One side of me that I don’t write too much about on An Ocean Glimmer, is my Geeky/Nerd side. I am a massive lover of all things Marvel and DC Comics, as well as playing video games! This is where today comes in, I thought it was very fitting to celebrate Video Games Day, who even knew this was a thing. I definitely did not until I came across it.
For long as I can remember, I’ve had some form of gaming controller in my hand, be it a PlayStation or even Xbox. Who remembers the Dreamcast? My all-time favourite console that I feel was definitely before its time! I’ve been very fortunate to grow up with a console, with my uncle a gamer as well, I’ve picked up a lot from him. I always used to play Halo and Dead or Alive with him!
There is that one thing that we all need that makes us less miserable! That would be sleep, I know if I don’t have a good nights sleep, you don’t want to mess with me in the morning. For me, I do find it hard to get to sleep, so there are a couple of things I do to help me wind down and relax for the evening.
At the moment I am pretty stressed with the move, so I thought now would be a great opportunity to share with you my Bedtime Beauty Routine! The easiest way I felt to share with you my routine, would be to go through step by step my evening. Let’s begin with;
Subscription Boxes are becoming more popular amongst everyone, as no matter what your interests are, I guarantee there will be a box out there for you. As you know, I am subscribed to Infinity Crates, a crate filled with entertainment goodness. I love receiving this every month, as I never know what I’m going to receive until I open it up.
I came across a new Subscription Box, Artemis & Xena, I immediately fell in love as I love the concept of the box. Ani founded Artemis & Xena after struggling with her mental well-being as a teenager and during the first year of University. A change of thinking and lifestyle helped her to get through her difficulties, therefore she wants to help other women who may be facing difficulties too using what helped her.
February’s Infinity Crates has been shipped and it’s finally here! This month’s was a surprise, after I didn’t receive any emails to say when I might receive it.

There are four different crates on offer, Classic Crate for £16.99 plus p&p, Premium Crate for £23.99 plus p&p, Kids Crate for £16.99 plus p&p and T-Shirt Only Crate for £7.99 plus p&p.

The exclusive theme for this month’s crate is Power.
Where on earth did February go! Felt like yesterday that it was the end of January, now it’s the end of another month and on to another Favourites. It was quite tricky for this month, as there was nothing that stood out to me like last month. I have managed it though and here is a summary of those things I’ve enjoyed this month!
I love looking at different National Days as it’s amazing how every day of the year is some kind of celebration for something. Sunday 26 February 2017 celebrates the art of story telling, better known as Tell a Fairy Tale Day. I grew up constantly reading Fairy Tales, along with watching them.
To celebrate Tell a Fairy Tale Day, I thought I would do a little quiz, I’ve got some clues that describe six different Fairy Tales that I’m sure you’ll all know!
Can you believe it! January has been and gone, it’s now February! For the New Year, I thought I would introduce a new series, at the end of each month I am going to sum up what I’ve been loving. This may include some beauty items along with places and things I’ve been enjoying over the month.
