12 Days of Blogmas // Merry Christmas!

Can you believe what day it is today, that’s right, it’s Christmas Day! I hope you have all had a lovely day, opened all your presents and stuffed your face with amazing Christmas food. Don’t worry, I’m not writing this post on Christmas Day! It’s pre-written and scheduled because I need to spend the day with my family. I thought I would write this post as a reflection of December and 12 Days of Blogmas.

I would like to just say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported me by reading my blog throughout December. I hope to continue creating great content for you all! I am always so thankful to all of those who continually read An Ocean Glimmer as well as those who are new if that’s you, why hello there! Without you, I doubt I would have ever continued.

12 Days of Blogmas #6 // Christmas Spirit

I hope December is treating you well. For today’s post I wanted to talk about Christmas Spirit, those two words mean a lot to different people, I wanted to share what they mean to me. I don’t get into the spirit until 1st December, this might be shocking to a few. How can someone choose when to get into the spirit? I hear you ask. I have always had this rule, the decorations do not appear until on or after 1st December.

With a birthday at the end of November, I like to have a bit of breathing space after celebrating and enjoying to then get excited for Christmas. I know some people who start a week before December, shops are even selling cards and decorations as early as October! I much prefer to have 24 days of extreme Christmas spirit than have nearly a month and a half of watered down Christmas spirit.

12 Days of Blogmas #3 // December Goals

I’m really happy for December to be here as it’s finally Christmas! I’m sure some people are sick of Christmas already with shops having decorations up since September but I always start from the first of December. I have a couple of exciting things coming up but primarily I cannot wait to travel back home to Plymouth. It’s going to be strange not celebrating Christmas with my family.

Today I am going to be reflecting on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of November. I love reflecting and creating new Goals each month, there’s something about it that makes me more determined to achieve them. With Christmas around the corner, I’m excited for the upcoming month. Also, a few of my Goals for December are blogging based.

Hello December! Goodbye November!

The past month has been kind to me, I’ve still been very busy and enjoying a lot of different things. November has been a great month, it’s always one of my favourites months as I always seem to have many different things planned. Before we go full steam ahead for December, let’s first review November as I said above, there’s quite a lot to share with you!

One thing first, happy December! I’m so excited for the upcoming month, I am a massive fan of Christmas and this festive period. Being able to spend time with my family is great. I’m also going back home to Plymouth to spend Christmas with Yasmine’s family. Plymouth is always great at Christmas, I just cannot wait. There are many exciting plans to get me into the festive spirit.

Happy December!

Can you believe December is here? I have been waiting for this month for what seems like forever! I am so excited about the upcoming month, I have a lot of things planned to help me get into the festive spirit and its Blogmas time as a blogger. If you’ve been with me here on An Ocean Glimmer for the past two years, you’ll know I’ve blogged every single day on the lead up to Christmas. I’m doing things a little different for 2018, last year I really struggled with ideas for the 24 days.

I’m doing 12 Days of Blogmas!
