If you’ve been following An Ocean Glimmer for a little while, you might know that I’ve been on an interesting acne journey. I’ve tried a range of products but unfortunately, nothing seems to work. I see minor changes but nothing that clears up my skin. Now, I know acne doesn’t go away but if I can combat and reduce it, then I’m happy with that! I have truly tried most products on the market.
I know before you can go anywhere with your Doctors, you need to at least try most products. I feel like I’ve tried most of the main products on the market but I know some health or beauty clinics have acne products as well. Yasmine visits one near Aylesbury for her laser hair removal, while at her last appointment she noticed they have acne treatments and recommended I check them out.
Have I ever said how much I adore Spring? This season makes me happy! I swear this time of year does wonders for everything! With longer and warmer days it’s no surprise really. Normally this would also mean more adventures… but I’m sure you all know how well that is going! I’m not going to mention the thing that shall not be mentioned – I’m sure you all know what I’m talking about.
Goodbye December! Hello January!
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. Can you believe January is here? I still cannot believe where 2019 went. I wish you all the best for 2020. I have everything crossed for a great start to the year. I don’t have so much planned, but it’s nice to have a quiet one once in a while! It’s 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 December.
Hello, there June!
Can you believe it’s already June? Where on earth is 2019 going!? I’m so excited for the upcoming month as it’s getting warmer, I adore the warm weather. It makes you want to get out of the house and go on adventures. It’s the beginning of June and I’ve already got something planned for each weekend. I’m going to be exhausted by the time July comes around.
Now is the perfect 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 May. It was a beautiful month, my trip home felt like forever away. As I’m writing this, I’m actually there again! On this occasion, its a quick break and we’re down due to personal reasons.

Goodbye April, Hello May!
I hope you’ve had a lovely start to May, is the month treating you well? As it’s the beginning of a new month, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of April. Then create new Goals for May, I’m really excited about the upcoming month. I already have loads planned! May will surely be a great month with everything I have planned.
As I explained recently in my 2019 Personal Goals Update, creating new Goals each month helps you to stay on top of what you want to achieve for the year. If you want to see what I got up to in April, I have shared my adventures in my Monthly Favourites // April 2019 here. It’s great to review and reflect each month, sometimes you even forget what you’ve done.

It’s great to have a Goal in mind, not just a daily or weekly one but yearly as well. I love creating Goals, I feel so inspired and it’s a great way to continue achieving. Back in January, I shared with you my 2019 Personal Goals, here I outlined exactly what I wanted to achieve over the course of the year. Now we’re nearly in May, it’s the perfect time to reflect on my Personal Goals and provide an update on progress.
I know I share my Monthly Goals but this doesn’t show the overall year story. When I’m setting my Monthly Goals, I try and keep my 2019 Goals in mind. It can be hard achieving your Goals, especially if it’s one you want to achieve in one year. Your Goals can be a lot easier to achieve if you think about them monthly. If you don’t create Monthly Goals, I would recommend starting now.

I love creating new Goals, I feel soo inspired and it’s a great way to continue achieving. Each month I reflect on the Goals I set the previous month and create Goals for the upcoming month. It’s January, the perfect time to create Goals for the upcoming year, these are things I would love to achieve over the year.
I keep these Goals in mind when setting my Monthly Goals, using each month as a push for my 2019 Goals. There are some big and small things I would love to achieve, I did really well throughout 2018 and I am proud of myself. I feel 2019 will be a good year for myself and of course Yasmine.
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:

I hope December is treating you well. For today’s post I wanted to talk about Christmas Spirit, those two words mean a lot to different people, I wanted to share what they mean to me. I don’t get into the spirit until 1st December, this might be shocking to a few. How can someone choose when to get into the spirit? I hear you ask. I have always had this rule, the decorations do not appear until on or after 1st December.
With a birthday at the end of November, I like to have a bit of breathing space after celebrating and enjoying to then get excited for Christmas. I know some people who start a week before December, shops are even selling cards and decorations as early as October! I much prefer to have 24 days of extreme Christmas spirit than have nearly a month and a half of watered down Christmas spirit.
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.
