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, I spent Christmas Eve with my Grandparents, Christmas Day with my parents and then Boxing Day with Yasmine and my Uncle.
I don’t want to go into too much detail here as I spoke about Christmas in my December Favourites. Check that post out here!
Goodbye October, Hello November!
I hope you’ve had a lovely start to November. I know I’ve been away for a while so I haven’t got any Goals to reflect on from the previous month. I will be creating new Goals for November. I’m really excited about the upcoming month. It’s my birthday month! I’m going to keep going on about it until the day after my birthday. I’m always really excited about my birthday, I don’t see that changing any time soon.
Now as mentioned above, I do not have October Goals to reflect on so I’m going straight into setting Goals for November. It’s going to be a good month and my Goals will reflect that. It’s primarily about events that are planned for the month, there are just a couple going on! Fingers crossed that I’ll be able to achieve all these Goals and continue to set them each month.
Hello, hello! I know, you’ve probably been thinking, where on earth has she been?
Well, I’m back, I know it’s been a while, things have been pretty busy! But as Winter is fast approaching, I’m less busy and can put the time back into An Ocean Glimmer. Of course, this leads to a perfect timing with my Monthly Favourites for October. It was a great month and to be honest, I don’t know where it went!
It was another month of packed weekends going out on adventures. I know I haven’t shared these adventures on Instagram like I would normally, to be honest, the month has just gone past in a blur. I have my fingers crossed that I can change this for November and I’ll be back in the Instagram and blogging game once again.
Just because I’m a little excited, hello November!

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.
Here is what I received in the ZBOX MCM Comic Con Exclusive.

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.

during the month.
Today I am going to be introducing you to Statement Made Jewellery, specialists in handpicked pieces with a personal touch and want their collections to reflect the uniqueness of their customers. Statement Made was born from a passion for jewellery to have a deep connection with its wearer, to be adorned by all, and to express yourself in new and exciting ways.
All of the designs are hand-picked, wearer tested, positively quirky and designed with the modern woman in mind. The woman behind Statement Made Jewellery is Steph, she has worked with jewellery for nine years, it was her first and last crafting love. At the end of 2014, Steph founded Statement Made Jewellery to craft personalised, quirky pieces that are great for telling a personal story!
I hope December is treating you well. For today’s post I wanted to talk about Christmas Spirit, those two words mean a lot to different people, I wanted to share what they mean to me. I don’t get into the spirit until 1st December, this might be shocking to a few. How can someone choose when to get into the spirit? I hear you ask. I have always had this rule, the decorations do not appear until on or after 1st December.
With a birthday at the end of November, I like to have a bit of breathing space after celebrating and enjoying to then get excited for Christmas. I know some people who start a week before December, shops are even selling cards and decorations as early as October! I much prefer to have 24 days of extreme Christmas spirit than have nearly a month and a half of watered down Christmas spirit.
I’m really happy for December to be here as it’s finally Christmas! I’m sure some people are sick of Christmas already with shops having decorations up since September but I always start from the first of December. I have a couple of exciting things coming up but primarily I cannot wait to travel back home to Plymouth. It’s going to be strange not celebrating Christmas with my family.
Today I am going to be reflecting on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of November. I love reflecting and creating new Goals each month, there’s something about it that makes me more determined to achieve them. With Christmas around the corner, I’m excited for the upcoming month. Also, a few of my Goals for December are blogging based.
Hello December! Goodbye November!
The past month has been kind to me, I’ve still been very busy and enjoying a lot of different things. November has been a great month, it’s always one of my favourites months as I always seem to have many different things planned. Before we go full steam ahead for December, let’s first review November as I said above, there’s quite a lot to share with you!
One thing first, happy December! I’m so excited for the upcoming month, I am a massive fan of Christmas and this festive period. Being able to spend time with my family is great. I’m also going back home to Plymouth to spend Christmas with Yasmine’s family. Plymouth is always great at Christmas, I just cannot wait. There are many exciting plans to get me into the festive spirit.

I’m really happy for November to be here as there are so many great things planned, I’m not as busy as October but it’s still going to be a cracking month. It’s going to be excited over the coming weeks as there are a couple of things lined up. For starters, November is my birthday month, with a fun action packed weekend and I will be at Silverstone for a murder mystery.
I have been able to achieve most of my Goals I set at the beginning of October I have proved that if I put my mind to it, I can achieve. Here we are again to first reflect on my previous Goals and then set some new ones for November. I visited Castle Combe with my MG Rover family, picked a pumpkin for the first time and wandered around Milton Keynes.
