I went through quite the purple stage my freshman year of college. Everything from my bedding to my slippers fell victim to my color infatuation. Since then, I avoid it entirely, unless disguised as a pretty pastel shade. This dress though, with its perforations and peplum, is closer to a pale pink, which I’ve never been able to resist.

I’m addicted to Pinterest. As someone who loves to collect visual inspiration, but struggles with organization, it fits my needs perfectly. The one thing that doesn’t always resonate with me is the influx of written inspiration. The words never seem applicable to my life, so with that in mind, I decided to create a manifesto. It’s simple and to the point, but filled with the things I hold to be most important. I like that it speaks to where I am currently, but that it’s open to change and interpretation the older I get. But for now, it’s surprisingly rewarding to see a list that reminds me of everything that matters most.
I’d love to know what you would include in your manifesto?

Recently I’ve really come around to donuts. For someone as sugar crazed as myself, it was kind of my claim to fame that I could actually abstain from a box of fresh donuts. My husband, however is the opposite – if there’s a donut around, he’s eating it. Whether or not it’s a flavor he likes, if it’s been lying out for too long, or if he’s already uncomfortably full, it doesn’t matter to him. Somehow I’ve adopted some of his enthusiasm, so when he suggested we get donuts the other morning, I decided to make them at home, with a slight adjustment. We baked them (much like Fonuts, which I covered here) and made them miniature to minimize their damage (recipe here). They lack the grease and heaviness of regular doughnuts, but for a slightly healthier weekend morning alternative, they’re an ideal complement to coffee.
