After seeing this post on Into The Gloss, my heart ached for a little bit of the 90's.
It was the best surprise when I'd come home from school to find my mum had bought me the latest Spice Girl's album. I'd play it 24/7, learning all the words (thank goodness I didn't know what '2 become 1' was about back then!!).
Of course I was Posh Spice. Never as skinny, but my tanned skin and dark hair in a bob ensured I was the best candidate at school. Soon everyone just called me Posh. I had her little hand gestures down pat and even forced myself to prefer Lemon Chupa Chups. They were the classiest option after all, dahling!
Remember those Spice Girl Dolls? Don't even get me started on the fact that someone bought me Sporty Spice, complete with arm-band tattoo. Mum rectified it by buying me Posh.
The Spice World movie was on repeat everyday. This dress is dry clean only!
I think my Posh obsession started my serious love for makeup. Her smouldering eyes were my go-to look for every school disco, not to mention my Warehouse version of her 'little Gucci dress'.
Such a classic beauty then and now. Just forget those years in the middle!
Which Spice Girl were you?
