About Me


Why hello! I'm Carmen. But you knew that.

I'm a lifestyle blogger, digital influencer, & social media professional based in sunny San Diego. My goal is to share thoughtful, honest posts on style, food, music, travel, entertainment, social media, & everything that makes life an adventure.

I run the social media campaigns & daily review management for a hotel, resort, & timeshare brand with 20 locations throughout California & Hawaii. Still waiting to visit the Hawaii properties, but a girl can dream!

My heart is filled with wanderlust. I currently have two international trips planned for 2017 — Paris in spring & London in winter. I'm always keeping an eye out for good flight deals, so maybe there's another trip on the horizon.

I've been vegetarian for 11 years. I like to binge watch shows on Netflix. I have an ever-growing collection of mugs; my favorite is a cat one from my grandma. I love chocolate covered marzipan & Earl Grey tea.

I believe: aging is a gift we should accept with open arms, macaroni & cheese always should include a side of broccoli, & tea tree oil can cure practically anything.

I live with Fred, my boyfriend of four years. I've been blogging for about six years — three of which I just wrote the occasional poem or short story. Now I juggle a blogging & social media career. Follow me throughout my journey! I'm glad you're here.
