Fitness Goals for 2019

If you’ve been following An Ocean Glimmer for a little while, you’ll notice I’ve been including a couple of Fitness Goals in my Monthly Goals. This might sound sad of me but these Goals have really pushed me and now I’m feeling really good about myself. I have now been visiting the Gym constantly for the past month. I would love to continue this as I think it’s improving my mental health.

I know we’re now halfway through the year but surely it’s never a bad time to start something new! Especially if it’s going to help with your overall health, I’m not one of those to wait until the New Year to change something about my life, there is no better time than the present to begin. I did though, wait until the beginning of June to begin my Gym membership, just something about it being a new month, new Goal.

This Time Next Year Tag 2019

I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I posted the This Time Next Year Tag 2018 on An Ocean Glimmer. What is the This Time Next Year Tag I hear you say? Well, it’s a tag created by Sarah Lemmon, aka Little Reader, it’s basically inspired by a British TV Show where you see people present their goals for next year. Then it flashes forward 365 days later to see if they have achieved them.

This is how the tag will work:

  • Thank the person who tagged you
  • Write your goals for next year
  • Write how you’re going to achieve your goals
  • Tag at least 5 of your blogger friends to share their goals
  • Then if you wish in 365 days write a post for everyone to see if you have been successful or not!

#howmuchisenough // Skin Cancer Awareness Campaign

If you live in the UK, you’ll know how hot it has been recently, with temperatures hitting higher than 30°C as a sizzling heatwave grips the country. We all love soaking up the sun, whether that’s in the UK or abroad but unfortunately, it doesn’t come without its consequences. Skin Cancer, caused by exposure to the sun, this may be long-term exposure or short periods of intense sun exposure and burning.

With the heatwave showing no sign of easing up, Skin Cancer charities are deeply concerned about the lasting impact that overdoing it in the sun will have on our health. Altruist Dermatologist Sunscreen and Melanoma Focus, are hitting back with a new series of ‘scars and all’ content shorts to tell the human stories behind three common skin cancer cases.

Brighter Skin in 4 Weeks With Fade Out

There are so many products on the market to include in your morning / evening routine, that it’s hard to understand which product to use. With so many different companies all telling you that their product will reduce problems we women love to hate. For as long as I can remember, I have always had problems with my skin, leading to me going on the search for the best skincare products.

In mid-June, I signed up for the 4 Week Challenge with Fade Out, the journey towards skin confidence. I was a little unsure at first about the Challenge as with sensitive skin, I have to be very careful about the type of products I use. I’m glad I was able to choose the correct products for my skin type and no sooner than signing up, I had received my products.

Now here I am one month later and the 4 Week Challenge is complete! I thought I would share my thoughts and feelings with you about these products. Has my skin become brighter? Do I agree with what they’re promising? Please keep reading!

Reduce Bingo Wings with skin689®

I’m always learning something new about my body and the types of products to use, I was recently contacted by Word of Mouth Communication to try one of their client’s new products. It’s a product that I have never thought to try until now after researching the brand and product.

The product I’m speaking about is Firm Skin Upper Arms from skin689®, an emulsion especially designed for the skin of the upper arms that catalyzes energy metabolism and breakdown of fatty acids.

I’ve been trying it for a couple of weeks now and thought it would be the perfect time to introduce you to skin689® and their products. Before getting to my review of their Firm Skin Upper Arms, I thought I would speak about skin689®, a brand from Switzerland.
