Instant Photo Printer

Taking selfies and usies can be fun; but, sometimes you capture an extra special moment – one so special that you want to hold it in your hand. As in print it out! Some people have actual printers in their homes 🙀 and keep photo paper on hand 🙀🙀. My hunch is that most of us don’t. So what options do we have? Sure, you can go online to CVS or Target’s photo lab, upload your picture, wait an hour (or several hours), then skidaddle (sp?) on over to the store and pick it up. Who has time for all that??? I want a small, simple and handy device to keep nearby in case I decide I want to an actual copy of that fabulous pic I took. I also want it right then and there – no waiting!!!! 👊🏽

Urban Outfitters has all kinds of gadgets and trinkets, like the Prynt Smartphone Photo Printer – just the thing I had in mind! The cost is $150 and it works just like you’d imagine; but, with an added feature – video. “Print instant photos from your iPhone 6/6s! Simply attach the Prynt case to your phone, take a photo plus a video. Then, print it out! When you hand your photo to a friend, they can use the Prynt app to unlock the hidden video, magically bringing your Prynt photo to life.

Sure there are similar devices out there; but, this one is super cool with a vintage flare. It comes in 3 colors: white, black and turquoise. The photos print to sticker paper! You can use it on birthday cards, in your planner or make it into a magnet! Prynt is a great Christmas gift idea for tweens – just be sure to buy them extra paper! 😉 Prynt’s blog has many more ideas for this device. To see the Prynt case in action, check out the video below. #HappySaturday

Judging America

We’re ALL guilty of Judging America. If we’re honest, we would also admit that we (sometimes) judge people who share similar background, traits, ethnicities, gender, even the same social status as we do. Photographer Joel Paris uses his photography in powerful way to capture these types of stereotypes. “The first image is not necessarily what you actually see, but it is what you categorize them in your head without knowing who they truly are. The second image explains the truth about the person and how incorrect they were judged initially.” via The Huffington Post Instagram
