Happy Halloween! I can't believe October is already gone. I have good news for November, though. Have you heard of Crown of Beauty? It's okay if you haven't, you're going to get to today! Currently, it is a blog and website. Tomorrow, their first ever magazine issue is coming out. It will be completely digital! No waiting at the mailbox for your magazine. You want to know what you're getting before you buy it first though, right? Here's some information from Livy, the editor!
Unless you've been living in a cave for the past fifteen years of your life, or dwell on an Amish farm out in the hilly countryside, you've probably noticed the way in which the media has a special gift for making girls feel ugly and inadequate. We've all suffered through those nauseating T.V. advertisements in which an underwear model poses, pursing her pouty lips, as her hair blows wildly from a fan. After watching such ads I roll my eyes and try not to laugh. I mean, how lame do the marketers think that I am?! (It's like those drug advertisements that list the deadly side effects, such as hearing loss or your nose falling off, while they show happy old couples flying kites, and walking puppy dogs.)
I'm sure you've picked up on the trend in many teen magazines. The words on the glossy cover shout, “Boost Your Self-Confidence! Six Tips To Loving Yourself!” Yet by the time you flip to page ten, you've already seen a dozen perfect faces and bodies posing for makeup advertisements, which drained away all confidence you were hoping to get from their pep-talk article.
Every girl has noticed what's going on. We're not immune to it. But have we ever recognized what's going on around us as a targeted attack on our beauty as females?
Will you join your sisters and discover what's going on behind-the-scenes in the modeling industry, Hollywood, the media, and cosmetic companies? Many of these avenues have added insult to injury , as thousands of young girls just don't feel like they measure up. Discover the unique role that we have as young women in combating this attack on our generation! You have been given a powerful influence and are called to play a meaningful role. Be both challenged and encouraged in this powerful new recourse for girls, an online magazine, Crown of Beauty Magazine. Crown of Beauty is releasing their first FULL downloadable issue on Friday November 1st, 2013! This issue includes articles and interviews with some wonderful young women! Including, Jenny Simmons of Addison Road, Sarah Ross from Everlife, and Kylie Busitti, a former Victoria's Secret Model.
Recommended for teen girls ages 13+.
If you decide you’d like to order The Beauty Issue, it costs $4.99. Now, this is the first time we’ve charged anything to our readers, but this issue took a lot of hard work & it’s totally jam-packed (70 + pages!)! But if you don’t want to purchase anything...no worries! We have lots of free content on our site! Check it out! www.crownofbeautymagazine.com
Check it out when you can! I will be reading it tomorrow when it comes out and giving you guys my review and thoughts. :)
