I mean, come on. Look at that bread and tell me you don’t want to shove a slice in your mouth right now. I even threw in some chocolate chips for extra amazing factor. It’s so moist and soft because the cake mix and bananas got married to become this delicious creation. My little guy couldn’t get enough of this Chocolate Banana Bread. Make it make it make it.

Guys, I’m not gonna lie to you, I’ve tried the homemade laundry detergent before intending to share it… and it was awful! I actually tried homemade laundry detergents twice before this one and both just did not make the cut. I had basically almost given up on DIY laundry detergent completely, when my good friend Keesha text me and said she had a recipe and wanted to make it together! I had my doubts, but she told me her mom and her sister had both been using this kind forever and swore by it and I decided I would give it a go. Holy cow.. I am in love with the stuff! I don’t know if it was because my first two attempts were for dry laundry detergent, or what, but this DIY liquid laundry detergent is AMAZING!
Every time I open up the washer to switch loads I am filled with joy because it smells fresh and clean, leaves no gross residue, and gets out tough dirt and stains! I have been so impressed, I basically couldn’t wait to share it with you. Not to mention, the recipe makes a 5 gallon tub and you only need 1/2 cup detergent for top loader machines and 1/4 for front loader machines per load! Suffice it to say, this recipe is gonna shrink your laundry expenses considerably! Let’s get started shall we? [Read more...]
It’s Kara from While Camden Sleeps here to share another easy sewing project, the lace embellished trucker hat! I’m so excited with how this turned out–especially since it took me less than a half hour!
Back in high school, I refashioned a wedding dress into a prom dress. I used some bridal lace from Joann’s to make the sleeves a little thicker. It’s been 7 years and I still had some of that lace left over taunting me in my craft room. I’m glad I finally put it to good use on this hat!
I got my hat from Amazon and they have almost every color you can image for pretty cheap, I got mine here. I love how the lace provides the perfect feminine juxtaposition to the casual nature of a trucker hat.
This was such a fun project, anyone can do it! [Read more...]
