JLuxe by Jennifer Lopez now at Kohl's #JLuxebyJLo

JLuxe by JLo

The Packaging

If you have been to Kohl's lately shopping the fragrance counter you may have come across the new JLuxe by JLo. Packaged in a box with a high-end appeal and her signature animal prints this is a far cry from the scent of a jungle. The bottle itself is a square black sleek glass with a clear square top with striped gold zebra animal print on one side accompanied with the JLuxe logo embossed in a shiny, luminous gold.  It's elegant and sensual looking and something I would keep out on my vanity.

The Scent

I somewhat expected the scent to be overpowering or heavy on the Ylang Ylang, but it isn't. It is extremely sensuous and sexy smelling. It's easily adaptable to your mood whether you chose to wear it to the tennis match or the 5-star dinner date at the top restaurant in town. The fruity top notes are fun and flirty while the heart and base give it that elegant, high-end appeal.

Fragrance Notes

·         Top: Juicy Pineapple, Bergamot, Sweet Raspberry
·         Heart: Soft Violet, Damascenian Rose, Orris, Ylang Ylang
·         Base: Warm Amber, Cedarwood, Musk

My Me Time: Online Bingo

I spend most of my time looking after my kids, and, although it keeps me occupied, there were often times when I’ve put them to bed and found that I have nothing to do. I’ve done all the chores, read the newspaper and checked my e-mails, and feel the need to do something fun. I spoke to a friend of mine about how bored I got, and like me, she’s a stay-at-home mom. She had the same problem as I did, but she told me about bingo at Ladbrokes and how it kept her entertained.

A while ago, I used to play bingo all the time at the nearest social club with my friends before I first became a mom, but as I became busy with motherhood, I found that I didn’t have enough time to play. Fortunately, my friend told me that I could play bingo online at any time of the day from the comfort of my own home, so that’s what I decided to try and see if it was all she said it would be.

She was right – playing online bingo was a lot of fun. I could play themed games, 60-ball, 90-ball and 75-ball, and could even play for big prize jackpots. Also, I could talk to other players in between games if I had a spare hour or two to myself, and have made a couple of new friends from it. In many ways, playing bingo online is far more exciting than doing so at the social club, and every time I log on, I get the buzz I used to get when I played it all those years ago.
