I adore supporting small businesses, throughout 2018 I supported just a couple, Fizzy Smelts, Geeky Melts and EllesDoodleBox to name a few. 2019 is going to be no different, I’m starting the year off right by supporting Leviko Designs, an independent store located in Edinburgh. Louise, the owner and designer of the jewellery, produces handmade bespoke quality pieces.
They can be tailor-made to your set specifications and are all presented in a beautiful gift box. Louise established Leviko Designs in 2016 following the birth of her first child. Looking for a creative outlet she was introduced to the Japanese Art of Kumihimo and quickly fell in love with the variety, versatility and relaxation which comes from it.
I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I posted the This Time Next Year Tag 2018 on An Ocean Glimmer. What is the This Time Next Year Tag I hear you say? Well, it’s a tag created by Sarah Lemmon, aka Little Reader, it’s basically inspired by a British TV Show where you see people present their goals for next year. Then it flashes forward 365 days later to see if they have achieved them.
This is how the tag will work:
- Thank the person who tagged you
- Write your goals for next year
- Write how you’re going to achieve your goals
- Tag at least 5 of your blogger friends to share their goals
- Then if you wish in 365 days write a post for everyone to see if you have been successful or not!
I’m really excited to share with you today, what I received for Christmas, now I don’t want this to be a ‘show off’ post. I want it to be a reflection of my Christmas and thankful for what I received. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! Mine was lovely, spending it with Yasmine’s family in Plymouth.
There was a good mixture of receiving money and gifts, I swear as you get older it’s harder for gifts. I really struggled last year, when I was creating my lists I wanted to include items that I needed rather than wanting just for the hell of it. With that in mind, I think this list is a good reflection of that.
Enough chit-chat, let’s get started:

Happy January, Happy New Year!
I hope you had a lovely Christmas! Can you believe January is here? January brings with it a New Year, I’m soo excited for 2019. Before we move forward to January though, I need to reflect on December. There is no better way of doing that than my Monthly Favourites. The month has been amazing, I’ve made some amazing memories with friends and family over the past 31 days.
Missed my November Favourites? Head over here to see what I was loving
during the month.
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.
