Last fall, LATINA and KODAK joined forces to sponsor an exciting photo contest inspired by Latina media tycoon Nely Galán’s own personal photos. Entitled “Your Life In Pictures,” the competition aimed to celebrate the most inspirational snapshots submitted by LATINA’s own readers.

We have a star in the making on our hands. Latina staffer and "Losing It" bloguera, Nicole Toro, sang as one of the Rawkettes with Reggie Raw this past Tuesday. The crowd at NYC nightclub Don Hill’s was grooving to the soulful, funky, R&B sounds all night. And you know Latina was in the house cheering Miss Toro on.

After months of consideration, I did it—I got bangs. I was inspired by a picture of Camilla Belle that ran in the February 2009 issue of Latina, and had been carrying it around with me ever since. The idea of cutting my hair was nerve racking because I hadn’t had bangs since the first grade, but luckily for me, I was in the hands of Antonio Rosa, owner of Senses New York Salon & Spa.

We’re just about finished with our June/July issue, and for us that means it’s the perfect time to take a little break. Usually, we’re working on three issues at the same time—planning for one and editing another while one is being shipped to the printer. But since June/July is a double issue, we actually have some time to sneak away for some R&R.
Here are some of the locations you'll be able to spot Latina staffers over the next couple of weeks:

The Ab Coaster is here! This is a machine that basically kicks your abs. Latina is an office of mostly women, so we've been talking about getting bikini-ready for a while now. You can imagine our excitement when we got an email saying an Ab Coaster would be dropped off at our offices for us to test. We could barely contain ourselves.

We are honored and proud to announce that Latina has been nominated for an SPD redesign award. Society of Publication Designers chose our December 2008 issue as one of the medal finalists in the Redesign category. More than 6,000 entries were considered for SPD medals. This is the first year Latina has been nominated, and we should also point out that it was the only nominated magazine with editorial content dedicated to an ethnic audience. Latina also won three merit awards for design and photo categories for our June/July, October, and November 2008 issues!

I mean, the girl is a pro; she was engaging and looked great on TV. We love the clothes Angelique picked to accentuate the abs, which was the segments theme. Enjoy the video below:
