Reduce Bingo Wings with skin689®

I’m always learning something new about my body and the types of products to use, I was recently contacted by Word of Mouth Communication to try one of their client’s new products. It’s a product that I have never thought to try until now after researching the brand and product.

The product I’m speaking about is Firm Skin Upper Arms from skin689®, an emulsion especially designed for the skin of the upper arms that catalyzes energy metabolism and breakdown of fatty acids.

I’ve been trying it for a couple of weeks now and thought it would be the perfect time to introduce you to skin689® and their products. Before getting to my review of their Firm Skin Upper Arms, I thought I would speak about skin689®, a brand from Switzerland.

How to have a good night’s sleep

A good night’s sleep is incredibly important for health.

Sleep is such a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health and physical health. Unfortunately, it can be hard to get to sleep to have a good nights, recently I have really been struggling with my sleep.

My sleeping pattern is all over the place. Sometimes I can climb into bed and drift off within seconds but other evenings, my brain just won’t switch off! I can then be awake for a further two even three hours. I am one of those people that will be grouchy and horrible in the morning so I need that important sleep!

Today, I’m sharing with you my steps to follow to help
fall asleep quickly and effortlessly.

Monthly Goals // July 2018

We’re already halfway through the year, which means it’s less than six months until Christmas! Can you believe it? I love writing these Monthly Goals as it helps me to be on target for my Personal and Blogging Goals. I feel without them I would forget and go off track, there’s nothing worse than getting to the end of the year and not achieving the Goals you set out at the beginning.

Today I will be reflecting on the Goals I set myself for June and creating some new ones for July. June has definitely been a great month and things have been just a little busy with a couple of car shows and visiting Plymouth. I swear I have not stopped and it’s gone so quick to think it’s now July. You can learn all about what I’ve been loving throughout June here.

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

Monthly Favourites // June 2018

Where on earth did June go!? When the time comes to write my Monthly Favourites, it always feels like yesterday that I was writing the previous month. June has always been a great month, it’s that time of year when your feet don’t seem to touch the floor there always seems to be something going on. Looking back, every weekend I have been out and about, which is a great problem to have, especially after so long of not being able to do anything.

I’m really excited to share my Favourites with you but with the power of social media, I’m sure you’ve already seen most of what I’m going to share with you.

Keeping Organised as a Blogger

One very important life skill is knowing how to keep yourself organised, if you lack organisation, you’ll easily become overwhelmed and your work could start suffering. This skill is one of the most important things to blogging, whether you’re a new or aspiring blogger, keeping yourself organised can help you to keep track of everything. According to a lot of people that know me, I’m very organised!

I’m always being told I’m an organised person and they would kill to be organised themselves, I also get asked how I do it. I have always done this and found the correct ways to allow myself to be organised, I truly think without being organised I would be lost and wouldn’t know where to start and probably would forget things.

Since January, I have been at least four posts ahead of schedule, meaning over the weekend – when I have free time and I’m not working – I don’t have to blog because the posts have been written, photos taken and everything is scheduled! I love doing this as at the moment, my weekends are just a little busy, now this means I can have fun and don’t have to worry about An Ocean Glimmer.

LUSH Spring Haul

I think there’s a theme going on here, recently I visited Westgate in Oxford, a recently remodelled Shopping Centre. Now, it opened late last year, perfect timing for Christmas! For an exploration though, not good timing, I’m not a fan of busy and crowded places, I’ve said to Yasmine since I heard about it’s re-opening, we should go and visit. Finally, we had the opportunity to go visit!

I’m not going to go too much in depth about Westgate and my adventure there, as you’ll see from the title, this post isn’t about that. Some could say it’s about something so much better! That’s right I’m talking about LUSH, somewhere I’ve become addicted too since leaving Plymouth actually. We’re not lucky to have one in Aylesbury, our closest is either Oxford or Milton Keynes. Depending on what way you want to go!

Dead Sea Mud Mask from Ivy Beauty

It’s such a nice feeling when you enter a competition and you find out a few days later that you’ve won! I swear I go through stages of never winning, then I suddenly win everything I enter. Recently I came across With Love Yossy, a fashion, travel & lifestyle blog from Yossy. She shared her Affordable Oily & Acne Prone Care Routine, which featured Dead Sea Mud Mask from Ivy Beauty.

Not only was she gifted this Mud Mask but also hosted a competition in collaboration with Ivy Beauty. I know, you probably know where this going, I was the lucky competition winner and I was very happy to receive it! As well as trying this Mud Mask that Yossy spoke very highly of and mentioned it worked wonders for herself in tackling her oily and acne prone skin.
