Something that is good to do once in a while is think about the things that make you happy, it’s good to appreciate the things and people that are around you. I swear there isn’t enough self-love and thinking about the things around you, sometimes you don’t realise how much you love something until it’s gone.
Today I thought it would be nice to share what makes me happy, there’s a variety of things that if I didn’t have or were gone from my life, I would definitely miss!

I thought I would do quite a fun post today and let you know some of my favourite bloggers! Since becoming a blogger myself, I have come across a lot of bloggers, Twitter is a massive help for this, I’m always finding a new blog. With so many blogs out there, you’ll be able to find something you’ll adore, we’ve all got different interests! Of course, there are a few reasons behind my love for these blogs.
Let’s get started, I’m going to share my five favourite blogs;

It’s one of those stereotypical things, you become a blogger, you receive products from brands in return for an honest review on your blog, but in reality, it’s not that easy. You can either approach brands yourself, find opportunities on Twitter or join programs like Inzpire.me. I recently signed up to Inzpire.me after coming across the program on Twitter as I’ve reached a point with my blog where I feel like I can sell myself to brands and be successful.
Today I wanted to introduce you to Inzpire.me and how it can help you, as an influencer, collaborate with brands.
With the two-year anniversary of An Ocean Glimmer fast approaching, I thought I would explain Why I Started Blogging, now I know all bloggers write about this, but for me, I love this as you know a blogger on more of a personal level. Of course, everyone has different reasons for starting their blog. I feel blogging is kind of losing its value, becoming more about the money and products, rather than the love and passion.
Officially I started blogging five years ago when I was in my first year of College studying Media, we were told it was a good platform to impress future employers. We could either chose Blogspot or WordPress, I couldn’t get along with either so I went for Tumblr. Now it was nothing special over there, it was just small reviews here and there about movies and games.
I am no means a girly girl, I am not one to be wearing makeup and I do not have a fashion sense! But when it comes to my nails, I absolutely adore them! For the past couple of months, I’ve been getting my nails professionally done because why not, my nails are my life and when I break one, well a little part of me breaks along with it.
Through my love of my nails, comes my Nail Polish Collection, it is no means done yet either! I thought I would show you the variety of polishes I have and you may just seem a theme running throughout, let me know in the comments if you do. I am still on the look out for polishes and if I do see pretty colours, I will pick them up! Especially if they are on offer in Superdrug.
Inspired by the Japanese assault course game show, Ninja Warrior, Adrenalin Urban Activity Centre opened its doors in Plymouth three months ago. Adrenalin is not just about conquering the fearsome but fun assault course, you are able to bounce as much as you like on the trampolines, test your climbing skills and try your hand at free running.
Corinne from Organic By Nerve and I popped along to check it out for ourselves and to see how much fun we could have in the space of an hour. We were both a little nervous at first, as we had never been before and didn’t know what to expect. The staff were friendly and helpful, with them easing you into the experience, especially if you’ve never been before.
The Body Shop is quickly becoming my favourite shop and not just because of their work against animal testing. Their products are very much value for money, along with purchasing my skin care range from them, I also buy my lotions. There are just so many flavours to choose from, with my current favourite flavour of Body Butter being Mango.
I love it when you’ve ordered something online and then a couple of days later it’s sat on your mat just waiting for you to open it. Recently I did a small order from Dorkface’s Etsy store. For those of you who don’t know who Dorkface is, real name Jemma Humphreys, she is a blogger and founder of the Girl Gang.
A couple of weeks back, I received some good news, I was accepted for work experience that I applied for with the PR agency, Teneo Blue Rubicon. Now this was really good news for me as the company are based in London. So it’s a really good experience and something good to put on my CV.
