Blake Lively’s Lifestyle Website ‘Preserve’ Needs to Be ‘Gossip Girl’ Part 2
Sorry, Gwyneth Paltrow, but there's about to be a new actress-turned-website-creator in Hollywood. The lifestyle site Blake Lively has been talking about for months finally got a launch date — and it's sooner than you might think. E! News reports that Blake Lively's website is launching next week and will be called "Preserve." Why must these sites sound like they're about a jar of jelly? (GOOP? Preserve?) Anyway, it's not about fruit preserves. Reportedly, it will be an online marketplace focused on telling stories. The source tells E!,
Preserve will focus on artisans and products, many hand-made one-of-a-kind items all selected by Blake. Items will be available for purchase through the site. Preserve is all about story-telling through video. Blake will be in some of these videos.
Sounds similar to Lauren Conrad's The Little Market project, where she teams up with artisan groups across the globe to showcase and sell their handmade goods. But regardless, any project that supports artists around the world is a great thing. Too bad Taylor Swift's needlepoints won't be available on Lively's site. Although they certainly are handmade and one-of-a-kind.
Even though we now know what to expect from the site, it's still fun to imagine the possibilities of what she could post. Here's a list of alternate ideas for Lively's website:
Gossip Girl: Part 2
Thanks to her show, she already knows all about gossip websites. Reading about Hollywood secrets would be far more interesting than the lives of high schoolers. Of course she'd sign each post "You know you love me. XOXO, B"
Baby Pics of Ryan Reynolds
Lively already confessed to a secret Pinterest board with pics of her husband. Why not share his baby photos? She'd win at #TBT every week since they're guaranteed to be adorable.
Ryan & Cute Animals
Scratch that, they don't even have to be baby photos. Animals are equally adorable. Ones like this from the couple's joint Instagram account would suffice.
Bey-hind The Scenes of This Friendship
Apparently she and Beyoncé are besties. More photos, please! That way we can all live vicariously through their perfect friendship.
Her Best Recipes
She told Elle Decor that the kitchen is the most important part of her home. Lively loves cooking and baking, so why not share her recipes with the world?
Set Secrets From The New Traveling Pants Movie
As if the news of a third Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie wasn't enough, fans would explode if Lively posted behind-the-scenes videos.
Okay, chances are she won't post any these things on Preserve. But Blake, if the launch is a huge success, you can totally borrow these ideas for your next online endeavor!
