If you fondly remember the maze screensaver, the green desktop background, or the helpful paper clip on your computer, you’re definitely a 90s girl. Those were the days of snood games, butterfly hair clips and stretchy tattoo necklaces. Highlights like Gap perfume, glitter and boy band CDs like NSYNC were the craze.
Remember muting music on the Discman?
The 90s also had its own unique flavor and sound. Gap perfume and glitter were all the rage, adding to the distinct feel of the era. And let’s not forget boy band CDs, with groups like NSYNC defining the music scene. These CDs were often played on the latest technological gadget of the time – the Sony Discman. Sony’s first portable CD player was a must-have, letting you listen to Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls and Britney Spears on the go.
Still owns a beeper
Then there was the beeper or pager, a small device that preceded the widespread use of cell phones. It was a sign of connection and connection, especially important in a time when instant communication was not as accessible as it is today.

If you’ve ever worn a beeper on your jeans as a status symbol, it’s a telltale sign that you’re a ’90s girl.
