The Selfie Bag review
A few months ago, I was sent the Selfie Bag to try out and review. As you will know by now, I like to give things a proper go before I review them fully, and I like to also take my time to consider how I will show you a product or service. I never want to seem pushy to you, and I will never talk positively about something I don't like just because I got sent it for free. Your trust is integral!
I want to start off by saying that I really like the design of the bag. The black with the gold gives a modern face lift to the typical reusable cotton bag. The size is great, perfect for grabbing and using on the go, whether that be for shopping, days out or visiting the beach. It has an inside pocket, which is great for a few small items such as a lightweight purse etc. I say lightweight as the bag doesn't have a lot of structure obviously, so if you put something in the pocket that is heavy, it weighs down the one side and makes it kind of flop over - if that makes sense. With that said, it's a given with this type of bag, and I do like that it has a pocket as many don't. It means you can take this out shopping, but not have to take a separate bag for your keys or purse.
So what makes this a "selfie bag" I hear you ask. Firstly, it has a holder for a selfie stick, which is cool and different if you have one. I don't have one anymore, but it would be good for a tripod or something similar. I blog and vlog, so a designated, easy to grab space for something like that would come in handy for sure.
The other "selfie" aspect of this bag is the reflective screen inside. It is like a mirrored sheet which can be used to reflect light, and thus create the perfect ambiance for your selfie. When I tried this out, I don't think it made a huge difference to any pictures I took, but maybe given a different lighting set up, it could help, if you had some really bright lights that you wanted to evenly light you up, or only a little bit of light where you were wanting to spread it out a bit more.
Overall I like this bag, more for the bag part than the selfie part. I think it's a nifty little thing, and if the extra features work for you they are just an added bonus. I see myself using this mainly for picnics and beach days etc, where I need a good size "chuck it all in" sort of bag.
Bye for now,
