80s themed day

I was recently sent a huge box from Best British Bloggers in collaboration with Ladbrokes Crazy 80's Video Slot Game full of eighties memorabilia including films, retro sweets and even a neon pink tutu and matching legwarmers! We spent today watching When Harry Met Sally... and Ghostbusters, eating lollies and sherbert fountains, dressing up and playing with Pac-Man and a Rubik's cube!  Seeing as I was born in 1995 I never got to experience any of this first hand when I was younger to recreate the 80s in my living room and just pretend!
It turns out that I'm not very good at the remote control Pac-Man racing game, it's probably for the better that I haven't had a single driving lesson yet as I can't really see that ending too well as I managed to crash my ghost into the wall on many occasions...

Thank you to Carissa, my sister Freya and my Mum for joining in with my little 80s themed day! I think having a 00s themed one would be fun too!

Thank you to Ladbrokes for sending me the 80's pack. I do not endorse gambling in any way but if you are over 18 it is your choice whether you decide to gamble or not. Please gamble responsibly


  1. That's amazing! 80s films are so good! Sounds like a good day!


  2. What a great kit for a party! If only it was 70s, I have a 70s party in a couple of weeks!

  4. Aw this seems like it was such a fun day! It must have been great to just take a break from everything and spend the day basically goofing around haha.

  5. Omg I need an 80s day! I may have to have a 90s day as well - me and my friends are all 90s kids so a day filled with Sabrina and Freddo bars would be beyond amazing!
