Blogmas Day 13 // Book Review – 88˚ North

I am really excited to share with you today’s book review! As I said on Monday, this week you’re really lucky as there will be two book reviews on An Ocean Glimmer. Monday I reviewed Storyland by Bryan W. Alaspa and today I will be reviewing 88˚ North by J.F. Kirwan. If you’ve been following An Ocean Glimmer for a while, you’ll know that I reviewed the second book in the Nadia Laksheva Spy Thriller Series, 37 Hours.

I would definitely recommend reading my review before going any further with this one, as it will help you to understand the book. I’m really proud of how much I’ve read recently, this is really helping with my goals each month. Just like 37 Hours, I am taking part in the 88˚ North Blog Tour hosted by Neverland Blog Tours. Today I will be sharing the day with The Writing Garnet and Read, Write, Inspire.

Blogmas Day 11 // Book Review – Storyland

If you like reading, you are in luck this week! Not one but two book reviews are appearing on An Ocean Glimmer. Now, this was actually done by accident! As you know, I normally take part in Blog Tours hosted by Neverland Blog Tours but I was recently approached by Emma Green, meaning I now have the opportunity to read Storyland by Bryan W. Alaspa this week. The second book review will be on Wednesday, where I will be reviewing 88˚ North by J.F. Kirwan.

I am very excited to review this book as I’ve previously reviewed the second book in the Nadia Laksheva Spy Thriller Series, 37 Hours which was amazing! I would recommend reading this here, before my review on Wednesday, to catch up and understand what’s happened. Now, I will save that for Wednesday, let’s get on with the book review for Storyland. I was actually quite surprised when approached with this book, as it seems a little different from the normal books I read.

I didn’t know what to expect, to be honest, but was looking forward to it! I am officially the first stop on the Storyland Blog Tour and I am sharing the day with The Organised Mum, who is also called Gemma!

Blogmas Day 9 // Creoly Th[ink] Dot Grid Notebook

Good evening one and all! I really hope you’re having a great December, it’s definitely starting to get a lot colder, I seem to be wrapping up in more layers each day I go out. For today’s Blogmas post, I am sharing with you the Th[ink] Dot Grid Notebook from Creoly. This is my second collaboration with Creoly, after becoming a part of their “Early Bird” Review Club.

My first collaboration I was lucky enough to review their Black Marble Pen Duo, so it’s nice to have something different on this occasion and review a notebook. Now, this notebook is no means fancy but it’s enough to personalise. I’ve been wanting to create my own Bullet Journal for a while now but I’ve never really thought if I would benefit from one.

xtava Pro-Satin Infrared Straightener Review

I find that a lot of people feel my hair is straight, whereas myself I find it to be very fluffy! I don’t like not blow drying my hair, as it’s quite long so for it to naturally dry, it seems to take forever. The day after my hair is very fluffy and this is what I hate about my hair! But this is where hair straightener comes in, I don’t always straighten my hair as I don’t seem to have the time. I’ve been using the same Babyliss straighteners since I was in school, so it was time to invest in a new pair. I recently received the xtava Pro-Satin Infrared Straightener to review here on An Ocean Glimmer.

I was a little unsure at first as I’ve never heard of the brand before, so I didn’t know if they would be any good! I’m not sure about you but I always buy from brands that I know I can trust, as I said my previous hair straighteners were Babyliss and my hairdryer is from TRESemme. I looked up the brand after putting my order through and it seems like a lot of bloggers are speaking very good things about xtava! Which meant I was looking forward to getting my hairs on my xtava straighteners.

Book Review // Deadly Burial

If you are a regular visitor to An Ocean Glimmer, you’ll know just how much I adore reading! I’m not going to bore you too much because I am super excited to share with you the book that I’ve been reading this month. I really enjoy being a part of the Blog Tours hosted by Jenny Marston over at Neverland Blog Tours. Every month I am introduced to a different author and different book, that before hand I might have never wanted to try.

So far I have yet to come across an author I have previously reviewed. This month, I am the twenty-third stop on the Deadly Burial Blog Tour, a novel by Jon Richter. I am normally involved in one-week blog tours or something called a Weekend Blitz when it’s over the weekend, but never a two-week blog tour. This is very exciting for myself and all the other bloggers who are sharing the love for Jon Richter’s novel.

Kirwan, the second book in the Nadia Laksheva Spy Thriller Series. I am really excited to share with you, my thoughts on 37 Hours and today I am sharing the day with Sarah over at Sunshine Sarah xo.

We are now in a generation where technology is everything, we are mostly always on either our PCs or phones, the problem with this is medical problems could start to form. One of the main injuries is RSI – Repetitive Strain Injury, this is the general term used to describe the pain felt in muscles, nerves, and tendons caused by repetitive movement and overuse.

Since finishing university, I have had a lot of time on my hands, so I’ve been using this time to read!
