A couple of weeks ago I made a flash trip to LA just to go to Latina Magazine’s 15th anniversary party. I couldn’t believe I was invited so Derek and all the family helped me out with the kids so I was able to make it.
I had lots of fun, I saw some of my bloguera friends, got to be touched-up by Cover Girl‘s makeup artists and take red carpet pictures. I didn’t take my camera but some of my friends did and Cover Girl also took nice pictures of all of us!
A lot of people shared what they remember when the first issue of Latina Magazine came but I wasn’t even living here in the States when that happened. When I came here (2001) the magazine was already between all magazines and I discovered it and I loved it. I was worried a couple of years ago when lots of magazines broke and closed and Latina’s issues where very thin but they recovered and they are the regular thickness now. I’m a regular subscriber and love it!
PS: Today I’m heading to Blogalicious in DC! I am also part of the LBC team sponsored by Sprint, so stay tuned as I’ll be tweeting with lots of photos from the conference and upon my comeback I’ll do a couple of recap posts!
Mucha gente hablaba de lo que estaban haciendo cuando salió la primera revista, qu les emocionó y todo. Yo la verdad no se de eso porque aún no estaba viviendo aquí en EEUU. Cuando llegué a vivir aquí (en el 2001) ya la revista estaba entre todas las demás y yo la encontré y me gustó mucho. Hace unos añitos me acuerdo que estaba viviendo bien delgadita y me dió tristeza porque muchas otras revistas tuvieron que cerrar o quebraron en esa época pero LATINA se recuperó y ya está gordita como siempre. Yo estoy suscrita y me encanta!

Looking beautiful, Dari. You've come a long way with your awesome blog. Have tons of fun for all the moms either working from their offices and those SAHM too.

I missed the party. I hope they do it annually. I think that'll be great. Good thing you shared your experience.
