Have you heard about Verily magazine yet? If not, add this to your ‘must check out’ list immediately! I actually only recently heard about Verily when a client had pointed me to their website as an example of something she was very inspired by. As it happened, that same week, the folks at the magazine reached out to me and asked if they could send me a copy to check out. I happily accepted!

Verily‘s motto is “less of who you should be, more of who you are,” and I think in their first issue, they’ve definitely captured that. Features range from a long piece on sex-trafficking in America (more rampant than you might think), a discussion on whether guys and gals can truly be “just friends,” plus lots of beautiful columns on things like tea, arranging small vases of flowers, easy (and delish!) paleo dining, and so much more. Plus, I loved that blog friend Jessie was tapped to style a big feature on first date outfits, and my girl Grace got some ink dedicated to her lovely blog as well!

As I was flipping through the magazine, Joe asked me if it was a magazine for bloggers. “No way!” I told him — I think Verily is a lot more than that. I think it’s a magazine for the real, modern woman. I know a lot of magazines have launched with that demographic in mind, but Verily is one of the few I’ve seen that even comes close. The magazine is divided up into sections on style, relationships, culture, lifestyle, and the main features; each is presented with a beautiful section divider that’s perfectly designed. In fact, the whole magazine is really gorgeous to look at. Design inspiration indeed!

So, how to get your hands on a copy? You can subscribe to Verily, or check out their website for additional features not in the magazine (and a few that are!). Here’s hoping it’s available in stores soon too!

    Well the theme “less of who you should be, more of who you are” sounds promising! I’ll have to stick to their Website though, since I fear they won’t publish the mag in Europe…
    Thanks for the tip though! :)

    I like the idea of Verily very much, but I’m a little put off by the radical right-wing political views behind it. I can’t quite seem to separate the extremely conservative views of the editors from the content they’re producing.

    I wish them the best of luck as they get going, but I just feel uneasy looking at the organizations the editors support on social media sites (e.g. several radical pro-life organizations that use very graphic imagery that, in my mind, isn’t at all kind or empathetic towards women.).

      Hi Eliza!

      Thanks for your comment! While I personally don’t support the types of organizations you mentioned either, I can say that I didn’t immediately notice any type of radical viewpoints — either right or left — during my first read of the magazine.
