Grace Girl Picks: Rachel R.

Welcome back!  We're finishing up our eight days of Grace Girl/Guy Picks with co-owner Rachel R.'s favorite items in the store.  Not only does she love these items, but she's also partly responsible for having them in the store in the first place.  Clearly this is one Grace Girl with great taste - read on to find out what she suggests!

Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan

Chalk Paint™: paint, $38.95.  Dark/clear wax, $28.95 each.  Small brush
(pictured), $29.95.  Medium brush, $39.95.  Large brush, $58.95.
"It's great for DIY." - Rachel R.
A lot of people (including us!) have been very excited about Grace carrying Chalk Paint™, and with good reason.  Rachel says it best: "Every Christmas when I am going all crazy trying to get my house holiday-ready, I feel the need to paint something totally last minute.  Now with Annie Sloan, it's no problem.  My husband is also a huge fan since he painted the bathroom last Christmas Eve... no priming, no sanding, just paint away!"  And this paint isn't just for big projects - since you can use it on almost any surface, it would be perfect for personalizing a gift.  Try fixing up a great junk shop find, like a tray or picture frame, with a quick coat of paint and some wax.  It's a win-win gift; the recipient gets a beautiful, customized piece, and you get to keep the rest of the paint for yourself!

Olivina body care

Olivina: 10 oz. olive hand/body lotion, $24.  Olive bath soap, $10.  Hand
crème (left to right: pomegranate, olive, orange & clove, fig): $10.    
"Super moisturizing, not greasy and smells divine." - Rachel R.
Winter, a.k.a. hand lotion season, is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than by stocking up on some fabulous Olivina products?  The cute little hand crèmes smell amazing and are the perfect size to toss in a purse or a stocking for Christmas.  You could also impress holiday house guests by putting the hand/body lotion, body wash, and bath soap in a little basket for them in the bathroom.  Just a word to the wise: you're going to want to keep some for yourself, too! 

Thanks for checking in with us each day to see all our favorite things!  This series of blog posts may be over, but our Grace Girl/Guy Picks signs in the store will stay put to make your shopping a breeze.  We've had a blast sharing our favorite Grace items with you and we hope you feel energized and inspired about your holiday shopping.  And remember to mark your calendars - December 13th is the first day of our 12 Days of Christmas promotion!  You can sign up for our emails if you haven't already either on the right side of this page or at our Facebook page.  We can't wait to see you soon for some great holiday deals!
