“Stories” For Cosmopolitan Latina Magazine

cosmopolitan latina to launch 2012

Cosmopolitan magazine to launch Cosmopolitan Latina magazine in 2012.

Cosmo: Latinas are Hot

The word is out that spicy Cosmopolitan magazine next year will launch a new magazine, Cosmopolitan Latina, for Spanglish-speaking, bi-cultural American Latinas.

(Kind of like the Tiki Tiki, but with more advertising and way more dirty words…)

Anyway, as reported in the New York Times, Cosmopolitan Latina will launch issues in the Spring of 2012 and Fall 2012. The magazines, 545,000 copies, will be circulated in states with large Latino populations, such as California, Florida, Texas and New York. There also will be Latina-flavored content by Latina bloggers on the Cosmo website and via smart phones.

Given all that, I have come up with suggested stories for Cosmopolitan Latina. I am, after all, a self-professed expert in the Hispanic-American demographic — even if I am a little mas vieja then their young hot cha cha readers.

Tell me what you think.

Suggested Stories for Cosmopolitan Latina

Y Tu?

Can you come up with some suggested titles for Cosmopolitan Latina magazine? (Have fun, and keep them clean-ish, por fa.)

Share, por favor!

Ha! They should hire me…but, if they ask me to be Hot and Spicy, no se.

Angelica Perez says:

Carrie, you had me laughing for hours!!

I say you should have a column on Cosmopolitan Latina’s magazine — one with these type of posts — because we busy Latinas need to laugh a lot more. Laughter is the best therapy for the heart.

I would add another one: “How to Explain to Your Gringo Husband Why You Store the Pots & Pans in the Oven…”

JaJaJaJa!!!
