Monthly Favourites // July 2020

Goodbye July! Hello August!

Ok I know it only feels like yesterday that I shared my June Favourites, well technically it was only two weeks ago! But here are my July Favourites. Normally, I would be saying, grab a cuppa and a biscuit, this is a long one but unfortunately, it’s not this time. July has been a little quiet, just like the other months! Although, July did actually go quite fast – I’ve still got an interesting Favourites post to share with you today.

I’m really looking forward to August, there’s even a couple of car shows planned. But before I move forward to August, I love reflecting on the previous month, yup that’s right I’m talking about my July Favourites. This month’s Favourites includes what I have loved throughout July. If you follow me on Instagram, you might just recognise some of my Favourites. What has been one of your Favourites from July? Let me know in the comments! I’ll love to know.

2020 Personal Goals Update

I cannot believe we’re already over half way through 2020, like where is the year going! Also I don’t even feel like I’ve achieved or done that much to be honest this year, and I suppose that’s kinda true with the whole lockdown and Coronavirus thing. At the moment, every month is definitely rolling into one, during lockdown, I even lost track of days. I’m glad I’m finally back into a ‘normal’. I hope you and your family are all keeping well.

Back in January, I shared with you my 2020 Personal Goals, here I outlined exactly what I wanted to achieve over the course of the year. Now we’re nearly in August, I thought it would be the perfect time to reflect on my Personal Goals and provide an update on progress. It also helps me to know where I am with my Goals and with five months remaining in 2020, if I have yet to achieve something that I set out at the beginning of the year, then I’ve definitely got the time too!

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 2020 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 but then also break them down to weekly and daily. If you don’t create Monthly Goals, now, more than ever, is a great time to start creating Monthly Goals!

Motorsports books on my bookshelf

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.

Looking Back on 2019: My Year in Review

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!

Monthly Goals // November 2019

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.

Monthly Favourites // October 2019

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!

Monthly Favourites // July 2019

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.

The Blogger Tag // Get to know me

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…

Fitness Goals for 2019

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.

Monthly Goals // July 2019

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!
