Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve checked in! Truthfully it’s a busy time of year as we are gearing up for a very busy summer season! We are working on designs for two NEW major Sci-fi franchises but we are keeping it under wraps for a little while longer until we have some of the new merchandise ready. I cannot WAIT to share more with you…I think you will be really excited!
In the meantime, I have some thoughts that I wanted to share with you. Apparently, I’m a little late to the party, but Her Universe is now on Pinterest and I am addicted! Pinterest is right up my alley! I’m actually a pretty private person, so my first instinct is not always to post something about my day on Facebook and Twitter. However, I love to share new discoveries or my favorite things with people. I get so excited to share things that I like with people and Pinterest is the perfect way to share things with your friends! Whether it’s finding shopping tips, recipes, arts and crafts ideas or just inspirational words, I am finding myself constantly wanting to check the Pinterest boards. If you haven’t checked out Pinterest yet, make sure you do and don’t forget to follow my Her Universe boards!
So after, flying and crying through the entire Hunger Games trilogy of books, I was SOOOOOO excited to see the movie. Bottom line, I enjoyed the movie. They cut out a lot of the book which was a bit frustrating at times, but I understand that, because of time, they had to. Overall, it was a nice adaptation. However, what I really want to talk about is Jennifer Lawrence and her performance as Katniss Everdeen. WOW!!! She blew me away!!! I personally thought she was fantastic! As an actress we can sometimes be tough critics. There is a big difference between “acting” the role (when someone can tell that you are reciting lines) and “becoming” the role (this is when the audience forgets they are watching an actor or actress perform and they truly believe they are watching that character). Jennifer Lawrence BECAME Katniss. Jennifer Lawrence, the actress, went away and I felt like I was watching the heroine from district 12 that we have all grown to love. Becoming a character is not easy and Jennifer Lawrence gave a tour de force performance that I hope will, once again, earn her many awards nominations.
I am excited to tell you that we are introducing new t-shirt styles into our collection! We have some racer-back tank tops coming out this summer and a new Dolman top that I am in LOVE with! It’s super soft, has a scoop neck and it drapes the body in a very flattering way. It’s not fitted so it’s very comfortable all the while staying flirty and feminine! Here is a photo of one of my samples of a new Star Wars shirt we are working on. In person it looks vintage, like it’s been in the closet since 1977 and now you’re pulling it back out to wear with some colored jeans for a cool spring/summer look. This top and several new items will be available starting in May!
Well, this is all for now…I am actually writing this on an airplane during flight! They will be telling me to power down soon!
All my best,
