One Year of Dainty Sprinkles



Hey everyone !

Unfortunately I am unable to edit and upload my 'March Favourites & Thank You' video I filmed this morning because I've had other things occurring (cough cough ... Meltdown ... Cough cough ... Really bad meltown cough cough ... Sensory processing sucks.) and there was no way I was leaving my blog four days without a proper blogpost, etc. so I have taken my keyboard / matters into my own hands to type a thank you post.

I will hopefully upload my 'March Favourites' video tomorrow which will be my first video. I can't promise anything so fingers crossed it will upload and be up tomorrow evening. I'm also going to combine a few outfit of the days into one blogpost and will put that up on Sunday evening. Then we're back to school and I won't be on half as much : Sad Face : .

By the way it's my Mam's birthday today. Happy birthday Mam, I know you're reading this.

So on April 2nd 2012 I began 'Round and Round in Circles with Sprinkles on Top' and I was 'Vibhiann Rose' and then I had a meltdown and I was like 'I HATE EVERYONE' and didn't want my Mam to find my blog (she obviously did because I'm bad at keeping quiet.) and I renamed my blog 'Dainty Sprinkles' which is much less of a mouthful. Then I was up in Dublin the week after getting my photo taken for my article in Kiss Magazine and after that day my Mam let me change my name on it to my real name 'Grace' yay ! And then of course at the end of May I was in Kiss Magazine in an article that involved three other girls   and I and basically it was about how we weren't going to get our disabilities for one word get us down - Mine was to do with my dyspraxia and sensory processing. After that I began getting lovely comments and emails from people who had seen my article and had blogs themselves and I still comment back and forward and be Tweeting these people and that is when my blog really started because I knew that people were reading my blog.

So that was kind of the beginning of the story of Dainty Sprinkles and there is so much more to add to that story which I why I was recording for twenty minutes yesterday oops. 

While I am on topic I just want to thank everyone who has read Dainty Sprinkles whether you've been reading since the start or you're a new reader thank you so much ! I still can't believe I've over one hundred followers via GFC and the numbers aren't as large but are gradually increasing over on Bloglovin' and Facebook. All the feedback I receive makes me so happy and grateful and I can't thank you's all enough !

So thanks for reading this and any other blogpost on Dainty Sprinkles and here's to another year !
Fingers crossed for first video tomorrow,

Grace x

  2. Hey grace.

    I have been reading your blog since the very start (I mean before the kiss article, which I also read). I have only recently realized that this is one of my favourite blogs, not only because you have a great sense of fashion, but because you are an irish girl (a bit like myself) who has stuck to this blog for a whole year (unlike myself, I have had about thirty) and hopefully will for many more years to come.

    I feel a bit like I know you and your two rabbits, even though I have never seen you in person. And I am glad you are doing so well.

    Oh, and I love your hair :)

    Thanks

    AJ
