Welcome and let’s live it up!

November is the penultimate month of the year, the last one before we get to the Happy New Year hug, it is also the month of gratitude.

There is no better day to be thankful for everything than November 22nd, Thanksgiving! Personally, first of all I thank God for being my guide, and my husband Daniel Bendayán and our families for giving us their support with the creation of Live It Up Doral.

Live It Up Doral is a lifestyle magazine focused on the Doral community. We will keep you informed of everything that happens in our city, news, events, interesting and entertaining articles. We are also digital!

This magazine would not exist without our writers and advertisers. Thanks to those who share their knowledge, teachings and skills with our readers. They are the Doral Police Department, Mayor Juan Carlos Bermúdez, Susie Castillo, Ernesto Avendaño, Vicente Passariello, Dr. Cristina Sabroso, Patty Zerpa and Gustavo Osuna. I also thank Alicia Machado, our first cover, an example of perseverance and constancy. Thanks to our team. Thank you also, dear readers, because this magazine is for you.


Now that we’re done with the thank-you’s, good shopping! Have you already made your lists for Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Don’t forget that the 27th is Giving Tuesday. Very few know that this day exists and is celebrated to promote charity and generosity. It is a good time to donate, volunteer and do charitable works.

By the way, are you following us on social media? We are @LiveItUpDoral and our digital platform is LiveItUpMagazine.com

Welcome and let’s live it up!
