How to Plan XV

When it comes to entertaining your Family and Friends many activities come to mind, but only the best will make the cut. Like most guest they want to be WOWED, and finding the perfect activities for your quince is a must. Now just like the party the entertainment must be personalized. So start thinking about what you like and what you would want to share with your guest. A lot of people don™t know but you can actually have a small spa station inside your party. People can get manicures, pedicures, and their hair done while enjoying your quince. Having a small Spa Section will make your guest never want to leave the party. Another great idea is a photo both. Photo both are fun for a lot of reasons. Reason one is memories; you will have a ton of memories with each and every one of these pictures. Two; they are fun and even the shyest person will be excited. Photo booths are everywhere we have many in our directory so whatever you choose they will be great. The last idea but not ...

The Perfect Dance

Hello everyone,  Today we will be talking about your Waltz. Waltzing is one of the things that must be perfect, so I will show you how to choose  the right choreographer. As much as I like doing this on my own this one is not one of them, because a waltz should be the cherry on top. You want people to see you at your best and show off the skills you have, so I highly recommend a choreographer. Some choreographers can charge from $500 to $1000 per song, so they can be expensive, but totally worth it. Try setting up meetings with choreographers to ask questions and see what ideas he/she can create for you. things that I always look for in a choreographer is how well they can understand my idea and how well they work with it. Another thing I look for is where they teach if they have a studio that you can go to, that means they are professionals and take there job serious. Always remember that you are paying for someone’s work and that work can make you look amazing on ...

After you are done with the list try practicing your pose and taking a few selfies, you want to make sure your posing is great. Then you want to start setting up the things you will need for the photo shoot. I usually like to place everything in a visible area in my room, so I won™t forget it. Once all of that is taking care of, its time to give your self a spa day. Try making a fun facial mask with your sisters or mom and give each other mani pedis. You want to have a relaxing day before your photo shoot so that you won™t look tired or have bags under your eyes. Now to finish put y...
Hi Girls To continue with our photo shoot series we are going to talk location. Location is really important you don™t just want to do a photo session in your back yard. You want a place that will make you stand out and make the picture look amazing. I™m going to give you some suggestions to make that photo session amazing. You always want o look for natural lighting and open spaces like parks, Hotels with great view, deserts, a beach, lakes, and even neighborhoods could be great. Try to keep your eyes open when going out, you never know when you will see something you like. What I like to do is take a picture of the places I like and write down the address. I™m the type of person that always brings her camera, because you never know what can inspire you. Well girls I hope to see beautiful pictures on the page soon.     Stay inspired XOXO Danna  
  Hello Girls,    So we know your good side, and you know how to pose, so what™s next? Well my favorite part. What to wear? It all depends on the type of photo-shoot you will be doing. For example if you are doing an invitation photo shoot you are going to want to wear your quince dress, but if you want your dress to be a surprise then wear a pretty colorful dress that nobody has seen. Moving on to photo-shoots for slide shows or portraits. I feel like with these pictures you can have fun and be creative. Try putting different outfits together that show your personality and uniqueness. For the girly girl try wearing romantic pieces like floral prints and soft colors. If you are trying to go for a bohemian chic try high waist shorts and a crop top. And last but not least the rocker chic look. Rock some combat boots with leggings and leather a jacket. So I hope my suggestions help you get ready for your big day.     Stay Inspired XOXO Danna &...
Hello Everyone,   Okay so let™s continue with our series on photo shoots, today™s topic is posing. Now I’m not sure how many of you know the song VOGUE by Madonna, but it’s definitely a must play song when you’re learning to pose.  Have you ever wondered why they play music at photo shoots? Because it helps the models relax and let lose. When it comes to posing music is very important and can affect the atmosphere of the room. With posing less is more, because the non-posing photos are always the best. Okay so let™s set your camera on self-timer and dance around making little stops every time it goes off. If that does not work try playing with your hair or accessories to give the photo a playful look. Remember photography is a way to transfer emotion and feeling, so when in doubt just be you. Review all the photos you toke and see what type of emotion/ feeling best suits you Goofy, flirty, koi, sexy, innocent what ever it maybe I&trad...
 = Hello girls   Today we are starting a series on photo taking. This series will run for a week so stay tune. As many of you know we do a lot of photo shoots here at Quinceanera magazine. So we know a thing or two about photo taking. Photo shoots can be a bit overwhelming and sometimes bad. While photo shoots can be glamorous they are hard work, especially if you don™t know how to pose or bring out your best feature. Now because this is a blog and not a video I™m going to try to explain it the best I can. Let™s jump start with your face. Make sure you are in a place with good lighting (the bathroom always works). Ask your mom or sister to take different pictures of you smiling. That™s how you™re going to determine which side is your best side. Make sure you also take a picture of different angles, and that way the next time you take a selfy you won™t have to go through a million. Stay tune for the next blog you going to want to read i...

So I am going to advise you to find good family members and great friends to help you. Now don™t be harsh and start a list of bad family members and friends.

Say YES to The Dress

Hi everyone,  So how many of you are shopping around for dresses? And how many of you have tried more then 20 dresses? I bet a lot of you have. So today I™m going to help you make that process easier. Committing to one dress is harder then committing to one 1D guy for the rest of our life. Although Zayn is the hottest! Harry has it going on too. Today we have so many options that it makes it harder for us to pick a dress. We have to answer questions like what size skirt do you want? Do you want a ball gown? Do you want a mermaid dress? Do you want it bling out? So many options so little time. So lets not confuse each other with the 21 questions game and find a faster way. Asking my self these questions only makes me dizzy and confuse. So to make it faster and easier I only ask my self three questions. What color do I want? Will it go with my venue? And last but very important do I want to change out of it? So take time to answer these questions. Always listen to what you w...
Hello girls,  Today we are going to talk about something serious SKIN CARE. Now what does skincare have to do with your quince? Well a lot. Skin can affect our mood and change the way we feel about our selves. So here are some steps to beautiful glowing skin. Step one washing your face. Washing the face can brighten, polish, and wake you up. You can start by cleansing your face early morning in the shower or before brushing your teeth. Use a light moisturizing cleanser for dry skin or oil free cleanser for oily skin. Step two removing your make up before you go to bed. Although your skin is young and will forgive you for sleeping with make up, that can catch up to you. Sleeping with make up can actually cause more breakouts and dark spots, leaving your skin looking old and dirty. So please always remove that make up girl. Step three moisturizing your skin is very important. As we grown older our skin stretches and losses its elasticity, so to help our skin stretch we need to giv...
