I can’t quite describe the delight at receiving a box of your own instagrammed marshmallows through the letter box on a Saturday morning while nursing a mild hangover from too much elderflower champagne the night before…
Only a couple of days ago, super cool company Boomf got in touch offering to send me a box of their special marshmallows personalised with my Instagram shots. WHY hadn’t I dreamed up this genius idea myself? It’s just too good. You hook up your Instagram account from the Boomf website then compile your nine shots. I did this quite a few times over, going for different colour palettes and types of pictures. You want to go for high contrast photos for the best results and (predictably) I agonised over this!
One of the nicest things was trawling back through so many instagram shots, reminding myself of so many places and special moments. I love all the mediums we document our lives online with these days and Instagram is, for me, one of the most satisfying and creative. Once I’d finally chosen my shots, I filled in the order form – let me just say this, free shipping worldwide! Amazingly good idea, how could you resist? A box comes in at £12. What the hell are you waiting for? It’s just too good.
And in case you’re wondering, no, I haven’t dared eat one yet! Am such a wimp, can’t bear to – each one feels way too precious! Just think how cool it would be to send wedding guests a post-party box or to friends after a holiday, or just after any special occasion. Or maybe no occasion at all, just the most gorgeous surprise, themed or totally random, for someone you care about… Sweet sweet Saturday with the the sweetest hangover I ever did have!
