This Couple Gets Paid Crazy Money To Post On Instagram

  • Ate pizza in Rome
  • Shopped in Marrakesh
  • Hiked in the mountains of Spain
  • Swam in Santorini
  • Drank tea in Morocco

Not the typical points you’re likely to see on a résumé, but instead, this is job experience that many of today’s young Instagram celebrities are able to boast about. Travel photos are arguably the most common status updates you’ll find on social media (food is perhaps a close second), and it doesn’t come much bigger than holiday pics on Instagram. 26-year-old Jack Morris and 23-year-old Lauren Bullen are genuinely massive stars on the photo sharing app, with close to three million followers between them and a job which involves traveling around the world’s most beautiful locations. And believe us, it’s not just frequent flyer miles that they are raking in.

“The most I’ve personally got for one post is $9,000,” says Jack in an interview with Cosmopolitan. “I did a job for a phone company where I flew out for three days; there were two days filming and then I had to do five photos on Instagram, and that was $35,000.”

After building up their travel photo accounts over many years respectively, the couple is now able to charge tourist boards and major brands thousands of dollars for essentially a nice picture and a hashtag. Amazingly, the couple has even been told that their rates are incredibly low compared to others. “Exact figures are hard to say because every job is different, but we won’t do a post for less than $3,000 USD,” adds Jack.

The Collar Perfect Travel Iron Is The Frequent Traveller’s Best Friend

collar-perfect-travel-iron-22012

You’re running late for a meeting and the only shirts you brought with you on your trip are all wrinkled. Well, if you put a suit on, most of the shirt will not be visible anyway, but what about the collar? That’s of course where the Collar Perfect Travel Iron comes in. All it does it make it super easy to get a crisp collar in a couple of minutes. You can also fold out its ‘wings’ and use it like a traditional iron, though as we mentioned a second ago, that might not even be necessary. It’s $35.

Bluesmart Is The First Connected Smart Luggage

bluesmart-1

If you consider yourself a modern day traveller, you’re really going to want to take a look at Bluesmart. It’s the “world’s first” connected smart luggage, and it actually packs a host of features that have us salivating here at OhGizmo HQ. Check this out:

– TSA-approved lock that can be toggled via the application.
– A proximity sensor will send you a notification if it senses you’re leaving your bag behind.
– A built-in scale in the handle tells you your bag’s weight.
– Location tracking in case of loss (although this is based on the potential proximity of other Bluesmart travellers within range).
– Built-in battery to recharge your electronics (a typical phone up to 6 times over).
– Easy-access front flap to reach your electronic devices within.
– Trip data tracking.

It’s a good looking piece of luggage to boot. The cherry on the icing is that the company isn’t asking for an outrageous sum; the Indiegogo Early Adopter pricing is set at $215 for the moment, and will go up to $235 once that’s over. Delivery is far away, however, with August 2015 slated as the target.

Leggage Laptop Case Gives You A Foot Massage On Those Long Flights

Leggage-laptop-case-2

The only thing more unpleasant about flying than having the seat in front of you jammed into your knees, is not being able to get back into your shoes at the end of a long flight because they swelled up so darn much. They say you should get up and walk around, but it’s not always possible to move that monolith next to you, snoring his day away. The Leggage laptop case features ribbed and angled hard surfaces that give you up to 9 different massaging positions. Just place your case on the floor and rub your feet all over it, angling them up and down and promoting circulation. Then stand right back up like you haven’t just been confined to a flying box of sardines for 12 hours. You can fit laptops up to 15.6 inches inside the case, and only comes in black. It’s $80.
