I get nostalgic pretty much every day working at the Truffle HQ, but can’t help but go a little weak at the knees when new Care Bears merchandise comes in.
I collected the cards, had the cuddly toys, watched the cartoon, had the pencil case, all of it! If they there was tinned spaghetti in the shape of Care Bears (which I expect there most probably was), I’m sure I would have had that too!
So this month’s look is centered around our super cute new vintage print Care Bears t shirt on the popular and uber flattering rolled sleeve boyfriend tee (which has proved a massive hit with you)! I am also loving the current trend for midi skirts (no embarrassing moments on blustery days – phew!) and simply teaming with some classic Converse All Star high tops, you simply can’t go wrong!
And to when you are unwinding after all that shopping, why not take your tea in this super cute Retro Care Bears Mug! Ahhhh…
If (like us) the Truffle Shuffle is your fave bit of 80’s classic, The Goonies then out of all the TruffleShuffle T-Shirts this is the one you definitely need in your life. You’re in for such a treat with this awesome Do the TruffleShuffle t-shirt! To the unsuspecting eye, it looks like an awesome Goonies t-shirt, then POW – before you know it your reenacting Chunk’s piece de resistance! Featuring a classic design, the real magic happens when you lift your top up! (Oooh matron!)
If you’re a fan, then this tee is a movie t-shirt MUST HAVE! Enjoy!
Whats that? How to do the TruffleShuffle? Follow these 3 easy steps…..
1.Get in position with your feet apart and knees slightly bent
2.Lift your shirt up to your chin and expose that lovely belly
3.Shake that belly baby. DO IT!

So take a couple of minutes out from your busy day to reminisce with me, You know you grew up in the 80s if…
…Saturday mornings were spent watching Going Live, wishing you had your own Gordon the Gopher.
…Your ideal classmate would have been Tucker Jenkins from Grange Hill.
…You had a hairstyle inspired by King of Mullets Pat Sharp.
…You spent ages thinking about which Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle you would be, everyone wanted to be Raphael right!?
…You can recite the whole rap from The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air. “Now this is a story all about how, my life got flipped, turned upside down…” You’re singing along now, right!?
…You had enough time to complete computer games over and over again, and you still never got bored of them!
…You watched every episode of Jem but were secretly cheering on the Misfits, they had better songs!
…You knew what Willis was “talking’ bout”.
…You saved up pocket money every week to scare yourself with a new Point Horror book!
…You planned a hundred different trips that you would make in the Delorean.
…You dreamed of going on Funhouse, The Crystal Maze and Knightmare.

…The Skesis from the Dark Crystal still gives you nightmares.
…You had a slow dance at the School Disco to True by Spandau Ballet.
…You wanted to live under the sea with Ariel.
…You would always argue in the playground about what was better, Nintendo or Sega.
…You kept trying to get the high score on Pac-Man but could never quite make it!
…You would spend hours perfecting mix-tapes and then play them to death, extra points if you were skilled enough to tape songs off the radio and were able to avoid the DJ at the start and end.
…The Care Bear you identified with most was Grumpy Bear.
…All you wanted for Christmas was a My Little Pony
…You used to check your wardrobe for signs of E.T. before going to bed every night.
