Glossybox - Harrods Edition

Thanks to A Mothers Ramblings I get a lot of things sent to me to review or because PR's think I might like something based on having worked with me before. One of the things that I get the PR version of but hardly talk about is the Glossybox boxes which I normally pass to my sister after having a quick nose inside, because I don't do makeup and so the things aren't really any use to me and I think it's a shame for them to go to waste. This month however when I looked inside and saw that it was a special Harrods box I knew my sister wasn't going to get a look in!

Harrods Glossybox

Harrods is not only world famous for it's luxury brands but for it's quality too and as I am a huge Harrods fan these samples were all mine. I haven't used them all yet so I can't tell you about the products but in my box I have the following;

The inside of the Harrods Glossybox

Bliss - Blood Orange and White Pepper Body Butter
Revive - Intensite Creme Lustre SPF30
Versace - Vanitas Versace Eau De Parfum
Lancome - Juicytubes Toffee R 'N' B 93 (it really is toffee smelling!)
Clarins - Extra-Firming Body Cream

I just put some of the Juicytube on, it really is so toffee smelling. I feel like I've just eaten a toffee! I've smelt everything else in the box and they all smell fab, so I can't wait to use them, especially as there isn't any make up!

I'm Sick And Grumpy

I went to bed just before 1am last night. I didn't feel right and just couldn't move from the sofa, but I had watched all the TV I could manage and had written up the Smubbles review. I was tired and I knew that unless I went to bed now I would end up sleeping on the sofa. So I climbed the stairs, popped into BB's room to check if he needed the toilet, checked on a sleeping Tops and then climbed into bed. It was 1:09am.

I closed my eyes and the room started spinning. I felt sick, but reassured myself I was just overtired and this was causing the spinning. It was 1:10am.

I put my foot on the floor, risking it being eaten by the alligators that live on the floor in the night, as I had read somewhere that "anchoring" yourself when the room is spinning could stop the sensation. Apparently that only works if you are drunk. It was 1:11am.

I turned over and looked at my husband sleeping in bed, my eyes were heavy but I knew if I closed them the spinning would start again. Somehow I managed to fall asleep. Sweet blissful sleep. Then there was a scream of "MUM" from BB and I pulled myself awake realised that now I was standing the room and I were spinning avoided the obstacle course around my bed and made for BB's room. It was 1:14am

Quickly calming BB down I agreed to sleep in his room, knowing that he would be asleep in seconds and I could make my way back to my bed. He lay down whilst I stared at the ceiling wishing the spinning would stop. BB looked at me and I could tell from the confused look on his face I didn't look good. I sat bolt upright grabbed the emergency use potty and threw up in it. And again. And again. It was 1:16am.

I sat on the edge of BB's bed willing the room to stop spinning so I could take the potty downstairs to get rid of the contents of my stomach. I looked at BB sleeping peacefully and knew I had to go before I woke him. I stumbled down the stairs and into the bathroom just in time to throw up again. It was 1:29am.

I'm not sure what happened next. Somewhere in the midst of sleep deprivation and the room spinning I have blocked out the next few hours. I know I made it back to bed and assume I fell into a blissful sleep, or maybe I just passed out with exhaustion in the bathroom and slept walked back to bed.

I felt fine when I woke up, laughed at how Flyfour wanted to know why I hadn't told him (Well he was asleep! Did he want me to wake him to tell him I was ill?) and got on with my day. Until about an hour ago when I suddenly realised that the world was spinning again and I felt sick.

I hate being sick.
