Organization fans know that there are endless ways to arrange a bathroom vanity. You can store things in bins, place them on lazy Susans, line them up in rainbow order — the list goes on and on. The problem is, if you’re working with hundreds of items, even the tidiest of systems might make it difficult to find the products you need at the end of a night. Fortunately for beauty fanatics, Lucy Hale just posted a genius solution to those dealing with that conundrum. Her skin care organization idea? It involves a label maker — but probably not the way you’d expect.

While you’re likely used to seeing The Home Edit team slap labels on cute baskets and clear boxes, Hale’s storage hack is a bit different. Instead of going the traditional route, the actor used a portable label maker to make stickers for the products themselves, thereby taking any guesswork out of your daily routines.

In an Instagram story on Jan. 18, the 31-year-old shared her idea, showing off a picture of a Biologique Recherche serum with her homemade labels. The bottle featured two stickers — one that said “final step” and another that read “am or pm.” “We’ve reached this step of adulthood *labeling*” Hale joked in the post.

A friend who once met Lucy Hale had two things to say about her. One: she’s really nice. Two: she’s super, super fit. Apparently, girlfriend is toned as hell.

“Oh that’s really nice to hear,” Hale says, genuinely chuffed, when I tell her this down the phone to Los Angeles, where she’s relaxing at home.

It’s clear that exercise matters to Hale, the recent star of horror movie Truth or Dare (out on DVD on August 15). So much so that she works out every single day.

“I’m one of the weirdos in the world that genuinely likes working out, not from a physical perspective, more from a mental aspect,” the 29-year-old explains.

“It’s a daily part of what I do. I work with a trainer and that will be an hour-long session, or I’ll do 45-minute spin classes or Pilates classes. It’s not a crazy amount, just a little bit every day.”

Somewhat unexpectedly, the 157-centimetre fitness fiend says the workout she finds most challenging is yoga.

Lucy Hale is starring in a new survival-thriller called “Borrego,” which started production earlier this month. In the film, Hale plays the role of a young botanist named Elly, fighting for her survival.

The description reads, “The film will begin with Elly relocating to a small desert town to study an invasive plant species. While out on research, she comes to the aid of a downed ultralight plane only to find herself taken captive by an inexperienced drug mule, played by Leynar Gómez.”

Hale frequently stars in suspenseful-horror films, and her most recent was “Fantasy Island,” a twisted retelling based on the original television series. Hale also starred in the 2018 film “Truth or Dare” as Olivia Barron, and as Sherrie in “Scream 4.”

“Borrego” will hope to tackle several topics while keeping viewers at the edge of their seats. The story involves drug trafficking and its human victims, as well as human trafficking and violence against women. It’s a lot for one thriller to tackle, but could help more viewers relate to Hale’s character and add to the suspense.

The studio added, “Gómez’ character forces Elly, out of desperation, to lead a trek across the sweltering desert to his drop. The local sheriff, played by Nicholas Gonzalez, is drawn into the hunt as his rebellious daughter, Alex (Olivia Trujillo), sets out to find the missing botanist, all while being pursued by the local drug receiver, played by Jorge A. Jiménez.”

The movie is based on Jesse Harris’ critically acclaimed short film, “Wind in the Night.” That film focuses on a man protecting his family as he struggles with moral complications after the Mexican cartel orders him to become a drug receiver in America. Fans of the genre are encouraged to watch that short-film ahead of “Borrego,” to get a sense of the upcoming film’s style and direction.

Brothers Damiano and Tiziano Tucci of Tucci & Company are producing “Boreggo,” and hope to release the film in 2021. Lucy Hale, known best for her role in Freeform’s “Pretty Little Liars” series, will be working alongside Tucci & Co. as an executive producer to bring Harris’ script to the big-screen. “Borrego” will be Tucci & Company’s second project filmed during the current health crisis.

