The Best of Gossip Girl

Tonight was the last night of Gossip Girl. The show has been a part of my life for 6 whole years! It's very sad to say goodbye to the characters that I've grown to love. Over the years, there has been so many schemes, drama and of course endless fashion and high society balls. 

This post is a special "goodbye" to Gossip Girl!

Let's get started with The Best of Gossip Girl!

Things I learned from Gossip Girl
  • “Tights are not pants.”-B
  • “No headbands in college.”-DH
  • “They say blood is thicker than water, but its a lot harder to clean up when it spills.”-GG
  • Thanksgiving is the best holiday.
  • “But the past is always with us, just waiting to mess up the present.”-GG
  • “The faster you rise, the harder you fall.”-GG
  • “Destiny is for losers. Its just a stupid excuse to wait for things to happen instead of making them happen.”-B
  • “What you least expect is right in front of you waiting to change everything forever, whether you want to or not.”-GG
  • “Cinderella did not google Prince Charming.”-S
  • “A hot lifeguard is like kleenex, use once then throw away.”-B
  • “No matter the truth, people see what they want to see.”-GG
  • “The road of life is long and winding, so its important to mark the milestones.”-GG
  • “A man with nothing to live for, is capable of anything.“-CB
  • “You don’t let people tell you who you are, you show them.”-S
  • “If two people are meant to be together, eventually they’ll find their way back.”-CB
  • You don’t need anybody in your life that doesn’t want to be there.
  • Don’t be a stop along the way, be a destination.
  • “Too bad no one told him: you can’t save a damsel if she loves her distress.” -GG
  • “Sometimes you need to step outside, clear your head and remind yourself of who you are. And where you wanna be. And sometimes you have to venture outside your world in order to find yourself.” - GG
  • “What’s the difference between gossip and scandal? So glad you asked. Anyone can commit a minor indiscretion and generate a day’s worth of buzz, but in order for gossip to birth a true scandal it requires the right person to be in the wrong place. Take one ‘it’ girl on a pedestal, add a crowd eager to see her fall, and give them the means to knock her down.” - GG
  • “Forget a grand entrance. Everyone knows that it’s the exit they’ll remember.” - GG
  • “But our most dangerous enemies are the ones we never knew we had.” - GG

My Memories
Since watching Gossip Girl, I've fallen in love with New York City.

When I had the opportunity to travel for Teen Vogue I jumped at the chance to visit the set of my favorite show! I also went on this great tour (Information at the end of this post) that took me to great Gossip Girl hot spots all over the city.

I went to the set of Gossip Girl, it was my last day in the city before a short flight then a 8 hour drive home. I grabbed my houndstooth jacket (a new purchase while in NYC), my camera and I headed on a walk. I spoke to some VIP at the set, and they escorted me over to speak to lots of lovely people. I met Ed Westwick, Leighton Meester (she even follows me on Twitter!) and so many others. This was October 24th, 2011. I actually had the privilege of being in the background of an episode! I was beyond delighted.

My second visit to the set was in September 2012. It wasn't as wonderful as the first visit, but I enjoyed running into Kelly Rutherford and Matthew Settle! I had photos with them and had a nice little chat. They are  marvelous people!

My Gossip Girl collection is one that I am proud of! I own  a lot of the clothing from Gossip Girl! Some, has been sold simply because it didn't fit me properly.

My collection has included:
Blair's Milly Bow Blouse
Serena's Alexander Wang Studded Tunic
Blair's Green and White Milly Dress

Here's my advice. Have a little faith, and if that doesn't work, have a lot of mimosas. - Blair Waldorf
A hot lifeguard is like kleenex! Use once and throw away. You couldn't ask for a better rebound! - Blair Waldorf

Series Finale Episode Photos and Review
The series finale did not disappoint. However sad I might be to see the show end, the final episode made me happy. It was a 2 hour special, it started with a one hour special look at the past 6 years with interviews from the cast. It was really special! Gossip Girl has been such a huge influence on my life, I can't imagine what I'm going to do on Monday nights now!

The characters in this hit TV show have changed so much and have grown into adults.
They started off as privileged, rich high schoolers who love the scheme, does anyone else remember nairtinis? Gossip Girl remained unknown until now. Gossip Girl shockingly ended up being

The high schoolers grew up, have their own careers and have found happiness and are still all involved in each others lives.

Blair and Chuck got married, and had a beautiful son, Henry.
Serena and Dan put aside their differences, focused on their love and got married.
Georgina and Jack Bass get together.
Dan is Gossip Girl! Or should I say Gossip Guy.
Nate is hugely successful.
A happy, fairytale ending.

Goodbye Gossip Girl! I'll miss watching you on Monday nights, and visiting the set.

You know you love me.
