Mirror Mirror On The Wall...

This post was written in conjunction with Pebble Grey Bathrooms. All words and view are my own.

What do you see when you look in the mirror? Do you look in the mirror often? I must admit that as I get older I am a bit more aware of my imperfections. The laughter lines on my face, the cracks and crevices. They don't make me feel sad, I wrinkle up my face to see how the years of laughter have made these strange creases.

Sometimes, I'm looking in the mirror to do my make-up, and I think I am absolutely bonkers. My face is quite ruddy and I blush quite a bit. So I cover up my face and blushing with foundation. Then guess what I do? I put blusher on. Just in the places that I want to blush. It is very odd behaviour, I suppose!

Lately I have been looking at my body shape in the mirror. This too is changing. If you  have been following my blog you will know that I have started with Slimming World and I have lost almost ten pounds. My body is slowly changing and I have stated to see and feel a difference. Not much - but I am changing. The reflection that looks back at me is a different one from a few weeks ago. There is a little bit less of me, I suppose.

However, the mirror can't tell us everything can it. It can't tell us how we feel on the inside. I am a mother of three girls - proud of each of them. I am busy and a little stressed at times - I have dreams and hopes and fears - the mirror can tell us none of this. I prefer to take people as I find them - how they look is not all-important to me. It is just one side of them.

We are in the process of having our bathroom tiled - a complete overhaul. It has taken longer than expected with us working and being so busy. However, this weekend we are looking at just adding the finishing touches to the room. These bathroom cabinet mirrors by Pebble Grey are ideal. However, when the bathroom is complete, and the mirrors are up - my thoughts won't change - there is more than meets the eye from the reflection staring back at us.
