WHY IT’S COOL

Um, because these hacks are the solution to all your selfie problems.

HACK 1: SELFIES ARE A BEACH

beforeWhen you’re at the beach and you’re trying to get your face, the water and your abs in the shot, hack 1 is here to save the day.

Fold your, preferably dry, towel in half lengthways, then keep alternating sideways folds until it’s stacked like an accordion or looks a bit like a tall, skinny book. Fold open to the middle and lean your phone with the folds.

Set that self timer, or fire up the CamMe app and strike a pose.

 

HACK 2: BOTTLE IT UP

beforeOkay, you’re going for a bike ride down the most picturesque mountain in all the land and you need evidence that you were there. Hack 2 to the rescue.

Undo your ponytail, and use the hair tie to secure your phone to your water bottle.

Jump back on the bike, show your good side, and stare longingly out to the view ever so naturally.

 

HACK 3: STICK IT

beforeHack 3 is for all you picnickers out there. You’re eating strawberries and noodle salad at the park with your friends when the urge for a group selfie strikes.

Just stick a, well stick, into the ground and angle according to your needs.

Duckface and post that bad boy to Instagram.
