The media create this wonderful illusion, it’s impossible to live up to, because it’s not real.
Airburshing takes away from some of your features and that’s what’s beautiful about all of us, it is what makes us unique.
AWOL is inspired by those who have found beauty in nature. As a magazine we are striving to promote YOU. We go against the grain of what is expected of us as women. The fashion industry is toxic, promoting waif-like female models as the women we are expected to lust over and morph into. The images in the media are often highly edited, and almost impossible to achieve. There is so much pressure on women, but why; when we are already so naturally beautiful?
AWOL believes in free spirit.
In this issue we had the opportunity to travel to numerous inspiring locations, and explore travelling on various budgets; from luxury city breaks, to backpacking around Thailand. We visit Copenhagen on £13 return flights, explore the luscious beaches of New Zealand and catch up with travel and lifestyle blogger, Angie Silver, to see where her voyages have taken her this year. Traveling should be a choice, not a dream. Be inspired by our travels and go AWOL.
We aim to be a source of inspiration for women who seek a unique and adventurous lifestyle, by encouraging individuality and finding the beauty within.
