With the booming popularity of Instagram-Influencer-Selfie-Farms such as the Museum of Illusions and Immersive Van Gogh taking up space everywhere, it’s expected that folks have forgotten completely about The Egg House, which was open from April through June of 2018 in NYC. The Egg House was an immersive, fantasy pop-up space that took visitors inside the home of an anthropomorphic Egg named Ellis. It was in Ellis’s kitchen that one would encounter rows and rows of Millennial Pink Spatulas (and the occasional wire whisk) suspended from the ceiling.
TJ Maxx delivers again with the accidental discovery of this awesome Valentines Day card that opens to feature a bunch of cute sharks popping out at you! Squee!
I realize that all TJ Maxx stores do not necessarily have the same merchandise, but the card is super cute and pretty cheap ($3.99) for a pop-up card of this quality, so maybe make a run to your neighborhood location and see if you can get lucky.

Yes, it Exists: Hello Kitty Pink Hot Chocolate (just add hot water!) is a thing that you can buy! With 100% positive on-line reviews from what you know are satisfied customers, the ‘delicious’ taste is described as “like a rich hot cocoa with a subtle hint of coconut.” Sounds yummy to me! Each 1.25 once envelope sells individually for just $1.99, so there no big commitment involved if it ends up not being your thing. But seriously, how can you not love Pink Hot Chocolate?

Well, New York City really has it all, oh yeah. And by “all,” I’m including a Pop Up, or in this case Pup Up Grooming Salon, sponsored by Klarna. The Pup-Up — which was open from October 31st to November 2nd — allowed dog owners and their dogs to get matching makeovers together. The space (located in the meatpacking district just wet of the Apple Store on West 14th Street) had custom made human and dog makeover stations for the matching duos as well as a myriad of little dog friendly touches: little pink carpet for the dogs, dog level VIP ropes and some decor, just for the dogs, hung at dog height. This bowl of Pink Tennis Balls was just outside the door, so that each dog cloud take home a souvenir. Celebrity dog groomer, Jess Rona (dubbed ‘the Oprah of dog groomers’) who is known for her signature musical slow-mo blowout videos and primping Katy Perry’s poodles, was on-site to offer her stylish services to dogs and owners alike.
It’s a Hello Kitty world, and we just live in it. Cost Plus World Market on 6th Avenue between 18th and 19th Streets in Manhattan just re-imagined itself as a Hello Kitty Pop Up wonderland, where Hello Kitty-themed items spread out across the entire merchandise floor, save for a very narrow perimeter of the store, where you can still find throw pillows and scented candle with the Cost Plus brand attached. There are also many step-and-repeat-style Hello Kitty selfie stations scattered throughout the store, so expect to start seeing this marketing nightmare ‘Pop Up’ all over Instagram.
The red sauce, whose label boasts that it is made from “fresh, ripe tomatoes from Napoli, Italy,” sells for $6.99 per 19.6-ounce jar. They also sell Hello KItty-shaped dry pasta, but I am saving that for another post.
The Hello Kitty Pop Up at Cost Plus World Market will be open through the Holiday Season into January 2020!
