Cosmo for Latinas #CFLFunFearless 2014 Awards sponsored by Covergirl including #instaGLAM Collection, flowers


Ascending Butterfly is a community all about empowerment and when you get the chance to attend an event that celebrates those who to go battle for causes they believe in, you just have to jump on it! Cosmopolitan For Latinas recently hosted their Fun Fearless Latina 2014 Awards where 12 Latinas from pop music to politics were honored.

COVERGIRL #instaGLAM Collection


There were headline makers and industry shakers who all came together for an incredibly inspiring evening. One of the title sponsors was COVERGIRL Cosmetics who featured their latest Katy Perry's instaGLAM Collection.

I had a chance to join the Press Line as everyone entered and here is a mix of some of my own shots, interspersed with some shots from the Pro Photog as I couldn't capture everyone on the 'receiving line':

Becky G definitely has a big personality! She performed live during the awards,here is some video of her performance:

Since I was at a weird angle, I thought I should include a 'Pro Shot':

I know with Perez people either love him or hate him, but either way I think we can all agree he definitely brought the business of blogging into the limelight, and he is now an anti-bullying advocate who can next be seen on the new reality series Gay Dads of New York.

One of the featured Honorees was Demi Lovato, who celebrated her birthday last August in Kenya for the Free the Children Charity and has overcome bulimia, drug abuse and self-mutilation.

There were honorees at each of the tables, and I had the pleasure of sharing my table with Honoree Melina Garcia, Founder of Union City Music Project, I got to snap a shot of her accepting her award below:

MY TAKE:

I am so happy that a magazine like Cosmopolitan for Latinas is out there, and that they are honoring the Latinas (and Latinos!) that are working zealously to create waves of change for generations to come! There are more photos we didn't have room for, so please visit Ascending Butterfly via our Pinterest Page for more photos! (Any bloggers in attendance who asked me to grab shots of them, you will find those pictures there.) - The Board is named solely by the hashtag #CFLFunFearless and my link takes you straight there.

Butterflies who do you think Cosmopolitan for Latinas should nominate in 2015? (How about The Official Twitter Party DJ for making waves on Twitter? LOL)
