If you are into Youtube then you may know or heard of youtuber Ingrid Nilsen.
Whilst her channel is made up of beauty and style related videos, her side channel – TheGridMonster reveals a different side to Ingrid. She’s funny, intelligent and most importantly; Real.
In one of her videos she began talking about her love for a magazine specifically aimed at women. One that was empowering, authentic and positively influential. Darling.
After hearing her talk so highly of this magazine I decided to check it out for myself. After looking all over their website and reading the articles which they had online, I knew that I needed to have this magazine. It encompasses everything I love. Photographs, beauty, lifestyle, style, intellect, illustrations etc.
With its articles which are all about teaching women to be happy and healthy, inside and out.
Darlings mission is:
This is so important. Darling doesn’t retouch any models, they’re is no adverts, no gossip, no celebrity exploitation.
Instead Darling enlightens readers on spirituality, healthy bodies, character, growing knowledge and even helping women through hushed topics such as depression, anxiety and eating disorders.
The importance of this magazine in today’s ever changing society with endless social media and being instantly in touch with everything and everyone, it needs to be recognised. Not only is it beautifully aesthetically. it’s beautiful on the inside too. Under the pressures of every day life, it’s easy to forget how to be an individual without constantly comparing yourself and validating yourself by other peoples opinions. This magazine allows me to remember that it’s OK to be myself, to stop worrying what others think and to do what I love and what makes me happy.
If it was up to me, every women would own this magazine.
