There is no denying that Helen Mirren is a favorite of the Sixty and Me community. Not only do we love her as an actress, but, she is also a down-to-earth, graceful and generous lady. In other words, she is someone who both inspires and entertains! Just for fun, we have prepared a short quiz to help you test your knowledge of Helen Mirren. We hope you enjoy it!
We all have our list of “bucket list” travel destinations (my list involves visiting every city on 7 hills), but, we can always use a little more inspiration. So, we have gathered 20 amazing bucket list travel destinations that every woman should see at least once in her life. From traveling Route 66 to watching the northern lights, there are so many amazing places to visit! How many have you seen?
