Introducing the 2014 Winter Issue of Clever Daring Magazine!

IT'S FINALLY HERE. The first issue of Clever Daring Magazine! It's been my dream for a long while now to create & publish my own magazine and so I'm super excited and proud to launch it for the public today.
What originally started as a college assignment (one cover, one contents page & two spreads) quickly turned into an obsession and eventually my senior thesis.

Clever Darling is a (currently) online publication for millennial women, by millennial women. This first issue is 32 pages, packed full of articles on productivity, sass, babes in business, some sassy cocktail drinks and more! Clever Darling will be posted quarterly for now and will be heavily influenced by you- the readers! (More info coming soon <3)

First and foremost, a website, which hopefully will be live before the New Year! Once that goes up, we'll be accepting submissions and proposals for working with artists, photographers, bloggers, writers, advertisers, etc. And one day, we hope to be able to sell printed issues.
Until then, we'll also be jammin' on twitter & instagram, with more social to follow in the coming months! So stay tuned for all of that!

Please take a look and let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions for what you'd like to see in the next issue! Again, thank you all so much for your support and I can't wait to hear what you think! xx
