Movie Review: Step Up 4: Revolution


If you read my last post about Zumba then you already know I love to dance.  I’ve seen every one of the movies in the Step Up series.  While the story lines aren’t always Oscar contenders the dancing and choreography is fabulous!  Plus, it’s in my favorite city, Miami!  In the latest installment, the two leads in the movies are Sean and Emily. Emily is the daughter of the hotel developer that Sean works for.  In real life the former had no former dance training and the latter had never acted.  That being said, their dancing is just inspiring.  The storyline reminds of Breakin 2 Electric Boogaloo in which the local dance community center needs to raise $50,000 to make the necessary repairs, but a developer has other ideas for the space.  In Step Up Revolution, the dancers are rallying to save the local neighborhood from a developer building a hotel on their neighborhood.  Hmmm sounds similar.  I loved it, I give it 3 stars. Check out the official trailer here  Let me know what you think!

Zuuummmba Baby!


I have always loved to dance so when I found out there was an exercise class called Latin Heat at my local LA Fitness in Woodbridge, I was ecstatic!  There’s something about being able to dance and get in shape at the same time that appeals to me.  The music is fast paced and gets you moving, don’t get it twisted though, the class is high intensity and the first few times I took it I was ready to quit halfway through.  If you haven’t tried it, that is your assignment for this week, go find a Zumba class.  Here’s the main website and here is the Woodbridge, LA Fitness site if you are in the area.  I love Patricia’s class on Monday and Friday.  Let me know what you think!

Black and Yellow…..


I love wrap dresses.  I love how they cling to a woman’s body while making her feel feminine and sexy.  I purchased this dress from a little shop in Georgetown a few years ago called Fresh, my friend Kim owned it.  I love how a dress is an instant outfit, “Pouf” just add accessories. I added the flower from H&M, along with my favorite shoes from Nine West.  My DKNY watch doubles as a bracelet of sorts and my Forever 21 earrings that I paid $4 for always get rave reviews.  Ray Ban Aviator‘s are a great accessory to have for everyday wear, I found these at Sunglass Hut at Tysons. The best addition by far, is my Jemma Morris clutch that I purchased at this year’s Crystal Couture from Jemma herself.  You can find her bags here on Etsy. An easy day.

Destination: South Beach


A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to travel to Miami for a little business and a lot of pleasure!  I stayed at The Mondrian which used to be a Condominium building that has been converted into a beautiful hotel.  It’s a mix of modern contemporary and eclectic design.

Dinner at the restaurant Asia de Cuba was fabulous!  My favorite dish was the Shrimp, Snapper and Watermelon Confit Caviche and the Pan Seared Jumbo Scallops.  Simply Divine.  Our bartenders Ivan and Roger were the best, serving up my favorite shot, the Raspberry Kamikaze and other birthday shots.

The only strange thing in the hotel was the weird lady on the wall when you come in and on the living area wall in our room.  She gave me the creeps! I loved the room otherwise; we had a little kitchen that we had fruit and mimosas at every day, a really neat shower that I couldn’t stay out of, and a bed that was uber comfortable.

I spent Saturday morning at the spa, Aqua.  I had a fabulous mani/pedi and a lavender body scrub that was fantastic.  I love to shop and roam Lincoln Road and Bal Harbor.  Models grow on trees here and I came across this one particular beauty going on a go see.  Last but not least, another sort of beauty, A Lamborghini.  All in a days view in South Beach. Have you been to South Beach lately?  Where did you stay and what did you see?  Let me know!

Ciao
