Let JOY be in every aspect of your life.


Nice to meet ya!

I’m Shelly Jata,

a full time wife and mama of two with an obsession for Jesus. I live in Land O’ Lakes, Florida with my crew and I am entirely satisfied with the heat and palm trees. I’m a sucker for a good chick flick and I could eat through an entire bag of Doritos while watching it. When I’m not chasing around my sticky kids at home, you can find me around other women that are just as much in love with Jesus and stretchy pants as I am. I drive a baby blue mini van with a vinyl on the back window that reads, “Ain’t no shame in my mini van game.” SO, yeah I’m kind of a cool mom. Read more about me.

I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.
— John 15:11


I love this company and am glad to be a Stylist!

My why behind becoming a Stylist: to fund my passions! I want to be able to earn enough income from selling beautiful jewels to support this blog and future projects. It’s a privilege to be a SAHM. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. It is SO nice to be able to earn some money while doing what I love to do. The perk of being a stylist, I get some fancy accessories to upgrade my mom wardrobe!
