FROM THE EDITOR

Mercedes laptop Happy New Year! I dedicate this post to our loyal readers and viewers who are making BeChicMag.com a success. When launching in 2006, I envisioned the site to be an online magazine with original content, and that's exactly what it is today. Our goals are being met everyday as we chat with experts in fashion, beauty and entertainment.

In 2009, we spoke with the best in the industry. From Vera Wang (who gives us a very nice shout out), Christian Siriano, to John Leguizamo, Shecky's President Claudia Chan, Beyonce's make-up artist Jackie Gomez, renowned author Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez, DJ Lindsay Luv and many more prominent personalities.

BeChic TV began as an experiment where I spoke directly to my MacBook with the built-in camera reviewing the latest book, movie or make-up product. Today, BeChic TV is more than just tutorials and reviews; it's a lifestyle channel. We produce, shoot and edit our own segments. In 2010, I personally aim to improve my editing skills.

Special thanks to four very chic and talented ladies who expressed interest in contributing. In the upcoming "Who We Are" page you will see the faces behind some of our beauty, shopping, lifestyle and politically conscious stories. But most of all, thanks to you for your support.

The best way to find out about our upcoming features and for exclusive photos and lifecasting videos, follow me on Facebook and Twitter.

May 2010 bring you all much happiness and success, and remember to stay chic!

Xoxo, Mercedes
