THE selfie stick!


I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend! 

This weekend was a little "farewell" to our last free Saturday's. We'll be starting soccer season with M soon so soccer games will take up most, if not all, of our Saturday mornings and/or afternoons. Yes, I am that soccer mom. I love it though...wouldn't have it any other way! 

We decided to go on a little camping weekend with friends. Oh what fun we had! Many memories made and stories to tell.

I always try to take as many pictures as I can when we go on trips. Photos are such a great way to reminisce on memories and have a few laughs remembering great times we had. Of course, we don't always travel with others so there are many times we have to ask random people to take our picture. The Hubs hates when I ask others to do that. I get it, why bother others to take our picture. That's where a selfie stick comes into play! 

I've been on the hunt for THE selfie stick for our family trips...and I think I've found it! The Selfiesteem Selfie Stick with LED Light is great for photos! 

Pros: 
Size: it's super compact! It's 5.5 inches when it's folded...which makes it great for carrying in a backpack and small enough to fit in a purse when going out. It extends to 29.5 inches for the perfect selfie pictures! 
Storage: comes with a small black drawstring bag for easy storage. 
LED light: it comes with LED lights for dim/night photos! This is exactly what I was looking for in a selfie stick. The LED lights have 3 light settings and an autoflash option. 
Audio Jack: comes with an audio jack rather than bluetooth pairing. In my opinion this is better than bluetooth. No need to pair it to your phone and have to worry about connectivity. 

Cons:
Directions: could be nicer. They come in a printed piece of paper. Easy to read though just not very 'professional' looking. 
Charging Cord: the cord it comes with doesn't work. At least mine didn't. It's also very small. It's charges with a micro usb cord so it's easy to purchase one that works. We have a bunch laying around from other devices and they charged it with no issue.

All in all, I really like this selfie stick. I think it will definitely come in handy when we are traveling on our own or out with a group of friends. Great for day and night time selfies. Check it out for yourself and let me know if you end up purchasing-definitely a great buy!
