Hailing from the crux of the millennial generation, Blake Lively has time and again flaunted the progressive verve with her up-to-date takes despite being old-school. Akin to Ryan Reynolds, her social feed has been rooted in moments of personal and professional success but with a delightful tinge of A1 humor on every serve. While her posts frequently also feature special shout-outs for her pals, this time, the token of appreciation was for Gen Z.

In fact, the gesture of praise also had a solid reason for Blake Lively and the cause might just have made the star one among us.

In this hour of digital frenzy, social media has become the one-stop solution for everything. Hence, when Gen Z came to Blake Lively’s rescue to find her the “delicious places” for her feast indulgence, the actress exhibited great delight in thanking her fans for bringing the place to her attention. The Gossip Girl alum took to her Instagram story to showcase a box full of cinnamon buns from The Hive. She cheered on the “Gen Z foodies” for posting the place so that she could “stalk” and “eat them”.

Along with the impromptu shout-out, Lively also shared a word of wisdom before indulging in the culinary spree. She stressed the importance of a “balanced breakfast” while working “long hours”. Although it is difficult to vouch for a box full of cinnamon buns to be the ideal “balanced breakfast”, one thing that is for sure is that The Hive could become her next hotspot for these “balanced” treats. Especially since she has given her green light to them deserving “their own religion”.

Recently, when Lively’s longtime pal, America Ferrera, received the SeeHer honor at the Critics’ Choice Awards, Lively was quick to share her acceptance speech on her Instagram story. She even traveled the extra mile to co-host an event in New York City to raise the glasses for her success. Adapting to the tone of Barbie, she displayed an all-pink palette. However, this was not the only occasion, either.

During Beyoncé’s Renaissance premiere party, Lively not only donned the shimmery robe for the event but also left a star for the songstress on her social. Of course, it had the touch of her witty take but was teeming with heartfelt wishes. However, now that Lively has opened the chapter of drawing inspiration from Gen Z habits, it is safe to say that more secret food spots and a buzz of shout-outs will await shortly.
