What I Received for Christmas 2018

I’m really excited to share with you today, what I received for Christmas, now I don’t want this to be a ‘show off’ post. I want it to be a reflection of my Christmas and thankful for what I received. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! Mine was lovely, spending it with Yasmine’s family in Plymouth.

There was a good mixture of receiving money and gifts, I swear as you get older it’s harder for gifts. I really struggled last year, when I was creating my lists I wanted to include items that I needed rather than wanting just for the hell of it. With that in mind, I think this list is a good reflection of that.

Enough chit-chat, let’s get started:

An Introduction To: Blogger Book Nook

I have some very exciting news to share with you, I am now apart of a community called Blogger Book Nook! I thought I would introduce you to this community today as I’ve fallen in love with it and there are some great bloggers involved. Growing up reading was something I always struggled with, my English skills were very poor. Until one of my teachers actually helped me and recommended some authors to improve my reading skills.

This is where my love for Jacqueline Wilson started and I still enjoy reading her books. Now I am pretty much addicted to reading! Whether it be DC Comics or Marvel and supernatural thrillers, I love to be sucked into a different universe. Recently though I’ve had to stop reading as much as I used to, thanks to the time I didn’t have during university. With me finishing my third year in May, I’ve now had a lot more time to actually read, as you know from my monthly book reviews with Neverland Blog Tours.

Now enough chit chat, shall we get started?

September 2017 – Video Games Day

One side of me that I don’t write too much about on An Ocean Glimmer, is my Geeky/Nerd side. I am a massive lover of all things Marvel and DC Comics, as well as playing video games! This is where today comes in, I thought it was very fitting to celebrate Video Games Day, who even knew this was a thing. I definitely did not until I came across it.

For long as I can remember, I’ve had some form of gaming controller in my hand, be it a PlayStation or even Xbox. Who remembers the Dreamcast? My all-time favourite console that I feel was definitely before its time! I’ve been very fortunate to grow up with a console, with my uncle a gamer as well, I’ve picked up a lot from him. I always used to play Halo and Dead or Alive with him!

August 2017 – Book Lovers Day

Since finishing university, I’ve had a lot more time on my hands, for this I’ve managed to read a lot more, one of my favourite hobbies! During my semesters, I would read books after books, but these would be boring books for my assignments. I lost interest in reading for fun as well as just not having enough time. If you’ve been following An Ocean Glimmer for a while, you’ll know that I’ve been taking part in some book blog tours.

These have fueled my reading needs and has shown me just how much I’ve missed reading for pleasure. Which is why I’m currently loving today, because it is Book Lovers Day! There are many different ways you can celebrate Book Lovers Day because we are all different, we need some that will fuel all our needs. You can read some of your favourite books, maybe something from your childhood that you loved or what about a trip to your local library and just sit there for hours and read all kinds of books.

I love everything from Vampire Diaries to Harry Potter and many great games.

Infinity Crates August 2016

It’s here! August’s Infinity Crates has been shipped and delivered.

Infinity Crates is a United Kingdom based monthly subscription box that offers a new theme every month. There are four different crates on offer, Classic Crate for £16.99 plus p&p, Premium Crate for £23.99 plus p&p, Kids Crate for £16.99 plus p&p and T-Shirt Only Crate for £7.99 plus p&p. Every box is guaranteed a POP! Vinyl figure and a T-shirt.

The exclusive theme for this month’s crate is Crew.

The exclusive Pop! Vinyl figure I received this month was Falcon. Like last month, I know this character as he is a main character from Captain America: Civil War. I’m excited with this figure as he’s got his own cute stand! He becomes even more cuter when I found out he was a bobble head! Out of the characters I could have received I am happy, well maybe apart from a character from Toy Story!

Along with being guaranteed a Pop! Vinyl figure, you also receive a T-Shirt. This month I received one in the theme of the Avengers. I absolutely adore the Avengers, especially Hawkeye and Captain America. Exactly like last month’s T-Shirt, it is a bright red! So I doubt I will be wearing this tee very much. Maybe it will turn into another bed time tee. I think I will have a pretty neat collection of bed time tees soon!

These are the only two big items I received in this month’s crate. I received a cute card holder from The Walking Dead, with my favourite character Daryl Dixon on the front. These always come in handy, especially when you are travelling! Carrying on from the Suicide Squad theme from last month, a small keyring is included. I adore this because after watching the film, I have been addicted to this series!

Along with the Suicide Squad keyring, I also received a Joker sticker! This is awesome as I am a massive Joker fan. Now just to find somewhere to put Mr. J. This sticker is the cartoon version of him which makes it even more awesome. I also received another bottle opener this month. This one though is themed around Justice League which is the DC Comics equivalent to the Avengers from Marvel Comics.

Now something that I’m not too interested in is a Dragon Ball Z lanyard. I’m not a massive fan of Dragon Ball Z so I doubt I will use this for anything. It will just add to my lanyard collection! They always seem to come in use for something. I’m not sure what exactly but I’m sure I will find something. It’s bright and vibrant exactly what the Anime television show is.
