    Did you know domestic violence affects 1 in 4 women in her lifetime? That’s more women than breast cancer, ovarian cancer and lung cancer combined. Domestic abuse is not just physical, but financial too. The Allstate Foundation chose a purple purse to represent this issue since a purse is the center of a woman’s financial domain and purple is the color for national domestic violence awareness.

    Join us and take a stance against domestic violence, raise awareness and get people to openly talk about this important issue.

  5. Latina Bloggers attend Vanity Fair Lift Tour

    Leave a Comment

    This past week we were  invited to attend an exclusive bloggers event hosted by Vanity Fair® Lift Tour, which took place at The Glendale Galleria in Los Angeles. Vanity Fair is a contemporary women’s lingerie line that is sold at a variety of retailers across the country including JCPenney, Kohl’s and Sears.  The Lift Tour is an amazing campaign that is helping women in need. For every bra each women tries on during the Lift Tour, Vanity Fair is donating a bra to your local Dress for Success. For those of you who are wondering what Dress for Success is – It’s a non-profit organization that helps disadvantaged women by providing them with professional clothing for the work place!

    When we arrived at the event we were greeted by the Vanity Fair team and taken into a large bus to get fitted for our bra size. We tried on a variety of different types of bras but the favorite for many was the Beautifully Smooth  Next To Nude® Underwire Bra. After trying on our  bras, we were given a bra to donate to Dress For Success and asked to write a note to the woman it would be donated to. This was definitely our favorite part of the process. I know how words of encouragement can mean so much to our team and our community of  women. By reaching out to a woman in need with a positive uplifting message illustrates that women all over care about one another! For every fitting, Vanity Fair will donate a fabulous new bra to Dress for Success and lift yet another wonderful woman up!

    After our fitting, we were asked to write down what we supported … So of course we couldn’t leave out our fellow #LatinaBloggers. We had fun with this and marked our infamous #LatinaBloggers hashtag across the whiteboard.  The Lift Tour will be stopping by local retailers in the Southern California area, so be sure to stop by and join in on this amazing campaign!

  6. Latino Fashion Week with #TuVidaTuLook

    Leave a Comment

    During the month of July, we’d been hearing the buzz via Twitter and Instagram about Latinao Fashion Week, and thought it wold be great to check out the show. Coincidentally, Tu Familia was launching their Tu Vida app during the event and invited us and a select group of Latina Bloggers to attend and capture our favorite runway styles using their new app. Being fashion lovers and tech connoisseurs, we couldn’t resist.

  8. 8 Ways To Dominate Your Brand With G+

    1 Comment

    latinabloggers google+

    What is so great about Google+?

    In my opinion, it is one of, if not the easiest platform to build. It is great to drive visibility to your brand, it increases your social relevance and allows your brand to connect across Google to a much larger audience.

    So if you are looking to increase your brand dominance on to a larger audience using Google+, try following these tips to get you started.

    1. Complete your Google+ profile. Provide those who are taking the time out to read your updates, posts, etc. to know who they are virtually interacting with.

    2. Share your images. Google+ loves images and with the amount of content being shared, it is important to set yourself apart, and what better way than to have great images to go with your content.

    3. Engage. Encourage engagement with catchy (non-baiting) headlines and conversations.

    4. Use relevant hashtags.  Get the right people to read your content by adding relevant hashtags to your updates. And whatever you do, do not overuse hashtags.  The overuse of hashtags will get you forgotten

    5. Create specific circles. Increase your brand value by utilizing the share circle feature within G+. This feature allows you to target your content to maximize its potential.

    6. Embed Google+ within your posts. Embedding G+ posts within your site helps increase engagement and will make your brand standout more.

    7. Activate your Google Authorship. If you use Google+ and your have not activated your authorship, you must! The purpose of authenticating your authorship will allow you to easily link your Google+ profile to your content improving your overall search quality.

    8. Understand Google+ formatting.  If you are looking to create engaging posts on Google+, then it is crucial to understand the importance of using a text editor. The Plus Editor,is a tool, that makes it easy for you to format your posts for Google+ with italics, bold titles, symbols, etc. and share your message just as you want it.

    Share: Do you use Google+? If so, do you feel this tool has helped you grow your brand?

  9. Presenting the #WeAllGrow Summit by Latina Bloggers Connect!

    1 Comment

    #WeAllGrow Summit by Latina Bloggers Connect

    We, as in Latina Bloggers Connect, are finally organizing our first conference: #WeAllGrow Summit ¿Lo puedes creer?

    We can hardly contain ourselves because this has been a goal for a while, but not one we thought we’d have the guts to do. Well, we do and we are.

    It’s going to be from February 26-28 in Los Angeles, our casita. We adore this city and we’ll take any chance we can get to show it off and make lovers out of todos los que se dejen.

    LBC is on it’s way to celebrating our 4th anniversary, so we finally feel ready, not only as a company, but as a community to create something of this level.

    And by level I mean quality, not exactly quantity.

    We want to create the space and experiences for Latina bloggers and digital influencers to connect with each other and the brands they love and that love them back.

    We want those connections to be real and authentic.

    We want the learning experience to be hands-on, experiential and that you’ll go back home on a total high and with the tools and motivation to take your blog and social media presence to the next level — yes, that level you know you’re ready to step into.

    It’s all about what’s been our motto since day one: If one grows, we all grow. So let’s do this together, ¿si?

    #WeAllGrow Summit

    I have to tell you that I’m already in awe of the light and love this summit has been received with. I’ve had incredible support from women I admire whom have put together conferences that were an integral part of my professional formation as a blogger and community leader. I can’t thank them enough.

    We’ve had support from other bloggers (and even the husbands!) that have reached out to offer their skills.

    My husband has been holding the fort while I procrastinated to create.

    My LBC Team has stepped up to the plate like the incredible pros they are and are going above and beyond.

    My friends (bloggers and non) have been essential in so many ways.

    And what about my graphic design studio?! My friend Maria Virginia Troconis of Grafikisto just outdid herself with the logo and website branding concept for #WeAllGrow Summit. The beauty is thanks to her.

    But those first 25 bloggers from all over the U.S. that grabbed the first set of conference passes within two hours of announcing it and the Top 25 special sale really blew my mind. We had to make it Top 35, and those quickly went as well — even all the way to México!

    Esto es solo el comienzo. We’re going to live up to our promise because that’s what we do. At moments I wonder what the heck we got ourselves into, but then I remember to take it day by day and with faith and a good attitude forward, everything will fall into place and we’ll, together, create something very special.

    Stay connected for very special announcements and even conference pass giveaways.
