Today is a little special post, recently I was tagged by the lovely Zoe to do the 50 Questions You’ve Never Been Asked Tag. I love tags like these, as it’s the perfect way to get to know each other on more of a personal level! Some of these questions are pretty odd and hopefully, you’ll learn something new about me! When I finished Zoe’s, I fell in love and couldn’t wait to begin my own.
It’s officially less than six months to Christmas, half of the year has gone past and it’s been a crazy one! I don’t think I’ve stopped this month, there’s always been something going on. I thought I would share with you what I’ve been loving over the course of June, as well as what I’ve been up to, I didn’t realise how much I’ve done until putting this post together.
First up, I was very kindly invited to the wedding of Jodie and Adam, I have worked with Jodie since I started at Sports Direct four years ago and we’ve always got along soo well. When I received the invite I was very honoured and couldn’t wait, especially with it being at Dartmoor Zoo! Perfect place for a wedding. I’ve never mingled with my colleagues outside of work, so it was nice especially with me moving this month.
For as long as I can remember, I have loved photography! I just adore picking up a camera and taking photos of everything. I suppose for the past five years, my photography skills have improved, as with my College and University courses, I have needed these skills as modules have been centered around images. Photography has become a passion of mine now.
As you’ll know I’ve been to a couple of motorsports races to take photographs. I have loved these opportunities and maybe one day it will become a day job for me. To continue my monthly feature on National Days, I thought it would be fitting to speak about National Camera Day. It’s pretty self-explanatory what National Camera Day is.
You’ll all know the I’ve just finished my third year of university, but not before I created a 32-page magazine. Overall this is what I’ve loved the most during my time at the University of St Mark & St John, as I’ve created a lot of work that can be added to my portfolio. Rather than everything being coursework, we make actual things, including Radio and Film packages which I can show to future employers.
For my last module, I created a 32-page magazine with Corinne Bygrave from Organic By Nerve and another fellow Marjon student, Hannah Perks. We decided to create something very similar to Sound, the magazine we produced last semester, we had such a great time exploring Plymouth for the production of this magazine, that we felt it was fitting to create our own.
Is it just me or is 2017 going really quickly!? It’s now June which means another Favourites, let’s see what I’ve been loving during May. When I came home from Italy, the partner and myself saw Fast and Furious 8. I have loved this movie series since he introduced it to me. I love everything it stands for, family and the cars. I will admit, I cried a lot!!
I loved the direction they’ve taken this film in, it’s a lot more about family than the cars. I felt really sorry for Dominic, as he didn’t know what way to turn, in the end it worked out well for everyone. I love the return of Deckard and Owen Shaw, Jason Statham, like yees, I love him. All I’m going to say is you just have to watch this, so I’m not going to give away too much.
Welcome to another edition of Planner Girls Collective. If you missed a previous edition, you can find them all here.
This week’s topic is What Couldn’t You Live Without. I love this topic as stationery is a massive help in my day to day life, so it’s not that hard to choose something. I am going to limit myself to only one item, my Paperchase Organiser, now I will admit, I have had this Organiser for nearly three years.
If you’ve been following me for a little while, you’ll remember that mid-January I was nominated for The Liebster Award by the lovely Steph from Juniper Daze. Well, I’ve got some more exciting news, I found out that the lovely Zara from Its All Zara nominated me again for The Liebster Award.
A few months ago, I was invited to join Beauties on Fire. After looking on their Facebook page, I felt the group was perfect to help me process further with my blog. But what exactly is Beauties on Fire I hear you say, here’s a little bit about the group.
I’m pleased to say there will be a new weekly segment on An Ocean Glimmer. Along with other Bloggers, we will be chatting about a different topic every Monday. This is a recent group I’ve become a part of through Facebook. Planner Girls Collective was created by The Stationery Geekette aka Emma-Louise Smith.
I’m really excited by the prospects of this group, along with having the opportunity to meet some amazing blogs! The first topic for 2017 is 2016 Planner Overview/Aims for 2017. I thought this was perfect timing, as we are now into January and I should probably set out some goals for this year to make it a special year!
