Happy Holidays Featuring NEW PhotoScan App By Google Photos! ModestlyHot Throwback Photos!

Happy Holidays Guys!!

There are two kinds of people in this world:

  1. Those who listen to Christmas music right at the beginning of October (or sooner lol)
  2. And those who just HAVE to wait until after Thanksgiving

 

……Aaand then theres me who refuses to comply with the norm and listens to Christmas music year round #sorrynotsorry

Needless to say, Thanksgiving break was a much needed time of rest. Even though I was not able to spend Thanksgiving with my family this year; I was grateful to spend Thanksgiving in a church member’s home and had a blast! (Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Hernandez!)

I was still missing my family over the break, but looking at our old photos of past holidays (and a lot of phone calls) really helped me stay connected with them over the holiday break.

Now if you are anything like my family; you probably have that infamous box of old photo prints stashed in a box somewhere in the creepy attic/basement that no one dares to go in because of the hassle. (or in my case the fear of the creepy, icky spiders one might find up there!)  😦

Regardless, it is a sad thing that we do not look at these *priceless gems* more often mainly because all the photographs we have are saved instantly on our mobile devices.

Well that is no longer the case because Google Photos has created a tool, a brand-new app called PhotoScan which allows us to bring these forgotten pictures back to life in very high quality, no glare photographs! Mind you, it is not just a”picture of a picture” cause we are all guilty of doing that, but instead it uses your cell-phone’s built in technology as an image scanner.

All you do is simply touch the four corners of the photograph print you want to save and within seconds you have your timeless photo saved as a digital, high resolution image on your phone FOREVER!

The possibilities are endless!

Bad hair day pictures?

Chubby baby pictures?

“Seeing what your parents really looked like before they had you” pictures?

And of course the classic “what was I thinking?!” pictures! (Now those are fun! 😉

Imagine having all those memories readily available on your phone to share with the world because why not?! Everyone needs a laugh or two at some good ol’ throwback pics 😉

So with the help of Google Photo Scan here are my throwback holiday pics that I’m probably going to regret posting but YOLO er something like that 😛

Look #3 Casual Christmas Party Outfit! 

This outfit are for those casual Christmas parties, where you want to feel dressed up but with more of a professional edge. The classic peplum pencil dress cut gives you the shape without having to be too uncomfortable! This Jcpenney dress has just the right amount of sparkle on the collar with micro silver glitter all throughout the dress!

Since the dress was sleeveless I added a holiday green blazer for modesty purposes! I adore this blazer!! It was a mega clearance find at Ross!
