Latina Lifestyle Bloggers Conference

I just attended my first blogger's conference ever and it was mind blowing/life changing. I'm part of a group called Latina Lifestyle Bloggers and was fortunate to be able to attend their 2nd annual conference this weekend in L.A. We had amazing speakers on all kinds of topics related to blogging. They were so well informed and inspiring. It was great to be in a room full of bloggers! People like me, women, Latinas. If you are Latina and a blogger, join us!

Just some of our amazing speakers and the mastermind behind the collective, Ana Lydia (far right).

The event was held at the Indie Desk in downtown LA. We got a walking tour all the way to FIDM.

They even fed us! Delicious Oaxacan food from Guelaguetza Pictured is Bricia Lopez and her brother. Their father started the restaurant when they came from Oaxaca. They also gave us a mezcal tasting but I couldn't try because unborn babies don't like mezcal.

At Macy's where we got a VIP fashion show and tour of the downtown LA store. Oh yes, and goodie bags! I won a $25 gift card as well.

Without Nina, I would have never known about the group or gone to the event. So very special thanks to you. It was so nice meeting you!
