Odds + ends 4/19/13

Happy Friday, y'all! I'm so glad it's the weekend, and so thankful for the heavy rains that are coming our way today. I've been a bit of a hermit this week due to the pollen situation outside. It's allergy season, and boy, do I suffer! Stuffy nose, puffy eyes, sore throat -- my head feeling like it's going to explode from the pressure. Oy. It's a good thing the Mister is a pharmacist. He knows what to prescribe to get me through. 

Speaking of the Mister, he and his buddies made the trek to Biloxi late yesterday for a little guy's trip. I'm crossing my fingers he wins big at blackjack and comes home with some fun money! Natty needs a new pair of shoes. He's a pretty great blackjack player, and he's won big before (and of course, he's lost a little before, too!) He sure does love Biloxi...and Las Vegas. Hey, did I mention that we're going to Las Vegas at the end of June? I've never been. We're staying at the Mirage, which was free, thanks to James's recent trips to Las Vegas bachelor parties over the last few years (woo hoo! Free is always good.) So far we've booked a day tour to the Grand Canyon -- something I have always wanted to see. James is, of course, excited to play some more blackjack, and I might be just a wee bit excited to play that game I got a little addicted to had fun playing last year my first time at a casino. I'm really just psyched there's a nice pool at the Mirage. We are so excited. Do any of you have any must-see Vegas shows you'd recommend? We're still deciding...

Like I mentioned yesterday, it's been a tough week in the news, but we know how to dust ourselves off and get back up. Today is a new day. To cap off the week on a happy note, here are a few things I want to share with you guys...

A few things that caught my eye this week:

1. Bri's new office space (that girl can't do anything less than spectacular!) + her gold handset, $60

2. I splurged on this Rachel Roy cross body the other day -- how much fun is that fringe?

3. Joy Cho's recent thrift finds -- for just $15 each! I have major thrift envy.

4. Minnie Mouse, ahem, "Madame Mouse" Louboutin pumps!

5. This bright toucan print by Komitaart is so great, and at only $25, it's quite a steal.

6. I have a major crush on Charlotte Olympia's wicker clutch. Sigh. In my dreams!

And a few other things worth sharing:

Macklemore's new video for "Can't Hold Us" made its debut this week! See it here.

These photos by Oliva Rae James literally took my breath away. 

I think the prices may be off on some of these, but whoa, our childhood toys are worth some dough!

Next time you're thinking of telling a woman "you'll change your mind..." -- don't do it.

You little rebel.

A crafty way to hide those remote controls.