The studio stopped short of announcing a release date at this time, and we don’t have a first-look trailer at the film yet, but Hale fans will want to keep this film on their radar. Hale is also set to star in Brian Petsos’ comedy-drama “Big Gold Brick” with Megan Fox and Oscar Isaac, as well as Peter Hutchings’ rom-com “The Hating Game” with Gina Torres and Yasha Jackson.

Lucy Hale is a dog person. The actress and singer is often photographed walking her 4-year-old Maltipoo, Elvis, around town and on set. Her Instagram bio consists of only two words: Elvis’ mama. “I know it sounds ridiculous, but he’s my soulmate,” Hale tells Woman’s Day. “He’s my best friend; I truly don’t know what I would do without him.” And it’s the love Hale has for her fur-baby that propelled her to partner with Purina and get involved with the Purple Leash Project, an campaign that works to make domestic abuse shelters pet-friendly and more welcoming to pet owners in need of refuge.

Domestic abuse and intimate partner violence are major issues in the United States. On average, around 20 people are physically abused by an intimate partner per minute in the U.S., according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. One in three women and one in four men have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner. And on any given day, more than 20,000 phone calls are made to domestic violence hotlines nationwide. “I feel like a lot of people don’t realize these statistics,” Hale says. “We probably know many people in our lives that go through this.”

One factor in whether or not a victim of domestic abuse will leave the relationship is if they’re allowed to bring their pet with them. Only 10 percent of domestic abuse shelters across the nation accept pets, according to the Purple Leash Project, and 48 percent of people will stay in an abusive situation or household because of their pets. “That struck a chord with me because I’m obsessed with my dog, and I know that I couldn’t ever be separated from him,” Hale says.

Good-girl roles have been a staple throughout Lucy Hale’s career, from Aria Montgomery on Pretty Little Liars to the titular character on the CW’s Katy Keene. In reality, though, the 31-year-old actress isn’t like the doe-eyed young women she often plays onscreen (although her eyes are startlingly large, even when seen via pixelated box on a Zoom call). As a self-proclaimed “open book”, Hale is more outspoken than her characters, happy to talk about taboo topics like white privilege, sex, and birth control. The star is clearly confident about making decisions that impact her future, and as she tells HelloGiggles, she wants to help other women feel empowered to do the same—especially when it comes to contraception.

“A lot of women go through their lives wanting to make choices about birth control, but they just don’t know where to begin,” Hale, who recently partnered with pharmaceutical company Bayer, says over a Zoom call in August. “I gladly take on the role of getting this conversation started for them. Maybe seeing one of my Instagram posts or hearing me talk about this will encourage them to make really amazing, positive decisions for themselves.”

Lucy Hale is always on the go.

After beginning her day with a cup of coffee and a journaling session, “[my dog], Elvis, and I usually go for a hike,” the actress, 31, says exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly. “Being outside and in nature is one of my favorite things about living in Los Angeles.”

But hitting the trails isn’t the only active thing she does in a day. The Pretty Little Liars alum also hits her Peloton treadmill, which “I love,” she admits. “It came in handy during quarantine.”

According to the A Nice Girl Like You star, staying in shape is something that’s always been important to her.

“I’m one of the weirdos in the world that genuinely likes working out, not from a physical perspective, more from a mental aspect,” the songstress told Harper’s Bazaar Australia in 2018. “It’s a daily part of what I do.”

A large chunk of Hale’s day is dedicated to working too. That means doing press interviews via Zoom, which she says isn’t so bad. “Press from home means you only need to dress up from the waist up,” Hale jokes.

And things are only getting busier for the Tennessee native. Just weeks after her latest show, Katy Keene, was canceled after one season, it was announced that she’ll be starring in and serving as an executive producer for Jesse Harris’ survival thriller, Borrego.

“I knew from the second I read Borrego that I needed to be a part of [Harris’] tale of survival,” Hale shared to Instagram upon the news reveal, before adding that she was “so excited” to start filming.

