Briana Jones who is part of the cast on HBO Max’s unscripted reality series, “Sweet Life: Los Angeles,” produced by Issa Rae and entrepreneur of Buttrd by Bri is on the radar for greatness.
The show follows a group of seven ambitious friends as they pursue their dreams in South L.A. while navigating the highs and lows that come with chasing success. The show is a fresh of breath air as many of us are chasing our dreams and passion.
Briana’s mission wasn’t to come to L.A. from Kalamazoo, Michigan in search of fame, but rather to grow as an individual and to be surrounded by diverse viewpoints. As happenstance would have it, her friendship with castmate Jordan Bentley, CEO and Founder of a popular streetwear line, lead to an opportunity for her growth in a different industry that she originally planned for.
Bri is also Founder of Buttrd by Bri, her organic body butter line that she founded out of an essential need to find organic products that worked well for sensitive skin. Originally starting as a hobby and way to implement a little extra self-love into her days has now become an essential key to her routine and lifestyle. She currently handmakes the butter herself and packages and ships the items with love to her avid butter fans. Buttrd by Bri is dedicated to using only natural and organic ingredients in each product, and each butter is free of harmful additives and is always cruelty free. If you haven’t tried this butter line, you definitely should! https://www.buttrdbybri.com/shop
