Hi, I’m Grace. I created tiny cup of cake in 2014 as a creative outlet. I have always loved writing and this space has evolved over the years to become my lifestyle blog and small corner of the Internet. I write about my travels, favorite fashion and beauty finds, and sometimes a little more than that. You’ll find an honest account of all sorts of things that I have experienced in my life and this blog has very much grown up with me over the years.
I’m nearly a lifelong Washington state resident. I moved to Seattle in 2012 to attend business school at UW (go Dawgs!) and never left. By day, I work full time consulting with organizations on their compensation strategy. If that means nothing to you, don’t worry, most people don’t know what that means either. Basically, I help employers pay their employees fairly.
I am so happy you’re here and thank you for wanting to learn a little more about me. Have any other questions? Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why did you name your blog “tiny cup of cake”?
The name all started because I used to have an obsession with anything with a cupcake on it. In high school, all the gifts I ever received would have some sort of cupcake print on them. That certainly grew my sweet tooth and yes, I am very much a foodie. The lightheartedness around naming my blog after a dessert is also simply a reminder to myself to enjoy the little things in life. I am here to share the little joys in my life because I believe in appreciating the little things.
Who takes your photos?
I take all my own photos with either my iPhone or a DSLR that I bought off eBay. I am still learning how to use the DSLR, haha. If I’m in the photo, 99% of the time my fiancé, Jared, took it. (We are getting married in August woohoo!)
Where do you live?
I live in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, WA.
How tall are you?
5’3 on a good day.
What type of posts can I expect on tiny cup of cake?
At a high level, you can expect real, raw posts about my life. There are a lot of blogs out there and many perfectly curated ones. I am not here to compete with that. I am here to share my life in the form of reviews, guides, and reflections. My favorite types of blogs to read are the ones where I see beyond the highlight reel and like I’m observing someone’s real life. That’s what you’ll find here.
Do you make money off blogging?
Sometimes. This is not my main source of income, or even a significant portion of my income. Sponsored posts are very carefully planned out and I do not work with companies that aren’t a good fit. The most common way I make money on my blog is if you purchase something through an affiliate link. Some links you click on my blog will track your cookies for a few hours so if you end up buying something on the website, I might make a few cents or a few dollars, at no additional cost to you.
I’m visiting Seattle. Where should I go?
DM me or email me and I’ll send you some spots. I have been asked this for YEARS and I still haven’t written a Seattle guide. I swear I will do it someday…
