I take a lot of photos. And I mean a lot. I have this innate need to preserve memories. I think it comes from my fear of forgetting. So more often than not, I will whip out my camera or phone to capture anything I want to freeze in time. Over the last couple of years, I was fed up of my photos sitting unloved on my hard drive and began getting them printed so I could store them in Albums and flick through them easily.
Now for a long time I've been lusting after a polaroid camera of sorts, but two things have prevented me from owning one - 1. The price of owning the actual camera 2. The price I'd have to pay on top for the prints themselves! So when Cheerz let me pick out something from their website, I dived straight for the Cheerz box*. This solved my problem perfectly, I could print lots of my photos cheaply and in the distinct polaroid style that I loved so much.
Ordering couldn't be easier. You can upload straight from your computer or even social media accounts such as Facebook or Instagram. After, it allows you to double check that the photos you choose will fit in the polaroid frame and you can adjust this how you please. You are able to add filters to your photos and text at this point too which is great to help personalise your prints, especially if they are a present for someone else! You then enter your payment details and that's it! Delivery is also really speedy too, I ordered mine on a Wednesday night and they arrived on the Monday!
I chose the Cheerz box specifically because I loved the little box it came in although the photos were are far too nice to keep tucked away. You can choose between two styles and they would make a perfect gift for a special occasion or even Christmas! You can also include a little note card if you want to pass on a message. There are lots of other products to choose between such as magnets and posters which I know I'll be going back for!
I was really impressed with the quality of the polaroids, they are really glossy and lovely to leaf through. I chose a variety of different images to have printed such as holiday photos, family pictures and even a few motivational quotes - we all know how much I love those!
I actually decided to display a few of my polaroid's on this cork map that we have up in our spare room. For every country we have visited, I've printed a photo and have attached it with a piece of string which leads directly to the place on the map. We are determined to visit lots of countries together so this is a great way to survey where we have been and where we want to go next. It's also a great physical reminder of the wonderful places we have already been that we get to see every day.
Now for the best bit! I have three vouchers worth £20 to be spent on whatever you'd like on Cheerz.co.uk. Unfortunately this giveaway is only open to those in the UK but it's very easy to enter and you simply just have to follow the steps below!
