Star Trek Into Darkness (2013): Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Leonard Nimoy, Eric Bana, Bruce Greenwood, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Anton Yelchin

"You think you are safe. You are not."  Kahn

Star Trekkies are in for a fun-filled summer movie experience. Star Trek first appeared on television in September 1966 and since then has traveled through time and space with several television spinoffs and a vast array of movies on the large screen.  Star Trek Into Darkness, takes a fresh spin by focusing on Chris Pine, James T. Kirk, earlier career and entire officer team on the U.S.S. Enterprise with Kirk at the helm.  The story begins with a primitive planet where First Officer, Zachary Quinto, Spock, is trapped over a boiling ocean of lava.  Spock, calm, cool and collected is ready to die to save his crew.  Kirk, of course, does not allow this to happen, breaking Federation protocol and saving Spock.  Facing consequences for a brash decision, Kirk, is stripped of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and at the same time finds an unstoppable evil force within their own organization sending shock waves and crisis amongst the land. The mass destruction evil player, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kahn, escapes to space after creating deadly havoc.  Kirk bent on a mission of vengeance after the destruction is given back the Enterprise and blasts into space to a war-zone world to capture the evil doer.  As our favorite heroes speed via warp drive into outer space to conquer evil, friendships are formed and torn, love examined along with a splattering of Romulan's, and even a tribble. 

Star Trek into the Darkness is fantastic from start to finish. The cast is fresh, storyline believable with the  familiar and much loved witty batter amongst the cast of characters.  Audiences will eagerly look forward to more adventures of the starship Enterprise with the new cast as it speeds forward on a 5 year mission where no man has gone before.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Take Three - Jeans & Tops

The Perfect Combination


Since we no longer are attending events that we enjoyed in 2019, our needs for formal wear is not a priority this year.  However, I do believe in dressing up daily with a flattering top or a bit of color for a lift of hope and cheer.  What I have found refreshing as of late, is the ability to visit restaurants and eat outdoors.  Everyone seems upbeat, happy and joyous to be participating in the simpler thrills of life.  The women have taken time to look lovely and are sporting pretty clothes.  After all, our beautiful pieces are just waiting to be worn.  
Additionally, the new norm for most is working from the home, which is a significant change for everyone. Thus, a great pair of jeans and a beautiful top will look and make you feel professional.  It is important to dress for success even if you are in your office or at the kitchen table.  Fix your hair, put on your makeup, and add accessories.  Why not look your best?  You are a powerful woman.  Anyone in busin…

Don't Crush the Butterfly!


"Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people." - Prince




Butterfly's come in all shapes and sizes painted in dazzling and colorful hues.  The beauty and varied differences of the butterfly are astounding and beloved by the beholder.  There are approximately 20,000 species throughout the world dancing in the sun and air.   Yet, what does a butterfly mean to fashionistas?
