While pulling another all nighter and watching tv Hello Kitty and NFL Chargers player Antonio Garay were featured on Morning Express with Robin Meade and it was all about his Hello Kitty Smart Car. Smart move! Hello Kitty is really getting around lately and trying to convert the unconvertible. I'm sure she will slap her face on one in no time.

Pynkiss just released a press release on their brand new Hello Kitty line. I'm lining up in my mind to purchase these items. I sure hope they come out with their own Hello Kitty plush doll because I could stand in line for days just for Hello Kitty plushes.

HELLO KITTY GETS ITS FIRST EVER ITALIAN HIGH-END FASHION BRAND WITH THE LAUNCH OF PYNKISS SPRING/SUMMER 2012 COLLECTION
23rd September 2011, Milan. Over the years Hello Kitty’s style has flourished and matured into a global brand with avid followers all over the world. Now, Hello Kitty has a stylish new look – Pynkiss.
Designed in Milan by top Italian designers this high-end collection exudes sophistication, is contemporary and bold, stylish and cheeky, new and exciting, yet still authentically Hello Kitty. This is a true designer collection and is aimed at those looking for quality, along with cutting edge design and high class fashion. Pynkiss is designed for the fashion and quality conscious, from babies to teens and on to mums – a total look for all generations!
Pynkiss will launch during Milan Fashion week 2011, with a collection of over 200 head turning designs, many of which will be finely appliquéd with crystals, beads and sequins and hand- stitched and finished in Milan. The Pynkiss design team created a variety of looks and versatile collections to suit all tastes, ages and styles; regardless of age, no matter what your mood, wherever you may be and whatever you are doing.
The Spring/Summer 2012 collection’s main theme is inspired by the soft tones of the world famous Italian ice cream, while creating the epitome of all cool things by mixing fruity colours and pastel shades. This coupled with the use of soft and comfortable fabrics featuring feminine and exquisite patterns, adds to the uniqueness of the collection. Every garment is a like a piece of jewellery, embellished with rhinestones and precious, hand-stitched details for a vibrant and shimmering look. All the designs are hand-drawn to give the Pynkiss collection its own unique and inimitable style and its colours and detailed appliqué is set to become a staple in any fashionista’s wardrobe over the coming months. Further inspiration has been provided by the colours of the Italian Rivera, seaside villages and Paris’ iconic Moulin Rouge. Key pieces in the adult range with cost between €100 (£95 UK or $150 USD) to €200 ( £190 UK or $300 USD), with T-shirts starting off at €30 (£28UK or $45 USD).
Pynkiss’ design studios are located in the very heart of Milan and the design team is made up of a creative and skilled group of people with diverse backgrounds, from stylists to graphic designers. The design team is lead by Monica Ricci, who has previously specialised in fashion accessories and over the years has honed her skills as a seasoned designer at many recognised designer labels, from the high street to high fashion, including: Cartorama, Panini, Gut, Refrigue, MBC, Patrizia Pepe and Sanrio.
The Pynkiss collections will be unveiled as soon as its first 10 stores open in January 2012 across the Middle East and Asia Pacific. Concessions will be at leading global department stores and retails including, but not limited to: Bloomingdales, Galeries Lafayette, and high end independent retailers around the world.
As the seasons evolve, so will Pynkiss with the addition of accessories, bags and limited edition exclusive pieces; so regardless of age, no matter what your mood, wherever you maybe and whatever you are doing, you’ll find it all at Pynkiss – For All your Pynkiss life.
Look what the cat dragged in.. to my house! Another Hello Kitty Sanrio store sign that almost went into the trash. I felt really bad taking out the trash and seeing this sign with the garbage that I had to take it home.
This guy thought the sign was for him and decided to try it out on the road. Wrong road but at least he's got the right sign and idea.

As a Sanrio employee I'm still jealous of other Sanrio employees in Japan who work for headquarters especially when they have a product exhibition and feature wedding reception toilet paper with Hello Kitty and her so called boyfriend Dear Daniel that are supposed to be given out to guests. I don't think Dear Daniel treats Hello Kitty very well and I feel toilet paper is a perfect fit for him because he seems to be full of...
I would love to work for Sanrio in Japan. In fact I would love to just be in Japan..period.

"This fragrance is part of the alluring Noir collection, which evokes a sense of cinematic romance. Captivating vintage designs and dramatic looks will have you hypnotized and wanting more."
This is by far my favorite line from Sephora. I always knew Hello Kitty was a movie star. Hopefully she doesn't. We don't want another diva in Hollywood.

I don't know why I always look for Hello Kitty in random catalogs. Maybe because I'm obsessed with her. Anyway it's finally paid off. I recieved a catalog from a new company called Bronner's that features Christmas stuff and there's my litte Hello Kitty on page 22. The description says Hello Kitty "will charm the heart of your little princess". No offense but she's charmed the heart of a Queen. Queen of the jungle that is.
There's even more of the GREAT Hello Kitty online! What a great CATalog!
