How to Buy a Dressing Table Mirror – Important Things To Consider


Whether you are buying a dressing table mirror by itself or in conjunction with a new dressing table, there are a few areas of consideration to be aware of which will assist you in making your final decision. Dressing table mirrors are a great addition to any room. Not only do they provide function in the room and are used on a daily basis but they also improve the aesthetics and appeal of any bedroom.

#1. Modern Vs Traditional Mirrors

Dressing table mirrors are available in many different styles. Whether you choose to go with a modern mirror or a traditional styled mirror is entirely your choice. However, in making your decision, take into account surrounding furniture and the colours used in the room.

Obviously, a traditional styled mirror will look out of place in a modern bedroom and vice versa. However, colours play a more important part than one many think. For a modern coloured room with traditional styled furniture, both styles of mirrors can look acceptable.

#2. Shape And Size Of Mirror

In addition to being available in various styles, dressing table mirrors can be bought in many different shapes and sizes. To a certain extent the shape of mirror you decide to buy is closely related to the style in which you decide to buy. However in saying that, two mirrors may be the same shape, one being modern and the other more traditional.

The size of the mirror will be dependent on the size of your dressing table. There are advantages in having a larger surfaced mirror, such as opening up the room and creating an illusion that there is more space. A smaller mirror would be more appropriate if you want to draw focus to other features in the room.

#3. Border Of Mirror

It can be said that when choosing a dressing table mirror, that you are deciding on the frame instead. How much can mirrors really differ? Take this into account when making your decision. The style, colour and thickness of the border should be consistent with the colour and decor of your bedroom. If this is not possible, try to make the dressing table mirror as least contrasting as possible, perhaps by buying a borderless mirror.

Additionally, the materials used in the border are an important aspect to consider. Some materials commonly used include steel, wood, wicker, plastic and fabric.

#4. Buy An Illuminated Mirror

Illuminated mirror allow you to look at yourself in a lighting that is diffused and just right to make you see yourself in the right light and can cast the most relaxing shadows around you. Another advantage that you will get with an illuminated dressing table mirrors is that you don’t have to make cleaning of them a regular chore. As the lamps in illuminated mirrors are behind the glass, the surface on top remains smooth and hence easy to clean. There are no small nooks and crevices in an illuminated dressing table mirror for you to try hard to scrub out the dirt from.

An illuminated mirror is just the right mirror to be used for shaving or applying makeup with precision.

#5. Other Factors To Take Into Account

Obviously, do not choose a dressing table mirror in isolation. Make sure it will suit the actual dressing table and be compatible (size and connecting the two together). Whether you go with a mirror that needs to be attached or one that sits on the table is entirely your decision and will not make a big difference.

Similarly, dressing table mirrors can be static (as in not movable) or adjustable. Obviously adjustable types are more functional; however it will depend on what uses you intend to use the mirror for. You may also choose to go with multiple mirrors instead of a single faced mirror.

A great gift idea from Jord Wood Watch

My husband’s already owned a Jord Wood Watch, the Delmar Red that I gifted him for his birthday last year. Now I’m very happy I’ve got to own one from the same brand and this time it’s the Ely Cherry Wood watch, hubby’s watch has a bigger design and I’m glad they also have smaller ones fit for ladies, actually it’s  unisex, and I like it . What I like about their watches is theses are made from real of wood, not plastic made to look like wood, for an environmental advocate and nature-lover like me, this is just perfect..

I am a casual dresser person and I think suits my style just right. I can wear this watch everyday and go on with active lifestyle without sacrificing a bit of my fashion sense.

Jord Wood Watches is a locally owned St. Louis, Missouri company and they design/produce real wood watches  from sustainable materials from all around the world. So if you’re looking for something that is down-to-earth then this is one watch that’s definitely for you. And with the prices being reasonable, well I don’t think you’d go wrong.


Here is the close-up Ely Cherry design I picked this as it seemed like the smallest one out of the selection.

Here is the description of this design found on their website:

Ely is the complement to our Fieldcrest series, produced using a slightly smaller dial and band, with the addition of a date display. The simplicity of this design accentuates the intricacy of the wood grain. The Ely is understated and effortless.

Fashionable and timeless gifts for your loved ones

The heart month has come and gone and yet our penchant for gift giving doesn’t end with once or twice a year but on all special occasions that we can think of. Even ones we tend to make a celebration out of just for the heck of it.

And because of all these celebrations we make, we also get to that point wherein we eventually run out of ideas for gifts. One of the good ideas to fall back on would be knowing what that person is interested in, whether it’s a missing angel figurine, or a red colored mug to complete the rainbow collection. Even a handwritten letter sent by post also makes a world of difference specially in this new technology era that we are in.

All these pieces plus a few jewelry or platinum rings will always leave an impression and will continue to give you a few more gifts to give in the years to come.

Beauty and Wellness in Fashion Accessories

HB_DBL_Amethyst_Sodalite_Hematite_Magnetic_Bracelet__72479.1405452714.386.513Multi-tasking doesn’t only apply in the workforce nowadays. Fashion pieces like bags, clothes, and accessories are now designed for multiple functions. Fashion runways even made room for wearable technology in the recent fashion week events. One accessory that combines fashion, beauty and wellness is the magnetic bracelet. The main attraction of these metallic pieces is the healing properties associated with it. It is supposedly able to help improve blood circulation, relieve pain, help neutralize free radicals, and improve one’s general well being. They are usually available in stainless steel, copper, titanium, and other metallic materials. But I also found a magnetic bracelet that has incorporated crystals in their design.