Katy Keene star Lucy Hale has revealed what she’ll miss most about starring in the short-lived Riverdale spin-off.

The new series lands on BBC iPlayer this weekend, following the story of would-be fashion designer Katy Keene (Hale) as she tries to make a name for herself in New York City.

The show recently finished airing in the United States, where its original broadcaster The CW announced it had been cancelled after a single season.

At a Q&A event about Katy Keene’s iPlayer debut, Hale explained to RadioTimes.com and other press why the role meant so much to her.

In case you’re wondering just how awkward the audition process was for 50 Shades of Gray, apparently the answer is very. Like…verrrrrrrrry. Turns out Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale auditioned for the part of Anastasia Steele and recently described it as truly mortifying.

“I was very young,” she told The Associated Press. “It had to have been, not 10 years ago, it was a while ago, and I was, like, mortified.” She went on to explain that while the audition wasn’t “actual scenes from the movie,” she did have to read a “very sexually forward monologue.”

“I didn’t really even know what I was saying in the audition, like I didn’t understand” she said. “I was a little naive about it all … It was good for me because it scared the crap out of me to do an audition like that.”

Katy Keene is set to air the UK for the first time as the series drops on BBC iPlayer later this month – after it was revealed it had been cancelled after one series.

The Riverdale spin-off based on the series of Archie comics has already aired in America on CW, however it is yet to be shown over in the UK.

Katy Keene follows the lives of four New Yorkers each with dreams to make it big in the worlds of fashion, Broadway, music and the arts.

A tearful Lucy Hale said she was heartbroken after her comedy-drama series Katy Keene was cancelled after one season.

The actress, 31, played an aspiring New York City fashion designer in the show, which was a spin-off from teen drama Riverdale.

Network The CW announced it would not be coming back for a second season amid reports of poor viewing figures.

A devastated Hale, best known for starring in TV mystery thriller Pretty Little Liars, shared a video to Instagram in response to the news, saying she was a “blubbering mess”.

The weeping actress said: “I have struggled all day with what I wanted to say about this or if I shouldn’t say anything or… nothing felt right, I didn’t just want to post a picture or a caption because nothing would do justice to how I feel about Katy Keene or how I feel about the people involved with it.

“Truly, one of the highlights of my life. Just such a  joy from top to bottom.”

Explaining the show had not been picked up for a second season, Hale said she had experienced similar disappointments during her career but “this is a bad one”.

I’m sorry but its better than Riverdale and its still going!

The CW is not too keen on Katy Keene.

On Thursday, the network weighed in on the Riverdale spin-off as the only one of its series with its fate still outstanding. Katy Keene, which stars Lucy Hale as the titular aspiring fashion designer, has become the network’s only cancellation, after its fellow freshman series Batwoman and Nancy Drew were renewed back in January.

Warner. Bros. Television is still shopping for a potential new home. After completing its first season, Katy Keene began streaming on HBO Max, so the new WarnerMedia platform could be the most promising option for the show to continue on.

Co-created by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Michael Grassi, Katy Keene seemed a sure thing for the CW before its premiere, given its ties to network hit Riverdale. It even featured former Riverdale star Ashleigh Murray reprising her role as Josie, as one of the series’ aspiring dreamers trying to make it big in New York City. Despite this and Hale’s star power, the series consistently drew modest ratings.

While Riverdale and another Archie Comics-inspired series, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, trade more in noir and horror tropes, Katy Keene deliberately positioned itself as more aspirational and optimistic than those shows. “Katy Keene is stepping out of the noir shadows of Riverdale and into the spotlight,” Grassi previously told EW. “We’re entering worlds like fashion, music, Broadway, drag. It’s a show about dreamers.”

“It felt to me like this could be a more romantic, optimistic, aspirational show, and Katy Keene could be the character that anchored it,” Aguirre-Sacasa added.

Now they could all use some of Katy’s optimism as the series faces an uncertain future.
