    “occasional selfies are acceptable, but posting a new picture of yourself everyday isn’t necessary”
    ________________________________________________
    Dictionary.com never fails with their descriptions. They’re always short, sweet and to the point. I also like the fact that they’ve added that bit about occasional selfies being acceptable , but posting them daily isn’t necessary! Truer words were never spoken.
    However, I do need to warn you that this post will be riddled with selfies, thanks to my friends over at Retrak. You see, they’ve singlehandedly redefined the selfie by creating “the original selfie stick.”
    This selfie stick  has upped my selfie game something serious! My selfie game is stronger than it was just a few days ago. LOL I kid… I don’t take that many, but when I do,  the natural light has to be exceptional and my brows must be on fleek ( as the young people like to say) as seen below on exhibit A, B and C!

    I’ve mentioned on numerous occasions that I don’t back up brands/products that don’t align with my blog or reading audience. For me taking that route provides me with peace of mind, knowing that you faithful readers keep coming back because the content MNH provides is one that you find interesting, which in turn helps me grow my audience organically. But once in a while I like to share products I’m digging and don’t necessarily want to wait until the end of the month to include them in my “Fives” –
    With that being said, I wanted to share with you the goodness that is this selfie stick so that you too can up your game!

    I can’t lie, I usually look at folks funny when I see them using these, but for a blogger, style blogger, etc… I can totally see the need! Hahahahah
