Hello Kitty x World Market Collection: Sports Edition!

Hello Kitty x World Market Collection: Sports Edition!

Back in August 2019, I wrote about a cute collaboration between Hello Kitty and World Market. It was an exclusive collection with a theme of Omatsuri; a special Japanese festival. This summer Hello Kitty and friends are back at the World Market with a new whole new look and another special theme! Just in time for summer; Hello Kitty, Keroppi, My Melody and Badtz Maru are getting sporty with the Hello Kitty x World Market Collection: Sports Edition!

My favorites from this line include the Hello Kitty Friends melamine plates. I really love the designs on these plates because it really showcases the Sports Edition theme. The plates feature tennis player Hello Kitty. water polo player Keroppi, rhythmic-gymnast My Melody and a soccer player Badtz-Maru.

Not only are these plates super cute; they are super light weight; thus making them the best plates to use for Hello Kitty Foodie dining at home.

Just like the last collection; there is once again a gigantic and awesome Hello Kitty Cookie jar. For this cookie jar; Hello Kitty is all dressed up in her best tennis player’s outfit with a skirt featuring her classic red bow. She even has a matching tennis racket!

Alongside the cookie jar; World Market is offering a matching Hello Kitty coffee cup. We all know cookies and coffee are the perfect match 😉.

The cookie jar, coffee cup and the melamine plates definitely are perfect for summer treats!

But wait there’s more….. World Market is also offering A-Sha Taiwanese noodles in different Sanrio packaging. Can the kitchen get anymore cuter this summer? Even Badtz Maru can’t complain!

Hello Kitty and friends are definitely the champions in the kitchen this summer! This (super cute) Hello Kitty x World Market Collection: Sports Edition is now available at a World Market near you. 😉.

Hello STANCE x Sanrio collection!

Hello STANCE x Sanrio collection!

I am always on the go thanks to my travels and foodie adventures! If you see girl with long hair rushing around town in pink hello kitty sneakers that is most likely to be me ;). Perfect for my days of painting the town hello kitty pink is Sanrio’s latest collaboration!

Sanrio and STANCE have come together to bring a very special sock collection! The collection will feature some of our favorite Sanrio characters like Chococat, Keroppi, Badtz Maru and of course Hello Kitty!

Each sock pair from this collection is absolutely adorable. I simply cannot wait to rock these cute caricature socks!

I love the Hello Kitty socks. There is one that showcases Kitty in her super kawaii  red overalls.

There is also a Hello Kitty Tomboy lite sock with her signature red bow in a jacquard knit. Perfect for someone like me who is always on the move is the Hello Kitty socks in a knitted grey run crew and tab height.

Since I’m “hopping” from one place to the next looking for my next Hello Kitty foodie adventure, I can’t help but love the Keroppi socks too!

What can I say? Keroppi is going to help me hop on to my next pond…err restaurant! 🙂

I love everything from this new collaboration. STANCE x Sanrio doesn’t compromise comfort for style so you definitely have the best both of worlds with this.  Chococat, Badtz Maru, Keroppi, Hello Kitty socks!?! I want them all!

Hello Kitty Cafe Pop-Up Visit!

Hello Kitty Cafe Pop-Up Visit!

The day all of us Hello Kitty Foodies in Southern California has finally arrived with the opening of the first ever Hello Kitty Cafe Pop!

img_2841

It seemed like only yesterday when I wrote on this blog  a post about the upcoming cafe pop up and now it’s finally here. Cuteness overload and hello kitty happiness has hit California! Just this last July 15, 2016, the cafe pop up in the form of a pink metal shipping container had its grand opening at the Irvine spectrum.

I recently had the chance to visit the cafe and absolutely fell in love.

img_2825

The Hello Kitty Pop-Up cafe is every Hello Kitty Foodie’s dream come true. The outside alone is super kawaii. With a little gate embossed with bow ties,  a pink and white canopy and a gigantic hello kitty light on the top, it’s the cutest cafe in town!

img_2840

Right at the side of the cafe, where folks can place their orders, Hello Kitty herself is there to greet her cutie foodie fans.

