that's darling | Why I Read Darling Magazine

Darling, you had me at your mission statement.

When I first stumbled upon Darling Magazine, I was instantly drawn to the sincerity of the essays and articles. It is the magazine that I had always wished could exist and a refreshing response to the ‘standard’ magazine. The contributors of Darling, for both the online blog and printed publication, have a way of breathing life into complex, intangible topics through thoughtful writings (without being cheesy or cliché).

Here are a few reasons why I read Darling Magazine:

Honest, always.

Darling isn’t afraid to delve deeper. They challenge social norms while understanding the difference between opening up a conversation vs. stirring up controversy. Difficult topics, such as mental health, aren’t passively brushed over, but articulated with care by balancing personal experiences with valuable advice. Reading Darling Magazine feels quite like an honest conversation with a dear friend.

Redefining beauty.

Instead of being adorned with pictures of celebrities, Darling features diverse individuals to share their stories and reflections. The magazine elegantly merges art and beauty through tasteful styling, photography, and prose. They recognize that there is beauty in outer appearances, but also in one’s character and inner qualities.

Real >>> Perfect

The number of articles I’ve read from Darling that I could relate to my own experiences, are countless. In this magazine, life isn’t presented through a sparkly filter of perfection and nor are their photos (which are #RealNotRetouched). Authenticity is esteemed, acknowledging our capacity for growth and potential to thrive. Instead of pressuring women to reach an ideal based on preconceived notions and expectations, Darling empowers us to discover the kind of woman we want to be.

Darling is a momentum, advocating for our self-worth and helping us find our purpose. It is not only a movement, but a community of women who aspire to ‘practice the arts of virtue, wit, modesty, and wisdom‘.

  1. Great post, I really like Darling Magazine. I’ve followed their blog for a long time but never actually bought a physical copy of the magazine. I really should!! They have great articles, always leaving me uplifted and inspired after reading them. Have a great weekend Naomi 🙂

    • I’d also been following their blog for a while and just recently picked up the spring issue. It’s so beautiful and such high quality, it feels more like a coffee table book than a magazine! I got mine at Old Faithful Shop in Gastown but I think they sell it at Anthropologie too 🙂

  2. I think I finally just need to get my hands on a copy! I’ve seen nothing been love being spread around for this magazine. I’m also really interested in reading Thoughtfully mag, but haven’t been able to find it anywhere.

    • You should, you will love it 🙂 I first started reading their blog -it’s amazing! I only recently purchased it and I am so happy that I did. PS. I just looked up Thoughtfully and it looks so nice -I think they sell it at Whole Foods!
