What Readers are Saying About Bella Grace
"The feel and touch of this magazine is unbelievable. When your fingertips flex across the pages, the sensation is full and complete, an experience not easily forgotten. Bella Grace is exquisite." - Mr. Magazine™ Samir Husni
"I couldn't put it down until it was read cover to cover. I loved the feel of the pages ... It is more of a book than a 'magazine': the pages are matte (non-glossy, as lots of other publications), the cover is of sturdy cardboard ... This publication is much like a beautiful coffee table book with gorgeous photographs and inspiring text. Loved it!" – Irma Peredne, Facebook fan
"I have no words to describe how I feel about your magazine. Ok, well yes I do ... It's really a book. With a good feel, the pages are meaty with a yummie tooth. Gorgeous photos. Gentle flow. I adore your invitation to carry it to the beach and write on the dog eared pages. I am in love and will purchase copies for my friends." – Deb Taylor, Instagram follower
"I thank you so much for your beautiful publication. I came across it today and it brought tears to my eyes because it reminded me of how I was when I was living more authentically. How I've missed that version of me! The Universe always gives reminders when I need it most, and I'm grateful I came across #bellagracemagazine when I did, as I'm starting a new chapter in my life in a couple of days! Thank you!!!" – Marisa Moore, Instagram follower
