Girls' Lives website hosts a penpal program, games, and discussions. It is considered safe for younger girls, around age 10. The magazine cover has featured Disney stars, such as Laura Marano, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and The Cheetah Girls, and other celebrities such as Mandy Moore and Hayden Panettiere that may bring interest to older girls. Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, Emma Roberts, Emma Watson, Selena Gomez, and Ashley Tisdale have appeared on the cover of Girls' Life magazine twice.

It covers a range of topics, from heavier topics such as dealing with racism, sexual abuse, and feelings for boys, as well as lighter topics such as fashion, beauty, skin care, embarrassing moments. There are often recipes, gift ideas, and interviews.
