Blake Lively is like a young Gwyneth Paltrow in training!
The Gossip Girl actress has had a pretty similar career to that of the Goop mistress!
She's acted in some big blockbusters, had a main role in a superhero movie next to her hubby Ryan Reynolds, and now she's starting a lifestyle blog that's just like Gwynnie's!
Well, it's not exactly the same.
There are many differences between Blake and Gwyneth's — some good, some bad and we're here to break it down for you!
1. What they both have to offer
Goop and Preserve have the same thing to offer their readers. Both supply yummy recipes, gifts to purchase for yourself or others, philanthropic endeavors for those who are interested in charities, and blogs written from themselves!
It's a tie for this round!
2. Items for sale!
Both websites offer a number of items for purchase. From food to clothes to shot glasses, you name it! However, the items offered on Blake's website are definitely much more affordable to the average Joe. Plus, she offers items from mom and pop shops as opposed to expensive designer items!
Tell us, Gwynnie, who has money for a $215.00 oversized white button up??
Both sites call attention to exceptional charities. Preserve has details about partnering up with Covenant House which helps out homeless teens. Goop provides links about charities that helps kids in school. While they both support different charities, they're both doing good in this world and urging others to help those in need!
It's a win for both!
4. Website Design
It all comes down to the color scheme of their website. Both are COMPLETE opposites. While Gwyneth's Goop is cleaner looking with all of the white and grey, Blake's Preserve is a lot more earthy and dark!
We're going to have to go with Gwyneth this round. While the earthy, Southern feel is a little more inviting Goop is a bit easier to read and navigate.
5. Saving or "PRESERVING" items
Let's be real, Pinterest serves its main purpose as a convenient bookmarking site for DIYs, wedding ideas and delicious recipes. While both Goop and Preserve offer recipes for their readers, Blake's website takes it one step further and allows its users to "preserve" whatever it is they're interested in. Whereas Gwyneth's only gives its readers the option to view the recipe and pin or share it to a secondary site!
Way to go the extra mile and make it more convenient for your users! Preserve wins this one AND it gets a bonus point for good use of it's website name!
