  • Say hello to the infamous selfie stick! You may see a lot of these around, but how do you take a killer selfie with it? Of course, the main purpose is to get all the right angles, and you can finally brush up on your selfie taking skills! Here are the 3 Ways to Take a Killer Selfie:

    1. Wide Group Selfies - Hooray to no more cropped images of friends, family, or co-workers. When taking a family trip, business trip, or just a day trip with your friends, we tend to ask a complete stranger to take photos for us. You want to include everyone in your photo, and maybe a little background, too, but sometimes things get cropped out because of your reach. An easier solution: the selfie stick! It's so easy to just pop your phone on and off, and capture these treasured moments. So, for your next group photo, have the selfie stick ready!

  • Say hello to the infamous selfie stick! You may see a lot of these around, but how do you take a killer selfie with it?

  • 2. 45 Degree Angle Selfies - Okay, maybe you never have taken this type of selfie before, but do have that one friend that does. She takes selfies from a 45 degree angle where she extends her arm out, and holds the camera phone 45 degrees above your face/head. Even a lot of models use this because it captures the perfect angle of their faces. Well, executing these shots have never been easier, and I don't know about you, but I have short arms, and the selfie stick allows me to extend as far as 7 1/4 inches up to 32 1/2 inches-fully extended. If the stick shows up in the photo at certain angles, you can easily crop, or photoshop it as well.

  • 3. Overhead (Lay Down) Selfies - Most of us have done this at one point, and it quite never works unless you're doing a close-up shot. With the selfie stick, you can extend up, and quickly snap. They'll come out much more flawless than usual. Also, keep in mind to find the right angle when taking these, too. It's not just the selfie stick itself, but you controlling each shot!

  • Not all couples have surprise engagements. In today's world, there are many women who prefer to dictate exactly what kind of engagement and wedding ring they want their beau to purchase for them.

    What's worse is that many women are catty. Some women blatantly tell their husbands-to-be that the only requirement they have for their wedding ring is that it's bigger than so-and-so's ring.

  • Do you suffer from wedding ring envy? See what type of woman you are when it comes to your engagement/wedding ring.

  • Most brides aren't even concerned about the quality of the diamond- size matters most and they're hoping to blind the entire sea of guests with their sparkling wedding ring. Not every bride cares about size and cost. Some care more about sentimental value.

    One bride was disappointed that her fiancé had proposed without yet buying her a wedding ring. He assumed she'd want to pick it out herself, and he was saving the money to do it right. But she told him that she'd be happy with a Cheerio on her finger.

    Then there are the women who demand that their wedding ring cost more than a car and be bigger than two carats. If not, they say, "don't even bother proposing." Which kind of woman are you?

    Let's clarify something. No one is saying you should be pleased with a piece of cereal on your ring finger. But there's more to your wedding ring selection than size. Some brides don't want diamonds, but if you do, make sure the quality of the diamond is adequate.

    Try on several options and ask about the possibility that you'll be allergic to the materials the wedding ring is made out of. It'd be a shame to wear your $10,000 Platinum band only to find it has a hint of nickel in it and it's giving you a rash!

    Try not to think of your wedding ring purchase as an "I want to outdo her ring" situation. There will always be someone who has a bigger, more sparkly diamond than yours. A wedding ring is a sentimental and financial investment you're making for your future. If the wedding ring is passed down as an heirloom to your children and grandchildren, you want them to know you and your groom spent your money wisely.

  • We are living in the selfie era, and no matter where you go, or what you do, a selfie is a must! Some of you may hate the whole idea of selfies in general, I know my hubby gets tired of me taking them! But as soon as I pulled out this cool little gadget, he took it over and played with it. Now we carry our selfie stick in the car for when we are out and about and want to take our photo together. It's a much more positive experience when I'm not chasing him down to get his photo.

    This seems to be the case for any camera shy person. I have a mom friend who tells me that she can never get her kids to smile for photos, let alone sit still long enough to even be in the photo. I told her about our selfie stick and showed her how to use it. She took it home and again, much like my husband, her kids were enamored with this "new toy". She gets plenty of photos now!

  • We are living in the selfie era, and no matter where you go, or what you do, selfie sticks are the answer to your prayers when it comes to taking photos.

  • It has become a common way of taking photos in Europe (they even have corner street vendors selling them) and it is picking up here in the States quite fast. Sometimes your arms just can't reach overhead to get a good group shot, and the selfie stick does the deed. Once the stick is out, your friends will be amazed with this cool device. I'm pretty sure they'll want one, too. I remember showing a few of my photographer friends, and they laughed at it of course, but once they pressed that button, they were hooked.

