I'll be dragging the couple posts about retro things from there, over to here, and not holding back when I want to gush about something from the 80's and 90's that I was obsessed with, and it definitely won't be confined to just cute things too! I would love to use this space to add some various reviews of things I loved from those decades, from books to movies.
There's been a recent buzz about the 90's especially places on Tumblr, but I feel like this new trend is exactly the same 80's trend that swept through high schools in the early 2000's and consumed by people who were still in kindergarten when the decade ended. The new 90's trend has sparked a fire in my 90's loving heart, but the trend most people are consuming is not my 90's but rather the later parts of the decade that they barely remembered, or experienced through the hand-me-downs of an older sibling, that I was clearly already mourning before the decade even ended. This blog will be about my 90's, from the ages of 5 to 15, with a little bit of leftover 80's, because that decade was so big that it didn't really end until sometime around 1993.
The name of this blog, Chica Cherry Cola, should be a pretty obvious reference to those of you that lived through this decade, but if you're just passing through and are unfamiliar with the name, it's part of the lyrics from the 1997 Savage Garden hit I Want You. I'm actually a huge Savage Garden, and now Darren Hayes, fan and I was sitting here trying think up an appropriate blog name when that song popped up on my playlist, like a sign from the blogging gods!
