A few days ago my boss told me we were going to get Selfie Sticks in on a trial... I'm not really one for the selfie trend so I was a little bit cautious over getting them in. Well they arrived today complete with a bluetooth remote and I've not put it down all day!
Wondering what a selfie stick is? It's a extendable stick/monopod that you can attach to your mobile phone, which enables you to take selfie's from wider angles allowing to get a whole group of friends in to! :)
We were asked to test it and take some promo silly shots with it, and its been the funniest day of work so far! Here's a few from inside work...
We may have switched into dresses from work for the promo shots...
My dress you can see here: Bloom Black Floral Skater Dress
Jess's dress is here: Trixy Aztec Swing Dress
And my biker jacket is part of coming soon Autumn/Winter collection!
Oh and yes my leg is wrapped up in a leg splint, I have a dodgy knee thanks to a fall at my last job, on crutches at the moment, not fun!
This last one has gone up on our companies twitter haha.
The selfie stick is really easy to use, it packs down great to fit in your hand bag and I cen't help but think it would be fab for my holiday in September, no more accidents with cameras falling in the pool when your trying to get a group shot.
During the day we took it everywhere, we wanted to try and find its flaws so we knew what feedback to expect, it came to the wholesalers and B&Q. Take a look...
You'd think the amount we used it throughout the day, we would have found an issue, but the only one we've found is that the remote is not compatible with Snapchat, which is a little bit of a pain because I do love Snapchat.
However for a holiday or even just a day out I could still see it being quite a practical little gadget. You can take photographs of yourself with your partner including more of a landscape or landmark. It could be used to get a better angle on a stunning view. Or you could just use it like us and have a bit of a laugh with your friends :)
When we got back into work we had a lovely cake delivered to celebrate us reaching 5000 page likes on facebook, it was soooooo yummy! Although after one slice I did feel a little sick haha.
And we obviously then had to use the stick to take photos with the cake :)
And pull stupid faces.... hehe
If you want to buy your own stick and have some fun you can get it here: Missy Empire Selfie Stick
So yeah, eating cake and having a laugh made it such a hard day at work today! Haha. In all seriousness though we did get our daily duties done to we just had more fun doing it :)
well I know it's not like my usual post but I hope you enjoyed it and laughed at our silliness :)
