Bloggers Uncovered: Sinead from 'Dainty Dollymix'

This is the very last of my Bloggers Uncovered series- I've had an amazing experience chatting with all these lovely bloggers! I hope you have enjoyed the series, and you may see it again sometime soon.. 

Hi Sinead! To start off with, why did you start your blog Dainty Dollymix?
Hi Sophie! I started my blog in the first instance so i could follow and comment on other blogs that i loved, i never started it with the intention of blogging myself! It was around the time when i started getting into high end brands such as MAC and thought why not share my buys with others, as i love reading haul posts! It started from there really! I have loved reading beauty blogs and watching youtube beauty gurus for the longest time!

Do your friends and family know about your blog?
The first person i told was my boyfriend literally as soon as i started my blog, and he has been so supportive! It took me about a year of blogging to finally tell my mum about my blog as I didn't think anyone else would 'get' it, but she thinks its amazing too! None of my friends know about my blog, although i would love to tell them!

Do you think you'll still be blogging in 10 years time?
I'm not sure, who knows whats going to happen next week never mind in 10 years? If the love and passion is still there then im sure I will most definitely be blogging as its such a huge part of my life now! I'm not too sure how I filled my days before blogging! :)

Would you consider yourself good at HTML/CSS?
Absolutely not! ha! I dont even know what CSS is! I am okay at fairly simple HTML such as changing the fonts of titles but I have to follow instructions down to a tee and get it wrong a lot of the time! Its all about trial and error!

Do you like to take part in the #bbloggers chat on Twitter?
I have never really taken part in the #bbloggers chat on twitter, dont get me wrong I really do think its a brilliant idea for beauty bloggers to share their opinions and ideas with others but it's never really been something im interested in, although i do tend to follow the chat and have a read of what others are saying!

Have you ever been to a blogging event? 
I have indeed! The events that i have been to are the Aussie events as i have been a Aussie angel for quite some time! Every event has been amazing & getting to put faces to the names of bloggers you talk to all the time & meeting new people is incredible!I have been invited to so so many events that i unfortunately have to miss out on because i live up in Leeds and takes a lot of time & money to get down to London!

Who are your favourite established bloggers?
There are so so many to chose from! I would say my favourite established bloggers are Kelly, Gemma, Carla, Milly, Zoe, Zara and Sarah.

Who are your favourite new bloggers (under 18mnths)?
Again, there are so many to chose from as i have so many favourite blogs! Vivianna, Charlotte and Gem are some of my favourite newer bloggers! I have a page on my blog of all the different blogs i love which can be found here

What is your favourite post from your blog and why?
My favourite post on my own blog is my original make up vanity and storage collection which can be found here It got so many amazing comments, is one of my most popular posts to be read to date and i had lots of fun taking photos and writing it!

Which camera/device do you use to take photos for your blog?
I use a old school fujifilm digital camera that im not even sure if they sell anymore its that old & was so super cheap! Its about 9 megapixels but has an amazing macro setting that is absolutely perfect for my close up pictures! I call it my blogging camera!

Name one thing you like about blogging?
One thing i love about blogging is meeting the most amazing people along the way! I am privileged to have met the people i have and to call them real life friends is incredible!

Name one thing you dislike about blogging?
Peronally blogging wise, there is not one thing i dislike about it! I love every aspect and that is why i keep on doing it! I am so passionate about writing and beauty, there isnt a day that goes by that im not doing something in regards to my blog, i love it that much!

And a weird one, would you rather be a tiny rhino or a giant hamster?
haha! love this question! I think i would actually rather be a tiny rhino! Not sure why, but a small version of such a scary animal like a rhino would be amazing!
Sinead is just such an amazing blogger. I really look up to her and her blog- it's just exactly what I want Beauty Comes From Within to be in the future. We all know she's a massive blogger (popularity not size!) but her feet are firmly on the ground and she's never one to ignore you! She's just a really lovely person. Remember to check her blog out here if you haven't already.
