DIY mason jar lace decor!

I had a whole bunch of little candles lying round the house and so I thought why not put them in mason jars to make them look like cute votive candles. But then I thought to myself “that’s not enough.” They definitely needed something more on them to look pretty, which was when I decided to add some lace and ribbon around them, just to give them something more to look at.

This is really simple to do at home and cheap as well. Half the stuff were things I had in my house. I only made a run to Hobby Lobby for some lace trims. All you need are:

  • Candles
  • Mason jars
  • Lace fabric or trims
  • Ribbon
  • scissors

  1.  Measure out the lace around the jar and cut it, just leaving a little fabric to go over.
  2. Measure out the ribbon around the jar as well, making sure it’s long enough to tie a bow
  3. Wrap the lace around the jar and secure it with the ribbon making a knot and then a bow. (Don’t worry if the lace is loose, you can always tighten it once the ribbon is tied. Or you can always secure it with a pin)
  4. Add a candle into the jar and light it. As simple as that 🙂

Charlotte Russe haul!

So I am seriously obsessed with this store. I’m not into their clothes, but I LOVE their shoes and accessories. I can spend hours at a time trying on every pair of heels and actually buy something as they have great prices, especially when on sale. Now is the perfect time as it’s sale season so I decided to purchase two pairs of shoes for $15 each 😀 There’s nothing like retail therapy to make you feel better! And if you are military, you also get 10% off.

Beige heels with studs on them. They have the same shoe in black as well!

I cannot wait to wear these as it’s got glitter on it. I feel ridiculous typing that. but fact is I love all the things that sparkle, including shoes lol. What I like about these are that it’s not on the full shoe, just on front, so when you go out, it’s not completely over the top, but enough to make you looked dressed up.

There is nothing better than cozying up on the couch watching your favourite show while sipping on some hot apple cider during the winter season. I love this drink and did not realize how easy it is to make at home till I You Tubed a recipe. It so delicious and I definitely recommend trying this out as most of the ingredients are to be found in your kitchen. (Cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar etc)
