Last month was the first month I introduced a post featuring my Goals for the upcoming month, I loved creating this post for you guys, I thought I would continue it! Not only will I set out goals for the new month, but also reflect on the previous month. If you didn’t read my September Goals, why not!? You can update yourself here, as I won’t be going into too much detail regarding last month’s Goals here. Definitely, go read them before reading my October Goals.
Can you believe that it’s the start of a new month? The leaves are starting to fall, candles are being lit and comfy jumpers are out! This must mean one thing, October is here. October is one of my favourite months, with both my Birthday and Christmas just around the corner, not to mention Halloween as well! For me Autumn is certainly one of the best months.
I do prefer the cold over the heat sometimes of our Summer, that’s actually when we do have a Summer here in the United Kingdom! With the beginning of a new month, comes my Favourites! I can not wait to share with you what I’ve been loving during September. It’s definitely been a hectic month for me, I will speak about this a little in my October Goals on Friday, so look out for that post.
I’m sorry things haven’t been perfect on An Ocean Glimmer at the moment, I’ve just been a little preoccupied with moving to a different part of the United Kingdom. Some of you may know that I used to live in Plymouth, a city in the South West of England. I have lived here my whole life, I have ever only known one house, so it’s been a pretty big thing to move five hours.
As I was receiving offers for interviews around the London/Reading area, I thought it would be good to live with my Uncle in Aylesbury. This does mean though I won’t be living with my parents, sisters and the puppy dog, who I will miss dearly. This all means more differences in my life, something I’m needing to get used to. But it’s all a part of growing up, I’m really excited by this especially to experience it with the partner
I feel like I’ve finally settled in and things are looking bright for myself and Peter, who also moved from Plymouth to live with myself in Aylesbury. Which means a new chapter in our lives together, something that I’m hoping will go well. Seeing as I lived in Plymouth for 21 years, I thought I would sum up some of the things I would miss.
I’m not sure about you, but July has gone pretty quickly for me, it’s already the 2 August with only a couple more months to go until Christmas! I’ve really enjoyed writing these Favourites posts, as it’s a perfect way for me to remember what I’ve done, just like June I’ve been pretty busy this month. For the past couple of months, I have loved taking part in Neverland Blog Tours.
If you haven’t been following An Ocean Glimmer, Neverland Blog Tours were created by Jenny the blogger behind Jenny in Neverland. She hosts a range of different Blog Tours for all kinds of book genres, including Young Adult, Romance, Thriller and Mystery, I’ve been very fortunate to take part in a couple of her Blog Tours including this month’s Blood Bank by Zoe Markham.
It’s officially less than six months to Christmas, half of the year has gone past and it’s been a crazy one! I don’t think I’ve stopped this month, there’s always been something going on. I thought I would share with you what I’ve been loving over the course of June, as well as what I’ve been up to, I didn’t realise how much I’ve done until putting this post together.
First up, I was very kindly invited to the wedding of Jodie and Adam, I have worked with Jodie since I started at Sports Direct four years ago and we’ve always got along soo well. When I received the invite I was very honoured and couldn’t wait, especially with it being at Dartmoor Zoo! Perfect place for a wedding. I’ve never mingled with my colleagues outside of work, so it was nice especially with me moving this month.
Is it just me or is 2017 going really quickly!? It’s now June which means another Favourites, let’s see what I’ve been loving during May. When I came home from Italy, the partner and myself saw Fast and Furious 8. I have loved this movie series since he introduced it to me. I love everything it stands for, family and the cars. I will admit, I cried a lot!!
I loved the direction they’ve taken this film in, it’s a lot more about family than the cars. I felt really sorry for Dominic, as he didn’t know what way to turn, in the end it worked out well for everyone. I love the return of Deckard and Owen Shaw, Jason Statham, like yees, I love him. All I’m going to say is you just have to watch this, so I’m not going to give away too much.
Where on earth did February go! Felt like yesterday that it was the end of January, now it’s the end of another month and on to another Favourites. It was quite tricky for this month, as there was nothing that stood out to me like last month. I have managed it though and here is a summary of those things I’ve enjoyed this month!
A few months ago, I was invited to join Beauties on Fire. After looking on their Facebook page, I felt the group was perfect to help me process further with my blog. But what exactly is Beauties on Fire I hear you say, here’s a little bit about the group.
Before you can move forward with the New Year, I think it’s always good to look back on the previous year to see your achievements. Looking at it, 2016 has been quite a successful year for me! A lot has happened and I am really proud of myself. I thought I would share with you today my highlights of 2016.
Here it is, the end of Word In Progress, it’s week four, end of June and it’s completed. Me and my friend Corinne Bygrave from Organic By Nerve have loved every minute of producing this podcasts. We are sad to see the end.
The theme of this weeks podcast is Summer 2016! We decided to tell you five different things we are looking forward to doing throughout our Summer. Some of these are pretty basic and normal, whereas the others are more specific to our unique tastes.
So without further adieu, here is week four of our podcast series: Work In Progress.
Thank you again for listening, we do hope you’ve enjoyed our podcasts! It’s not quite over yet as we’ve decided to produce a BONUS Podcast for next week. This will be a blooper reel from the past four weeks that we’ve been recording.
I would like to say a massive thank-you again to everyone who has been listening to our podcasts, we have really enjoyed producing them for you. Maybe in the future we might decide to produce some odd podcasts in relationship to anything that’s happening.
