In 2015, A-list celeb status isn’t achieved by getting your picture in the tabloids. Today, you know you’ve made it when you have your own lifestyle website. First there was Gwyneth, then came Ellen Degeneres, Reese Witherspoon and Julianne Hough. The trend became such a big deal that Stephen Colbert even made a hilarious spoof of the phenomenon. So it should come as no surprise that Vanessa Hudgens (AKA the most boho celeb that ever was) has jumped on the bandwagon.
The 27-year-old actress just launched the site Astral & Opal. It’s full of stories focusing on things like how to DIY a green tea face mask, take a social media cleanse and dress like Janis Joplin, and it feels like this site could definitely be the unofficial blog + lifestyle bible for Coachella-ites (Coachella-ettes? We’re still working on that one). Unlike Gwyneth’s Goop or Blake’s site Preserve (RIP), Vanessa’s site doesn’t include an e-commerce branch as of now, but we’re guessing it won’t be long until you’re able to throw leather fringed bags, crystal necklaces and yoga mats in your cart.
In an introductory letter, Vanessa writes, “I love surfing the web but nothing ever stuck with me. So, I thought it was time to create the site I needed in my life. As for me, I believe that life is as you make it. I want to feel good, look good and live a colorful life full of adventure. You are in the driver’s seat, on an open road and only get one lifetime to make it count. We gotta live it to the fullest! I hope Astral & Opal guides you to inspiration, passion, wisdom and makes your world a little more colorful.”
Digging a little deeper into the site’s name,“astral” is often defined as a nonphysical realm of existence and opal is a multicolored gemstone commonly used for luck on new ventures. And just like that, Vanessa seems to have out boho-ed herself.
