Mirror Mirror On the Wall…

A few weeks ago I went to my college roommate’s house to spend the weekend and I came across a hugely important discovery…it’s all about the mirror!!! I had to try to get ready in a normal bathroom for two days…and some of those times I wasn’t allowed in the bathroom because someone else was using it, so I had to use one of the little compact mirrors that is embedded in a tiny compact. Lame. And so incredibly difficult!

Therefore I am sharing with you one of my beloved beauty secrets:


Ta-da! It swivels out from the wall, has a light around the rim and 3 different magnifying areas: normal, x3 and x5! Seriously, it blows the mind what you’re able to see in a close-up mirror with extra light! It’s one of the best birthday presents ever (from my dear husband). Problem is, it spoils me, and I have such a hard time doing my makeup well without it! I hate leaning over the counter to get good eyeliner or make sure my foundation is completely blended. I think this one was from Linen’s N Things, but you can find them at that type of store. I want to say it was $70-80 but soooooo woth it (and you could probably find them cheaper)! It plugs into the wall for it’s electricity and you could leave it plugged in since it has an on/off switch, but since my plug is on the other side of the counter, I only plug it in when I need it.


Anyway, long story, short story – my mirror is awesome and I think all beauty junkies like myself need to have one!

    You know, there’s no brand listed on it. We got it from Linens N’ Things before they went belly up. No, it wasn’t hard to install. I think we needed a drill, but it didn’t take very long. You do need two people though – one to hold it up while the other looks at placement, drills and such. Good luck!!
