8. Thinking, “Hey look! A bunch of pastel-colored bugs are holding up my hair!” was a good look:

Who started that trend anyway?!

9. Literally smelling like you’d been rolling around in the grass all day when you sprayed on Gap’s grass scent:

Or like you just mowed the lawn.

10. Or trying to explain what your Crabtree & Evelyn scent actually smelled like to anyone:

“So… it smells like wet flowers?”

11. Dousing yourself and your bedroom in the same Bath and Body Works scents:

“Wow, you smell… just like your room?”

12. Spending more time licking your favorite Lipsmackers flavors off your lips than actually putting them on:

“It’s moisturizing and delicious!”

14. Feeling your eyes burn just a little when you opened your Stridex or Oxy pads container:

That alcohol burn…

15. Getting super pissed-off if you accidentally smudged your Wet Shine nail polished before it finished drying.


16. Being completely heartbroken when you couldn’t find Hard Candy’s Sky Blue nail polish anywhere:

Until last year anyway.

17. And finally, looking like a unicorn had just sneezed on you thanks to all that Claire’s body glitter gel:
