I want to be Helen Mirren when I grow up. SHE IS SO HOT!

Instagram tips from Gala Darling.

People who are dying regret hating their bodies. This was hard to read but I’m glad I did.

I can’t with the educational version of “Anaconda.” I love it. It is NSFW though.

My level of anger over the opinion that young men are incapable of controlling themselves and that young women should hide anything that suggests they are female keeps growing. Teaching young girls and women that they are targets because they are women and that they should hide themselves is the basis of “you wore a short skirt so you deserved it when you were raped.” How can this come out of people’s mouths? We all came from a woman, OUR MOTHERS, and you still treat women as a lesser group of individuals.

14 things that plus-sized girls are tired of hearing. Thanks Buzzfeed.

Kelly’s story about meeting Oscar De La Renta is gorgeous.

Instagram Roundup #27

by Jamie Sanford on February 13, 2013

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups!

I bought this ridiculously warm hoodie with a scarf attached from ideeli a while back. It really does the trick.

I followed behind my husband in the rental car while they took my injured car to the shop. I realized on the way that bumper replacement meant that these stickers would be out of my life. My car belonged to my grandmother before she sold it to me and there was NO way I was taking her stickers off of the back. I was really sad about it, and posted a photo to Instagram (which means Facebook too). My Uncle John called my grandmother to tell her that he saw my picture and would buy me a new GB sticker for the car. I love it.

I caught the BAFTAs red carpet and saw Queen Badass Helen Mirren with pink hair! I am seriously obsessed with her. She is insanely hot and now she has pink hair which is just really cool.

I totally slipped and fell in our complex’s parking lot after the big snowstorm and resulting ice. Luckily I was only bleeding from this one spot.

This is a little view of my new desk at home. I was floating around for a while between the bedroom and the couch with my laptop and it really sucked. Now I have this little desk and it is even better when I can set up my podcast stuff without it being super precarious. Adding the pop screen made a huge difference.

I certainly hope so. It’s been a little crazy these past few weeks.

The best end to the Instagram week was getting a box of hand-decorated macarons from Creme Delicious. They are gorgeous and crazy delicious!

Helen Mirren: Celebrity Product Pick

by Jamie Sanford on January 18, 2011

Did everyone watch the Golden Globes this weekend?  I was more excited this year as Trent Reznor won his first Golden Globe! I’ve been a serious fan of his since I was much younger and I’m thrilled for his current success with co-composing the score for The Social Network.

Anyway, the red carpet was a great time as well, there was so much fabulous fashion! One person I didn’t see on television during red carpet coverage but who I loved on the show was Helen Mirren.  She always looks fabulous!


This is Helen Mirren at the 2007 Oscars.

This is Dame Helen Mirren at the 2010 Oscars – still looking sexy and fabulous.

Here is a photo from the Golden Globe Awards, earlier this week.  Helen looks more fabulous when you see her side by side with the runway model in the dress in this post on Red Carpet Fashion Awards.

Anyway, I’m a big fan of Helen – I don’t think I’m alone in that, a lot of people seem excited about the fact that she remains so sexy and gorgeous and she is 65!

Helen Mirren appeared in last month’s “On My Mind” feature in In Style magazine, and discussed her love of stripper heels, her desire to work with Quentin Tarantino and finally, her discovery of a Revlon product called Just Bitten.

I am not aware of this product and haven’t tried it but I definitely will pick it up now.  That applicator looks like it would be really easy to use, and Helen insists that the color sticks around for quite a while.

The Helen Mirren pick, Revlon Just Bitten lip stain, is available in multiple colors for $7.69 from Amazon.
