An illustrator by the name of Joseph Senior has released a project labeled Pop Culture Hello Kitty.

Birthday gift for me from anyone?? haha

Gossip Girl Soundtrack

One of my guilty pleasure shows to watch is none other than Gossip Girl. The lives of those of the Upper East Side keep me coming back for more every week. But what I am really impressed by is the musical gems that can be found through the show. Some are stuff on the radio regularly, but quite frequently I see myself using my SoundHound app on my phone to find what song was just playing. So, took some work, but I have compiled a list of songs that have been featured on the show thus far that are available on spotify. So I hope you enjoy it and I will continue to update it on a regular basis as new episodes come on.

Amira Ahmed

Received my issue of NYLON today in the mail to find Nina on the cover. I'll admit I have watched whatever episodes they have of The Vampire Diaries on Netflix. I can't get over the vampire craze haha. Anyways, I have a whole stack of magazines piled up which I plan to get too, but I did start skimming through this one. And I have found a new girl crush my friends. She is stunning.

Please meet Ms. Amira Ahmed if you have not already. She is featured as this month's model citizen. I love people who have mixed racial backgrounds, and Amira's father is from Somalia and her mother from the Phillipines.  She grew up all over the world the article says, but most of her studies were done in Prague. She was scouted while working at a fast food restaurant and studying at the University of Westminster. She is currently 22 years old, and I am certain we'll be seeing more of her face.


Fred Perry x Medicom

For Fred Perry's 60th year in existence,  they will be teaming up with Japanese toy manufacturer by the name of Medicom to create this cute little toy.

Why does this matter to you Hana, you may ask? Well I am Japanese of course! haha. Well there is more then that reason. My interest with the British label Fred Perry is because of this.

Marshall seems to wear this brand a lot on HIMYM. I didn't pay attention so much in the later seasons, but definitely in the beginnings ones you can see him sporting Fred Perry a lot. So it has sparked an interest. My mom also wears a Fred Perry polo, but she has had it for WAY to long haha. May I should replace it for her? haha

Anyways the name of this cool little toy will be Bearbrick and will be available starting February 1st.

Hana and Sora

here's one for the bottoms up feature

My sister recently went to geisha house in LA with her boyfriend since they purchased one of the group on deals the place had going. When she went she took a look at the cocktail menu. And guess what? There was a beverage with my name, and my dogs name :) The Hana actually looks pretty good. I'll have to go and try it sometime.


California Wives - Tokyo

I like to download mixes that different bloggers make. I find it interesting why they chose certain songs for different themes and such. This is a goodie :)

Lil' Wayne - Let The Beat Build

Lil' Wayne

 Lil Wayne - Let The Beat Build .mp3
Found at bee mp3 search engine

I've never been much of a lil' wayne fan. If he is featured on some song that I might be interested, but never been into his solo stuff. But I just heard this song for the first time today, yes very late I know, off the Carter 3 album. Nice stuff. And well we all know how I love Kanye, and he produced this track which makes it even more special. I'm gonna post a youtube link of a song he sampled from. I might try to do more of these sample features regularly. My friend made a samples playlist on spotify and I am enjoying it very much, so I'll probably steal from it :) anyways tell me what you think!

Bulletproof Art

Came across this artist through a blog I follow and found it pretty cool. California artist David S. Palmer uses bullet casings to create portraits of people who have actually been killed by a bullet. Very neat stuff. Here a few of his pieces.

Alessi's Ark - The Fever

Old followers of my blog would know my love for instrumentals. Lately I have been on spotify, grouped all the songs from different playlists that i had subscribed to, and put it all together. This is one of the gem's from that compilation. I plan to go through the whole CD this song came from, but this is golden in my hears. Hope you like!
