About Our Website:
We are a lifestyle blog that revolves around 4 personas; the Creative, the Adventurer, the Sweetheart and the Fashionista
We started because we were tired of seeing people overwork themselves and get caught in daily routines only to realize their life is quickly passing away. Instead we want to inspire people to be intentional with their time. To be creative and try new things, to take random roadtrips or explore the treasures of your own city, to gathering with friends and family and to be brave to follow your heart in your entrepreneur dreams. We want to break the cycle of doing life and instead we want to LIVE life and BEAUTIFULLY, the way it was intended.
Our focus is on community. We love connecting with one another, working together, discovering new places together and ultimately inspiring one another in life. Although this starts locally with our events and Discover Your City series we also want to grow our community online as well. Currently we do that by connecting with others for blog posts but in the future we hope to grow to online workshops.
Our 4 Website Aspects
Our website not only revolves around 4 Personas but it also has 4 puzzle pieces that brings it all together.
The Blog: We want our blog to be an inspiration, a place to learn, a place to connect, to discover, annnd to be creative. We are a community based blog where many ladies come in and write on a specific topic, usually what’s close to their hearts. We do this to connect one another and to bring in someone who has more experience. We don’t have expertise in each of these categories but there are many who do. If there’s something you’d like to write about let us know or submit a blog post here. Every blog post has a little blurb at the bottom that identifies the author and describes them in a few sentences.
Shop: Our shop is fun in that it’s organized by the 4 personas. You’ll start to see a color patterns, or style pattern as you look through each of them. For our shop we mix both retailers we love annnd small businesses. We think it’s important to make these smaller businesses shine.
Discover Your City: This series is basically us mapping out the local places to visit in OC & LA. We not only share photos of the food or products, inside and outside of the restaurant or store, but we also do interviews with the owners. It’s a fun inside scoop on the places we love. Make sure to check it out if you’re not sure what to do this weekend. 😉
Events & Workshops: We LOVE hosting events! To reach out to different vendors and companies, to find the perfect place, to decorating with photography in mind. ALL of it! Then to see the ladies come in and running around taking photos for their instagram is such joy to us. But our most favorite part of these is the community that comes from it. We are so encouraged to meet the ladies in person and to hear your stories. For this year we wanted to create an event every month but make them each completely different, take a look at what we did so far; gracebelle.com/events We are also starting to host online workshops with things we’ve learned and in this way we can reach the online community that isn’t local. We love you too, promise <3
