In the modern society, our lives are more fast paced than ever before.
Longer work hours, advanced technology, constantly raising standards and new social pressures are putting us under ever increasing levels of stress. In this world, feeling stressed is something so common. One of the best ways to find out about how to de-stress is reading articles online. It’s helpful if you’re unsure and gives you new ideas on how to de-stress.
Everyone in the world experiences stress, and although stress is part of life, it’s not healthy to feel stressed all the time. Being stressed makes you feel less energised and less optimistic, which is not good. With my work life and personal life merging between the two, now is a perfect time to evaluate and de-stress. I have been feeling it recently and I don’t want you to do the same.
If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s I love stationery! Everything from notebooks and pens to planners and journals. Also, who could say no to pretty and cute stationery? I don’t show you my love enough here on An Ocean Glimmer, I’m going to try once in a while to create a stationery roundup, haul call it what you will. Maybe even once a month!
For today, I’m going to be sharing with you a small collection of stationery. Recently I entered a giveaway from Soffy | The Mum Affairs and I won! Of course, I couldn’t say no to entering a stationery giveaway, especially as there were some beautiful items. Before we get into what I received, I just wanted to thank Soffy for hosting the giveaway and the beautiful items.
Goodbye March, Hello April!
How was your March? I hope you had a lovely start to Spring. Today I am going to be reflecting on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of March. Then creating new Goals for the upcoming month of April. Creating new Goals each month helps you to stay on top of what you want to achieve for the year. There’s something about it that makes me more determined to achieve them.
Hello there April!
I am so excited for the upcoming month. I have some great things planned, but before we can move forward to the new month, now is a great 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 March. It’s not until the end of the month that I realised exactly what I’ve been up to and the products I’ve been loving.

It’s easy to concentrate on all of the things I don’t have in life and be upset and bitter about it, but I don’t and I’m not. I’m grateful for the things I do have and have had in my life. Gratitude is one of the very best ways to improve your mood, it can be hard to focus more on the positive things in life. As humans, we will always pay more attention to the negative over the positive.
It can be hard to believe everything will be okay when you’re having a hard time. Today I wanted to write a post on the things I’m grateful for because there is so much to be grateful for and we can often forget how lucky we are to have what we have. With all the awful stuff going on in the world right now, I thought there was no better time to share it than the present.

Now I know to most people believe we’ve had Spring for a couple of weeks. For me, I believe 20 March 2019 is the first day Spring. We’ve had an interesting start to March, with Storm Freya gracing us with her presence. We’re on Day 6 of the Astronomical Spring, I thought I would continue the theme of Self-Care and looking after yourself this Spring, by sharing a couple of Self-Care ideas.
Last week, I shared with you my face mask collection, a perfect addition to any pamper evening. Spring is the perfect time to reevaluate your routine and add in new products, also there’s something about Spring and the freshness of everything. Animals are being born, flowers are blooming and it’s the perfect time to think about yourself. Spring is a magical time of the year.

Goodbye February, Hello March!
I hope February treated you well and that you had a lovely month. Today I am going to be reflecting on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of February. Then creating new Goals for the upcoming month, I love reflecting and creating new Goals each month, there’s something about it that makes me more determined to achieve them.
Creating Goals for each month allows you to be on target while keeping your yearly Goals in mind. Your Goals can be a lot easier to achieve if you think about them monthly. Each of my monthly Goals are created with my bigger Goals in mind, for the hope that one day I would achieve everything. If you don’t create monthly Goals, I would recommend starting now.
I can’t believe it’s March! Before we move forward to the new month though, now is a good time to reflect on the previous month and what happened. There is no better way of doing that than with my Monthly Favourites, it’s time to reflect on what happened in February. It’s incredible what you get up to in a month as well as the new products you are exposed to.

Last month, I shared my 2019 Personal Goals, it’s now time for my 2019 Blogging Goals. A range of Goals that I would love to achieve of the course of 2019 with my blog and social media platforms. Each month, my Monthly Goals will reflect my overall Goals, recently I’ve been pushing myself on Instagram and Twitter just to reach these Goals. While incorporating them monthly to my Goals.
2018 was a good year for An Ocean Glimmer, I reached 15k all-time views, I was close to reaching 1k Instagram followers, was a couple of days out and reached it in January. I have found some amazing people in the blogging community and attended my first blogger event with The Body Shop. Onwards and upwards in 2019, it’s going to be a good year for An Ocean Glimmer.
