kate spade. fall 2013.

oh my. oh my. oh my.
kate spade nailed it with her new fall collection.
every piece is the perfect mix of sass & elegance.
channeling fashion icon brigitte bardot in every glam way.

i personally have alway had a love affair with leopard print.
it is just so fantastic for so many reasons. 
so. it goes without saying . . .
i will need to find a home in my closet for all of these pieces.

la. la. la. loving splashes of leopard print for my fall wardrobe.
meow. meow.

just darling.

i feel like if i had to pick my fave word of all time.
it just might be the word darling.
its just so cute. so sweet. so girlie. so lovely.
say it out loud with me . . . darling.
don't you instantly feel more feminine?!
the word darling has long been a big part of my vocabulary.
it is decided. darling is my fave word of all time. 

that being said. 
imagine my pure delight when i was gifted the most lovely magazine entitled . . .
you guessed it. yes. darling. how darling is that?!
my heart skipped a beat & i just knew that i would forever be a friend of the mag.

the cover alone stole my heart.
a bundle of oversized round balloons.
its just so whimsy & flirty.

i decided that i needed to prepare a cup of hot tea.
& cozy up at the dining room table to drool over every last page of this mag.
this was certainly going to demand all of my attention.
and i was happy to give it.

with every flip of the beautiful matte page . . .
i felt more & more as if this darling mag was written just for me.
the fashions. the images. the styling.
it is so me.

the table of contents has the mag broken down into several 
darling little manifestos. my fave being the confidant. the stylist. & the hostess.
within the pages it then has articles & features geared towards each woman.

i mean really?! how impossibly cute are these illustrations?
ahhh. i am just dying over every last bit of this.
{i would totally wear the outfit that this paper doll is donning}

yes. without a doubt. i would wear this outfit. too.
the tips for the girl of style are just fantastic. 

hello, mod. hello, perfection.
dressing like an icon. that is what i am talking about!

a black & white uniform that screams both class & edge.
i am pretty sure that is a c'est si bon girls everyday wear.
{right this very moment i am wearing white skinnies with a black & white polka dot top}

i just swooned over this article.
throwing a love party for all of your besties?!
why didn't i think of that?
it is the most perfect way to show love & appreciation for our sweet friends.
{again. every outfit in this image belongs in my closet}

it was the back cover that made this girlie-girl want to do backflips.
how stinkin cute is this pledge that epitomizes darling?!
my fave lines of all read . . .
"darling leads women to practice the arts of virtue, wit, modesty, & wisdom.
all the while creating beauty & embodying love."

ok. darling mag. will you be my very best friend?
i simply adore you to the one hundredth power.

etsy shop!

oh my goodness. i am so tickled & overwhelmed at the response on the scripture books. 
i was just too excited & could not wait to get the etsy shop up & running. 

so . . . here it is lovelies. 

happy shopping! 
and a big thank you for your support. 
you all are so dear. you make my heart swell.

scripture books.

i can hardly wait to share this great news with all of you.
i am sorry for being m.i.a. this past week . . .
but i have been putting the final touches on a little project.
& i am finally ready to share with you.

this is so near & dear to my heart.
i just pray that you will appreciate them as much as i do. 

i have decided to start my own little business.
my own little hobby. my own little creative outlet. my own little ministry.
i am creating & selling customized scripture books.
and not just ordinary scripture books.
i happen to think they are the most beautiful. most lovely. most meaningful. books ever.
let me tell you a little about my inspiration . . .

my blog is called c'est si bon. which means  it is so good in french.
i strive to center this blog around everything that i think is oh so good in life.
fashion. design. food. family. love. faith. babies. all so good.
& i am carrying on this theme with my scripture books. 
designing books to celebrate all of life's goodness.

it is so good to encourage one another.
it is so good to love one another.
it is so good to be a true friend.
it is so good to celebrate one another.
it is so good to comfort one another.
it is oh. so. very. so. good.

and what better way to do all of these good things
than by sharing the Word of the Lord with one another.

each book is hand crafted using high quality chipboard albums.
luxe paper. & beautiful embellishments.
the pages are overflowing with scripture. with the recipients name entered in.
"for God so loved Baby Patrick, that He gave His only son . . ."
such a powerful way to remind ourselves of the promises we stand on.
i just love how personal the scriptures become when we add our name in.

as of now. i am offering books for the following occasions:
engagements. weddings. anniversaries. graduations. babies birth. & the everyday.
take a peak at the different styles for each theme. 

this is the perfect book for the everyday.
for a friend who needs encouragement.
for a family member that needs comfort.
for a "thinking of you" surprise.
for a friends birthday.
it is neutral in theme. & stunning in aesthetics. 

the golden heart embellishment reads
"believe. have faith. love."

this would be a great book for a glitzy girl.
for the bride who loves to be a little glam.

i adore the gold & black combo. so chic.

this is the perfect book for a couple getting married.
the metallic silver & kraft paper are stunning.

this beautiful silver heart reads
"treasure every precious moment."
great words for newlyweds.

this book is just adorable to celebrate either an engagement or a wedding.
the great big diamond ring is too stinkin cute.

don't you just love it?! 

this is an example of one of the pages inside.
the kraft on kraft is simple elegance.

i created this particular book for a couple about to be wed. 
so i included both of their names.
each book can either have one single name or two names. like this.

this darling book is the perfect way to celebrate a new baby.
i have it shown in pink for a little girl. but it is also available in blue for a little boy.

this one comes with photo corners & a space for you to put your own photo in.
so sweet!

here is another adorable book to celebrate a baby born or a baby on the way.
again. shown in pink. but also available in blue. or red.
the ceramic cross is just so sweet. & the perfect place to put a name or monogram.

this is the ultimate book of love.
perfect for anniversaries. valentines day. or just because.

this red heart reads "treasure the ones you love."
such wise words to live by.

as you can see. all of the books have a strong binding with coordinating paper.

and the chipboard pages are very sturdy.
even after reading the book 100 times. it would still be good as new.
the quality & durability is just outstanding. 

i have opened an etsy shop. so shop around here
or you may shop directly through the blog by emailing me. 
each book is 39.95

i truly hope that you find these personalized gifts as meaningful as i do.
they are beautiful. they are unique. & they provide an abundance of faith to the recipient.
the absolute perfect gift to celebrate every special occasion.
and even the simplest everyday.

i will keep you posted as to when the etsy shop opens.
start making your list of friends & family members who would love
 to have a personalized scripture book!

fall florals.

who ever said you cannot wear florals in the fall?
i totally endorse this fall fashion trend.

i am loving this spread in town & country. 
so impossibly chic. i just adore it. how stunning are these images?!

"some would say that brights & florals are better suited to springtime.
but those are the same sort of people who never dare wear major jewels in broad daylight."

baby days.

our baby days have just an abundance of love.
and a whole lotta every day baby type things.
feeding times. nap times. play times. smile times. quiet times.
and i love knowing that every day i get to do it all again.
i get to do it today. and tomorrow. and the next day. and the next.
and while soon our simple every days will likely evolve into wild little boy days.
right now. i am completely & utterly enjoying our simple baby days.

our days are often times quiet. and calm. and restful.
but. of course. we have moments of cries. and tears. and whines.
we have hours of snuggles. and smiles. and coos.
and times of wonder. and exploring. and learning.
our baby days are quite wonderful. 

just love our sweet. sleepy. playful. simple. baby days. 

{and really love the amazing leisa rice for her incredible photog skills.

she is impossibly smart with her creative eye. loves the Lord. and is a way fun friend}
