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.

12 Days of Blogmas #1 // Introduction

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.

Kathleen Natural Tranquil Fields Review

I’m always interested in trying new products, as long as it features my favourite scents, I will give it a go. An email recently dropped in my inbox from Kathleen Natural introducing their Mini Bubble Bath and Shower Gel with a request to review a collection of my choice. There are three different moods to choose from; Citrus Cheer, Tranquil Fields and Sensual Rose.

Kathleen has released mini size versions of their luxurious, nourishing, delicate body care collection including Roll-on Fragrance Oil and Mini Bubble Bath and Shower Gel. Each collection is scented with three blended, pure essential oils – a top note, heart note and base note – to cover every mood. Of course, a travel size is perfect for on the move.

I chose Tranquil Fields because not only do I love Lavender and Vanilla scents, I wanted something to lift my mood and prepare me for the cold and horrible weather this Winter.

‘Tis the Season of Boots

There’s a pair of boots for every occasion and as soon as Sunday 23 September arrived, there’s even more of a reason to wear boots instead of shoes. Autumn is definitely the season of boots, there is no doubt about it! There are no better shoes to wear during the colder weather than boots. They keep your feet lovely and warm, you can even wear fluffy socks with them.

What I love the most about boots is that there pretty much a pair for every outfit and occasion. I am pretty addicted to boots and as soon as the weather starts getting colder, I bring out my boots and start wearing them. One way to get Winter ready is to purchase some new boots, an online store where you can purchase all kinds of boots? Yes, please!

Caring for my feet with Flexitol

Your feet are the most important part of your body, your feet touch the ground whenever you’re standing, walking or running, and they are extensions of the legs. They are the foundation of your body, which means keeping your feet healthy can help keep you healthy. I’ve never really looked after my feet, even when I had a job in retail where I’m on my feet most of the day.

Although your feet are out of sight, you should treat them as though they were still on display. Winter is now only around the corner, during the Winter feet can dry out, leading to cracked heels and peeling skin. I have always struggled with dry and cracked skin with my heels definitely going through the worst. For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been trying some products from Flextitol and I want to share my thoughts with you.

In total, I received four different products from Flexitol, Hand Balm, Cuticle & Nail Cream, Heel Balm and Moisturising Foot Cream. I recently shared my thoughts on Hand Balm and Cuticle & Nail Cream, they’ve been good to keep my hands feeling refresh during all these different weather conditions. Today I am sharing my thoughts with you on the Heel Balm and Moisturising Foot Cream.

This year has been a mixture of different weather conditions, from our Winter and the Beast from the East and our Summer hotter than Spain.

We sometimes forget to look after our skin, it’s something we need to start doing more.

5 Places I Would Love to Travel to

I have always loved to travel, there’s just something about travelling to a different country that makes me smile! Even though I’m 22 years old, I have only been abroad to three places, Gran Canaria, Majorca and Italy, all within five years. I would love to travel to more places but with money problems, it’s definitely hard too!

Travelling abroad definitely has its perks and reasons for enjoying, Yasmine has pretty much been everywhere but for her, she would always go abroad every year. Where on the flip side for me, I didn’t go abroad until I met her and I went with her family. I thought today I would share with you a couple of places I would love to travel to.

There are some great places in the world and I want to see them! Shall we begin?

Goodbye Chapped Lips with Dr.PAWPAW

During the Winter months, I find my lips are horrible, they become chapped and sore, it’s hard finding something that keeps this at bay. Especially with the change of weather recently, my lips have been chapped and I’ve needed something to fix them.
