About Whitney

Hi, y’all! I’m Whitney, the founder of Grits and Glam, which is a lifestyle + fashion blog. I’m also the founder of the popular Lexington blog, Fabulous In Fayette, which is a lifestyle blog that celebrates the fabulous city of Lexington, the great state of Kentucky, and Southern living.

I’m no stranger to blogger and I have actually been blogging for ten years. I began my first blog, Everything Happens For a Reason in 2009. I blogged at EHFAR for six years, before shutting it down in early 2015. I started Fabulous In Fayette in May 2016 and then I decided to launch a completely separate blog, Grits and Glam in October 2018.

I’m an award-winning and published fashion and lifestyle photographer. I’ve had several of my photos published in several online fashion magazines, as well as has won several awards in the Shoot and Share Contest in 2016, 2017., 2018. I pride myself on having high quality, eye-catching images to go along with my posts on my blog, so they can pair perfectly with my story-telling.

I’m a lover of Diet Coke, dogs, goat videos, bird videos, speaking in memes, and not taking life too seriously.

About Grits and Glam

Grits and Glam is a Southern lifestyle blog combining two things I love – food, fashion, and lifestyle. I wanted to stay true to my Southern roots, hence, grits. It’s a grown up version of my previous blog, Everything Happens For a Reason. Grits and Glam is kind of like my alter ego in comparison to my other blog, Fabulous In Fayette. Grits and Glam has the personal aspect to it – my life, marriage, my thoughts, fashion and style, and inspiration.
