THE POWER OF REAL

FOUNDED BY ANOUK SMULDERS

Grace&Us was born with a simple idea – to bring together the women we know, love and are inspired by, to celebrate and honour them – with the belief that women can do better together, and the power of kindness, generosity and openness can overtake all.

We are curious, daring, powerful, crazy, supportive BADASS babes. We’ve got stories to tell, wisdom to share, encouragement, honesty and sincerity to give.

We’re starting a movement, and being real is the name of the game.

Grace&Us stories
- The power of real

Our mission is to share authentic stories, from and for the amazing women we meet, to celebrate, come together, encourage, support, show kindness, and build a movement based on these values. Because together we can kick some real ass.

Mayke Langenhorst would never be able to live a normal life. Having children? Impossible. That was the diagnosis Mayke got at 20 years old. At least, according to her doctor. But she chose to write her own story. With incredibly hard work, she was able to do what others told her couldn’t be done…

Lilian Voorveld (74) figured out how to break free from the strict catholic environment she grew up in. She did so by choosing her own path in life. But most importantly, by never losing hope. Because once hope is lost, all is lost…

Join The Movement

We believe that women can do better together. We believe in the power of kindness, generosity and openness.

Bring Your Tribe

We have known and met women from every walk of life who inspire us, touch us and motivate us. We want to celebrate and perpetuate that.

The Power of Real

We’re sharing real stories from women, for women – to help lift us up, feel supported and learn. To share our strength, curiosity and enthusiasm, and to honour those who surround us.

Join Us

A place to share, be inspired and inspiring, be daring, powerful, find support, show support, and get a little crazy.

- Because you can't put a
filter on real life

I created Grace&Us as a space to bring women together. To start conversations, share experiences, to foster a movement based on kindness, humanity, courage, strength, openness and spirit. Here we are. So let’s get Grace-ing It.
