Simple Life Hacks II- Amazon Refillable Mini Spray Bottles



 

 With the continued necessity to keep healthy 

hands and minimize the spread of germs during 

the pandemic, I opted to purchase these small

sanitizer, I can now buy the large refill bottles 

and use them to fill these spray bottles at a 

reduced cost. Whether I'm stationery at home.  

or on the go, my handy, dandy spray bottles of 

sanitizer are bound to help keep me safe.

Trendy And Plus??- Summer 2 piece Outfits Under $70

 


I love to shop. I also love to save money. When I can do both simultaneously it is definitely a win  for me.  So I was surfing the net, trying to find some really great deals in warmer weather clothing and www.Amazon.com became my site of choice. I have been a Amazon prime member since 2016 and have bought many things from them. Amazon is actually my go to one stop shop for groceries, personals, household products, etc. You name it I probably got it from Amazon.


The assignment I set for myself was to find a few short sets for the summer. Being a plus sized woman presented some what of a challenge in terms of style of clothing and price per item. We all know that fabric "costs" and clothing for the us plump gals does as well.No complaints here though. Presetting a budget for   ( $100) I set off to work. 


My search on www.Amazon.com took about 1.5 hours and yielded some great results. I ended up spending a little under $67.00 dollars. Very proud of myself indeed.


Here are my findings.I loved the style of the first outfit so much I bought it three more times in different colors. Lol. Check out my pics. Comment below on how well you think I did.

Should Black Women Submit In A Relationship Before Marriage?


Submission is defined, in terms of relationships,  as the action of yielding to the will or authority of another person. In fact, I would venture to say submission is one of they key ingredients to a successful, long term marriage. Many of the married couples i've known over the years have attested that "submission" was a uphill battle at times, meaning, transitioning from single minded self to a family unit was not easy. A lot. of love, hard work, determination and support poured in by both individuals are some of the basic essentials needed to grow a marriage relationship. 

So why are single minded men requiring equally single minded women to submit?




Going out with someone you are interested in romantically or sexually is considered dating. I believe requiring submission from someone your just "dating" is asking for blind submission. This form of submission is requiring the other party to dive all in to an all consuming, relationship, a tsunami of emotions and feelings, with no commitment or tangibles in sight. This type of  situation is emotionally draining and should be avoided at all cost. After all, you are not a "place holder", for the one they'll give their love to freely. I also believe blind submission takes the fun, excitement and adventure out of having a great time, meeting new people and building relationships with others romantically or not. 

Having open conversations and setting the record straight can avoid misunderstandings. Something I wish that I had done more of. 

Thank God I have learned better.


Always remember You are great!

                                  You are special!

                                  You are worthy!


Your happiness is King. Settling for nothing but the best is an option. Peace.

The first photo is of a laundry cart I purchased through www.Amazon.com.  It was easy to assemble, very sturdy and the perfect fit.                No more hauling heavy laundry bags or strain on my back and shoulders.
