What I Received for Christmas 2019

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, I spent Christmas Eve with my Grandparents, Christmas Day with my parents and then Boxing Day with Yasmine and my Uncle.

I don’t want to go into too much detail here as I spoke about Christmas in my December Favourites. Check that post out here!

12 Days of Blogmas // Merry Christmas!

Can you believe what day it is today, that’s right, it’s Christmas Day! I hope you have all had a lovely day, opened all your presents and stuffed your face with amazing Christmas food. Don’t worry, I’m not writing this post on Christmas Day! It’s pre-written and scheduled because I need to spend the day with my family. I thought I would write this post as a reflection of December and 12 Days of Blogmas.

I would like to just say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported me by reading my blog throughout December. I hope to continue creating great content for you all! I am always so thankful to all of those who continually read An Ocean Glimmer as well as those who are new if that’s you, why hello there! Without you, I doubt I would have ever continued.

12 Days of Blogmas #6 // Christmas Spirit

I hope December is treating you well. For today’s post I wanted to talk about Christmas Spirit, those two words mean a lot to different people, I wanted to share what they mean to me. I don’t get into the spirit until 1st December, this might be shocking to a few. How can someone choose when to get into the spirit? I hear you ask. I have always had this rule, the decorations do not appear until on or after 1st December.

With a birthday at the end of November, I like to have a bit of breathing space after celebrating and enjoying to then get excited for Christmas. I know some people who start a week before December, shops are even selling cards and decorations as early as October! I much prefer to have 24 days of extreme Christmas spirit than have nearly a month and a half of watered down Christmas spirit.

Blogmas Christmas Day // Merry Christmas!

Can you believe what day it is today, that’s right, it’s Christmas Day! I hope you have all had a lovely day, opened all your presents and stuffed your face with amazing Christmas food. Don’t worry, I’m not writing this post on Christmas Day! It’s pre-written and scheduled because I need to spend the day with my family. I thought I would write this post as a reflection of December and Blogmas.

I’m actually really proud of myself for completing Blogmas! It wasn’t easy, having a full-time job and trying to have fun and relaxed weekends did make it hard. I have put in a lot of work and I am really proud of what I’ve achieved. I would like to just say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported me by reading my blog throughout December. I hope to continue creating great content for you all!

Blogmas Day 20 // The Christmas “Would You Rather?” Tag

If you haven’t already noticed, I love tags, especially those that I’ve been tagged in by another blogger.
