My Faith.....

Goodbye 2013!!!!!!!
Wow what a year this has been for Faith Family Fashion ..   "My Faith" has really been an inspiration to others . I've recieved so many wonderful emails - I'm so greatful for all of you who read Faith Family Fashion . My prayer is that I continue to inspire others with my Fashion , Faith , and my new healthy lifestyle . I'm happy to announce that after two months of 'Clean Eating" I'm down 20lbs and counting :)
If you believe you can ,you will .. Never give up on you , Never let anyone tell you , you can't do anything ...  Keep God first place  in your life and everything else will fall into place. As 2014 is approaching set goals daily ,weekly, monthly . No goal is too small or too big . Live well, Love much ,Laugh often ... and don't cry because it's over smile because it happened :)
Lets all make 2014 a year to remember ..

Blogger Inspired (Joggers)

The moment I saw her look I knew I had to recreate it to fit my style . I feel that's the most important thing to remember - no matter what or who inspires you , you should always stay true to yourself .

My Faith.....

Happy Monday!!!!
This months series of "My Faith" is all about health. After last months not so good doctors report I knew it was time for me to get on the right track . The first thing I did was pray , I asked God to make me over not only physically but mentally . Before any lifestyle/diet  change could  happen I knew I had to get my thought processs together . I immediately blocked out all the negative thoughts ... I have no time to cook , what if I fail again , I'll never be back to my pre- wedding size , girl just embrace those curves/ extra pounds .
The next step was choosing the right eating plan that worked for me . So I went back to what I know  "Clean Eating" (unprocessed my life) This way of eating is not a diet , there's no counting calories , no point system etc....  Basically fresh fruit , fresh produce, nuts, and lean meats (no beef) and no dairy .
My goal is to live a healthier life . This time around I made up in my mind this can't be a diet this has to be a lifestyle change , and I know that with prayer and support from my family I will reach my goal weight so I can live a long healthy life . If you want tips or meal ideas  follow me on Instagram @melissafff or feel free to email me with any questions . Lets all motivate each other :)
Prayer of the Day
Heavenly Father, thank You for the strength to make it through any challenge I may face. I choose to put my trust in You. I declare that You are good and faithful. Thank You for equipping me for victory in every area of my life in Jesus' name . Amen.

My Faith

 Hope you're having a wonderful work week . This months series of "My Faith" I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite motivational books , that have helped me over the years . Reading is my relaxation it calms me when I'm thinking too much or when I need a social media / blog break .
I love reading the old way , turning the pages, highlighting quotes etc.. no kindle books here lol
"The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne- help me to change my thought process
"Our Spirits Renewed" by A.D. Roberts - gave me a refreshing new look at life's greatness
I hope these two books are just as much a blessing to you:)

Dew You

mountain dew t-shirt (Menswear/Walmart) skirt (F21) heels (Gojane)
accessories (Thrifted)

The moment I saw this tee I knew I had to have it in my wardrobe,  You all know how much I love menswear paired with feminine pieces .By pairing a pencil skirt and 6inch heels with a graphic tee you go from casual to chic without trying too hard . Throw on a bold lip and the right accessories and you're ready for happy hour with the girls or date night with the boo .So the next time you're out shopping stop by the mens department you just may find your perfect tee:)

The highs and lows of Fall in Florida that is ... Can be amazing somedays and other days I'm wishing I lived up north where there's actually seasons . I know some of you who live in the north think I'm crazy right??!!!  I  know ... "I live where you vaction" well I'm ready to see leaves falling and snow on the ground but instead it's 90 degrees + So until I convince the family to move north I'll just dream of the perfect Fall weather .
