Diary of a First Time Mom is excited to promote JLust by Jennifer Lopez, a fabulous fragrance recently released. Although I received some form of compensation, all opinions are my own. Dear Diary, This Mother’s Day, I’m celebrating not only being a mom but also being a woman, which is something I often forget to do. I always remember to buy new clothes, make hair appointments and schedule stress free, fun activities…for my daughter. When it comes to taking care of myself, like many moms, those tasks slip to the bottom of my to-do-list. I tell myself that I don’t have the time, money or desire to put myself first. But I’m learning that when I feel good, smell good and look good, it benefits both myself and my daughter. Here’s how you can do the same, no matter how big (or little) the budget. For $100, I can escape the daily grind at the spa and get a massage or facial. And if the budget doesn’t allow this expense, I can make my a natural cleanser at home with what’s already in the refrigerator–ingredients like avocados, lemons or yogurt. For around $50, I can buy a bottle of perfume, like the recently released JLust by Jennifer Lopez sold at Khohl’s. Alluring and sensual, this fragrance makes you feel sophisticated and feminine. When I wore perfume–before I became a mom–I always was always attracted to fruity fragrances. JLust has notes of mandarins, apple blossoms, strawberries, and white peaches. Something as simple as spraying perfume can transform you. I’m always rushing when I get ready in the morning–spending more time grooming my little one than primping mommy. So spritzing was uplifting! I smelled good–and people took notice! I was never really a wall flower, but when I became a mom I sort of shriveled. I didn’t focus on fragrances. I was more concerned with coffee. But now I know, I can do both–and it’s refreshing and reviving. I can be a mom and a woman a man lusts after! And I can smell good even in my pajamas, curled up on the couch watching JLo’s hit drama Shades of Blue. For $20, you can hit happy hour! I bought this dress months ago and waited for a big celebration to pull it out of the closet. Then, I decided to celebrate life! My sorority sister and I shared cocktails and conversation. To help me remember to take care of myself, I creating a #JLustList, featuring things I’m currently lusting over. You can win one of these items! I’m giving away a bottle of #JLustbyJLo.
