Being sick sucks. Especially when you find out that a Jimmy Choo sample sale is taking place today, Thursday, from 1-7PM at the The Metropolitan Pavilion on 125 West 18th Street, between Sixth & Seventh Aves. On my best day I know that elbowing it out for Choos will be quite taxing, but when my head feels like it's the size of Mexico, I just don't have it in me. But wait. I've been sneezing and sniffling all day, and noticed how people visibly back away from me every time I do. This is a city, after all, that's scared sh*tless of the swine flu right now. Maybe I can clear the path to a size 5 1/2 pair of stilettos by some unhealthy sneezing and coughing? Something to consider.

Not usually my style, but I feel like I could use a "Galivanting Bag" or a bandanna bag right about now.
Some gorgeous cuffs that are maybe more glam boho than authentically bohemian ...
I need an escape ...

But then again, maybe it's alright because I don't know that I could cough up $249 for an H&M dress—even one as cute as the one above. The long dress in the first picture is $349! Whoa.
Or even $129 for this cutie pie above. Maybe the belt. I'd spring for that $49.90 belt.
When did designer collabs get so darn pricey? Wasn't the point to make their pieces more affordable for the masses? At this point, I might as well just shop the contemporary section at Bloomie's rather than fight it out with the hordes at H&M. And good lord, at those prices, imagine how steep the markups will be at Ebay? Yikes.

I feel like I MUST have it as an homage to all those writers that came before me. And my fave writer girl Carrie Bradshaw (I know she uses a MAC and she's not a real person, but humor me here), who I'm watching on a rerun as I type. By the way, I found out a few minutes ago that I've not fallen into the dark abyss of Edward Cullen madness. I had literally just taken a step towards the DVD player to put on Twilight again when the image of the Chrystler Building and the all-too-familiar SATC music stopped me in my tracks. Yes, my love for Carrie still trumps Edward Cullen. Phew.

- Took my little niece to shop for Chucks in Times Square
- Then took my little niece for ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery
- B*tched out a cab driver along the way for almost splashing us with grimy gutter water—not my finest moment, since I was with an 11-year-old
- Skipped Bikram yoga for this:
Also, I didn't return the Twilight DVD. I should really stop pretending I'm gonna stop acting like a 14-year-old and just buy the damn thing. And maybe the soundtrack (well ok let's not carried away here, maybe just download it)? Did you know Rob Pattinson sang two songs played on the soundtrack and that he really plays the piano? *sigh*

It's such a gorgeous day today, the type of day Saturday brunches were made for. I stepped out for brunch with some old high school friends then walked around to window shop. My last stop was Club Monaco where these gorgeous bikes were on display. It's the Gazelle for Club Monaco, which are selling for $995. I don't know much about bikes; I haven't ridden one since I was 8. But they're beautiful, and I'd imagine wonderful to ride around the city on days such as this.

It will be a pain to move though and will cost a lot of $$$ because not only will moving entail new security deposits and such fees, but also buying new furniture since I've been living in a furnished apartment for the last 1 1/2 years. But at the same time, it would be fun to get to decorate an entire space. I've never done it in my life so I'm excited!
A few snapshots from the IKEA website of what I dream to have in my apartment (but probably will not). Don't you wish you could live in an IKEA catalog sometimes? Kind of like Edward Norton's character in Fight Club (well, before he blew up the place at least).
Oh IKEA, you and I will be having a summer fling.
I just love the idea of these charms by Page Sargisson. They can be customized to mark one's birthday! I would totally love one, and I think it's also a great gift idea. It's not super cheap, of course since it's custom-made—prices range from $215-310, depending on the size of the pendant and the material used. Pendants are made out of recycled gold and sterling silver.
I sent out that Panther ring on shoots a bazillion times (and tried it on a similar number of times) when I was interning at Cartier. I therefore conclude that I have somehow touched Robert Pattinson's killer mug.
That's all I really wanted to say. Now for more droolworthy pics. THIS is why I'm crazy over Pattinson. If only he looked like this all the time (and showered more).
Sweet Jesus, the hotness.
