Move over Gwyneth, Blake is taking the reigns!
Blake Lively’s highly anticipated lifestyle site, Preserve, has finally launched!
The Gossip Girl alum admitted that launching her personal site has left her feeling “intimidated”. Her intimidation might stem from the criticism she received for wanting to start her own lifestyle site, which many people are comparing to Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow’s site. Although I personally think she’s going to give Goop a run for its money.
So what can we expect from Preserve? Let’s ask the editor herself!
“Sitting down to write this editor’s letter has been the hardest thing I’ve done yet on my Preserve journey. I’m more intimidated than I should probably admit. I’m no editor, no artisan, no expert. And certainly no arbiter of what you should buy, wear, or eat,” she wrote in her humble first “Letter from the Editor”.
For Lively, the site is “part magazine, part e-commerce hub, [and] part philanthropic endeavor”. The idea behind it is that everyone has a story to tell, but she’s not taking all the credit. Preserve is as much everyone’s story that she’s ever had the pleasure of working with, as much as it is hers. It’s a mixture of the “most dedicated, soulful, wise, patient people I’ve ever had the honor of working alongside,” explained the 26-year-old blonde.
“Here at Preserve, there are people, stories, essays, videos, and goods that hopefully inspire your home, your style, and your tongue. There’s expensive stuff. Inexpensive stuff. And everything in between. But their value, that’s up to you. We romanticize it, calling it treasure. What we’re simply saying is that we see their worth on every level,” Ryan Reynolds’ wife wrote.
In other words, if you ever need inspiration, if you ever need a helpful decorating/style tip, this is the site to check out. I mean, she doesn’t need many credentials. She’s basically the queen of the red carpet for every high fashion event. So if she wants to give me some decor, fashion, food, love, etc. advice, I’m totally in. I’m just not sure if I’m able to afford it.
That’s really the only problem with these e-commerce sites that are being sold to us by stars. Sure, Blake Lively handpicked these items and while their fantastic, in good taste, and look great on pinterest and instagram, do I honestly need to spend $100 on something I could probably find for much cheaper at like TJMaxx? (And side note, yes I do go to TJMaxx?). Not sure. But I won’t knock it. You can buy anything from candles, to love letters from New Orleans, to “organic” jewelry, to hot fudge and ketchup. And while I think $8 is a little much for ketchup, to each his own. Maybe it is really the best ketchup you’ve ever had? I probably won’t ever know.
The site isn’t made for poor, young college students in loans, nor is it made for people who don’t have a summer home to store all these fancy, irrelevant things. It’s for people who have a little more excess cash to waste and want to seem like they have good and “artisan” taste. So let it be. Haven’t you ever bought something solely because someone like Lauren Conrad was marketing it and you wanted to be just like her? It’s the same thing, except this is a look into Blake Lively’s brain and imagination. So if you’re a fan, this is your heaven.

When Is Season 3 of ‘Ginny and Georgia’ Coming Out?
Ginny and Georgia centers on the heartwarming yet extremely complicated bond between a mother and her daughter after they put down roots in a New England town.
With so many compelling storylines and incredible characters of all ages, it’s no wonder that the coming-of-age drama has become a fan favorite among Netflix audiences.
The second season of Ginny and Georgia premiered on Jan. 5, 2023, which means that a third season is likely far off, especially considering Brianne Howey, who plays Georgia, just announced her first pregnancy, which will possibly delay filming.

Of course, Netflix has to renew the series for a third season. As of March 28, 2023, it has not given the show a green light for additional episodes.
Fans shouldn’t be too worried, however, as a renewal is very likely considering the show’s performance, the rabid fan base, and the fact that season 3 ended on such a cliffhanger—Netflix knows that fans will be clamoring for another season to see how the situation resolves itself.
As for a premiere date, well, there isn’t one just yet. Until the series is renewed and production begins, it’s a bit too difficult to come up with a date for new episodes. The season could likely arrive in February 2024 if we’re looking at the previous premieres for both seasons 1 and 2, which both debuted at the start of 2021 and 2023, respectively.
But with Howey’s pregnancy thrown into the mix, that could delay things a bit, and it wouldn’t be the worst thing if the series returned during the summer when there’s a lull in content and fans are seeking out something to binge-watch and get invested in.
Either way, when Netflix makes an official decision, you’ll be the first to know as we’ll update this article accordingly!
Until then, you can gear up for the final season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Riverdale, and Firefly Lane!

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5 — Release Date Schedule for Episodes
It’s curtain call for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
The groundbreaking and whip-smart period comedy, which debuted in 2017—about a late ’50s housewife named Miriam “Midge” Maisel who sets out on a career as a comic defying all odds and expectations placed on her by society—is gearing up to enter its fifth and final season.
The beginning of the end for Amazon Prime Video’s long-running series will begin on Friday, April 14, 2023 with the final three episodes airing at once.
The remaining episodes—there will be a total of 9 in season 5—will premiere on a weekly basis.
Here’s the full episode schedule for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5:
- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5 Episode 1 – April 14, 2023
- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5 Episode 2 – April 14, 2023
- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5 Episode 3 – April 14, 2023
- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5 Episode 4 – April 21, 2023
- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5 Episode 5 – April 28, 2023
- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5 Episode 6 – May 5, 2023
- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5 Episode 7 – May 12, 2023
- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5 Episode 8 – May 19, 2023
- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5 Episode 9 – May 26, 2023
You can check out the new trailer for the upcoming season, dubbed “This is it, this is the big break,” below:
“I want a big life, I want to break every single rule there is,” Midge can be heard saying in the first few seconds of the trailer, setting the scene for what fans can expect from the last hurrah.
Scenes woven through the fast-paced trailer—though not faster than Midge’s dialogue—reveal that she’s achieved what she’s set out to as she signs autographs and Suzy gets properly fitted for a suit. They do face some setbacks, however, as we see Midge breaking down in the bathroom, Joel closing a door looking distraught, and Abe lamenting that no one who has ever accomplished anything of worth is ever happy.
While there’s sadly no Lenny Bruce sighting throughout the trailer, fans will be pleased to know that Milo Ventimiglia makes a return, though it’s unclear what role he’ll play in Midge’s life moving forward—and the train door closing on him is not a promising sign.
