Monthly Favourites // June 2020

Goodbye June! Hello July!

I’ve disappeared for a little but I’m back! I’ve been a little preoccupied with personal things but thankfully we’re all good and I’ve got spare time to get back blogging. So that’s the reason why this Favourites post is a little late! Also where on earth is the year going? I cannot believe we’re half way through July already. Before we know it, 2020 will be over! And this horrible year can be forgotten.

Who knows what July will bring? It’s already been quite a good month! Nothing dramatic has happened which is nice after all the bad recently. Of course, my Favourites are a little different at the moment. This month’s Favourites includes just that, what I have loved throughout June. If you follow me on Instagram, you might just recognise some of my Favourites.

The Coffee Book Tag

It’s no surprise that I love a good tag! I have done plenty over the years of being a blogger. They’re always something I have a passion for. Unfortunately, it has been a little while since I have done one and if I’m honest, I have missed doing them. There’s not been one that has jumped out to me, until now of course! I found this tag over at The Wordy Habitat and it’s called Coffee Book Tag – two of my favourite things!

I’m definitely a coffee girl, I know my Instagram doesn’t show it at the moment, being in the lockdown and all but I used to spend quite a lot of my time at Starbucks. Also, there’s nothing better than grabbing a book and escaping from the world around you for a couple of hours. The Coffee Book Tag was really fun to answer; let me know what your answers would be down in the comments!

What I Received for Christmas 2018

I’m really excited to share with you today, what I received for Christmas, now I don’t want this to be a ‘show off’ post. I want it to be a reflection of my Christmas and thankful for what I received. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! Mine was lovely, spending it with Yasmine’s family in Plymouth.

There was a good mixture of receiving money and gifts, I swear as you get older it’s harder for gifts. I really struggled last year, when I was creating my lists I wanted to include items that I needed rather than wanting just for the hell of it. With that in mind, I think this list is a good reflection of that.

Enough chit-chat, let’s get started:

12 Days of Blogmas #8 // The Winter Tag

I hope you’re having a lovely December, it’s not long now until Christmas. I cannot believe where December has gone! I’m really excited and can’t wait to visit Plymouth, it’s always weird going back home, in a good way though. Today I am sharing The Winter Tag, let’s get into the festive mood.

I always find them a good way to get to know a blogger and also I love thinking about the questions. Sometimes they can really make you think, in the past, I’ve really struggled to answer and find a good answer. Also, they’re really good for spreading the love in the blogosphere by tagging fellow bloggers.

An A-Z of An Ocean Glimmer!

I’m not a very me, me, me person but I do feel that it’s good to get to know the person behind a blog. Recently, I’ve done a few different posts to introduce myself to you, including Things I Love About Motorsports and Things That Make Me Happy. April is turning into the month of getting to know me, Gemma Bray, the girl behind An Ocean Glimmer and today is no different!

At the beginning of this month, I came across An A-Z of Me from Zoe Jackson over at Just Zoe. I fell in love with this post as I found it interesting to pick just one thing that related to each of the 26 letters of the alphabet. Now, it seems like a semi-easy thing to do but I’ve got this feeling that when I actually get stuck in, it won’t be that easy… Like right now, I can’t think of anything for the last couple of letters.

Shall we get started with An A-Z of MeContinue reading “An A-Z of An Ocean Glimmer!”
