Hello Kitty Heaven!

25 Oct

Last week my friends and I went to the Hello Kitty Grand Cafe in Irvine, California. It was pretty, pink and perfect. It was nostalgic for me because I was obsessed with Hello Kitty as a kid. The cafe is so cute in the front when you enter. It’s super “Insta worthy” and has plenty of places to take pictures. They sell drinks, merchandise and pastries. But if you want to take it to the next level, you can make a reservation for the Bow room, which is a small room through a locked door in the back of the cafe. It is reservation only and is usually booked far in advance.  You can take a risk and walk in and hope that  someone cancels, the odds are slim so my advice would be to make a reservation online to guarantee a spot. It almost feels like a secret society and once you go in, it’s a magical Hello Kitty pink paradise! The bow room has tea service during the day ($55 per person before tax and tip). Each person is served sweet and savory bites along with a personal teapot filled with the tea of their choice. In the evening the bow room transitions into a speakeasy complete with Hello Kitty cocktails. I still need to go back for the cocktails!

If you love Hello Kitty, you must treat yourself to the Bow room.  You won’t regret it. I lost track of how many times my friends and I said “cute”. Every detail was so cute!

My friends both have amazing Youtube channels. Check them out below.

Affordable Luxury. Fine jewelry that you can afford!

23 Jul

When shopping for jewelry, two things catch my eye before anything else. Quality and price. Some quality pieces are unattainable, while some affordable pieces are lacking in quality. I’m so excited to share a jewelry company that offers affordable luxury. YES, you read that right. Ethically sourced gold, diamond and pearl jewelry that is fairly priced. Let me introduce you to AUrate .AUrate necklace

I have yet to see a company this transparent when it comes to pricing and the designs are so beautiful, you’re going to want everything.  If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know dainty jewelry is my thing.  The AUrate website is dainty jewelry heaven.  As if that wasn’t enough, with every purchase, AUrate donates a book to a child in need.

The Perfect Summer Scent!

27 May

I only wear a handful of perfumes and I love them all so much that I rarely add any additions to my collection. But 3 years ago I discovered Pirette at my local surf shop. The sales girl suggested that I try it and I said yes just to be nice- I expected that it would smell decent but not AMAZING! How could this random fragrance oil from a surf shop smell so good?!! I don’t know what’s in this tiny bottle but WOW, it’s one of the most beautiful scents that I’ve smelled. I get so many compliments on the fresh, beachy, coconut perfume that I had to share it here on the blog. I’ve been wearing it more since Spring has sprung and will continue to wear it through Summer. I cannot get enough of it.  pirette

*Be warned…. the bottle is tiny, but I’m on my second bottle now and the first one lasted almost 2 years. A little bit goes a long way.

*Also, as I was writing this post, I discovered that they make candles too!!!!
