The mirror

Hello love bugs!

A few weeks ago I went to our local value village in search of some vintage clothes.

I had a really cool wardrobe idea, where I was going to buy clothes either made it a certain era or inspired by a certain era. My plan is to start from the 1930s and then work my way up all the way to the 1980s.

While I was searching for clothes I found this light up magnifying mirror. I’ve always wanted a light up magnifying mirror, and this was only $3.99! So I got it. But I knew for it to be sold at such a low price there had to be some problem with it.

Was it the USB plug in? Was it broken there?

Nope when I got home and plugged it in, all was fine

Was it the actual lights?

Nope the lights worked perfectly, although I was a bit scared at first, when I stepped away from the light it would turn off, so I thought that that was the problem, it didn’t stay on for very long. Later I figured out that it’s motion sensor and you have to be close enough to see your face magnified for it to stay on. Once you’re close enough to do your makeup and whatnot it will stay on!

So I found this to be a mega steal, and it’s my new favorite mirror!

What do you this of my wardrobe idea?

Magnifying mirrors or normal mirrors?
