I recently got in touch with Samantha from always believe in a miracle suggesting we do an Autumn Box Swap! I’ve seen these posts floating around the blogosphere for a little while now and wanted to share it with Samantha. We’ve been friends for just over a year, we met online and have even met in Birmingham! I was so excited and couldn’t wait to get started.
Samantha shares a wonderful range of posts from beauty, lifestyle and travel as well as her journey through remission after being diagnosed with stage 2B Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a type of blood cancer. She also writes about relevant topics as a blogger such as What is DA & How to Improve it. The perfect way to keep up to date with Samantha is by following her on Twitter. I also adore every photo of hers! They are absolutely gorgeous so why not head over to Instagram and give her a follow.
Today marks National Fragrance Day, I adore fragrances and sweet smelling things, as you could probably tell by my couple of fragrance reviews, including Monsoon Rose Gold and Accessorize Love Lily. To celebrate, I wanted to review a couple of fragrances that I’ve been dying to try recently.
First though, what exactly is National Fragrance Day?
It’s as simple as celebrating your favourite scent if you’re a lover of fragrances you can celebrate just by choosing a new fragrance but you could even take a trip to the florist if you enjoy the scent of flowers or how about baking a cake if you like that sweet smell. Whatever is enjoyable for your noses, do it, our nose knows best.

One thing that I’m a little weak for is adorable bracelets, I have a small collection and it’s definitely growing. I recently fell in love with a gorgeous bracelet from Judy Luxury and I was lucky enough to receive it from the online retailer of handbags, jewellery and accessories. I received the Designer Rose Gold Bracelet, it soo pretty and definitely adds a good vibe to your outfit.
At the moment, I am really enjoying finding new fragrances, I’ve come across a lot of different ones as you’ll know from my reviews of Firedance and Love Lily. Today I’m going to share with you my thoughts on the new fragrance from Monsoon, Rose Gold. This is the first time I’ve tried a Monsoon fragrance, so I am very excited, I love the strong presence of Rose Gold. From the name to outer packaging and the bottle, it is covered in Rose Gold, which I absolutely adore! And not just because I am a blogger.
From the first time, my eyes were laid on this fragrance, I was in love! It’s such a luxurious fragrance with it being housed in a premium heavyweight box, it’s soo nice. The packaging, bottle and the fragrance itself works hand in hand to create a fragrance that screams luxury. I’ve even kept the box to store it in just because I can’t think to part with it. For this fragrance, Monsoon worked with Fragrance & Beauty Creations and renowned perfumer Christian Provenzano to create a signature fragrance.
If you know me well, you will know just how much of a fan I am of stationery! I always seem to be picking up new items, I just can not help myself. So when Creoly asked me if I wanted to collaborate with them, I jumped at the opportunity. I am now a part of their “Early Bird” Review Club, I will be receiving some of their favourite products to review here on An Ocean Glimmer. I am very excited about this collaboration and I can not wait to see where we go together.
Before we go into my first product I received, let me tell you a little bit about the company. Creoly are a small team of stationery addicts who work to source and offer a range of stationery for both personal and business customers. They offer a range of products from Notebooks & Journals to Pens & Pencils. As well as the smaller items like Paper Clips, Binder Clips and Sticky Notes. They sell their own branded items and big names like Filofax, Leuchtturm1917 & Moleskine.
I adore venturing into Paperchase to see if they’ve got any new items I can pick up, everything is super adorable and at a fairly reasonable price. Before my last trip into Paperchase, I was looking on their website to see if they had any new sets. I came across the Mora Flora range and fell in love!
It’s Day 2 of our Blogger’s Christmas Beauty Brawl 2016 and I couldn’t be more happier to show you what I’m reviewing. Today, I will be reviewing the Super Natural Eyeshadow Palette from Barry M. Now, I will let you know on a little secret, I am not the biggest fan of make-up, so I decided to go with a colour scheme that I would wear daily.
