The 23-year-old The Perfectionistsactress caught up with US Weekly at the event, and opened up about how she personally found out that her Pretty Little Liars co-star Shay Mitchell was pregnant with her first child.

“She kept it very, very, very, very secret,” Sasha revealed. “We [the PLL stars] knew that she was trying, but we weren’t sure until she told us.”

She added that Shay actually told them all in a “pretty private way. We all knew at the same time.”

“I’ve seen her go through all these different stages and there was a time where she didn’t even think she wanted kids,” Sashacontinued. “So to be at this point and how excited she is, she’s going to be such a good mom.”

“She’s always been so independent and so strong and confident and I think that’s exactly what she is going to bring to the table with her kids,” she added about Shay. “I think it’s so special and she’s just got such a big heart so that baby is loved already.”

Baby Gender Reveal

Is it a boy? Is it a girl? What did you guess, and was your guessing right? Watch Shay’s latest YouTube video tom find out the answer to these questions.

Shay wanted to surprise Matte with a gender reveal that would keep him guessing, but it was a surprise for her too – so they left it up to Shay’s assistant Liz to do the planning. They saw a lot of gender reveals that involved pink and blue cake and balloons, but thought a touch of drama would really set this one apart from the rest…. So what do you think? Boy or girl??

There is something in the oven and it’s not my pizza!!! WOW… It’s kind of surreal processing the fact that another human is growing inside of you. It’s exciting, nerve-racking, difficult and emotional all at the same time. Everyone waits for the right time to make the announcement and for me it wasn’t until I couldn’t hide it anymore and was tired of wearing over sized sweatshirts. We’re beyond excited and looking forward to starting a family. I’ve learned so much about myself and parenthood over the past 6 months, and feel like I haven’t even scratched the surface! It’s going to be a wild ride!!

Talking beauty with Shay Mitchell

Talking beauty with Shay Mitchell

She has 24 million Instagram followers, almost 4 million YouTube subscribers and another 3 million or so Twitter fans. But sometimes Shay Mitchell just wants a break. With an upcoming role in Hulu’s Dollface, the former Pretty Little Liars star (and mega beauty influencer) shares how she stays balanced and pursues her dreams.

I didn’t always want to be an actress. I never took drama or any of that in high school or elementary—nothing. When I was younger, I wanted to be a marine biologist. I realized that wasn’t the career path I was meant for when I went scuba diving for the first time at 12 and I was terrified of the ocean. At 19, I decided acting is what I wanted to do, after coming back to Canada from living in Bangkok. I’d tried modeling, but it wasn’t for me—I enjoy food too much. I did enjoy the traveling aspect of modeling, and I loved the community that it built and being able to work with a lot of people to get the shot. I realized I could do that with acting and not have to fit into a size 0, so I startd going down the road, and I booked Pretty Little Liars. I was on that show for seven years.

When I was playing Emily [on PLL], I was a completely different person than her. She had flats and only flats in her wardrove. But when I was playing Peach from You, the majority of her wardrobe was from my own closet, though my hair was a little bit more polished than what it would normally be. Obviously, You is super creepy just because it’s so relevant. It’s really easy to stalk somebody when you just have to follow their social media postings. There are safety precautions that you can take. I mean, knock on wood, nothing has ever crossed the line for me, but I’m very careful. If you post about where you are, people are probably going to come. I always post a few hours after I’ve left. That’s something everybody should do, celebrity or not, lots of followers or not.

I scout most of my glam squad on Instagram. Actually, I first saw Patrick Ta’s work on Instagram, and we had a trial where he came and did my makeup for a job. Now I joke with Patrick: I’m like, “I started you.” I’m kidding, but not. For me, getting ready for an event, most of the time, is more fun than the actual event. Being able to work with a team I feel comfortable with is huge. Back in the day, when I didn’t have a choice, it was a little but more difficult. I have a darker complexion, and I had trouble finding concealers and foundations that worked for me. I would make up my own concoction and take the dark-pigmented stuff and mix it with lighter ones to get my shade. Now there are more options, and I’m working with the best of the best, so I’m not scared to try new things.

I don’t color my hair—that’s where wigs come in. I dyed my hair platinum, and it just wasn’t a good look. My hair broke off and went brassy really quickly. It took a long time to get back to normal. But I do think I’m more experimental now than I was back in my 20s. Now i’m just like, “Why not? It’s just makeup. You can take it off.”

