Okay… So I’ve got a confession to make… I preferred Sindy over Barbie growing up. This is not something I felt particularly ashamed bad about in the past, but as I’ve gotten older I realised most of my friends (then and now) couldn’t stand Sindy and were Barbie all the way.

‘Big head’, ‘tough hair’, ‘butters’ are just some of the comments I’ve heard uttered about my beloved Sindy in recent years, LOL!

But what do they know, huh? Yeah her head was massive a little large, but so what? And yes, I  still played with my friend’s Barbies from time to time, and I might have even owned one or two in my later toy-playing years, but my loyalty was always with Sindy.

So ladies, who were you repping in the days when all you had to worry about was which of your doll’s shoes to match with what outfit? Sindy or Barbie… Below is a impartial-ish case for both, from the perspective of my eight -year-old self (mostly)… You can vote your choice right at the bottom of this post!

jlsMost people who know me know that I am  a fan of UK boyband JLS, the runners-up of 2008’s series of the X-Factor. Afterall I have always been a sucker for the underdog, particularly when it is teamed with talent, hard work and humility. So I love seeing these guys have number one hits, get mobbed by thousands of screaming girls wherever they go, and announce arena tours, because, who would have thought it, right?

SisqoPicture001Singer/songwriter Mark ‘Sisqo’ Andrews made his name in the mid 90s as front-man of US r&b group Dru Hill. The quartet scored US hits such as Tell Me, In My Bed and How Deep Is Your Love, while later Sisqo became an international superstar when he went solo and released single, Thong Song (1999). But his career stalled not long afterwards, forcing him out of the limelight for nearly 10 years.
