Fifi O'Neill's book signing at A Beautiful Mess & A visit…


Fifi is everywhere these days!

Currently, Fifi is busy

traveling, producing photo shoots for her next book and many

different publications. Her recent stop here in Agoura Hills, was for a

book signing of her beautiful new book

Romantic Prairie Style, and a visit with me.  There is nothing this woman can’t do!

The book signing turned out wonderful. We all had so much fun

visiting with her. Thank you Fifi for such a great time!
