We are overwhelmed by the team‘s kindness and generosity at @kimberleyanne_bridalboutique ❤️ They donated a brand new wedding dress to the Clitheroe hospice shop to celebrate their shop being open for 3 years. 🥰
LOVE ❤️ shows itself in many ways but..
FALL IN LOVE with someone who kisses you in public and is proud to show of to anyone they know.
FALL IN LOVE with someone who falls in love with your flaws and thinks you are perfect just the way you are.
FALL IN LOVE with someone who thinks you are the one they would love to wake up to each and every day 🙏🏽 #lovequotes#love#loveislove#findingtheone#livingmybestlife
My mid-week thought as we get closer and closer to the big day is all about dating and Xmas day #talkingpoint ..... After discussing with a friend over a lunch, we talked about when is too soon to invite your date over for Xmas dinner or to spend NYE together. We had mixed opinions but agreed on one thing, inviting your date over for Xmas and spending NYE together are two very different stages in your dating life. NYE can be a good way to show each other that you are ready to be exclusive together, that you don't want to date other people and you want to bring the new year in together (aww, such a cute stage). Whereas inviting your date over for Xmas lunch or dinner is a whole another level in the dating world. This is beyond wanting to exclusively date each other as usually Xmas is spent with friends and family. Therefore you are potentially introducing your date to your loved ones. Spending Xmas together is definitely saying to your date that you are exclusive, you are ready to commit but it also says I'm ready to introduce you to my inner circle and that is saying a lot! Think about the messages you are giving your dates when you invite them to either special day. Make sure its the right message for you and the stage you are in. .
Who are you spending Xmas and NYE with? Drop me a comment if you've invited your date for either of these two special days .
Seriously. How deep is your belief in KNOWING that he’s coming? How COMMITTED are you to carving out the time to GO TO THE PLACE in your mind and body that he or she is HERE before he’s physically here? •
When you do, you’ll be so lit up and sure, that if you go on dates with lame dudes who clearly aren’t him, you’ll KNOW it’s no big deal bc you’re another step closer to Mr / Ms. Right! •
We’ve all been there.
You get hooked on the high of a new love… and then reality sets in and your newfound prince turns into a frog.
Perhaps he repeatedly doesn’t call when he says he will. Maybe he starts to cancel dates with promises to make it up to you. He might even announce that he’s actually married.
Without realizing it, you begin to adjust, rationalize and make excuses for him. You convince yourself that you’re happy with the way things are or he’s on the verge of stepping up. You spend a lot of time fantasizing about him: how he’s going to leave his wife, or stop being a player, or cut back on his work schedule. And while he does make promises in that direction, it just never happens.
As much as you try to convince yourself everything is a-ok, deep down you know it…
You have settled for second-class status.
So many woman I talk to get stuck in the Crumbs Deadly Dating Pattern. In fact, I was once there myself - before I met my amazing husband! In this Deadly Dating Pattern, we think that second-class status is the best we can get.
Don't forget the all important wedding accesories. @grace_loves_lace has some gorgeous earrings to complement every dress. 👰❤💍😍

Too early? Maybe. So I guess this year was about relationships - with myself and with him. I still don’t know anything about relationships and getting married and whatever life will become after everything has been said and done. But I do know that he makes me smile and I look forward to spending my days with my bestfriend. #topnine2019#hemakesmesmile#findingtheone

Y'all, do you know that PIMS is not just a Podcast. There is also a Blog? .
Have you read the latest post? .
This year has been odd for me. From minding my business in the area of guys to crushing a lot on the select few. I have literally gone from crush to crush this year...🤦🏿♀️
. #Prayforme 😄
This one, is about my latest crush! A friend said something which inspired this one. .
What do you think? Have you been crushing on an idea of a person and not the person? What happened?

1. Someone who respects you even when you're not around. Respect is the foundation of everything including loyalty and honesty. People lie and cheat when they don't have respect for the other person.
2. Someone you can truly be yourself with. If you have to hide aspects of yourself or pretend to be someone you're not - he or she is NOT the one.
3. Someone who loves you, even when you feel unlovable.
4. Someone who loves your heart more than your beauty.
5. Someone who never gives up on you, even when you give up on yourself.
Speaking of #5 , after my first semester of law school, I wanted to quit. I found law school to be very difficult and overly competitive. Even though I did really well in business school, I thought I was the dumbest person in law school (really!). One day I cried about it to Akbar and he told me "Rosy, if you're not in the top half of your class once grades come out this semester, you can quit but if you’re in the top half you continue." I agreed because I didn't think I'd make the cut - I started making plans to do my MBA instead. We were on a ski trip in Colorado when grades came out, and found I was in the top half of my class. I was surprised and told Akbar "I guess I will continue law school.” Akbar responded "I knew there was no way you wouldn't be in the top half, that's why I gave you the option to quit in the first place." He believed in me and, 2.5 years later, I ended up graduating law school with honors in the top 10% of my class! He didn't give up on me, even when I was ready to give up. In conclusion, he is "the one." :-)

#Wale kept it all the way real and opened up about what it was like growing up in a household where he wasn’t taught about love and concluding that the damage may have played a part in past heartbreaks and baggage he’s bringing to his relationships now.
What do you guys think about the difference of looking for love and actually being ready for it?

Ever felt pressured to get married, have a house, or a family? Felt like you were running out of time? Out of youthfulness? F**k them! You are not expired! You still have time.
Pressured to be married at 30, Jessica found herself at a crossroads. Should she give in or find her own way? (🎥: @goal.cast)
My last post did pretty well 👀 ... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And it got me thinking, over the last year I've changed my content a lot and accepted that lower engagement was part of the process. I've learn to accept it as long as the content I'm putting up is in line with my mission and something I'm proud of. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
BUT when I saw all those likes and comments flooding in, it felt good... I can't lie. That little rush hit me and I had my "you like me, you really like me" moment 😭😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The thing is we do this irl too. We want to be liked, agreed with, sexy, validated and when it comes to dating this can lead us to seek approval points over true connections. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I'm authentically myself online I'm less likely to appeal to everyone but I'm far more likely to connect with MY people. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The same rule applies offline. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When you are unapologetically and authentically yourself, when you know who you are and what you're looking for in a partner, when you raise your standards (for yourself and them) some people will be put off... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
but the right person won't be. 💞
We all have a past. Some of us with more traumatic experiences than others, but we should never allow someone who isn't willing to help us heal, grow, or motivate us judge us unfairly and take us back there.
Every heartbreak only makes you stronger and prepares you for the one and only love that will enter your life... ❤️ Louanne x #louannewardmatchmaking

Knowing and discovering your purpose in life as a woman is a journey. As you grow and develop yourself in this area of your life, it is important you know what to look for in a future spouse. All men are NOT called to cover what you carry. All men (even those with the best intentions) have not been endowed with the capacity to be able to accommodate or assimilate your vision / dream / purpose into their life. But YOUR HUSBAND will show signs very early on of being both capable and willing to COVER you as his wife which includes being able to handle whatever it is you feel called to do.
You will know heaven has a hand in bringing you together when your #futurehusband demonstrates to you in conversation and action that he has the capacity to accommodate and cover you AND what God is birthing through you.
