Light in the Bathroom and a GIVEAWAY!

Guys…I have a confession to make. I have terrible eyesight. And by terrible…I mean I’m almost legally blind. Let’s just say that when I go to the eye doctor, and they tell you to read the lowest line on the chart..I can only ever kinda see the large “E” that is gigantic on the very top. Yep, it’s that bad. You wouldn’t know about my terrible eyesight, specifically because I wear contacts 99% of the time. But at night right before bedtime, I always throw on my glasses.

Nightstand-StylingI keep my glasses on my dresser right next to the bed, and I feel around to find them each morning or if I’m getting up in the middle of the night. If I don’t find them (which happens pretty often) then I do a slow shuffle to the bathroom with my arms out in front of me and I grope the wall to find the light switch. Not to mention, we have 1,000 pillows for our bed, all of which cover the floor and my path to said bathroom. Pretty dangerous way to start each morning, right?

Master-BathroomBut things got a little less dangerous around here…thanks to a cool new product I tried out. The company SnapPower contacted us about doing a review of their SnapRays Guidelights. Essentially they’re like nightlights…but the light is hardwired right into the outlet cover. At first, we were a little hesitant. I mean neither of us have kids, and automatically you kinda think night lights = children…right? But after chatting with the SnapPower team, and watching this video about the product, we knew we had to try out this product ourselves.

2-Snap-PowerHonestly, it’s pretty freakin’ sweet. It’s like a traditional outlet cover and it requires no wires or batteries. The cover plate is equipped with LEDs to provide light in the dark, while keeping both outlets open and available to use. The Guidelights also have a light sensor that automatically turns the lights on in the dark, and off in the light. No clapping necessary. You can order the colors (white, light almond, or ivory) and the style (duplex or decor) that your home needs. Since our apartment is super wonky, we needed both the circular and the square kinds.


The metal parts on the back (“power extractors”) snap around the electrical outlet receptacle (okay we just now realized why it’s called “SnapPower”…duh!), and touch the screws located on the sides of the outlet. Power is pulled from the outlet directly to the 3 LED lights…that’s how the lights go on!

It takes hardly any time to install. All you need is a screwdriver to take off your outlet cover and replace it with the Guidelight. I installed on in our master bathroom, and when the lights are on you have absolutely no idea that anything is different in here.  It looks and works just like my old outlet cover. Snap-Power-Outlet-CoverSnap-PowerDark-Bathroom-Snap-Power

But the moment you turn the lights off, those 3 little lights turn right on! It’s pretty amazing and provides a nice little glow in there. Lights-Off-Snap-Power-OnSnap-Power-Lights-OnI’ve been loving the addition of this light. I’m still blind without my glasses/contacts, but having a small light guide me in the darkness makes my mornings a little less dangerous. No more blindly trying to find the light switch on the bathroom wall for me!


Now the lovely team at SnapPower generously decided that they wanted our readers to get in on the Guidelight action! We’re giving away a 5 pack of Guidelights (a $70 retail value) right here on our site. Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter.
