I grew up in the 80's. I don't miss going through a can of Aqua Net hairspray a week lol! I loved my leg warmers, and scrunchie socks. I miss wearing my checkerd high tops and switching one with my BFF so I had one red and one blue. Hahaha. I miss the music.

I was born in 1984. I only had 5 years in the 80's I don't remember much during that time. I like 80's music mostly pop and movies from the 80's like The Breakfast Club and other movies with Molly Ringwald.
