Hello Kitty Solo2 Beats

I love listening to music, especially when I'm on the go, so when Mr spotted these Hello Kitty Beats he persuaded me to get them. They were originally released as a collaboration between Beats by Dr Dre and Sanrio to celebrate Hello Kitty's 40th Anniversary.

They debuted at Hello Kitty Con 2014 so I presumed that they were no longer available, but I managed to get these in the UK at HMV and they were at a dropped down price of £70! I know how much Beats normally are and have never spotted a pair I liked enough to part with the price tag so when I got these I knew I had a bargain.

So here they are! My Hello Kitty Solo2 Beats! I normally use in ear headphones so these are a big change for me, but with how nice these are it's worth the change!

They are predominantly white with the Hello Kitty iconic look on the headband. It's a really nice design, not over the top but with Hello Kitty on show.

Here's a look from the side, the top of the headband is a nice blue and the Hello Kitty design down the sides and on the ear pieces are really simple but stylish. They are a really nice fit and adjustable and there's a little touch of Kitty on the inside of the headband too. They even come with this cute carry case:

This protects them really well when I pop them back into my bag! They aren't available on the HMV site any more but I have seen some still in the store so if you want to grab yourself a pair get them quick!

Catch you later Kawaiisters!

My Minnie Mouse Disney Store Bargains!

Just after Christmas we popped into the Disney Store in Birmingham to see what they had in their sales, you can find some real gems if you get in early and I wasn't disappointed. Here is my new Minnie Mouse Loungefly bag and wallet!

It's a large tote bag with adjustable shoulder straps and it has a huge spotty Minnie Bow keychain on it. I love how bright the bag is and it's covered in the icon that is Minnie Mouse! It's got a zip and is waterproof which is always handy here in the UK! The inside of the bag is plain black but with plenty of space and pockets for your kawaii bits! The bag also comes with a longer shoulder strap that you can add if you like to wear it that way.

The wallet is black and spotty with the same Minnie Mouse design from the tote all over the front. It's the same material as the bag and has lots of space for what you need on the inside. Both the bag and wallet are really well made and I got them at a bargain price of £10 for the wallet and £15 for the bag! It really is worth checking out their sales! Wonder what I will find in the next sale!

Catch you later Kawaiisters!

What I got for Christmas! TSUMTSUMS!

Knowing how awesome Mr is at present shopping, I asked for all surprises for Christmas this year and he did not disappoint! I have split up what I got into mini collections with the first being all the TsumTsum items I got.

The first item I got was this super special Beauty and the Beast subscription box that was sold in the US in September 2016:

The release of this box coincided with Disney celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the movie and features Belle and Beast in the outfits they wear in the snowball fight scene in the movie. How adorable is Belle in her hooded cape?! I am a huge fan of Beauty and the Beast and can't wait for the live action movie to be released next month!

The next item Mr found me was this adorable pack of Marvel TsumTsum sweets from Japan:

The end of the pack has a little box in it with a surprise inside:

It's a Thor rubber!! And you know how much I love stationery! <3 The next item I got was this convenience store lotto item from Japan:

It's a super cute keyring in the shape of a cookie with icing! I wish we had lottos like this in UK convenience stores! There an easy way to access super cute and special items you can't buy!

The last item I got was super special:

YES! Mr had tracked me down a San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Metallic Captain America TsumTsum! <3 Captain America is my favourite character and I can't believe I now have this in my possession! It will take pride of place in our newly renovated Geek Room when it's completed!

So that was all my TsumTsum presents! Did you get any special Tsum gifts for Christmas?

Disney X Cath Kidston Collection

If you follow the Life in the Kawaii Lane Instagram you may have spotted a special collaboration that was launched between Disney and Cath Kidston at the beginning of December! I have been a fan of Cath Kidston for a long time now, starting many years ago with a pink Cath Kidston Nokia phone with white stars all over! ^^ Walking through Grand Central in Birmingham the Minnie and Mickey Mouse display caught my eye!

Any regular readers will know Mr and I LOVE Disney and Minnie Mouse is my home girl so we just had to peep inside and see what they had on offer:

They had phone cases, place mats, cushions and bags on one display, I loved the Mickey and Minnie Spot cases but they weren't the right case for my phone :(

On the other display STATIONERY!!! <3<3<3 Who doesn't love some cute stationery?! They had pens and pads and luggage tags and clothing! Theres something for any pricetag available so if you want to grab something from the range you are bound to find something! I didn't pick anything up at the time as I guessed someone in my family would see it for me for Christmas, and I was right!

One of my lovely sisters bought me this super cute Minnie Mouse teatowel and pad! This is the Minnie and Mickey Spot range and my favourite of the collections. Now I have these I plan on nipping back and picking up a few more bits, hopefully the shop will be less busy so I can pick carefully! If you're a fan of Disney it's worth keeping an eye out for X Cath Kidston collections, they've previously released a Winnie the Pooh range!
