These lace jars were so easy to make and look so pretty and elegant. The jars are just old food jars washed out, and the lace I picked up from a market (1 euro for loads of the stuff, ooooh I love a bargain)
To make them, I just simple cut the lace to the correct size, and using a cheap-as-chips glue stick, glued the lace to the jar. I then wiped the glue off where there were large gaps in the lace. Easy!
These jars can we used for all sorts, but I think I will fill one with pens, and the other can hold my makeup brushes. Just what I needed.
P.s. Let me know what you think of these DIY posts? I recently made some bunting, and am going to make some more soon. I could do a step by step tutorial?

But over here in Malta it is still about 27 degrees. And it's hard to get excited about Winter and Christmas when sunbathing on a beach!
I have been told it will get cold in a month or so though, so my wishlist reflects what I would like as the weather gets a bit cooler. (Plus I am going home for a couple of weeks for Christmas so will need some bits then)
So here goes:
- Essie nail varnish in the colour 'Carry On'
- 'Live Laugh Love' Cushion from Next
- Jumper from Mango
- Black Bag from Zara
- Lipstick from Topshop in the colour Beguiled
- Flask from Cath Kidston

So this may seem like a really obvious thing to some people, I know it is to me, but there may be some people who would like to know this simple trick for making less mess when applying your mascara.
I mentioned it briefly to my housemates a while ago and none of them had heard of this trick I thought was so widely known, and they were pretty pleased to hear this tip.
To stop your mascara smudging and leaving marks on the top of your eye under your brow bone, you should do your lower lashes first...
and that's it :)
Simple trick, but if you put mascara on the other way round, you will probably notice the difference if you switch.
Hope this helped

This morning I work up and the view from our balcony was breathtaking and I had to take a picture (mainly to show off to family and friends from home).
Then at around mid day we had the craziest thunderstorm. It came on so quickly and heavy. The sea got really choppy, and we could see the boats struggling to come in to harbour. The roads were flooded in about five minutes, we experienced the loudest thunder, not to mention the lightening which was purple! My housemates and I just stood out on our balcony and watched in awe at the scene in front of us. I managed to take a picture of the thunder clouds rolling in before the rain started tipping it down.
That evening there was a beautiful subtle sunset over the city of Valletta, and once the sun had set you could see the whole town lit up and it's mirror reflection in the water.
So today I ended up with four very different pictures of the same view from my balcony. Looking at them reminds me how lucky I am to be here, experiencing this incredible country and all it has to offer.

So it's official. I'm addicted to Pinterest. If I'm not reading blogs or vlogs then I'm pinning. And not just a little...it's all the time.
If you don't know what Pinterest is, then where have you been?
Pinterest is a virtual pin board It's a site where people can upload and view other people pictures, and then 'pin' them to their own boards.
I try and explain it to all my friends and they don't really understand it. And I get that, because I was pretty unsure about it at first. But trust me, give it a go.
You can get craft ideas, decorating ideas, recipes ideas, funny pictures to cheer you up, outfit ideas, nail varnish ideas and loads loads more.
But be warned, it is addictive!
