About

Welcome to CANDY GRANT

Hello and welcome! My name is Dominika Baumgartner and I am the founder and creator of Candy Grant. I was born on June 14, 1995, which means I am 25 and a Gemini. I was born in Bratislava, Slovakia where I also live now.
At the moment I work as a beauty counsultant in a chain of beauty stores and a social media manager for a natural beauty company on the side. Despite I like my job (both of them, acctually), my dream’s to become a entrepreneur and be my own boss.

The history of Candy Grant goes back to 2015 when I changed my former blog name and adress Donny writes… (long story short – I am a Gemini).
Everything started as a fun project during my second year of high school when I felt I needed some space where I could express myself. As far as I have loved writing ever since I remember, blogging was a nice thing to try. As time went by I just fell in love with the creative process behind every blog post, picture and video!
I kept going and here I am today – still loving it all, ready to inspire you and share pieces of my life as well as my opinions together with all the things that make me happy and keep me inspired and motivated.
On my web and connected channels you will find my thoughts on beauty, lifestyle, home (especially minimalism!) and career which means we will talk everything from makeup through health, books, plants, cooking, declutteing and organization to girlboss tips, inspiration and motivation…
I know it may seem a little bit chaotic and uncertain now (I told you, a Gemini…) but I am sure we will have fun together and I hope you will enjoy my content.
I will be more than happy if we will create a nice and supportive community together where we will share our thoughts and opinions, lift each other up and keep in touch no matter where we are from.

What you might find interesting about me is that I live with my husband Gabriel and our four years old French Bulldog Rufus. We rent a tiny studio in Old Town of Bratislava which is super expensive but it’s our temporary home that I always try to improve, redecorate, reorganize and make more cosy.
I studied Slovak and English language and literature at the University (still making mistakes tho) which I unfortunatelly didn’t finish due to some personal issues.
Even though I live in Bratislava, I’ve spent thirteen years in a small town called Skalica (about 100km north from Bratislava) where my parents, my younger sister, my grandma and our dog Lucky live. As I love to spend some of my weekends and holidays there, you will visit them with me occasionally as well.

I think that’s it for now. You will learn other things about me as we go. If you want to know anything else, feel free to leave a comment on one of my blogposts, email me at info@candygrant.com or send me a message on my social media accounts. For PR inquiries check my contact page.
