This Is Your First Look at Simone Biles on the Set of Pretty Little Liars
Remember when Pretty Little Liars creator I. Marlene King extended an offer to one of the show’s biggest fans (who just so HAPPENS to be a five-medal-winning Olympic gymnast), Simone Biles, to visit the set?
Welp, it looks like she made good on that promise, as Simone shared via Instagram with this epic shot of her and the cast “sshhh”-ing the camera.

Visiting the show’s set in LA on Friday, the pint-sized Olympian also shared this video introducing herself to fans over on the PLL page.
“I’m meeting all the cast, and I get to watch some of them film!” she says in a gleeful tone that gives off an underlying message of “OMG PINCH ME!” (Not that she hasn’t met her fair share of stars — girl was seated front row next to Anna Wintour for NYFW, and you might also recall her epic meeting with crush Zac Efron.)
Hmmm. “Watch” some of them film, or help? (We totally smell a cameo).

From the looks of things, the cast was just as excited to have her on hand as she was to be there. “US gold medalist Simone Biles wasn’t the only one that was starstruck today,” the PLL-posted caption read.
Particularly excited was Shay Mitchell, who Simone inducted as the sixth honorary member of the final five.
She also spent a good amount of time with Keegan Allen, who acted as her tour guide during her visit, showing her on-set secrets like the “wall of A’s” (there’s a hidden “A” in just about every episode).
Better watch out, Zac — these two make a pretty cute pair! (PS: Can we TALK about that massive Louis? It’s bigger than her!)

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
