The Selfie Stick


The latest and greatest phase is THE SELFIE STICK.  Honestly, I think this is a genius tool and is so fun  to use.  As a single mom it is often hard to get a family pic when we are at theme parks, museums, or just clowning around at home.  If I want a pic with my kids I have to ask a perfect stranger and that can be a very awkward situation or stand out of the pic and capture my adorable babies by themselves.  I think I could count on one hand how many pics I have actually been in with my kids this year…thanks to my sis for capturing some of those rare moments.

The selfie stick is incredibly easy to use.  Just mount your iPhone, plug in the selfie stick into the hole you would normally use for your headphones and snap away!  There is no battery to charge or Bluetooth connectivity and it works straight out of the box…I absolutely love this!

Selfie Stick – Lightest & Smallest [Battery Free] Monopod Fits in Pocket – New 2015 Design for iPhone and Android Phones (Black)

  • At only 7.3 inches (fully-retracted) & 4.5 oz., this retractable mini monopole is so small & lightweight it fits conveniently in your pocket, purse, shoulder bag or glove box so it’s always handy to use for great self-portrait photos.
    Versatile mono-pod is remote controlled using your smartphone’s ear bud jack, so there’s no need to rely on bluetooth connections or charging batteries.
    Easy setup – Plug ‘n play operation – No app required – Works right out of the box with any iPhone model (5, 5s, & 6) or Galaxy (s3, s4, s5 & s6) or other Android smartphone.
    Holder rotates 270 degrees so you can snap photos easily from a variety of angles without having to hold the mono pod in an awkward position.
    Extendable pole can snap photos from over 2 feet (28.3 in) away, making it perfect for fantastic large group or over-the-crowd shots in tight spaces. Non-slip handle & wrist strap lets you hold the pole securely while you snap your picture.

I received a complimentary selfie stick from the manufacturer in exchange for an honest review.

Defy the world while wearing these empowered tee’s!  They are super soft and made with a relaxed fit.    All of the ink used in the screen printing process is water based and environmentally friendly.  There is a definite vintage look to these beauties!  Very easy to care for.  Wash with like colors in cold water and dry with low heat or lie flat to dry.  I forgot about mine and tossed the shirts in the dryer and was ecstatic that they did not shrink.  Very high quality and the perfect fit!
