Boomf - Eating my marshmallow face!

For those of you who didn't know - you can now have your Instagram pictures printed on to marshmallows. Yes, edible ones, so you can eat your photos. Pretty awesome hey. I absolutely LOVE this idea, what a great present for that Instagram fan in your life, it's such a quirky gift and makes for so much enjoyment. You can also use your Facebook photos or even upload them from your desktop ! I went for Instagram this time...

From the moment I placed my order I was excited. Having to choose just 9 images was pretty tough though, as I currently have about 1500 to choose from, but I made my choice, a little selection of some floral ones, some happy memories and a couple of my face, just because I thought it would be fun to eat my face!

The order process is SO easy, you just log in with your Instagram account and select the images you want to use. If you want to change your mind you can as you preview your box before ordering, just to check the colours all compliment each other of course !

I got my dispatch email the same day and they were delivered the next day !! Amazing. They say it can take up to 2 - 3 days in the UK, a week for Europe & 2 - 3 weeks for the rest of the world!

So my lovely box arrived in shiny silver wrapping... I was so excited to open them up ! Just another side note, they fit through the letterbox which is amazing as you don't need to nip to the post office to collect if you are out ! Perfect sizing Boomf!

So here's the lovely box..

Inside the box it reads... 

OOh I will thank you Boomf !Look how cute and tasty you have made my pictures....Just to fill you in incase you are wondering, starting from the top left, thats my sister and I, then a pretty pink smoothie and my lovely peonies, Si & I , my blog image, some gorgeous pink roses, sharing an ice cream with some of my faves, my parents, a little hello and a pretty flower arrangement I made. A pretty selection don't you think ?

So they look pretty all together, but what do they look like close up... oh hello :) The quality of the print is pretty amazing ! I absolutely love them ! Too good to eat right ?..... or maybe not !

OOh they DEFINITELY pass the taste test. So fluffy and yummy and soft. Yes, an absolutely delicious vanilla marshmallow.

Now for a photo one... I had some help in trying out this one... this is one of my favourite photos of us so it was only fitting he got to try it.... 

He was only too happy to oblige - but thought it appropriate to eat me first for some reason! ... 

Look how happy he is with himself.. 

I will definitely be buying more of these in the future, I have so many ideas - how great would they be as table 'name' settings for the Christmas table, everyone gets their own photo, or for a 1st birthday party, get a whole load printed with pictures of their 1st year, how sweet would that be. The opportunities are endless. 

What's really awesome too is you can print using a followers Instagram account - so if you wanted to do them as a present, you can sneakily do this without them knowing - how good is that !! 

Another great thing about these is, I haven't yet got around to printing any of my Instagram photos, but in the box you get a sheet of your images - I guess they test the colours first and include it to show you what you've chosen BUT I had a sneaky idea to re use this and make them in to stickers or magnets for the fridge ! 

Just cut them out - you could laminate if you wanted to, glue little magnet dots on the back or even just a bit of blu tak ! And there you have it - a little extra gift I wasn't expecting but can treasure forever! 

Pop over to Boomf now to find out more or place an order !! In my opinion these are well worth £15 for a box of 9 ! It's free worldwide delivery too ! So much fun and enjoyment to be had !

Let me know if you have tried these before and what you did with them or if you have any other ideas or inspiration for me - I'd love to hear from you in the comments below ! 

Thanks so much for reading, I am off to eat my face ! 

*This post is not sponsored, but I was kindly sent a box for review and boy was I happy with them - all comments are my own and I would only speak true to you guys & myself :) x
