But First Let Me Take a Selfie….With My New Selfie Stick

Selfie Sticks. Some people love ’em and some people hate them. Since they have really started popping up last year, it seems they’ve been the topic of huge controversy. The fact of the matter, folks, is that selfies are here to stay and whether you like them or not, Selfie Sticks have made the process of taking them much easier.

As a blogger, I take a lot of pictures and depending on the situation, I take many of them with my phone. There have been many times where I have tried to take a selfie with my whole family and we just didn’t all quite fit. I figured there had to be an easier way, right? So, I finally jumped on the Selfie Stick bandwagon and BOOM! That was the solution.

The folks at SelfieGeeks were kind enough to send me a Selfie Stick and I am totally addicted to that thing. Now that I have it, I have no clue how I ever got by without one.

The Selfie Sticks come in Blue, Black or Pink and since I will always choose pink if it’s an option, that’s what I went with.

The setup is really easy. Honestly, it hardly took any time at all. All you have to do is attach your phone, adjust it to the angle you want, attach the cord to the audio port on your phone and press the button on the handle of the Selfie Stick. It’s super easy.

There is an adjustable mounting area on the side, which allows you to be able to point your phone in the angle you want once it’s attached.

My favorite feature is that you don’t need to set the timer on your phone when you use this Selfie Stick. There is a handy dandy button which is found right on the handle that will take your selfie with one press. So you just have set the pole to the distance you want and press the button. There is no reaching or having to snap the picture with a remote in your other hand.

It’s that simple.

These Selfie Sticks are made for iPhones or Androids and if you travel a lot, you need to invest in one of these. They make life so much easier! The Selfie Stick extends 3.6 feet so that you can fit a lot more into your photo than ever before!

    That is so ratchet. But who goes out on Mondays.

  2. Liz Mays

    The kids take so many selfies, don’t they? I love the pink on this one too!

  3. yumeating

    I can’t decide! I just don’t know if I would carry it around. I don’t even like to carry around my dslr half the time.

  4. Liz Mays

    I have a selfie stick and haven’t ever used it. What’s my problem?

  5. Michele

    This is a great idea for all those who take selfies! I never could figure out how to take one being I’m usually alone and my cat can’t take pictures.

  6. Mama to 5 BLessings

    I am not good at taking them either, I normally wind up taking a botched up job!

  7. Alissa Apel

    That’s so handy! I love the color of it to. *BTW I thought about that with the cost of the car – just getting a new one. It was a toss up in my mind for sure.

  8. Shabby Chic Boho (@terrishutterbug)

    What a cool Selfie Sticks. I need to tell my daughter about this as she’s always trying to take selfies from her cell but they turn out blurred. Thanks so much for sharing.

  9. growingupmomma

    Pink is always my first choice, too. These things are all over the city, it seems that it’s definitely a must-have for touristers!

  10. My Journey With Candida

    Me too… I love pink. With a color like that, you will never lose track of it.

  11. Carol Cassara (@ccassara)

    This would be just one more thing I would lose. Like an umbrella.

  12. Pam

    I’m so bad about losing things like this. I would lose my head if it weren’t attached to me.

  13. Michelle F.

    This would be perfect for when my husband, daughter and I want to take a family picture together. Love how easy it is to use.

  14. SixFeetUnderBlog

    That would be great for our family. The kids would love it.

  15. Sharon Erickson (@sharonme86)

    I don’t know why, but I always laugh when I see a selfie stick. However, it’s so useful and I would use one to get pics of my whole family! LOL It doesn’t hurt that this is pink…

  16. Ourfamilyworld (@OurFamilyWorld)

    I find it is a nice tool to have. It can be useful if you are selfie fan

  17. Kimberly Bergeron

    I’m not much of a selfie selfie, LOL…but I think it would be good for a group photo. I think this is something my daughter would like, that’s for sure. She IS a selfie selfie!!!!

  18. Joyce Duboise

    Okay this selfie stick is WAY cooler than mine because yours is bright pink and has a button lol. I love selfie sticks and you are right, selfies are here to stay. They are really good for taking pics of a group!

  19. SexyMoxieMama

    I totally need one of these! Thanks for sharing.