    So, you see why selfie sticks are the answer to your prayers? They are addicting to even the most camera shy kids, men, and friends. Imagine baby crying beforehand, and look at how still he will hold for you when he sees the selfie stick. It's now just more than just taking a photo. It's taking a photo with a gadget in hand. No matter how ridiculous you look, everyone just basically laughs it off. Why not? It's a global phenomenon that has become molded with this generation. Young or old, anyone can learn how to use one.

  • Selfie this, selfie that. The evolution of selfies have taken over for the past few years, and within a short time, the wave has grown larger with the infamous Selfie Stick.

    From tween to teens, and young adults, the wave has slowly reached the older generation as well. Parents, and grandparents have learned how to utilize this device and they aren't completely shy about it either, especially when rocking the selfie stick with their kids. So, why not join in on the fun, and be the cool parent you were meant to be with a selfie stick!

    Here's How To Save Memories of Your Kids:

    1.Let the Kids Take Over: Kids enjoy these cool gadgets, and if you let them take control, they are more likely to take photos with you instead of running away. Well, they might run away at some point to take their own photos, too. I know some of my friends with teenagers that go wild for these things, but wouldn't that be a change of pace? It's nice to know they enjoy time with you, and you're not totally boring.

  • 2.Road Trips: Having the selfie stick on board is a plus when documenting your road trips. Kids are totally into car selfies, and you can take several throughout your trip. They don't always have to be inside the car either. Once you've pulled over for a break, snap a quick one outside on the car! It's a great way in preserving your travels while tagging each other on social media.

See how easy it is - mother nature at its best!

  • 4. Sports: The extendable selfie can get amazing shots when your kids are out in the field. It can be almost comparable to a professional shot if you use it the right way. It's probably best to use it on the sidelines or lower level seating so you're not blocking the crowd. And be sure your arena allows them inside the venue. It's exceptional for outdoor sports like track, in which you can capture these amazing angles and back shots when your kid is preparing to run!

  • Every couple wants a perfect wedding-it's a once in a lifetime dream come true. Before that happens though, the reality reminds us that preparation is usually the most stressful for not only the bride and the groom but also the entire family. That is why for every couple who plans to wed, there ís one essential concept they should know-wedding tools.

    Wedding tools is a mechanism that alleviates stress, an inevitable part of the planning. It may come in various ways depending on the kind of wedding one wants to have. This may include wedding checklist, gowns, groom's needs, invitation, photography, and honeymoon.

  • Wedding tools is a mechanism that alleviates stress, an inevitable part of the planning.

  • Fundamental for any planning is the checklist. A wedding checklist is like note taking of important details. It is very useful for organization and reminder.

    The wedding checklist consists of specific items, date, time, and place. It ranges from all the needed materials like decorations, party rentals, food, events to be organized, music to be played, and so on. The checklist makes sure you will accomplish every little detail of the wedding. Apparently, this is not a once-seating feat. The list will surely lengthen as you go.

    The next tool is the gown. This is the most fantasized about in the entire event. For most women, choosing their gowns is as much vital as the wedding itself.

    Indeed, it is necessary for the gown to match the over-all tone of the wedding but this should not restrict the bride in fusing her own creativity and style. A heavy-beaded gown go with a formal cathedral wedding for example. On the other hand, a length-train gown does not fit a beach setting.

    The needs of the groom are also part of the excitement. Aside from the suit he will be wearing are the roles and expectations he should take during the wedding planning. For some ceremonies, grooms write their speeches. Sometimes, since the women mostly do the preparations on the rest of the wedding, the men plan the honeymoon.

    The wedding can only be as fun as one can imagine because of the witnesses. Vital, therefore, is the creation of the guest list. It serves two purposes-making sure significant people in your lives are present while at the same time keeping your budget. Space of the place is also a consideration in doing the wedding guest list. Be sure the people invited fit the space.

    Because photos immortalize moments, this is another important consideration in the planning. The photographer, preserving photos, and saving money are just some of the essential matters to be taken into account.

    Lastly, a honeymoon right after the wedding is planned way ahead. Honeymoons are part of the traditional wedding which has been modified as time passed by. Before, honeymoons were kept secret from the bride.

    Preparations might be a real pain but when the wedding runs the way you wished it would be, it is going to be a priceless satisfaction. Remember to have fun with it, and you'll be less stressed!
