Why I Stopped Using CLINIQUE 3 Step Collection

My Beginnings With CLINIQUE

1. My mother told me about it. It was something she saw in a magazine or newspaper and she thought that it would be good for me.

2. I also, having an avid interest in skincare, skincare products, beauty products and wanting to have great, beautiful skin, and for my skin to look it’s best, years ago, I tried and started using CLINIQUE Three Step Collection.

At that time, in my young adult years, by the grace of God, I could afford it and the upkeep; maintenance of the product. At least, in my mind and my thinking at that time, I “thought” I could. Now, I have a better understanding of money and value. I did “literally” and “tangibly” have the money to buy it and replenish it when I needed more, it was an investment into my skin and appearance, however, I didn’t have any assets, stock, or long term valuables. But this subject is for another blog and blog post. I have a personal blog about Financial Wealth Management called, Fabulous Finances. Follow to receive posts!

I would purchase CLINIQUE 3 Step Collection from my local, at that time HUDSON’S department store. It is now Macy’s. I still remember the light yellowish big block of facial soap and the sea foam green soap dish – case with the words CLINIQUE across the top of it. I started with the collection for Combination Skin and began switching the toner out for the Combination Oily toner. It became my daily and nightly skin care routine, until I noticed that my skin began to turn dark!

I stopped using it. And I personally, am leary about using it again. It is one of those you know that it did this to your skin, type of thing, therefore you are not going to or don’t want to use it again.

I am African American. I had or have sensitive skin. My skin may have become non sensitive or I just haven’t encountered anything that has irritated it lately.

This is my first hand personal experience with CLINIQUE 3 Step Collection. If you have experienced anything like this, please feel free to share your experience below.

Sex Does Not Equate Love©


Sex does not equate love.

Charity which is love:

Suffereth long, and is kind;

Envieth not;

Vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

Doth not behave itself unseemly,

Seeketh not her own,

Is not easily provoked,

Thinketh no evil;

Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

Beareth all things,

Believeth all things,

Hopeth all things,

Endureth all things.

(Reference 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 KJV)

Prenuptial Agreements Are Not Of God©


​I have always felt that two people who decide to get married are not to create or sign and should not create or sign prenuptial agreements. 

In reading my textbook for my LEGL 215 class, it briefly covers prenuptial agreements. The textbook definition really enforced my stance against it. I won’t quote it verbatim here, due to copyright laws, but I will tell you in laymen terms that a prenuptial agreement is made before two people get married and is when two people note what belongs to each person in the other person’s property. (What?) (Huh?) 

Usually people who have alot of wealth make out prenuptial agreements.

The definition of prenuptial agreement given by Merriam-Webster:

prenuptial agreement:

law: an official agreement that two people make before they marry in which they state how much of each other’s property each will receive if they divorce or if one of them dies.

prenuptial agreement:

an agreement made between a man and a woman before marrying in which they give up future rights to each other’s property in the event of divorce or death.

Typically, whatever assets that remain when a spouse dies goes to the surviving spouse anyway, there wouldn’t be a need or purpose to create a prenuptial agreement in the event that one spouse dies.

Why are prenuptial agreements not of God? 

It totally goes against God’s idea, creation, and pronouncement of marriage. (Plan A)

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. – Genesis 2:24 (KJV) (Bold Emphasis Added)

For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;

And they twain shall be one flesh: so they are no more twain, but one flesh. – Mark 10:7-8 (KJV) (Bold Emphasis Added)

What is his becomes her’s. What is her’s becomes his. They become one flesh. 

A prenuptial agreement does not include or promote “one flesh”, “oneness”, or the outlook of a lifelong marriage, till death do you part. If you have to consider a prenuptial agreement before getting married, you should reconsider getting married. You’re not ready. You’re still thinking about you. You’re thinking about the possibility of your marriage not succeeding. You’re thinking about your money. You’re thinking about your assets. A prenuptial agreement is a Plan B. 

Plan A: God’s Idea, Creation, And Pronouncement of Marriage.

Plan B: Prenuptial Agreement

GIVE©


If you continue to take, take, take and never give, give, give, you block the reciprocation of giving and it being given back to you. – BDW©

“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again” – Jesus  (Luke 6:38) (KJV)

Once it leaves your hand there is a cycle that takes affect. A cycle of it returning back to you.

Picture the starting point of a circle. The circle is not complete until the end of the circle meets the start of the circle.

In fact, it cannot successfully be called a circle without this process taking place. It must be circular in form. It must have a starting point and a ending point. It must return back to it’s starting point.

Likewise with giving it must reciprocate. It must make a return for something done or given.

The Amplied Bible states it this way, “Give, and [gifts] will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will they pour into [the pouch formed by] the bosom [of your robe and used as a bag]. For with the measure you deal out [with the measure you use when you confer benefits on others], it will be measured back to you. – Jesus (Luke 6:38) (AMP)

This is a no-fail giving principle! It shall be given unto to you! Jesus said it!

GIVE, for it will surely be given back to you! 🙂

Disclaimer: Knowing when to give, what to give, and what to give to, is of the essence. Allow God to direct you and you will be just fine.

Until Next Time,
Bridget
