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.

  11. […] So as you can see I rarely ever really post about myself, but when I received my Bel & Beau skirts I didn’t have much of a choice but to show the tulle skirt off!  I recently bought a new camera (the amazing Canon T3i) and thought I should give a ‘style post’ a whirl. Well let’s just say…being a model is a lot harder than you think! I was super uncomfortable,  didn’t know what to do with my hands, and to top it off my blow dryer died half way through doing my hair (hence the horrible hairdo). But anyway, here are a couple of me in her very new tulle skirts!  I also did Bel & Beaus new logo design too, a bit whimsical and a bit edgy at the same time. I love how it turned out and couldn’t be happier for Isobel! […]
