Here we are, the second geeky goodness post in last than a week! Today I am sharing with you MyGeekBox, a monthly themed box full of geeky goodness, of course, as the name suggests. This was the second box I picked up at MCM Comic Con back in March when I visited Birmingham NEC. I’m not going to go into too much detail here, but if you are interested, then head over here for more.
The first box I unboxed was from ZBOX if you’re interested to see what I received, then head over here for the full unboxing.
Here is what I received in the MyGeekBox MCM Comic Con Exclusive.
It’s no surprise I am a massive geek! I definitely need to add more of this content to An Ocean Glimmer. Back in March, I visited Birmingham NEC for the second time in six months to attend MCM Comic Con Birmingham 2019. I fell in love with it so much in November, I just had to go again! I spoke about this in my Monthly Favourites for March 2019, head over here for more.
Of course, I couldn’t go to Comic Con without picking up a couple of items! Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be sharing a couple of posts. If you love geeky goodness, then stay tuned. Today, I’ll be introducing you to ZBOX, a monthly themed box, filled to the brim with memorabilia. I couldn’t resist picking up this box! I’ve heard such good things about them, it also always feels like Christmas when you open one.

Hello, there May!
I can not believe May is here, I am so excited for the upcoming month, especially with going home soon. Now is the perfect time to reflect on the previous month., I love doing this by sharing my Monthly Favourites with you! It’s time to reflect on what happened in April. It was actually quite a quiet month, even though it went past in a blur, but I’ve still got some good favourites to share with you today.

during the month.
It’s great to have a Goal in mind, not just a daily or weekly one but yearly as well. I love creating Goals, I feel so inspired and it’s a great way to continue achieving. Back in January, I shared with you my 2019 Personal Goals, here I outlined exactly what I wanted to achieve over the course of the year. Now we’re nearly in May, it’s the perfect time to reflect on my Personal Goals and provide an update on progress.
I know I share my Monthly Goals but this doesn’t show the overall year story. When I’m setting my Monthly Goals, I try and keep my 2019 Goals in mind. It can be hard achieving your Goals, especially if it’s one you want to achieve in one year. Your Goals can be a lot easier to achieve if you think about them monthly. If you don’t create Monthly Goals, I would recommend starting now.

Hello there April!
I am so excited for the upcoming month. I have some great things planned, but before we can move forward to the new month, now is a great time to reflect on the previous month. I love doing this by sharing my Monthly Favourites with you! It’s time to reflect on what happened in March. It’s not until the end of the month that I realised exactly what I’ve been up to and the products I’ve been loving.

Now I know to most people believe we’ve had Spring for a couple of weeks. For me, I believe 20 March 2019 is the first day Spring. We’ve had an interesting start to March, with Storm Freya gracing us with her presence. We’re on Day 6 of the Astronomical Spring, I thought I would continue the theme of Self-Care and looking after yourself this Spring, by sharing a couple of Self-Care ideas.
Last week, I shared with you my face mask collection, a perfect addition to any pamper evening. Spring is the perfect time to reevaluate your routine and add in new products, also there’s something about Spring and the freshness of everything. Animals are being born, flowers are blooming and it’s the perfect time to think about yourself. Spring is a magical time of the year.

Goodbye February, Hello March!
I hope February treated you well and that you had a lovely month. Today I am going to be reflecting on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of February. Then creating new Goals for the upcoming month, I love reflecting and creating new Goals each month, there’s something about it that makes me more determined to achieve them.
Creating Goals for each month allows you to be on target while keeping your yearly Goals in mind. Your Goals can be a lot easier to achieve if you think about them monthly. Each of my monthly Goals are created with my bigger Goals in mind, for the hope that one day I would achieve everything. If you don’t create monthly Goals, I would recommend starting now.
I can’t believe it’s March! Before we move forward to the new month though, now is a good time to reflect on the previous month and what happened. There is no better way of doing that than with my Monthly Favourites, it’s time to reflect on what happened in February. It’s incredible what you get up to in a month as well as the new products you are exposed to.

It only feels like yesterday that it was January, now we’re starting May. Spring is definitely here and hopefully, it will stick around for a little while. I’m really enjoying sharing with you different National Day/Month, you get to learn something new and exciting. May marks Get Caught Reading Month, a nationwide campaign to promote the fun of reading books for all ages.
The campaign was launched in 1999 by the Association of American Publishers and now managed by Every Child a Reader with support from the Lois Lenski Covey Foundation. To celebrate Get Caught Reading Month is really easy you just need to dig your nose into a book and forget about the concerns of other peoples’ opinions. Get Caught Reading Month is a great chance to meet other bibliophiles as well!
It’s that time of the month again, I’m excited to be sharing with you today my thoughts on The Curse of Time by Marjorie Mallon! Unfortunately, there was no suitable book tour during March, so I had to skip that month, but I did share my thoughts on Suicide Squad thanks to March’s Reading Challenge from Blogger Book Nook. I’m trying my hardest to read at least one book each month, to reach my Goodreads Reading Challenge.
This blog book tour is hosted by Jenny Marston, over at Neverland Blog Tours, I have found some new loves since participating in book tours. I don’t think this is going to end with myself really enjoying this month’s book. I am the fifth stop on The Curse of Time Blog Tour hosted by Jenny, I am also sharing today with Whispering Stories so please check out her blog to read what she thought.
