Brush Sale Resumes Jan. 1, 2009

Wow! 2009 is here in TWO weeks, can you all believe it?

I do want to start off by saying thanks to every one of you that have placed an order with us these last couple of months, both with the makeup and brush sets and especially to those of you that have helped spread the word; as you all know, that is how small companies like me grow best, through word of mouth. :)

Since I will be out of town almost the entire week of Christmas, my Brush Sale will also be taking a vacation (lol) to slow sales down a bit so I don't run too behind on filling orders when I come back. I will add the Premium Face and Eye brush sets (not many of the Eye sets left though!) back January 1 (Thursday) as well as the couple of Natural Lash sets that were left AND a few other goodies on Clearance. So if you all are just waiting on Christmas bonuses or cash presents before spending any more, this will be a great time for you to partake in this deal if you were unable to this last week.

EDIT: I forgot the best part! When the brush sale resumes, there will be these offers available ONLY from January 1 to January 8 and no coupon code will be needed, it will automatically be sent to you. However, if you DO NOT want an item, do let us know as a courtesy:

Orders over $17.00 - Get a free vegan lip balm a $3.75 value when purchased!
Orders over $55.00 - Get the free lip balm, a free Illuminated Blush AND a free 5 gm jar of eyeshadow of your choice, a $16.73 value when purchased!

***For international orders, PLEASE remember that this will NOT include your shipping costs. So if you buy something for $16.49 and your shipping is $2.00, the shipping charge will not count toward it. You'll have to get a $1 sample to fulfill the "Get with Purchase" deal.

I will be restocking (at their regular prices) the Ingenue Dual Fiber brushes, the Mascara Guard, & Ingenue Eye brushes but it will be early-mid January before they arrive so please check back with us here at our blog if you'd like any updates on their arrival.

Also as noted in the post below and on my Home page at my store, orders received this coming Monday, December 22 through Saturday, December 27 WILL NOT BE PROCESSED & SHIPPED until the Sunday/Monday following--maybe Tuesday depending on how many orders I have when I get back. I'll be setting an Auto-Response in my email as a reminder as well. So if you hear of anyone complaining about not getting their order or any emails from me, make sure you let them know as I'm not sure everyone reads the Home Page or this blog.

I do wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a super Happy New Year! I think 2008 has been tough for a lot of us, especially financially, so I wish everyone the best blessings for 2009. Thank you all though for being a part of this great adventure and challenge of owning my own makeup line! You all are too wonderful!!!

Less than a week before closing!

Just reminding everyone that our store will be temporarily closing this Thursday, Sept. 8 with the last day to shop on Sept. 7. We have added some new Clearance items such as Grab Bags of the discontinued both sample and full-size of Blush & Eyecolors as well as Blush & Eyecolor bundles. Most of these items are going fast so if you would like to get them act soon! However, you may also risk it and wait to save more as we are going to be issuing a discount code either Sept. 4 or 5, so definitely check back here then. As with our other coupon codes, though, because it is a rather large percentage (more so than any other time we've issued them) this will only be for orders $15 or more, so go ahead and order if yours is less than $15 not including shipping. Our powders and foundations and some of the Clearance items are going pretty fast out of stock though so if you don't want to risk running out of inventory, definitely order soon! We want the last couple days to move
 I had no idea it would be so challenging. You would think that I could just “pick up” where we left off with adorned with Grace, but the market has changed pretty significantly in 10 years! I do not remember having to work so hard making the products and on the website many years ago. The latter has been especially difficulty—but…I think I had a bit of writer’s block when trying to get everything jump started. I realized that in continuing adorned with Grace, I felt important to clarify to myself what adorned with Grace would be. Back then, it started as a creative outlet for me, to make cosmetics for hard-to-match skin tones like mine, and to promote true beauty ideas for a positive influence in the world. All still true, of course! But before I could go any further, I felt impressed to elaborate on our values and mission, so this is what I wrote down last week: *To be a light to those in darkness who are held down from their true identity in God. *To unite women and model how we can

No Blog Special, BUT...a Special Article!

Believe It or Not: Words & Their Effect When I was a child, there was a show that my family and I loved to watch called, “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” where it showcased scientific marvels, interesting facts in history, and, sometimes, just fun, outrageous stories to excite and amaze its viewers. Well, I recently read an article that I thought would have fit right in with this show called, “Miraculous Messages from Water: How Water Reflects Our Consciousness.” It’s about an experiment conducted by a Japanese scientist where he tested to see the effect of words/thoughts on water. Sounding crazy already, lol? Well, read on as it gets even more interesting as he’s got pictures to prove it… To give a VERY general overview of his experiment ( *Click here to see the entire article ), he has done experiments on the effect of spoken AND written words on water as well as music. I’m just going to share with you some of the pictures of what I found most interesting of the resulting images
