Hello Kitty Birthday Party Decorations at Party Bazaar

I forgot about these pics I took at Party Bazaar way back in June (getting stuff for my son’s birthday party). Basically, Party Bazaar is a store dedicated to party supplies whether it’s birthdays, a Hula party or some other party. They’re located right by the Main Street Skytrain Station.  Anyways, while I was there I discovered they have a Hello Kitty birthday party section. Here’s what I saw (prices are pretty reasonable there by the way!):

Hello Kitty Luggage

So many times people have asked me where can I find Hello Kitty luggage. Well, I was at a Sanrio Store in Alderwood Mall (Lynnwood, WA) and found some perfectly cute pieces.

I went photo crazy while I was at Sephora at Pacific Centre Mall (downtown Vancouver) because they had the most adorable Hello Kitty stand full of Hello Kitty make-up, nail polish, bags and more!

Hello Kitty Cell Phone Covers at Lonsdale Quay

I was at Lonsdale Quay (if you’re visiting Vancouver, just take the seabus from Waterfront Centre and you’re there) when I found a great little stand selling cell phone covers. Well, I happen to need one bad for my phone. I’m sure other mommies will understand how often one’s phone crashes to the ground when they’re playing with their kids.  Anyways…there’s a great little shop called Cell Spot Wireless and they had tons of Hello Kitty covers. Here are a few pics:

I think I saw at least 20 Hello Kitty covers for iPhones and iTouches. A really good variety if you’re looking for a Hello Kitty cell phone cover.

UPDATE Jan. 25, 2012: Sorry, they don’t have these particular cell phone covers anymore. The owner contacted me as it seems lots of people have been asking about them.

Hello Kitty Fashion Magazine Launch

Some exciting news in the world of Hello Kitty! A new UK magazine just launched this month called Hello Kitty Fashion Magazine. Right on the cover is Lady Gaga in all her avant garde glory with a huge Hello Kitty bow in her hair:

Here’s a description I received from the magazine of what they’re all about:

Hello Kitty’s got style, originality and attitude and she’s bringing it all to her latest magazine. Hello Kitty Fashion is a quarterly 80 page publication, which will hit newsstands in the UK in July. The magazine, which is aimed predominantly at teenage girls and the older Hello Kitty fan, aims to bring it’s readers a fresh and exciting take on the teenage glossy mag. Hello Kitty Fashion is bursting with cool content, including top tips on how to create different Harajuku styles, an exclusive interview with Yuko Yamaguchi (Head designer at Hello Kitty HQ), loads of fab fashion and beauty tips and tons of cool Hello Kitty related content.

I’m also excited to mention that myself plus some other Hello Kitty fans from around the world were featured in their “Crazy About Kitty!” article. Here are some pics of the inside of the magazine:

Here’s the beginning of the article I was in:

I remember taking the picture.  I was trying to get my husband to wake up and take it for me, but he wouldn’t budge so I had to put the camera on a chair and use the timer. Glad it worked out ok!

So, if there are any Hello Kitty fans out there who get their hands on the magazine, I’d love to hear what you thought of it.

Hello Kitty Wine

I got a great surprise in my email from Whitney who wrote:

Hey Emily!!

I am in LOVE with HK! Just this past weekend, the girls and I went out for a night on the town. As you can imagine, finding HK WINE made for a fabulous night! It was the absolute cutest thing. There are four different wines, “Angel” White Wine, “Devil” Red Wine, Sweet Pink and Brut Rose Champagne. I had never seen them before and had to stock up, they were moderately priced and surprisingly tasty. The images of Hello Kitty on the wine labels were just adorable. She is so sassy!

Here’s the photo:

So, I did some more research as I’m sure many of you Kitty fans might want to get your hands on this wine. I found them available from Wine from the Boot priced from $18.99 to $30.99.

The wine was a collaboration between Italian winemaker Tenimenti Castelrotto and Italian fashion company Camomilla. They thought Hello Kitty would be perfect for the wine industry because of her popular brand recognition and because so many women who loved her as a child have grown up and may want more mature products. The tagline for the wine products is actually:  “Our favourite girl has grown up.”

Personally, I suspect a lot of women will try this out especially at girls night out wine tasting events, bachelorette parties and bridal showers. And, I suspect some of you reading this are already itching to get your hands on the cute pendant dangling off the bottle. 😉

Here’s a picture of the other 2 wine options:
