Hello Kitty Perfume Body Mist

Lazy Sunday afternoon in with the boyfriend, we headed to the supermarket to pick up some hotdogs. We had the hotdogs, the bread, some chips to snack on but I insisted on checking out the health & beauty aisle, seeing as supermarkets are often far cheaper when it comes to those products.

Anyway we entered the aisle, I was looking down and to my surprise, spotted this in the deodorant/body spray section:

Hello Kitty perfume body mist!

*happy happy*

Priced at $4.95 each at Coles, I picked up two since I was in a super excited "OMG THEY SELL HELLO KITTY BODY SPRAY" mood. Plus RIGHT before we headed out, the boyfriend asked if I had any spray .. I said no, since all I have is perfume.

Anyway it smells like BUBBLEGUM! It's so adorable and sweet-smelling. The back of the can reads:

"A sweet bubblegum treat for all girls naughty and nice"

LOL at the 'naughty and nice' bit .. suss. As you can see, the bottle isn't the prettiest, I'm not the biggest fan of it. Still, anything Hello Kitty is adorable to me :)

P.S. Now I can't afford food until Wednesday, LOL =_= That was my last $10 in my bank account (well, the one I can use as I have another for my 'savings') and I spent it on Hello Kitty body spray. Mm .. money well spent? I think so! :)

Current Wishlist

Short haitus? Eh, assignments are handed up, I'm not using the term 'finished' because they're not. Sitting back and HOPING I pass :(

Anyway to kill stress .. online hunting!


1. Hello Kitty x Tokidoki charm bracelet
Okay so the boyfriend got me a bracelet for my birthday. I'm not complaining but the material it was made out of (stainless steel perhaps? not sure) kept 'stretching' so a lot of the time I couldn't lock it together (it's a heart-locket kinda thing). Which meant it could easily fall somewhere while I was wearing it. PLUS a lot of people had the bracelet, it was from a fairly well-known store =/ So, he offered to get me another one and during my many hours of forcing him to sit with me while I shop for Hello Kitty, I came across this:

YAYYYYYY! The seller is from Japan. Plus I'm almost certain this is authentic. Why? No one has bothered to fake the Tokidoki x Hello Kitty range. Hence everything on eBay is overpriced, like the actual online stores themself, $30 for a pen haha. And look at how well some people take care of their items, there's a Tokidoki x Hello Kitty bag on ebay for US$650 'never removed from factory wrapping'. Yes, it's still in plastic .. they didn't even take it out to take a photo of it, it's all sealed and everything. Like wow =S But the bracelet should be in the mail to me soon =D!

2. Hello Kitty x Tokidoki CACTUS PLUSH TOY!
I've been eyeing this since the collection came out .. a while ago. It's Hello Kitty. As a CACTUS. How much freakin' cuter can you get?! Something about it screams UBER CUTE and I've always wanted it, and you know what I figured last night? My car is green. That's about the only thing that I'm willing to stick in there to match my car colour AND the inside stuff, which is all pink. A Hello Kitty cactus hanging from the review mirror = WIN!

Roughly AU$40 with free postage. However, you can get a cactus AND a donut for around US$71, which yeah should be roughly AU$80 for the pair.

Shall order it when I come back from more interstate tripping during July :) Seeing as it's not really a 'need' right now, as I'm not driving .. yet. But the next item is a need ..

3. Hello Kitty hoodie
Mm winter :( I looked around for brands such as Superdry and G-Star hoodies but didn't find anything I was really into .. I'm not big on brands anyway. But did come across THIS which is so so cute! Reminds me a bit of 'beckii cruel' (youtube her), but I'm not willing to fork out the AU$120-$130 for it :(

Aww look it has little ears and a bow! =D

Kinda half-decided on this next hoodie though, I like the pattern on it:

Around AU$60, much more affordable :) I mean I'm paying double for the ears + bow, when I already have a Hello Kitty hat lol. Mm ..

