Blake Lively Launches Lifestyle Website Preserve!

Published

on

Move over Gwyneth, Blake is taking the reigns!

Blake Lively’s highly anticipated lifestyle site, Preserve, has finally launched!

BLAKE-LIVELY-EDITOR

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. 

You can check out the site at www.preserve.us. Let’s preserve our story!

TV Show Catch Up: ‘Good Place’ Ending After Season 4, ‘Dead to Me’ Renewed

Published

on

The good Place Somewhere Else

In this week’s TV catch up, we’re looking back at all the TV show news you may have missed!

 

“The Good Place” to End After Season 4

That’s it. We’ve finally arrived in the Bad Place and it’s worse than we could have ever imagined. NBC’s beloved and genius sitcom “The Good Place” will end after the fourth season which premieres this fall. Here’s what creator Mike Schur had to say about it:

“After The Good Place was picked up for season two, the writing staff and I began to map out, as best we could, the trajectory of the show. Given the ideas we wanted to explore, and the pace at which we wanted to present those ideas, I began to feel like four seasons—just over 50 episodes—was the right lifespan. At times over the past few years we’ve been tempted to go beyond four seasons, but mostly because making this show is a rare, creatively fulfilling joy, and at the end of the day, we don’t want to tread water just because the water is so warm and pleasant. As such, the upcoming fourth season will be our last.”

 

“Dead To Me” Gets Second Season Pick Up

Need more of Thelma and Louise, er, Jen and Judy, in your life? No worries. Netflix just green-lit the second season of the twisted dark comedy, “Dead to Me.” The network did not announce a premiere date so we’ll just be patiently waiting and refreshing our Netflix app daily.

 

Jussie Smollett is Out for the Final Season of “Empire”

Jussie Smollett will not be reprising his role as Jamal Lyon’s in the final season of “Empire.” Show co-creator Lee Daniels revealed the news after Variety reported that writers were planning to bring Jamal back in the latter half of the sixth season. Daniels wrote “This is not factual. Jussie will NOT be returning to Empire” on Twitter.

 

OG “Veronica Mars” Heads to Hulu

If you’re planning on catching up on old “Veronica Mars” episodes before the new and anticipated limited series revival, Hulu is here to help. The streaming service will add the first three seasons on Monday, July 1st. That gives you about three weeks to binge watch the episodes before the revival drops on Friday, July 26. Happy binge-ing.

 

“The Red Line” is Cancelled

Season one is “The Red Line’s” final stop. CBS canceled the show after just one low-rated season.

“[The show] did not get picked up for a second season, so it will exist as an elegant novel,” co-showrunner Sunil Nayar said at the ATX Television Festival.

19 Things We Learned from the Jonas Brothers Documentary “Chasing Happiness”

Published

on

They were never meant to get out of Jersey, but thank god they did.

The Jonas Brothers reunion is the most unexpected reunion of 2019 but it’s one we’re most grateful for.

The world is a better place when Kevin, Nick and Joe are not only getting along but making sweet music together.

The Bros aren’t holding anything back in their tell-all documentary, Chasing Happiness, which dropped on Amazon Prime on June 4th.

They air everything out from their humble beginnings to their rapid rise to fame and the eventual breakup of 2013.

it also sheds light on their second chance as a band and how their journey made their comeback stronger than ever.

Though there’s plenty of interesting tidbits in the documentary (plenty of which I’ll get to below), I think the biggest takeaway is most likely, the inspiration behind the documentary’s title: “You spend so much time chasing happiness and the thing you think will bring you joy never realizing it’s in there all along.”

Nick Jonas figured out the secret of life.

17 Shocking Cliffhangers That Wrapped Up the Spring 2019 TV Season

Published

Superstore Cliffhanger

Most of us are on a “love to hate” basis with cliffhangers.

We love them because they’re exciting and leave us with countless possibilities of what’s to come for our favorite shows and characters.

Yet, we hate them because they usually leave us hanging for a few solid months.

If done right, a cliffhanger leaves you feeling breathless, confused, and screaming at the screen at the top of your lungs. .

A thousand thoughts race through our minds: what happens next? Who died? Who killed who? Who is going to survive? What’s the meaning of life?

Yes, waiting approximately four months to see the outcome of a cliffhanger is borderline unbearable (and it’s even worse if a show has a midseason return date), but without cliffhangers there’d be nothing to look forward to and nothing to keep us invested.
