Donuts are loved by everyone because they are obviously delicious but also an iconic representation of North American culture.
I remember watching Homer Simpson scarf down a donut like there was no tomorrow, and eating my first Krispie Cream on a summer road trip.
When I was a kid my brothers and I would hoard the free donuts in a motel lobby acting like we had never seen a donut before. I used to love going to the grocery store with my mom knowing that I could probably persuade her into buying a set of bear claws for my brothers and I.
As an adult, I limit my donut intake but still adore the look of a pink glazed donut with sprinkles on top to the point where I have purchased several donut themed items of clothing and accessories. As a way to celebrate National Donut Day, I wanted to collaborate with Empire Donuts by doing a vintage inspired photo shoot showing off their delicious donuts. For more details on the event at Empire Donuts check my full article with Monday Magazine.
This weekend is going to be exciting because I am going on a date with my hair stylist to The Oak Bay Tea Party and then we are going to see Mad Max. For those of you who aren’t from Victoria, The Oak Bay Tea party is an annual carnival that takes place on the beach with rides and games. We are going to go so I can do a carnival inspired photo shoot with cotton candy and vintage rides. I am hoping to go on the Gravitron since I haven’t been on one in years.