Haitus + rambling

Mm I know I barely update this anyway :( I have so many drafts saved but yeah, I'm so lazy .. actually I'm procrastinating as I'm typing this up -- 3 major assignments due next week! While everyone else is on SWOTVAC for uni. But I only have one exam, hah!

ATTEMPTING to take a break from my online life. Well I started with the shopping, chucked all my money into my second bank account and within the hour, ended up Paypal-ing a skirt with my first one -- fail. Thought about deactivating Facebook etc, might do that soon :(

I spent a good hour yesterday at uni browsing through the official Sanrio online store, why oh why do they only ship to US/Canada/Japan?! I found a seller on eBay located in Japan who buys directly from the Sanrio store apparently, but it's way overpriced. But .. SANRIO STORE IN SYDNEY! YAY! That's not Gift Gate! I first came across Gift Gate in the Philippines in 2001, stocked up on heaps of goodies. When I went back in 2007, the place had majorly downsized. Disappointed :( Gift Gate is also located in Chinatown in Melbourne/Sydney but I actually hate how overpriced everything is, if you're in Sydney you might as well walk down 200m to Market City. Oh but heads up from Danny in my previous blog, $2.50 store in Sydney! Which I looked up and is about a 2-minute walk from my hotel =D Link is here -- click click! I actually have so much more motivation to save for Sydney because of that LOL, shall be living in that store every day!

Anyway, photo spam you say? These are all already on my computer. I took these for a magazine assignment a few weeks back, obviously chose Hello Kitty as my topic because I'll be more likely to complete the assignment if it's something I'm interested in :) Oh and for the 'own photos' bit .. I mean, I just took photos of all my stuff LOL EASY!

My Nintendo DS + Accessories: I probably should've gotten a photo of the outside of the DS too, nothing flash but I have a white Hello Kitty hard case over it. The inside bit are just stickers, the colour blends in well with my DS hey? :) Got Hello Kitty: Big City Dreams from my friend for my 18th, poor girl said she was embarrassed buying it because the guy thought it was for her. She said it was for a friend and he didn't believe her LOL.

My laptop accessories: Went all out for my new laptop, it's pink! Laptop bag from eBay for around $14, the vacuum and keyboard duster + cloth were $1.50 each on eBay, mouse from eBay, foldable rubber keyboard $22.50 from Market City in Sydney, speakers from the ex and 4gb USB from a friend :)

MAC x Hello Kitty collection: I can guarantee that the eyeshadow ($90, David Jones) and possibly the shopper tote bag ($40, online) are authentic. Yes, $40 for a thin bag .. sigh. Bought it within the week the collection was released, it went down to like $10 on eBay after a few months. I intended to only purchase the bag from the collection, there was no way I could afford the whole thing, note that the majority of the items pictured are FAKE. Why? The two black tubes are mascara + eyeliner: $16 for both off eBay, MAC never released any mascara/eyeliner with the collection. Same with the concealer, $10 from Paddy's Markets in Sydney LOL obviously fake. Two of the lipglass pictured are POSSIBLY authentic, I purchased two for about $12 each then another 2 after for .. like $3 each? HAHA plus the tubes are noticeably a different sized compared to the earlier ones I bought, which were from a seller in Australia - the second ones were from Hong Kong. BUT - the box/packaging looks identical, looks so authentic *however* MAC only released 6 shades of lipglass for the collection. I have 4 different ones, I remember there's a clear and a purple one, so the 4 I have may be the remaining colours? *shrug* I know for sure 2 definitely are. Despite the fact that half of these are fake, they're so cute for carrying around :) I carry all my lipglass in its .. 2 boxes. The fake items (eyeliner, mascara, concealer) are all pretty dodgy but eh, looks cute just sitting there :)

"The Assignment" -- had to get it professionally printed, cost me $33. And I got a Credit. SERIOUSLYYY I think it deserves at least a distinction. Some of my best work, pffttt :(

ANYWAY shall return later. After exams and stuff. Probably 3-4 weeks. WITH an actual blog about products. I need to purchase Hello Kitty contact lens cases from FocalPrice, still waiting on my contacts to come in *twiddles thumbs*

Bye :) xx
