Most Wanted Christmas Gift is a Selfie Gadget!!

It's got to be the perfect gift especially if you're not lucky enough to be with loved-ones this Christmas. Take the perfect self-portrait easily with a Selfie Extender Stick. With a Bluetooth Remote Shutter pack you can pair the shutter with your mobile device, then secure your smartphone to the adjustable head of your new monopod stick. Open your photo app, extend and say cheese. Perfect if you want to include your friends and  maybe produce an epic pic like talk show host, Ellen De Generez whose Oscar selfie with celebrities Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep and other stars of the night continues to break records and is the most re-tweeted picture of all time. You don't need to break any records but you can capture your perfect moment with mates at a festival or concert or send a loving message to relatives and friends in far away places.

Irish star Hozier’s global hit Take Me To Church has been announced as 2014’s most streamed track of the year. This morning Spotify announced the song as their global number 1 most shared song on the service in 2014, and the biggest song in the world at this moment. It follows confirmation that Take Me To Church had already topped their global chart (with over 87 million streams to date), and further cements the young Wicklow musician as the first tangible example of a breakthrough streaming superstar. The track currently sits at 1 on the Shazam worldwide chart. At the turn of this year, the video to Take Me To Church had quickly gone viral, and now sits with over 40 million views on YouTube. It caps a hugely successful, breakthrough year for Andrew Hozier-Byrne, having picked up his first Grammy nomination this month for Song of the Year, and debuting his critically acclaimed eponymous album at number 2 in the US Billboard chart (the second biggest debut album of the year), number 5 in the UK, and enjoying five weeks at number 1 in his native Ireland. To date, Hozier has sold-out all his headline shows across the globe and will headline two nights at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire in January, a little over one year from headlining the 100-capacity Troubadour in Earls Court back in January 2014. The debut album, ‘Hozier’, is out now through Rubyworks/Island Records. Watch Take Me To Church here
