There’s nothing I like more than getting new perfume. This week I had one delivered right to my door and the perfume was by the and only Jennifer Lopez! It’s like a early Mothers Day gift for me! Ahhhh – so cool! Anyway, JLuxe by JLo is the latest fragrance from Jennifer Lopez thats inspired by her fierce fashion sense. I got it and immediately sprayed some on and just like all of her other fragrances – I loved it! The layers of warm amber (my favorite), cedar wood and musk mixed with a sweet raspberry scent makes it easy to wear for day or night. The scent lingers on the skin without being overpowering, just how a perfume should be! I hate those perfumes that you spray and by noon it’s as if you sprayed nothing and then when you reapply, it’s too strong. This one is just right!
JLuxe by JLO is available now at a Kohl’s near you BUT you can win your very own bottle right here!

This month, Timex, one of the most iconic heritage watch brands, is celebrating 160 years of timeless design. Since 1854, Timex has transformed timekeeping into true expressions of personal style, thanks to the brand’s affordable, fashionable, reliable, and technologically-advanced innovations season after season! To commemorate the anniversary, Timex has introduced three NEW ‘throwback’ collections this year that pay homage to the brand’s long history of watchmaking innovation and style, including The Waterbury Collection, Timex 80 and Modern Minis.
In honor of Timex anniversary, I’ve teamed up with Times to giveaway one of their retro Timex 80’s watches from their throwback collection! This collection is inspired by the popular 80’s style digital Timex watch but updated with a stainless steel bracelet. I was sent the gold with a red face and I LOVE it! Compared to the original fit that I own, this watch fits the wrist perfectly. It’s big enough to have thats Men’s watch feel without the bulkiness which is one the most important things for me when picking a watch. Another revamped detail is the gold which was originally shiny and now is a fabulous matte gold. You guys will love this!
Starting today you have the chance to win the very same watch I was sent. (see below) You can keep it for yourself or maybe gift it to a friend or loved one who is a watch lover.
How to enter:
Head on over to Timex and tell me which retro watch is your favorite, come back here and leave a comment with a link.

If you know me then you know I’m a accessory addict (especially bracelets) who love’s a a great look for less! Among the tons and tons of jewelry that I own, the one’s that get the most wear are usually the one’s that have a bold edgy feel. During my pregnancy I haven’t really been adding to my accessories so I was super excited when Meg from Margaret Vera offered to giveaway a gorgeous eco-friendly horse bit leather bracelet– I love love love it!
Margaret Vera is made up of two creative souls Meg and her brother. They design and create accessories for the bohemian soul (like me) and all of their designs have the perfect mix of tough yet chic, rustic, and delicate – it’s a beautiful madness of rugged and soft. Their best selling horse bit bracelet is made from recycled leather and comes in gold or silver with either a brown or belt leather band it looks like it cost 3 times more than the $36 price tag. Perfect classic piece to wear with a chunky watch or dainty bangles. I also loved how beautifully it fit. As recommended I measure my wrist and the bracelet fits perfectly! It will instantly become a favorite!!
Meg has even offered to give one lucky reader the opportunity to win a custom bracelet for themselves!

The nail art craze for spring is huge and it’s even got me inspired to try and get my nails all cute and pretty.