  20. Jamie (TigerStrypes) (@satrntgr)

    I see people using these like crazy now!! I’m not one to take selfies, but it would be fun to use over someone’s wall!! ha/ha JUST KIDDING!!

  21. Lubna Naz

    This is amazing, I dint know it was exist! Glad to know and will have it soon too. Thanks

  22. Stephanie Pass

    We found a selfie stick at the dollar store a couple months ago. My kids love it. I kinda love it, too, but not for taking selfies, lol.

  23. Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle

    A selfie stick, eh? I love the quality of the picture angles, but with this new stick, will we loose the old school bad lighting/weird angle selfies that we all know and love? =D

  24. Terry My Journey With Candida

    That’s a nice selfie stick. I have one, but the quality isn’t there. It is just a cheapie little thing. I want yours!!

  25. msposh2013

    I got one of those for everyone during the holidays. They are fun!

  26. Tea

    I will never understand this selfie stick-I’m not a fan!

  27. Britney Mills (@princesscowboys)

    I’ve seen these and I guess it is good for some. I wouldn’t want to carry it around.

  28. Heather

    I don’t mind selfie sticks. I think it makes the pictures look so much better and then you don’t have selfie arm in your photos. But what drives me nuts are the kinds of selfies people take, not just the selfie itself. Its the one where you are smiling from your best side and you’ve posted 12 other pictures of yourself from the same angle with the same selfie arm. For me its like how can you be that self absorbed? But with that said I jumped on the selfie stick bandwagon when I was in Vegas and I wanted to take a picture with my kiddos and myself at the Wax Musuem. That selfie stick sure came in handy then!

  29. Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle

    I agree. I think it should be a law that the first selfie you take is the one you use. It’s a selfie, not a mini-photo shoot. At least to me.

  30. Lisa Bristol

    My daughter wants a selfie stick. I do like the angle of the photos you get using it. I will have to get her one for her birthday.

  31. Chubskulit Rose

    What a great tool for those who love to take selfies. I seldom take selfies but I would like to have one of these.

  32. Michelle Varga (@dustbunniesblog)

    I’ve heard lots of things about these and I could definitely see how they’d be useful! I could see myself using this for some of my instagram shots – no just selfies but I could try out some cool alternative views with this!

  33. Cara (@StylishGeek)

    I got a Selfie Stick during last Christmas’ White Elephant gift exchange. Truthfully I haven’t used it yet.

  34. Roz K. Walker

    That Selfie Stick would definitely make selfies easier. I just don’t plan selfies, so it would be my luck that I left the stick at home.

  35. Laura (Another Cent Saved)

    I really need to get out more. I have never heard of a Selfie Stick. My girls however would love this. Thanks for sharing.

  36. Nina Say

    Selfie sticks are so funny! I’m so glad you did this review.

  37. Cia | CiaSays.com

    OMGOMGOMGOMG I have never seen a pink selfie stick. My sister got one for Christmas and I was green with envy since I am selfie obsessed. Since then, I have owned about 4 of them but none have been pink. LOVE it!

  38. Rorybore

    I would definitely use it if it allowed me to take a great photograph. selfie or otherwise. I mean seriously, I use a tripod with my regular camera when it’s required — and I see no difference here. you use whatever equipment helps you get the shot.

  39. Ruth Zankich

    I love my selfie stick. Without it I can’t take a group family picture.

  40. Angela Christoper

    ow, my hubby would love this, he really love to selfie with me of course, I love your selfie stick for my hubby.

  41. Jeanine

    Ahhhhhhh how fun! I haven’t ever used a selfie but I would love one! Especially for this summer how fun. I know my oldest wants one too ha! My question is – I have to press a button to actually take a photo how does that work if it’s on a stick?

  42. Natalie Z

    I can never seem to take a good selfie. I normally have my tall husband hold the phone/camera when we do selfies. Maybe I need to try one of these!

  43. Mama to 5 BLessings

    I really stink at taking selfies, they ways turn out awful. This looks like a great resource for bloggers.

  44. Joyce

    I know these things are quite popular and people love them; but, I see them as a negative message about society and what we are about.http://joycelansky.blogspot.com/2015/04/ww-passover-plagues.html

  45. Hope

    This is definitely something I could see myself using!

