Bel & Beau is a lifestyle brand dedicated to living elegantly.

I’m Isobel, editor and designer behind Bel & Beau.  Formerly known as HoldenOnBaby, this blog originally started as a love letter to my son, Holden, and has since become an outlet for my creative inspiration.  With a background in styling and writing, the Bel & Beau blog is a place of fashion, beauty, and adventures in motherhood.

Whether it’s putting on that dress you bought solely for your birthday or swiping on that red lipstick that you usually reserve for date night, I have found that those simple acts can add a little fun, elegance, and glamour into everyday living and I hope that when you visit Bel & Beau, you feel inspired to take an ordinary, everyday opportunity in your life and dress it up.

Use your best things everyday to make everyday feel like a special occasion.
