Expression Alert: Xmas Booth!

It’s that time year again – when the embarrassing jumpers come out, shoppers go crazy and we all eat far too much chocolate. And to celebrate Christmas in true Urturn fashion, we’ve created a fun and festive new Expression. Say hello to the Xmas Booth!


Hop inside the booth and you’ll find a selection of Christmassy stickers, including reindeer ears, gingerbread men, and, of course, the classic Santa hat. To get started just select the Xmas Booth Expression, add your own picture, and add as many stickers as you want! Think of it as a little Christmas gift from us ;)

So go ahead, #Christmasify yourself! It’s your turn…

Movember: Take a #MoSelfie on Urturn!

November is upon us, which can only mean one thing – *drumroll please*…. It’s MOVEMBER time!

To raise awareness of men’s health we’ve developed a super cool Movember Expression, which allows you to take your very own #MoSelfie and track your stache’s progress. But if you can’t grow a Mo, no worries, just select one of our ready-made stickers and slap on a tash of your choice.

As well as raising awareness for men’s health, we also want to raise money for this Mowesome cause, so team Urturn will be growing their Mo’s with pride throughout the whole of November. You can help us reach our goal by clicking the ‘Donate’ button on any Movember post, or clicking HERE to donate through our official team page. Feel free to share our page too, the Mo the merrier!

Turners go #Miley crazy!

Miley Cyrus is undoubtedly the guurl of the moment – her controversial VMAs performance drew an astounding 306,100 Tweets per minute, whilst her twerking antics and crazy tongue-out poses continue to cause a storm worldwide. And now the internet frenzy has spread to Urturn, where users are getting creative with some LOL-worthy Miley movements!

Earlier this week Miley launched her very own Bangerz Expression, enabling fans to put themselves smack-bang on the front cover of her highly-anticipated new album. Cool huh? Just take your pic, cut yourself out to fit the shape, stick yourself on the cover and enter your own text. Just like these cool kids…

But the Miley fun doesn’t stop there! Oh no my friends – turners have taken to Urturn to react to her headline-grabbing #WreckingBall video, her #Twerk dance moves and, our most popular, her wild tongue, by sticking a #MileyTongueEverywhere. Because what’s the internet without a little fun?

Top Turner: Company Magazine

Say hello to this week’s Top Turner – the chic and stylish Company Magazine!

Whether it’s a new cover star or a street style snap, Company are great at expressing themselves in fun and engaging ways. Managed by Company’s Web & Social Coordinator Kat Perriam, Company have amassed over 4,000 followers on Urturn since signing up a few months ago.

We love them here at Urturn, but what is it that gets Company turning?

“The best thing about Urturn is that it’s easy and accessible. It’s also a really good tool to get your point across in a fun, engaging way,” said Kat. “Working at Company magazine means that you’re not always sat at your desk. What with press days, London Fashion Week, launches and photo shoots, it’s really handy to just have Urturn just there on your phone so I can use it anytime, anywhere.”

And it seems Company’s style and tech savvy readers love Urturn too! “I love the fact that Company readers are so responsive to new social media,” she said. “The moment something new launches, I can almost guarantee that Company readers want to be the first people on there trying it out.”

Plus, there’s plenty of Expressions relevant to Company’s audience, which appeal to Kat and her followers alike. “I like playing around with the new Expressions that seem to be popping up every day. The Love Expression is relatively new, but probably my favourite at the moment,” she said. “Aside from that I love Bip Ling’s Mooch It – we’re big fans of Bip Ling at Company and this is a really cute and fun little tool to play around with.”

And lastly, how would she describe Urturn? “Fun, engaging, addictive.” We couldn’t agree more :)
