I can’t believe it’s February! Where on earth did January go? Before we move forward to February though, I need to reflect on January. There is no better way of doing that than my Monthly Favourites. It’s incredible what you get up to in a month as well as the new products you are exposed to. January has been an incredible month, there was one moment that made January extra special.

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!
Here we are, the beginning of a new month, can you believe that it’s now September. I know I can’t! We are slowly approaching my favourite season, Autumn, I can not wait for the coming weeks. Jumpers, hot chocolate and cosy nights in, what more could a girl as for. Before jumping too far into the future, we first need to review what happened in August and let me tell you, there’s a couple of good ones.

Where on earth did June go!? When the time comes to write my Monthly Favourites, it always feels like yesterday that I was writing the previous month. June has always been a great month, it’s that time of year when your feet don’t seem to touch the floor there always seems to be something going on. Looking back, every weekend I have been out and about, which is a great problem to have, especially after so long of not being able to do anything.
I’m really excited to share my Favourites with you but with the power of social media, I’m sure you’ve already seen most of what I’m going to share with you.
Now, I’m sure if you really know me, you’ll know that I’m a massive fan of cars, of course, this goes hand in hand with my love for Motorsports. For the past three years, I have been the happy owner of an MG ZR in what seems to be the only colour they produced, Trophy Blue. There are still plenty of these on the road but some look worse for wear than others.
Since owning my little baby, I have been in love with her and when I give her some love, her colour truly pops! I have always received compliments for my car, even though underneath, I know she’s not the best she could be. One thing I love doing is cleaning her, but to do this, you need the correct products to really make her look beautiful as well as keeping her in good nick especially as she’s fifteen years old this year!
It’s always nice walking into a car dealer showroom and being able to choose your very own car, but unfortunately, not all of us are able to purchase a brand new car! Sometimes we look at alternatives to purchasing a car, looking on sites like Gumtree or even popping down to your local garage. In reality, buying a second-hand car can be a very painful experience!
I can speak from experience as the first car I purchased, a Peugeot 106, failed its first MOT with myself. The cost to get the work done to get it road legal was more than the car was worth! Here, I learnt the hard way of buying second-hand, from now on there are some handy tips that I will be sticking with every time I think about purchasing a second-hand car.
I thought I would share those with you today!

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.
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.
