Girls Raised In The South. As a mother-daughter duo, we decided to start a site set apart from the typical fashion, style, and beauty bloggers that rule today. The internet and the world deserve an honest illustration of real life, including all its highs and lows. There are too many blogs that seem to be run by those with endless time, money, and happiness. With a passion for style, health, humor, and all things southern, The Grits are here to serve up reality.
