Meet Kate Steinberg, a Chicago-based millennial who spends her days as the lead writer for Ulta Beauty - in addition to appearing in HBO's 12 Dates of Christmas. But when she's not busy typing away at work, she's entertaining the masses with her LOL-worthy videos that she posts regularly.

If you're a millennial, chances are that these videos will unlock some long-lost memories in your brain. Her funny clips send us all the way back to our awkward tween and teenage years. And while we mainly try to forget the awkward style and embarrassing behavior, if we're going to have a reminder, it might as well be in the form of a video that leaves us in stitches. And clearly, her 250 thousand-plus followers agree. One video of her's, in particular, has really struck a chord with fans, as she outlines a pretty specific yet relatable memory. "It's 2001 & your best friend is having their birthday at the mall," the video is captioned. Complete with butterfly clips, an Aeropostale hoodie, and Paul Frank purse, Kate walks us through what it was like to be a certified mall rat at that age.

Armed with a single $20 bill (most likely her allowance from her parents), Steinberg hits the shops in classic early 2000s fashion. From leaving Abercrombie and Fitch with nothing but a bag to blowing all the cash at Auntie Anne's, this mall excursion is one we can relate to far too well. But perhaps the funniest part was Kate being dared by her friends to enter the forbidden land of Victoria's Secret. Fans couldn't get enough of the video, throwing over 50,000 likes her way and piling into the comments. "I don't know how you do it, but every throwback you post is an exact replica of my childhood - SO good," one user gushed. And the video even got the seal of approval by being reposted by the popular content page @betches.
