If you grew up in the 80s and 90s then you probably grew up watching some of my favorite shows like Saved By The Bell, Different Strokes and of course, Punky Brewster!
Soleil Moon Frye has some serious acting accomplishments under her belt, but for me she will always be Punky. There was a time when I didn’t have the most stylish clothes (my parents didn’t have the funds), and I certainly didn’t know how to tame these crazy Latina curls so, you can imagine how much I stood out. I was a proud tomboy, a Daddy’s girl and I always had my nose in a book. I was a little geek and at times that didn’t make me the most popular girl in class. Watching Punky made me appreciate my “unique” sense of style, and while everyone was rushing to grow up, I was happy being a kid and letting my imagination run wild.
It was so lovely meeting her recently at a Target Holiday Preview where I got to ask her to share her favorite health tip with my readers. I wish I had pictures to share but my phone and DropBox were full at that time -ugh! Thank you again to Soleil and Target!
