tokidoki x Hello Kitty Frenzies!

I am so in love whenever there is a tokidoki x Hello Kitty collaboration product that comes out — I always know it’s going to be supercute! This month, the tokidoki x Hello Kitty Frenzies have arrived and they are pretty freakin’ adorable! These cuties are blind boxed so each one you collect is a surprise. The nice part about blind boxed items are that if you get doubles, you can either keep the twins together, share one with a friend, or hold on to it until you find someone who can trade. =^_^=

Each character comes with a small lobster clasp, 6 cm strap and a Phonezie attachment. The way I use these are for display or hang them from my bag (unless I’m at a convention — I will add a couple on my lanyard). There are 20 charming characters in all! Chasers are the following: Diamond (1 in 150), Robot (1 in 75), and Clouds (1 in 75).

Enough writing… Check out images of the beautiful packaging + über adorable Frenzies! Let me know which ones are your faves!

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Tick Tock Products Review

I was gifted some lovely products from the Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Tick Tock collection! In my kittilicious collection are: Paci Pod, Be Quick and B.F.F. This collection is supercute! I like the bags better in person than in the product photos can you can really feel how lovely the fabric is, how sturdy the hardware is… And just see the cuteness to the max!

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

Detail of the hang tag…

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

Paci Pod! Kawaii, neh? I do not have a baby, so I cannot use this for pacifiers yet! I do like that you can loop this around one of the handles/straps of a larger size bag.

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

Hardware detail… Kitty-chan’s face engraved in the star and the one little crystal on the bottom right are a couple of cute detail that adds a lot of extra cuteness! The print quality on the fabric is also clean and crisp.

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

Inside of the paci pod has the beautiful blue lining — and look at the zipper pull! ^_^

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

Here is the Be Quick. The more I stare at this pattern, the more I love it! This pattern and colorway gives me a nostalgic feeling. =^_^=

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

The Be Quick features a clip-on strap for use as a wristlet or to attach to a bag (or stroller for my Mommies).

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

Nice embroidered Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty logo patch.

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

And there is that metal hardware again!

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

Love this pattern! Also, because the pattern is using a dark blue instead of black on the outlines, it makes the design a bit softer, even with the heavy use of red.

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

The inside lining has an outline of three red apples embroidered into the pocket! Three apples to represent how much Kitty weighs… Yup, Hello Kitty weighs three apples just in case you were wondering!!!

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

The stitching on the bags are awesome — high quality here. I also like the quality of the zipper a lot — it doesn’t get stuck.

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

Here are some fun features of Ju-Ju-Be products:

  • Teflon fabric protector — so stains don’t stick
  • Antimicrobial linings — inhibits and reduces surface growth of fungus, bacteria, mold and mildew…
  • Custom metal hardware — strong and sturdy
  • Light colored linings — you can see what’s inside
  • Machine washable — air dry
  • PVC free

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

It also has Agion Active, which is a built-in technology that provides a strong shield of confidence as you go about your day. So fresh and so clean!

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

Here is the B.F.F. — this bag is awesome! I love all the compartments this bag features. But my favorite thing about this bag is that it is so versatile — you can wear it as a backpack, shoulder bag, crossbody or just carry it by the top handle.

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

It’s pretty roomy so you can fit lots of things…

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

The straps are padded so carrying this as a backpack is nice and comfy.

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

Detail of embroidered detail on the straps…

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

More strong and sturdy hardware on the shoulder strap…

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

My other favorite thing about this bag is the shoulder strap area!! The straps hook into Hello Kitty’s iconic bow! How perrr-fect is that!? I super adore this detail! I would have to say this detail + the versatility of this style makes B.F.F. my absolute fave style of bag from Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty collection.

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

Here is where the straps hook into on the top…

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

Side compartments — I’ve used this to hold a water bottle and other small things. Very convenient for when you need quick and easy access. I also learned that these two exterior insulated pockets are for bottles… with Thinsulate by 3M — which is able to keep the bottle warm or cold. Pretty neat-o!

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

So many pockets! So many kittilicious trims! =^_^=

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

Front pocket holds keys (stretch key fob) and sunglasses (cleans lenses too!) with plenty of room for more!

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

I think this is the quick reach pocket for cell phone.

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

Inside organization includes four gusseted pockets, three zippered pockets & lots of wide open space!

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

For the Momma Junkies out there, there are also two picture pockets to keep photos handy when bragging to friends.

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

Close up detail of the overall quality that went into making the Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty product. The fabric feels strong and durable — and the hardware feels the same.

