Blake Lively Launches Lifestyle Website Preserve!

Published

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! 

What did you think? Are you a Blake Lively fan? Do you like her new lifestyle site?

'Cruel Summer' Renewed for a Second Season at Freeform Ahead of Finale

Cruel Summer may be airing its season finale tonight, but fans can already look forward to more spine-tingling thrills. 

Freeform has picked up the psychological drama for a second season, according to TVLine

“Renewing Cruel Summer for a Season 2 was an easy decision,” Freeform President Tara Duncan said.

“It’s the biggest series debut in Freeform’s history and the audience response has been overwhelmingly positive. [Executive producers] Jessica [Biel], Michelle [Purple] and [showrunner] Tia [Napolitano] did a phenomenal job telling an addictive story that’s tapped into the cultural zeitgeist. I’m excited to see where they take the series next,” she added.

Napolitano also noted: “Collaborating with Iron Ocean, our dedicated crew, charismatic cast, and our partners at Freeform and eOne has been the best first showrunning experience I could ask for. I am beyond grateful and excited by the amazing fan response to our show! Continuing to bottle Cruel Summer magic for a Season 2 is an absolute dream come true.”

The freshman drama stars Olivia Holt (Kate Wallis) and Chiara Aurelia (Jeanette Turner) whose worlds collide when Kate goes missing and later accuses Jeanette of knowing who kept her captive and not telling the police. Jeanette is adamant that she never saw Kate in captivity. The story is told over three timeliness in 1993, 1994, and 1995. 

The mystery is set to be resolved in tonight’s finale.

Per Deadline, Biel revealed that the mystery could return with a new story and the same characters or feature a new cast of characters.

2021-2022 TV Schedule: Find Out Which Shows Have Been Canceled or Renewed

We’re entering the season of refreshing the page to see if your favorite shows have been renewed for the upcoming 2021-2022 TV season.

Since COVID-19 affected production on many shows and delayed their premieres, the criteria for what gets the green light and what ends up on the chopping block has become more stringent this go-around.

As usual, The CW gave an early renewal for most of their shows including Nancy Drew, Riverdale, Walker, Batwoman, and more. 

In a shocking twist, Grey’s Anatomy has been renewed for season 18 along with sibling series Station 19. 

Unfortunately, not every show shared the same fate as Prodigal Son on FOX was given the ax after two seasons.
