Hi again its Debra busy times at the moment with stock arrival and everyone getting ready for the festive season
I thought today we could cover a little about a mirror that seems to have been around for a long time and also copied by many the 2028c scissor arm magnifying mirror. Always popular with it seems an unlikely timeless design. This design reminds us or prompts us to think it’s a mirror you would expect to see in an old hotel in the early 1900s or the local barber shop. The distinctive feature is the scissor arm which extends the magnifying mirror out from the wall.
Having looked at our full range of mirrors I believe it this wall mount mirror will extend out 60cm from the wall which is further than any model on the market – apart from the copies out there. If anyone has purchased a copy from overseas then they soon find out the wall bracket that supports the mirror does not have sufficient strength. Our 2028C wall mount magnifying mirror is of the highest quality with more than enough strength to allow the mirror to extend 60cm and swing from left to right 180 degrees. This mirror itself is double sided and by turning the mirror you can have either 4x magnification for close up attention or 1x to see that all is in order before you walk out the door.
As always I like to give you the space requirement for the scissor arm magnifying mirror so you can plan the best place to put it. As we know all bathrooms are very different hence the versatility of the scissor arm. This mirror will fold back flat against the wall so its neat and tidy the dimensions are as follows with the unit folded back into the smallest possible configuration 41cm high and 23.5cm. Meaning these are it’s highest and widest points.
Mounting this scissor arm magnifying mirror on the wall is the easiest of all with two screws provided, they should be screwed directly into timber located behind the plaster or if you have a tiled surface then drill the holes and put plastic plugs in then screw your screws into the plugs.
When looking over the website whilst the image is fairly obvious its best to look at the code with the numbers 2028 mean the mirror the C stands for chrome and this mirror is available in G so it will have a G after the code. Both models are made from steel and the surfaces Chrome or Gold are a plated finish.
Because we have had enquiries I need to remind you do not mount the mirror inside the shower cubicle. The mirror is real glass and can shatter easily should hot water hit the surface or if you slip and grab for the mirror on instinct it can be very dangerous. Broken glass inside a shower cubicle can result in a nasty cut. Also the metal scissor arm will rust. Chrome, Gold, or Brass plating will not prevent steel from rusting when they get wet with shower water everyday.
A normal mounting in a bathroom will see your mirror last for a long time with the only action you need to do is keep you mirror nice and clean which can be done with a soft rag.
The 2028 Scissor Arm magnifying mirror is a quality buy and should last a lifetime.
In the meantime smile Christmas is coming :)

Hi everyone once again its Debra again.
It’s hard to imagine mirrors have been in use in one form or another for thousands of years, at first it was just a pool of water, then a piece of polished stone or metal, thankfully today’s mirrors are really clear and very helpful when using a magnifying type of mirror.
Although mirrors are more associated with women, men will use a magnifying mirror also and not just through being conscious of their appearance. There are many good reasons to have a lighted magnifying mirror in your home such as the NGLED410.
Let me explain some of those reasons and why I suggested what basically is the best mirror in our range.
Many people need glasses these days, and with age, the problems only get worse.
Like myself I suffer from ophthalmic eye issues. The NGLED410 is a 10 times magnifying lighted mirror, it has a clean clear white LED light which is excellent when needing to clean excess oils from the glands in the eyelids. That’s something you need to be very careful with on a daily basis and it’s so easy to damage an eye. The same goes when there is an eyelash that that gets lodged partially in the eyelid.
A 10 times magnifying mirror of this quality can help you see clearly to attend to any issues one might have in this area of personal health. Your normal mirror or one with a lesser magnification will not be good enough for a person with any eye health issues.
Aside from eye health conditions just putting eye liner on or inserting contact lenses in correctly when using this 10x mirror becomes very easy. If you’re a man and you use this mirror to shave with, then I can guarantee you will never miss a stray whisker.
Finally the NGLED410 vanity lighted magnifying mirror is very elegant to look at with the satin nickel finish. It fits right in with any kind of décor, and will certainly stand out as the feature in your bathroom. Its practicalities are excellent being double sided mirror meaning 10x and 1x normal magnification on the reverse side.
The best part being it’s portable and has duel power arrangement meaning it can be used with just 4 “C” size cell batteries which means you can walk from room to room in your house if needed or just plug it into a power point.
The LED halo light with halo meaning the outer rim of the mirror throws a nice gentle glow on your face really giving you the best benefit as many bathrooms do not have great lighting. All those shadows and strange colors disappear when you use a mirror like this one. This magnifying mirror is halo lighted on both sides.
Just another idea for Christmas I will cover many more over the coming weeks.
In the mean time SMILE : ) and have a great week

