Introducing Bella Grace Issue 13


When I think of autumn, I think of change.


Not the bad type of change; the wonderful, magical and comforting kind you look forward to. Leaves start to turn from green to shades of red, orange, and brown. The summer heat slowly fades as stores start filling their shelves with holiday decorations. Coffee shops everywhere begin changing their signs to start advertising pumpkin spiced everything … And I couldn’t be more excited.


Embrace every part of this cozy season with new inspiration found in the pages of Bella Grace Issue 13.


Inside This Issue:

  • 52 Books Sure to Bring a Smile to Your Face
  • Settling into autumn’s slowness
  • Just a girl and her Converse
  • 70 Simple Ways to Pamper Yourself
  • Learn even more about hygge just in time for fall
  • The podcasts our readers can’t live without
  • The best ways to start and end your day
  • Embracing a new kind of fairy tale


We all have that special place we run to when we need to get away and recuperate. Discover how Carrie Ciula finds her moments of solace on the road in “The Wind & The Highway.”


Ella Wilson does the unthinkable in “Rebel.” Mismatching socks, blowing bubbles in her drinks, jumping in puddles, you name it! Learn how these little acts of rebellion invited more laughter and magic into her life.


Journaling can be a therapeutic way to reflect on your life. Oftentimes, we find excuses that keep us from sitting down and putting our thoughts on paper. Or sometimes we just can’t think of anything to write. “The Universe is Listening,” is filled with guidelines that will inspire you to make that effort to journal, even when you feel completely blocked.


In “You Are Loved,” discover how Wendy Williams Watt started an inspiring trend of passing along notes that held three simple words, and how those words changed thousands of lives.


“Living a Bella Grace life means … giving myself permission to take things slowly and finding time daily for things that make me happy …” — Anna Drozd. Don’t miss the special Instagram Spotlights of photographers who find the magic in the ordinary and continuously show it through their beautiful photos.


We hope that Issue 13 brings new inspiration into your life, and that it’s the perfect companion during your cozy moments of solitude throughout this season.


Issue 13 is now available on newsstands, or you can order your copy online at:

    I love all your publications, they are beautiful . Fall is my favorite time of the year, crisp air, beautiful colors of the trees. But I am sorry I can not post anything to Facebook and I do not have a website. I am just an old fashion girl. Thank you for all your hard work to provide wonderful works of art for our enjoyment

    Every autumn I am excited about the crisp cool air that twirles around us… carrying wonderful scents of the season, warm cups of tea, big bulky sweaters, thigh high socks, backyard fires and the arms of my loved one wrapped tightly around me

    I shared this on pinterest!

    I am most looking forward to stepping outside and breathing in that crisp, chilly air as I snuggle up in my favorite sweater. Then, stepping back inside by the fireplace for a hot cup of tea and a good book, while looking forward to the evening when I get to share tea and good conversation with my mom and sister. ❤

    Bella Grace sounds like the perfect magazine to help keep us centered in this busy world we live in. I’m sorry that I can’t post to social media because I don’t belong to any of them… ????

    Crisp cool morning air…taking time to watch the birds eat breakfast outside my kitchen window and listen to the geese flying over…then driving into work with the window cracked…a nice slow way to start my hectic work day. This is what I am looking forward to this autumn.

    I shared and pinned a link to Bella Grace on my Inspiration Board on my Pinterest. I discovered Bella Grace magazine a week ago at Michaels Craft store.
    Worth every penny it cost. What an inspirational magazine. This Fall I am most looking forward to the beautiful colors of the Fall leaves, the crisp air and the delicious Fall apples at all the apple orchards.

    Fall is my favorite because everything’s slower, quieter and more still. It’s like a deep exhale. Least it should be. Might need to work on that!

    Btw, love your blog. Like your magazine articles instantly in front of me, which is wonderful when I have to save up to buy one! Always worth it.

    The things that I love about fall, are the beautiful colors of orange, red and yellow leaves, the cool crisp autumn breeze.
    The warm spices of autumn, which include, cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin spice cooked into wonderful desserts, and warm hot apple cider.

    So many reasons why I love autumn…my birthday, cooler weather, falling leaves that swirl in the wind, neighborhood trick or treat night…Oh my, I could go on and on 🙂

    Hello, my name is Maria. I am from Mexico.

    And I would like to know how much does the paper magazine cost? Does the cost include the shipment? How often do you send it? If you have more information to provide I would appreciate it.
    I love Bella Grace. It is so feminine, so natural and spontaneous. It is what I completely want to be. It remembers me my grand mother, and my beautiful aunts, and some friends of my mom, my mom herself… I just love it. Thank you so much.