  46. Nancy

    I need a selfie stick that actually works! I received one in a goodie bag and it doesn’t have a clicker button thing!

  47. lisa @bitesforbabies

    I think I might be the only person alive who cannot take a decent selfie, lol! Maybe this would help??

  48. maggiesblog2

    Since I don’t have a cell phone I wish they would make a selfie stick for an iPad. I know I would look silly carrying a huge iPad on a selfie stick but I don’t care…these things are so awesome!

  49. rochkirstin

    I received a selfie stick as a prize from a contest. It’s also a pink one and we used to carry it around when traveling.

  50. kmstayathomelife

    I keep seeing these but haven’t tried one yet.

  51. Christina Aliperti

    I’m not a huge selfie taker but my son is lol. Him and his friends are constantly taking selfies, they would love this.

  52. The Foodie Affair

    I don’t take many selfies, but I can totally see the need for a selfie stick. I saw someone use one at the beach! This pink one is cuter than what I saw!

  53. [email protected]

    I don’t have an android phone or iphone. But I think selfie sticks are so fun.

  54. Vidya Sudarsan (@IDP_Vidya)

    This selfie stick looks amazing. I don’t have one, and our selfies so far has been looking terrible! I think this is a good investment.

  55. asbestrecipes

    very nice gadget I got mine few months ago it is a so much fun to use it =)

  56. upliftingfam

    I would love to have one of these gadgets. My husband shoots more videos than I do and needs a solution. I think the selfie stick would help solve his problem.

  57. Theresa

    We saw a ton of people using these last year when we were in Orlando. I admit, I wish I would have had one too so we could have taken more family photos together on that trip.

  58. Jillian Fisher

    My husband just bought us one and it is so cool!!

  59. Rebecca Swenor

    These can really come in handy on a vacation when you want to take a selfie and no one is around to take it for you etc. I will have to share this with my nieces who love to take selfies. Thanks for sharing.

  60. candyolivares

    I have to say I love my selfie stick! It’s really quite useful!

  61. Dawn McAlexander

    I have seen a lot of these lately. Especially with GoPros. And since we are thinking of buying a GoPro ourselves here soon, I will probably need a selfie stick!

  62. Fi Ní Neachtáin

    Awh I’m jealous, at first I didn’t get the selfie stick thing at all but now everyone has one and I want one. It’d be great to have one when traveling.

  63. roselynn787

    I saw this at the store over the weekend and just about laughed myself silly. Oh the things we’ll use and do for a good selfie.

  64. swell conditions

    Oh, I was wondering how it clicked the photo! Thanks for letting me know about the selfie stick, it sounds like a lot of fun!

  65. Rachée Fagg (@sayitrahshay)

    My daughter would love this. Heck, so would I! I love selfies and this would help me take more of them.

  66. Jessica Beal Harlow

    I haven’t used a selfie stick yet, but they sound like a great solution to some of those selfie perfect poses that need a little more distance. I love that it has the button right on the handle instead of awkwardly reaching up to click the photo!

  67. ascendingbutterfly

    I am the only blogger who avoids being in photos. I hate the ‘step and repeat’ and definitely don’t take selfies, but everyone who does like taking them really do swear by these things! This one does look super easy to set up which is good I hate fussing with stuff!

  68. milenabarrett

    I saw a group of ladies with one. They looked like they were having fun.

  69. Ricci

    I want a selfie stick sooo bad!! You may have just convinced me to get one!!

  70. becca112971

    I think selfie sticks are cool but son not so much. He doesn’t understand why people are obsessed with taking pictures of them self.

  71. Kristen from The Road to Domestication

    So…WHERE exactly is your actual SELFIE with the stick? I wanna see! LOL

  72. Aimee Fauci

    This would be a huge hit in my house full of girls! Huge help for those with shorter arms.

  73. livingoffloveandcoffee

    I would so buy this for my best friend’s birthday. She is a selfie queen lol.

  74. Jennifer

    That’s so cool! No more weird angles and arms all up in the picture.

