Lilac Love Part #2

Following on from my last post I thought I'd share some of the lilac things currently on my ASOS wishlist.  It's been so long since I've placed an order with ASOS and I'm just itching to get some things ordered but I'm trying to save up some money first. Meh.

1. ASOS lilac ponti blazer £28
2. ASOS super skinny belt £6 
3. ASOS slipper vamp kitten heels £24
4. ASOS high waisted lilac jean £32
5. ASOS bodycon ruched dress £12.50

(all prices correct at time of posting but you know what ASOS is like with changing their prices!)

Any of you with a lilac bug?  Link me up with any other fab lilac finds!

Lilac Love Part #1

I have developed a "thing" for lilac over the last couple of weeks. I think as spring has sprung I have been thinking about pastels and I was searching for a pastel polish to go with a floral top I have.  I had lilac in my head and was mooching around Boots when I realised I had Models Own "Lilac Dream" at home.  I put it on with a top coat of Seche Vite (yep, still got a "thing" for it too).

This is one of the reasons why I love blogging. I forgot I had blogged about it almost a year to today and couldn't remember what it was like on so gave it a whirl and the latest results are below...

I was SO pleased with this shade, with the coverage of two good coats and a topcoat.  I think it looks so different from how it did in my first blog post and to be honest if I'd have looked at it before applying this time I don't know if I'd have went for it. Don't you think it looks very different? I think it looks so much nicer this time.  I don't know if it's the topcoat that has given it that something a bit special.   I can tell you for sure what it has done though...  I am now on my 9th yes NINTH day of this polish - the photo was taken on day 7.   The longevity of this combination is outstanding.  Really, really impressive.  I now have one small chip on my right thumb nail and a tiny bit of wear from the tips.

Good isn't it?

Anyway just thought I'd share as honestly I'm so impressed (in case you hadn't noticed).

Also am I the only one of used their own blog to look back and compare?   It's like my own little diary of beauty stuffs.  I'll be back soon with more lilac love in the shape of a lust list of lilac coloured fashion things so keep a look out for that...

In my room...

Picture heavy.

This isn't my bedroom and it isn't my shoe room (well the room with the other wardrobe and cabinet with shoes) but it is our spare room. It still needs a LOT of work but recently we've waved an Ikea wand over it and have a Pax Lyngdal Wardrobe (200 x 236cm I believe) with various accessories, a Ransby dressing table in oak, and some bed covers too. I should point out only the left side of the wardrobe is mine. MrL insisted he be allowed wardrobe space so claimed the right. Meh.

Wardrobe (Pax with Oak). Excuse the boxes of wedding things beside it, we've only been married for almost 4.5 years, I haven't had time to clear all my wedding stuff away yet!

Ransby Oak Dressing Table & Stool (can't find it online and it wasn't online when we bought it at the end of last either so maybe it's in store). I built the stool, oh yes. Flat pack fiend.

So there. I know there's a lot more work to be done. I need to do some more serious decluttering and I want some nice navy cushions and pictures and a white light fitting. I also kind of need to win the lottery.

I hope you enjoyed having a nosey at one of my little rooms. Recognise any of my make up/toiletry bits as your faves?
