More Of Who You Are



The first issue of Verily arrived in the mail a few days ago! It was a wonderful early birthday gift, and I've slowly been working my way through the articles, savoring the gorgeous watercolor illustrations and feeling the beautiful paper the magazine is printed on. I know I've sung Verily's praises before on my blog, but I couldn't help but write a quick post about it again today. As I've been reading through it, it seems as if this issue was made just for me, and I bet there are many other women out there thinking the same thing. After all, Verily's motto is "Less of who you should be, more of who you are."

There was a beautifully photographed segment on loose teas. A gorgeous photo-shoot of two women wearing flattering one-piece bathing suits on the beach. A section on arranging your own flowers in unique vessels.

A recipe for lavender honey chicken. A piece (by a fellow ND alum) on the dangers of poring over wedding magazines in all of their unrealistic perfectionism. Really fantastic relationship wisdom on how to make your marriage last. An article on natural-looking makeup, a tip to not show too much skin when dressing up for a date.

Needless to say, I love this magazine, and want to get a subscription for every woman I know! I'm already thinking of who I will pass this issue on to when I'm done.
