Blake Lively’s New Lifestyle Site

I did a quick drive-by on Blake Lively’s new “lifestyle” website called Preserve.us. Welp, that was a serious waste of time. I’m all for capitalism and entrepreneurship; have no issue with people getting paid. But where I draw the line is, celebrities going live with these websites (Gwyneth Paltrow and her idiotic GOOP site comes to mind) selling merchandise that is either far too expensive for the average person. Or loaded with products that can be bought at any supermarket, department store or my personal favorite, Bed, Bath and Beyond, for much less. Blake Lively’s site is full of inane ramblings, random over-used quotes, odd pictures and quite frankly a very depressing tone emanating from the home page….bizarre.

Then when you look further and go to the product prompt, there’s BBQ sauce mixed with jewelry, clothing, pillows and other items that visually, makes no damned sense. Just because you can do something, doesn’t always mean you should. I feel Ms. Lively should probably do what she does best and that’s walk red carpets, wear fabulously expensive designer clothes, cuddle up to that hunky bundle of goodness husband of hers and just be a TV and movie star. Lets face it, she’s not Kim K who can make a dollar out of 10 cents for doing nothing. But I’m sure she’ll do well selling her wares to other celebs and the wealthy who have disposable income to burn. After-all, they’re usually the ones who keep celebrity sites afloat anyway. I mean outside of a handful of star-struck fans but that’s another topic I’ll save for later.

Can I get a Thumbs up on this one!!!.

I’m on my way! WhooHoo!!

Well, I’ve finally done it, I’ve started my blog. I know that I need time to find my footing but at least this is a good start. As Skeeter told her soon to be boyfriend in The Help…which by the way was a wonderful movie, “I have plenty to say”. And yes indeed…I do! I don’t want just some run-of-the-mill blog with all sorts of moderation, censorship and the attitude of “I’ll just delete your comment if it offends me”…no! I want people to bring it on and put it out there. We’re adults and as an adult, you should be able to take it. No matter what it is, if someone needs to say it, then that’s why I started this journey…to allow people as well as myself, to have an avenue to get things off their chest.

Hopefully I will have many of you come along on my journey and no matter where it takes us, I feel it will be worth the price of the ticket.
