Direction. Intentionality. Resolve. 

These three words mark the heart of Darling Issue No. 9: a collection of beautiful images and heartfelt, honest essays that will reframe your vision, confirm your value and challenge your heart to forget the “lack” and revel in the “have.” In a season that naturally draws in discipline, the words found here celebrate the fact that good things always take time; that dreams are built one red brick at a time and that intentionality can’t help but foster excellence. In a world full of messages, we hope the ones in these pages are those that truly rest upon you.

Here’s a sneak-peek of what you can expect inside our ninth issue:


Inside the Stylist | a feature and photo shoot with Aimee Song from Song of Style about how to bring your own style to work.

Inside The Explorer | a feature on Kristen Bell and her work with This Bar Saves Lives

“Stories paint the true picture, adding brushstrokes of pain, loss and heartache. But they also paint a picture of hope—a splash of optimism on the otherwise bleak canvas of world nutrition.”  – Kristen Bell & Ryan Devlin
