Goodbye June! Hello July!
I’ve disappeared for a little but I’m back! I’ve been a little preoccupied with personal things but thankfully we’re all good and I’ve got spare time to get back blogging. So that’s the reason why this Favourites post is a little late! Also where on earth is the year going? I cannot believe we’re half way through July already. Before we know it, 2020 will be over! And this horrible year can be forgotten.
Who knows what July will bring? It’s already been quite a good month! Nothing dramatic has happened which is nice after all the bad recently. Of course, my Favourites are a little different at the moment. This month’s Favourites includes just that, what I have loved throughout June. If you follow me on Instagram, you might just recognise some of my Favourites.

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.
Since being a blogger, I have discovered so many small businesses that beforehand I would have never found. Over time the internet has opened up some amazing business opportunities for a lot of people. Now having your own business is something anyone could do and not limited to people with degrees. I am a firm believer in supporting these businesses.
They’ve done something that I could only imagine doing and I love how strong they are. There are some great businesses out there but without people supporting them, they wouldn’t be able to continue. Being supportive is definitely a must with small businesses. Over the course of being a blogger, I have supported some great brands, including Dorkface, The Birdhouse Calligraphy and Juniper Daze Designs.

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.
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!
I’ve got a very special announcement to make…
I found out that the lovely Steph from Juniper Daze nominated me for the Liebster Award!
This is the second nomination I have received for An Ocean Glimmer, after Abi Moss nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award last month. It is always lovely to be nominated for something like this, as you know there are people out there that are reading and enjoying your blog.
