After bringing home an armful of M•A•C Hello Kitty makeup from the launch party of Hello Kitty Kouture, Sean and I decided we had to have another shoot! When I saw Vanessa's gorgeous mohawk, I knew she HAD to be our next model. I did Vanessa's face in M•A•C Kitty lipstick in Big Bow, Hello Kitty Tinted Lip Conditioner in Popster, Hello Kitty Eyeshadow X 4: Too Dolly and M•A•C's extra exclusive Hello Kitty Kouture Sheer Mystery Powder. She is wearing 6 TARINA TARANTINO PINK HEAD necklaces!!! and a HOT TOPIC hot pink and black tutu.

Look what I got on ebay! This cute little sweater cost next to nothing! (And a lot of shipping. lol.) I am wearing it with my LTB jeans, my favorite pointy, studded REPORT shoes and my jelly roll HELLO KITTY purse. On my wrist are my friendship bracelet from Vanessa and a leather cuff with a cute little crystal button.

Contributors: Thank you Sean for letting me use your portion of the studio!

Girl Bands by Kamie Kahlo

Did South Korean nine-member girl band Girls’ Generation (fans usually refer to the group as SNSD, the acronym of the group's Korean name So Nyeo Shi Dae) just add another singer? The original members include (in order of official announcement) Yoona, Tiffany, Yuri, Hyoyeon, Sooyoung, Seohyun, Taeyeon (the leader), Jessica, and Sunny. Kamie was a natural addition to make SNSD a ten-member girl group! After all with similar backgrounds through acting, DJ-ing, and modeling, wouldn’t Kamie be the perfect fit? Well, not really.

I am definitely NOT the tenth pickup to this adorable group. (There isn’t one.) But, haven’t you ever wished you could be in your own girl band? This is one dream that countless girls share. It has been my “castle in the sky” for decades. (Won’t tell you how many. Too shocking.) When I was 10, my sister and I would put on our own backyard variety shows and invited the neighbors to view our lip-syncing abilities. I would daydream endlessly about appearing on talk and variety shows. I practiced my responses as much as I would practice actually singing.

Today, I still practice, in my head of course, just what I will say when being interrogated on Oprah or Chelsea Lately. I begged my husband to buy me a Fender Hello Kitty Stratocaster guitar for my birthday and I intend on playing it. Sean and I even did this photoshoot to demonstrate that, at least aesthetically; I might just be a good fit. And maybe, just maybe, someday soon you will see me in my own girl band called Adelita.

5-Day Pick Up Kitty Style by Kamie Kahlo

Sadly, this is our last kitty blog for this week. Since I post my outfits every day, some of you may have been wondering, "What did she wear this week?" Take a look at this 5-day Pick Up. True to our theme, I wore something Hello Kitty every day. Monday was a SUCRE SOIR butterfly top in jade with a brown tank top underneath and a small crystal framed PINKHEAD necklace. Tuesday I had an interview and shopping for a photoshoot so I dressed a little more professional: THREE DOT super soft modal faux wrap, MAE wool city shorts, my BUFFALO EXCHANGE boots and a special PINK HEAD ponytail necklace. Wednesday was my casual day. I wore a HOLLISTER pink terry tube top and my favorite PINK HEAD rainbow necklace with chunky lucite chain. Thursday I paired my PETRO ZILLIA silk striped shirt with my LTB skinny jeans and STREETS AHEAD pink cowhide belt with crystals, on top was the famous PINK HEAD necklace worn by CAMERON DIAS. Finally, Friday was another comfy day, picking up props and playing video games with LIL STAR in an exclusive TARINA TARANTINO PINK HEAD super sheer t-shirt!!

How Much is Too Much? by Kamie Kahlo

Now that I have you all on Kitty Overload, it’s probably appropriate to discuss when to say when. I think it has more to do with who you are and your relationship to that “thing”. So for my significant other, the overload of Hello Kitty might of happened by my second entry this week. For me, this is just the beginning.

Obsession is a tricky thing. Let’s take a look at our image for this entry. Who would guess that this is just a commercialized children’s hospital? At first glance, it would seem so but, if you think about it, not exactly. In this photo we see newborns. Newborns are not children. They come into this world puppy-like, a clean slate with their eyes barely focused. They couldn’t possibly appreciate being swaddled in Hello Kitty, other than the fact that it keeps them warm and cozy. They couldn’t possibly take in the nurses colorful aprons, see that gorgeous character with no mouth and 6 perfectly placed whiskers and understand they are being given a dose of what kitty means. So, who is this hospital for? The mothers! (And for older children.)

This nurse is tending to a baby inside a Hello Kitty themed maternity ward inside a hospital in Changhua County in western Taiwan. Director Tsai Tsung-chi said, "I wish that everyone who comes here, mothers who suffer while giving birth and children who suffer from an illness, can get medical care while seeing these kitties and bring a smile to their faces, helping forget about discomfort and recover faster."

Some of you reading this may be choking on your kitty kibble, but for me it demonstrates so well that Tsai Tsung-chi mania with a fictional kitten (or at least his understanding of other people’s mania) has literally turned into a “healthy” obsession!

MAC Collaboration with Hello Kitty? Meow! by Kamie Kahlo

MAC Cosmetics will introduce it's Hello Kitty color cosmetics collection on MAC’s website Feb. 10, in North American stores on Feb. 12 and into overseas stores in March.

“MAC has been mining pop culture since the brand was founded,” said John Demsey, group president of the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc. “This is a sexy and innocent fashion line, and a true MAC moment. In these times, everyone can use a little fun — and a little Kitty.”

The Hello Kitty line falls into two collections. First the Hello Kitty Colour Collection items: six shades of lipstick with names like "Fashion Mews" and "Strayin’", each $14; six Lipglass shades, each $14; and two tinted lip conditioners, $14.50 each; two eye shadow palettes, which each contain four shades and retail for $38; two shades of pigment are $19.50 each, and two Reflects Glitter stockkeeping units — one blue, one pink — are $17.50 each. Four Glitter Eye Liners, each $16.50, two shades of Beauty Powder, each $22; three shades of nail polish, each $11; a black mascara, $12, and false lashes, $12, round out the color offerings. A pretty mix of shades any little kitten would approve of ranges from pinks and turquoises to lavenders and greens.

Then there's Hello Kitty Kouture, the high end of the collection. Two shades of Dazzleglass, each $28, each feature a reusable silver chain pendant with Hello Kitty outlined in white Swarovski crystals on black with a pink crystal bow. Sheer Mystery Powder, $90 and available in three shades and is packaged in a silver powder compact with Hello Kitty outlined in white Swarovski crystals with a pink crystal bow on a black background.
