Oh, what a beautiful morning!
We’ve been really lucky with the weather recently, it does change its mind every day but still, it’s treating us well. I hope you’re having a beautiful May. Now that the weather is starting to improve, I don’t know about you, but I’m finding it harder to be motivated and inspired! I thought today I would share a couple of my tips to staying motivated and inspired if you have any tips yourself, please comment these below.
It’s no surprise I am a massive geek! I definitely need to add more of this content to An Ocean Glimmer. Back in March, I visited Birmingham NEC for the second time in six months to attend MCM Comic Con Birmingham 2019. I fell in love with it so much in November, I just had to go again! I spoke about this in my Monthly Favourites for March 2019, head over here for more.
Of course, I couldn’t go to Comic Con without picking up a couple of items! Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be sharing a couple of posts. If you love geeky goodness, then stay tuned. Today, I’ll be introducing you to ZBOX, a monthly themed box, filled to the brim with memorabilia. I couldn’t resist picking up this box! I’ve heard such good things about them, it also always feels like Christmas when you open one.
Here is what I received in the ZBOX MCM Comic Con Exclusive.

This year, I turn twenty-four, it only feels like yesterday that I turned twenty-one. Where on earth does the time go? Before I know it, I will be turning thirty… There are certain things we all want to do or even achieve in our lifetime. I’ve seen quite a lot of the things before I’m thirty posts being shared, I loved reading these as it sets down on paper what we want to achieve.
Today, I thought I would do one of these myself, what are the things I want to achieve? If we write it down, then at least we have something to put our mind to. This is exactly the same with my Monthly Goals and achieving my Goals. If you’ve shared or things about doing a similar post, please share with me down in the comments below! I will love to read your list.
Here are thirty things I want to do before I turn thirty.
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 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.
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 adore supporting small businesses, throughout 2018 I supported just a couple, Fizzy Smelts, Geeky Melts and EllesDoodleBox to name a few. 2019 is going to be no different, I’m starting the year off right by supporting Leviko Designs, an independent store located in Edinburgh. Louise, the owner and designer of the jewellery, produces handmade bespoke quality pieces.
They can be tailor-made to your set specifications and are all presented in a beautiful gift box. Louise established Leviko Designs in 2016 following the birth of her first child. Looking for a creative outlet she was introduced to the Japanese Art of Kumihimo and quickly fell in love with the variety, versatility and relaxation which comes from it.
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 love a good Secret Santa, it’s a good way of spreading Christmas cheer at the same time as having fun with the people around you. Last year, I noticed a couple of Bloggers Secret Santa, unfortunately, I was too late to participate. I’ve heard some great things about it and it’s great to spread Christmas cheer within the blogging community.
We’re all one big family so it’s great to gift to one another as well as sending Christmas cards. This year, luck was on my side and I joined the Bloggers Secret Santa hosted by Casey over at casestreetx. I was very excited to join and couldn’t wait to start chatting with the other bloggers as a group message was set up on Twitter.
