BIZU is not only all about authentic French sayings, but also meaningful and funny expressions. There are so many cool, or funky words in French, it’s sometimes hard to choose one among  all of them. I truly praise stories that make a word, a phrase, a sentence unique and memorable.

It’s also a way to share my passion and love for French language. As a woman who travels (I’ve lived in 4 foreign countries, and visited at least 20), I enjoy hearing my mother tongue in countries outside of France. It always makes me smile no matter how good the pronunciation is.

‘La vie est belle’ translates to ‘Life is beautiful’. It is a common phrase that has made some famous French brands even more chic. Just look at the cute bracelet from Lancôme, or their elegant fragrance. This expression is the symbol of feminity as ‘a choice embraced by women’.

In other words, this well-known French saying is either used as an optimistic philosophy of life celebrating happiness; or as sarcasm to express hard work or annoyance. You could either mean it in a way to speak highly of your life / life in general; or in a way to say that someone is annoying you. You’d hear someone say ‘Ah bah, je vois que la vie est belle’.

The font used brings frivolity to this expression celebrating life & freedom. The garland of flowers, leaves & hearts around it brings happiness. This design is meant to depict joy, luck & love.

Try saying it this way “la vee eh belle”
