NATALIE SANCHEZ

Hola, my name is Natalie and I am fifteen years old. I currently attend Richards High School where I am a sophomore. I am a cheerleader, mathlete, and I am also in all honors classes. I enjoy reading, listening to music, and trying new things. When I am older I plan on going to college and becoming a psychologist. I would like to give all my love and thanks to my parents, my family, and God. I am grateful for all the support and love my parents have given me in everything I do. I’m also thankful for having a loving God in my life; without His unconditional love and many blessings, I wouldn’t be able to achieve my goals. Lastly, I would like to thank Quinceañ eras Magazine for welcoming me with open arms and allowing me to be apart of the Covergirl family. I am truly blessed for having the wonderful opportunity of representing this magazine. I am looking forward to my journey as Covergirl and being apart of a positive image for young Latinas.

No matter where your from we all have traditions. Whether you are Mexican, Colombian, Cuban, etc. We all have them. As a latin community we follow many different traditions for example; The replacement of the shoe, the last doll, and many more. Tradition is something you always want to keep, it represents who you are and where you came from. Although tradition can be boring and outdated, when doing it correctly it can be appreciated by your friends and family.

We have so many traditions to choose from, so how can you make sure you choose the right one?

PHOTO BY: Who Knows Photography ©1970’s

Well it’s easy! Your first step is to research all the traditions out there, by doing so you will have an idea of what you want to do and what fits your style. Then, write down the top 5. Writing five down can help you choose the one that you like and by narrowing the possibilities it becomes a little easier. After, sit down with your parents and discus the one that suits you best. Trust your parents they always know best. Finally, ask your mother, aunts, and grandmother which tradition they decided to show at their quinceanera, that should help you make your decision easier. One of my favorites and the one

that never fails is the father/mother daughter dance, that one is always a tear breaker. You want to make sure the tradition your showing brings something special and memorable, because after all you only turn fifteen once. Also don’t be afraid of sincerity, after all everyone loves a good show. Although tradition is something we need to make our quince special you also need innovation, something new or different. Think about been original and unique find ways to make your quince different fresh and new.

Being unique does not mean remaking something. It simply means to change something and making it your own. We all have different styles and attitudes so why not make a quince like you. The little changes is what’s going to make your party original, from the smallest things like the flowers, to the dress, and more. However some people may disagree with me on bringing new elements to the party, but even so new always bring excitement. You don’t always want to be a follower be a leader. So have fun and don’t be afraid of change.

Sometimes, because of all the excitement, you forget to thank your family and friends for making your quince experience a great one. We made it easy for you not to forget! Although giving a speech the day of your quince is important and sometimes mandatory, thanking your guest differently shows your commitment of growing up and maturity. The type of thank you I’m talking about are Thank You cards! Thank you cards are a must! You already have about a million things to think about, thanking your family and friends can skip your mind. So why not add thank you notes to your list of Must Haves.

rreal avo Villa BY: Gust O T O PH

I love you every body

Ok! But what are thank you cards/notes?.Thank you cards are hand written notes thanking your guest for attending and thanking them for any gifts you received from them. Writing thank you cards to all your guests is nearly impossible and where do you start? And How? and to whom? Dont’ worry we can help! Think about the people that help you the most that day, for example your court, even if they are some of your best friends, please express your gratitute. Your family ofcourse, this includes, your god parents, aunts, and uncles - show them some love with a hand written thank you note. They will feel appreciated. Even if they are your best friends and your family, make sure to use your guests full name and personalize the Thank You Card.

Now for the best part having fun with

the thank you cards. Thank you cards don’t have to be a big fancy mess, instead a nice delicate design. You can cordinate with your quince theme or use your dress colors. Or use different colors and design. there’s nothing wrong with been creative! The idea is to have fun and to show your guest you care. Traditionally thank you notes are done for weddings, baby showers, and or birthdays, but must people really enjoy getting these hand written letters because it shows how much you appreciate them taking the time to celebrate with you. So have fun with your thank you cards and be creative, honest, thankful, and inspiring.

What career fits you

Every year thousands of students graduate from the university and head for a professional career. As you are deciding about what you will be doing in life, the critical step is to decide upon what type of a career is good for you. In other words, what are YOU suitable to?

?

