I get it – you’re totally over your ex! You are definitively not roping a platonic friend into going on a faux ice skating date to make it look like you’re in a new, shiny, wonderful relationship. But if you’re going to take a video, do it right – a Facebook Live of you breaking a limb is never a good look. Here’s Craig Heatha professional ice skater, on capturing that perfect pic.

‘Taking selfies on the ice is super-fun. Be sure to bend your knees to avoid falling backwards and dropping your phone. To get the best selfie, hold your phone up with one hand and frame your face in the middle of the screen. Then, with your knees bent, start turning around. The faster you can turn, the cooler it looks.’
