I don’t know about you, but there’s just a few competition on at the moment over on Twitter and Instagram, I love entering these, you never know if you’re going to win! There’s nothing to lose but you could gain a lot, recently I entered a giveaway hosted by bbloggers to win the Joyous Vibes Holiday Kit from MIYU Beauty.

I was so excited to get my hands on this kit as I’ve heard good things about MIYU Beauty and with us heading into a New Year, you deserve a pamper evening. Before going into my thoughts on the Holiday Kit, I thought I would let you know a little about MIYU Beauty, as before this giveaway, I didn’t know much about them.

Today is the day that I am going to be looking back at the Goals I set for February as well as setting myself some new ones for March. February has definitely been a good month, not only for my Goals but life in general, there’s been a lot going on.

I’m really busy at the moment with visiting family, taking adventures and just enjoying life if you want to know more about what I have been up to in February, you should definitely check out my Favourites! March is definitely going to be no different, I love reflecting on my goals as it definitely gives me the motivation I require as well as making sure I am actually achieving what I want to.

Before I set myself some new Goals for March, let’s reflect on my February Goals!

February Favourites

I don’t know about you, but February has definitely not been as long as January felt, I know there’s only 28 days compared to the 31 for January but man, it lasted forever! Of course, with it now being March, it is time for my February Favourites. I’m really excited to share with you my favourites, this month has definitely been a lot more active than January was.

Missed my January Favourites? Head over here to see what I was loving
during the month.

Now I’m no longer struggling with money like I was in January, I was able to do a lot more, not everything that I would have liked to though. The weather is definitely brightening up and we’re getting more light in a day, meaning days are lasting longer. I can’t wait for it to start warming up, this means I’ll be able to spend more time outside, rather than being cooped up.

Shall we get started with my February Favourites?

Target Dark Circles with eyewake

Today’s post is sponsored by eyewake, as they kindly gifted me their Unique Formula Collagen Gel in return for an honest review. My eyes are one area that I neglect, as I have no product in my morning and evening routine that specifically targets that area. If I’m honest, I’ve never really had problems under my eyes, that’s why I’ve never thought to purchase something for under my eyes.

With this Collagen Gel though, even if you don’t have dark circles or puffy skin, it will help to prevent unattractive wrinkles. I was happy with everything I read about eyewake, so I thought why not try this for myself to see if it does what it says it will. I was able to go through the ordering process myself, I was reimbursed the cost of eyewake by Lucy.

LUSH Christmas Haul

For Blogmas 2017, I did a first impression post for LUSH Cosmetics, now I know what you are thinking! Gemma, you have only just tried LUSH!? Well, before moving to Aylesbury, I had no bath only a shower, but now I am lucky enough to be able to have a bath every weekend. I won’t explain too much here as you can read all about why in my impression post. Myself and Yasmine have now become addicted to LUSH bath bombs!

As you know, I went down to Plymouth with Yasmine to see in the New Year with her family and our friends. Meaning we couldn’t come back to Aylesbury without some LUSH treats. I was able to take advantage of their January sale, where they had their Christmas products on 50% off! Great right! Everyone went a bit crazy for this sale, I don’t really blame them as you’re saving yourself a lot.

I know it’s a little late now for a LUSH Christmas Haul, but seeing as I didn’t actually buy them until AFTER Christmas, I’ve only just finished using them! Now, shall we get started with this small LUSH Haul?

2018 Blogging Goals

Last month, I shared with you my 2018 Goals, I love creating posts like this as for me it gives me motivation for the upcoming year. Here I planned out the things I would like to achieve, I try and keep these quite simple and actually made them achievable! Nothing worse than picking a goal and not being able to achieve it during your desired time frame. This post though is all about my 2018 Blogging Goals.

I’ve really upped my blogging game over the last few months and I’ve got everything crossed that I can achieve a lot in 2018 if I put my mind to it! I was going to include these goals in my 2018 Goals post, but I felt it was better to separate them, else the post would have been quite long and I’m not sure how many of you would actually read that much. I finished 2017 reasonably good, even with not being 100% focused on my blog.

I feel 2018 might just be a good year for An Ocean Glimmer, shall we get started with my 2018 Blogging Goals?

Bomb Cosmetics Palm Springs

I’ve got a little special post for you today, you know how I’ve only just started using LUSH bath bombs, I know it’s only taken me like forever! But now I’ve come across another bath bomb company, Bomb Cosmetics. I’ve heard a lot about this company, a lot of good things, so I was really excited to try their products. LUSH has some amazing products, don’t get me wrong, but I feel like they are a little expensive.

So I’ve been looking for an alternative that is a reasonable price, as well as amazing quality, something similar to LUSH. If you’ve been following An Ocean Glimmer for a little while, you’ll know that I tried the Wilko own bath bombs, I spoke about them in my August Favourites. But they weren’t actually very exciting, they just turned the water a different colour.

I Can Do This Blog Planner by Dot Creates

It was around this time last year, that I introduced you to Dot Creates, I was on the search for a planner to help me to be organised as a blogger. I wanted everything to be in one place for me, to be able to plan out the variety of content but also have a diary so I know what’s happening when. I purchased the Ultimate Blog Planner and after falling in love with the planner, I decided to purchase another one.

For 2018 though, it’s been a little different, Danielle Timcke, the amazing owner and creator of Dot Creates wanted our help. She enlisted the help of bloggers to create a fresh Blog Planner that featured things that we wanted. There was a couple of different surveys that she planned to understand what we wanted to include inside and how we wanted it to be designed.

There was a lot of forward and backwards, but I was very happy to the see the final results, which I couldn’t not purchase once she released it!

JABbox January 2018

I have definitely missed talking about subscription boxes on An Ocean Glimmer, during 2017 I regularly received Infinity Crates, an entertainment and geek-filled box, but once I moved to Aylesbury and money became tight, I had to stop this monthly luxury. I was very lucky enough to receive the JABbox from Just Add Blog, a monthly subscription service for bloggers.

This service has been created to help your blog grow as each month you receive 5-7 different digital items, straight to your inbox. What makes JABbox even better is that all the content has been created by fellow bloggers, photographers and creative minded people. There’s a wide variety of items you could receive, anything from stock photos, how-to guides and fonts to printables and planners.

I received the Designer Rose Gold Bracelet, it soo pretty and definitely adds a good vibe to your outfit.
