Emoji your messages

Emojis, everyone is using them, even Foreign Minister Julie Bishop isn’t adverse to sticking a smiley face at the end of a message. But if you’re ready to take it to the next level, here are 10 fun emojis that will perfectly illustrate your messages.

1. Super sleuth


Use when you’re trying to get to the bottom of a tasty rumour or particularly confusing conundrum.

2. Mouth zipped closed


Convince your friends that their secrets are safe, or indeed, to keep their lips sealed about your confidences.

3. Live long and prosper


Rather than just wish someone good health, give them a traditional Vulcan greeting.

4. Unicorn head


If you’re not quite sure someone is telling you the truth, let them know you believe them as much as you believe in unicorns.

5. Turkey

We just really like this but you could use it to convey just how useless something is.

6. Spicy chilli

You could use this to let someone know you find them hot, or perhaps, more likely, how spicy your dinner was last night.

7. Popcorn


If you’re taking someone to the movies, let them know the snacks are on you, or use to invite someone around for a movie night.

8. Racing car

If you’ve got a friend with a lead foot, let them know it’s time they slowed down their driving.

9. Airplane taking off


Give your friends a dose of jealousy by letting them know you’re off on holiday.

10. In a hole

Alert your text buddy that you’re in a spot of bother!
