"Darling is the art of being a woman. Darling magazine holds the modern mold of woman up to the fire to evoke a discussion on femininity and re-shape an authentic design. Darling is a catalyst for positive change; leading women to discover beauty apart from vanity, influence apart from manipulation, style apart from materialism, sweetness apart from passivity, and womanhood without degradation. Darling leads women to practice the arts of virtue, wit, modesty, and wisdom- all the while creating beauty and embodying love. Darling says women are not only interesting, but original, not only good enough, but exceptional- not just here, but here for a purpose." -Darling's mission statement found on the back of every issue.
I've been obsessing over every issue of Darling so far, currently on issue number 11. It's not your typical "women" magazine, you know the really sexist ones that have "50 ways to please your man in bed" on the cover. Women are more than that and it's about time something was created to showcase our powerful creativity and influence in lifestyles. If there's something that you need to have for inspiration and to make you feel deserving of positive self esteem, it's Darling.
