Bomb Cosmetics Hawaiian Flower

Here we are, another post sharing my love for bath bombs, who could say no!? I take any opportunity to purchase bath bombs, at the moment, our collection is very full. You might just remember that I recently shared my thoughts on the 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar from Bomb Cosmetics, leading to us having a grand total of 24 bath bombs. We’re not even halfway through all of these!

When I purchased the Advent Calendar, I actually received a free gift, the Hawaiian Flower Gift Pack. I was amazed to see it added to my basket, who doesn’t love a good freebie? This also meant I was getting more for my money than the 12 bath bombs in the Advent Calendar. This is one of the reasons I adore Bomb Cosmetics, their collections are impressive and you receive free goodies.

Must-See Movies of 2019

Around this time last year, I shared my Must-See Movies of 2018. I am such a film buff, I adore anything from family and action to fantasy and sci-fi. 2018 was a great year for movies, some of my favourites were Deadpool 2, Avengers: Infinity War and Venom, they really killed it with all the movies. Some failed at the box office whereas others were a massive hit, I’m looking at you Black Panther.

For 2019, I thought I would do the same and share with you my Must-See Movies of 2019 because let me tell you now, there are some big ones coming out this year! Also, I think 2019 will be the year I go back to my childhood, you’ll find out in a moment what I mean by that. There is definitely a long list of movies for 2019, I’ve had to control myself and limit this list to eight. If I went anymore, we would be here for weeks.

Fancy a Brew? Shibui Tea* Review

[AD GIFTED]

I love a good old fashioned cup of tea, the standard is alright but the growing trend of herbal and fruit tea is truly amazing. I’m always keen to try new flavours and when you add fruit to the mix, it really livens up the mood. Tea can also be healthy with added vitamins to help you stay on your A game. I recently fell in love with T plus, the only tea to deliver you vitamins in one super little teabag.

Recently Shibui Tea gifted me a few flavours from their pyramid bag range to try and I’m pleased to say it’s time for me to share my thoughts and feelings. But first, who are Shibui Tea?

2019 Blogging Goals

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.

Recently I have really been struggling to have a good nights sleep, I’m not sure what’s happened but I needed to change this. I was recently approached by Bedtime Bliss who gifted me their Bamboo* and Cotton Sleep Mask* to trial. It’s been a couple of weeks now, I can’t believe how amazing these are!

Monthly Goals // February 2019

It’s February, can you believe how quick the year is going? I have had a lovely January, I hope the past month has treated you well. Today I am going to be reflecting on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of January. I love reflecting and creating new Goals each month, there’s something about it that makes me more determined to achieve them.

There are no resolutions for me, it’s all about setting Goals to succeed throughout the year. My Monthly Goals always relate to the bigger picture of my Personal Goals and Blogging Goals for the year. I love creating new Goals, it’s just something about them, it also makes sure you’re on target and also it’s helpful to keep remembering the bigger picture and those Goals.

My Love for Comic Books

One of my main loves of being a blogger is being able to speak about anything and everything in one place. An Ocean Glimmer is a place for me to share my thoughts and favourites, to be honest, to share pretty much anything. Today’s post is no different, I try and bring a variety, whether that’s beauty, motorsports and entertainment. You might not know this but I adore comic books!

I have loved reading comic books for long as I remember, over the years, I have taken a really liken to them. Who doesn’t love a comic book!? I would definitely call myself a comic book geek, to be honest, a geek in general. Some people like sports and others like music, for me anything geeky is a must. There are so many reasons to love comic books, from the creativity and characters to how unique the storylines are.
