Introduction: Mål Paper*

[AD GIFTED]

I did mention I wanted to share more stationery orientated posts on An Ocean Glimmer and I’m doing just that! I am always so proud of my blog, even more so when companies reach out to me and that’s the reason behind today’s post. It’s an introduction post to Mål Paper, a stationery company that produces stylish and simplistic stationery that helps to be more productive by focusing our minds on the most important tasks.

Their range of products is the result of seeking a solution to solve the common problem of jumping from one task to the next, without prioritising them or even completing the previous task. They were tired of having countless ‘to-do’ lists on notepads, notebooks and journals that did nothing more than complicate goals and tasks further, to the point of feeling overwhelmed and uninspired to hold themselves accountable.

My Favourite Moments Since Becoming a Blogger

As the day, month and year go by, we are creating memories and moments, I’m such a big advocate of creating moments to remember. It has become easier to create memories thanks to the digital change, I remember growing up and having to wait weeks until you could view the images you snapped. Now all smartphones are cable of showing the image instantly.

Today, I thought I would do a special post, I have been blogging since October 2013, meaning this year I will be celebrating six years of An Ocean Glimmer. I thought I would go back through the archive of An Ocean Glimmer and share with you a couple of my favourite moments since becoming a blogger. Now grab yourself a cuppa and a couple of snacks, this is going to be a long one!

Beautiful Prints with Beauty and Bentley*

[AD GIFTED]

Today I am going to be introducing you to Beauty and Bentley, an Etsy store for Digital Downloads, Beautiful Prints and Home Decor. Beauty and Bentley was born from a passion to build something of her own. The woman behind Beauty and Bentley is the lovely Emma Ferguson, she created this hustle to help inspire and motivate women to find their inner girl boss.

She now creates motivational art prints and planner printables to help women be positive and take simple steps to improve their lives! Emma has such a good mixture of Digital Downloads, from Zodiac Constellation to Hello Spring and Coffee Blog Sleep Repeat. I swear there is something for everyone and to brighten up their day. Beauty and Bentley is a way for Emma to be creative and offer something to others.

Emma recently reached out to review and receive some of her prints, I received three different ones, Don’t be like the rest, But First Coffee and Blogging in Progress. They’re all so pretty and great addition to any room! I need to add all three to the collection on my wall to remind me to be positive. They’re all very similar in style and work well together, they’re perfect to put into a frame and hang up in your blogging zone.

I love the colours and each print just screams blogger, Rose Gold and flowers, what more could you dream of? There are so many inspiring quotes, they definitely deserve a place on your wall to remind you and get through the day. I have found my college to be amazing and puts a smile on my face whenever I look up. These can all be a perfect gift for any occasion, I know so many people who would appreciate one of these prints.

What I love about Beauty and Bentley is that some of the prints are Digital Downloads, meaning you instantly have them and can print however many you require. This is especially useful when it comes to the range of Planner Printables, you can purchase ones from Weekly Meal to a 2019 Calendar. They all follow the same pattern and them so would be that extra special addition to the prints you already have.

Make sure you check out Beauty and Bentley for that perfect print to lighten up any room. I would really appreciate you showing the love to Emma. You can also keep up to date by following her on Twitter and Instagram. She has even got her own beauty and lifestyle blog named Beauty and Bentley, here you can find great reviews of beauty products and helpful blogger 101 content.

I would love to thank Emma for gifting me these three prints, they’re all beautiful and are pride of place on my wall. Emma even provided me with a discount code you will receive 25% off your order on Beauty and Bentley now. What are you waiting for!? Check out her Etsy store now.

Thank-you for reading! What’s your favourite Digital Download?

Monthly Goals // June 2019

Goodbye May, Hello June!

I hope you’ve had a lovely start to June. As it’s the beginning of a new month, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of May. Then create new Goals for June, I’m really excited about the upcoming month. I already have loads planned! I don’t think I’m home for one single weekend, it’s going to be a long but fun month.

As I explained recently in my 2019 Personal Goals Update, creating new Goals each month helps you to stay on top of what you want to achieve for the year. If you want to see what I got up to in May, I have shared my adventures in my Monthly Favourites // May 2019 here. It’s great to review and reflect each month, sometimes you even forget what you’ve done.

Monthly Favourites // May 2019

Hello, there June!

Can you believe it’s already June? Where on earth is 2019 going!? I’m so excited for the upcoming month as it’s getting warmer, I adore the warm weather. It makes you want to get out of the house and go on adventures. It’s the beginning of June and I’ve already got something planned for each weekend. I’m going to be exhausted by the time July comes around.

Now is the perfect time to reflect on the previous month, I love doing this by sharing my Monthly Favourites with you! It’s time to reflect on what happened in May. It was a beautiful month, my trip home felt like forever away. As I’m writing this, I’m actually there again! On this occasion, its a quick break and we’re down due to personal reasons.

2019 Blogging Goals Update

It’s great to have a Goal in mind, not just a daily or weekly one but yearly as well. I love creating Goals, I feel so inspired and it’s a great way to continue achieving. Back in January, I shared with you my 2019 Blogging Goals, here I outlined exactly what I wanted to achieve over the course of the year. Now we’re in May, it’s the perfect time to reflect on my Blogging Goals and provide an update on progress.

I know I share my Monthly Goals but this doesn’t show the overall year story. When I’m setting my Monthly Goals, I try and keep my 2019 Goals in mind. It can be hard achieving your Goals, especially if it’s one you want to achieve in one year. Your Goals can be a lot easier to achieve if you think about them monthly. If you don’t create Monthly Goals, I would recommend starting now.

Shall we begin with the update on my 2019 Blogging Goals?
