Giveaway: Win 1 of 3 Selfie Bags from Cotton Bag Co

29th July 2020

So many of us love to take a good selfie while we’re out about, whether it’s alone or with friends and family.

The clever people at Cotton Bag and Co have created a Selfie Bag to help us take perfect selfies!

They’ve kindly given me three to give away and you can enter at the bottom of this post.

The bag itself is a large cotton bag and has a gorgeous, bright and modern design of abstract eyes.

Selfie Bag from Cotton Bag Co
The Selfie Bag

It’s an improved version of their original bag which was out a few months ago. They have added some great extras including:

-A portable LED light that clips onto your phone

-A pop-out reflector/ defuser panel to help get softer lighting on the face

-A Bluetooth tripod selfie stick to take selfies from up high to fit a group of people or a gorgeous background landscape into the shot.

-A zipped inside pocket for your valuables

The default option to purchase these on the website is for bulk buying, but you can also buy them individually by emailing or calling the company direct.
