INTRODUCING A NEW KIND OF ONLINE MAGAZINE FOR WOMEN — one that inspires women to be natural, sexy, strong, and, above all, to love themselves.
SMV inspires women to be natural, sexy, strong and above all: to love themselves. Our goal is that one day women will not feel the need to hide their bodies in shame or feel less than, but rather embrace the desire to love their bodies with confidence.
We live in a world
where fashion magazines and media constantly feed information to women on how they aren't beautiful enough through fabricated beauty ads, SMV offers women something radically different. Rather than give women an unrealistic representation of beauty, SMV gives women a raw, unadulterated kind of beauty to be inspired by. By replacing the media's fabrication, we are creating a change towards a more natural beauty, a beauty that is ever lasting.
SMV is a digital outlet that publishes daily content and features on self-love, body positivity, health, fashion, travel, sex and relationships. Regular articles include: approaches to natural beauty, photographic stories to inspire women, articles on loving your body along with humorous and educational content. Interviews accompanied by beautiful photography with inspiring women we call "SundayGirls," inclusive of athletes to activists changing the world.
SMV HAS A STRONG POINT OF VIEW
SMV is for THE WOMAN who feels she isn't beautiful enough. It’s for the woman who has cellulite, stretch marks, extra weight or doesn't fit into traditional beauty standards. It's for the woman with a Hijab and for the woman sun kissed with all shades of beauty.SMV is for ALL WOMEN. We celebrate the beauty of women daily but Sundays are extra special because we feature one inspiring woman who celebrates her imperfections as the very things that make her perfect, we call her a SundayGirl. We celebrate her with a different kind of photoshoot, it's a bit unorthodox because: We remove the dresses, the heels, the makeup, hair extensions and free women from societal beauty restraints. On Sunday she is just herself, raw, bare and beautiful.
All shoots are natural. This means makeup free, re-touching free, and free of digital body manipulation. A SundayGirl encourages realness, by being the example.
"We celebrate the bodies you see in dressing rooms, that the media never portrays."
We live in a world where women don't feel beautiful nor feel like they can ever measure up to society's beauty standards.
• Only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful (up from 2% in 2004)
• 72% of girls feel tremendous pressure to be beautiful
• More than half of women globally (54%) agree that when it comes to how they look, they are their own worst beauty critic
