Summer Days // Doughnut Adventures


Let's be real- doughnuts are basically little beautiful circles of happiness. The different kinds of doughnuts are basically limitless, and it's pretty hard to find a bad doughnut. I see no cons in this situation.

(If you're currently in the midst of the no-sugar challenge, I'M SORRY. I'm weak. I can't.)

There's this really cool place near to where I live where you can build your own doughnuts, and we've been wanting to go for forever. Now that we've finally had our schedules calm down a bit, we decided to head on over! We were hoping to do some shopping nearby as well, but there weren't as many shops nearby as we had hoped. We visited my uncle and my papa at work though, so that was fun!


Before I start talking about the doughnuts, though, can we have a moment of appreciation for this purse? IT'S AN OWL. I'm obsessed, guys. Like, how cute is that?


Also, for all of you who lean toward the healthier side of things, a photo of some bright colorful veggies that I snapped during out Aldi run!

Now, to the doughnuts.



Basically how it worked was you were given a little form to fill out, to build your doughnuts. The base of all the doughnuts is a basic cake doughnut, and you then get to choose an icing and a topping. There were literally so many options that you could try, it was incredible.

Since it was our first time, we decided to get a dozen so that we could try lots of different kinds. I have to say that my personal favorite would have to be chocolate with chocolate chips, although chocolate with Reese's pieces is definitely a close second!


Obviously I didn't mind the sprinkle too much either.


In conclusion? Doughnuts make the world go round.

p.s. Shoutout to my sister for being an epic photographer and capturing my awkwardness for the world to see. You rock.

So, let's have a lovely doughnut discussion! What's YOUR favorite kind of doughnut?? Have YOU ever built your own doughnut? Do YOU agree that doughnuts make the world go round?? Let's chat!!

  1. YAY DOUGHNUT HAPPINESS

    YOUR OWL PURSE IS LOVELY LOVELY LOVELY

    I adore doughnuts so much. My brother actually makes the most amazing doughnuts ever, so I eat more doughnuts than I probably should XD

    We have a place almost exactly like yours over here called The Fractured Prune, which come to think of it is a really weird name. Huh. But they have so many crazy combinations there, most recent of which was a maple doughnut with bacon topping that was...interesting!

    Your doughnut pics are gorgeous and yes doughnuts totally make the world go round, OBVIOUSLY

    1. Doughnut happiness is the best happiness.

      THANK YOU IT IS MY BABY <3

      Oh my goodness, I wish I had a brother who would make me doughnuts. That sounds fabulous. XD

      Huh, The Fractured Prune! That is an interesting name XD They had a maple/bacon doughnut at the doughnut shop that I went to, too! I didn't try that one. XD

      Haha, thank you! And yes, they do!!

  2. Um, owl purse ftw!!

    Doughnuts are literal perfection. Build-your-own-doughnut place?? Sounds magical!! x) I saw my brother eating a doughnut recently with Fruit Loops for a topping! That was a new one.

    But i think the big question is... is it doughnut or donut....

    1. Owl purses are amazing XD

      Huh, Fruit Loops? That does sound interesting. They had a Fruity Pebbles option at the shop I went to, wasn't too sure about that.

      IT'S SUCH A BIG QUESTION. Honestly I use both. XD It usually depends on how lazy I feel at the moment haha.

    They used to make this birthday cake donut that was AMAZING. Then they took it off the menu and I haven't been back since as a little act of rebellion....

  7. DONUTS ARE LIFE. I'm actually pretty boring when it comes to donuts. Old-fashioned are my go-to, but I still love more unique flavors like apple pie or banana cream. Oh, and apple fritters are the best.

    And can I just say you are ridiculously pretty.

  8. OMG THIS POST MAKES ME SO HUNRY I MIGHT JUST EAT MY LAPTOP. But then, that would be awkward. So I'll try to resist. But yuuuuum. And I think it's so awesome that you could build them yourself. :D I haven't had a traditional donut in like A GAZILLION YEARS. But my family have a little mini-donut maker (it looks like a waffle maker but it does donut shapes) and we put waffle mixture in. So that's nothing like these. XD But honestly the closest thing i've had to a donut in, like, a decade probably. haha. NOW I HAVE A CRAVING. :D

    1. I actually do all of my productions with the same group, and most of us have known each other for years and years, so that's never really been an issue for me. We're like our own little family. People aren't always going to get along though, that's just life. Just try to be nice to everyone and hope it works out!

    1. XD ^literally my reaction to almost any food-related photo. It isn't wise to go on Pinterest or Instagram when you're hungry.

      Yessssss you totally should!!! That's honestly the best way to describe it. It's a lot like those frozen yogurt places. And aren't places like that always so adorable? Like, I love their decor.

      GAH KATE YOU ARE SO SWEET I'M CRYING :') <3 Aren't owls the best??
