Today after work, I had a very nice time doing a little shopping at the mall and then watching a movie with my sister. I found lots of sales throughout the mall and snagged a pair of sunglasses with a very nice pair of earrings all for just $15! Yippie! I sure do love a great sale.

After shopping, I watched Hunger Games (for the second time) with my sister. To my surprise, I actually enjoyed watching the movie more the second time around! I'm currently in the middle of the third Hunger Games book, and now I just can't wait to see how it ends!

This dress would go great with almost any colored shoe, but I decided to make a bold statement by pairing it with these floral heels. At first glance, the two prints look so similar that I just felt that they were made for each other.

These are all the ways in which I've worn these floral heels:

Work + Half an hour of Zumba!

Comments:
Today was one of those many days where I wake up and realize that I am not very healthy. Even though I don't always eat healthy, I'm more concerned that I never ever do any exercise. I always feel so tired when I get home from work that the last thing I want to do is sweat to death. Today however, I decided it was time to do a little exercise!
March 26 (7)

So today I cracked on my Wii and did half an hour of Zumba! For those of you who don't know, Zumba is a dancing-routine exercise program. I have always enjoyed dancing, so I was instantly attracted to Zumba. I'm so out of shape, that after half an hour I was huffing and puffing... haha. I guess I gotta do more Zumba to get into shape!

Do you do exercise? What type and how often? Any tips to stay motivated?

Comments:
I have a confession to make: I love the Hunger Games books! I know that may seem silly to some of you, but I have always enjoyed books such as Harry Potter, Twilight, Chronicles of Narnia, and the Hunger Games. So, you can imagine that I was suuuupppeeeer excited to watch The Hunger Games movie today!
March 23 (11)

I decided to make an outfit inspired by Fire to commemorate an important part of the 1st book were the main character wears a "Fire dress". I used fire colors of bright orange, red, and gold to kind of get the feeling of "The Girl on Fire". I also love how my fire red hair and lipstick goes with the whole look!
March 23 (10)

I really enjoyed the movie! It is always so much fun to see what you imagine in books come to life in movies.

I was so pleased when Kosher Casual contacted me to review one of their modest but modern pieces! I was especially pleased when I laid my eyes on this beautiful black skirt! This skirt is made of a soft stretchy material and moves beautifully when I walk. The breathable fabric and longer length makes this skirt one of the most comfortable and flattering skirts I own!

Many of you have told me that you admire my style because it's stylish without being vulgar or too revealing. I always try to dress conservative by using longer skirts and not showing too much cleavage. In that aspect, Kosher Casual is a great option for any of you who want to buy skirts, tops, activewear, etc. that is modestly covered up but still remains stylish and modern.

They have also invented unique accessories such as Sleevies & TeeNecks to add extra coverage to those of you who seek the extra coverage. They are pretty ingenious if you ask me!

I would definitely suggest you all take a look at KosherCasual for modest pieces you can buy online. Also, make sure you sign up here for a chance to win a $100 gift certificate at Kosher Casual!!

Thanks Kosher Casual for this great opportunity and lovely skirt! Here are all the ways in which I've worn this top:
