• Lifestyle: Light up your home

    Light your home up this Christmas, after all  Tis the season to be jolly. When I moved into my apartment earlier this year, one of the main things that stood out for me was the lighting in my new home. I am very particular about lighting in my home, especially the bedroom. Boo would tell you how fussy I am on outing lighting in the bedroom, even just little flick of light coming from laptops charging, electrical on standpoint all of that stops me from actually having a good night’s sleep for me it has to be pitch black.  Light your home
    For the rest of the house I am not worried about flickering lights but I do want when I am in the room the light is not too bright, does not take forever to reach its brightness peak and can be adjustable. In my apartment I am fortunate that the lighting is not too bad and I can manage, except for the bathroom. Because of how the bathroom/toilet room is shaped it is difficult to appreciate the lighting. The toilet area and the shower area are fine it’s not bright but it’s not too deem either but by the sink where my mirror is there is hardly any lighting coming through.

    Scouring the net I came across Lighting Styles bathroom lighting ideas which are absolutely awesome. I particularly fell in love with the illuminated magnified vanity mirror which would solve some of my problems or better yet I could use the over mirror lighting (with a built-in shaver socket for boo) which would be more ideal.

      I’m lucky as our apartment has a lot of natural light and we do not need many artificial lights. The illuminated magnified vanity mirror would be a really great addition to our bathroom!

        Oh wow that’s awesome, I would love natural light one day in my home

      I keep telling myself that I need to get a mirror like this for when I do my make-up! My lighting is pretty good so I’m not that desperate yet. I’ll keep this one in mind!

      • December 11, 2015 / 6:06 pm

        That’s good, at least you will know when you need it

      This is an interesting product and one I’ve not seen before. I’m always looking for light when using my mirror, as i need to see what im doing so this looks like a good solution!

      • December 11, 2015 / 10:05 am

        I think it’s a good solution too, don’t want to come out with patchy makeup due to bad lighting lol

      That magnified vanity mirror looks so pretty and modern. I’d love to have one of those in my home.

        Thanks Maureen, it’s a lovely piece to have

      The sun goes down really early in these parts. I don’t wear makeup a lot but when I do it would be nice to have a mirror like that.

      • December 11, 2015 / 5:52 am

        I am the same but it’s very convenient having one

    6. December 11, 2015 / 2:40 am

      This is a great light fixture for my home. I love adding illumination to our place.

      • December 11, 2015 / 5:53 am

        It’s an awesome item to have

      A swiveling wall mirror is one of my favorite things when I stay in hotels. I have always wanted one for my house, but wasn’t sure where to find one. This one looks perfect.

      • December 11, 2015 / 5:54 am

        I know right, when I am in a hotel I am always jealous of those mirrors now I can have one for myself

    8. December 10, 2015 / 10:45 pm

      What a perfect mirror to have in your bathroom!! Having good lighting for applying make up and skin care is crucial.

      • December 10, 2015 / 10:54 pm

        Thanks, I agree too

    9. December 10, 2015 / 6:33 pm

      What a great little lighted mirror! I’m with you! Proper lighting in your home can really set the mood. And yes in the bedroom, it must be dark. We’ve got room darkening curtains that help a lot.

      • December 10, 2015 / 10:52 pm

        I need to have the darkening curtains or blinds for my bedroom

    10. December 10, 2015 / 5:49 pm

      The right lighting is essential for any room! Proper lighting really does make a room so much better. We are renovating different rooms and are looking for new lighting options.

      • December 10, 2015 / 6:29 pm

        I hope you get a look at lighting styles good luck with your renovations

    11. December 10, 2015 / 5:14 pm

      The first time I saw a mirror like that was when we were on vacation and I have wanted one ever since!
      Perfect for makeup and boy oh boy can you get a much better look as your skin too. (somedays that’s not a good thing)

      • December 10, 2015 / 6:27 pm

        Hahaha some days definitely not good to look at the face too closely lol.

    12. December 10, 2015 / 5:08 pm

      I really like that vanity mirror it looks very unique. It would fab as it will no longer be as tricky to do my make up if I had one of these

      • December 10, 2015 / 6:26 pm

        My think exactly, vanity mirror like this helps when doing makeup

    13. December 10, 2015 / 4:47 pm

      Lighting really is so important. We switched all our lights to daylight bulbs. No more of that weird yellow light everywhere. I love it.

      • December 10, 2015 / 4:49 pm

        I need to get some daylight bulbs for the office soon.

    14. December 10, 2015 / 3:56 pm

      Those are great lighting and mirror ideas!! We mostly have flourescent lights at home, but I’ll try to incorporate your ideas too!

        Illuminated mirrors makes it easier to apply makeup

    17. December 10, 2015 / 11:45 am

      I’m in the middle of remodeling my bathroom and this light would make a great addition. The right lighting really does make a room feel complete.

      • December 10, 2015 / 11:50 am

        I couldn’t agree more, I am struggling big time with my bathroom so this will be a great addition

    18. December 10, 2015 / 5:20 am

      I would LOVE to have a vanity mirror in my bathroom! It can be a pain to do makeup leaning so far over the sink.

      • December 10, 2015 / 5:22 am
