I’ve been a bit nostalgic lately. Nostalgia can be a wonderful thing, but it can also be terrible. Nevertheless there are a number of things that I wish could make a comeback or be trendy again. In no specific order:
Phones with buttons
I am so over touch screen phones. After having one for 2 years, all I want is to have a smart phone that has actual buttons. The amount of spelling errors I make and mishaps I have when stalking people on line, is too damn high. More specifically can flip phones make a comeback please?
Ringer and Surburgatory
Sometimes I wonder how shows like Grey’s Anatomy get renewed for multiple seasons when good shows like Ringer and Surburgatory get cancelled after only a few.
Ringer was produced by Sarah Michelle Gellar, who also acted in it, and it was cancelled after its first season. In the show, Sarah plays twins Bridget Kelly and Siobhan Marting. When Siobhan goes missing on a boating trip, Bridget pretends to be her. It was so intriguing and had one plot twist after another. It kept me on edge, not to mention that it also starred the handsome Ioan Gruffudd.
With three seasons under its belt, Surburgatory lasted a bit longer than Ringer. Its about George and Tessa Altman who moves from New York City to the suburb, Chatswin. The situations they find themselves in while trying to adapt to their new living situation are hilarious. To say I was disappointed when the show was cancelled, would be an understatement.
Maybelline Wet Shine Diamonds Liquid Lip Gloss
The Maybelline Wet Shine Diamonds Lip Gloss was the first lip gloss I bought after upgrading from those glosses with the balls. It was the shade Firecracker Red and was on sale at Clicks for around R25 (if I recall correctly). Little did I know that it was on sale because it was being discontinued. Back then I prefer gloss over lipstick and I wish I bought another tube. It was a gorgeous shade that shined and glittered like crazy. If Maybelline ever brought a limited edition of it out again, I would definitely be purchasing a few tubes.
Plain t-shirts without any slogans
Do you know how hard it is to find plain shirts without some trendy phrase on it? And if you do find one, it’s either cropped or it’s so expensive I’d have to sacrifice an organ to afford one. Also just because I don’t want to wear a top with #YOLO on it, doesn’t mean I want to dress like a great-granny. Get it together stores!
My brain and my sanity
Oh dear, I think I’ve completely lost the plot.
