Carta del editor Dear Beautiful Readers, We were extremely thrilled when the decision was made to make this issue’s theme about trends. We are by no means trying to change the fundamental concepts of what a Quinceanera is all about: Hispanic tradition. However, it is only natural that as times change, styles change as well as the trends. As young ladies and women we feel practically obligated to keep up with the trends right? It is my job as a publisher to report the new findings that have been brought to my attention via our sister magazines all over the country as well as my faithful clients. We really tried to interpret some of these new ideas in our covers with Karina and Lesley; statement accessories, different poses, and gave them new looks for you to follow. As a magazine we are also always changing as the market is always renewing itself, but our foundation

STAFF

stays the same, that is strong work ethic, leading by example and remaining true to our beliefs. I am excited to still have my traditional clients so to say as well as adding new ones. Remember girls, keep up with the trends, but stay true to your own personal style! Best wishes, Fran Chavez

Hola mi nombre es Lesley Rivera. Tengo 15 años de edad. Naci en Phoenix, Az., pero mis raices son de Sonora, Mexico. Asisto al 11 grado en la escuela Tolleson Union High School.

Hola! Mi nombre es Karina Griffin y soy la mayor de tres hermanos. Tengo catorce años y cumplo mis quince el diez de Septiembre. Estamos planeando una gran fiesta! Atiendo a Mesa Preparatory Academy en el nueve grado. Mis pasa tiempos favoritos son oyendo música, dibujando, cantando, y bailando. Tengo casi doce años bailando ballet en Campbell’s Dance Studio. La meta de mi vida es ser cantante pero también me gustaría ser una diseñadora de ropa o una maestra de baile. Me gustaría dar gracias a mi familia y mis amigos por todo el apoyo que me han dado, especialmente ami madre por todo lo que ha hecho por mi. También le doy gracias a Quinceañeras Magazine y su equipo por esta gran oportunidad de representar la revista con mucho orgullo y honor.

Who doesn’t like flowers? Flowers are something thrtaty. can’t be replaced at a pa Photo by: Hugo Benson

In a QUINCEAÑERA it’s a tradition that a girl holds a bouquet of flowers when she enters the church.

To save time and money buying flowers, you should buy all the flowers at the same place, like for: CENTER PIECES TO DECORATE THE CHURCH FOR YOUR RAMO CORSAGES BOUTONNIERES

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

No matter where you’re 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.

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

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?

career fits you

?

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 action.

TAKE NOTES! RE • THE WORK ATMOSPHE you prefer to work? uld wo t en In which environm or frequent travelling? Outdoor or office? Hospital TERESTS • YOUR PERSONAL IN ng humanity?

Wh necessary qualities get there, do you have the and abilities to go that far? • DRESS CODE wearing a uniform? Do you enjoy the idea of to go to work?

Would you like to have a career that requires plenty of thinking, reasoning, and creativity that keeps you occupied almost all of your time? Would you enjoy facing a new challenge every day? 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.

It may

seem that limos are the coolest most popular cars to drive on the day of your quince, but why not go for something a little more exciting. Today we have so many different transportation options, so why go for the usual. We are going to be talking about different types of transportation and cool new ideas for the way you arrive to your party.

limos unique and and busses are great, why not make original entrance can be with a a show stopping entrance with a classic car.

What’s your Choosing a color could be stressful, but worry no more we are here to help. COLOR IS VERY IMPORTANT it speaks who you are and gives you an edge. Color could be one of those things that can make a party or a fail to impress. No way?! So how can I get different colors to work for me? Well we have color all around us in nature, clothes, and art so why not get inspired.

COLOR can also determine the mood your party can have. For example if you want your party to be calming or relaxing go for more earthy tones like soft greens, browns, burnt reds, and even soft blues. But if you want a glamorous vibe go for gold, silver, reds, and black. One of my favorite and easy things to do is following the seasons. Every season has a color palette, spring has the pastels, summer the neons, fall the burnt reds, and winter the dark blues. So why limit your self with pinks and purples be original and make your party a work of art. Now we have so many options that sticking to traditional colors has been done over and over again. So here are three questions to ask yourself when picking your quince colors. What mood do you want your guest to feel when entering your venue? Have you been inspired by any art, dress, or a movie that you’ve seen? And finally do you see yourself loving this color? Use these questions to help you find that perfect color. And I guarantee your party would be a great success.

So be inspired and stay chic. 84

! p u e k Ma hat’s in Wh

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 yet sweet and classy! Every s Well here you have it, Summer/Fall one of eason the re u 2012 make-up trends.

We ke-up does how makece our n h beautiful and TRENDY! 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.

92

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!

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

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.

Who wants a normal vanilla cake when

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.

trend t s e t t o uince h inceañera. q t s o The p fearless qu For the New trend alert!

Quinceanera Magazine is proud to be the first to report the new trend for quinceaneras everywhere: trash the dress. The concept “trash the dress” is a fun photo shoot that takes place after your quinceanera, where you can wear your dress for the last time and get down and dirty in it. Although, some of you may want to preserve your dress, some of you might say, “well I’m never going to wear this dress again, so I may as well enjoy one more wear”. There are lots of ways you trash your dress, for example, wearing it to play your favorite sport, making a messy art project, go swimming, going to the beach, or an amusement park. The ideas are endless; just do something that you are passionate about.

When we arrived to the location we realized that we were on a farm with barn animals. Lilanny was wearing a white quinceanera dress, cowgirl boots, with her hair and make up done elegantly. “This is my date Jacob,” she said. We took a step back and looked up at her guest, a tall, dark and handsome horse! We were thrilled!

The next few hours consisted of Lilanny walking around the barn with Jacob, and meeting other animal friends along the way. She even started to shovel some dirt, rolled around in hay, and then decided to wash We were so excited when quinceanera off with a hose. We Lilanny Mendoza invited us to her trash the decided to throw dress photo shoot with Mauricio Rojas.

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.

n’t You are not alone. Who does girls love candy? More and more tower just like you, want to see a . of sweets at their reception. From Candyland, Willy Wonka are some of our earliest dreams of sweetness hanging from trees, chocolate runs in rivers and pillars are peppermint sticks. Scan all those photos of candy buffets throughout the web and you’ll quickly spot two things. One, candy buffets are extremely popular. And two, while some are just feast for our eyes, other seem to fall short of the heights their planners must have hoped for.

FIRST TIP: ALWAYS LEAVE IT TO THE PROS. HIRE A CANDY STATION EXPERT IN YOUR AREA

SO.. WHATS THE SECRET?

1.- Buying enough candy. Sounds

simple, but it’s key.

2.-

Decoration: It must look good and fit in your overall decoration.

3.- Start with the table, not the guest count. You don’t’ want to give one pound of candy to each guest. It’s better to have a table full of options and abundance rather than counting ounces per person. 4.-

The theme thing. Use a background to fit your candy station into your quince theme, if not, it will look delicious but an isolated decoration.

5.-

The containers: Clear and elegant. This is key. Use all sort of containers and raise some of them to create volume.

6.-

Don’t forget the take-home. Go to the dollar store and get a bunch of containers and use a sticker to personalize them.
