Happy New Year! I’m Moving Abroad!

filipina blogger

Happy New Year everyone! 2018 is officially here!!! I hope you all had a fun and safe night as you brought in this fresh, new start of a day! Mine was soooo chill, probably the most low-key December 31st I’ve ever had, but I took advantage of the down time and wrote out my goals and what I envision for 2018 in all areas of my life. As one of my mentors say, most people spend more time planning out a vacation rather than planning out how they can improve and better their lives.

I found this sparkly top at no other than the thrift store. If you’re ever in need of a majorly sequined top at any time of the year, the thrift store is your best friend! I layered it with this furry vest from Forever 21…y’know, trying to keep myself somewhat warm. Hah!

2017 was a blessing in travels: Florida, visiting home in Michigan, the Dominican Republic, and the Philippines. Little did I know that trip to the Philippines in October would be a life-changing one. After prayer and some decision making, I am officially moving to the Philippines in January!!

This will be my second time living in the Philippines! I will be there for 5-8 months or until God says otherwise (i.e. I was only going to live in the Philippines for nine months last time and I ended up staying there for almost 3 years). My parents are starting a business in the Philippines so they too will be packing up their house in MI and are moving back to their home country after 37 years in the US- how crazy!!

Best believe I will be keeping you all updated on fmG and still running the blog from the Philippines! Please keep us in your prayers for safety and success as they start this business!

I pray you have a great start to your 2018 and are excited for all that is to come! Here we gooooo!

Christmastime in Chicago

My family and I went to Chicago for less than 48 hours, and mainly for business than pleasure, but with a family like mine (including a little brother I can always poke fun with) the “pleasure” portion was inevitable!

Video: Work With Your Wardrobe – Valentine’s Day

There are only three days until Valentine’s Day! Need some outfit inspiration? Check out the new video on fashion meets God’s YouTube channel! It’s all about working with what you already have in your wardrobe; I took pieces that is most likely in your closet and styled them to the girly-est girl I’ve been in a while (hehe). You can always swap other pieces and colors that you may have- just be yourself and have fun!

Warm in Wool

jireh de jose fashion meets godOuterwear is something I tend to overlook. In Michigan, you only wear it for a season, although it’s the longest, take it off once you’re inside, and…done! That’s probably why my former was a red peacoat that I wore every winter in the mitt for since high school and didn’t bother to purchase a new one until I saw this 100% wool coat at a thrift store for only $20. Long silhouettes have been very popular this season with neutral colors from off white to camel and helps elongate your figure. Just goes to show you don’t have to settle for marshmallow puff jackets (all the time)!

“When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken.”
– Psalm 34:17-20
