#Celfie Mania...

Now I think if we're all honest we'd admit to being partial to a smidge of over-indulgent #Selfie one-on-one action! Whether that be a cheeky snap to a boyfriend or girlfriend, a 'how do I look' capture before a night out or a holiday smoast lazing on a lounger cocktail in hand! The self-portrait of the digital age swept the world hard back in 2012 and continues to reign in a royal fashion.

So who's to blame for the rise and rise of the #Selfie? Well the celebs of this world have got a lot to answer for - the likes of Bieber, Kelly Brook, Miley and Rose H Whitely have been busy posting posy photos of themselves for quite some time now and don’t seem to be showing any signs of growing tired of this me, me, me mentality…

And it's not just starlets, popstars and models getting involved in this photographic 
phenomenon... Jules of Sincerely Jules (one of our must-read fashion blogs) has taken this trend to the next level and created the ultimate fashion blogger tee with a twist! Playing on the Céline craze and the #Selfie sensation she's designed... wait for it... the ‘Célfie’ tee - genius!!!

It's yet to explode and take over the world in the same way the #Selfie has but watch this space as Ashley Tisdale has already been papped rocking one and other high profile bloggers like The Blonde Salad are also getting in on the action…

If you're late to the #Selfie party, follow the 3BM how-to bluffers guide in mastering a kickass #Selfie of your own...
  1. It’s all in the angle - tilt your Smartphone to 45 degrees angle just above your eyeline – this is deemed generally the most forgiving
  2. Lights, Camera, #Selfie – a flattering beam of a backlit light, artistic flare or a touch of reflective flash will have you positively glowing 
  3. Pose for your life – a stellar #Selfie is all in the pose … the perfect pout, a cheeky rasied brow, a sideways smirk
  4. Vintage filter – Instragram the hell out of your snap *B&W is always the most flattering
