Hello Kitty 2010 Black Friday Sale, Part 2

posted by:

I <3 Black Friday shopping! You never know what kind of surprises you will find. This year I didn’t really get a chance to do an all day shopping, since I was in a rush to travel back to Los Angeles from San Francisco. But I did manage to squeeze a couple hour before departing. Luckily, my boyfriend was able to take me to San Francisco Centre Shopping Mall to visit one of my three favorite Sanrio Boutique Stores :]

For some reason, my first stop was actually Hot Topic instead of Sanrio. I bet you want to know why, I saw this very attracting sign,

“TODAY ONLY! Buy a special edition $9.50 hello Kitty tee and get a FREE Lady Gaga Poster!”

Hello Kitty x Lady Gaga T-Shirt

Hello Kitty x Sanrio 50th Anniversary Design Your Own Gift Card

Hello Kitty T-Shirts and Accessories at Hot Topic

This is one of my favorite ones <33

After being in Hot Topic for a good 5-10 minutes…I rushed to Sanrio, there wasn’t a big crowd yet. But I had already found myself being very indecisive as usual. I was making my way around the store until I saw something very unusual, I feel in love <3 I have an obsession with Hello Kitty appliances and guess what I saw?

Hello Kitty Hair Irons! I have done a lot of research and obviously Japan already sells Hello Kitty hair iron, but I never knew they sold them in the states.

I haven’t gotten a chance to play with it yet, but I will definitely let you guys know how good the product works! For those of you who are interested in buying it, you can also buy them at or visit one of your local Sanrio Boutique Stores <3 Good Luck!

Guess what’s going to be displayed? Sanrio’s 50th Special Products <333 I’m absolutely loving it! The truck is simply amazing, what could be better than a customize Sanrio’s 50th Anniversary wrap on the truck, right?

Only 8 days left until Sanrio’s 50th anniversary and Sanrio have already collaborated with many brands. One of the many collaboration is Demeter Fragrance Library. Sanrio has teamed up with Demeter Fragrance Library to create, “The Sanrio Anniversary Collection“. This collection will be featuring different scents relating to the many Sanrio characters: Hello Kitty, My Melody and The Little Twin Stars are the first to be featured in the market back in June. You can officially pick yours up online or at your local Sanrio store or Demeter Fragrance Library’s official website.

I personally don’t usually wear perfume, but when it comes to Hello Kitty, I just had to run out to the store and get one:] They come in 4 different sizes, 1/2 oz purse spray, 1/2 oz cologne splash, 1 oz and 4 oz cologne spray and prices start at only $6 USD. That’s super cheap for perfumes <3 and the Hello Kitty ones smells like heaven with apples!

Which one is your favorite Hello Kitty x Demeter Fragrance Library in “The Sanrio Anniversary Collection”?
