I’m really happy for December to be here as it’s finally Christmas! I’m sure some people are sick of Christmas already with shops having decorations up since September but I always start from the first of December. I have a couple of exciting things coming up but primarily I cannot wait to travel back home to Plymouth. It’s going to be strange not celebrating Christmas with my family.
Today I am going to be reflecting on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of November. I love reflecting and creating new Goals each month, there’s something about it that makes me more determined to achieve them. With Christmas around the corner, I’m excited for the upcoming month. Also, a few of my Goals for December are blogging based.
Hello December! Goodbye November!
The past month has been kind to me, I’ve still been very busy and enjoying a lot of different things. November has been a great month, it’s always one of my favourites months as I always seem to have many different things planned. Before we go full steam ahead for December, let’s first review November as I said above, there’s quite a lot to share with you!
One thing first, happy December! I’m so excited for the upcoming month, I am a massive fan of Christmas and this festive period. Being able to spend time with my family is great. I’m also going back home to Plymouth to spend Christmas with Yasmine’s family. Plymouth is always great at Christmas, I just cannot wait. There are many exciting plans to get me into the festive spirit.

Can you believe December is here? I have been waiting for this month for what seems like forever! I am so excited about the upcoming month, I have a lot of things planned to help me get into the festive spirit and its Blogmas time as a blogger. If you’ve been with me here on An Ocean Glimmer for the past two years, you’ll know I’ve blogged every single day on the lead up to Christmas. I’m doing things a little different for 2018, last year I really struggled with ideas for the 24 days.
I’m doing 12 Days of Blogmas!
I recently got in touch with Samantha from always believe in a miracle suggesting we do an Autumn Box Swap! I’ve seen these posts floating around the blogosphere for a little while now and wanted to share it with Samantha. We’ve been friends for just over a year, we met online and have even met in Birmingham! I was so excited and couldn’t wait to get started.
Samantha shares a wonderful range of posts from beauty, lifestyle and travel as well as her journey through remission after being diagnosed with stage 2B Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a type of blood cancer. She also writes about relevant topics as a blogger such as What is DA & How to Improve it. The perfect way to keep up to date with Samantha is by following her on Twitter. I also adore every photo of hers! They are absolutely gorgeous so why not head over to Instagram and give her a follow.
I adore supporting small businesses, as described in my How to Support Small Businesses post one of the easiest ways to support is to blog about them. I recently received a couple of goodies from Geeky Melts, home of Geeky soy wax melts. I have been supporting Geeky Melts for a little while now, it’s been great to watch the store grow and add new products.
All of her products are handmade by herself, congratulations go out to her here as she does this around her two years old! People like this are just so inspiring nothing stops them from being creative and doing what they love. Geeky Melts is the brainchild of Laura, an all-around geek, zombie enthusiast and cat lady.
Geeky Melts are made from biodegradable soy wax and high-quality vegan fragrance oil. Only biodegradable glitter is used so the sparkles are guilt free. Most of Geeky Melts wax packaging is plastic free and compostable, and whenever possible Laura even reuses postal materials too.

I adore Autumn! It’s definitely my favourite season, there are a couple of special moments to celebrate in this season, including the big one my birthday. I have seen a couple of Autumn Tag in the blogosphere and had to complete one myself! I love these as they’re a great way to learn a bit more about someone and they definitely get your brain working.
Normally I am tagged to complete one myself but for this particular one, I came across it on another blog. I fell in love with the questions and just had to participate myself. Autumn is definitely a season that makes me all warm and fuzzy inside, there are so many reasons to love Autumn including autumnal fashion, cooler weather and chill nights in.
I’m always interested in trying new products, as long as it features my favourite scents, I will give it a go. An email recently dropped in my inbox from Kathleen Natural introducing their Mini Bubble Bath and Shower Gel with a request to review a collection of my choice. There are three different moods to choose from; Citrus Cheer, Tranquil Fields and Sensual Rose.
Kathleen has released mini size versions of their luxurious, nourishing, delicate body care collection including Roll-on Fragrance Oil and Mini Bubble Bath and Shower Gel. Each collection is scented with three blended, pure essential oils – a top note, heart note and base note – to cover every mood. Of course, a travel size is perfect for on the move.
I chose Tranquil Fields because not only do I love Lavender and Vanilla scents, I wanted something to lift my mood and prepare me for the cold and horrible weather this Winter.
I adore checking out what’s inside people’s bag, in my time as a blogger I have never shared what’s in my own bag. I thought with the new season I should share something new! I always take a bag with me whenever I go out, whether that’s a small clutch bag or a backpack. I’m always changing up my bag but thankfully recently I’ve stuck with a leather backpack. Brown is normally not my colour but I fell in love.
I have found that it still goes with most of my outfits. It’s quite a small backpack but it fits everything perfectly and really, I don’t take that much out with me. A lot of the things I have within my bag, don’t really change season to season if I’m honest. I always try to keep myself prepared for anything, I try and have the essentials with me as you never know when you’ll need them!
Here’s what’s in my bag for autumn time.

I’m really happy for November to be here as there are so many great things planned, I’m not as busy as October but it’s still going to be a cracking month. It’s going to be excited over the coming weeks as there are a couple of things lined up. For starters, November is my birthday month, with a fun action packed weekend and I will be at Silverstone for a murder mystery.
I have been able to achieve most of my Goals I set at the beginning of October I have proved that if I put my mind to it, I can achieve. Here we are again to first reflect on my previous Goals and then set some new ones for November. I visited Castle Combe with my MG Rover family, picked a pumpkin for the first time and wandered around Milton Keynes.
Hello November! Goodbye October!
The past month has been kind to me, I’ve still been very busy and enjoying a lot of different things. At moments October has felt a long month but now looking back, it’s gone really quickly! October has always been a good month, for me, Autumn kicks off and I can start enjoying the holidays.
Before we go full steam ahead for November, let’s first review October as I said above, there’s quite a lot to share with you! One thing first, I hope you all enjoyed Halloween and hopefully had a load of goodies. I’m really excited for November as it’s my birthday month! Even though it’s getting colder, I’ve still got exciting outdoor plans.
