Beautiful Minds




So, I run a shop and magazine, called Beautiful Minds. It's kind of my baby so I thought I would dedicate a whole page on my blog to answer some of the frequently asked questions I receive. Cheeky self-promo. (Please buy the magazine, so I can eat, drink and feed my cats, which I don't have. Jokes. Please) 

What is Beautiful Minds?

Beautiful Minds is a brand, I created at the start of 2017. The aim is to spread awareness of mental health in a brutally honest and Frank way. We want to support people who struggle or those who know someone who struggles with their mental health. We want to educate about the reality of living with a mental illness and above all, we want to smash the stigma, so more people feel able to talk about their battle with mental illness openly and not struggle in silence anymore.

Yeah...but what actually is Beautiful Minds?

Beautiful Minds is a mental health awareness Etsy shop and magazine. We sell stickers which we encourage people to put in public places to reduce the stigma and brighten people's day. We also sell a magazine ( From 15th July 2017) which also supports, educates and raises awareness of mental health.

What can you expect to find in Beautiful Minds magazine?

Every issue is jam-packed full of articles, advice, stories, DIYs and interviews covering a wide range of mental health topics. We cover everything from depression and anxiety to the less well known mental illnesses. We do not let any topic go untouched, no matter how much of a taboo it may be. All the stories and experiences shared in the magazine are honest and truthful. We do not sugar coat anything. We tell it as it is. 

Where can I buy the magazine and stickers from? ( read fabulous magazine and stickers)

How much will the magazine cost?

The first issue will cost £4.50 ( There's a cheeky 20% off code on the day of launch though) This cost covers, the payment for the designer, advertising costs and to make every issue bigger and better than the one before it.  

Why is it a digital magazine? Will it ever be a print? 

Printing is expensive, let me tell you! Beautiful Minds is run on a tiny budget, however, the dream is to always have the magazine in print sold in WHsmiths, where the journey all began. 

Do you ship outside the UK? 

The magazine is a digital download, so yes we do. However, stickers currently only ship within the UK. We are working on this for the future though.
