I am the Foodie Fashionista and this blog is a forum to express my idea of living life in the best way I know how. Whether it be by eating great food, drinking delicious wine, wearing amazing clothes, spending time with inspiring people, or admiring beautiful places, I want to explore it all!
Here’s to the weekend, the holiday, VACATION FOR A WHOLE WEEK, and things never being as bad as they seem when you take a step back. I hope this girl realizes that too ; ) Special thanks to everyone in my life that makes me feel loved, appreciated and valued every single day.
It’s the freaking weekend! Friday’s are just so sweet. I thought I’d whip up a couple of these babies I found on my favorite recipe site, MyRecipes, tonight to enjoy it a little more.. Enjoy your weekend!
