Clock Safe Review

I received the clock safe from Mitaki as a sample to review.

I thought the Mitaki Clock Safe was a really neat product and wanted to check it out. I had not seen one like this before so I was intrigued.This Clock takes one AA battery. Which is not included. The clock measures 9.75" dia. x 2.5" so it is one of those standard looking clocks that you see just about everywhere. In offices and classrooms. It has a 2" compartment on the backside so some people say to cut a hole in your wall but I don't think that is necessary. I think you could mount this and not have to worry that someone thinks its a safe. 

So you are probably wondering what all can you put in here. You can keep your money, meds or other valuables. Even jewelry. To me this makes perfect sense for someone who has roommates or a lot of people over and you need to just keep something safe just in case. You don't even necessarily have to mount this somewhere that is easily seen. Mount it in the garage or in your storage room where someone might not even see it. There is all kinds of weird possibilities that you could put this clock. Or keep an extra key in it for whatever. I think its nice to have an option to stash something. Plus its just a regular silver and white faced clock. It is so undercover it just blends in to the room in a very boring way. This is a plus of course.

Onto quality. While the design is really a cool idea the clock is made of a thinner plastic. The hinge is the only thing that keeps the two parts together and I do wish this was reinforced with a thicker plastic. But as long as it isn't handled repeatedly or roughly it should be ok.  This would be a good gift for someone who is into spies and covert things. 

Onto Cost. The cost for a gift thats under $20 Bucks is pretty good. Right now its listed under $15. Not a bad cost for something that could be fun or useful depending on how you choose to use it.

Mirrorvana Rectangular Makeup Mirror – 9.8″ x 7″

So excited to receive this Mirrorvana Vanity Makeup Mirror to sample and post an  honest review about it.

When I was a little girl my mom used to use this vanity mirror in her bedroom. I used to watch her do her makeup and her hair. I always wanted one. This vanity mirror from Mirrorvana is gorgeous. It reminds me of an older time when hair was done differently. So in one way it seems retro but in another it looks modern. It really depends on what decor you have and because its all mirror or chrome finish it will fit in anywhere. 

Mirrorvana Mirror

This vanity makeup mirror is divine to look at. It is a rectangle at 9.8" x 7" and comes with a chrome base. The look is super sleak and goes with any decor modern or retro. It comes in two parts and you just screw the base into the mirror and you are done.

It is shipped really well and it does come in a box with the Mirrorvana logo on it so you can wrap it for gift giving or use it to store if you are moving. Keep the box if you think you might because it fits right in there.

 There is a little stick at the bottom. You use this to angle and adjust the mirror without having to touch the mirror itself. That way you don't leave fingerprints all over it that you have to wipe off later. Really nice touch. If you don't have a vanity put it in your bathroom or bedside table. The base is weighted so the mirror isn't top heavy. So you don't have to worry about it tipping over.

Here you can see the mirror can completely flip the other way upside down. It also moves left and right. So you can angle this however you wish. You can also see the little stick that you move it with so you don't get your mirror dirty. 

You can view you entire face and neck in the mirror so you don't have to hold a little compact and try to do your makeup anymore or lean into the bathroom sink to get close to the mirror. If you sit back from the mirror you can easily use this to style your hair if you are in a space that doesn't have a mirror.
Honestly I love it and it looks amazing. I think any lady young or old would love to have this mirror in their room. The edges of the mirror are angled and this adds a nice touch to the mirror.

Did you have any fun memories of your mom or anyone else with vanity mirrors? I'd love to hear it feel free to share with me below.