The cafe has so many delicious offerings. They’ve got sweets, drinks and espressos! How about a birthday cake consisting of vanilla bean cake, sprinkles and butter cream or a strawberry streusel tart with fresh strawberries, toasted streusel and butter tart crust or Mama’s apple pie that has assorted apples, cinnamon and buttery pie crust?  Picking what sweet treat to get was perhaps one of the hardest decisions I had to make that day! Hmm could I just have one of every thing please? 😉

img_2828

Not only are the sweets and treats cute but their packaging is super kawaii as well. The sweets box is very similar to the look of the pop-up cafe itself. The box is a “little cafe” with Hello Kitty and friends My Melody, Badtz Maru, Keroppi and Purin.

img_2848

Hmm speaking of friends, Hello Kitty’s friends were not missing at the Pop-Up Cafe because of course they were there to support their favorite Kitty friend.

I spotted everyone’s favorite roly-poly penguin, Tuxedo Sam there. He was of course dressed in his best bow tie!

img_2842

Right by the pick up window was the whole gang! Badtz Maru, Pompompurin, Chococat, Tuxedo Sam, My Melody, Keroppi and Mimi! Every one loves the Hello Kitty Cafe Pop-Up!

img_2823

Speaking of the pick up window. Hello Kitty Cafe Pop-Up’s pick up window has to be the best and cutest pick up window ever.

img_2824

It was at this super kawaii spot that I picked up all my hello kitty treats.

img_2844

One of my favorite treats from the cafe is the strawberry cake.

img_2845

The strawberry cake is a vanilla bean custard cake with butter cream and fresh strawberries. It has little hello kitty red bow ties and hello kitty faces all around. It is almost too cute to eat!

I said almost too cute 😉 hehe because one definitely needs to try this cake. The vanilla bean custard cake base is very moist. The butter cream gives just the right amount of sweetness too.

A perfect pairing to the strawberry cake is the strawberry mint lemonade.

Filled with fresh strawberries and mint, this lemonade is the perfect for those hot summer days!

The Hello Kitty Cafe Pop-Up will be at the Irvine Spectrum for a full year and I am sure to be back for more treats and sweet times in the future. This cafe simply spells out happiness. There are so many delicious treats featuring our favorite girl Hello Kitty. The whole place is just so, so special.  Cute. Happy. A dream come true. I could not help but smile from ear to ear during my visit here.

Do come visit the Hello Kitty Pop-Up Cafe and be hit with hello kitty happiness the moment you come :). Have a sweet day!

Hello Kitty Foodie at Hello Kitty’s Supercute Friendship Festival in LA!

Hello Kitty Foodie at Hello Kitty’s Supercute Friendship Festival in LA!

Just recently I got to go to the launch event of Hello Kitty’s Supercute Friendship Festival in LA!

IMG_6787

It was truly a dream come to true to be able to attend this event. I was so happy to see The Forum in Los Angeles filled with so much Hello Kitty and friends cuteness! Each and every guest definitely could say hello to their favorite Sanrio character because several characters had special little stations.

My first stop was Keroppi’s Donut Pond. Did you know Keroppi lives with his family on the edge of Donut Pond. Here at the festival, guests could visit and cross over the little bridge to Keroppi’s place, the largest and bluest pond around. I didn’t see any donuts though. Haha

IMG_6798

For foodies like myself, My Melody’s bakery was a must visit. It was filled with the sweet aroma of fresh baked cookies! My Melody is sweeter than sweet and so are the baked goods she makes!

IMG_6792

Another sweet spot was Purin’s house. Just like all of us foodies, Purin is a fan of sweet treats. I caught him in the middle of a nap and dreaming about his mama’s homemade pudding. How funny is it that the Sanrio characters are just like us!

IMG_6789

Badtz-Maru played it cool with his neat car garage! All of us foodies need some transportation to take us to the all restaurants and this penguin will make sure we get a sweet ride to get us there.

IMG_6793

I also made a wish at Little Twin Stars’ Soft Galaxy. My favorite twins Kiki and Lala’s starry starry place is so cute! I wished for more Hello Kitty events for Hello Kitty Foodie to attend!

IMG_6799

Last but not least was Hello Kitty’s house! Hmm I could not help but notice Kitty has a stocked up fridge full of kawaii sweet treats! I wonder when Kitty will invite me over so I can blog about her cooking! 😉

IMG_6750

It was so fun visiting the various places of the characters! I also got to learn more about them in the Sanrio Friendship Forest!

IMG_6788

It was also lots of fun to see them in their supercute Sanrio performances on stage! Hello Kitty and friends sure know how to put on a show. Those Sanrio characters can bust a move ;). Dear Daniel is quite the dancer! Keroppi is a great DJ! I think I should invite them to my next event!!

IMG_6797

Hello Kitty Foodie was full of smiles at Hello Kitty’s Supercute Friendship Festival in LA! I love Hello Kitty and her supercute friends!
