Mizz Magazine 1999


When I was rooting through my box of childhood objects and found my folder of spells, I had a peek at the back of the snippets I'd cut out. It's fascinating to see these little glimpses of what a pre-teen girls' magazine was like in the late '90s.
Is it just me or does Dec look a little bit like Claire Balding?
Hello, I'm Becky, I want to be a pop star and I'll pretty much do anything if it means being in your magazine. 
Look at that hair! I'm surprised they had anything about texting in these, to be honest! 
Speaking of hair, is it wrong that I totally want my hair in those buns? 
 Who doesn't want to win a midi hi-fi and a Dreamcast console? 

Or you could win a funky Nokia 3210. We all had one, right? 
If you get 33b, you're awesome! I never even knew any of this person's songs but I remember they were in all the magazines. 
Oh those were the days! My dad had a Real Slim Shady ringtone. So cool! 

Choose yer look, guys! Is that an Ali G? Oh man, the late '90s is killing me! 
A Steps Cindy dressed in all the band's trendy clobber? Laters, I'm off to Toys R Us! 
Well, this doesn't sound like a dangerous place at all! Anyway, it doesn't work anymore. Sorry guys! 

Now I wish I'd kept all my magazines! I have some bridal magazines from 2000 coming up in a couple of days so keep your eyes peeled for that! The hair and make up is really something!

    1. I wish I'd kept some of the whole magazines rather than just snippets. I'd love to flick through them!

    2. I used to read Mizz and Shout when I was about 10, then when I got to 12 or so I upgraded to Sugar, J17, Bliss and CosmoGirl. Then when I reached 16 it was Kerrang all the way haha!

  12. It must've been a lot of fun writing this magazine. I found an old Smash Hits and a Bliss recently when I was clearing out a box of my old crap. There were some crazy hairstyles and outfits in there, as well as song lyric pages(!) and some hilarious quizzes.

  13. Oh wow! Those phone things man I remember loving them, I wasted so much money haha. My favourite magazine was always Smash Hits, I got every issue, wish I'd kept them now ha

I love comments more than I love Alan Rickman (...that's a lot!)

I reply to comments every Sunday so check back to see my response. Even though I might not be able to reply to every single comment, especially those on older posts, (I'm only human, as much as I may seem like a truly awesome dinorobot), I really do appreciate every single one.
