Happy Halloween! 🎃
I hope you’re all having a great day, eating a lot of sweets and getting ready for the trick or treaters. There’s nothing better than getting into the festive spirit than purchasing Autumnal scents. I have my Bath Bombs from Bomb Cosmetics, now the return of the Vanilla Pumpkin range from The Body Shop. I fell in love with this range last year and I’m so glad they’ve brought it back!
I am a massive fan of themed ranges from The Body Shop, this scent is great and they’re also killing it with their Christmas ranges. Definitely going to get my hands on one of those, unlike last year I knew I wanted to grab this range, there wasn’t nothing stopping me. Yasmine actually kindly brought me both the Shower Gel and Hand Cream when she visited Exeter, she knows me so well!
This time next week, you’ll have the carved pumpkins outside, a bowl full of sweets and trick or treaters knocking on the door, that’s right I’m talking about Halloween! This is one of my favourite holidays of the year and it just screams Autumn. I’m always intrigued by what brands bring out this time of year, there’s nothing better than getting into the spirit a little early.
Today I am sharing with you the Halloween range from Bomb Cosmetics, as you know I am a massive fan of Bath Bombs. I love how Bomb Cosmetics have brought out a selection of Halloween products, they’re really creative and valve for money, the perfect way to get you in the Halloween spirit. If you love Bath Bombs then this is definitely the post for you!
I am pretty addicted to purchasing bath products, bath time for me needs to be relaxing and there’s nothing better than dropping in a bath bomb. There are a lot of bath bombs to choose from and one of my favourite places to shop from is LUSH. Since trying my first bath bomb last December, I have surely become addicted and now I like picking up a small collection to treat myself.
In my Monthly Favourites // August, I shared with you my trip to Nottingham and the art trail Hoodwinked 2018 while wandering around I came across that oh so familiar scent of LUSH. I had to pop inside and see if there was anything new and exciting, I came across the Blooming Beautiful giftset that screamed Spring and relaxation. Nothing else took my fancy so Blooming Beautiful it was.
I think there’s a theme going on here, recently I visited Westgate in Oxford, a recently remodelled Shopping Centre. Now, it opened late last year, perfect timing for Christmas! For an exploration though, not good timing, I’m not a fan of busy and crowded places, I’ve said to Yasmine since I heard about it’s re-opening, we should go and visit. Finally, we had the opportunity to go visit!
I’m not going to go too much in depth about Westgate and my adventure there, as you’ll see from the title, this post isn’t about that. Some could say it’s about something so much better! That’s right I’m talking about LUSH, somewhere I’ve become addicted too since leaving Plymouth actually. We’re not lucky to have one in Aylesbury, our closest is either Oxford or Milton Keynes. Depending on what way you want to go!

I’m not a very me, me, me person but I do feel that it’s good to get to know the person behind a blog. Recently, I’ve done a few different posts to introduce myself to you, including Things I Love About Motorsports and Things That Make Me Happy. April is turning into the month of getting to know me, Gemma Bray, the girl behind An Ocean Glimmer and today is no different!
At the beginning of this month, I came across An A-Z of Me from Zoe Jackson over at Just Zoe. I fell in love with this post as I found it interesting to pick just one thing that related to each of the 26 letters of the alphabet. Now, it seems like a semi-easy thing to do but I’ve got this feeling that when I actually get stuck in, it won’t be that easy… Like right now, I can’t think of anything for the last couple of letters.
Shall we get started with An A-Z of Me? Continue reading “An A-Z of An Ocean Glimmer!”
I don’t know about you, but February has definitely not been as long as January felt, I know there’s only 28 days compared to the 31 for January but man, it lasted forever! Of course, with it now being March, it is time for my February Favourites. I’m really excited to share with you my favourites, this month has definitely been a lot more active than January was.
Missed my January Favourites? Head over here to see what I was loving
during the month.
Now I’m no longer struggling with money like I was in January, I was able to do a lot more, not everything that I would have liked to though. The weather is definitely brightening up and we’re getting more light in a day, meaning days are lasting longer. I can’t wait for it to start warming up, this means I’ll be able to spend more time outside, rather than being cooped up.
Shall we get started with my February Favourites?

I’ve got a little special post for you today, you know how I’ve only just started using LUSH bath bombs, I know it’s only taken me like forever! But now I’ve come across another bath bomb company, Bomb Cosmetics. I’ve heard a lot about this company, a lot of good things, so I was really excited to try their products. LUSH has some amazing products, don’t get me wrong, but I feel like they are a little expensive.
So I’ve been looking for an alternative that is a reasonable price, as well as amazing quality, something similar to LUSH. If you’ve been following An Ocean Glimmer for a little while, you’ll know that I tried the Wilko own bath bombs, I spoke about them in my August Favourites. But they weren’t actually very exciting, they just turned the water a different colour.

Welcome back everyone! You might have noticed that things have been a little quiet here, as I’ve been on a mini blogger break, this has been a perfect opportunity to enjoy some time with the family. I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year. I don’t know about you, but I’ve definitely eaten a lot of food and been spoilt by my friends and family.
To start the New Year, I thought I would share with you my December Favourites.
Continue reading “December Favourites”
I do hope December is treating you well! It definitely is feeling a lot more festive and I can not wait to start celebrating Christmas probably. Now for Blogmas Day 4, I wanted to share with you my Christmas Wishlist. It has been hard thinking about items as my birthday was towards the end of last month, so I’ve had to have two lists within a month!
It wasn’t until after choosing these items that I realised how much it was related to! I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing but recently I’ve come across some great brands and I would love to get my hands on them. Also, I always seem to fall in love with things at the same time.
Now without further ado let’s begin my 2017 Christmas Wishlist!

I know what you’re all thinking, Christmas! But it’s only October, well I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s seen all the Christmas cards, chocolate, presents already in the shops! I think we’re all starting to celebrate Christmas a little earlier, instead of it being after Halloween, everything starts appearing in September. As you can already tell by the heading, I’m going to be showing you some of the products you can get your hands on from MAD Beauty this Christmas.
I received a very good selection of just some of the products you can put on your Christmas wishlist, from Bon Bon Bath Fizzers from their Modern Christmas collection to a Hand Care Set in the scent Cranberry, three cute little Lip Balms and latest Rose Bath Petals from their Disney Beauty & the Beast Collection. When I opened the parcel, it felt a lot like Christmas! The packaging all screams Christmas, it felt like a little early for this parcel though.
Ever since I can remember, I’ve always celebrated Christmas after my Birthday on 25 November. It just makes sense, to be honest. The Bath Petals were a little random to receive with the other products but at the same time, I was excited to have received them. Before I get into the Christmas Haul, I want to chat a little about MAD Beauty, they are the leader in design led cosmetics for both the gift and professional sectors. With them all working tirelessly to provide a wide range of novel, fun and interesting products.
