Missing the Warm Weather

Hi Lovely!

I hope you’re having a great day! I went back through my photos and realized I never shared this cute outfit from the summer! My sister was in town and we spent a day as a family in Seattle. It was super-fun! I was totally feeling my look that day and had Fletch snap a few photos.

Visiting the Sanrio Headquarters in San Francisco

Hi Lovely!

If you follow me on Instagram then you know that I recently visited the Sanrio headquarters in San Francisco. It was amazing!! To understand how special this was I feel like you need to know my history with Sanrio.

Growing up in Alaska we had one Sanrio store. It was in the fancy mall across town and taking trips to the area was rare. I remember saving up my money so I could buy items from the store. My go-to was the goodie bags. My favorite character was Badtz Maru, I think I liked that he seemed like a bad boy. I have fond memories of shopping with my parents and picking out items.

As I grew into my teens I distanced myself from Sanrio. I thought it was kid stuff, not fit for a cool teenager to be into. As I aged I always thought Hello Kitty and Sanrio, in general, was cute. It wasn’t until the Hello Kitty Friendship Festival that I rediscovered my love. It’s like a spark went off. At the time I was collecting other toys and characters just not specifically Sanrio. I slowly started collecting more and more and it has grown into the kawaii mess I have now.

Sanrio brings me back to a simpler time. I think back to those special moments I spent with my Mom picking out new pens or plushies and it gives me the warm fuzzies. So yeah, Sanrio is special to me.

When my friend, Shawn, asked if I’d want to join her for a quick trip to the headquarters, I jumped at the chance. Talk about a dream come true! I’d get to walk the halls of my favorite company and meet the people there.
