Daylight Lamp review and a give away

A lot of you know I work full time so tend to do my crafting at night.  A few years ago that was a doddle, but as this old lady is getting older (shhh) I am finding it more and more difficult to do close work at night.  I already have a Swan Table Lamp that is in constant use, even during the day but jumped at the opportunity to review the MAG Lamp.  And …. it’s the Best. Lamp. Ever.  No joke!  How I ever managed to colour without it I don’t know.  
The photos are taken at night which is when the lamp is most in use, and yes my trusty Swan Lamp is also in use in the background.

Only one teeny tiny problem …. the magnification is just that good it shows up all the imperfections ha!  Joking aside, this lamp is fabulous.  Comparing the magnified part of the marker to the end sticking out the side you can easily see just how brilliant the magnification is. 
I love that I can push the lamp out of the way when it’s not in use, yet because of the flexible arm I can manoeuvre this baby to the exact spot that I need it.  The diameter of the lamp head casing is 8” so it’s not that big that it gets in the way when I’m colouring.

The glass area (5”) is just the perfect size too, I can easily see what I am doing when colouring even with my hand in the way

And job’s a good’un.  The finished image coloured with markers and pencils.

This giveaway is now closed
And as a reward for bearing with me, if you would like to be in the draw for this little Yo-Yo LED lamp with magnification (perfect for your crafting away days) leave a comment and I will draw a winner during the week. I will post this worldwide so this is open to all.
Please note the lamp that I am giving away is NOT the lamp that I have reviewed.
