This summer, our favorite buxom blonde bombshell, Blake Lively, said that Gossip Girl certainly wasn’t perfect. It seems she’s more than happy to have have settled down with mega-hunk Ryan Reynolds and their genetically-endowed baby.

Here are 10 takeaways from our favorite CW series.

You know you love me…. xoxo

Nothing hurts more than a broken heart.

Lovesick is the worst kind of sick.


Sometimes, you just need your best friend.


Or a good shoulder to lean on.

If you’re lucky, it might be the shoulder of Chuck Bass.


Remember that life comes one day at a time.

From careers to relationships, it’s always wise to take it day by day.


Stockings are sexy.

Remember Blair’s Falke stockings? You know how much Chuck adored them.


You deserve the world.


New York is magical.

There’s a reason it’s lovingly deemed the greatest city in the world.


It’s never too early for champagne.

“Too much of anything is bad, but too much champagne is just right…”


Words are powerful.

Particularly, three words strung together.


Never underestimate the power of a little mystery.
