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!

As the day, month and year go by, we are creating memories and moments, I’m such a big advocate of creating moments to remember. It has become easier to create memories thanks to the digital change, I remember growing up and having to wait weeks until you could view the images you snapped. Now all smartphones are cable of showing the image instantly.
Today, I thought I would do a special post, I have been blogging since October 2013, meaning this year I will be celebrating six years of An Ocean Glimmer. I thought I would go back through the archive of An Ocean Glimmer and share with you a couple of my favourite moments since becoming a blogger. Now grab yourself a cuppa and a couple of snacks, this is going to be a long one!
This Christmas, why not visit a small business to purchase your gifts from, over the past couple of months I’ve brought from a couple of small businesses. There are so many good businesses out there that hopefully will allow you to shop for almost anyone. Also, I don’t know about you but I swear it leaves such a good feeling in yourself.
I always try to explore places such as Etsy to come across gifts, with a simple search you can uncover a variety of gifts. Just be careful you don’t spend the whole day searching, once you start, it’s very hard to stop. I have got lost in Etsy a couple of times, thankfully I do purchase a couple of things, maybe more than I should have.
Today, I wanted to share with you a couple of small businesses in this handy Small Business Gift Guide.

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.
Missed my October Favourites? Head over here to see what I was loving
during the month.
I adore Autumn! It’s definitely my favourite season, there are a couple of special moments to celebrate in this season, including the big one my birthday. I have seen a couple of Autumn Tag in the blogosphere and had to complete one myself! I love these as they’re a great way to learn a bit more about someone and they definitely get your brain working.
Normally I am tagged to complete one myself but for this particular one, I came across it on another blog. I fell in love with the questions and just had to participate myself. Autumn is definitely a season that makes me all warm and fuzzy inside, there are so many reasons to love Autumn including autumnal fashion, cooler weather and chill nights in.
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.
Hello November! Goodbye October!
The past month has been kind to me, I’ve still been very busy and enjoying a lot of different things. At moments October has felt a long month but now looking back, it’s gone really quickly! October has always been a good month, for me, Autumn kicks off and I can start enjoying the holidays.
Before we go full steam ahead for November, let’s first review October as I said above, there’s quite a lot to share with you! One thing first, I hope you all enjoyed Halloween and hopefully had a load of goodies. I’m really excited for November as it’s my birthday month! Even though it’s getting colder, I’ve still got exciting outdoor plans.
Over the past couple of months, I have shared with you some interesting National Day that people across the United Kingdom celebrate. Today is no different as we’re celebrating Evaluate Your Life Day. Sometimes it is a good idea to think deeply about your life, at least once a year. Today invites you to calm down and deliberate about the choices you took and which way you will keep on going.
Of course, there are always questions and thoughts that disappear from the mind, if you do not take the time to think about those things, perhaps they’ll come to haunt you one day. Therefore it is better to lean back and confront the complicated questions of life on Evaluate Your Life Day. I love the thought of this National Day, as it is a great opportunity to figure out if you’re on the correct path.
Goodbye September! Hello October!
I’m really happy for October to be here as there are so many great things planned, I am pretty much busy each weekend. I thought October would start to slow down, oh how was I wrong. Autumn is here and it’s time to start getting festive, both for Halloween, my Birthday next month and finally, yes Christmas. I’ve had a really good September and have definitely felt good about myself.
Despite being really busy, thankfully I have been able to achieve quite a lot of my Goals. I have proved that if I put my mind to it, I can achieve, I have pushed myself and have been rewarded. I attended my last event at Silverstone this season as a Race Maker, visited Western Super Mare with my MG Rover family and work has been hectic as anything. I have shared my adventures in my Monthly Favourites // Septemer 2018 here.
