Now that Christmas is around the corner, I’m sure you’re all getting ready. One thing you might just need to add to your shopping list is Christmas cards, but I might have found a solution to the old fashion Christmas card. I’m talking about cards that you send via email instead of the postbox. Today I’ll be introducing you to Paperless Post, to think again about how you send cards.
Paperless Post is the premier destination for online invitations that get people excited to get together. There is a wide range to choose from, including classic stationery designs, or customise a flyer with GIFs and stickers. They’re available to celebrate the most important life occasions from birthday and Christmas to a Wedding and parties. Not only can you share via email but also text, or social media.

Here we are, the second geeky goodness post in last than a week! Today I am sharing with you MyGeekBox, a monthly themed box full of geeky goodness, of course, as the name suggests. This was the second box I picked up at MCM Comic Con back in March when I visited Birmingham NEC. I’m not going to go into too much detail here, but if you are interested, then head over here for more.
The first box I unboxed was from ZBOX if you’re interested to see what I received, then head over here for the full unboxing.
Here is what I received in the MyGeekBox MCM Comic Con Exclusive.
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.

Here we are, another post sharing my love for bath bombs, who could say no!? I take any opportunity to purchase bath bombs, at the moment, our collection is very full. You might just remember that I recently shared my thoughts on the 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar from Bomb Cosmetics, leading to us having a grand total of 24 bath bombs. We’re not even halfway through all of these!
When I purchased the Advent Calendar, I actually received a free gift, the Hawaiian Flower Gift Pack. I was amazed to see it added to my basket, who doesn’t love a good freebie? This also meant I was getting more for my money than the 12 bath bombs in the Advent Calendar. This is one of the reasons I adore Bomb Cosmetics, their collections are impressive and you receive free goodies.
It’s February, can you believe how quick the year is going? I have had a lovely January, I hope the past month has treated you well. Today I am going to be reflecting on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of January. I love reflecting and creating new Goals each month, there’s something about it that makes me more determined to achieve them.
There are no resolutions for me, it’s all about setting Goals to succeed throughout the year. My Monthly Goals always relate to the bigger picture of my Personal Goals and Blogging Goals for the year. I love creating new Goals, it’s just something about them, it also makes sure you’re on target and also it’s helpful to keep remembering the bigger picture and those Goals.
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.
On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me,
a bath bomb which filled me with glee!
I know Christmas was over a month now but I couldn’t exactly speak about this beforehand. I adore a good bath bomb, who doesn’t!? They turn a normal bath into a bubble, relaxing hour. I have shared just a couple of bath bombs here on An Ocean Glimmer, showcasing my love for them! They are pretty addicting.
Today, I have got just a small haul of bath bombs and that’s because I received the 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar from Bomb Cosmetics. As the name suggests, there are 12 different bath bombs inside the advent calendar. I was soo excited when I got my hands on this! I even returned the favour and brought Yasmine one.
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:

Happy, Happy New Year. I hope January is treating you well, here we are a new month and of course a New Year. Things are going to continue being the same here on An Ocean Glimmer, I enjoy writing the content and I hope you enjoy reading. I’m really hopeful for 2019, there are a lot of good things to come. Today I am going to be reflecting on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of December.
I love reflecting and creating new Goals each month, there’s something about it that makes me more determined to achieve them. Of course, with a New Year comes resolutions, but that’s not me so I’ll be setting soon some Goals I would love to achieve over the course of 2019. My Monthly Goals will be in line with these Goals, to make them seem that little bit easier to achieve.
I have shared my adventures in my Monthly Favourites // December 2018 here. Before I set myself some new Goals for January, let’s reflect on my December Goals!
