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 Me? Continue reading “An A-Z of An Ocean Glimmer!”
For Blogmas 2017, I did a first impression post for LUSH Cosmetics, now I know what you are thinking! Gemma, you have only just tried LUSH!? Well, before moving to Aylesbury, I had no bath only a shower, but now I am lucky enough to be able to have a bath every weekend. I won’t explain too much here as you can read all about why in my impression post. Myself and Yasmine have now become addicted to LUSH bath bombs!
As you know, I went down to Plymouth with Yasmine to see in the New Year with her family and our friends. Meaning we couldn’t come back to Aylesbury without some LUSH treats. I was able to take advantage of their January sale, where they had their Christmas products on 50% off! Great right! Everyone went a bit crazy for this sale, I don’t really blame them as you’re saving yourself a lot.
I know it’s a little late now for a LUSH Christmas Haul, but seeing as I didn’t actually buy them until AFTER Christmas, I’ve only just finished using them! Now, shall we get started with this small LUSH Haul?

I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe how quickly January has passed! It did have it’s moments where it was going a little slow, but then it seemed to pick up. I hope you have all had a good start to the New Year, it did take me a little while to get back into the swings of my normal routine but after a couple of days, I was fine. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one struggling with the early morning wake up calls.
Today, I am sharing with you my January Favourites! I will admit now that I haven’t actually done very much this month so this post may be a little shorter than normal. I am hopeful that things will pick up during February though, I already have quite a few things planned. With struggling with money during January and the weather, I haven’t ventured outside that much.
Shall we get started with my January Favourites?

It’s nearly the end of January, our first month of 2018 is nearly complete! It’s been a crazy month, as well as very busy, not only in my personal life but also at work, January is a horrible month having to pick up things after being off for Christmas. This is the first year I’ve experienced something like this as I’ve always worked in retail and a Christmas break doesn’t exist!
One thing I love doing at this time of year is plan out what I want to achieve, you could even call it complete. I know I do my Monthly Goals but those are more specific for each month, whereas these Goals I don’t actually know when I’ll complete them. I’ve never been one for setting New Year Resolutions, I feel Goals are much better, for me, they give more motivation to achieve them.
I hope you are all having a lovely start to 2018! Things definitely do feel a little different, I am trying my hardest to be motivated, after my mini-blogging break, it feels weird being back. Especially as I’ve started work as well, I now need to get my butt into gear. January is a good month for reflecting on not only the previous month but year, it’s nice to look at where you’ve gone right but also what you can change and improve.
For today’s post, I’m reflecting on my goals that I set for December, as well as creating some new ones for January.
Welcome back everyone! You might have noticed that things have been a little quiet here, as I’ve been on a mini blogger break, this has been a perfect opportunity to enjoy some time with the family. I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year. I don’t know about you, but I’ve definitely eaten a lot of food and been spoilt by my friends and family.
To start the New Year, I thought I would share with you my December Favourites.

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!
With the nights getting colder and darker, it feels nice to cosy up on the sofa and watch a movie. I am definitely a massive fan of these nights, it’s nice to wind down and just relax, there’s variety of different ways you can do this! I don’t know about you but Winter just screams nights in. You don’t want to go outside because it’s already pitch black and it’s freezing cold. It’s definitely a must during these colder nights.
I thought I would share with you how I typically spend my Winter night in, what screams comfort to me!
I am pretty much always on the search for new products, I’m not sure about you but isn’t it lovely trying a new product every so often. I especially like this if they’re on some kind of offer or even a gift from someone. Recently I was gifted Shower Foam Pink Melon from Bilou, a German beauty range created by Bibi. I’ve heard so many great things about this brand as well as their products, so I was very excited to try it!

Today officially marks the first day of Winter! Even though I always thought it was the beginning of November. Winter has always been my favourite season as it includes both my birthday and Christmas. There’s definitely more that I love about Winter than any other seasons, I’m not sure about you but it always feels super special and magically. To mark the first day of Winter, I thought it would be good to share with you 50 Things I Love About Winter.
