There were so many wonderful vendors at the beautiful Fig & Olive Restaurant on Melrose place. We were beyond delighted that Heather Marinnara was front and center with her Beauty Kitchen Line.

It’s a six-time, award winner from Bulgaria. We were very lucky to get an exclusive taste since it isn’t available in California yet! Definitely put everyone in a party mood 😉
My final stops were to improve me from the inside out. Green Horizen CBD is one, if not, the only CBD company with nearly 100% hemp oil as it’s ingredients and nothing else. Do the research and you’ll see for yourself. There are so many benefits n the horizon from the use of hemp. I was completely in awe of her poise, beauty, and knowledge of Dr. Orie Achononwa, Founder of Nourish Modern Wellness. It is a leading holistic lifestyle whose ingredients are all natural and essential. Her company is based out of Texas but renowned worldwide.

This particular product gets my personal stamp of approval and coveted “GO GET IT NOW” seal!
