    I’m an Accidental Influencer.

    Kelsey Egan founded Hot Mess with Grace with 1 mission in mind: To help other Millennial Moms achieve a “Pinterest Perfect” aesthetic on a budget. Whether fashion, beauty, or home – she recognized that those with toddlers yearned for an “Instagrammable” life but were bogged down in the hot mess of the daily grind.

    Instead of fighting it- she embraced it,
    and Hot Mess with Grace was born.

    Kelsey didn’t set out to be an influencer- She was just looking for free makeup. As a new stay at home Mom, she lacked the budget to buy all the things she was used to having on two full time incomes. As a result: She found herself willing to post on Instagram for free, in exchange for products.

    8+ years later, Kelsey and Hot Mess with Grace are a well know, reliable source for honest product reviews and trending ideas.



    I took my big beautiful brain and bottled it up just for you!
