Behind the blog

Beaux Mondes is a celebration all things beautiful in this world. Whether here in Hamilton or exploring other cities, I love capturing beauty in unexpected places along the way.

Cities are full of inspiring designers, makers, shopkeepers, chefs and entrepreneurs – each making or doing beautiful things. I love bringing you a collection of snapshots and stories about inspiring people and places, as well as life, style and beauty moments. I hope you'll be inspired by what you see – to discover the beauty in your city, your wardrobe or your home.

n. pl. beaux mondes (bō môNd’)
Origin: 1705-15; French: lit., fine world; beautiful world