  75. Jhoveleen

    I seldom take selfie, but having this tool could make the task easier though. Hmmm… I think I need one.

  76. Aisha Kristine Chong

    As a person who tends to do selfies all the time – I really should have this with me LOL!

  77. Layne

    Great idea to have one for Family trips!

  78. Erinn S

    These look great. Have never tried one, but great for travel! http://www.parentinghealthy.com/

  79. Anne | HealthySouthernMama.com

    I hate selfies! But mostly because I can’t seem to take a good one. lol I think a selfie stick might help because I feel like too close is not as flattering!!

  80. Dawn McAlexander

    Yeah, and those arms extended in the picture looks plain funny. You can tell it’s obviously a selfie lol!

  81. Ourfamilyworld (@OurFamilyWorld)

    I love those selfie sticks. I saw them in some conventions and wanted to try them.

  82. tammi

    This would have come in handy when we were on vacay last month. It was really hard trying to fit us all in a selfie!

  83. Mama to 5 BLessings

    What a really neat gadget. Perfect for traveling with !

  84. Allie D.

    This would come in handy when my friends and family all group together to take group selfie picture. Then no one would be cut out of the photo.

  85. rane25

    I must admit … if it wasn’t for Blogging I would ever have gotten one of these. Its a useful gadget for people who work in Digital Media

  86. Brett

    Okay, I love this! I’ve wanted a selfie stick for a while now. This would be awesome for big group pictures.

  87. Kristin

    I got one for Christmas! I need to break out that bad boy!

  88. yumeating

    I keep looking at these sticks and wonder if I would really use it. It’s just so in-your-face! Sometimes I feel awkward with my dslr. I just hate to draw attention to myself. I have gotten really self conscious these last few years.

  89. Alice Chase

    I have been meaning to get one of these forever… I keep saying “it’s on the list” I going to order one today.

  90. maria @ close to home

    I have seen a few people with these. I guess it is something I could get used to carrying around

  91. Pam

    I don’t really do selfies. But I could see my daughter having one of these!

  92. trala2 (@trala2)

    Do not like to take photos but my girls would love this!

  93. Cassie @ Southeast by Midwest

    I really need to buy a selfie stick to help with vlogging and stuff. I love that this one comes in pink!

  94. Pam

    This seems like a quality product. Some of them seem or look like they really don’t work well.

  95. martinkadelux

    Oh my! The selfie stick sure is getting around! I love the idea- makes family photos much more feasible!

  96. katrinagehman

    I got one and love it so much. seems silly at first but so cool

  97. Holly @ Woman Tribune

    I have been told that I have a unique perspective when it comes to selfies. I love them.I take them and I want as many women out there as possible to take them, too. I think selfies are a radical expression of self-love and appreciation for one’s self. I just don’t understand how anyone can think, “Oh she thought she looked cute/beautiful/sexy/awesome today and just HAD to take a picture? Why? I don’t want to see that!” It makes no sense to me. And now I want a selfie stick.

  98. Brittany @ Clumps of Mascara

    How fun! I’ve seen these on advertisements and all but haven’t really seen one close up! Would love to get one. Pink is pretty!

  99. Carol Bryant

    I want a selfie stick and was not sure which was the best to get so thanks for this!

  100. toughcookiemommy

    I need to invest in a selfie stick. It is getting really hard to get just the right angle and lighting without it.

  101. Jennifer Evers

    I just sprung for a selfie stick and I am completely obsessed with it. It’s cool that yours came in different colors – mine is only black!

  102. Amber NElson

    I am not a selfie person, but I guess this would work for those looking to get that perfect selfie.

  103. Marcie W.

    The topic of selfie sticks came up in conversation at an event I attended today. We all agreed that they are a great idea and totally practical, but a bit embarrassing to use.

  104. Dee Mauser

    I’m not big on taking selfies but my adult kids are. They’re constantly in the bathroom mirror doing the duck face with their cellphones. LOL

  105. Digna

    Not a big selfie fan but my kids would love this. Thank you for sharing!!!

  106. Myrah Duque

    I am obsessed with mine! Such a big help…hat did we do without them before??

  107. April G

    I so want a selfie stick. I think a lot of my photos will look a lot better, and my arm doesn’t look super weird.

