Thankyou & Merry Christmas!

Hello Everybody! Tomorrow is Christmas! I Can't believe I am actually typing that, it feels like this year flew by but all at the same time like it was years ago that we had our last Christmas. I thought I would keep today's post short and sweet as were all very busy wrapping presents, pampering for tomorrow and curling up watching our Christmas films but I wanted to say a huge thankyou to everyone who has read, followed, commented, subscribed to my blog this year it means the world to me. I have been given so many opportunities this year that I didn't think I would ever get, I have came so far personally this year and I think this has really shown on the blog.

I can only imagine what 2016 is going to bring for me, but from the bottom of my heart thankyou! I hope you all have the most amazing, festive Christmas with your loved ones and get spoilt rotten and bring the NYE in how ever way you want be that in a club, house party, with a glass of wine on the coach or simply just reading blog posts. Merry Christmas and a very very happy new year from OliviaCheryl.

Taking Advantage Of Blogmas For 2016

Hello Everybody! With 2015 soon drawing to a close I have been thinking a lot on how I can improve my blog in 2016. I want to push myself to create a better blog, something I can be even more proud of and there are so many ways to do this. Improve my photography, manage all my social media better, keep an eye on blog stats, experiment and try new things but seen as I am doing blogmas I thought I would take the opportunity of posting every day to suss a few things out. 

I check my analytics usually twice a month if that, numbers isn't something I want to get wrapped up in, okay hitting that next goal on Twitter or Bloglovin is always an awesome feeling but you can't let it control your success or happiness within your blog but I do believe setting yourself targets and analysing your blogs engagement and stats will help you in the long run. I decided to monitor my stats every day from Google Analytics, I would never suggest using Blogger as your source for stats as it fluctuates dramatically and is never accurate. Google Analytics uses a code you embed on your blog to pick up things like your views, bounce rate, returning visitors, users etc and I have popped all of this in an Excel document, an idea I actually got off Jem (DorkFace) but she uses Excel for other things.

What I Achieved On OliviaCheryl In 2015...

Hello Everybody! This is the second time I have wrote this post because I deleted it the first time, TECH GENIUS! But I thought I would write about what I have achieved in 2015 on OliviaCheryl I done a similar post on my Look Back At 2015 but I wanted to focus on the blog alone. My blog may be small in the blogging world but I am damn proud of it and how well it is doing! Every time I gain a new follower on twitter, see I got new comment on a post, a new bloglovin follower I am SO happy because it actually means there are people out there who read my tiny little blog and that's amazing. So to any of you reading this Thankyou so much, I have loved my past year blogging and here is to hopefully many more! This was 2015......

My first time working with a brand!

Aloha Lola Christmas Cards

Aloha Lola Portrait Card with christmas decorations JOY Merry Christmas

Hello Everybody! If you follow me on Twitter you probably know I'm an addict, I am on there 24/7 if my scheduled tweets aren't posting I'm posting from my job, my volunteer job, my bed, the shop I'm a complete addict so it was no surprise when I seen Aloha Lola popping up all over my feed. Aloha Lola creates hand drawn cards for any occasion from greeting cards to caricature cards and with Christmas coming up I wanted to get an extra special card made for my mum and her partner. They got engaged earlier on this year and this marks their first Christmas engaged so wanted to make it a little bit more special with a card from Aloha Lola!

How To Save Money Around Christmas!

Paper chase boots body shop super drug costa club cards money ten pound note twenty pound note christmas snow flakes

Hello Everybody! As the festive season is well and truly upon us and we are all slowly finishing buying all our presents in the local Christmas markets I know there are still a few people out there who haven't even bought one present so this post is probably for you. I myself was on a budget this year, Christmas can be expensive with shops putting huge gift sets out that can knock you back nearly £50 a set so I thought I would put together a couple of ways you can save money this Christmas!

An Interview W/ Jessica & Her Journey!

Hello Everybody! I am back once again for the third month of my blogger interviews with a blogger I can't usually go a day without talking too! She is beautiful, hilarious and can drink me under the table! (Probably, I'm guessing as we have never met and she's a pretty good drinker! We will discuss drunk phoning me later!) It's Jessica from Jessica And Her Journey! Jess recently set up her new blog retiring from her old blog and seen as I love her to bits thought it was only right to introduce her to you all! FYI The drunk calls were never answered because I was watching PLL but I did get some last night too which were quite entertaining!

A Look Back At 2015!

Hello Everybody! Looking back at this year I wasn't expecting to be sitting where I am, a lot has changed this year personally, work wise, future wise it's crazy what a year can do and I am so excited for 2016 I can't quite put it into words! I wanted to gather a few of my favorite moments together from this year....a lot may have changed and I may have had a really tough year personally but I would never change anything or how this year went, I have been shaped into a different, stronger and more mature person this year! I got my first Full Time job, didn't have a clue what I was doing in my future, I went through an awful breakup and went into a cave for a solid 2/3 months, decided on my future and started being called Miss Williams, decided what my first university choice was the list goes on. It has been the hardest year to date and sometimes it's hard to remember the good through the bad but I wanted to remember the amazing times I did have this year! I don't have a lot from this year as I can honestly say half of it has been really tough and I haven't wanted to do anything but here is it.......this was 2015.

The nights I got to see what my mum does best, organising her raves and I was the proudest daughter there ever was!

Getting Into The Christmas Spirit!

Hello Everybody! I am so late into this blogmas it's not the 3rd! I have been so busy with work I have been too tired to sit down and do anything other than binge watch Pretty Little Liars! (No spoilers! I am on season Five!) Today I am feeling extra festive, I am currently sat listening to Michael Buble's Christmas Album, I am far from the Grinch I feel festive in October usually so today thought I would share some tips on how to get yourself into the festive mood if your still not feeling it! I also thought I would do a Throw back Thursday to this picture of me and Elyse Christmas day 2012! How time flies!
