Magic Mirrors

My apologies for lack of blog posts last week, Occasionally real life gets in the way of blogging and last week was definitely one of those weeks.

But worry not, while I was away, I was people watching.................................

And frankly some people out there are just not worth watching.

But I have discovered an interesting thing.

I am not sure if they sell them in Ikea or not, but some women out there own a "Magic mirror" (Before you go all diva like, this is NOT a good thing)

These magic mirrors are evil, Women look in them and ask the mirror the question we all do in the morning.

Dear Mirror, Promise me I don't look like shit this morning........ please.

And that mirror looks them straight in the eyes and LIES.

It is the only explanation I can come up with. Whether it does it for sick kicks or to be kind (sick kicks seem to be the logical explanation) there are mirrors out there that are slipping under the radar and making a LOT of women look awful.

I have seen some horrible things over the last week. Back fat bumps where there really shouldn't be, thongs above the trouser line (I NEVER want to see another womans thong, thank you very much) and women wearing clothes that they should NEVER EVER EVER leave the house in. (PJs & Uggs? Why oh why?)

I blame the mirror.

Some of those mirrors have come straight from a shop changing room, you know the type, You try something on in the shop and it looks great, you get it home and realise you wouldn't even want to be buried in it.

Pesky mirrors.

The mirrors seem especially active on a Friday and Saturday night in various houses where women are going clubbing. How some of those women pass the mirror test I really don't know. I can only imagine that as they leave their house their mirror is cracking up (cracking up? geddit?) laughing at the carnage it has created.

Although I suppose we cannot lay all the blame on the mirror. Do some of these women not have friends? I know that if one of my friends came on a night out wearing something that made her look like an overstuffed sausage I would tell her (Obviously in a more tactful way....... maybe............possibly)

But surely it shouldn't get that far?

So next time you stand in front of the mirror, double-check that it came from a recognised retailer and not somewhere like Hogwarts (the only magic reference I could think of, sorry)

Because there are a lot of those magic mirrors around, and it seems that a lot of women don't even know they have them!!!!

Stay safe people and be alert for Magic mirror fall out, it's everywhere.

  1. I LOVE this! So true! Maybe we should start a magic mirror patrol, similar to that of the neighbourhood watch... xx

  2. I saw a woman at a garage cashpoint this weekend. She was wearing a pink dressing gown & slippers. It was lunchtime! No need, people!

  3. We have all seen those who've looked in the Magic MIrror! Oh dear I hope I've never used it! Great post x

  4. I saw a woman last week with an orange face, white neck, white ears, white chest, and wearing american tan tights with open-toed wedges. I despair, I really do.

    Then again, I went to do the grocery shopping once with PLUM eyebrows - used the wrong eye pencil and with the absence of my glasses, never noticed until I bumped into someone I knew in the shop who said "eh, your eyebrows are a bit mad looking today". MORTIFIED.

  5. Haha fab post hun! Missed you!! :)

    Aysh xoxo