  108. eliz frank

    I couldn’t stop laughing reading this. I was hoping to see a selfie family pick too. Thank God you stopped with the stick. Oye!

  109. Kiwi

    I actually have a selfie stick and I havent used it yet! I need to take it out the box and use it!

  110. Travel Blogger

    I can see why some people hate them but like with everything, if people are respectful about it I enjoy using them and think they have great value.

  111. crystal

    I don’t know where I fall on the selfie stick debate. It can be tricky getting pictures of myself when I’m the only adult home during the day. I need to check this out.

  112. Christina

    You know, I used to think these things were so silly, but honestly, I think as a blogger they would be a great tool to have!

  113. aordinarylife

    love the idea but not really sure if id like to Carrie a stick all the time.

  114. Dawn

    My daughter loves that song! I like how your selfie stick is pink!

  115. Jenny Temcio

    I have been wanting a selfie stick for a long time! What a fun way to take pictures.

  116. Sarah Marturano

    NOt gonna lie, I could totally use a selfie stick! I think they’re soo neat.

  117. Lisa Rios

    This pink selfie stick is a wonderful idea for selfie lovers. My husband loves to take selfies a lot. I am sure he would really love this. Will have to check this out & give him this as a surprise gift.

  118. Janeane Davis

    I am an anomolyaad a blogger. I do not take selfies and do no use the camera on my phone for work.

  119. Aubrey

    The first time I saw a selfie stick was at Disneyland this past winter. I had no idea what they were at first and thought they were weird. But after seeig them in action, I think they are a great invention. Gets everyone in the picture without leaving anyone out to take the picture.

  120. Christie

    Wow, it’s so pink! Definitely a fun device holder for bloggers

  121. the pinterested parent

    I have to admit. I laughed my butt of when I saw these the first time, but I have seen people use them to take family pictures on vacation and I guess it makes sense.

  122. Heather

    I saw so many people with selfie sticks when i was on vacation in europe – i really should of gotten one!

  123. irishred13

    I really hate the selfie sticks. I know they give new angles on pictures but when someone is bumping into you with one it’s not fun. I know you won’t be that jerk though!

  124. Ann BAcciaglia

    I really want a selfie stick as I know that it would help me take better photos. I take a lot of photos with my phone and this device would certainly help!

  125. Amy Desrosiers

    This would really come in handy for all the skincare selfies I will be needing to take very soon! I love the color you chose too!

  126. [email protected]

    I haven’t taken many selfies. I have a co-worker that is the selfie queen.

  127. [email protected]

    I have a few friends who could definitely use this since they are always taking selfies.

  128. Yona Williams

    I would love a selfie stick. I wouldn’t use it out in public because I’d personally feel ridiculous, but it would really come in handy when I need to take a picture of myself for reviews (when I’m at home). It would save so much time getting it right the first time around.

  129. Krystal's Kitsch

    I am debating about getting one. They are SO handy for blog stuff even if they look crazy! LOL

  130. Stefani Tolson

    Since I love taking pictures I want one of these. I love that yours is pink!

  131. Marina John

    This is awesome! I need to invest in a selfie stick!

  132. paula

    Hello!! I love these things. I have had one for several months and they are fun to play with. I am reminded now that I need to get a battery for mine.

  133. mmgmom

    I love my selfie stick. Of course I have to fight my teenagers to use it.

  134. Peachy @ The Peach Kitchen

    Selfie stick are a must nowadays to make sure nobody gets left out in the photo. I also have mine in pink.

  135. alexisakamom0616

    LOL my mom bought me one for Christmas it’s some where around here .. lol

  136. Paula Schuck

    These look like so much fun! Dying to get my hands on one of these!

  137. Jocelyn McGaffic

    I have wondered if it would be good to have one of these as a blogger, but I don’t think I would use it for every day use. They do seem pretty handy!

  138. Shannon Gurnee

    I’ve never had a selfie stick before, but always wanted one! Sounds like a good one!

  139. Caitlin

    Oh this looks awesome! I feel like I might need one!

  140. Debbie Denny

    This sounds fabulous. My granddaughter would love it
