We’ve always admired Forever 21 for their super fast to market, on trend, dirt cheap clothing and accessories. This line of craveable Food Wrist Watches calls for a time out. We, of course, would opt for the center image so that it’s always pizza time o’clock in our dough filled, tomato sauce world. Although, donut time is also not a bad alarm to wake too. Enough of the time jokes. Go ahead and scarf these up online but it’s much more fun to go into a store and try them all on, trust us.
I’ve seen my share of Italian cakes and Pompeiian lemons. Maybe that’s why these papers jumped out at me. Call it a reprieve or an intrigue. The beauty of Rossi 1931 Papers are unmatchable. The metallic gold used to rim some of the cakes is an incredible detail. the texture of the lemons and the leaves pushes you to reach in and attempt to grab one. Once these beautiful 20 X 25 sheets are in your possession it’s up to you what you do with them. Framing them is certainly an option for these wall worthy beauties. I prefer to double treat with things like this. Now I just have to find the perfect, deserving gift to be wrapped with such works of art.
Do you have an amazing vegetarian mother-in-law like me? Perfect. This card is one of our favs. Spotted in Dépanneur Brooklyn last year we held onto this gem until the high holiday of mother’s rolled back around. Drop this I Eat My Vegetables Card atop a basket of hand picked, farmers market fruits and veggies and you’ve got yourself a Mother’s Day mic drop.
This November is one of the most important elections in our history. Collectively we have the power to shape our future, as we always did it just seems extra important this go round. The pride in this power is palpable and you might just need something a little more lighter-hearted than the recent headlines to show your patriotism. This donut flag tee should do the trick while reminding you of the sweet reward you can indulge in after you hit the polls. No matter your affiliation, or lack there of, be prepared for long lines and hunger pangs. Which reminds us to plug this equally important effort for those experiencing food insecurity. It helps those in that situation to vote and receive food. A true win-win. Back on topic, this donut vote garb will keep people on line smiling and you out of the crosshairs of a more unsavory voter. Now the only thing you need to decide is if your a yeast or cake donut lover. There it is, yet another divide. Why is there always 2 dominant choices? Can’t there be room for a strong third. In the case of donuts we supposed that would be cronuts.