A number of studies with students demonstrate that many students experience lack of information, conflict, and decision taking worries about profession selection. Many exhibit a negative attitude, feel under-qualified and assume a fatalist position.” I do not even know what I want to do- I will be never be able to do what I really want- I will not be succesfull in this field- It is so difficult to get the job I want, one needs to know the right people for it”. Thoughts like these will have a negative impact on you, they will stop you from taking an initiative and starting and

How interest are you in learning a new technique every day, which in turn broadens your world vision continuously? All of the above are factors to consider while choosing a career. Yet there is more to think about. As you start your work life other factors like medical aid, pension schemes, bonuses, paid leaves, support for dependants and so and so fort will become important. However, keep in mind that those days are over, and try to make the best out of every new experience you gain at work- after all, this is YOUR career! Know what you want, always do your best and remember what you will gain in the end.

You want to make sure your court is comfortable and has fun, after all they did work hard practicing all that time. So they should at least have fun on the bus. But what if you just want to make a great entrance? Well then we go for the luxury cars.

This next trend is more for after the quince or if you have 2 dresses. The trend is TRASH THE DRESS! Yes you read right TRASH! When

I saw this trend I couldn’t believe it, but after I saw all the pictures I was wowed! The way this works is if you have two dresses decide which one to trash. You want to do things that relate to who you are and what you like. But if you don’t have two dresses then trashing it after the quince could be a memorable experience that you will remember for years to come.

I’m not talking about literary going to the trash can and trashing it, but doing things you never thought about doing with your dress on.

For example horse back riding, going to TIP the FOR beach, painting, YOUR TRASH THE playing aDRESS sport,PHOTOSHOOT: swimming, and so much more... Your photographer must be very creative. He will produce the 80% of the picture. You and your braveness will do the rest.

CONGRATULATIONS IT’S A GIRL! Your Quinceañera the most

anticipated birthday since the day you were born. You and your parents have been dreaming and planning your quinceañera celebration for years. Capture that special day and tell your story using the very new, very popular, very TRENDY art of Cinematography!

PHOTOS BY: Hugo Benson y Gustavo Villarreal

The capturing of a special event celebration such as a Quinceañera has evolved thru the years, amongst the most common; a standard video, blue ray, and now the art of cinematography. A cinematic video is created by DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) cameras, which also have the ability to photograph. A DSLR camera is comparable to a filmmaking camera with features such as the capacity to interchange different types of lenses, which provide different dimensions to a traditional video proving realism to your story. The results a simple scene will tell viewers a story, while composing photos in motion, a concept similar to today’s movies.

Imagine that, tell your unique story through timeless emotion and style, and capture the essence of your fiesta as it happens, highlighting the best moments and the best part

We all love to be in trend and know what is going on in the fashion industry, and with make-up it’s no different. We are always going through magazines (like Quinceañera Magazine…that is) and looking at publications to see what models are wearing on the runway along with our favorite celebrities. Well here are the top trends that have made Spring/ Summer 2012 just a bit more BOLD, Shimmery, colorful, and catty…but

Well here you have it, Summer/Fall 2012 make-up trends. Now take bits and pieces of all your favorites and make it yours, be trendy by mixing and matching to make a statement and show who you are! Because you are you… young, fun, beautiful and TRENDY!

Every s one of eason the re us are a bit m is somethin more s gf or w also ca eet whateve e bold and or every r it ot n no righ be in TREND is that you her a bit like…. t/wron ! As I you g w up sho uld be way or rules ays say, ““T here is done. with in that sa Ma str y embra uctions! We ke-up does how makece our n h artistry old the pow ot come er with and us in us to e it to Here are the trends now our ad v antage make them yours: ”. BOLD COLOURED EYES

Bright, bold colors hit the runways turning heads and leaving people speechless. We are seeing electric colors being swept from inner eye socket to the outter lid something that for sure will get attention! Some of us are bold and other a bit more sweet whatever it is that you like….you also can be in TREND! As I ways say, ““There is no right/wrong way or rules that say how make-up should be done. Make-up does not come with instructions! We hold the power within us to embrace our artistry and use it to our advantage”.

METALLIC EYES

Wow….my fav! You could never have too much bling (well in my EYES that is… lol), metallic and glitter eyes are adding a lot of bedazzle to the runways and big events. Some big designers are using gold or silver leaf on the entire lids; others are using glitter. Either way both will give a reflection of true royalty.

