Selfies On A Stick

If you have been to a tourist attraction lately then you would of been exposed to the new age phenomenon of extreme selfie-takers. The ones that decide that an arms length is not enough and asking someone else to take a photo hinders the appearance of the photograph so they strap their phone onto a monopod (adapted from a tripod missing 2 legs – normally used to steady a camera) with a remote trigger. Le Boyfriend and I first stumbled across the now infamously named “selfie stick” while we were on holiday in Italy at the Coliseum in August. We laughed at the concept and people using them. Then we met up with the wedding party in Tuscany and we had the experience of using a friends Go Pro, with selfie stick included which resulted in some awesome group shots in a location where English is hardly spoken. Now the concept is laughing at us and we own our very own selfie stick…

Have we used it? Only as I took it out the box and immediately shared the pathetically candid shot on Instagram – but I am taking it with me on our upcoming travels and possible videos that need filming since my SLR does not support videos anymore – this is all a pipeline plan. It is a bit of an eye sore. You can appear to be a bit of a twit in public, so make sure to use your selfie stick wisely and not irresponsibly like this Buzz Feed article.

How does it work? For my phone which is an Android based phone you pair the phone to the selfie stick via Bluetooth, connect your phone into the cradle and push a button at the end of the stick. Quite idiot proof and easy. The selfie stick takes one hour to charge via USB cable and I am not sure how long the battery life lasts but I would imagine you could get a good couple of shots with it.

My friend Alice from Lipgloss Is My Drug brought her selfie stick to the G Star Raw ladies event last week and here we are pictured, believing in our selfies – if you will with Jamal from Woman Online Magazine.

You see, if you can’t beat them – then join them. Locally in South Africa you can shop for your selfie stick online at Selfie-Sticks.co.za for R399 for one or R700 for 2 in a variety of colours. Be sure to check out their Facebook page and hit the like button. Awesome quick and efficient service and I would recommend them to anyone looking for their very own selfie stick. Selfie-Stick Christmas Special

P.S. Perfect Christmas gift for a teenager (if you can deal with the influx of selfies).

Elegant Makeup Storage

When the time comes to looking at your makeup collection – if you’re like me you have a pretty impressive collection. Compromising of high end brands which make you proud to own but also happy to wear, the only problem is when you know you have that lip liner that matches your brand new plum lipstick; you can never find the damn thing amidst the hoards and hoards of other products because you are scrambling between 4 {mini}makeup bags and you just cant find the damn thing. Is all that makeup truly worthy of being slung into makeup bags and squished and mistreated. The answer is definitely not but I am guilty

I can really understand why the rise of the acrylic makeup displays have become so popular to overlook these issues which can be both frustrating, time consuming and end up with you scrambling to settling for a different colour, shade or product than what you initially dreamed up in your mind.

Sometimes the more simple a design, the more beautiful. Acrylic makeup displays simply look flawless, are easier to navigate than bags and I’m quite sure make all women woo and make “oooh” and “aaah” sounds when laying eyes upon them when they are filled with their favourite cosmetics and how gorgeous would these look as an addition to your dressing table? Tres chic.

The only drawbacks I can think of are that I would imagine that they would get dusty quickly and when you need to pack a makeup bag for travels – how would you go back to makeup bags when scooting around to not having the ease of getting your products out? I also have so much makeup I may need two – not just one. AAAH. I am possibly over thinking this; as you should just get one and get on with it but I am still not sure yet as I haven’t taken the plunge and got myself one, yet.

Local South African online store 27pinkx (pronounced 27 Pinks) has been promoting their sales for these beauties and they range from R350 per draw to the actual cube like storage boxes with draws from R1,200 to R1,800 including free delivery. To view their entire offering, check it out here.
