I found a post called “35 Signs You Grew Up in Los Angeles in the ’90s” on BuzzFeed this week and I have to say it was pretty spot on. Of the 35 signs listed, I identified with 28 of them. Thrifty Ice Cream, the La Brea tar pits, school earthquake drills and laser tag at Ultrazone are just a few of the things I remember all too well from my childhood. Click through the gallery to see some of the other signs that applied to my LA upbringing and then head over to BuzzFeed to check out the rest. xoxo, Whit

For my fellow 90′s kids,
I hope you all enjoy and appreciate this awesome new commercial as much as I do. Apparently Internet Explorer is making a comeback, and after watching their new ad campaign, they have my attention. Yin Yangs, Yo-Yo’s, Pogs, Trolls, Fanny packs, Lunchables, Super Soakers, bowl cuts — this commercial has it all. ENJOY! xoxo, Whit (more…)
Thought Catalog recently posted about 44 things that were essential for the early 2000s girl. It is so on point! See below for which trends I was most guilty of. I know I’m not alone in this– which ones hit home for you? xoxo, Whit
