Layla Mercury Twilight

I had such a huge plate of pad thai for dinner that I’m afraid to go to sleep. I didn’t really eat lunch which I know is bad so I was pretty freaking ravenous come dinner time. I went to this hidden Thai place that my friend introduced me to eons ago and ordered my usual shrimp pad thai and thai iced tea. My brother had the same and he said he really liked it. I think he is the most adventurous one in the family when it comes to trying new foods. I try to be good but sometimes it’s just so hard to eat something that looks strange to me. I was ok with eating escargot when I was in France so I guess I’m not as bad as I think I am.

In other news, I today I picked up two melmers at Michaels. I seriously need a better storage solution for my nail polishes. Since I am close to the 400 mark, I think two melmers will suit me just fine. If I outgrow both of them in less than 6 months, I’m going to have to go to some sort of nail polish addiction therapy. Right now, they are 50% off so I paid around $18 for each 3 drawer melmer. Score! Once I get them all set up and decorated, I will post some pictures.

I also chopped all my hair off today. I love how light my head feels. Is that weird? My hair is so short that I don’t really have to fuss with it at all because it just does its own thing. My hairdresser was talking to me about getting some kind of mohawk, but I don’t think that it would be the best look for job interviews. When my hair grows out a little, I can totally do the flock of seagulls hairdo. Does anyone remember the look? I know it’s pretty atrocious, but it’s so like me to do something crazy with my hair.

Soooo…after all my babbling, here I am with my second bottle of Layla. Once again, I love it. Love.It.

Sorry I’m all over the place tonight. I’m finding it really hard to focus, but I still wanted to share this beauty with you. Thanks to all of you who continue to visit my blog and read my posts even when I’m not making much sense! I really appreciate all of you who leave comments to let me know someone is actually reading! :)

    That is such a gorgeous color! And why would eating that food make you afraid to go to sleep? :(

      It's just something silly from when I was a kid. Every time I ate and fell asleep, I would get nightmares so my mom would tell me not to eat heavy food and go to sleep. lol It was ok, though…no nightmares. :)

    Ahhh so jealous! I've been itching to get a silver holo like this. Soooo pretty.

    1. 22 April, 2012 at 5:28 pm

      Thanks! :) Hopefully one of these days we will get some holos from US brands so we don't have to pay crazy prices. How freaking hard would it be for China Glaze to do some holos instead of a billion glitter collections? Can you imagine how those would sell?!

        They did! It was their OMG collection, but it was limited edition and discontinued. I missed out on them of course since it was before my blogger days. I dunno why companies put something out that is so awesome and then discontinue it so fast!

        1. 23 April, 2012 at 9:10 am

          Yeah, I mean besides some limited collection. People sell that at crazy prices online which I will never pay. I just don't get why they do that either since there are tons of people who would pay for a new holo collection that is affordable.

    It's funny I'm just reading this post cuz I pretty much just wrote the same type of post. Scattered and by the time I was done I was just like "Thanks for always commenting. peace." Haha. Sometimes I just get so scatterbrained instead of babbling on like I am prone to do I just end up saying pretty much nothing. I'm like here are some nails. Bye. Haha. I like doing crazy things with my hair but I haven't cut it short since I was in first grade! I remember my dad thought it would be so cute so I seriously got the hayley mills in parent trap type hair cut.. plus that was prebraces so I had buck teeth.. it was not a good look. I have always kind of fantasized about shaving my head though. Is that weird?! Right now my hair is like most of the way down my back though and I'm not "allowed" to cut it before some weddings this summer so I guess it's not gonna happen. I don't think I'd have the guts anyway. You should totally rock that flock of seagulls do… some people would get it and others would just think you were some sort of hair do pioneer. If you're in the mood some day when it's a bit longer, I say go for it! ;)

    I got an ulta giftcard for my bday so GUESS WHAT IM GETTING?!?! One of these polishes!!! I actually really kinda love the black, so I think I might go with that one or this silver. Which do you recommend?

    PS: I like how I was like "I decided not to ramble on in my blog post" and then just rambled in my comment to you. See what I did there? ;p

    1. 23 April, 2012 at 4:09 am

      Sometimes you just have to ramble! That's when some of the beset stuff comes out. lol

      It is totally NOT weird that you have thought about shaving your head. I am always saying that I want to do that. I've always had such a bad relationship with my hair because it's wavy, then curly and frizzy all at once. But now I have come to realize that my hair is very manageable. I mean, I can make it curly very easily and I can straighten it very easily. I just wish my hair was thicker. It's also super fine. I should totally rock that flock of seagulls do.

      I think you should get the black one. It looks so awesome. I am thinking of getting the black one or one of the green ones next. Let's face it, I'll probably get both. Do you know if they are in stock at your Ulta? Mine still doesn't have them–they are only online. :(

      I really shouldn't be buying anymore polish. I bought 14 zoyas yesterday because they had that earth day promo. :/

      1. 23 April, 2012 at 7:41 am

        OH MY GOD 14!?!? Hahaha. That is a lot but hey, what am I if not an enabler so I say "good for you!" haha. ;) My hair is also curly and kinda frizzy but not like nice curly, just like very wavy curly… but like you said about yours I can straighten it and it's decent or I can make it curly and it's good too. My cousins are super jealous cuz one has super fine hair that just kinda hangs there and my other cousin is Chinese so hers of course is super straight and reluctant to hold a curl. Those two are always like "Ugh… you have the best hair." I never believed them but recently I'm kinda like "Yeah.. my hair is pretty nice, huh? Lucky me!" haha.

        No, mu ulta just has the layla magnet ones. LAAAAME! So I'll probably have to order it as well. At least they have free shipping over $25 so I'm sure I can manage that. ;) I do need to run to Ulta today or tomorrow tho cuz I have a free nail polish rewards certificate so, assuming they HAVE any… I'll pick one up and maybe if I cross my fingers and toes and say a little prayer they'll have the holos. That would rock. But I'm not gonna hold my breath.

        1. 23 April, 2012 at 9:13 am

          Yeah…I just went yesterday and they still didn't have them. The girls had no idea what I was talking about.
          "Holos?"
          "Yes, holographic."
          "Holographic?"
          "Nevermind! Do you have any Laylas besides the magnetic kind?"
          "Magnetic?"

          GhAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

    I haven't had pad thai in years. My boyfriends is iffy on trying new places/foods unless it's at a restaurant where he knows they have something he likes. So no pad thai for me. I love holos! They are so pretty to look at.
