metropolitan girl by grace ashi

Welcome to Metropolitan girl; a lifestyle blog for for young women.  My name is Grace Ashi, Blogger and Beauty Entrepreneur; Ashi cosmetics. I started this blog because I wanted to create a space where young women could come to feel empowered and motivated. I believe that fashion, travel, and personal growth are all essential parts of becoming the best version of yourself, and so I strive to curate content that reflects that. On my blog, you’ll find stylish outfit inspiration, tips for exploring new places, and advice for growing both personally and professionally. I created Metropolitan Girl because I believe that every woman deserves to feel confident and fabulous, and I’m so excited to share my journey with you. Welcome!


In 2019, beyond my wildest dreams, I became Miss Arlington USA 2019 and a state finalist at Miss Virginia USA 2019. This marked a moment of tremendous personal growth as I had been crippled with anxiety due to insecurities about my stuttering which was prominent in my childhood.  My experience inspired me  to inspire others to be the best version of themselves inside and out.
