FLORIDA foodie road trip - apalachicola

After we hit Tallahassee for our last episode of our mini web series for VISIT FLORIDA, Florida Foodie Road Trip, we headed to the Forgotten Coast to check out the food scene of Apalachicola.

I was never a girly girl and I am still totally learning how to do my make up. However, there has been this one thing in my regiment that is a total game changer. Continue reading
