Hello dollies… sorry I haven’t been online much. I’ve been working 12-hour days, doing TV shoots for Food Network. And a giant typhoon has just hit Tokyo!

However, I have wonderful news: I will be featured in a 30-minute episode of NHK Kawaii TV. The popular program, airing on Japan’s national broadcaster, covers cute Japanese fashion, trends and people. We’ll be shooting this week in Tokyo; I’ll let you know when my episode airs (and put up a clip).

Speaking of kawaii — dig my Hello Kitty hair. The day after my birthday party, it remained in place.

Zebra zip-top: World Wide Love, from Closet Child Shinjuku. Seba and I share this item, like many of our clothes…

As usual, we stayed in the Orlando Hotel in West Hollywood. (Remember our review of the LA boutique hotel?)

The Orlando has newly renovated luxury rooms. We were overjoyed to see the staff again, and chomp on green apples from the front desk!

Can’t argue with this view of Los Angeles’ West 3rd Street. It’s lined with adorable boutiques and restaurants, including our beloved Indian hangout — Electric Karma.

And the Orlando is a short ride to M Cafe, one of my favorite eateries on the planet.

As always, Seba and I went to see our friends at Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy in Santa Monica. We love instructor Cindy.

I got my hair twisted into a Hello Kitty bow and crimped!

Since we were by the beach, we went for a stroll — followed by pink grapefruit gelato on Third Street Promenade. I’m wearing HOPE tshirt from our Japan charity collection.

A creative hairstyle, isn’t it? To get the look, put part of your hair in a ponytail, separate, hairspray, and clip in the back. Then twirl a circle and secure it in the middle.

Funny how you can see the shadow of my bow, and Seba’s devil horns.

Have you watched NHK Kawaii TV before? What do you think of the program? Any suggestions for what I should wear, and how I should style my hair?