54

July-December 2012

CAT-LIKE EYES

Who said that being a bit catty …couldn’t be fashionable? A lot of leading designers have swooped the black liner and false lashes on the outer corners to really give you that dramatic, cat-like look! From a soft winged liner to the over the top almost reaching the brows it will for sure be PURRR-fect.

COLOURED LIPS

Brightest blue, lime green, fuchsia and all shades blues may all be pretty color to look at…..but what about on your lips? Yes, all these colors have joined the classic red and plums. For an eye opening look that really spills color out of your mouth!

DOLL-LIKE PRETTINESS

Being young and beautiful like yourself always pays off…dewy skin with a gentle blush, pale pink lips and a coat of mascara are your top ingredients for a super pretty, doll-like look. Young, fresh, and clean is the look that many designers chose for their looks something that you might even already be doing….you trendy little girl!

Who wants a normal vanilla cake when

you can have a red velvet, chocolate passion fruit, or strawberries and cream cake.

Currently we have so many different flavors that you can use on cakes, so why go for boring old vanilla. When you could have a delicious chocolate with buttercream, and have your guest drooling over your cake all night.

But why limit your self to just a cake? why not a cupcake? Cupcakes are great substitutes for cakes, they have individual servings and can give your party that original WOW! factor you want.

NOW ON TO MY FAVORITE, the type of cake. The way you can determine what kind of cake to go with, is asking your self these questions. Do I want to have a cake at the ceremony? If yes, go with a normal but fabulous cake. If no and you want to have more than three flavors on a cake, Then cupcakes are your best bet.

Themed entertainment

Themes

can range from conservative, such as nature, patriotic or opera themes to wild and crazy like Mardi Gras, Las Vegas, Cirque de Soleil. Here are some tips as to how to choose the right theme, including entertainment ideas. And very unique in a quince, because they take a simple floor and light it up. You could also be sure your guest will

want to dance and do the boogie.

You can add fun element in a party by adding entertainment. This can be as simple as setting up a horseshoe tossing competition for a western themed party or hiring a belly dancer for an Arabian nights party. As food is a very important part of party planning, it can also be incorporated into a form of entertainment. your guest can always have seconds.

HERE SOME IDEAS... In planning

a theme party, pick something that you have some kind of knowledge of. It would be quite difficult to put together a Harry Potter party if you have never read any of the books or seen any of the movies. Keep in mind that the theme should start with the invitations, then continue with decorations, food, music, games and entertainment. Also consider the resources available for this theme.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST Planning a party

quinceanerasmagazine.com

62

July-December 2012

can be a lot of work. If you are looking to choose a theme, do not be afraid to ask potential party goers for their input and advice. Mull over a variety of possibilities, then pick a theme which is best suited for your situation. You should also keep in mind the guests who will be attending the party and also, your knowledge of the party’s theme.

WHEN IT COMES TO JEWELRY FOR YOUR QUINCE YOU HAVE DIFFERENT OPTIONS. FOLLOW A HISTORIC TRADITION, BE A CLASSIC QUINCEAÑERA, OR BE A TRENDSETTER!

ARE YOU A TRENDSETTER?

Have you considered wearing custom jewelry at your quince? Custom jewelry the latest trend in jewelry for quinceañeras! Silver, gold, colored, stones, gems, feathers, your options are endless!

YOUR CLASSIC QUINCEAÑERA LOVES BLING, BLING, AND BLING! Most quinceañeras have been wearing matching sets of earrings, necklace, and bracelet made out of pearls, rhinestones, or crystals. The more daring quinceañeras will select a set with colored rhinestones to match her dress.

Traditionally the quinceañeras godparents present a gold rosary or a gold necklace with a locket or medal at the religious ceremony. The quinceañera wears this necklace for the rest of the night. PHOTO BY PHOTOBELLA

Girls, fashion in a Quinceañera dress has changed; from a traditional white, to pastel colors and now bold vibrant colors, fashion in shoes from flats to heels to chik chux back to heels. Be a trendsetter, consider custom jewelry for your quince, after all you don’t need to be bedazzled with the bling, bling, bling…. you will shine simply because YOU are a gem
