For Christmas this year I got just what I wanted. A new cordless drill for all of my DIY projects and a flip top vanity for my boudoir. I had been doing all of my primping sitting on the floor so this really felt like a monumental step into adulthood. I excitedly rushed home, assembled it, re-upholstered the seat to match my room and then sat down for my close up. Trouble was, the level of brightness in my room is perpetually set to romantic and I couldn't see what I was doing. The liquid eye liner disaster that ensued proved that this just would not do. I needed a solution.
A little online searching and an open mind and I figured it out: LED flex tape. I got mine from The Home Depot. It plugs in, has a sticky back and LED means it won't get so hot that I start sweating and all of my make-up melts off!
Installation seemed like it would be really easy, but the sticky wasn't that sticky and it's a little stiff to get around the corners. Nothing a little clear packing tape couldn't fix.
Now I can do all of my primping with less squinting, which means fewer wrinkles and more instances of being asked to show my ID. Heck yes!
