My fellow beauty lover on Instagram, @blanckittyyy, and I were sharing our favorite mascara on one of her recent posts. I mentioned to her that, don't laugh, my fave was a Hello Kitty version I bought from City Super, a popular store in Hong Kong. And she asked me to do a blog story about it, so here you go my dear...along with a few other items I picked up + a surprise!
Confession of a former hello kitty addict
Yes, when I was little, I was all about Hello Kitty, down to my nickname "Kitty". I know, why would I confess to that, but in case someone from my elementary school in Hong Kong has a picture of me all decked out in HK gear, I may as well spill the beans here! I remember first day of First Grade, I had pencil case, stationery, backpack and hair pins all in the classic red and white style. I felt fearless even though it was a new school and I didn't know a soul there. Funny how little things made us so happy when we were kids. Fast-forward to today, I'm still a huge fan, just in a more toned-down version, but I'd still get excited when I see special Hello Kitty merchandise!
About city super
Quick intro to this awesome shopping heaven in Hong Kong. It's dubbed the "mega lifestyle specialty store" - Think Whole Foods + MUJI + Container Store + Sephora all in one place. Pricing is definitely higher than the local supermarket, but you're paying for the convenience of a one-stop-shop. There are several locations throughout Hong Kong...I know it's not a typical tourist attraction, but if you're ever visiting the city, it's worth popping into a City Super for the experience and for some of their unique beauty finds. For more info, check out their site.
