wearing coloured sunglasses that were 0% useful for protecting your eyes from the sun.

Who did these flatter? If they can't even look good on frikkin' Kareena, what the fuck was I thinking when I bought purple ones?

4. Getting super matchy-matchy. Never forget the ginormous flower necklace.

Channeling straight up Teletubbies sun.

5. Tying your hair in ponytail horns.

This is the kind of hairstyle that should have remained in the remains in a peppy Karisma-Govinda number and should not have escaped but life is not ideal and it did escape.

6. Buying horrid bell bottoms in all colours.

Not sure if jeans has been bastardised, or if the kameez has been bastardised, but everything is wrong. Burning every picture of self from this time.
