Wellies in my purse!!

So this summer’s been straight @%!#!!!, I mean it’s been a really crappy summer. First we have the ever-changing weather, then of course summer’s latest accessory: RAIN.

On days when I wanna wear my cute fuscia metallic patent Fornarina pumps and have to settle for my black wellies because of this damn rain I wanna curse Canada. Not that you can’t still look cute in wellies but sometimes a girls just wants to wear cute pink pumps! Anyway for those of you who are tired of squishy wet feet because you got caught in a downpour on one of thee sunniest days! or those of you flip flop lovers that are TIRED of strategically jumping over puddles wishing you had wellies; Your prayers have been answered… our prayers have been answered!

They’re wellies. They’re cute. And I can fold em up and put em in my purse? So I don’t have to ruin my shoes (my pumps in particular) when the rain decides to grace us with it’s presence!? Sold.

“Consider Amaort boots an investment piece, as they are perfect for each season – Cool rain in the fall, slush puddles in the winter (team them up with our boot socks), spring rain showers and summer thunderstorms”

Amaort wellies are foldable, compact, stylish and will ensure that you stay dry for this summer. “…designed and produced with fine attention to detail that epitomizes the Japanese sensibility.” These boots work with skinny jeans, or a cute little summer dress, and can be worn up or scrunched down. Functional and Stylish! Loving it!
With Toronto heading towards breaking another record for the wettest summer in years, I think every one should invest in a pair! Infact go to Getoutside Shoes right now and get yourself a pair!
Fun fact: Amaort wellies are named after the sound of falling rain!



Here Kitty, Kitty :)

“Our new partnership with Mimoco brings forth an exciting collection that infuses SANRIO characters with the fun, pop-art world of MIMOBOT”-Janet Hsu, President of Sanrio Global Consumer Products.

Okay I have to admit that I wasn’t a fan of Hello Kitty as a kid, in-fact it’s safe to say that I detested cats. This may have had something to do with my inexplicable fear of cats!! I’ve only ever liked ONE cat in my life, and even then, I had my eye on that sucka, just incase he tried some ish. Anyway so I was “surfing” the internet, and I stumbled across the Hello Kitty MIMOBOT, and thought it was the cutest thing ever!!!

So what’s this all about? Well Sanrio Global Consumer and MIMOBOT announced their new partnership, as part of Hello Kitty’s 35th Anniversary celebration. This collaboration will transform SANRIO characters into cute MIMOBOT designer flash drives. Multiple Hello Kitty x MIMOBOT designs have already been produced and will be ready for release in time for the pop icon’s 35th Anniversary on November 1st.

Super cute, I want one!

The collaboration with Mimico will begin with Hello Kitty and expand to include My Melody, Keroppi, and TuxedoSam etc in MIMIBOT form ranging from 2GB and 16GB capacities. The flash drives will also be available with the mimoDesk personalization suite of SANRIO-themed wallpapers, screen savers, icons, avatars, and other digital surprises. This line will be available for purchase at and, select SANRIO stores and other specialty retailers.
