Why did you start blogging?
When I was younger I used to spend hours looking at peoples blogs, at the time though I remember blogger being used to document a lot of pretty/inspiring images (a lot like tumblr.) I used to save these images to my computer, print them out and stick them on my wall. I always remembered feeling inspired and not so alone after reading blogs. My first attempt at blogging came quite a few years later, as a child I always had a journal that I used to write in religiously, I felt lost not being able to document my day, or pour out my heart when I felt sad or make lists of dreams and goals, but with time I stopped writing in my journal. It wasn't till a couple of years ago I realised how much I missed keeping a journal, I tried several times to get back into it but couldn't so I decided to create a blog instead. Now my first blog which got deleted a while a go included images and quotes etc. safe to say it didn't work, so I then spent a lot of time on tumblr, since tumblr is like a scrapbook of images, I loved it but then I wanted something more personal so I went back to blogger and that's when Dainty and Ivory began.
Why Dainty and Ivory?
Coming up with a blog name was such a hard task for me, my mind just went blank. This blog was first called hannaandherself, I didn't like it but it would do until I could think of something more suitable. For a while the word Dainty kept popping up and I wanted to use it but I didn't have another word for it to go with. At the time the foundation I was using was in the shade Ivory, I put Dainty and Ivory together and liked it.
