Hello there! My name is Grace. I am a fashion-forward, mental health advocate, hopeless romantic, dream achiever, web tinker, and skincare-obsessed, overthinking girl from Cape Town. If that sounds like many things, too much to describe a person, well it means you can’t fit me in a box. I keep discovering myself so I have no idea how to perfectly describe the person that is me. Life should be like that, keep discovering yourself, keep growing, make mistakes and learn from them so that MAYBE at 40, you will know exactly who you are.
I make peace with my past, I know where I’m headed, I know who I would want to be, and still working on that, the world is my oyster I’m not yet ready to define myself just yet.
However, I’m not completely oblivious of the few things that have made a lasting impression in my life, things I levitate towards as well as stuff that brighten up my days. I will answer a number of get-to-know-me questions to elaborate.