001~265.jpg 002~250.jpg 003~224.jpg 001~265.jpg 002~250.jpg

When it’s up to me, my hair is what it is when I come out of the shower, and then I tend to just have really light makeup on. Skin care is my number one thing. To have good makeupm you need to have  a good canvas to start with. I take off my makeup with micellar water to really get it all off. Undereye cream is crucial—there’s nothing worse than having dryness underneath your eyes. When I do at-home beauty spa days, I fill up a big bowl of hot water and add essential oils, like lavender, and steam my face. If I want to wake up a little bit in the morning, I’ll use citrus oil. And if I have a shoot where I need even more of a wake-up, I’ll put my whole face in a bowl of ice water. It’s really good to depuff your skin.

I never go anywhere without my phone. Because if I were to go on a hike and this double rainbow shows up, I’d have to capture it. just for memory’s sake. But I think it’s important to know when to shut off. You need to be aware that when you look at Instagram what you’re looking at is a highlight reel, not real life. My Instagram feed is super curated—not for anyone else, just for me—but if you go to my Story, I’m taking you behind the scenes of everything. We’re all going through one thing or another, so we don’t need to pretend everything is perfect and rainbows. It gets a little cloudy sometimes, but that’s fine.

I found this little girl online who says “JOMO [joy of missing out],” the opposite of FOMO [fear of missing out]. That’s what I have every day of my life now. I see people going to these amazing parties and these amazing events, and I’m just happy to be watching it from my bed, hanging out with friends, watching Chef’s Table, and eating popcorn.Because when you’re having the most fun, you’re not posting about it. You’re living the moment.

Shay Mitchell Just Designed a Suitcase That’ll Tell You If Your Luggage Is Over the Weight Limit

Shay Mitchell Just Designed a Suitcase That’ll Tell You If Your Luggage Is Over the Weight Limit

Listen: Shay Mitchell knows travel. The jet-setting actress, known for her starring role in Pretty Little Liars (or more recently, Netflix’s mega-hit series You), is no stranger to globe-trotting, and she has the hashtag and YouTube travel series to prove it (it’s #SHAYCATION, if you’re wondering). Add to that her successful launch of new travel accessories brand Béis, where you’ll find a range of smartly designed bags and other essentials made with function and style in mind (we’re talking items like a travel backpack that unzips generously, just like a suitcase, so you can take it with you overnight, for the weekend, or on the plane).

001~263.jpg 002~248.jpg 003~222.jpg 004~202.jpg 006~163.jpg

Now Béis is launching its most requested item yet — rolling hardside luggage. But that’s not all. In true Béis style, these suitcases are more than just some plain, old thing meant to hold your belongings. These suitcases will actually tell you if your luggage is over the weight limit.

On the suitcase’s side handle, you’ll find a super-handy, built-in weight limit checker that’ll turn red if your packed luggage weighs more than 50 lbs. — no more anxiety about pulling up to the check-in counter, only to be hit with an excess baggage fee.

Available in both a carry-on and check-in size, the new Béis rolling suitcases range from $198 to $258 and are available on nordstrom.com starting today. Go for the sleek, goes-with-anything black, or a clean, minimalist beige.

Other notable items launched in Wednesday’s drop include a stylish garment bag ($68, nordstrom.com) and a six-piece packing cube set ($58, nordstrom.com). Head to nordstrom.com to shop the rest.

Get The Cover Look | Gritty Pretty Magazine

She first hit our screens in a major way on hit TV drama Pretty Little Liars, and now with a decade’s worth of experience in the acting industry, 32-year-old Shay Mitchell is continuing to make waves both on and off the screen. Along with launching her own accessories business and managing a massive social media presence, Mitchell is a woman who’s seriously in demand.

Capturing the cover of the Winter 2019 issue of Gritty Pretty Magazine at Los Angeles’ iconic Smashbox Studios, it was a day to be remembered when Gritty Pretty teamed up alongside L.A.-based Australian photographer Sylvè Colless, stylist Monica Rose and Shay’s trusted glam team, celebrity makeup artist Ariel Tejada and hairstylist Jesus Guerrero.

Vivacious and bubbly, Shay’s energy was infectious on set, dancing, singing and laughing in between takes — and filming for her Instagram stories, of course. Renowned by her followers for her signature sultry glamour, Guererro wanted to create an undone, raw edge for her Gritty Pretty cover look.

Shay’s look is very sophisticated and sexy, so I wanted to integrate soft waves to further enhance the sultriness she already has. I wanted to create an ‘I-just-worked-out’ hairstyle for Shay—it’s natural, sexy, and youthful. Firstly, I made sure that her hair was damp but not wet, and I prepped it with a texturiser and roughly blow-dried it in. Once her hair was completely dry, I used a one-inch curling iron to create the waves, alternating between one- and two-inch sections before using a comb to break apart the waves to add volume. Lastly, I applied the Oribe Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray through her hair, then spritzed with Bumble and Bumble Surf Infusion to finish.
