livin life one donut at a time


Let’s Get It!

As we typically say every year around this time: “Wow! It’s already July! Where did the year go?!”

When I say this, it’s usually because I had lofty goals at the beginning of the year that I wanted to finally accomplish. Then I catch a glimpse of a calendar or something and I’m like “oh shit! I haven’t even begun to tackle those goals!” sad face.

But whatever! I can’t change the past or recoup lost time. What I can do it get busy livin’ and don’t stop…get it, get it!

One of those goals was to write more 🙂

I had to get out of the idea that my blog color/layout/colors/theme/blah blah blah had to be absolutely on-point perfect before I could begin writing.

It’s okay if it’s not perfect and it will likely evolve over time and guess what? That’s the beauty of growing and life in general.

I’ve also had this dream that I’ve been hella sleeping on – like 7ish years of sleeping on it. It’s a project that I think about almost every day yet haven’t executed.

This one is huge for me, but I’ve just gotta do it. I’ve gotta start. So, I will. And because I want to continue my goal of writing more, that project will likely be the subject of my writing; we’ll call it The Project Blue for now, tPB for short. I’m a little excited. And clueless how to execute it. 🤦🏾‍♀️ Nonetheless…it’s gotta happen!

There are a few other goals that I’ll share along the way as well.

Bye 👋🏾

Randy’s Donuts x Tom’s


One day I was perusing Insta and I saw these lovely, sprinkled out Tom’s – I just had to have them!

I’ve never owned a pair of Tom’s before. Any time I would find a cute pair that I liked; they were either too big or too small! Ugh.

However, what I learned from those experiences is that if I were to ever buy a pair of Tom’s that weren’t sold inside of a Ross, I’d need a size 11.

Anyway…y’all know my love for donuts, so there was NO WAY I wasn’t gonna not get these (leave my double negative alone 🙃)!

Look at these glorious kicks:

Too bad they don’t smell like sprinkled donuts. Though, that’s probably a good thing in my case!
