tell me you don't feel inspired after reading that.
this is the mission statement of Darling Magazine
a new magazine that celebrates the art of being a woman.
i caught wind of this beautiful little upstart from my friend Rachel
|remember her? (hint: she's the bride) photo credit: jessica lorren organic photography|
who is way cooler than i am
and lives in L.A.
and goes to magazine launches and stuff
|rach and one of the amazing women behind the launch|
|they had a teepee. at the launch. i mean...|
needless to say, i couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy
so i ordered one
and it's simply...darling.
152 pages of deliciously thick paper
full of gorgeous photography (think Elizabeth Messina-gorgeous)
recipes, fashion, beauty, tips on how to be a more perfect hostess
and most endearingly...
article after empowering article
inspiring me to be better, yet affirming that i am good enough
each exploring Darling's eight personas:
the dreamer, the stylist, the achiever, the confidant
the hostess, the beautician, the intellectual, the explorer
i'm still in the process of devouring them
but i can honestly say, i have never had such a raw, positive, emotional response
from a publication before.
you should be.
get yours. it's published quarterly.
i'm not getting any compensation from Darling for telling you about this.
i paid for my own magazine because after perusing the website
i knew this was something worth believing in
and i support it.
just wanted you to know.
