  • got my makeup done professionally at @bluemercury and LOVE the results. Sharing everything I learned + the details of a fun event (this weekend!) on today - link in bio! #bluemercury #exclusivelyblue
  • In honor of today's podcast episode with @blaireadiebee here is a photo that captures us perfectly. (Her being stylish; me being awkward.) I could not be more excited for today's episode of @badonpaperpodcast. It's a really good episode, I think you are going to absolutely love it too. Blair answers all of your fashion and style questions but also shares how she got her start in the blogging world, where she keeps all those sunglasses, how she gets that signature low bun, what "high school Blair" was like, how wedding planning is going, and a TON more! The episode is very funny and informative but it also might make you want to shop (I bought a new hairbrush,ordered the infamous Amazon coat, and spent 17 hours on ASOS after recording this ep.) ENJOY and don't forget to rate/review/subscribe! ✅✅✅ (📸 by @teekthesneak)
  • When a book is so good that even your cat needs to know what happens. (Obviously @tyrionpuff knows how to read duh you guys! 🙄🤣) QUESTION! What was the last book you read that you could not put down? I am DEVOURING The Neapolitan Quartet. I am about to finish book two (controversial but I liked the second one even better than the first as the characters were a little older and I could relate to them more). Would love your recs though! ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #neapolitanquartet #thestoryofanewname #amreading #bookstagram #stripereads (📸: @carterfish)
  • oh hi just your weekly reminder that @beccamfreeman and I are going to be Broadway stars on April 1st! ⭐️👯‍♀️⭐️ Kidding of course but our FIRST BAD ON PAPER LIVE SHOW at @carolinesonbway is now more than 50% sold out. And we haven’t even talked about it on @badonpaperpodcast yet or told you about our guests. More on that coming soon as we figure it out. 🙈 We are learning as we go but rest assured, when Becca and I decide to do something, we go big. So, get your tickets before they’re gone! (Link in bio!) This is completely surreal and so exciting for us, we can’t wait to see you there!!! ❤️❤️❤️ (We’ve had such an amazing response so far; hopefully we will do more of these and maybe visit other cities - for now let’s just see how the first one goes!!)
  • It’s been a while since I did one of these and I got a bunch of new followers last night and today after my Q&A (let me know how you got here - I thinkkk I have @the12ishstyle and @ashleyspivey to thank - thanks friends!! ❤️🙏🏼😘), so hello! I’m Grace. I have had my blog for nine years now and have been doing it full time for three and a half years. A few things about me: My favorite color is emerald green. I love all animals, especially cats. @tyrionpuff is the light of my life even when he hates me (approximately 75% of the time). My name is Grace but I am verrrrry clumsy. My favorite flavor is truffle; I put truffle oil and truffle salt on everything. Good food makes me happy. I try to do yoga every day, I started last December and have gotten addicted. And I’m a total bookworm; I read a LOT and post my reading list every month. Last but not least, an embarrassing one: I don’t have a driver’s license! I let it expire and forgot to renew and now I will have to take the test. I’m a terrible driver and see it as a favor to the rest of the world: you don’t want me on your streets!!! Thanks for following along and if you’re up for it, tell me something embarrassing about yourself!! 🤣😘 PS - this amazing @lkbennettlondon dress is on the blog today, link in bio! 📸: @carterfish #lkbennett #baublebar
  • Me after two hours of meditation. 🧘🏼‍♀️✨👄 Actually, it was a two hour class and only probably one hour of actual meditation but who’s counting!? I can’t even imagine sitting still for two full hours. 😬 It was amazing, though. My own meditation practice is pretty inconsistent so it felt really good to work on it in a group setting. -

Do you meditate? I’ve been on and off for about a year. When I am consistent I feel amazing but then I get busy or travel or life gets in the way. I really love the @headspace app but I know a lot of people don’t use any app. -

I decided after tonight’s workshop that I’m going to commit to ten minutes every day leading up to my next yoga retreat (in two weeks!). It’s a little thing that makes a huge difference. (Also for those who are curious, the workshop was with my yoga studio @skytingyoga with one of my most favorite instructors, @thechristophergolden- highly recommend!)
  • Friendship: I will help you workshop your dating app messages if you will take my #ootd. All whilst consuming copious amounts of oysters and prosecco and chocolate cake of course. 🍾💫🥂(Everything I’m wearing is linked in my instashop; link in bio!)
  • in crazy and exciting news, @carolinesonbway asked me and @beccamfreeman to do our FIRST EVER LIVE PODCAST for @badonpaperpodcast on Monday, April 1st! (A fitting date but no, this is not a joke!!!) We are FREAKING OUT and would LOVE TO SEE YOU THERE. Come on out, and bring all your friends! Link in my bio to get tickets and use code BOP to get $10 tickets! We cannot wait and are planning an amazing evening out for you. More to come, get your tickets before my family group text sells them all out. Seriously, my mom and my aunt are on the case. ❤️❤️❤️ (📸: @carterfish)
