Naturals Night Out @ Serendipity Bistro!

The Gems did it again! Another fabulous and fun Meet-up at a great new local Bistro.

Saturday June 29th the Gems gathered for Naturals Night Out at Serendipity Bistro. Serendipity is conveniently located downtown at 25 St. Clair, between the Neon Theater and the Main Library. 
Serendipity is owned by Cammie Harris (so sweet) and her husband!

Serendipity has both indoor and outdoor seating, it has a peaceful inviting atmosphere! Excellent service was provided and the food was exquisite (the prices were too, lol) and the custom Sangria provided by the owner was an added bonus!
Needless to say, the Gems had a great time. We laughed and talked so much we forgot to take group pictures. However myself and owner were able to snag a few at the end!

Thanks again Cammie! :)

Gem City Naturals Giveaway: Eva Jenae Naturals

Hey Gems,

We are having a Gem City Naturals Giveaway by one of our very own Gems!

Lydia Gibson, owner of Eva Jenae Naturals

Eva Jenae Naturals originated from the need to soothe my baby's daughter’s irritated skin and scalp.  While the medication she was prescribed treated the area, it did not improve the overall condition of her skin.   I also found that the store bought products I purchased for sensitive skin still contained chemicals and other harsh ingredients that irritated her skin and scalp even more.   After buying several products containing shea butter, I decided to try my hand at making my own products. Many hours were spent researching and experimenting with various butters, oils and herbs.   The finished products were shared with my family, friends and coworkers who loved them and encouraged me to start my own business.   It brings me great pride and joy to be able to share my passion with you all!
Each product is hand made in small batches in a sterile environment to ensure freshness.  With Eva Jenae Naturals, all natural really does mean ALL NATURAL! Our products are simple, yet effective. We do not use synthetic fragrances, parabens,  petroleum or fillers and we do not test our products on animals.   

Their mission is to create high quality, all natural bath and body products that are available and affordable to all walks of life.

Giveaway Items:

Deluxe moisturizing gift set (seen in picture above)


Pamper your skin from head to toe with our Deluxe Gift Set!  This set contains our Facial Oil and sample sizes of our Bath Oil, Whipped Body Butter and Cocoa Shea Lotion Bar in an attractive organza satchel.

Treat yourself or someone else!


*Available in Bare (no essentials oils added), Fresh Citrus, or Blooming Bouquet scents.  The scent selections apply to the whipped body butter and bath oil only.  The lotion bar has a natural cocoa butter scent-no essential oils are added to scent.  Our facial oil is a blend of various essential oils.*


*Package contains 2 oz whipped body butter, 2 oz bath oil, 2 oz facial oil & ½ oz  lotion bar.*
