The wonderful world of Hello Kitty X

So if you have been hiding under a rock the past year (or dare I say it, not a Hello Kitty fan) you may of missed some of the amazing Hello Kitty collabs!

Really we need to go back to just before the end of 2017 when it kicked off. This was of course ASOS’s first collection with the purrfect Miss Kitty herself!

The first array was more geared to Christmas and party wear, the prices ranging from £5 to £95. There was some amazing buys, but the downside to me was the amount of Dabbing Hello Kitty’s. I do not buy into this fad, thank you! Though I did purchase some of the jewellery and handbags. The hoop earrings were my all time favourite, and the most amazing handbags, I purchased both the white fluffy crossover and the very similar Charlotte Olympia Olympia style black backpack.

We then of course had the the big hype of PumaXHelloKitty which celebrated the more classic OG style. Red and white, classic and clean! This connection was HOT, and sold out pretty quickly. To be honest I didn’t even think I’d get a pair in the UK, but thankfully Schuh had my back and I got my precious pair! Now these were expensive to me £80 for a pair of trainers is not a lot to some people, but to me they were A LOT! Though they were worth every penny for the cuteness factor!

When Summer came it was time for ASOS to bring a new selection of goodies. This had 90s vibes and quirky girly feels. I found the collection a little bit too young for me, but the bow heels and ankle socks were my prize wear of the summer. The shoes in particular stole the show at a summer party!

Now the latest and most hyped so far has to go to ConverseXHelloKitty. This range had a huge selection of colours and styles, even including clothes. This one, I had to be held back on a bit! 3 pairs of shoes and a t shirt later, I was one happy Kitty!

The collection was so popular, styles sold out in a day and I had to wait a while to get them via Converse. Though when they came, they were stunning, so beautiful in fact I still haven’t dared wear them yet!

There have also been some extremely high end collections what have happened with the likes of Furla, Pinko and Chinti and Parker, which I have loved, but are way out of my price range!

What is next for the Hello Kitty collabs?! I would like to see more UK brands bring back the Kitty Queen, especially clothing in plus size. We miss out on lots of cool brands in the UK like Loungefly, who do some amazing Hello Kitty accessories, but don’t stock in the UK. Sanrio themselves do not have a UK site. So hopefully 2019 we may finally get all the Hello Kitty we love and deserve!

Sanrio Loot Crate Fun.

I am sure any true Hello Kitty fan out there is aware of these awesome little Loot Crates. I know I have been going crazy for them for over a year, but the price always puts me off slightly. At £39 it’s a high price for a gamble on what will be inside 🙀.

I purchased my first box due a coupon with 20% off, and as I had some birthday money I thought I’d treat myself. Being that I’m in England, this took a long time to come!

my first box was the Tasty collection, I love food so I was looking forward to what would be coming! There was a mixture of cute and colourful items including:

  • A burger apron
  • Gudetama bento box
  • A very cute Hello Kitty hot dog plushie
  • Sanrio coasters
  • Gudetama charm
  • Sanrio Lunchbox

To be honest, there was only a few things out of the box I really liked, or would use. So I did think I would cancel… The only problem was, I forgot to! So then another one came to my house, and I’m so thankful it did, as this one was perfect

Sweet Dreams was cute as a button. It ticked all the boxes! Pastel colours, more Hello Kitty and items I would use!

In the Sweet Dreams box you got:

  • A very cute pastel t shirt
  • A hello kitty squishy keyring (seen on the picture)
  • Sanrio blanket
  • Sanrio eye mask
  • Sanrio stacking dolls
  • Little twin stars charm

To conclude, I am carrying on with the Loot crates. They come only 4 times a year, and at the moment I am really enjoying them.

What do you guys think? Have you had the the Hello Kitty Loot Crate, or any other suprise box? Let me know what you think, or if there is any other cute boxes I should get.
