My love for food and fashion has no bounds. Fashion and I began our long love affair when I read about Marie-Antoinette and her infamous taste. I do love couture but on my budget you can rely on me to have the inside scoop on how to look fabulous for cheap! However, although fashion and I have been going steady for a while now food is like my family. I am not a fussy foodie however I will be upset if a chef has not put in their best effort. My muse right now is chickpeas last week it was Acai bowls so expect something different from me each week. From fashion show rundowns to the best places for brunch I got you.
