One of my main loves of being a blogger is being able to speak about anything and everything in one place. An Ocean Glimmer is a place for me to share my thoughts and favourites, to be honest, to share pretty much anything. Today’s post is no different, I try and bring a variety, whether that’s beauty, motorsports and entertainment. You might not know this but I adore comic books!
I have loved reading comic books for long as I remember, over the years, I have taken a really liken to them. Who doesn’t love a comic book!? I would definitely call myself a comic book geek, to be honest, a geek in general. Some people like sports and others like music, for me anything geeky is a must. There are so many reasons to love comic books, from the creativity and characters to how unique the storylines are.
Can you believe it’s October? Seriously where on earth is 2018 going, it’s officially Autumn, Halloween is just around the corner, it’s nearly my birthday and before you know it, Christmas is here. I hope you’re all having a great start to the month, October is one of my favourite months and I’m super excited for the upcoming month.
Before we go full steam ahead for October, let’s first review September. September was a great month, it’s definitely starting to slow down in the activities I am doing, it was quite hard to come up with a lengthy Favourites post like recent posts. I am really enjoying sharing my Favourites with you.
We’re nearly halfway through March, I hope you are all having a great month! Of course, with a new month comes a new Reading Challenge for the Blogger Book Nook. This month is definitely a good one and I’m really excited to get stuck in, this month’s Reading Challenge is Books to Screen. This month is all about reading books that have been made into TV Series/Movie adaptions.
It does feel that every movie is based on something, I think most of the books on my bookcase are also in my film collection. 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.
Right, let’s get on with March’s Reading Challenge.
Welcome to Blogmas Day 5, I hope you are all enjoying Blogmas on An Ocean Glimmer so far, can you believe it is only 20 days until Christmas! Where on earth is the time going!? For today’s Blogmas post, I am answering questions from the lovely BloggersTribe as they have created a Christmas tag. I love answering questions from tags, they always get me thinking, so a Christmas tag is just perfect!
I would like to thank Katie from BloggersTribe for letting me know about this tag after struggling to find a new Christmas related tag for Blogmas 2017, as I didn’t want to use the same one as last year. She reached out to me, after asking my followers on Twitter as a Google search came up with nothing. Also another shout out to Bexa from Hello Bexa who created the feature image above! How beautiful is it!?
Enough chit-chat, let’s get started with the Christmas tag created by BloggersTribe!
Since finishing university, I’ve had a lot more time on my hands, for this I’ve managed to read a lot more, one of my favourite hobbies! During my semesters, I would read books after books, but these would be boring books for my assignments. I lost interest in reading for fun as well as just not having enough time. If you’ve been following An Ocean Glimmer for a while, you’ll know that I’ve been taking part in some book blog tours.
These have fueled my reading needs and has shown me just how much I’ve missed reading for pleasure. Which is why I’m currently loving today, because it is Book Lovers Day! There are many different ways you can celebrate Book Lovers Day because we are all different, we need some that will fuel all our needs. You can read some of your favourite books, maybe something from your childhood that you loved or what about a trip to your local library and just sit there for hours and read all kinds of books.
It’s that time of month again! Infinity Crates has been delivered and I can not wait to show you what I received.

As you’ll know, along with being a Beauty and Lifestyle Blogger, there is another side to me, I am a massive Geek at heart! I love everything from Vampire Diaries to Harry Potter and many great games. Recently I came across a tag on ZombieGoddess Beauty called The Geeky Girl Tag, I was in love with it and knew I needed to do it for myself, especially as I don’t normally speak about my geek side.
As some of you might know, I am addicted to stationery. I absolutely love picking up new items, especially adorable ones from Paperchase. Today, I thought I would share with you my Notebook collection, because let me tell you, there is just a few!

Before we head towards the New Year, I wanted to do a Christmas Presents Haul, now I will admit that this isn’t everything! Because I haven’t managed to see everyone yet to receive their presents. Along with receiving a lot of money that has gone towards my holiday next year.
