‘Pretty Little Liars’ – my sister and I read the books, so we stuck to it for the first season, but it started to kind of drift off; so did we.

A lip brush is really helpful when applying a red lip because it makes the lines smoother. You can see a bumpy line from really far away.

A lot of the off-ice is actually spent sort of as a recovery process. Because the closer we get to a competition, the more and more you do on-ice. So if you’re already on the ice three to four hours, you get enough cardio doing your run-throughs. But I sometimes do the elliptical or bike.

Gracie Gold

Always wear a smile because you never know who is watching.

Gracie Gold

Classic music will always come across better on the ice because skating has such a rich history, rooted in tradition.

Gracie Gold

Everyone has their dreams. I don’t write my dreams down; they just live inside of me.

Gracie Gold

Everyone saying, ‘She’ll bring back women’s skating. This will be the one to watch at the Olympics.’ And they say things that are so far away, but really, you have to bring it back in and look at the next competition, the next day, what you want to accomplish because if you get too far ahead of yourself, you can trip yourself up.

Grace Kelly is my main inspiration, for her timeless beauty. I like Jennifer Lawrence for her fun, down-to-earth style, and Taylor Swift is always elegant.

Gracie Gold

I always put a layer of lip balm first, and then I layer the lipstick on by using a lip brush to help get it into the whole lip and make a really even line.

Gracie Gold

I always start my breakfast out with oatmeal, because it’s full of vitamin D, it’s a great carb, and you can get, like, some fun flavors in there.

Gracie Gold

I always try to have a fun nail. It’s something whimsical that you can pull off anytime.

Gracie Gold

I always wear a pair of colored jeans and fun boots. I have a really cute pair of stars-and-stripes Converse, and I love wearing all my bright Nike shoes.

Gracie Gold

I always wear my evil eye necklace to ward off bad karma. I always wear one to protect me.

Gracie Gold

I can’t live without mascara and lipstick – every day.

Gracie Gold

I definitely have two Olympics in me; I don’t know about three Olympics.

Gracie Gold

I love pop music… some hip hop… not super big into rap, but I love Rihanna. I love Alicia Keys. Rihanna was my first concert I went to. I love her.

Gracie Gold

I pretty much knew that I was going to come in fourth, but then I said, ‘I’m fourth at the Olympic Games. What are you talking about? Why is that disappointing?’

Gracie Gold

I think if I just do what I do every day, on the extraordinary Olympic stage, I could be a podium contender.

Gracie Gold

I think that’s something to look forward to: The new Gracie Gold at the Olympics. In 2014, you’ll see a lot of the warm Gracie, and not just the athletic Gracie.

Gracie Gold

I’m an elite, recreational juggler.

Gracie Gold

I’m really all about clean eating, lots of fruits and vegetables. It’s great, because in California, there are so many farmers’ markets, so I always have plenty of fresh produce.

Gracie Gold

I’ve been competitive since day one. Even in little things as a child, like having a twin and a direct competitor for who makes better cookies.

Gracie Gold

If I were packing for a deserted island, I would bring sunscreen, a water purifier, something to start a fire with, my sister, and something for protection.

Gracie Gold

In skating there’s always another jump or another spin variation or another thing to learn, and that’s what I liked about it.

Gracie Gold

It’s just skating, and you’re going to have a couple of mistakes. Even in practice, you’re not hitting 100%.

Gracie Gold

It’s kind of low brow, but the show ‘Bob’s Burgers’ is hilarious, and being from the Midwest, I can kind of relate to a lot of the jokes. ‘Orange is The New Black’ is a Netflix Exclusive, I think – that’s really funny.

Gracie Gold

My favorite shampoos and conditioners are from Pantene’s Damage Repair line, but I also love the Color Preserve Shine collection. I get highlights here and there to brighten my look, so the Color Preserve shampoo and conditioner is great for protection.

Gracie Gold

My go-to is a red lip. It’s a timeless fashion statement, and I’ve loved doing it ever since I was little. My favorite classic red is CoverGirl Lip Perfection in #305 Hot.

Gracie Gold

My mom was born in San Diego, around Vista. So we’ve always been California people.

Gracie Gold

Now that I have an Olympic medal in my room, it makes me hungry for another and a different color one.

Gracie Gold

Red certainly is the family color. From my mother and my grandmother, I’ve learned a lot of little tricks – the significance of color and lipstick being one of them. I started skating when I was eight years old, and my mom did my makeup for me back then.

Gracie Gold

Skating can make you feel athletic, graceful, beautiful.

Gracie Gold

Someone named Gold has never won gold, I’m told.

Gracie Gold

The first thing I do when I get up in the morning is wash my face with Olay Regenerist Thermal Mini-Peel Face Wash. My skin is super-dry, and this one is great for basically any skin type. As you cleanse your face, the face wash gets warmer, so it’s soothing and also has some exfoliation to it.

Gracie Gold

There are tons of great names who have gotten fourth at their first Olympics, and they just kept with it for the next quad. I’m among good company.

Gracie Gold

There is always the next big thing, the next big skater.

Gracie Gold

When it comes down to competition, it’s not always about the best skater, it’s about who skates the best in that competition.

Gracie Gold

While I circled around and around in my brown rental skates, I studied a group of skaters spinning in the center. I was fascinated! When my mom picked me up, I began a campaign for skating lessons.
