Carta del Publisher Hola Quinceañeras, I am so excited to release our new summer and fall editions full of fun girly advice to make your dream party a reality! We have continued to have the opportunity to meet so many young girls like you all over Arizona. We have inspired confidence and self-worth amongst all of them through our fashion shows, expos and beauty pageants. Though we are sad to see Amy and Esmeralda, our previous cover girls go, I’m excited for you all to meet our newest cover girls Stephanie Sotelo and Marina Ortiz, they are both so fun loving and free-spirited! Being a cover girl not only allows you to represent the magazine and quinceaneras all over AZ, but it also opens so many doors for your future. Through out the past six months I am happy to say that our QM team has grown bigger and stronger than ever. In this magazine you will notice lots of new vendors as well as former ones who are eager and ready

to work hard for you. I would like to thank my right hand woman Emma Barrios, who has helped us grow so much. I can’t forget to mention all the hard work my team puts in behind the scenes that have allowed us to nurture and produce this project. You can expect to continue to see great things from us, our models, our vendors, and our events. Thank you for your support and remember that a quinceanera is a step in your woman-hood and one step closer to your future. Don’t forget to always carry yourself positively, with confidence and with respect for yourself. This can be reflected by the way you talk, who you spend time with, the way you dress, and even what you post on Facebook. Let your inner beauty shine this summer and always. Yours truly, Fran Chavez Quinceañeras Magazine Director

Studies show that people who graduate from high sch ool earn a lot more money wouldn’t even think of not over their life time than tho completing school in today’ se who do not. I s society. You hardly have is like throwing more than a chance of making it. Quittin $200,000 down the dra g school early in. And that is just to start. next seven years of your life Instead, I encourage you will determine the quality to keep going. The of life for the rest of your life . (And perhaps, your childre n’s life too).

Just for you, we have searched the top 20 reasons to stay in school. And here they are… 1. More choices! A high school diploma is your first step toward choosing your own future. 2. More opportunity! The more degrees you have – from high-school to college and beyond – the more opportunity you’ll have. 3. More friends! School is where your friends are and where the fun is. Find friends who share your interests. JULY 2011–JAN 2012

4. More money! On average, people with high school diplomas earn about $9,200 per year more a year than dropouts. Over a 30-year career, that’s $276,000 more! 5. More fun! School isn’t just about, well…school. There are lots of opportunities to take part in sports, clubs and other activities. 6. More time! Dropouts often have to get more than one job to make ends meet. Who has time for that? 7. More to see and do! Dropping out is a good way to get stuck where you are – for life. If you want to get out and see the world, get a high school diploma.


8. Less trouble! Staying in school helps you stay out of trouble. Dropouts have a higher risk of getting pregnant or in trouble with the law. 9. Less work! It’s true. Staying in school is the best way to avoid low-paying jobs that involve hard manual labor. 10. A better future! High school dropouts are more likely than graduates to be unemployed, in poor health, living in poverty, on public assistance, and single parents with dropouts of their own. You can do better! Get On the Bus and stay in school. 11. It will make your parents proud. There is nothing better for a parent than receiving a diploma from you. Abuelita, your tios and all the family will know and will be so proud of you. 12. Guys prefer girls who have an education. Eventually in your life you will fell ready for a wedding. By finishing school, you will be in a better position to select your husband. A degree keeps you away from losers.

how to be Being a great photo subject is all about practice. With a little specific knowledge give in this page, you will conquer some of your issues, and become a fabulously photogenic person and hopefully better quinceanera pictures. SMILE LIKE A MODEL! But not with a “sticker smile”. Alos simle with you eyes. This combination makes a perfect expresión. Tap into your source of joy from within (by recalling a happy moment, picturing your beloved family pet) and let your eyes sparkle with brightness from this internal emotion. The rest of your face will follow. BONUS SMILE TIP from the world of modeling: To make your smile look symmetrical, put the tip of your tongue behind your front teeth when you smile.

JULY 2011–JAN 2012

SOFTEN YOUR STARE. Try not to stare too deeply into the camera. You want your focus to be soft, not intense. Pretend the photographer is an adorable puppy. (Aahw!) But don’t pet the photogrpaher! SHAKE IT UP.- During a long photo session, remember to shake yourself out to loosen up every once and a while. If you’re nervous, your facial muscles will tighten and your smile will look forced and fake. Close your eyes between portraits and take a deep breath before opening them again to help you relax. GET CONFORTABLE.- The more poise you have, the more likely you are to look natural and show your best smile. The most attractive pictures are a result of someone who is comfortable around the camera and knows exactly what they want. This can be learned. Practice your best smile in front of your mirror, so you can do it on command for the camera.


CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR BODY? Stand with one leg slightly in front of the other, by bending your knee and placing that foot a few inches in front of the other one). Angle your hips slightly towards that side. Put hands on hips, or keep them at sides, hands resting lightly on outer thighs. (If you are sitting, angle toward one side and rest hands on thighs). LEAN SLIGHTLY TOWARDS THE CAMERA. It adds interest, dimension, and a natural look to a photo. Think of having a long neck like a gazelle, and tilt your chin down just a bit to avoid the appearance of a double chin and also to prevent the camera from getting a view right up your nostrils. SOME PHOTOGRAPHERS SAY they get the best pictures when they tell their subject to look slightly above the lens, rather than directly at it. So give that a try. GET A FRIEND TO TAKE A BUNCH OF DIGITAL PHOTOS OF YOU, while you try out the tips above. Go over the shots and make notes about what you don’t like about them. Do look too serious or goofy? Do you tend to squint one eye? Then with that specific knowledge in mind, go back and take more photos, trying to correct for the stuff that bugged you. GIVEN TIME, you will hopefully conquer your issues, and become a fabulously photogenic person and hopefully better quinceanera pictures.

NEGOTIATE EVERYTHING! And walk away with the best deals. Quince Budget: how to negotiate with your vendors While steep discounts are unrealistic, there’s a good chance of getting a few extras thrown in. (Think an additional hour for your reception, or a champagne upgrade.) You just have to negotiate right. Here’s how.


Even if you’re working with the hottest vendor in town, there’s always room to negotiate, especially if there’s a good reason to reduce costs -- like having the quinceañera on a less-popular Friday night. Here are some more crucial pointers.



Find out what other vendors offer for the same price point, and use this as leverage. Ask about every single thing that’s included in your package. Then find out in advance what extras are going to cost -- and whether those costs can be waived.


A vendor may be willing to cut you a deal as long as you agree to something additional -- for example, he might consent to give you an extra hour of shooting, but only if you have him take your engagement photos. What you need to ask yourself is whether this will actually cost you more in the end.

JULY 2011–JAN 2012

t abou k s A e singl y r e ev at’s h t g n thi n ded i e u l c n i ckag a p r you


There’s no harm in politely asking for a deal. If vendors are excited to work with you, they may be more willing to come up with creative solutions.

You need the vendor to believe that if he or she won’t meet your offer you will walk away. Consider collaborating with your fiance to employ the old good-cop-bad-cop routine. Practice makes perfect Try your hand negotiating at a flea market to see what talking style works for you.

Perhaps one of the most difficult times for a quinceanera is giving a speech. A speech is an important part of your quince, because everybody wants to listen to you speak. Therefore it’s important to be prepared so you won’t let your nerves get the best of you. If you have stage fright or problems speaking in front of large crowds, well just develop a short and sweet speech that both your friends and family could appreciate. So how can you develop this speech without the stress? Here’s some help to make your speech short, sweet, and memorable.

Here are small samples of great speeches.“Quiero agradecerles a todos el compartir conmigo este día tan especial y esta fiesta tan linda, que no hubiera sido posible sin la ayuda de mis papás y mi familia. Gracias a todos y cada uno de ellos por su esfuerzo, su apoyo y su cariño. Los quiero mucho y los invito a seguir disfrutando del baile”.“No soy muy buena para decir discursos, pero sí quiero compartir con ustedes toda mi alegría por cumplir quince años rodeada de todas las personas que me quieren y a las que yo quiero igual. Agradezco a mi familia y amigos por haberme ayudado a hacer posible mi fiesta, que también es la de todos ustedes. Mil gracias nuevamente”.“Hoy es uno de los días más importantes y felices de mi vida y ahora que tengo la oportunidad de festejarlo junto a toda mi familia y amigos aprovecho para agradecerles su apoyo y cariño. 36

“Gracias por venir y ¡que viva la fiesta!”

i no sabes a qué hora bailar tu vals y tienes muchas preguntas al respecto, aquí están algunos consejos para ayudarte a tomar la mejor decisión.

O bien, puedes estar en el ingreso del salón dando la bienvenida a todos, recibiendo regalos y felicitaciones.

Despues de la cena:

JULY 2011–JAN 2012

Bailar tu vals al principio de la fiesta es muy emocionante porque tu no sabes cómo luce el salón ya arreglado ni quienes de tus invitados están ahí. Hacer tu entrada bailando el vals y abrir la pista de baile, resalta que por tu llegada no hay más que esperar para dar inicio a la diversión.

