Mirror, Mirror...

Oh the classic line of "Mirror, mirror on the wall / Who in the land is fairest of all?" came to mind when I think of mirror... or when I happened to look into one.

With so many types and designs available on mirrors nowadays, it's by no mean an easy task to choose one that fits your style and purpose of owning one. I personally feel that getting a mirror requires proper planning and decision making - for example: whether it fulfils the purpose and how it is going to complement the look of your room.

I think one of the most commonly owned mirrors is the decorative vanity mirrors. To me, I feel that a great vanity mirror is one that is functional, practical and beautiful all at once. I would personally go for something simpler in style, and yet look classy and unique at the same time. I mean, look at the vanity mirror shown below! I would stop few times not only to check my reflection, but just to admire the design and the mirror's artwork too!

And then how about full length floor mirrors? This type of mirrors not only complements and enhances the outlook of a room, it also does wonder with the interior design of a room as well. Placed appropriately, it might help enhance the lighting in a room and also makes objects in the room appear larger. Wouldn't you want to own a floor mirror like this?

So what about you? What type of mirrors do you like and do you think they are important?

Pregnancy Requires More Iron...

~ Posted on Wednesday, June 8, 2011 at 8:28 AM ~

I came across this article (screenshot below) which mentioned:

"Pregnant women need to produce more red blood cells (to share with the fetus) than when they aren't pregnant. To make this extra blood, pregnant women need to get more iron. Otherwise, they're at risk of iron-deficiency anemia."

But why do I end up with a different kind of iron??!!
