Fashionable Friend Friday

Sometimes incredible talent is literally right under your nose!!  As is the case with this week's Fashionable Friend Friday!!  My friend Augustina's Instagram posts are incredible.  Not only is she an amazing cook but her presentation is out of this world.  I am so impressed with the care she takes to provide her family with Michelin Star-worthy meals.  Whether it be breakfast in bed or dinner al fresco on the Patio, Augustina's is the place to be.  And, if you think the food is amazing you should get to know the company....THE BEST!!!!   Bon Weekend!!
