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.

It’s always amazing when you’re tagged in an award, earlier this year you might remember that I was nominated for The Liebster Award by the lovely Steph from Juniper Daze as well as Zara from Its All Zara. Well, at the end of June I found out that Charlotte from DBBloggerxoxo nominated me for The Liebster Award… I know, again!! I am massively thankful to Charlotte for nominating me, it means the world to me, especially as recently I’ve started to fall in love with her writing and blog! I really do aspire to her blog, as it’s gorgeous, especially her photographs, they are perfect and you should be very proud Charlotte!

There are so many different Etsy shops that you can browse for pretty much anything, notebooks, stickers, planner essentials, what ever you can think of, there maybe someone who creates it. Recently I came across Juniper Daze Designs, an Etsy shop created by Steph Whyte from Juniper Daze. I follow Steph on Twitter and I absolutely LOVE her blog, so I jumped at the chance to have a look at her shop.
Her shop isn’t even a month old yet, so it’s still pretty fresh! I know of a few bloggers who own a Etsy shop, which is pretty cool as I don’t think I could run a blog, shop and work part-time! Steph is quite a crafty person, so the idea to open a shop was quite easy, as she wanted to share this with the rest of the world. As well as creating a lot of DIY crafty pieces for her own wedding.
If you’ve been following me for a little while, you’ll remember that mid-January I was nominated for The Liebster Award by the lovely Steph from Juniper Daze. Well, I’ve got some more exciting news, I found out that the lovely Zara from Its All Zara nominated me again for The Liebster Award.
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.
