A Day in the Life of a Race Maker

Despite either watching motorsports or attending events at Silverstone pretty much every weekend, I don’t near enough share motorsports content on An Ocean Glimmer. I am such a massive fan of Formula 1, World Endurance Championship and British Touring Car Championship, all championships that I fall in love more each time I watch. This passion led to me becoming a Silverstone Race Maker, I’ve spoken about this volunteer program just a couple of times here, showing my passion and exactly how much I love it!

I even shared an Introduction post here, before continuing this post you should definitely read this. I’m going into more detail about this program for this post. I haven’t done a post like this before, but I thought it would be good to share my typical day, including what happens and exactly what this program is all about. Of course, one event to the next can be different depending on the event. With this post, I’m just going to be generic. I hope you enjoy!

Monthly Goals // September 2018

A new month means new adventures and new Goals for the upcoming month, it’s goodbye August and hello September. I can’t understand where the past month has gone, especially as August is a five week month. I already know what’s coming as August wasn’t the best month, I know I haven’t been able to achieve them. I wasn’t able to push myself as much as I liked thanks to being super busy each week.

Today I will be reflecting on the Goals I set myself for August and creating some new ones for SeptemberAugust has been such a busy month! Who said August is quiet? Not only has work been busy but I have been up to a variety of things outside, from visiting Red Bull Racing and spending the weekend at Silverstone, I have shared my adventures in my Monthly Favourites // August 2018 here.

How I Juggle Blogging Whilst Working Full-Time

I have been blogging on and off for nearly two years, in this time I like to think I have learnt just a little when it comes to blogging but also how to juggle this while working. It’s not been until joining 4CM that you realise how much time blogging can take up, while in university, I could work around that but also had time on the weekend.

Now it’s only the weekend I designate my time to blog. Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t come without its problems, but thanks to being quite organised, I’m able to do it! It can get even harder when I’m away at Silverstone or just super busy travelling. I thought today I would share how I manage this and hopefully if you’re struggling to give you some handy tips.

#howmuchisenough // Skin Cancer Awareness Campaign

If you live in the UK, you’ll know how hot it has been recently, with temperatures hitting higher than 30°C as a sizzling heatwave grips the country. We all love soaking up the sun, whether that’s in the UK or abroad but unfortunately, it doesn’t come without its consequences. Skin Cancer, caused by exposure to the sun, this may be long-term exposure or short periods of intense sun exposure and burning.

With the heatwave showing no sign of easing up, Skin Cancer charities are deeply concerned about the lasting impact that overdoing it in the sun will have on our health. Altruist Dermatologist Sunscreen and Melanoma Focus, are hitting back with a new series of ‘scars and all’ content shorts to tell the human stories behind three common skin cancer cases.

Monthly Goals // July 2018

We’re already halfway through the year, which means it’s less than six months until Christmas! Can you believe it? I love writing these Monthly Goals as it helps me to be on target for my Personal and Blogging Goals. I feel without them I would forget and go off track, there’s nothing worse than getting to the end of the year and not achieving the Goals you set out at the beginning.

Today I will be reflecting on the Goals I set myself for June and creating some new ones for July. June has definitely been a great month and things have been just a little busy with a couple of car shows and visiting Plymouth. I swear I have not stopped and it’s gone so quick to think it’s now July. You can learn all about what I’ve been loving throughout June here.

Before I set myself some new Goals for July, let’s reflect on my June Goals!

Monthly Favourites // June 2018

Where on earth did June go!? When the time comes to write my Monthly Favourites, it always feels like yesterday that I was writing the previous month. June has always been a great month, it’s that time of year when your feet don’t seem to touch the floor there always seems to be something going on. Looking back, every weekend I have been out and about, which is a great problem to have, especially after so long of not being able to do anything.

I’m really excited to share my Favourites with you but with the power of social media, I’m sure you’ve already seen most of what I’m going to share with you.
