I am super tired. Yawwwnnn.
I went with some friends to see the Celebration of Light in Vancouver last night and stayed up way past my bedtime. The Celebration of Light is an annual festival where there are fireworks shows from different countries around the world, that happen every Wednesday and Saturday night for a few weeks. The one we went to last night was Brazil and it was amazing and so worth my sleepy state today.
I heard that on Saturday there were close to 350,000 people that lined the beaches to watch the show. I think there were probably a lot less than that this time, being it was a Wednesday but, there were ALOT of people down there nonetheless. We had a cramped walk back to the skytrain and then a cramped, sticky and sweaty, standing skytrain ride all the way home. We got home somewhere around 1am and I was done for. My usual bedtime is around 10-10:30 so I passed out right away when we got into bed.
I awoke sometime around 3am to Geoffrey sticking his paw in my ear and then happily purring and kneading on my face, when he successfully woke me up. I batted him away for a while but he was being relentless so finally I had to kick him out of our room. He then spent the next 10 minutes running around the hallway outside our room and trying to stick his paws under the door. So I had to lock him in the bathroom with his litter and food.
Ugh. It was a sleepless night.
Also I don’t even want to THINK about what I would be like with a child. Considering I’m pretty sure it’s frowned upon to lock your baby in the bathroom when they are interrupting your sleep.
Yeah, definitely frowned upon.
Who’s excited? I AM. I looovveee getting my Glymm box in the mail every month. AND I am happy to announce that I think that this months box was one of the best so far!
We got a little orange bag this time so that makes my collection so far, pink, blue and orange. WEE.
The whole lot!
Okay first up we have a coupon for 25% off any nail polish! Wee. I’m a nail polish hoarder, my favorite brand at the moment is China Glaze but unfortunately Glymm doesn’t carry that brand. They do carry RGB, which I haven’t tried as well as Butter London, which is great but I am not sure it is worth the more expensive price.
Next up we have Dirt Purify & Glow Salt Scrub in Cucumber Fig (15ml) – Full Size $45.00 for 12 oz/350 ml
People were getting all up in arms about how small this was and saying it was half full. Okay, yes it may have been about 3/4 full, but it’s a sample, AND all the other items in the box were good sized samples. I wasn’t disappointed. It smelled yummy and I like to keep these kinds of things in a basket in the spare bathroom for people to try if they stay over. Call me Martha.
After that we have Mane Teeze Social Butterfly Hair Perfume – Full Size $34.00 for 50 ml
This is yummy! It smells really vanilla-y and sweet. I love the idea of a hair perfume and this is a pretty big sample, so it would be perfect to carry in your purse to freshen up your hair after a long day.
Next we got Joico K-Pak Revitaluxe Hair Mask (50ml) – Full size: 150 mL for $25.00
Yay, I love Joico’s K-Pak line! A few years ago I got my hair dyed platinum blonde, normally I am already pretty blonde, but this was like white blonde. After that my ends were pretty destroyed, so I was told to use the K-Pak shampoo and conditioner to repair my poor hair. I was doubtful that a shampoo and conditioner could actually work that type of magic, but it worked! It was amazing and I recommend it to anyone that has damage they want to repair. This product is a mask so it can be used a few times a month just to repair and maintain your tresses.
And last but not least and by far the most confusing item in the bag, was CyberDerm Duo H20 Hydration & PM Anti Age – Full Sizes $60 &$115 respectively for 50ml
This was, how can I say, confusing. First of all the package has ZERO instructions on what these are or how to use them. Second of all, the cream like substance is in plastic syringes….um wha?
I think this was just a cute way to package it but I think it confused a lot of people.
Either way these are anti aging and hydrating sunscreens and they smell a little weird but I will definitely give them a try.
All in all the box this month was awesome!
If you want to get one of these boxes of love every month, you can sign up here.
I hope everyone has a great day and evening and I will see you back here tomorrow for a restaurant review.
