‘Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful’
Hello, world! I know, I’ve gone awol, again…
But I’m back and hoping to get back into the swing of things. I have missed blogging but as I’ve been super busy with work and getting ready for Christmas, things have dropped off a cliff. Good news though, I have plenty of new content to share with you. And with two whole weeks off work, with not a lot planned, I’m going to be on a writing spree. The first post to share with you is one of my favourites.
Since coming across LUSH, I have fallen in love with their products but with quite an expensive price tag, I can’t purchase everything. I like to treat myself once in a while and what’s better than with a bright and colourful bath bomb to transform you into a different world. I normally purchase their seasonal items, whether that’s Halloween or Christmas, and their beautiful gift sets.
Hello, hello! I know, you’ve probably been thinking, where on earth has she been?
Well, I’m back, I know it’s been a while, things have been pretty busy! But as Winter is fast approaching, I’m less busy and can put the time back into An Ocean Glimmer. Of course, this leads to a perfect timing with my Monthly Favourites for October. It was a great month and to be honest, I don’t know where it went!
It was another month of packed weekends going out on adventures. I know I haven’t shared these adventures on Instagram like I would normally, to be honest, the month has just gone past in a blur. I have my fingers crossed that I can change this for November and I’ll be back in the Instagram and blogging game once again.
Just because I’m a little excited, hello November!

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.
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.
This Christmas, why not visit a small business to purchase your gifts from, over the past couple of months I’ve brought from a couple of small businesses. There are so many good businesses out there that hopefully will allow you to shop for almost anyone. Also, I don’t know about you but I swear it leaves such a good feeling in yourself.
I always try to explore places such as Etsy to come across gifts, with a simple search you can uncover a variety of gifts. Just be careful you don’t spend the whole day searching, once you start, it’s very hard to stop. I have got lost in Etsy a couple of times, thankfully I do purchase a couple of things, maybe more than I should have.
Today, I wanted to share with you a couple of small businesses in this handy Small Business Gift Guide.

What makes a night in perfect, a film of course! I adore nothing better than snuggling under a blanket with the perfect film on. My choice normally relates to the time of year, it’s December, you’ve guessed it a festive favourite! There’s nothing better than putting on my favourite film, I have a couple of good movies that I have to watch every Christmas.
Today I’m sharing my top six movies I always have to watch when December comes around! It’s only 9th December and I’ve already watched two from my below list. I adore watching festive films, I can never get bored of them. I always love when new Christmas movies come out, the below are some of my favourite classic movies.
I adore Autumn! It’s definitely my favourite season, there are a couple of special moments to celebrate in this season, including the big one my birthday. I have seen a couple of Autumn Tag in the blogosphere and had to complete one myself! I love these as they’re a great way to learn a bit more about someone and they definitely get your brain working.
Normally I am tagged to complete one myself but for this particular one, I came across it on another blog. I fell in love with the questions and just had to participate myself. Autumn is definitely a season that makes me all warm and fuzzy inside, there are so many reasons to love Autumn including autumnal fashion, cooler weather and chill nights in.
Hello November! Goodbye October!
The past month has been kind to me, I’ve still been very busy and enjoying a lot of different things. At moments October has felt a long month but now looking back, it’s gone really quickly! October has always been a good month, for me, Autumn kicks off and I can start enjoying the holidays.
Before we go full steam ahead for November, let’s first review October as I said above, there’s quite a lot to share with you! One thing first, I hope you all enjoyed Halloween and hopefully had a load of goodies. I’m really excited for November as it’s my birthday month! Even though it’s getting colder, I’ve still got exciting outdoor plans.
Happy Halloween! 🎃
I hope you’re all having a great day, eating a lot of sweets and getting ready for the trick or treaters. There’s nothing better than getting into the festive spirit than purchasing Autumnal scents. I have my Bath Bombs from Bomb Cosmetics, now the return of the Vanilla Pumpkin range from The Body Shop. I fell in love with this range last year and I’m so glad they’ve brought it back!
I am a massive fan of themed ranges from The Body Shop, this scent is great and they’re also killing it with their Christmas ranges. Definitely going to get my hands on one of those, unlike last year I knew I wanted to grab this range, there wasn’t nothing stopping me. Yasmine actually kindly brought me both the Shower Gel and Hand Cream when she visited Exeter, she knows me so well!
This time next week, you’ll have the carved pumpkins outside, a bowl full of sweets and trick or treaters knocking on the door, that’s right I’m talking about Halloween! This is one of my favourite holidays of the year and it just screams Autumn. I’m always intrigued by what brands bring out this time of year, there’s nothing better than getting into the spirit a little early.
Today I am sharing with you the Halloween range from Bomb Cosmetics, as you know I am a massive fan of Bath Bombs. I love how Bomb Cosmetics have brought out a selection of Halloween products, they’re really creative and valve for money, the perfect way to get you in the Halloween spirit. If you love Bath Bombs then this is definitely the post for you!
