Swarovski Crystal Dipped Hello Kitty Mirror

Last year I bought this mirror from Sephora:

Today I went on the Sephora website and discovered that they’ve since added this:

The same mirror. Covered in hundreds of pink Swarovski crystals, and packed in a black velveteen pouch and a jewel box so you can keep your pretty jeweled Hello Kitty mirror safe. All for just $350USD, a mere ten times the cost of the original mirror! Why, Sephora, do you do these things to me?? But wait-

Last year I also bought this Hello Kitty brush set:

And guess what? Yup, this happened:

Hundreds more pink Swarovskis, and at $495USD the blinged-up brush set is also 10x the price of the original, un-blinged up version. Seriously, why was I born an Asian girl with a love for all things Hello Kitty? Hello Kitty and shiny, now this is just unfair – why am I supposed to resist these?? Maybe if I hadn’t just dropped about 500USD today on one of those Miu Miu bag charms I wrote about 3 months ago (I bought the pink one!!), I might feel less guilty about blowing another couple hundred on shiny Hello Kitty things? Oh God, I’m hopeless. I think I’m going to drool at these blinged-up pictures for a bit more, moan a bit to myself and then go out tomorrow and buy a bajillion crystals so I can bling up my mirror and brush set myself. While I’m at it I’ll probably bling up my phone, and maybe my camera too…

Hello Kitty Crocs

Oh no. The instant I saw these shoes I felt my heart sink, because I absolutely love Hello Kitty, but… but… but… these are Crocs, and I absolutely hate Crocs, and it feels like my love for Hello Kitty is being tested against my hate for Crocs, to see which I love/hate more. I mean, these don’t even look that much like Crocs! Sure they’re rubbery, but rubber flats have been SO in fashion lately! And they’re black, and black matches everything, and that pink rubber bow is actually pretty cute. But wait-

The back looks a bit… childish, doesn’t it? A wee bit twee? But if I didn’t like childish things I wouldn’t be looking at Hello Kitty shoes now would I? Look look, these have Hello Kitty’s face on them!!

And see, they look quite alright with black tights now don’t they? In a, they don’t look that bad from a distance kind of way? I’m SO confused right now. If I buy these, is that proof of my love for all things Hello Kitty? Or am I just buying the most well-disguised Crocs in the universe? Either way I think I lose. If you want a pair though, these are currently £14.99 at  50% off and you can buy them from Schuh.

The HELLO KITTY COLLECTION is back in stock on Sephora!! The collection sold ridiculously well during the limited VIB private sale I wrote about last month, and now the whole collection is back! It looks like in addition to restocking everything, Sephora has added some new items like oil blotters and even a Hello Kitty Solid Perfume necklace!

Some of the items in the HK collection:

Hello Kitty Sephora Private Event


I just got this in my email today! Sephora is having a 2-day only, online preview sale of the HELLO KITTY collection!! I already want the Brush set, apple lip balm and fragrance. And the nail stickers are really cute too. I thought I’d bought enough from Sephora after the FF Sale, then the VIB Sale, then the Holiday giftcards. Now this? It’s like Sephora is out to get all my money or something…

Some product pictures:

Hello Kitty Brush Set, the brushes are all pink-tipped and fit into the HK tin! Retails for $49.

Hello Kitty fragrance in the cutest spray bottle *-*

Apple pot lip balm, the color payoff is supposed to be as good as a lipstick but we’ll see! The cute apple pot and HK logo are enough to make me buy this though. But then again, you could put Hello Kitty’s face on a bottle of water and I’d probably buy it, so…

The collection launches officially in-stores and online in mid-January, and I have a feeling everything will sell out quick!
