Linklove: Donut Loving Edition

Did you get your free Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kremes today? We purposely didn’t want to tell you about where to get all the diet-crushing freebies today, National Donut Day, which occurs the first Friday in June each year, succeeding the Donut Day event created by the Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.

And here, our cream-filled, frosted and rainbow sprinkled link love:

First, get all your donut facts and stats from the Huffington Post.

If you’re preggers, you are excused from all diet rules! Eat all the donuts you can, then save money and have some fun by renting your wardrobe from Mine For Nine, the “Rent the Runway” for maternity wear, featured on Daily Candy.

After you’re finished with your free donuts in celebration of National Donut Day, pick up the slack tomorrow with Truly.Raw.Gourmet. Sorbet featured on Your Daily Thread.

And in case you’re still craving sweetness, The Luxury Spot has a recipe for Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Cupcakes. Repeat it once more: Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Cupcakes. Is that ever really necessary?

Or this. If you can stomach it.
