I don’t show you my love enough here on An Ocean Glimmer, I’m going to try once in a while to create a stationery roundup, haul call it what you will. Maybe even once a month!

5 Things I’m Grateful For

It’s easy to concentrate on all of the things I don’t have in life and be upset and bitter about it, but I don’t and I’m not. I’m grateful for the things I do have and have had in my life. Gratitude is one of the very best ways to improve your mood, it can be hard to focus more on the positive things in life. As humans, we will always pay more attention to the negative over the positive.

It can be hard to believe everything will be okay when you’re having a hard time. Today I wanted to write a post on the things I’m grateful for because there is so much to be grateful for and we can often forget how lucky we are to have what we have. With all the awful stuff going on in the world right now, I thought there was no better time to share it than the present.

Self-Care in Spring

Now I know to most people believe we’ve had Spring for a couple of weeks. For me, I believe 20 March 2019 is the first day Spring. We’ve had an interesting start to March, with Storm Freya gracing us with her presence. We’re on Day 6 of the Astronomical Spring, I thought I would continue the theme of Self-Care and looking after yourself this Spring, by sharing a couple of Self-Care ideas.

Last week, I shared with you my face mask collection, a perfect addition to any pamper evening. Spring is the perfect time to reevaluate your routine and add in new products, also there’s something about Spring and the freshness of everything. Animals are being born, flowers are blooming and it’s the perfect time to think about yourself. Spring is a magical time of the year.

Pamper Evening with Face Masks

🌸 Hello first day of Spring! 🌸

A pamper evening isn’t a relaxing one without a bubble bath and a face mask. I am coming late to the face mask party, it’s only recently that I’ve fallen in love. My last trip to Wilko was successful, I managed to grab a small selection of 7th Heaven Easy Peel Masks at just £1 each. I also have the Deep Cleansing Bubble Mask Blueberry from the Autumnal Box Swap with Samantha. J.

Today I thought I would share with you my face mask collection and what I’ve been loving recently. These are all a must addiction to make a perfect pamper evening. I’m amazed at the prices of these masks! It’s perfect for your pamper evening, you can get a lot for your money at £1 each. The Deep Cleansing Bubble Mask Blueberry from Primark is even less at 80p. I have heard good things about 7th Heaven, I’m very excited to try them all.
