Feeling Golden with Minerva Gold Collagen

I happened upon Minerva’s Gold Collagen when visiting my local beauty supply store aka my hangout as I’m there so often purchasing products I don’t need more often than not. Such was not the case with Gold Collagen. I drank a bottle a day for about two weeks and the results were incredible. My nails were much stronger, my skin more radiant and my hair was so shiny! And it tastes like a bellini! This innovative product was designed for women wishing to promote beautiful skin and fight the visible signs of aging. Containing a unique blend of collagen and […]

I had the pleasure of attending the LA Fashion Week opening night event thanks to the lovely Laura Sharpe, Founder and CEO of Artists for Trauma (AFT).

Bad Vida! I will say that I really enjoyed the Bai drinks especially the Bolivian black cherry flavor and the […]
