About Grace

2:32 PM





Hi darlings! So glad you've stopped by. 

So you've found your way to my about me page and you're curious about me. I love that. Now here come a flood of pictures to help you get to know me a little more!

a little about me  

I'm 22 years old and just graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a degree in Management & Society



I love playing the cello. I've played everything from classical, symphonic, rock, and worship. 


One time I backpacked and walked through clouds & ate wild blueberries. That was cool. 


I've grown my hair all the way down my back and donated 19 inches of it. One of my greatest accomplishments :) 

I've been dating my highschool sweetheart for 4 years now. He makes me laugh, challenges me, loves me, and has been a big part of who I am today. 



I love to laugh and go on adventures. 


 I define myself with these four things: Integrity, Poise, Hard-work, and Kindness.
And I love the Lord with all my heart. He saved me and loves me more than I deserve. 

the makings of jadoregrace 

I never even considered making my own blog until one day in May of 2014 I dived right into creating a "fashion blog." It just felt right. People always complimented me on my make-up and my clothes so I felt comfortable sharing this aspect of my life publicly. One month later I was discouraged, I didn't have the money to buy new outfits every week like other fashion bloggers seemed to and my time and my closet were constraining me. Not only that, I became obsessive about achieving perfection in my outward appearance. It was discouraging.. So I stopped. People asked me left and right why I stopped posting but I didn't take that as a sign that I should keep blogging, I just told them it was over. 

A year later in June 2015, something clicked. jadoregrace was my creation, it was like my baby, I couldn't just throw away something I loved and had put long hours into. During the year that I had put jadoregrace aside, I'd always had the thought of it in the back of my mind. Finally, I realized that I wasn't limited to just blogging about make-up and fashion. There were so many other aspects of my life that I wanted to share to inspire others. 

what & why i write

And so here I am. This is a journey for both you and I. After I graduated I went through an extremely rough transition (still am) phase. I didn't know what I wanted to be when I grew up but everybody else seemed to know perfectly well. And so as a means to figure out my life and where my passions directed towards I started writing. This blog quickly became a source of peace in this rough transition and I've found it to become one of my favorite things to put time toward.

The name jadoregrace stems from a number of things that are important to me. Firstly the name Grace is my favorite part about myself, I was born and reborn with the grace of God and it remains my firmest foundation. jadore comes from my love of romantic things -- seeing that French is a romance language it seemed perfect for what I wanted this blog to represent, timeless & romantic class and grace. It's the perfect combination of elegance and emphasis on faith that I wanted my name to represent.

I'm dedicated to making jadoregrace a place of inspiration for you.
