Two weeks after I vend at Renegade Craft Fair this weekend, I will be selling Yummy You! merch at the first KawaiiLand San Francisco! There’s going to be live music, a fashion show, and tons of cute vendors! You can see some video from KawaiiLand LA on the website. Let’s make the SF event even more cute, colorful, and fun!  I’m putting together and will be bringing some brand spankin’ new stuff, including the debut of a brand new member/character in the Yummy You Crew, plus all of our cute scarves! (I’ll reveal more details about the new member as the new merch rolls in…)

I know I have personally kvetched about how we don’t have as many kawaii/J-fashion events here in SF as compared to LA, so here is our chance to make it happen!! It’s also 4 days before my birthday, so you can come and wish me a happy one!  You can purchase your $15 ticket now, from me, at this link right here! If you or your friends buy the ticket through my unique link, your ticket sale will go toward the cost of my table, so you would not only be supporting kawaii culture in our city, but also really directly supporting me, which I would so appreciate! I’ll see you there! (21+!)

You each get half of the heart-pizza, and when you get together, you can combine your pizza-heart-powers!

The “Partay! Pizza Partay!” song from the Pizza Party board game commercial back in the 80s is TOTALLY STUCK IN MY HEAD!!!!!!!

I’ll try go get more pics of these soon. If you guys get one, you can always tag @Yummy You on Facebook or #yummyyou on Instagram (@iloveyummyyou) so that we can see! <3

New Yummy You! item in the shop! Tako (Octopus) Scarf!

SlideOctopus5I’m really honestly so excited to announce that we have a BRAND NEW scarf in the Yummy You! shop for all my sushi-lovers, beach-combers, and mermaid-dreamers!

We received so many requests to produce this Tako Scarf, and now it’s finally here! WOOHOO!

IMG_8369We had a whirlwind day of some super-fast ninja-style photoshooting with model Shannie Bee and photog/MUAH Crazy Spork I Am. Dance studio Dance Boulevard in San Jose was nice enough to let us invade one of their rooms for a little bit!

IMG_8506These ladies are so amazing. I just showed up with a suitcase full of stuff, and they did all the rest (okay, I did the driving, I helped!). At first we were going for a nautical/sailor theme, and then we also wanted to throw in a little mermaid magic. All the photos (to me) told the story of a mermaid dreaming of things she would do if she were human, like attending a human party, having a picnic on the grass, or learning how to dance.

I think we’ll be posting the full sets from these photos on the Yummy You! Facebook page throughout the week.

Until then, sea you at the mermaid picnic! RSVP ASAP at YummyYou.com :)

Marshmallow Charm Bracelets, a magical collab with Fatally Feminine Designs, now available at YummyYou.com!
