Almost exactly a month ago, I shared a blog post featuring the outfit-of-the-day photos I recently started taking in my stereotypical over-the-door college mirror.

I am now convinced that photoshoots are not just an activity but a way of life. Am I being dramatic? Yes. But are photoshoots good for the soul? Absolutely, and here are seven reasons to explain why.

behind the scenes of a blogger's life

Piper here, your one-and-only source into the scandalous lives of the bloggers’ elite. And who am I? I am Grace’s roommate doing a blog takeover on a new perspective on the creation of Graceful Rags. When I found out that my future roommate (and future bestie) was a blogger, I had no idea what I was signing up for. So, welcome to a behind-the-scenes look of the blogging life from the perspective of a non-blogger. Here are 6 things that you might not know: Continue reading “Blogging Life: Behind the Scenes”
