Latina Lifestyle Blogger Conference in LA {GIVEAWAY!}

As many of you know I am part of an awesome group of ladies called the Latina Lifestyle Bloggers. What does that mean? Well the group came about almost a year ago and has been growing immensely! It is a curated international community of more than 260 diverse Latina Lifestyle bloggers, with a reach of more than 4.8 million page views per month. We connect everyday and share with each our posts and status updates, really its more like a sisterhood of Latina bloggers! So since the group was started, we have already hosted one conference in Las Vegas last fall and we are almost a month away from our second conference which is set to be in sunny and shinny Los Angeles, California!

The conference is already lining up with some great speakers below is just some of the things you can experience at the conference:
