It’s been a while! I’ve been busy after having my first little girl named Olivia Nicole (see my little diva below) but I’m back with a giveaway just in time for Mother’s Day! One of my favorite gifts to get is perfume, especially when it’s branded by none other than Jennifer Lopez, and that’s exactly what we’re giving away! We have JLo’s latest fragrance JLust by JLo and it’s amazing! JLust expresses Jennifer’s sophistication and feminine style, with notes featuring mandarin, apple blossom, mara strawberry, jasmine, white peach, vanilla orchid, feather musk, tolu balm, and tonka bean. It’s has a slight candy scent that makes it sweet, but not overpowering. And, just like all of JLo’s fragrances, it lingers on the skin, which I love!

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!

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!

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.

**Updated & Closed**My Favorite Thanksgiving Side Dish: Spicy Mashed Sweet Potatoes + Win a $25 Target Gift Card
The winner of the $25 Target gift card is: Susan DeVaux. Congratulations Susan and thank you to everyone who participated!
My husband is the one who does all the major cooking for all of the holidays. My role is to put together the menu, shop for all the ingredients, cook side dishes and plan out the entertainment. I try to balance out his hard work in the kitchen by whipping up simple side dishes that don’t require me to ask for any guidance. In our house it’s all about team work and keeping everything fun. My favorite side dish to cook for Thanksgiving is spicy mashed sweet potatoes. It’s the perfect side for the turkey and gravy, stuffing and even vegetables like green beans. Below is a quick step by step recipe to make the spicy mashed sweet potatoes.
2 lbs sweet potatoes
6 tbsps butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cayenne
2 tbsp brown sugar
Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into pieces.
Boil in salted water for about 15-20 minutes or until soft.
Drain and mash with a fork.
Add butter, salt and pepper, cayenne pepper, cinnamon and beat well.
In a few simple steps you will have a delicious side dish you can call all your own! All that’s left to do is set the table (see my favorite silverware below) and set the mood with festive music (my husbands favorite part) and lighting (see candles below). To help you get your Thanksgiving day started I’ve teamed up with Target to give away a $25 egift card that you can use to get your kitchen ready for the holiday’s with all the amazing goodies in the Target wedding registry.

Like a lot of people, I record shows but hold off on watching them so I can have a little marathon at the end of each season.

For those of you who are missing out, get ready to get sucked right in! Single Ladies is set in Atlanta and centers on three friends with completely different perceptions of relationships, sex and of course love. Think Sex and The City with a ton more drama!
The Single Ladies e-book is set up as a season 2 finale and season 3 premier connector which not only serves to get you caught up on the show and hooked, but for die-hard fans like me it’s a great quick fix in between seasons. The e-book that is available on

The Diet Dr Pepper
Just last weekend I went shopping for some spring shoes and I knew I wanted booties. At first I was looking for a black and brown pair, but then I saw this tan suede pair with a gold platform and they were only $20! Right away I knew that they’d be perfect to dress up or down so I snagged them right away. The first outfit I wore them with a pair of mint green skinny jeans, a simple white tee, a boyfriend blazer and a polka dot scarf. For my second outfit I wore the booties with my go-to skirt and a chambray top. I love the way it gives the black skirt a more laid back look without taking away the dressy part. This particular outfit was under $100 and I’ve worn each piece a ton of different ways.
Not bad for a pair of booties that cost only $20! Check out some of my other day to night looks below.
