I Need a Mirror Lie Detector Test!

Sunday, August 30, 2009

Hi my sweet little Sparklers...

I'm just wondering about the manufacturing of mirrors... LOL... I mean, is there like a recipe for all mirror making or is each mirror making company like a grandma that just throws a pie together?

Here's the deal I have 3 mirrors in my house... well, that I seem to routinely see myself in. The first is in my bedroom attached to my dresser, and it's wide, thus it makes me look wide (hate that mirror). The second is long and narrow in the hallway... it makes me look sort of long and narrow (my favorite, I might add)... the third is divided into 3 doors on the medicine cabinet... and well, if I arrange them just right... ohhhhh yessss, it quickly becomes the mirror I could French kiss (no I haven't, YET).

Anyway, unfortunately, it turns out that for some sick reason I want to know the truth, that is, which mirror is lying to me? Is there no such thing as a truthful mirror? There needs to be a test.
I'm not saying I'd keep or even remotely use the honest mirror, but at least (depending on my mood, and mental stability) I could choose to embrace either the truth or the lie on my own terms... you know, like I seem to do with everything else in life.

And, ughhhhh, don't even get me started on the mirror I looked into at Target... that one tried to tell me I'm getting age spots on my cheeks... hmmmm, is that so I'll runout and fill my cart up with concealer and foundation??? Makes a person wonder doesn't it?

Love YOU!

    I am here to help solve this riddle. LOL

    First, the lighting above the Mirror or the room it is in .....makes a big difference in clarity. That's why when we put our make up on in the bedroom dim light and think we look fine till we look in a mirror where there is bright lights then we look like a clown. LOL

    Next I want to tell you my theory of your bedroom mirror vs your long mirror. When you look in the long mirror, you are looking at the full package . You are more pleased with that mirror because you are probably like me.....A apple but have nice legs. LOL The shorter mirror zero's in on your trouble spots. Your waist and abs.

    Therefore, all ways put your make up on in the brightest room. If you want to know the truth ....study your face in that mirror. If the truth is too hard to take look in a mirror that is in a room with dimmer lights. Avoid looking in the bedroom mirror that zeros in on your trouble spots and admire your whole package that shows you are more than your waist. LOL

    Hope you have a great week! Joy

    Hello, Beautiful!

    I know nothing about the manufacture of mirrors (and I apparently have the same three mirrors in my house!), but I do know without a doubt that the mirrors you should trust most are those illuminated by your actions, those of your own heart, and those in the eyes of the people who love you and hold you dear.

    May your every day be all you need it to be. May an all abiding peace fill your thoughts, rule in your dreams each night, and conquer all your fears. May God manifest himself in ways you have never before experienced. May your joys be fulfilled, your dreams be closer, and your cares be lifted. I pray that faith enters a new height in you, that your territory be enlarged, and that fulfillment is just one step closer.
