An A-Z of An Ocean Glimmer!

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 MeContinue reading “An A-Z of An Ocean Glimmer!”

Book Review // The Curse of Time

It’s that time of the month again, I’m excited to be sharing with you today my thoughts on The Curse of Time by Marjorie Mallon! Unfortunately, there was no suitable book tour during March, so I had to skip that month, but I did share my thoughts on Suicide Squad thanks to March’s Reading Challenge from Blogger Book Nook. I’m trying my hardest to read at least one book each month, to reach my Goodreads Reading Challenge.

This blog book tour is hosted by Jenny Marston, over at Neverland Blog Tours, I have found some new loves since participating in book tours. I don’t think this is going to end with myself really enjoying this month’s book. I am the fifth stop on The Curse of Time Blog Tour hosted by Jenny, I am also sharing today with Whispering Stories so please check out her blog to read what she thought.

9 Things That Make Me Happy

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!

Blogger Book Nook #8 // Murder in the Library

It’s that time of the month again, it’s time to indulge in a book that relates to the Monthly Reading Challenge created by the Blogger Book Nook. This month’s Reading Challenge is a little different and took a while to find a book that could relate to Murder in the Library. Meaning April is all about entering the twisting, turning tunnels of Crime and Thriller Fiction, asking the question WHO DUNNIT?!

I’m excited to indulge in a book of this genre, as it’s definitely an interesting genre. We receive our monthly Reading Challenge from either Abbey or Tabitha, two of the kindest girls, on the Facebook page. Here we have some great conversations and are able to talk books! This is also the perfect opportunity to get to know new bloggers, ones that have a similar interest, books and reading.

6 Things I Love About Motorsports

I’m sure it’s no surprise that I’m a massive motorsports fan! I’m always talking about it here as well as on Twitter, motorsports has always been a part of my life. From a very young age, my Dad introduced me to Formula 1. He would watch it each weekend and I would sit there with him, I didn’t have a clue of who was who or what was going on.

I continued to watch F1 growing up and before I realise, I knew about everything that was going on. I started to enjoy it more as well as finding the team and driver to support each race, then I started to enjoy other series and formulas, like DTM, Formula E and World Endurance Championship.

Goodbye Chapped Lips with Dr.PAWPAW

During the Winter months, I find my lips are horrible, they become chapped and sore, it’s hard finding something that keeps this at bay. Especially with the change of weather recently, my lips have been chapped and I’ve needed something to fix them. I do find that the change between one season to another can cause problems with your health and appearance.

Of course, there are a lot of different products on the market that say they can save your chapped lips, but do these actually work! I’ve been eyeing up recently products from Dr.PAWPAW including their Original Balm. I was actually recently gifted their balm to combat my chapped lips. I’m sure if you read my March Favourites, you’ll know I’ve been raving about this product!

As well as speaking about it on my social media channels, of course, I wanted to speak about the Original Balm in a little bit of depth here today.

You can check out what I’ve been up to with my March Favourites, where I show you what I’ve been doing, as well as products I’ve been loving.

This year seems to be going fast at the moment, can you really believe that it’s April, I don’t know where the time is going! Something that also proves that time is going quick, is that next week marks six months since I started with 4CM, which is something I can not believe! I love setting Goals each month as it keeps me motivated to achieve my year Goals. It keeps you going and you’ll know if you’re on target.
