For the past few years we've been making do with a pretty rubbish selection of mirrors at home, in fact I most often use the oven door or my phone screen instead - that probably explains a lot.
This is my reflection in the bathroom mirror
Dan uses this in his dressing room
And this is the closest to full length we get (but rarely full width)
It doesn't get much lighter than this even when the sun's out, not ideal for make up when you're a very short sighted girl. Impressive I'm sure you'll agree.
Last night I was tasked with finding a new mirror, we've looked at dozens but none have been quite right. I found one on ebay. I have bought two things from that site before and they were both take it or leave it prices, so I'm not very good at the whole bidding thing, nor am I patient when I finally see something I would like. So I clicked Buy It Now (yes, you should all try to sell me things as I'll just pay the suggested price). I did get a bit flustered at checkout as the seller said they wanted cash, I had no idea how to do that so they had PayPal instead (she wasn't best pleased). Anyway, she lived very nearby and wanted us to take it away that night. So we did.
And now it is pride of place, reflecting the glamour of my bedroom blinds on top of my chest of drawers. Have I spoken about how much I dislike the G Plan stuff we bought earlier this year? It's totally unsuitable for my needs, but Dan loves it and it does look nice in the room, I'll never know how I drew the short straw and got the tiny set of drawers when he has the other, lovely one. Maybe because he paid for it? Who knows.
There's no mark or branding on the mirror so I know nothing about it, other than I can now see my big daft face whenever I like!
