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?
If you’ve been following An Ocean Glimmer since a year ago, you’ll hopefully remember that I did a blog post for Friction Free Shaving, a razor delivery service designed exclusively for women that arrives on your doorstep every month. I fell in love with my Shaviour, I thought now would be the perfect time to give you an update, also a little background on Friction Free Shaving.
Am I still using my Shaviour, Rose? What are my thoughts?

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! If you struggle to sleep, I would definitely recommend picking either of these up.
They are custom fitted Sleep Mask which has a place formed for the nose, you can even open your eyes while wearing the mask. There are so many features to this Sleep Mask to make it a must buy, with a velcro strap on the back, making it easy to customise to your head. You don’t have to worry about the Sleep Mask not fitting your head or being too big.
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.
I can’t believe it’s February! Where on earth did January go? Before we move forward to February though, I need to reflect on January. There is no better way of doing that than my Monthly Favourites. It’s incredible what you get up to in a month as well as the new products you are exposed to. January has been an incredible month, there was one moment that made January extra special.
Missed my December Favourites? Head over here to see what I was loving
during the month.
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.
On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me,
a bath bomb which filled me with glee!
I know Christmas was over a month now but I couldn’t exactly speak about this beforehand. I adore a good bath bomb, who doesn’t!? They turn a normal bath into a bubble, relaxing hour. I have shared just a couple of bath bombs here on An Ocean Glimmer, showcasing my love for them! They are pretty addicting.
Today, I have got just a small haul of bath bombs and that’s because I received the 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar from Bomb Cosmetics. As the name suggests, there are 12 different bath bombs inside the advent calendar. I was soo excited when I got my hands on this! I even returned the favour and brought Yasmine one.
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.
January marks Get Organised Month, a month to reflect if you’re organised and if not, how to make yourself more organised. There are many ways of being organised, but some of us certainly have better organisational skills than others. A bit of organisation can make even the most chaotic of spaces relatively manageable.
Back in 2005, the Association of Professional Coordinators decided that they wanted to increase awareness of the significance of organisation. Studies show that individuals waste up to an hour every day on average, searching for things that they’ve misplaced. January is the ideal time for Get Organised Month since “change” is a popular New Year’s resolution.
As well as January just being a perfect month and to start the New Year off correctly. I have always been told I am a very organised person, for as long as I can remember I’ve been able to organise very well. It’s always a running joke at work! I always remember things that everyone else just forgets, I’ve even been called a uber-organisational superhero.
