Handmade Camera Strap Giveaway!


Ever since I met my friend, Lauren, I have always had my eye on her pretty fabric camera strap.  It sounded so much more comfortable than the standard strap, and it was a little bit longer which allowed it to be worn cross body so you don’t have to worry about it falling off your shoulder when you are carrying around a feisty toddler.


See that gorgeous strap on her shoulder?! Yes, that’s it!

Of course I asked her where she got it, and she quickly told me from the August Blossoms Etsy store.  I went home and browsed the store, but for some reason I couldn’t pull the plug on the strap….I wish I would have.  Flash forward a few years later, I decided I really needed (or at least I told myself so…) a fabric camera strap. Being a stylish blogger, who would expect anything less?!  Denise, the creator of August Blossoms has so many beautiful fabric choices (like 28 or more in her store!), and these were a couple of my favorites…

I ended up deciding on the Yellow Chevron/Grey Dot, because I am yellow/grey obsessed. I just loved it.  I ordered it and a couple days later I had my beautiful strap!  Then, after a couple weeks of using it, I though to myself, ‘I know my readers would LOVE these straps’, and I really wanted to share them.  Denise, from August Blossoms agreed to give not one, but TWO camera straps to giveaway to my readers! She also sent me another strap, so I can switch it up when I am feeling like a change. Check out the great quality of this strap…

It’s double sides so you get 2 great looks on one strap…

Strap has fleece lining for extra comfort, is also wider to accommodate lens cap holder, and longer so it can be worn across your body.


See that pocket where the card is? That is a pocket for your lens cap, so it never gets lost! Genius!


This strap totally replaces your old strap because you are able to thread it through the strap part of your camera!

Okay, now on to the giveaway!!!  There are only 2 ways to enter, so make sure you do them both for double your chances to win!  You must (mandatory) follow August Blossoms on Instagram, and you can also add entries for liking the Domestic Superhero facebook page.  Now, I know you might be thinking, “I don’t have instagram!” Well then now is the perfect time to make one!

The Best Ever Easy Garlic Bread


We probably eat pasta once a week or at least a couple times a month. It’s quick and easy and time is one thing we are always running short on.  I love making garlic bread to go with pasta, and it wasn’t until recently that I thought to add some seasoning to it.  Why wasn’t I doing this before?!? It seriously adds so much to the bread, and it makes it soooo yummy! It only takes a few minutes and it’s well worth it.  So far I have only used dry spices to make it, but I think once my herb plants start growing in the next few weeks, I will try using fresh herbs. I can’t … ...read more

Barilla Share the Table & a 20 minute Cheesy Pasta Bake recipe


Nowadays, everyone is so busy that it seems like there is little time to sit down as a family and enjoy a meal.  In our house both my husband and I work full-time out of the home, and my son is in daycare all day.  By the time my husband picks up my son, Austin (3), from school, it’s around 5:30pm, and then already 6pm when they get home. I get home shortly after around 6:30pm.  Then it’s always a scramble to make dinner and have some time eating together before it’s time to start Austin’s bedtime routine.  Most days it is really hard to sit down as a family to eat, and I … ...read more
