If you don’t already know, but I am a massive motorsports fan. If you didn’t know that, where have you been? If you’re new to An Ocean Glimmer, please say hello! If I’m not watching motorsports, you will find me at a race circuit. Of course, neither is possible at the moment so the next best thing is reading. My bookshelf is full of motorsports books, so I thought I would share my range of motorsports books.
Goodbye 2019, Hello 2020!
Not only is it a New Year but it’s also a new decade! I hope you had a lovely start to January, it’s one of my favourite months of the year as it’s perfect for reviewing what happened and how you can improve. Also, it’s really quiet! I love this as I can wind down before the excitement of the Summer which is one of the fast pace times of the year. Also, I’m able to catch up on my blogging game!
Before we move forward to 2020, I thought it would be good to look back on 2019 and review my favourite moments. I know I shared my Monthly Favourites, well most months, so really it’s just one big summary of all those months. I would be here forever if I shared EVERYTHING. So I’ll only be sharing one or two special moments from the month. Some months this was hard as soo much happened!
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!
Hello, there August!
Can you believe it’s already August? Please just slow down! Before I realise my birthday will be here and then it will be the end of 2019. There have been back to back adventures each weekend in July, another reason for the month going crazy fast. I don’t think I would want it any other way though! Also with work getting busier, that is also making my time go quicker. It truly is going by in a flash.
Before heading into August, now is the perfect 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 July. Thankfully, I’m able to speak about a range of different things, a lot went on and I’m excited to share them with you today, if you follow me on Instagram, you might just know what I’m talking about.
This post comes with a warning, grab a coffee and some snacks, this is going to be a long Favourites!
Missed my June Favourites? Head over here to see what I was loving
during the month.
I do apologise for the mini-blogging break, again… things have been semi hectic! As I am writing this I am only just recovering from an amazing weekend at Silverstone for the 2019 Formula 1 British Grand Prix. Check out my Instagram for daily photos of my adventures. I have been thinking for a little while about introducing more motorsports orientated posts, if you would be interested in an in-depth post about Silverstone, please let me know down in the comments!
Now though, let’s start today with The Blogger Tag. I love completing these types of posts, I love being nosy and it’s a great way to get to know other people! Created by Abbie over at Abbie Chic the aim of the tag is to get to know other bloggers, each question definitely allows that, also who doesn’t love getting to know other people. I always try to be pretty open about my life, rather than creating someone who I’m not. If you don’t like me for who I am, then I don’t want to know you!
Grab a cup of coffee and some snacks as I have answered the below questions from Abbie, it might just take a little while! I have also tagged some fellow bloggers to join in and answer the same questions on their blog.
Here are my answers…
If you’ve been following An Ocean Glimmer for a little while, you’ll notice I’ve been including a couple of Fitness Goals in my Monthly Goals. This might sound sad of me but these Goals have really pushed me and now I’m feeling really good about myself. I have now been visiting the Gym constantly for the past month. I would love to continue this as I think it’s improving my mental health.
I know we’re now halfway through the year but surely it’s never a bad time to start something new! Especially if it’s going to help with your overall health, I’m not one of those to wait until the New Year to change something about my life, there is no better time than the present to begin. I did though, wait until the beginning of June to begin my Gym membership, just something about it being a new month, new Goal.
Goodbye June, Hello July!
I hope you’ve had a lovely start to July. As it’s the beginning of a new month, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of June. Then create new Goals for July, I’m really excited about the upcoming month. I already have loads planned! I don’t think I’m home for one single weekend, it’s going to be a long but fun month.
If you want to see what I got up to in June, I have shared my adventures in my Monthly Favourites // June 2019 here. It’s great to review and reflect each month, sometimes you even forget what you’ve done.
Before I set myself some new Goals for July, let’s reflect on my June Goals!
Hello, there July!
Can you believe it’s already July? I’m so excited for the upcoming month, Summer is officially here! How long is it here to stay though? July brings with it a stream of exciting weekends, my July Favourites are sure to be packed and full. The countdown is officially on for the 2019 British Grand Prix at Silverstone, I am very excited for this, it’s the biggest event on my calendar each year.
Before heading into July, now is the perfect 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 June. Thankfully, I’m able to speak about a range of different things, a lot went on and I’m excited to share them with you today. There are even a couple of product Favourites, instead of just being all about the events.
It’s great to have a Goal in mind, not just a daily or weekly one but yearly as well. I love creating Goals, I feel so inspired and it’s a great way to continue achieving. Back in January, I shared with you my 2019 Personal Goals, here I outlined exactly what I wanted to achieve over the course of the year. Now we’re nearly in May, it’s the perfect time to reflect on my Personal Goals and provide an update on progress.
I know I share my Monthly Goals but this doesn’t show the overall year story. When I’m setting my Monthly Goals, I try and keep my 2019 Goals in mind. It can be hard achieving your Goals, especially if it’s one you want to achieve in one year. Your Goals can be a lot easier to achieve if you think about them monthly. If you don’t create Monthly Goals, I would recommend starting now.
