Examples of Helen in a Sentence

  1. Christopher Faraone:

    Most of the curses are what we call binding spells: they aim at binding or inhibiting the performance of a rival. A lot of them have to do with legal cases. They say things like, Bind the tongue and the thoughts of so-and-so, who is about to testify against me on Monday, we have some that are aimed at rival musicians or actors, and a couple that seem to be connected with athletics. We have some that run something like this, Bind Helen, so that she is unsuccessful when she flirts or makes love with Demetrius. But the great majority of them seem to be connected with lawsuits.

  2. Andrea Fishkin:

    Fishkin told Fox News. SCIENTISTS DISCOVER POTENTIAL CURE FOR GRAY HAIR Fishkin said her mother started going gray when she was 18, so she knew there was a good chance she would follow the same silver path. After 12 years of dyeing her hair every four to six weeks, Fishkin decided to accept her silver tresses. I get compliments every day, it really makes me who I am. I love the brightness of it, I think it really matches me really well. Women like Fishkin are not alone in their silver journey. Celebrities like Jamie Lee Curtis and Helen Mirren were some of the first to embrace full silver. And now younger women like Kendall Jenner, Pink and Lady Gaga have followed suit. We’re talking about the last five years the silver trend has been going on, and I'm amazed at how many women actually look really great with silver hair, Massey said.
