Hello lovely followers!
Thought I'd share my newest purchase incase any of you were after a new mirror or wanted something pretty to stick on your Christmas List!
So here is Erikson Beamons for Debenhams "Cream Pearl Dressing Table Mirror", which I purchased on their website here for £22. I also used the code 'SHD1' to get free delivery worth £3.95 so i'm happy with that!
I was just flicking through the website and this caught my eye, I loved everything about it, the shape, the colour, the pearls etc. But upon arrival, there is only one thing I don't like about it - the size! The thing is, the measurements were actually given on the website so I feel stupid for not checking them out first so it's totally my own fault lol. So if you're about to order something, always whip out a tape measure and check the sizes to avoid dissapointment. Don't get me wrong, it's not a teeny tiny micro invisible mirror. It's absolutely fine for doing your makeup in but not your hair really (unless you have short hair I guess!). Though if you were after a beautiful make-up mirror which didn't take up much space then this may just be perfect for you!
The measurements given on the site are 29 x 18cm.
This is accurate but that's from the top of the mirror to the bottom of the stand and from either side of the silver balls. The mirror itself is a around 7 x 5 inches
My first thoughts upon seeing the box were 'Hmmmm that's quite a small box' and when I pulled the mirror out I initially felt dissappointed as the mirror was quite a bit smaller than I had imagined. However, my immediate second thought was 'Gosh it's sooooooo beautiful though, really well made!'. It's like a fairy-tale mirror!
There seems to be a yellow tinge on the picture but the base it totally cream, no dark patches!
Initially I was in two minds about whether to keep it or return it because I was after something bigger but I've fallen in love with it, it really is stunning and it looks alot more expensive than it is. Every little pearl is perfect and it's all shiny and lovely, there is no imperfections with the mirror whatsoever. It is so pretty and it's one of those rare things that actually looks a lot better in real life than it does on the website.
The mirror can be moved and tightentened into position with the silver balls either side. And another neat feature is that the mirror can be removed from the back. So the mirror can be replaced should you ever smash it or it could actually be turned into a beautiful photo frame if you'd prefer
I haven't got a proper dressing table yet but I can imagine this looking magical on any dressing table. I plan to use something to prop it up abit though as it's not very tall.
But I guess good things sometimes do come in small packages, as they say :)
