National Doughnut Day

Happy National Doughnut Day

This has absolutely nothing to do with fashion or jewelry, other than if you eat too many doughnuts you’ll probably have trouble fitting into your skinny jeans. Today is National Doughnut Day and there are places that are giving away free doughnuts. Krispy Kreme and Dunkin Donuts are participating but you will have to check with your local shop to see if you can get a fix from them. Apparently not every donut shop in town is giving away doughnuts or maybe some are giving away a limited quantity.


This is National Doughnut Day but I don’t have a Krispy Kreme or a Dunkin Donut anywhere near me. I guess I won’t be able to get a free doughnut. This is probably okay since I don’t leave me house in the morning. Now this would be totally different if they had National Shoe Day and stores were giving away shoes. I would probably not only get up early I might even camp out the night before, kind of like waiting in line to purchase Rolling Stones tickets.


National Shoe Day would be awesome!
Sometimes my obsession with shoes borders on the unhealthy. What is really bad is when my husband contributes to the obsession. Last night he introduced me to a new iPad app called Flipboard. It’s a free app that allows you to download articles on specific topics. Science and technology, politics and of course fashion and style, he found a section on shoes and sent me the link. This was probably a mistake on his part since not only does this show picture after picture of great shoes, it has links to where you can buy.


I really haven’t had much time to look over this new app but I will try and do a little more searching. So far I’ve found a few sites that feature various fashion bloggers. They have wonderful pictures and while most of the articles seem short on words, they do have brief descriptions about brands and pricing. So far it seems to be more of a marketing tool for retailers and fashion magazines. This app appears to be as deadly to my wallet as National Doughnut Day is to dieters, although we’ll have to wait and see.
A potentially dangerous app