Hi everybody Debra again have had a great week?
This week I wanted to cover some points related to magnifying mirrors with lights.
Enquiries have come in about how bright they are and can a bigger globe be put in to make it brighter. This happens in around one in a hundred sales meaning it’s important to cover this issue.
The level of light that these halo style – halo meaning the lighting comes from around the edge of the mirror is set by the manufacturer to give the most natural look to your face when using the mirror.
The HL7 and 8 models use a 15 watt globe which does not seem much however in the reflective interior of the mirror it comes out at just the right level.
Having the halo lighting excessively bright will not allow you to get the natural look leading you to over compensate with makeup to get the right look. End result is your makeup is not what you expect. Likely you finish with some funny looks from others.
Some requests were to put bigger globes in the halo mirrors and they had to turn all the bathroom lights on and it was still not bright enough. That’s more likely and eyesight issue than the mirror lighting level.
The LED power saving halo lighted mirrors has a cold light made up from dozens of small bulbs which give off a stark bluish white color. They are usually brighter than the standard warm white globe models whic hare much friendlier to your face in looks.
I hope that information is of use to you.
In the mean time smile and have a great week

Hi Everyone Its Debbie back again. It’s been a very busy couple of weeks with looking through new lines we want to introduce to you as they come into stock. More on that later although I must say our Baby bottle Nipple sanitizer would be the only one of its kind in Australia. They were introduced in the US just 7 months ago. Small and portable it’s been very popular for when your out with baby and some of those public places are just not quite clean enough particularly if a dummy hits the ground.
We receive questions regarding which magnification would be best for somebody in particular. Most of these questions arise from somebody considering a 10x magnifying mirror. In order to use this mirror properly the optimum distance your face should be from the mirror is 4inches or 10cm away. Some customers have said the mirror is to blurry. It’s just that they are not close enough to the mirror.
Have had some husbands thinking they are doing the right thing only to find their partner does need anywhere near that magnification. If your eyesight is very poor when you take your glasses off then this is the mirror for you. As a general guide line and you’re just starting out with a magnifying mirror then choose the 3 or 5 times magnification and you won’t be disappointed. The only other consideration you need is the lighting in your bathroom of a good standard? This will then get you thinking do you need a lighted magnifying mirror or one without lights.
Our Pinterest site is still happening, the moment its ready I will let you know.
In the meantime remember to smile and we hope you all have a great week.

Hi Debra again, with this post I want to bring to you a few words of caution about putting a magnifying mirror in your shower. It has become very popular of late to have a one of these mirrors mounted inside the shower cubicle. Men like it when they want to blade shave, something about the hot water and steam makes it nice to shave in the shower.
Please only ever put a magnifying mirror that’s designed and designated into your shower cubicle. The material used in these mirrors will not crack, break of fall apart eliminating the possibility of a nasty cut from broken glass.
There have been many instances where people who do not expect anything to go wrong do put standard magnifying mirrors mounted on the wall inside the shower cubicle. Hot water spraying in the wrong direction can make the glass crack and fall out and possible hit you on the foot. That generally results in a nasty cut and a lot blood, no fun.
It’s sometimes easy to slip over in the shower and your natural reflex will have you reaching for something to stop yourself falling, once again it’s very easy to break the glass and have it hitting you some where on the body. Nasty cut loss of plenty of blood, not something we want to encourage.
Finally the standard mirrors are not made to be covered in water and steam – they rust very quickly as most mirrors are manufactured with steel and then chrome plated.
A true shower mirror often marketed as afogless mirror does not use glass they use mostly poly carbonate which does not shatter when it’s dropped. Add to that the surface of the mirror is treated to prevent it fogging up, something the standard mirror cannot do.
Please choose carefully should you want to have a magnifying mirror in the shower. Next post I will explain some of the features on one of our magnifying mirror’s that’s unique as against all the other models. Until next time.
Remember to smile and have great week
