As the day, month and year go by, we are creating memories and moments, I’m such a big advocate of creating moments to remember. It has become easier to create memories thanks to the digital change, I remember growing up and having to wait weeks until you could view the images you snapped. Now all smartphones are cable of showing the image instantly.
Today, I thought I would do a special post, I have been blogging since October 2013, meaning this year I will be celebrating six years of An Ocean Glimmer. I thought I would go back through the archive of An Ocean Glimmer and share with you a couple of my favourite moments since becoming a blogger. Now grab yourself a cuppa and a couple of snacks, this is going to be a long one!
Goodbye May, Hello June!
I hope you’ve had a lovely start to June. As it’s the beginning of a new month, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of May. Then create new Goals for June, I’m really excited about the upcoming month. I already have loads planned! I don’t think I’m home for one single weekend, it’s going to be a long but fun month.
As I explained recently in my 2019 Personal Goals Update, creating new Goals each month helps you to stay on top of what you want to achieve for the year. If you want to see what I got up to in May, I have shared my adventures in my Monthly Favourites // May 2019 here. It’s great to review and reflect each month, sometimes you even forget what you’ve done.
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 was recently contacted by Patrick Canning, to read and review one of his books, The Colonel and the Bee. After reading the blurb, I was very intrigued! It sounded like my type of book and genre to read. I am always on the search for new books to read and I’m always willing to try new books. My book reviews have decreased a little over the last couple of months. Unfortunately, I haven’t participated in many Book Blog Tours.
Not only did the blurb sell The Colonel and the Bee to me but these two snappy reviews:
Around the World in Eighty Days meets Wizard of Oz. Lara Croft, steampunk style.
I am really happy to share with you The Colonel and the Bee and my review, of course, like my normal reviews I will be sharing the full blurb and bio for the author. At the moment this is the only book review I have lined up for the next month. It seems like Book Blog Tours have gone silent on the books I am interested in. I might just have to read and review the books I’ve had on my Goodreads to-read shelf for a little while.
I hope you enjoy this review, shall we begin?
