Kitty-lujah! Small Gift is finally in LA! And guess who got to go to the preview night on Thursday before it officially opened to the public!? n___n My friends and I had happy kawaii crazy fun! I was very overwhelmed with all the kawaii elements AND Sanrio did an *AMAZING* job with this event! I could have very easily cried but I didn’t want to freak out my non-Hello Kitty friends that I invited (Dani and Kurt).
I wanted to share some pix with my Junkies who may not be able to make it out to California… Hope you enjoy:
Sanrio events always have a line… It’s kind of an expected thing!
A celeb sighting! Hmmm… I am just not sure who he is!? o__O Can someone please help me out!
Kawaii balloons of Sanrio characters hanging from the ceiling! @____@

Don’t mind me — just stepping into the Hello Kitty x Smart Car! n_~

So much cute fun… Almost unbearable! n___n
However, the *best* and most *amazing* thing about Thursday night was the fact that I got to share the experience with my friends… Including friends I made during Three Apples last year… Hello Kitty Junkies I have known throughout the years… New friends like Kelly from Sephora and Cicely Margo *super fab* Jewelry Designer who gave me a present (which I immediately put on)… Dani and Kurt (my non-Hello Kitty guy friends who support and encourage my obsession)… And Celina and Vanessa pictured below (known them for at least a decade each)…
Small Gift… Big Smile! I am incredibly lucky! *sigh*
