The mirror comes with a hook and holder, the mirror is light and easy to install, it does not fog up at all and is great to use, if it would keep the drops off too, it would be perfect.
My husband enjoys using it, we recommend it to anyone who is looking for a shower mirror.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

About the author:Ivan Lindsay, who has researched the history of stolen art over many years, deals in old master paintings and Russian Twentieth century art. His enthusiasm and knowledge of his subject is highly evident in this book, which aims to become one of the seminal works on the subject. In his new book, The History of Loot of Stolen art, Ivan Lindsay examines the subject of art theft, listing the major art thieves through history and what they stole and why. Alexander the Great campaigned out of necessity to avoid Macedonian bankruptcy, removing 1,500 tons of gold alone from the Treasuries of the Persian Empire at Susa and Sardis, whereas the Vikings found undefended English monasteries full of gold and silver too tempting to ignore. Ivan Lindsay is an art dealer specializing in European and Russian paintings. He was educated at Eton College and the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. After four years in the British Army in South East Asia, he worked in the City of London before becoming an art dealer. He writes and lectures on art and the art market and is currently a Contributing Editor at Spears Magazine.

Summer Book Crush: Book Boyfriends Are Here!
Monday, June 16, 2014
Available now!When her friend Julia needed help forming a revenge plan against her ex-boyfriend, Ava was happy to lend a hand. She never expected that in the course of making Liam pay, she'd be the one to fall hard. . .for the one person who was absolutely off-limits. Crushing on the guy who humiliated her best friend is definitely against the girl code. Besides, Ava has goals. Her life is all about graduating with honors and landing the perfect job. And Liam Bailey—sweet-talking, complicated son of a well-known local politician—isn't part of those plans. But Liam doesn't give up easily. And he doesn't intend to let their friends' opinions, his parents' disapproval or Ava's past get in the way of what he wants—Ava's heart.

Visit Tawdra at her website. . .
And sign up for her newsletter!Tawdra Kandle has been a writer since the invention of the pen. Her first published work appeared in Child's Life magazine when she was 13. After a brief, thirty-year hiatus, she published a young adult quartet, The King Series. More recently, she's released contemporary and paranormal romances in both the adult and New Adult genres. Tawdra lives in central Florida with her husband and children, of both skin and fur types. And yes, she has purple hair.
Interview with Tawdra kandle:
Q: Just Desserts is a sequel to Best Served Cold. Tell us how the story is set up.
A: Well. . .in Best Served Cold, Julia is seeking payback for the way her jerk of a (now ex) boyfriend treated her—particularly how he initiated their breakup. She’s trying to make him jealous by dating a series of guys, so that he will want her back and then she can ditch him. In the middle of that story, we learn that Liam, the dastardly ex, made a pass at Julia’s roommate and best friend, Ava. And in the epilogue to the first book, it seems that Ava may have more feelings on the situation than Julia had guessed. Just Desserts begins at the point that Liam came on to Ava—but this time, we see it from a different point of view. The story follows what happened after that, and the developing relationship between Ava and Liam.
Q: Was making a character most readers hated into an appealing male lead difficult?
A: It was a challenge. Liam was based on someone I knew a long time ago, and while writing Best Served Cold, it was easy to fall into the trap of making him a one-dimensional villain. Believe me, no one was more surprised than me when I realized there was something between Ava and Liam. I was a little bitter when I realized he might have some motivation for his actions. His story unfolded for me after I finished writing BSC, and the more I wrote him, the more I liked him. So the answer is. . .yes, it was hard, but I think Liam has grown into a someone swoon-worthy by the end of JD.
Q: The Perfect Dish Duo novels were your first books not set in Florida. Why did you choose New Jersey as a setting?
A: The King Series, The Posse, and parts of The Serendipity Duet were all set in Florida, which is where I live now. But when I began to write Best Served Cold, I realized it was taking place in a colder climate. I also realized that the story felt most comfortable being set in a college town very much like the one I lived near growing up. Part of my life was spent in a small town in South Jersey that was adjacent to Glassboro, home of Glassboro State College (which is now Rowan University). I could see Birch College there, and so that’s where it ended up. Ava’s hometown is closer to the shore, but again, it is a place very near and dear to my heart.
Q: You’ve written young adult and adult romance in addition to new adult. Which is your favorite? Why?
A: I really enjoy adult and new adult. There is a freedom that in those genres that I have embraced. Though I never say never, I don’t see myself writing young adult again. The King Series will always have a special place in my heart, and those characters may go on, but they will be in different genres.
Q: Do you plan any more books in this world, with these characters?
A: I haven’t planned any more, but I think there could be some more books set at Birch College. I’d like to see where Julia, Jesse, Liam and Ava go. . .and Giff and Jeff, too! Maybe Rachel the annoying freshman might even get her own book. Who can say?
Q: Do you listen to any special kind of music when you write?
A: It depends on the book. Each book has its own musical style: Best Served Cold had all revenge songs, and Just Desserts was all big band, particularly Frank Sinatra. The book I’m working on now is totally country music. So I get to listen to a wide range of tunes.
Q: So what are you working on now?
A: I’m writing The Last One, which is a new adult contemporary spin-off of my adult book The Posse. It’s Jude’s daughter Meghan’s story. I’m really enjoying it. Next after that is the first book in my adult paramystery series Recipe for Death; it’s called Death Fricassee. I’m so excited about those books!
-- Writing food?
Peanut M&Ms and chips with onion dip, accompanied by seltzer water with lemon and lime.
Depends on my mood, but mint chocolate chip ice cream is always welcome. Also chocolate chip cookies and milk.
--Summer or winter? Summer, although I like a little winter around Thanksgiving and Christmas.
--Beaches or mountains? Beaches. I don’t do heights or windy roads.
--Flats or heels? Flats, usually flip flops. I’m a Florida girl! Heels on special occasions.
--Reading now? I’m reading a new adult book by Chelsea Cameron called Sweet Surrending. I loved her book For Real, and I’m enjoying this one, too.

This is the much anticipated follow up novel to HER HONOR’S BODYGUARD. Since the reviews were great, and the fans were demanding more, it was a great novel to work on, including a trip to Zurich where the novel unfolds.
After centuries of religiously motivated war, the world has been split in two. Now the Blessed Lands are ruled by pure faith, while in the Republic, reason is the guiding light-two different realms, kept apart and at peace by a treaty and an ocean.
Children of the Republic, Helena and Jason were inseparable in their youth, until fate sent them down different paths. Grief and duty sidetracked Helena's plans, and Jason came to detest the hollowness of his ambitions.
