Good news everyone, Gwyneth Paltrow is launching a lifestyle website—because when life is as amazing as hers obviously is, it’s selfish to keep all those fabulous secrets to yourself.

The name of this potentially life-altering site is GOOP. Go ahead, say it out loud a few times—it’s infinitely worse sounding than the word blog. She could have gone with Gwyneth Paltrow's Blog. Or Gwyneth Blogrow. Or Gwyneth's Blog of Lovely Things I Get to Do and You Probably Won't Get to Do but Should Consider Doing. But GOOP?

While the site is still in it’s beginning stages, it promises to offer tips on how to Make, Go, Get, Do, Be, and See like Gwyneth so that we may become as awesome as Gwyneth and eventually get to hang out with Madonna.

In the place of said tips for now, Gwyneth offers up a short essay explaining how she has achieved such an enviable life:

“My life is good because I am not passive about it. I want to nourish what is real, and I want to do it without wasting time. I love to travel, to cook, to eat, to take care of my body and mind, to work hard. I love being a mother who has to overcome my bad qualities to be a good mother. I love being in spaces that are clean and feel nice.”

And a few tips before she runs off to do a 40-minute cardio-dance routine or cook a pizza in the wood-burning pizza oven she keeps in her garden:

“Make your life good. Invest in what's real. Cook a meal for someone you love. Pause before reacting. Clean out your space. Read something beautiful. Treat yourself to something. Go to a city you've never been to. Learn something new. Don't be lazy. Workout and stick with it. GOOP. Make it great."

Thanks for looking out for us, Gwyneth!
