About Me


Why hello! I'm Carmen. But I'm pretty sure you figured out my name by now. :]

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

I've been blogging for six years! It all started my junior year of university with the occasional poem or short story. Now my blog is read globally with readers in 108 countries - that's only within the last 30 days! And I just hit 1,000,000 total page views!

I quit my job in June to pursue my dream of blogging, coaching, & working remotely for myself. I worked as a social media professional for 4 years & found the corporate office environment suffocating, so I decided to make a change.

Fred, my boyfriend of 4.5 years, is freelance writer who has written website content for some pretty cool websites. He blogs occasionally too.

My heart is filled with wanderlust. This year I've seen Yuma, Arizona; Paris, France;  Reno, Nevada. Next up is London in winter. I always keep an eye out for good flight deals, so maybe there's another trip on the horizon. You never know, right?!

I've been vegetarian for 12 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.

Now I'm working as a full time entrepreneur. Follow me through my journey! I'm glad you're here. :]
