Pretty sunrises, fawns, Nescafe Rich instant coffee, knitting, watching Superstore on Amazon Prime, the smell of fresh baked bread, wearing cozy sweaters, cuddling with Sugar on chilly nights, the long weekend ahead, pretty face masks, and of course good health!
My first memories of Hello Kitty were back in the early 90s with an adorable little show called Hello Kitty and Friends which aired on YTV here in Canada! They were a series of short episodes based on popular fairytales – like Snow White and my favourite Alice and Wonderland. Do you remember this?!?
I remember waking up BRIGHT and early to catch them and one of my strongest childhood memories was being absolutely terrified of the Big Clock episode!
Sanrio has been dousing the world in PURE KAWAII CUTENESS since the 1970s, and despite being a lifelong fan, I only started avidly collecting Hello Kitty stuff back in 2015/2016. Before that you’ll be surprised to know that I was living a very frugal minimalist life (I’ve really made up for it since then ;))!
I think I have a couple of hundred Kitty (and and her friends!) items now – from purses, plushies, stationery, to my microwave, books, and a toilet paper cover… anything you can IMAGINE (I’ll catalogue it all eventually)! She’s an icon for positivity and fills me with pure nostalgic happiness and makes it impossible to have a bad day anymore!
So are you ready to fall down the rabbit hole into her cute little world?!
What better thing than to remember and share what makes you the HAPPIEST! Then you can look back on it on the days that feel the gloomiest and look back at what makes life truly great. 😀 So each and every Thursday I’m going to share a few of my LOVES!
So the first instance of things I love should probably be something I really love…. HEARTS!!! <3
I was talking with people at work who were complaining a bit about how there is Valentines stuff out in stores already (I saw stuff on Boxing Day already haha)! But I LOVE IT! Even though I’m perpetually happily single, hearts fill me with warmth and happiness. Second to my Hello Kitty collection is my collection of HEART things so I look forward to Valentines season to increase my love of love!
