Welcome to tiny cup of cake! I’m Grace, the creator and author of this blog. I write about affordable fashion, beauty, and lifestyle topics of all sorts – from advice to personal posts. I’m a Seattleite, UW grad (Go Huskies!), and by day I work for a software company doing consulting on compensation.
You might be wondering, why the obsession with cupcakes? While I’m a foodie, I don’t actually have a huge sweet tooth (not all the time, at least) but I went through a phase where I loved anything with a cupcake on it. The lightheartedness around naming my blog after a dessert is just a reminder to myself to slow down and enjoy the little things in life. So if you’re here expecting to read baking posts…sorry. I’m here to share the little joys in my life because I firmly believe in appreciating the little things.
This blog is my creative outlet and ongoing “project” that I have loved working on since 2014. I absolutely love writing and everything about the creative process. It’s also part of my goal to never stop learning and teaching myself new things. I’m a digital marketing nerd and this is a hobby I am really passionate about! This blog is my little corner on the Internet that I hope to share parts of my life with you, provide helpful tips whether about style or beauty, but also to start conversations on topics that empower young women and help them be confident and successful. (Check out the ‘lifestyle’ category for some posts that go a little deeper than usual! If you need a starting point, search ‘introvert’ in the search bar on the right side of this blog.)
Some random tidbits about myself: I consider myself a dog-obsessed person (though I’ve yet to own a dog as a pet), an avid list maker, stationary lover, homebody, proud PNW resident, and foodie. I love Netflix binges in my pajamas, watching the sun set, listening to the same song over and over until I’m sick of it, finding something amazing on extreme sale, DIY projects, traveling, crossing off items in my planner, taking photos, and spending time with my friends, family, and fiancé Jared.
