It all started when...

"I became a stay-at-home Mom, I realized that I needed to stretch our family's budget.


There's no better way to do that than repurposing family heirlooms, diy-ing curbside finds, visiting thrift stores regularly, and shopping on a budget. I'm not the only one with a gift for being thrifty in my family. My husband and two children are budget conscious as well...sometimes much better than I am. Every once in a while, they join in for some diy or thrifting fun. I love to share my Beautiful Gems with friends." ~Synolve

I love FASHION & Beauty! Every since my grandmother bought my first Easter Shoes & Easter Dress, I have been a mini fashionista! I love getting all DOLLED UP for any occasion from a backyard BBQ to an elegant formal gathering to a night out on the  with the girls or date night with hubby! There's always a reason to dress UP! Just hanging out at home with hubby is a major event! Why not look FABULOUS, be comfortable, and feel great while you're Netflixing & CHillin?!! Some of my FAV stores are Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, Haute Look, Macy's, Dillard's, Chico's, Lord & Taylor, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, The GAP, White House Black Market, Marshall's, T.J. Maxx, and Burlington - just to name a few...Stick around for my blog posts and you'll hear me mention these "GO TO" shopping destinations over and over again! (If you don't already, You'll come to love them too!!)

My Life Away from the cameras...

I am also a seminary student, wife, and mother of two really awesome amazing babies. (They will always be my babies no matter how old they are!) I loves to teach, speak at conferences, workshops, & seminars, write faith devotions and studies, as well as preach. I find it enlightening and very therapeutic to share snippets of my journey including my natural hair journey to hanging out with my hubby (Milton AKA BAE) and my family as well as my daily joys and struggles. It's my absolute joy and pleasure to share a little inspiration for your journey. I truly get a kick out of sharing my amazing Beautiful Gems with you whether new, thrifted, gifted, found, re-used, upcycled, or diy-ed. Oh...I love to walk, garden, and smile...a lot....
