NOTD - Essie's Meet Me at Sunset + Cake Pops (not mine)

Today's NOTD is Essie's Meet Me at Sunset. I picked this up at Target and was drawn to its orangey red wonderfulness.  I already love Chubby Cheeks which is another orangey red but Meet Me at Sunset is much brighter and punchier. It was soooo easy to put on. Really. I was practically rocking back and forth in glee at the ease of this polish. I guess this is a "jelly" polish and it is awesome. A lot comes out on the brush though so I had to be a bit more careful with swiping the brush's extra polish off on the side of the bottle before applying. This is 2 coats with a base and top coat. Drying time was average. I felt like the first layer was drying a bit slowly and was worried about dents especially since I went to sleep less than an hour after applying, but I woke up to wonderfully smooth and shiny nails - no dents!

How come the blogger app doesn't let me insert photos throughout my post and I have to group them all at the end? And it never uploads in the correct order! Argh. Fail! What good is a blog post without photos?  (I actually tried to post this earlier this afternoon but the stupid app crashed.  So I waited until I got home to move the photos around and upload it properly.  Sheesh!)

I am trying a new thing where I'm eating a yummy salad, some fruit, and veggies with hummus every day for lunch and afternoon snack this week.  It makes my lunch bag to work HUGE, but I feel healthier!
Costco has amazing produce, so long as you're not a stickler for organic stuff.  Berries are out!  People were going bah-nah-nas for the strawberries there.  And dang they were out of diet coke.  How the hell does Costco run out of diet coke?!  This healthy lunch thing is good considering over the weekend I ate a ton of beef at my parents' house when my mom cooked up a bunch for my favorite meal where you cook the meat on the table and then dip it in sesame oil seasoned with salt and pepper, and then eat it with sliced green onions that are smothered in even more sesame oil and sesame seeds and spices.  But my favorite part is at the end where we take the leftover beef and onions, add in tons of homemade kimchi (my mom has spoiled me and I can only eat her homemade kimchi now - it's like a kimchi salad, so fresh and not too salty or msg-y!), some spicy red bean paste, EVEN MORE sesame oil, and rice and stir it all together into a delicious bibimbap.  See how yummy? I caught it while my mom was mid-stir in the upper part of the picture.
My mom always gives me the leftovers for lunch the next day, but I always end up eating it all at midnight.  Mmmm.  Afterwards I reek of garlic/onions for at least the next 24 hours and feel grossly stuffed and bloated and sleepy.  So.  Worth.  It.

Also today at work a coworker brought in some adorable mini ice cream cone cake pops!
I said I would just take a single bite, but I failed.
Then I said I wouldn't eat the cone, but I discovered the cone was filled with delicious melted chocolate to hold the cake pop in place.
So I ate it all. And it was good. And now I'm full. And sleepy. Good night.

P.S. Also I added a photo of my smug lil pug.  This is how she tells me she's ready to go to sleep. She crawls on my lap, blocking my view of the tv and stares at me pleadingly.  How can I resist this face?  Manipulative little pug.