•Puedes pasear en limousine y llegar un poco más tarde para dar tiempo a que la mayoría de tus invitados lleguen. •Esconderte en algún lugar del salón para que nadie te vea hasta que llegue ese momento 50

Si no quieres arriesgarte a bailar tu vals al principio porque crees que no todos llegarán a tiempo, otro momento oportuno es después de cenar para volver a prender a todos tus cuates .Lo importante es no interrumpir el ritmo de tu fiesta.

El vals no debe ser muy largo. Elige uno dinámico y divertido para que mantengas a todos tus invitados atentos en ti. Bailar con todos tus tíos, primos, padrinos, amigo, etc es tediosos y aburrido y además pasado de onda. Sólo baila con tu papá y tu padrino de Xv años ¡claro, después de haberte lucido tu sola y tus bailarines!

7. Sé original, añade tu toque personal en todos los detalles, como recuerdos, invitaciones y centros de mesa. 8. No te olvides de llevar un par de zapatos extra sin tacón para el final de tu fiesta. 9. Es muy importante que tomes un buen desayuno, te dará la energía que necesites para aguantar la presión, el estrés y las prisas de todo el día. Llévate en tu bolsita un “snack” por si lo necesitas.

JULY 2011–JAN 2012

1. SONRÍE. No hay nada mas desilusionante que ver una quinceañera sin expresión en su rostro. Ese día se supone que es el más feliz de tu vida hasta ahora. Demuéstralo. Con una sonrisa le dices a todo mundo lo feliz que te la estas pasando y lo que agradeces su compañía. Si no sonríes además, tus fotos te lo van a reclamar toda la vida. SMILE.

10. Si el día de tu fiesta es en uno de los días de tu periodo menstrual se precavida y evita cualquier posible accidente. 11. Reparte personalmente los recuerdos a tus invitados y aprovecha para agradecer a cada uno por su presencia. 12. Puedes decorar el salón con globos en lugar de flores, te sale más económico y a la vista es muy llamativo.

2. Antes de la fiesta prueba diferentes peinados y maquillaje. Escoge con el que te sientas más agusto y te veas mejor.

13. Lleva en tu bolsa una colonia refrescante, y rocíala sobre tu cuello, te hará sentir siempre fresca.

3. Asegúrate de que cuentas con la seguridad apropiada en el salón de fiesta, así evitarás posibles desórdenes y accidentes desagradables.

14. Para tus fotos ten cuidado a quien contratas, fíjate que el fotógrafo realmente tenga la experiencia suficiente que requiere un evento como el tuyo. No hay segundas oportunidades para tus fotos.

4. Elabora un plan y síguelo. Comienza a planear con varios meses de anticipación. 5. Es un día de emociones, de abrazos y de besos, el maquillaje se va quedando en cada uno de ellos. Lleva contigo lápiz labial, polvo y un espejito para que a cualquier hora luzcas radiante. 6. Si quieres que tu cabello y piel luzcan hermosos recuerda que una buena alimentación es fundamental, por lo menos dos meses antes sigue una dieta rica en vegetales y baja en grasas, no te olvides de tomar mucha agua.


15. La música es el alma de la fiesta. Infórmale a tu DJ el gusto general de la gente que va a ir a tu fiesta, para que nadie se quede sentado y la pista se llene. Eso será un cierre con broche de oro.

time look, try a lipstick in a sheer color. For extra shine, put the lip gloss on over your lipstick. Always have lip balm handy for chapped lips. Acne is a #1 skin care concern for teens. Keep your face and hair clean, wash your hands frequently, and keep them away from your face. Once you begin experiencing problems, take action to avoid lifetime scarring.

JULY 2011–JAN 2012

At an early age, a light moisturizer may be called for -- but do not use heavy creams made for dry skin. Choose a product that is formulated for light skin care maintenance and does not block your pores.

When you begin wearing eyeshadow, keep it light and use trendy metallics and shimmers. Eye shadow does not have to match your eyes, however earth tones (tan, brown, gray) are very complimentary to blue, brown and hazel eyes. hanc e ys to en e and a w y n re ma in car There a a practical sk the best in ? o d p ut girl to nd kee bring o tastic hat's a eauty a tips will help b d a fan l n a a r e tu c e a n s n e e r d h u fi T yo e. -con p routin od self make -u emember, go pression. tr im at first you, bu e a gre iv g e il sm


Foundation for teens is optional. You can always skip the foundation and use a concealer on your blemishes only. Lightly dust on some loose mineral powder over your entire face to even out your skin tone, control oil, and set the concealer.
