I Can’t Dress Myself

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots β€˜N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Good afternoon, folks! 😎

Let’s get down to business with lunch and then I have some embarrassing fun (funny?) photos to share with you. I’m confident that you’ll at least crack a smile! πŸ˜‰


I worked at NuVal this afternoon, so I packed a lunch to take along with me. There’s slim pickings in our kitchen right now, so I managed to come up with a Siggi’s yogurt with Galaxy Granola and cherries on the side.


Ok, so, are you ready for a little fashion show? πŸ˜‰

Style 101

As a kid, I was pretty stylish. I wore a lot of dresses and girly stuff, like heart patterns and shades of pink and purple. I knew what I liked and rocked it.


And, of course, I always had the perfect outfit for every occasion, like the first day of kindergarten:


Or whale watching.


Even camping.


At that age, I was a natural fashionista. πŸ˜‰

But, the older I got, the more “interesting” my fashion choices became– hairstyles included!

(Apparently, the half up-half down side ponytail was cool in the late 80’s. And, I’m pretty sure my wavy hair was the result of leaving it in braids overnight. What can I say, I was on top of the trends.)


Clearly, I embraced the 80’s.


Did you ever layer your socks? I bet that goat appreciated my style that day.


Ok, so maybe the 80’s weren’t so terrible to me. But, by the early 90’s, my fashion sense got worse and worse.

(Please note the “scrunchie” on my wrist in the photo below. I thought wearing it there was much more stylish than in my hair.)


As you can see, I had a tremendous desire to dress just like Blossom. I thought her fashion sense was super hip.


I’m not even sure what to say about this last photo. I guess I had some sort of European thing going on with a beret and Scotty dogs on my sweater. Obviously, this outfit oozes coolness.


What embarrassing fashion trends did you embrace over the years?

P.S. I’m hosting a sweet giveaway this evening. These photos are a clue! πŸ˜‰



  1. Love it love it love it!!! Pure gold, thank you for sharing! Thank heavens I was born in the late 80s and missed THAT boat, but sadly I did, though not too often, do the midriff-baring thing of the nineties in year 7 and 8…

  2. HA nice! I wore these horrible Limited Too periwinkle sparkle pants in the sixth grade to my first after school dance. Glitter was EVERYWHERE by the end of the day. Bleh!

  3. Love the pictures! I remember slap-bracelets, side ponytails, and putting my t-shirt in one of those t-shirt clip things or hair bow. Oh, and my mom also made bright neon shoestring hair bows.

  4. Wow, hahah! Pretty amazing photos. I remember when I was little I used to wear those tight-like colorful cotton pants. They were cute… but when I didn’t realize I had kinda outgrown that stage and was still wearing them when I was 8, it was pretty bad. Hahah. And my HAIR in middle school…! Apparently I had never heard of a straightening iron. Or a hairbrush. Hah.

  5. These pictures are hilarious! I’m 26 and have a 31-year-old sister and boy, did this bring back memories. Love all the scrunchies! And we definitely layered our socks and scrunched them down like that haha πŸ™‚

  6. THank you so much for the photos! We have had rain up here in Southern Alberta since basically April 1 and I was really depressed getting up this morning, but these photos made me laugh my face off!! Not neccesarily laughing at you as much as your comments-thanks again and have a good day-I know I will not:)

  7. These pictures are awesome! Pretty sure the 90’s were a bad time to be a pre-teen/teen. I always had a scrunchie on my wrist and it HAD to match my outfit. I also had big bangs, braces, and impossibly frizzy hair.

  8. Hahahah I think you are the same age as one of my sisters. The 90’s were not very kind to her either. What about plucking your eyebrows almost completely off? I remember that was a key look back then!
