Blake Lively's New Website: 5 Things You Can Buy From Preserve
From vegan hot fudge to leather messenger bags, here's what the actress has in store for us.
Blake Lively's highly anticipated lifestyle website, Preserve, has arrived. Launching one day before its expected date, the site gives off a spooky, dark vibe with its black-and-white color scheme. The homepage features an editor's letter from the actress herself, along with a ghost-like photo of Lively writing what we can assume is, uh, the editor's note.
"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," writes the Gossip Girl alum. "I’m no editor, no artisan, no expert. And certainly no arbiter of what you should buy, wear, or eat."
She continued her letter to describe Preserve as "part magazine, part e-commerce hub, part philanthropic endeavor and above all, a place to showcase the power of imagination, ingenuity, quality, and above all, people."
Instead of looking at it as a "new website," Ryan Reynolds' other half thinks of it as a "new street. A sort of greatest hits of 'Main Street, USA.'"
To help you get an idea of what she's offering on the site, we found five items worth noting.
1. Vegan Hot Fudge by Coops Microcreamery, which the site describes as "a warm cradle for ice cream," as well as "a blanket for bananas." Delicious. Not quite the preserved jams we had in mind, but we wouldn't mind taking two of these for $10.50 apiece.
2. With these Mr. and Mrs. Spoons from Milk & Honey ($25) featured on the site, it has us wondering if Lively and Reynolds use a pair of these hand-engraved his-and-her spoons while sharing a bowl of cereal. We can only imagine what it'd be like to sit across from Reynolds at breakfast time. Bonus: These also come in same-sex sets.
3. The Chip & Dip Platter from Oysteria isn't made out of just any clay; it's made completely out of Louisiana clay, which we assume is, uh, a pretty big deal. Also, this $92 plate is designed exclusively for Preserve, so get it while you can.
4. A black York Messenger bag from Sandast, priced at $280, is a quality leather bag, perfect for toting around the office.
5. For $2,000, you can own a World Marquee (a light-up world map that hangs on the wall) by Scott Coppersmith. Perfect for the ultimate wanderlust.