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

A changing pad also comes equipped with the B.F.F.

Ju-Ju-Be for Hello Kitty Collaboration Reviw

Here is the blue lining with subtle Hello Kitty detail…

What a supercute collection! I am excited to see more! =^_^=

The Hungry Hunt Is On!

When Jaycee told me about Hello Kitty Reading Day, I thought, “How fun!” I invited Jordan to hang out at the Beverly Hills library so we could participate in the Hello Kitty Reading Day and then go on the Hello Kitty Hungry Hunt in the Sawtelle area.

But then Hello Kitty Hungry Hunt started on Friday — I was following along Theresa, her collection of pins and the #hellokittyhungryhunt on Instagram! And it made me want to have to collect the pins too! =^_^=

My friends and I met up at Lollicup in Sawtelle at 11:30am! The cashier was super nice and the pin is cute.

Hello Kitty Hungry Hunt Lollicup Sawtelle

We were able to order our Strawberry smoothie and collect our first pin for $5! The bad part was… the smoothie took about 45 minutes to one hour to get — long long loooong line! x__X And they ran out of strawberry flavor and strawberries… So we got mango flavor. :/

Hello Kitty Hungry Hunt Lollicup Sawtelle

While we were waiting for our Lollicup order, we waited for our ramen pin at Daikokuya right next door. The line was long — but this is no surprise — their ramen is my fave! This was actually the best experience for me since we had time to sit down as a group — JoradnJaycee, Jen and I. We talked about how excited we all were for Hello Kitty Con and what we were planning to wear and other Hello Kitty things!

Hello Kitty Hungry Hunt Daikokuya Sawtelle

There were three choices of ramen you could order from the menu. I got spicy ramen! 😛 The total for the ramen meal + pin was about $17 with tax + tip.

Hello Kitty Hungry Hunt Daikokuya Sawtelle

Here is a detail of my seaweed with Hello Kitty’s face stamped out.

Hello Kitty Hungry Hunt Daikokuya Sawtelle

I was SO happy with my two pins I collected! ^___^

Hello Kitty Hungry Hunt Lollicup and Daikokuya Pins

After ramen, we headed to the Beverly Hills library for Hello Kitty Reading Day… Unfortunately, there wasn’t much going on there. We were able to get a couple of Hello Kitty crowns — but that was it. T____T

So what did we do next? To Dylan’s Candy Bar! I was already stuffed but we were a little disappointed about the non-Hello Kitty activities at the library… And since we were in the Hello Kitty Hungry Hunt pin collecting mood…

Hello Kitty Hungry Hunt Dylan's Candy Bar at The Grove

We all ordered the special Hello Kitty sundae, which was $15. The ice cream flavors I chose were mint chip and cookie monster (the blue one with cookies in it)… I was overloaded with sweetness.

We also checked out the collaboration products between Hello Kitty and Dylan’s Candy Bar.

Official Hotel of Hello Kitty Con 2014: The Line Hotel

Hello Kitty x The Line Hotel

This is super duper exciting news! Sanrio is partnering up with The Line Hotel so that Hello Kitty Con-goers have a supercute and kittilicious place to stay while in LA. There is also a special VIP party for Kitty-chan herself at the hotel lounge area. I hope I get an invite so I can report back to my Junkies! *cross fingers*

Oh! For the lucky Junkies who get to stay in a Hello Kitty room, you will also get to take home some kittitastic goodies, like the robes, slippers, cushions and more! I wonder what else will be available. I wonder how it will be designed! Guests who stay also get to order room service and have SPAM Musubi made by chef Roy Choi. Btw, it’s not just ANY musubi — it will be a very special Hello Kitty one! Looks like the Hello Kitty rooms are already available. During the convention, the rooms run about $230/night for a king to around $500/night for a suite. =^_^=

About The Line
The Line is a new Los Angeles hotel collaboration from the Sydell Group (of the NoMad Hotel in New York) that opened January 1, 2014 in Koreatown. The mid-century building, originally built in 1964, has been restored, and fully renovated with re-imagined public spaces and guest rooms designed by Sean Knibb. The hotel is the first to draw inspiration from the distinct Korean culture of its surrounding neighborhood and includes two restaurants by Koreatown’s own Roy Choi (celebrated chef behind Kogi, Chego and A-Frame), nightlife by the Houston Brothers (the duo responsible for prominent LA lounges such as La Descarga and Harvard & Stone), noted art and design shop Poketo, and amenities including a coffee shop and pool. http://www.thelinehotel.com
