Who created YHM?

YHM has a unique editorial theme. What does it all mean?

  • In the Voice section you’ll find inspiration to overcoming your struggles based on the stories of other women in Connection Stories; learn about women reaching career and academic heights in various industries in Voice of the Month; catch up on relationship do’s and don’ts to pop culture movements in Notebook Confessions; and much more on wellness. We can get pretty serious in the Voice section.
  • Fashion Speaks; there is a lot to say about style and trends. Lips on Fashion has the latest fashion stories from your favorite influencers to fashion week highlights; Timeless Fashion turns the page a few times with notes on who we are and how we express ourselves through fashion; Fashion Spotlight is the it girl – or guy – in the fashion industry we have to know; and let’s not forget about all that #ootd and beauty tips in The Closet and Beauty Book.
  • Who would we be without our favorite musicians, movie stars, and artists cheering us on and totally relating to our every being. Catch up on all that and must try lifestyle moments in The Lounge!
