I was invited to an amazing event called, Today’s Woman Puerto Rico by Tatiana Cordova, a lovely young woman who works for them and Jorge Fusaro, the executive producer of the event. It was held at the Caribe Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico. This event was intended for the modern woman of today; hard worker, educated, independent, inter-dependent and influential in society, commercial world and home.
Today's Woman had a full day of workshops to enhance the Puerto Rican woman and develop a full quality of life in happiness, confidence, leadership and determination. This event firmly believes beauty goes beyond physical attributes; as this is the sum of all the features that come with being a woman.
Their mission through this and many future events is Today's Woman become a movement that has a significant impact on society by enriching the mind, body, soul and spirit of the Puerto Rican woman. At the same time, to promote positive values while helping great social causes and inspiring others to do the same.

Proceeds went to Susan G. Komen for the cure, for cancer awareness and to Casa Protegida Julia de Burgos, a shelter for battered women. I talked to the ladies. They have a heart of gold and are very dedicated to their cause.
|Ana, Daniela Droz & Sara|
The master of ceremonies was Daniela Droz. She's an actress, singer and has so many other talents...could this lady work a room! She was energetic, funny and we had a great time with her. There were many workshops there.

Lucy Pereda, a well known TV personality, gave a conference. She was promoting her new book. She was amazing a very elegant and classy lady.
They had a conference on cancer issues, sexuality issues, fashion shows and many more. My favorite conference was with Dr. Charmir Highley. She spoke about how your first impression is so important. This lady is great! She had everyone’s attention.
The booths sold makeup, jewelry, clothes and so much more. One of my favorite boutiques was the Parti Boutique. They had great prices and the owner was so sweet. My daughter Ana and niece Sara also loved it.
|Plump Couture Fashion Show|
I really liked the fashion shows. Plump Couture was the first one out with a plus size clothing show. It was great to see a plus size women fashion show; to be proud of your body no matter what size you are and not be afraid to show it...especially here on the island where plus size modeling is not common at all. Rebeca Tiago had her fashion show. It was lovely as well. To close, the one and only Carlota Alfaro! This lady is fashion designer royalty on the island. Her fashion show “Vintage” was amazing! I had a great time and when they have another event, God willing, I will be there to blog about it again. Congratulations Jorge, the activity was a hit!
