L.O.L: Nostalgia Issue

In view of Lippy’s Launch Party tomorrow for the Nostalgia Issue, we have teamed up with our members to find out what makes them nostalgic…

Leah, 21, English Literature, Final year

What’s a nostalgic song that comes to mind?
This is a really hard question… the Shania Twain one… ‘You Don’t Impress Me Much” that’s quite nostalgic. It makes me think of leopard print!

What period do you wish you could live in, fashion wise?
Definitely 70s maybe; long hair, suede, flares, chunky boots…

What makes you feel nostalgic?
There’s so many foods and places that make me feel nostalgic… I think christmas songs, thinking about christmases that have passed and being with my family.

Favourite TV show/ film from your childhood?
I use to really really love the powerpuff girls. My brother does art and he used to draw the powerpuff girls with really arty pens and I used to colour them in. I’d always yell at him to draw me more.

What are you looking forward to the most in Lippy’s Nostalgic print edition?
I’m head of marketing for Lippy and I’m definitely excited for the launch party! I cannot wait. I can’t wait for the cover either. I’m also exited about how ‘Bumble’ (the dating app) has been involved.

Laura, 25, Creative Writing, Masters

What’s a nostalgic song that comes to mind?
Shaggy – Angel… makes me think of being at school and school discos.

What period do you wish you could live in, fashion wise?
I think the 20s, with all the dresses and that sort of classy style.

What makes you feel nostalgic?
The party ring biscuits definitely, the ones you’d get at every single birthday party!

Favourite TV show/ film from your childhood?
I used to love Parent Trap… what a film. Lindsey Lohan back in the day.

What are you looking forward to the most in Lippy’s Nostalgic print edition?
I’m looking forward to everything. Particularly the launch party, because I’ve already seen the issue now and everything in it is really good but actually having a copy in my hands will be amazing. Also looking forward to the cocktails, it’s going to be amazing!

Zainab, 20, History, Second year

What’s a nostalgic song that comes to mind?
Promiscuous girl – Nelly Furtado. It makes me think of singing it with my friends, singing it out loud.

What period do you wish you could live in, fashion wise?
Probably now to be honest. Hard question. Now I feel you see a resurgence of loads of different trends and you can do what you want!

What makes you feel nostalgic?
I think probably walking through London, different areas hold different memories which come to mind.

Favourite TV show/ film from your childhood?
Probably CBBC as a whole channel. The old graphics; green and purple that they used to have, that’s so nostalgic to me.

What are you looking forward to the most in Lippy’s Nostalgic print edition?
Seeing all the art work paired up with the articles because I haven’t seen much of it yet, only snippets. I’m really excited to see the finished product!

Kirsten, 19, Fashion Marketing, Second year

What’s a nostalgic song that comes to mind?
Anastasia – I’m Out Of Love. It makes me think of singing in the car with my mum!

What period do you wish you could live in, fashion wise?
Definitely 2000s… Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie; the velvet, the baby pink and everything!

What makes you feel nostalgic?
The french biscuits, think they’re called ‘Bienes’. They make me feel so nostalgic because I used to eat them at eurocamp in France; me and my mum used to eat them together. There was a controversy they had horse meat in but honestly horse meat or no horse meat i’ll eat Bienes.

Favourite TV show/ film from your childhood?
Obviously the Lizzie Maguire movie.

What are you looking forward to the most in Lippy’s Nostalgic print edition?
I was also head of marketing this year, my role was to organise the launch party with Leah. I’m looking forward to this so much, for the cocktails definitely.

Cecilia, 21, History, Final year

What’s a nostalgic song that comes to mind?
Good question.. anything by Britney. I’m thinking ‘hit me baby one more time’ was my ultimate nostalgic jam. It makes me think of a lot of things but mostly school discos.

What period do you wish you could live in, fashion wise?
I wish I could live in the 70s because of their clothes, everything to do with their clothes is amazing! I love hippy fashion.

What makes you feel nostalgic?
My dads from Brazil so Brazilian food makes me feel super nostalgic.

Favourite TV show/ film from your childhood?
Definitely The Lion King… it really makes me think of being a kid again.

What are you looking forward to the most in Lippy’s Nostalgic print edition?
Because I’m the editor, I’ve already seen it all but I’m really looking forward to everyone seeing it for the first time! It’s going to be amazing.
