Looking back at 2016, I have so many things to be grateful for. Most of the goals on my vision board were achieved, some beyond my dreams! I have so many blessings to be thankful for, I don’t know where to start!
I have decided to share some of the moments that I’m really thankful for and people I should say thanks for all they have done for me!
I’ve worked with 89 brands this year so far. I don’t want to fall into the mistake to miss some of those amazing brands who gave me the honor to feature them on my blog! I do want to highlight some brands which gave me the honor of partnering with them on a larger scale:
BestBuy Macys Disney Aveeno Suavitel Touchstone Crystal
Some networks have given me the opportunity to work with them all year long, opening doors to opportunities I would not have had without them. Here are the networks which have been instrumental to Trendy Latina’s success this year:
We All Grow
Very Special People
Some people and groups have been instrumental to my success this year, for so many reasons – here are some of them:
Danica Kombol and Everywhere Team– supported me in so many ways and sponsored me to Blogalicious Conference.
Best Buy Team – their support not only allowed me to attend conferences, which were out of my budget, but also gave me love and appreciation all year long.
Disney Team – they have made my dream come true; to be invited to DSMM for the second year and invited me to a private “Elena of Avalor” event in the happiest place on earth! They are a joy and dream to work with!
Whole Dime Team – supported me with so many amazing campaigns and larger blogger opportunities
Laura Rossi – for believing in me and building a stronger relationship with the brand she represents.
Stacey Fergusson – gave me the opportunity to be a part of a keynote panel at her Blogalicious Conference. One of my dream goals on my vision board!
Les Vail – allowed me to share a long social media series training at Gloucester County Chamber.
Tiffany Noth– for inviting me for the third year to speak at Bloggy Con, a conference I have near and dear to my heart.
I was loaned 24 vehicles in 2016 so far, but 3 brands have really partnered with our blog in a special way:
Ford – for allowing me to be a part of the driving energi program and having a Ford Fusion for a longer term.
Nissan – for loaning me the highest amount of vehicles this year and including us in so many great events.
Hyundai – for inviting us to one of the most fun press trips I’ve ever been invited to!
I can’t wait to share of the opportunities that have recently come in my inbox, the launch of our online blogger program and so much more!
I have many other people I should have included in this post, but as I said, these are my highlights, I couldn’t possibly say thank you to everybody who has helped me 2016!
I’m ready and open to embrace more blessings and amazing things!
But never forgetting, it all starts with gratitude! #Believe
Thank you, Gracias, Obrigada!

It’s very poor in this time of year to stop and remember all the great things we’ve been given over the year. Sounds like you had an amazing year and I can’t wait to see what happens in 2017
I think it’s great that you took the time to post on this subject. There are so many people and brands in my life that I’m grateful for and to, I need to remember to tell them thank you.
OMG look at those shoes!!! I love them. Congratulations on a great year. I am ever conscious of gratitude and I feel very fortunate to make a great living doing what I love. I am impressed that you counted the brands that you worked with!! I might have to do that. Not sure I kept track as well as you did though.
It’s definitely the time of year to be introspective and figure out what you have to be thankful for. Set your karma up well for 2017.
