Looking to mix things up on Instagram and follow an account that doesn’t only feature hot shirtless guys? If so, then @everyoutfitonsatc is for you. Especially, if you love snark and a fan of Sex and the City.

The brilliant account is the brainchild of New York-based writer Lauren Garroni and decorator Chelsea Fairless. It’s their quest to document every outfit, handpicked by stylist Patricia Field, worn on the iconic HBO show. “Every outfit is a picture into the soul,” Lauren told Paper.

Honestly, it’s a fun read and several posts made me chuckle. Check out a few of my favorites below.

wonder-woman-75th-anniversary

In partnership with Warner Bros, the U.S. Postal Service is commemorating the 75th anniversary of one of the most iconic Super Heroes of all time — Wonder Woman. The commemorative stamps will be officially unveiled during this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, with the first-day-of-issue ceremony taking place at New York’s Comic-Con October 7.

First seen in October 1941 in a back-up story for All Star Comics #8, meant to test her appeal at a time when female superheroes were rare, Wonder Woman quickly broke out and headlined her own title by the next year. Subsequent generations came to know the star-spangled heroine with metal bracelets on her wrists and a magic lasso by her waist via her hit 1975-79 television series and roles in animated shows and movies, as well as her historic appearance on the cover Ms. Magazine #1 in 1972. This past March, Wonder Woman was seen for the first time in a live action motion picture with her introduction in the movie “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

The new issuance showcases four different stamp designs on a sheet of 20 stamps depicting Wonder Woman during four eras of comic book history: Golden Age (1941–55), Silver Age (1956–72), Bronze Age (1973–86) and Modern Age (1987–present). Check out below what the US Postal Service has in store for Diana Prince’s diamond anniversary.

Happy National Fried Chicken Day!!!

Not that I need a reason to celebrate one of my favorite foods, but at least today, I have an excuse. Happy National Fried Chicken Day ya’ll!!!

Though July 6 has been designated as a day to feast on some deep fried greasy goodness at your favorite restaurant, home or outdoor picnic, the actual origin of the holiday is not known. What is known though, is the Scottish were the first to deep fry their chicken and in fact, Scottish immigrants were the ones who brought the dish to the United States. And for that, I’ll be forever indebted to 😉

Naturally, I’m going to devour some fried chicken today, even though I just had it on Sunday 😉 Though Kentucky Fried Chicken was my go-to for decades, lately I’ve been on a Church’s kick. However, if Popeye’s was closer, I’d probably frequent that more often. What’s your favorite fast food fried chicken haunt? Weigh in below.

On July 1, 1941 the first ever paid television advertisement was broadcast in the United States. It aired before a baseball game between the Brooklyn Dodgers and Philadelphia Phillies. Bulova watches made history with its nine second commercial.

According to Ad Age, the spot featuring well-known announcer Ray Forrest only cost $4 to make. Definitely a far cry from today’s insane spots during the Super Bowl. Check out the Bulova ad below.

Diplo kicks off his Mad Decent Block Party Tour on July 30 in Fort Lauderdale. Kesha will be headlining the 15 North American stops featuring acts like AlunaGeorge, DJ Snake, Kaskade and many more. To promote the tour, Diplo enlisted one of Kesha’s former co-stars, James Van Der Beek.

If you recall, the Dawson’s Creek actor appeared in Kesha’s “Blow” music video years ago. This time around, he plays a hyper-fictionalized version of Diplo in a new ad promoting the summer festival. Check out the video below to watch The Beek get his douchebag on. He’s actually quite good at it.

It’s Britney Bitch!!! Or should I say Belle. The tale as old as time gets a new makeover courtesy of Todrick Hall.

This isn’t the first time Hall has reworked Beauty and the Beast. He memorably delivered a ratchet version, Beauty and the Beat, a couple of years ago. This time around, Toddy retells the beloved film using only songs from Britney Spears. Watch Gaston, Belle, Lumiere and all your favorites sing Brit’s hits like “Lucky,” “Overprotected,” “Everytime,” “Break The Ice” and naturally “Toxic.”

Hall steps in to play the titular Beast while his BF Jesse Pattison and his muscles channel Gaston. Meanwhile, Brittanie Brant portrays Belle. Check out the highly-entertaining clip below.

Nadkins Will Make Your Balls Whistle

In: Donovan, Random Reads, Totally GAY!

“When they’re happy. You’re happy.” And by they, they mean those two oval organs in your pelvic region. “Because when you feel fresh and clean, you instantly become your confident best,” claims Nadkins.

What are Nadkins you ask? The company dubs themselves as male jewels refresher towelettes. The 100% natural, non-toxic moistened single-use wipes cleans, cools and deodorizes your ‘little guys’ with its subtle, pleasing citrus-mint fragrance.

Now that you know what Nadkins are, you have to check out their latest commercial. The ad is absolutely insane, but the dancing and whistling balls are oddly mesmerizing 😉

Joelle “JoJo” Fletcher began her quest for true love this week on the premiere of The Bachelorette Season 12. Is it me or does is look pretty damn obvious who she’s already fallen for? Thank God, I have Jordan in my fantasy pool 😉

Meanwhile, the OG JoJo, of “Too Little, Too Late” fame, pops up in the latest Bachelor spinoff- The Millennial Bachelorette. Before you get too excited Bachelor Nation, it’s not a real show, but rather a new Funny or Die spoof. The 25-year-old singer makes a special, and humorous, cameo in the clip.

The actual leading lady, though, is Keke Palmer who’s on the hunt for her one true, non-exclusive, soulmate. “Get ready for a summer full of unmet expectations and poorly communicated feelings, this season is definitely gonna hurt,” the video description states.

Check out the clip below. At long last, we finally have a non-white leading lady, albeit for a parody, but still, it’s a start.
