🧡🖤BIG LOTS Halloween Sneak Peeks of 2019🧡🖤

Hello ladies and gents
It is almost that time of year again.
When bats hang from castle entrance-ways, smiling jack-o-lanterns glow under dead trees...
Skeletons skip rope with the intestines of get the picture.
One of my personal favorite holidays--Halloween. 

I know a lot of people LOATHE my Halloween walk-throughs and store sneak peeks but I can't help myself. When I see the spooky, I gotta post the spooky. 

If you don't like this kind of content, I'm sorry. 
I will give you some time to click out of this post. 
(Hades forbid you read something against your will...)
Goodbye, my dear friend. On the count of three. 
Uh 1.....Uh 2......Uh 3.....

⚙️Self Defense Jewelry by CAKRA [Rant/Review/Showcase/Try-on]⚙️

I received some packages in the mail a while back.
California has a rape rate of 37.2 since 2017. 
With 100,000 inhabitants in the United States, by state--this number is very high. 
(With Alabama being the worst of them all, with 116.7 climbing rate.) 
But according to some statistics, it is STILL climbing daily. Probably as we even speak.
(This is not even mentioning all the other types of crime and violence happening around the world!)

Self Defense is something we hear about almost on a regular basis.
In actuality, it has become our norm to carry some form of protection.
I hear it all the time from people: "if it ever happens to me, I'll know what to do!
but when it boils down to such a time, are we really that prepared?

This is a very touchy topic for me because I've been the victim of a lot of horrible moments in my life that called for critical thinking and quick decision making. From experiences that would have ended badly, pushy individuals that couldn't take "NO" for an answer and my having to run to ensure my own safety. I can honestly tell you that never once have I been "fully prepared." Most of my experiences were spur of the moments. I felt afraid, paranoid and caught like a deer in headlights.

It's really a tactic of "Fight or Flight" in moments like these.
