Color Crush: Orange & Grapefruit

Next up on the Citrus Color Crush list are Orange and Grapefruit. Pink and orange together used to seem a little too Lisa Frank for me, (anybody else picturing their unicorn bedazzled binders?) but lately I have warmed up to the duo.

Grapefruit: sunglasses. nail polish. body oil. camera. wallet. sandals. lingerie. clutch. heels. jumpsuit.

Pair: clutch. perfume. lipstick. espadrilles. bra. note pad. body cream. necklace. dress.

I scrolled like a mad woman until I came across a recipe I pinned months ago: Lemon Poppyseed Doughnuts by the Novice Chef. Within two hours, I was pulling these babies out of the oven:

They were light, refreshing, lemony and so delicious. I only made a few changes to the recipe.

1. I used a full sized doughnut tray, which gave me about 9 dou…
