Solo: A Star Wars Story Mini Trailer

Yesterday, director Ron Howard announced the title of the upcoming Han Solo stand alone movie. It’s called Solo: A Star Wars Story. Set to be released next May, it’s not a surprise that the details of the movie, other than the general plot are being kept under wraps for the present. What is known is that the film is a prequel to Episode 4 and will tell the story of Han’s life before he met Luke, Leia and company.

Given the success of Rogue One and The Force Awakens and the hype surrounding The Last Jedi, I hope that this prequel/standalone film will only add to the luster of the Star Wars legacy and given fans a new reason to be loud and proud of their fandom.

Bingley’s Teas

There are two kinds of tea in this world. There is the ordinary bland, factory made tea that can be purchased at any deli or grocery store. Then there is the tea that from the moment you open the bag to the last drop going down your throat wraps you in tea heaven.

This is Bingley’s Teas.

Named for Charles Bingley from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, this delicious, loose tea made with a variety of ingredients offers a delectable range of teas to choose from. Opening a bag of Bingley’s Teas is akin to being wrapped in a warm blanket on a cold winter day. Whether it is a black tea to help you get up in the morning or a green tea to sooth the nerves after a long day of work,  this tea is far and away one the best tea brands I’ve ever had.

And of course, their Jane Austen tea line is sheer perfection. My personal favorite is Lizzie Bennet’s Wit.

If you must buy tea, I absolutely recommend Bingley’s Teas. It will forever change the way you drink and appreciate tea.

Beautiful Trauma Album Review

When P!nk broke into the music world at the turn of the millennium, she was packaged as just another pop princess. But P!nk was determined to be her own artist and not be defined by the genre or the era that saw her become a superstar.

Nearly twenty years and six albums later, she released her latest album, Beautiful Trauma last week. What I love about the album is that it is everything I expected and more from her.

Some of the songs are heartfelt (Barbies), some are political (What About Us) and some are just too darn catchy (Revenge, which is a duet with Eminem).

What I love about this album and what I’ve always loved about P!nk as an artist is that her music is real. There is nothing false or phony about her songs. I love artists who cut past the b*llsh*t and produce albums that are authentic and real. P!nk has always been and hopefully will always be one of those artists.

I absolutely recommend it.

Beautiful Trauma is available wherever music is sold.
