South Beach Wine and Food Festival 2016

This year I was very graciously invited to attend my first ever #SOBEWFF , specifically the Goya Grand Tasting Village! The event was situated right on the sand in the heart of South Beach on 13th Street, & the weather was perfect!

Have a look at some of the fun pics I captured with my friend and creative writer Yvette M. Calleiro,  author of fantasy fiction series The Chronicles of the Diasodz.

Needless to say, I had the most fun sampling my custom Coke floats & illy coffees! :))

Have a look at some of my memories with a few of the Miss Universe 2014 contestants …
