Ok, so this is just a snippet of my Hello Kitty collection. Yep; a snippet of my collection. Bit crazy eh? but super duper cute. Love it all.
Saw my bag, cake box and cup in my kitchen just now and was reminiscing on my trip to the Hello Kitty Cafe at the Irvine Spectrum Centre CA last year. I know my fiance wasn’t as impressed with the place as I was lol but he was good enough to take me there as he knows how I LOVE Hello Kitty. Will post some of my crazy collection… show you how really Sanrio crazy I am.
My best friend Emma introduced me to Hello Kitty when we worked in Japan years ago as professional Dancers. So, over the years the Hello Kitty collection has grown and trying my best to get some Moomin things in there too. So, I think i can blame her for this madness lol.
Anyway, I totally recommend a trip to the Irvine Spectrum Centre (fantastic place to shop and eat) https://www.irvinespectrumcenter.com/. On the way back from Disney (hence the ears!) we popped into the Hello Kitty Cafe and it was amaaaaaazing! I almost didnt want to drink my coffee and spoil the HK face on the top and the cake… I cant believe I even bit into this, it was too cute to eat – but it was GOOD! And to top this the cake came in the cutest box and a bag; which I still have and as I said I spotted it in my Kitchen and spurred me to write about it right now. Cant wait to go back here again.
Beautiful Spain… These pictures were taken with my Olympus Pen E-PL8; not had this too long but I already LOVE it. This is actually the first time I have visited Costa Blanca. My parents live in Spain so I’m very lucky to get the opportunity to visit Alicante, Santa Pola, Cartagena and su So many amazing places to visit in Spain. After visiting Costa Del Sol for so many years it was interesting to see another part of Spain. I even visited Benidorm and absolutely recommend going to see a Show at ‘Benidorm Palace’; the new Aqua Show was amazing, I used to be a professional Dancer and appreciate watching a great Show.
I also love to shop! Spain has my favourite shops; the styles and bright colours are so different to what I see in UK. I love everything about the Spanish shopping experience. La Zenia was a new experience for me and loved it, not only does it have an incredible selection of shops, restaurants, cafe’s etc. Desigual is one of my favourite places to shop, Zara, Bershka, Oysho, Womens Secret, Stradivarius, Pull & Bear…. I miss these stores in UK. Ok, we get Zara but its not as good as in Spain. I also got to visit the Guess shop and no end of Shoe shops – my idea of a dream day out. La Zenia is my new favourite place to shop.
Super Excited to be heading back to Spain. Its not just about Sunshine and Suntans, its MUCH more than that. The Culture; amazing food, architecture, climate, lifestyle, shopping; oh my goodness the list is endless! What’s not to love eh. And I absolutely love to see the Palm Trees against the blue sky.
